We list the government-funded programs awarded to Phasex Corporation. They illustrate our breadth of experience and diverse fields of research. More than $3 Million of SBIR grants has resulted in the generation of the broad knowledge base that  provides a competitive advantage for Phasex and for its customers. This knowledge base reduces development time on any new application, minimizes development expenses, and decreases time to market.

The contracts are listed chronologically, starting with the first SBIR contract, an NSF-funded polymers fractionation program, in 1983. Research on this program led to the first two technical publications of Phasex in 1984, joint publications with researchers from Virginia Polytechnical Institute and State University. (The papers are listed in the publications section). Many of the government-funded programs resulted in publications.
