Award List:

Development of AgeAlert: A Predictive Maintenance Sensor for Electrical Insulation Systems in Nuclear Power Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,750.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
The reliability and economic viability of Generation IV nuclear power plants would be significantly enhanced by a simple, low-cost maintenance technology that can predict the degradation of insulation in electrical-power-system components, such as motors, generators and transformers. Current… More

Development of AgeAlert: A Predictive Maintenance Sensor for Electrical Insulation Systems in Nuclear Power Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$750,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Component failures resulting from degradation within insulation systems represents a significant contribution to reliability and cost issues facing the nuclear power industry. For example, the Electric Power Research Institute found that 37% of motor failures were due to winding failures, many of… More

Award Amount:
$99,960.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Research Institution:
Georgia Tech
RI Contact:
C. P. Wong
Abstract:
Generation IV nuclear power plants will require new condition monitoring methods in order to provide lower installation and operating costs, and continued improvements in operating efficiency. This project will develop a nanotechnology-based sensor that directly detects degradation of electrical… More

Real-Time Health Monitoring for Solid Rocket Motors

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,944.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Kenneth Watkins, President – (706) 864-6304
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: A Health Monitoring Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs) uses actual polymeric components of propellant in a tiny new sensor called AgeAlert. These sensors will provide real-time data corresponding to aging of the propellant. The sensors are mounted external to the propellant and… More
