The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. SBIR Phase I: Designing High-Strength Thermally-Stable Aluminum Casting Alloys for Cylinder Head Applications

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves development of a new family of thermally-stable, high-strength aluminum casting alloys for engine cylinder head applications. There is a strong push globally to improve internal combustion (IC) engine efficiency, through down-sizing, turbo or supercharged boost, and through the use of alternative fuels. All of these approaches increa ...

  3. Non-Destructive Testing Method to Detect Red Plague Within an Insulated Silver-Plated Copper Conductor

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA15024

    We propose to develop a non-destructive test method to identify and quantify the formation of red plague corrosion within an insulated silver-plated copper wire. Cross-linked ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene (XL-ETFE)-insulated silver-plated copper wire demonstrates high performance and is commonly used in military and aerospace applications as hook-up and lead wire, but is prone to galvanic corrosion ...

  4. Large-Area, Multi-Junction, Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells with Backside Contacts

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S301

    In this Phase II program we propose to develop a manufacturable production process to introduce backside contacts to MicroLink Devices? large-area, multi-junction epitaxial lift-off (ELO) solar cells. We will also develop new assembly processes to fabricate flexible Kapton sheets with backside contact ELO solar cells. This enables an important path for cost reduction using fully automated laydown ...

  5. Fast Light Enhanced Active Gyroscopes, Accelerometers and Fiber- Optic Sensors

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S308

    The fast-light effect, produced by anomalous dispersion, has emerged as a highly promising mechanism for enhancing the sensitivity of many devices. It is a potentially disruptive technology with the prospect of revolutionizing the field of precision metrology. We will develop this technology in two parallel paths: A rubidium vapor Raman laser-based Active Fast Light Optical Gyroscope/Accelerometer ...

  6. Cyclotronic Plasma Actuator with Arc-Magnet for Active Flow Control

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: A104

    CU Aerospace and team partner the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign propose to develop a new type of plasma-based flow control actuator, which uses a high-voltage electrode that arcs to a cylindrical grounded electrode within a magnetic field. The result is that an arc plasma can be produced, with a Lorentz force that creates a plasma disc (similar concept to a cyclotron). The thought beh ...

  7. VIS-NIR Lightweight Spectrometer for the Sun and the Moon

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: S103

    EPIR Inc. and Brimrose Technology Corporation propose a miniaturized spectrometer covering the 0.35 to 2.3um wavelength range by integrating a Hg1-xCdxTe (MCT) - based photodetector (PD) with an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF). The goal is to achieve 4um spectral resolution with wide dynamic range to measure both the Sun's and the Moon's radiometric characteristics. Currently the best known in ...
