  1. Increasing the Marketing Efficiency and Profitability of Wyoming's Wool Producers Through Value Adding Under a Local Early Stage Wool

    SBC: Mountain Meadow Wool Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although the state of Wyoming ranks second in the nation in wool production, a commercial scouring facility does not exist in this region. Raw wool, called greasy, is shipped out of the region, and more often out of the country for further processing. Rarely does this Wyoming product ever return to its state of origin. Value is added outside of the state. During Phase II, we will operate a localiz ...

  2. Wind Powered Water Pumping Incorporating Compressed Air Energy Storage

    SBC: Z4 Energy Systems            Topic: N/A

    For over 150 years, windmills have captured wind energy to provide water for stock and human needs in remote locations. However, to manage the unpredictable energy source and ensure daily water supply, a large stock tank is required which leads to increased evaporation. Continuous winds can cause tank overflow and additional wastage. With increasing concern for diminishing water resources, this is ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: High-Speed, Low-Cost Maskless Lithography

    SBC: ALCES Technology, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will research and develop a maskless lithography tool based on the results of the feasibility study. The company has a unique and proprietary approach to achieve higher throughput and lower cost than currently available maskless lithography tools. The approach will employ Line Light Modulator (LLM) to pattern wafers with a linear arra ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Micro-Compliant-Interconnect-Mechanisms (MCIMs)

    SBC: ALCES Technology, Inc.            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I research project investigates the feasibility of using Micro-Compliant-Interconnect-Mechanisms (MCIMs) to provide chip level communication to Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) devices. MCIMs are microscopic spring connectors fabricated directly on silicon wafers which provide an alternative to soldered flip chip technology for interconnecting i ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Hydrogen Production from Wind Power and Coal-Bed Methane (CBM) Water

    SBC: Dixon Ladd LLC            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will explore the feasibility of production of high-quality hydrogen in remote, outdoor locations using locally generated wind power and excess water from coal-bed methane (CBM) wells. After adapting wind survey data from several sources to a specific site in northeast Wyoming, the study will create a multivariate mathematical model to ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Matching the timing of renewable energy production with patterns of electricity demand

    SBC: Dixon Ladd LLC            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I proposal we investigate the feasibility of a software application to search through public wind databases in order to match sites of renewable electricity production with sites of electricity demand. Renewable energy sources like wind and solar are intermittent, but still have clear diurnal and seasonal patterns. This tool will analyze historic data ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Combining Mobility and Manipulation in a Tri-Sphere Robot

    SBC: Square One Systems Design            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I research project explores the utility of a robot predicated on a novel Tri-Sphere design. Robots are playing a progressively more significant role in our modern world. In support of this ascendance, researchers have developed elegant, biologically-inspired robots with an impressive range of capabilities. However, these capabilities often come with da ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: An Advanced Aeroelastic Thermoplastic Composite Blade for Residential-Scale Wind Turbines

    SBC: Z4 Energy Systems            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will determine the technical and economic feasibility of developing residential-scale, variable-speed wind turbines with aeroelastic, thermoplastic composite blades to achieve two key design objectives: improved energy capture in low to medium winds and rotor speed regulation in high winds. In Phase I, a thermoplastic composite will be ...
