Single Unit Blood Warmer
'AFRL and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research process in an attempt to speed up the experience, broaden the pool of potential applicants and decrease bureaucratic overhead. Beginning in SBIR 18.2, and now in 19.2, the Air Force has begun offering 'Special' SBIR topics that are faster, leaner and open to a broader range of innovations.'
As part of this new streamlined experience, Delta Development has been awarded a SBIR Phase I contract for the Single Unit Blood Warmer. The SUBW will aid in the mission to bring fresh whole blood further forward by offering a way to rapidly heat and deliver blood without the logistical challenges of other proprietary devices.
