Award List:

Automated Hybrid Microwave Heating for Lunar Surface Solidification

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Shawn M. Allan, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,817.00
Abstract:
This SBIR project addresses the need for a system that will provide automated lunar surface stabilization via hybrid microwave heating. Surface stabilization is paramount to future lunar missions due to severe complications from dust on the Apollo space missions. This project focuses on… More

SBIR Phase I:Ultra High Temperature Microwave Processing of Ceramics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Holly S. Shulman, BS
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop microwave thermal containment packages for processing of ultrahigh temperature (UHT) nanomaterials using microwave energy. The Phase I work will also assess the strength and wear resistance of key materials processed with this… More

Lower Cost Approach for Production of Improved Performance Ceramic Armor Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Morgana Fall, Operations Engineer
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
There is a need for higher temperature, lightweight armor to be used in the U.S. Marine Corps EFV. Ceralink proposes to develop a polymer-ceramic composite to meet the needs of this and many other applications. The ultrahigh temperature polymer is commercially available and possesses outstanding… More

SBIR Phase I: Microwave Heating of Reaction-Bonded Silicon Carbide Ceramics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Shawn M. Allan
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses the need for lower cost ceramic materials, specifically for reaction-bonded silicon carbide (RBSC) products. RBSC is used in a multitude of applications ranging from kiln furniture to body armor inserts to ultra-high purity… More

Microwave Processed Multifunctional Polymer Matrix Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Holly S. Shulman, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,984.00
Abstract:
NASA has identified polymer matrix composites (PMCs) as a critical need for launch and in-space vehicles, but the significant costs of such materials limits their use. This proposal addresses the need for lower cost PMCs through the development of discontinuous fiber reinforced polymer composites… More

SBIR Phase II: Ultra High Temperature Microwave Processing of Ceramics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Holly S. Shulman
Award Amount: $499,857.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project addresses the need for breakthrough technologies in the production of ultrahigh temperature (UHT) ceramics, including nanograin structures, with improved performance-to-cost ratio. UHT ceramics are often challenging to densify. The… More

Carbon Aerogel Natural Gas Sorbent Energy Storage Material

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Drew Spradling, Mr.
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Unprecedented reserves of natural gas have recently been unlocked from previously uneconomical shale formations in the United States, leading to a rapid decline in the price of this fossil fuel energy source. In the U.S., natural gas vehicle utilization has been limited by several factors, including… More
