  1. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Enhancing Starch Quantity and Quality in Hybrid Grain Sorghum

    SBC: Caisson Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project developes methods to molecularly abort sorghum embryos, early in their development, to redirect nutrients, normally used for embryo development, toward starch accumulation. The research will construct and test genetic cassettes necessary for aborting embryo development in seeds and identify sorghum lines possessing high tissue culture regener ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays

    SBC: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...

  7. STTR Phase I: A Simple and Innovative Approach to the Synthesis of Metal, Alloy, Metal Oxide, and Mixed-Metal Oxide Nanoparticles

    SBC: Cosmas, Inc.            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project addresses the scale-up to kilogram quantities of a novel university laboratory solid-state method of synthesizing metal oxide and metal nanoparticles by mixing common chemical starting materials and baking the resulting precursor material at modest temperatures; and the dispersment of the loosely agglomerated particles for comm ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: PiezoElectric Actuation System for Upper Limb Prosthetics

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project develops a new technology for prosthetic arm components, using a lightweight piezoelectric actuator. A piezoelectric actuator will be developed to drive a prosthetic hand. Available arm prostheses have up to three powered degrees-of-freedom, but are sometimes considered too heavy and noisy for their disabled wearers. Lightweight and quiet pie ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Multi-Environment Probability Density Function (PDF) Method for Modeling Turbulent Combustion Using Detailed Chemistry

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will extend the applicability of the multi-environment probability density function (MEPDF) method to model turbulent combustion problems with realistic chemical kinetics within comprehensive Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulations of practical combustion equipment. The project aims to further advance the MEPDF method by extendi ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: T-Splines for Surface Intersection

    SBC: T-Spline Company            Topic: IT

    This SBIR Phase II project addresses what is considered to be a significant unsolved problem in the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) industry; the fact that many CAD models contain numerous small, unwanted holes or gaps. These gaps occur most often along the seams where two surfaces in a CAD model meet, such as where a wing meets the fuselage of an airplane, and result from fundamental mathematical lim ...
