The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  2. Low CapEx Clean NH3 Synthesis for Seasonal Energy Storage and Hydrogen Fuel

    SBC: STARFIRE ENERGY INC            Topic: 12c

    Solar electricity price has dropped dramatically, making it the cheapest electricity to add to the grid in many locations. Its variable nature is now becoming a challenge to integrate into the electricity grid. Affordable, scalable, long-term energy storage is required to enable continued low-cost solar electricity deployment. Solar electricity can be used to make fuel, which provides long term en ...

  3. Improved Ceramic Pebbles for Fusion Blankets Topic:23 Subtopic:b

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 23b

    Skyhaven Systems, LLC proposes to develop a method to improve the overall heat transfer within ceramic pebble beds used in nuclear fusion breeder blankets. The Phase I effort will be used to develop processes for forming non-spherical shaped ceramic pebbles and demonstrating enhanced heat transfer within a packed bed structure. The materials produced in Phase I will be characterized for size, shap ...

  4. Natural Gas Conversion to Acetic Acid

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 22a

    With the discovery of vast quantities of natural gas available in the U.S. comes the opportunity to convert this gas, traditionally used directly as fuel, into more value added products. Ideally on-site conversion to higher value C2 liquids would alleviate gas transportation issues and maximize the utilization of otherwise waste gas. The proposed Phase I SBIR will demonstrate an advanced catalytic ...

  5. Fabrication and Validation of Electrical Components Produced From Covetic Materials

    SBC: NAECO, LLC            Topic: 07c

    Covetic materials are a class of metal-carbon composites whose electrical and thermal conductivity are reported to be up to 40-50% higher than pure metals or alloys. Although covetic materials have been produced from a number of metals including copper, silver and aluminum, their enhanced electrical and thermal conductivities have not yet been demonstrated in real world applications. NAECO, LLC pr ...

  6. 08b_area2_Production_of_Platform_Chemicals_by_Bioconversion_of_Plastic_Waste

    SBC: Southeastern Biochemicals, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    The bulk of post-consumer plastics ends up in landfills or in the environment. In principle, most discarded plastics can be recycled. In practice, the standard approaches generally yield materials that are of lower quality than the initial product, resulting in “downcycling”, or a loss of value. In contrast, we think that a bioconversion process can upcycle plastic waste, yielding value-added ...

  7. 20a. Automated Data Collection and Compression System for CO2 Monitoring Data

    SBC: Petrolern LLC            Topic: 20a

    Over the past two decades, there has been a drastic advance in the sensing technologies and data acquisition systems. These technologies have been deployed in carbon sequestration to continuously monitor CO2 migration and location during and after injection. A complex network of surface and underground sensors is often installed generating large volume of intricate datasets. These datasets require ...

  8. Thin Film Hydrogen Sensor Development, Testing and Integration into Low Cost Wireless Sensing Systems

    SBC: ELEMENT ONE, INC.            Topic: 10c

    There is a growing impetus to increase the use of hydrogen in both advanced power generation and transportation systems. A major technical challenge to solve is improving the safety and effectiveness of systems using hydrogen, and to reduce costly down time due to system shut-downs when hydrogen leaks are detected. There are many tragic examples in industry of undetected hazardous gas discharges l ...

  9. Thulium-Based Ceramic Amplifier for Laser Acceleration

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 28c

    Laser plasma accelerators (LPA) enabled by the Tm laser driver to be developed by this project offer much reduced size and cost compared to conventional accelerators of the same energy. This would drastically cut the cost of high- energy particle research on collider-based facilities and advanced light sources. Planned conventional accelerators (e.g., for the proposed International Linear Collider ...

  10. Smart CORC® cable terminations with integrated quench detection. Topic 23(c).

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 23c

    Advanced magnet systems for fusion would greatly benefit from the use of high-temperature superconductors (HTS). Quench detection in HTS magnets is challenging due to the low quench propagation speed in these materials. Advanced quench detection methods need to be developed to allow safe operation of HTS magnets. This proposal seeks to develop smart terminations for HTS Conductor on Round Core (CO ...
