  1. SBIR Phase II: Sustainable Rare Earth Element Recycling from Neodymium Magnets

    SBC: Rare Resource Recycling Inc.            Topic: MI

    The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will implement a proprietary rare earth extraction process on recycled NdFeB magnets at pilot scale to prove commercial production feasibility. By recovering rare earth elements (REEs) readily available in waste streams, this effort will help create a secondary source of these critical elements, thereby reducing U.S. dependence on an u ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Zero Thermal Expansion Alloys For Lasers

    SBC: Thermal Expansion Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop new alloys whose thermal expansion properties can be tailored for laser applications. The tailored thermal expansion alloys will prevent shifts in laser output frequencies, i.e. laser color, by preventing the natural temperature-induced thermal expansion and contraction that occurs in laser housings. This temperature stab ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Immediate Delivery of Massive Aerial Imagery to Farmers and Crop Consultants

    SBC: VISUS, LLC            Topic: I

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will accelerate the adoption of data intensive precision agriculture, increasing yields while decreasing farm inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides. This project removes the software bottleneck (time and labor) in processing large aerial surveys taken by Unmanned Aerial Systems, enabling a cost-effective and timely process to deli ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Mobile Manipulation Hospital Service Robots

    SBC: DILIGENT DROIDS, LLC            Topic: SH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project on hospital service robots is improving the quality of care in hospital systems that are under increased pressure to provide high-quality patient-centric care while functioning as profitable businesses. Hospitals face a shortage of qualified nurses and high rates of nurse turnover. Nurses pla ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Spiral Polynomial Division Multiplexing

    SBC: Astrapi Corporation            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is that it addresses the bandwidth crisis, the problem of transmitting an exponentially growing amount of data through a fixed amount of increasingly congested spectrum. The bandwidth crisis limits economic growth by constraining communication, and also poses very serious challenges for national defense and disaster response. Making better us ...

  9. High Rate Ammonia Synthesis by Intermediate Temperature Solid-State Alkaline Electrolyzer (ITSAE)

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Ammonia is not only one of the most produced chemicals worldwide for fertilizer, but also a real carbon-neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), which is important for renewable energy storage and transportation. The well-known traditional Haber-Bosch (HB) process annually generates more than 120 million metric tons of ammonia for fertilizer, with about ~1.0% of the world’s annual energy consumpti ...
