  1. SBIR Phase II: Integrated Voltage Regulators for Small Footprint, Efficient Power Delivery in Mobile Electronics

    SBC: Lion Semiconductor            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project seeks to develop integrated voltage regulators (IVR) that are 10 times smaller than existing solutions. Power management ICs (PMICs) are chips in mobile electronic devices that deliver power from the battery to different chips (e.g., processor, memory). Existing PMICs use discrete board-level inductors to efficiently deliver power, bu ...

  2. Development of Corrosion Resistant Prestressed Concrete Strands Utilizing Liquie Plasma Technology

    SBC: CAP Technologies LLC            Topic: 141FH6

    This proposal is to prove the feasibility of a new and novel zinc-based alloyed coating on both the manufactured Grade 270 0.5 and 0.6 low-relaxation strands and for the individual wires used to make the 7-wire strand for prestressed concrete used in bridge construction. The application of the coating will use CAP Technologies LLC [CAP] proprietary and patented foam plasma technology also kn ...

  3. Structured Waveform, Magnetic Field (SWMF) PIG Development for Cracks and Corrosion

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 132PH1

    Multiple major pipeline failures have been caused by seam weld defects not detected by available ILI technology [August 16, 2013 WSJ]. Phase I will demonstrate a game changing capability to deliver internal and external corrosion mapping and seam weld crack detection in a low-cost tool that “encourages more repetitive ILI runs and wider use.” JENTEK’s new through wall imaging method called S ...

  4. Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement Systems (McROMS)

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: 141FR1

    What is needed is a lightweight system that can be deployed and used by one person that will measure and compile the track geometry data and compute the MCO for a rail section in real time without reliance on any external reference. Such a device, the Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement System (McROMS) is the subject of this proposal. But MCO is not the only rail geometry data of interest. If this s ...

  5. Integrated Tracking and Guidance (I-TAG) System for Trenchless Utility Relocation

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Trenchless excavation methods, such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations, offer the potential for significant cost savings on many utility relocation projects; however, these methods require extremely accurate drill head navigation in addition to precise knowledge of existing utility location in order to ensure boring operations do not interfere with existing pipelines or conduits. ...

  6. Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Lignin to High-Value Aromatics

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Significant quantities of biomass are produced annually which represent a huge possible feedstock for biofuels and other valuable chemicals and materials. Numerous industrial processes are available for utilization of the cellulosic fraction of this biomass. However, as much as 40-50% of the biomass is composed of lignin, a cross-linked, aromatic polymer, for which at present there are few economi ...

  7. FlorianEye

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 81

    Based upon the PSI InstantEye sUAV platform, PSI will develop a high performance, low cost tactically employed, small UAV that willprovide on-demand overhead aerial video surveillance to firefighters actively engaged in containing wildfires.

  8. Mobile Factory Design for On-Site Wind Turbine Tower Production

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Larger, taller wind turbines could significantly reduce the cost of wind energy and enable much broader deployment. For example, a recent study from the National Renewable Energy Lab [NREL/TP-5000-61063] showed that increasing tower heights from 96m to 140m would nearly double the available wind resource in the US (adding 1,800 GW) and bring wind development to many areas where it is not currently ...

  9. Development of Non-toxic, Bio-based Antifouling Treatments for the Aquaculture Industry

    SBC: E PAINT COMPANY            Topic: 87

    The objective of the proposed research effort is to develop low-cost, non-toxic, soy-based polymers as vehicles for ePaint photoactive antifouling technology. Phase I research investigates the feasibility of synthesizing soy polymers as water-based emulsions and assessing their utility as photoactive biofouling release coatings. This approach, if successful, will result in an affordable, non-toxic ...

  10. "Cyclodextrin diets for enhancing fish health"

    SBC: DIAMOND V MILLS, INCORPORATED            Topic: 87

    Aquaculture is the fastest growing food-producing sector in the world and accounts forapproximately 50% of the seafood consumed throughout the world. However, the demand for farmraisedfish has pushed fish production densities to new limits and this has increased the incidenceand spread of disease. There have been very few drugs developed for treating and preventingdiseases in fish. We have discove ...
