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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Advanced Manufacturing of Gas Diffusion Layers with Highly Engineered Porosity

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 17b

    Proton exchange membrane fuel cells are exciting for many reasons and are one of the more advanced alternative energy technologies to realize early commercialization – fuel cell powered vehicles are on the road- The gas diffusion layer is a critical component in these fuel cell systems which not only controls water and reactant transport, but contributes to thermal management, and provide electr ...

  4. Permeability control for enhanced oil and gas recovery in unconventional reservoirs using advanced mineral precipitation technologies

    SBC: Montana Emergent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Unconventional oil and gas recovery has succeeded because of the ability to increase permeability in tight source rock via fracturing- While this has led to large increases in resource recovery, the ability to modify fracture apertures to allow finer control of permeability in these rocks has the potential to increase recovery efficiency- This SBIR project focuses on developing and commercializing ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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-resistance capabilities. In addition, wind protection tapes ...

  7. Hybridization of Freeze Casting with Additive Manufacturing for Simplified Production of High Performance SOFCs Topic and subtopic: 18b

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 18b

    Despite enormous advantages of high efficiency and fuel flexibility, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) have seen limited development in mobile, including aerospace, application areas. On the technical front, this condition has been primarily driven by the low specific power density of SOFCs, typically less than 0.5 kW/kg. On the manufacturing front, limitations have been related to catalyst infiltrat ...

  8. Mixed-Phase Cloud Characterization Sensor

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: 17a

    Quantitative measurements of water in all phases are important to the modeling and understanding of clouds. In-situ measurements within the clouds are particularly important to obtain, but the in-situ measurement instrumentation has been too large and heavy to deploy on any platforms except manned aircraft, leading to high experiment costs and reduced observation opportunities. A cloud characteriz ...

  9. A compact, high-performance imaging spectroradiometer

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Statement of the Problem: Large-area, high-resolution hyperspectral imaging is needed to accurately understand the carbon-cycle between the atmosphere and terrestrial systems. To do this cost-effectively, small UAVs will be needed, for which there are currently no hyperspectral imagers that meet both the performance requirement of DOE and the size/weight requirements for deployment on small UAVs. ...

  10. Lidar-based high resolution 3D imager and remote gas sensor: a new paradigm for terrestrial environmental monitoring

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 18e

    Predictive modeling and understanding of the response and resilience of the terrestrial environment to both climate change and human intervention is critical for sustainable management of natural resources. However, measurement and modeling of terrestrial environments is challenging due to the complexity and multitude of interactions occurring among plants, microbes, minerals, migrating fluids, a ...
