  1. Rugged, Long-Life Flow Monitoring for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) require drilling deep and hot wells; while making better use of each well through techniques such as fracking and zonal isolation. Establishing a well requires monitoring electronics that can produce temperature, pressure and flow profiles in the ...

  2. Abrasion/Impact Resistant Coatings for Wind Turbine Blade Protection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 15a

    In most wind turbine cases, in the absence of maintenance and repair the polymer composite blades’ service life can be significantly diminished compared to original estimates, and the overall turbine efficiency can severely suffer. Current repair products such as epoxy-based fillers and/or solvent-based paints have very limited abrasion-resistancecapabilities. In addition, wind protection tapes ...

  3. Ruggedized Communication Technology for Enabling High-Temperature Directional Drilling

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 11a

    Geothermal resources have the potential to provide a significant, carbon-free baseload power for the US. Accessing geothermal resources requires drilling operations that must operate at high temperature and are, by nature, high cost; drilling can account for up to 50% of the cost of the development for a geothermal project. When last studied, experts concluded that as much as 200,000 exojoules of ...

  4. Pole-based solar mounting and tracking system for use in cattle production

    SBC: FarmAfield Labs, LLC            Topic: 12e

    Rural areas in the United States have under-developed solar power capabilities relative to urban areas due to challenges matching energy demand centers with underutilized land and consequent cost challenges related to smaller installations that lack economies of scale. This project addresses these problems by proposing solar installations that operate synergistically with livestock production oper ...

  5. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  6. Single Photon Frequency Convertor with High Quantum Efficiency

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: 06a

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to increase the accessibility and range of emerging all-fiber quantum networks by significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in optical quantum networks using fully integrated, single-pass, quantum frequency conversion (QFC). Fiber-based quantum networks, to take advantage of low losses and the wide range of existing network components and infrastructure, are exp ...

  7. Micro-Pulse DIAL for Atmospheric Water Vapor Profiling

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 25b

    Water vapor plays a key role in Earth’s climate and weather patterns. Accurate, high resolution measurements of the water vapor vertical profiles in a region have been found to significantly improve the numerical weather prediction models’ short-term forecasts, precipitation forecasts, as well as severe weather forecasts. However, current measurement techniques provide very coarse resolution i ...

  8. Developing Biomineralization Technology for Ensuring Wellbore Integrity

    SBC: Montana Emergent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Since drilling the earliest gas and oil wells, migration of hydrocarbons to the surface has challenged the oil and gas industry. With the recent onset of geologic CO2 sequestration activities, it has become even more important to develop well leakage mitigation strategies that can seal even microscopic apertures around injection, abandoned, and monitoring wells—especially in cases where traditio ...

  9. Low Tortuosity Electrodes Enabling High Specific Energy Li Ion Batteries

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 13a

    Despite all of the advantages that electric vehicles bring, better battery performance remains a requirement of widespread commercial adoption. Areas of specific interest include improved specific energy and energy density coupled with improved manufacturing processes which reduce costs and increase throughputs. This project aims to demonstrate a unique processing method, freeze tape casting, whic ...

  10. Refinement and Optimization of a Novel Synthesis Method to Semi-Continuously Extrude Pure, Ultra-Long Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for Application as RAD Hard, Light-weight Electrical Conductors and Signal Transmission Lines

    SBC: Nanomatronix, LLC            Topic: 27d

    Bandwidth demands are increasing for a wide variety of data communications systems and applications. Not only are these demands increasing to accommodate residential, commercial, space and defense data communication needs, but they are also increasing for the scientific community at various test centers and research institutions around the world. According to Topic 27d, “High Energy Physics (HEP ...
