  1. High Temperature By Design (HTBD) Techniques for a Reliable, High Performance Microcontroller

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: AF182061

    Advanced turbine engine designs with distributed engine controls aim to place microcontroller processing for smart sensing and actuation electronics in high temperature regions of the turbine engine. Prior microcontrollers rated for high temperature operation have required integrated circuit processes designed for high temperature from the foundry, which require significant foundry investment for ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: AbGrab Laparoscopic Lifting Device

    SBC: Lapovations, LLC            Topic: MD

    This SBIR Phase I project supports development of an innovative device for use in laparoscopy (minimally invasive surgery of the abdomen). Laparoscopic injuries most often occur during primary port entry, before visualization into the abdominal cavity is possible. Injuries are primarily to the bowel or vasculature and are very serious, with mortality rates up to 5% for bowel injuries and up to 15% ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Anti-Microbial Graphene Oxide Nanofiltration Membrane

    SBC: CatalyzeH2O LLC            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project results from the ability to design a reusable nanofiltration membrane platform for wastewater treatment. Energy-efficient and effective wastewater treatment for water purification and reuse remains a tremendous challenge because safe and reliable approaches are often capital and energy intensive. The ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Swarm 3D Printing and Assembly for Autonomous Manufacturing

    SBC: AMBOTS, INC.            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to develop a swarm 3D printing and assembly (SPA) platform via the cooperation of multiple 3D printers and assembly robots. The SPA platform provides a new approach for faster and affordable large-size printing with multiple materials. It addresses several major barriers (e.g., limited prin ...

  6. Ruggedized Communication Technology for Enabling High-Temperature Directional Drilling

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 11a

    Geothermal resources have the potential to provide a significant, carbon-free baseload power for the US. Accessing geothermal resources requires drilling operations that must operate at high temperature and are, by nature, high cost; drilling can account for up to 50% of the cost of the development for a geothermal project. When last studied, experts concluded that as much as 200,000 exojoules of ...

  7. Advanced Locomotive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 121FR3

    At present, trains use various dissipative braking systems to slow and stop, and this significant braking energy is ultimately converted to heat and wasted. APEI, Inc. has proposed a hybrid tender which can capture and reuse a significant fraction of this braking energy (at least 50%). The hybrid tender draws power from the rails using a regenerative braking technique rather than by being electr ...

  8. ElectroDynamic Shield for Prevention of Optical Surface Contamination

    SBC: Poly Adaptive LLC            Topic: 122FR2

    The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program uses optical systems such as cameras or laser-based systems to monitor rail performance throughout the country. These systems are hindered by adverse weather conditions that allow water, dirt and mud to coat their optical components resulting in unwanted maintenance costs. Thus FRA is seeking a low-cost, practical s ...

  9. Production of a New Vaccine for Poultry to Prevent Salmonella

    SBC: SEA STAR INTERNATIONAL, LLC            Topic: 83

    Despite concerted efforts on both the part of the food industry and Federal regulators, already in 2011 there have been Salmonella foodborne illnesses in 31 U.S. states. Salmonella is a leading cause of foodborne illness. It is responsible each year for an estimated 1 million illnesses, 19,336 hospitalizations and 378 deaths. Salmonella associated outbreaks are primarily related to poultry meat an ...

  10. Using A Modified Grain Silo To Power A Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

    SBC: AGRI WIND TURBINES, LLC            Topic: 86

    Global electricity from wind power will reach 12 percent by 2050, requiring 3.2 trillion dollars to be invested over the next 40 years. In 2009, wind power additions in the United States were valued at 21 billion dollars, reaching nearly 10GW of new capacity. Despite the financial crisis in 2009 and the significant reductions in wholesale electricity prices that began in mid 2008, cumulative wind ...
