  1. SBIR Phase II: Durable Superhydrophobic Smart Coating with Active Corrosion Protection

    SBC: SYNMATTER LLC            Topic: MI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to dramatically improve the corrosion protection of metal assets vital to the energy and transportation industries. Corrosion contributes to the loss of structural integrity of metal structures, which poses a risk to human safety and the surrounding environment. Metal corrosion costs an es ...

  2. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing


    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if complex flow patterns exist, which is common. Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of perfo ...

  3. Low Cost Resin Technology for the Rapid Manufacture of High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Composites

    SBC: TRIMER LLC            Topic: 13f

    According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office, a 10% reduction in vehicle weight can result in a 6% to 8% fuel-economy improvement. Replacing cast iron and traditional steel components with lightweight polymer composites can directly reduce the weight of a vehicle’s body and chassis by up to 50% and therefore reduce fuel consumption. Lightweighting of vehicle structu ...

  4. Cross-polarized Near-UV/Vis Detector for In-line Quality Control of PEM Materials


    Modern fuel cells have been in development since the 1960s and stand on the cusp of commercialization, but are held back by high manufacturing costs and expensive catalysts. Membrane costs alone can account for as much as 45% of the total cost of a commercial fuel cell system. Furthermore, manufacturing defects in the membrane can cascade into complete stack failure, which is expensive and time co ...

  5. Routine Sample Reduction for Commercial Nuclear Power

    SBC: H3D            Topic: 33e

    The commercial nuclear power industry is threatened by pricing pressure from cheap natural gas. There is an urgency to reduce operational cost in the industry which is dominated by skilled labor. One labor intensive task is the monitoring of the primary reactor coolant chemistry. This effort aims to address that problem in two ways: by reducing the need for personnel to physically acquire and meas ...

  6. Mass Production Demonstration of Aluminum Brake System for OEM Applications

    SBC: LiteBrake Tech, LLC            Topic: 13e

    Public awareness of energy saving and environmental concerns raises the demand for better fuel efficiency and weight reduction of vehicles. Weight reduction must also be cost effective for consumers, meet or exceed current and planned safety requirements, meet consumer expectations for vehicle performance and durability. The current brake systems consisting of rotors and calipers made of cast iron ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Thermal Drawing of High-Performance Bandpass Filters for High-Volume Applications

    SBC: Everix, Inc.            Topic: PH

    The broader impact of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to ultimately reduce the cost of manufacturing of high-performance optical filters, a key component in many emerging technologies. The cost can be reduced by over 10x at high volumes. This will enable widespread use of many devices, such as medical diagnostic tools, sensors for robotic systems, and other appli ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Atom-based magnetic field monitor for turbo-generator fault protection

    SBC: Rydberg Technologies LLC            Topic: MI

    The broader impact of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to improve the reliability of electric power generation. Steady, uninterrupted service of power plants is often taken for granted in the economy, national security, and private use. The proposed product improves electric-power reliability by detecting a source of potential catastrophic failure of generator ov ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Novel Field Drug Test System for Law Enforcement

    SBC: IDEM, LLC            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to develop technology that will improve law enforcement (LE) effectiveness in combatting the U.S. illegal drug epidemic, which contributed to over 67,000 drug overdose deaths in 2018. An affordable, effective field drug test system, superior to conventional color test kits and Raman-based ...

  10. Fabrication of cylindrical copper waveguides with sub-millimeter internal corrugations

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Over the last couple decades, powerful X-ray photon sources have been built and made available to the broad scientific community. These large (national laboratory scale) tools allow users to address some of the most important basic and applied research challenges. Even more powerful hard x-ray facilities are being designed. Many of these new facilities will rely on Wakefield accelerators to genera ...
