Award List:

Power regenerative suspension systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David Diamond, VP Business Development &
Award Amount: $69,876.00
Abstract:
This project will demonstrate the feasibility of using regenerative suspension technology with semi-active control capabilities to both harness waste energy from military vehicle suspensions and simultaneously improve ride quality/handling. The proposed effort includes modeling, simulation, and… More

SBIR Phase I:Integrated Hydraulic Suspension Energy Recovery System for Hybrid Trucks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Zackary Anderson, DSc
Award Amount: $180,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop a hydraulic regenerative shock absorber and charge system for hybrid trucks. An appreciable amount of energy is lost in a typical suspension as heat, especially in heavy vehicles. Existing technologies have been… More

SBIR Phase II: Integrated Hydraulic Suspension Energy Recovery System for Heavy Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Zackary Anderson
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a fully functional turnkey regenerative semi-active shock absorber for heavy-duty transit buses and other commercial vehicles. An appreciable amount of energy is lost in a typical suspension as heat, especially in… More

Power regenerative suspension systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Zackary Anderson, Chief Operating Officer – (617) 313-0919
Award Amount: $505,667.00
Abstract:
In this Phase 2 SBIR, we will build 3 sets of regenerative, semi-active shock absorbers, install them on a test HMMWV, and demonstrate damping, energy regeneration, and durability in a field test. The Company will advance semi-active control algorithms, and prepare the combination of mechanical… More
