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. Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon Displays

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    This proposal outlines the development of a precision instrument for calibrating satellite based imaging sensors – the Hyperspectral Image Projector. The HIP instrument is capable of producing realistic, standards-based satellite imagery simultaneously projecting spectral spatial scenes. This proposed effort will concentrate on the spectral engine of the HIP, with the goal of produ ...

  2. A Stochastic Integration Toolkit fo rComprehensive Global Weather and Climate Models

    SBC: ARGOS INTELLIGENCE, LLC            Topic: 823

      Stochastic parameterization of large scale models is becoming an important tool for evaluating climate predictability and for enabling accurate representation of effects of micro-scale and short time physics on long time climate statistics. The models currently used to evaluate climate risk do not incorporate these stochastic effects, but represent multi-year development and collaborat ...

  3. Low Cost, Compact, Direct Detection Wind and Temperature Lidar for Measurements in the Boundary Layer

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: 845

    Monitoring and forecasting of atmospheric winds within the United States provides protection from severe weather conditions, enables the safe operations of airports, provides the ability to predict wildfire evolution, and the dispersion of hazardous material plumes. However, the current NOAA National Profiler Network (NPN) is limited in spatial extent and is temporally and spatially very spar ...

  4. Climate Information Management (CIM) Toolkit

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    State governors recognized the need for drought information, which resulted in the implementation of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). Other government efforts provide climate services in order to monitor, forecast, and mitigate the impacts of climate. In response to the SBIR request for a “Robust Software Data Integration Tool in Support of the NIDIS and ...

  5. Field Rail Welding with the Electroslag Welding Process

    SBC: EST&D LLC            Topic: 101FR5

      The two most frequently used field rail welding processes, thermite and flash-butt, have limitations.  The thermite process, though less expensive and more portable, sometimes produces welds with inclusions which can limit short term quality and long term fatigue life.  Flash-butt, which produces a very high quality weld, is not as portable as thermite.  SBIR solicitation 10. ...

  6. Transportation Vehicle Waste Heat Recovery System

    SBC: MMPG LLC            Topic: 101FT1

      A one-cylinder diesel engine will be modified to achieve a 20% to 40% improvement in fuel efficiency.  This will be accomplished by insulating the interior of the combustion chamber with a proprietary thermal insulating material.  Heat normally transferred to the engine coolant through the walls of the head, cylinder and piston will be retained within the combustion chamber where ...

  7. Cost-Effective Biomass Conversion via an Online Carbohydrate Monitoring Device

    SBC: ADVANCED MICROLABS, LLC            Topic: 88

    Biomass is a renewable resource with high potential to achieve cost effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly energy to the American consumer, but yet is still deemed inefficient. First, current methodologies only allow conversion of cellulosic materials into biofuel, leaving energy-rich hemicellulosic material unutilized. Second, even though carbohydrate conversion is the focus of biomass ...

  8. Regenerable Ethylene Removal

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    Fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers are transported and stored in refrigerated containers. As the produce ripens, ethylene gas is produced, which further ripens the product and can lead to premature spoilage. Most fruits and vegetables emit ethylene gas which promotes ripening. Certain species, such as apples and bananas, produce more ethylene than others. Elevated ethylene levels can significant ...

  9. Retrofit Emissions Control Technology for Agricultural Diesel Sources

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 84

    Agricultural equipment powered using hydrocarbon fuels emit VOCs, CO, soot, particulates, and NOx. However, controlling and reducing these emissions can impose a heavy economic burden on farmers and the agricultural industry. For example, equipment powered by two cycle engines cannot economically employ catalytic converter technology for highway gasoline and diesel engines. Thus, economic control ...

  10. ALDER GENETIC IMPROVEMENT FOR THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST FOREST PRODUCTS INDUSTRY

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: 81

    Red alder is the predominant commercial hardwood species of the Pacific Northwest. It is an early successional species that rapidly regenerates following fire or clearcutting and normally precedes the establishment of the historically preferred Douglas-fir. As such, past conifer forestry management practices were designed to speed the transition to Douglas-fir through alder eradication efforts. Co ...
