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. SBIR Phase II: Low-Voltage Poling of Waveguides in Nonlinear Optical Materials

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop the processing steps for the fabrication of highly quality periodically poled waveguides in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP). Periodically poled waveguides enable highly efficient, quasi-phase matched (QPM), nonlinear optical wavelength conversion of continuous wave and high-peak power quasi- continuous lasers. The fabrication process, established during t ...

  2. Ultra-Stable Miniature Seed Laser for High Power Nd:YAG Lasers

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this effort is to develop a compact, rugged, electrically efficient, tunable semiconductor laser for the purpose of injection seeding Nd:YAG lasers in NASA lidar systems for remote sensing and atmospheric profiling. A highly stable low power seed laser plays a crucial role in these systems by keeping the high power, Q-switched, Nd:YAG laser at a fixed wavelength and single mode. In add ...

  3. Monolithic Micro-Laser With KTP Ridge Waveguides for Injection Seeding High Power Lasers

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: E102

    This NASA Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a technique to greatly improve the direct coupling of a diode laser to an optical waveguide with embedded Bragg grating using no intermediate lenses. The key innovation proposed for this SBIR effort is a method for generating adiabatic tapers at the input end of optical waveguides in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP). This ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: High Performance Laser Deflector Using Stoichiometric Electro-Optic Materials

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will use the electro-optic (EO) effect, in which an electric field changes the index of refraction of a nonlinear material, in a novel manner to create a beam deflector with very favorable properties for laser beam scanning and steering. Large angle deflections have been achieved through new multi-stage designs, and 10-GHz scan rates ...

  5. Performance of Innovative Native Seed Harvester

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Every year natural and man-caused disturbances (wildfire, construction of highways and facilities, mining, noxious weeds infestation, and overgrazing) damage and destroy millions of hectares of native vegetation. These vast disturbances require restoration and federal entities emphasize the use of native plant materials. Without restorative intervention, land recovery may take decades, leaving eco ...

  6. Robust Bearings and Gears

    SBC: ARCOMAC SURFACE ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF04142

    Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without any lubricant whatever. Current materials and coatings that meet some of these conditions fail when subjected to the others. Now a breakthrough in surface engineering technology can precisely control deposition of c ...

  7. Linear Incendiary Device and Method of Prescribed Fire Ignition

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    Solutions to help overcome the present limitations in conducting prescribed burning could help land managers in their efforts to accomplish needed fuels reduction in the forests. Opportunities exist for developing improvements in the methods and materials used in the ground-based ignition of prescribed fires. Improved ignition techniques could enable managers to conduct burns at times where weathe ...

  8. Honey Bee Fast Response System for Broad Band Detection of Airborne Toxicants.

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A03160

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project is to develop a broad band detection system for air toxicity. Our overall objective is to show that honey bee orientation and locomotor behaviors can be used as reliable and measurable indicators of certain airborne toxicants. Locomotor sufficiency and directional orientation are behaviors that should unambiguously indicate toxicant exposu ...

  9. Honey Bee Fast Response System for Broad Band Detection of Airborne Toxicants.

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A03160

    This project's objective is to develop honey bee colonies as broad band, wide area detectors of airborne toxicants. Phase I focused on identifying behavioral endpoints that assess the locomotor and task solving performance of 'exposed' foragers returning to the hive. Preliminary results indicate that speed of maze navigation and recognition of 'exposed' foragers by entrance guard bees hold prom ...

  10. Phase II: VAM-Gro: Alternative Growth Media to Promote VAM Colonization

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VAM inoculum is commonly specified for large-scale plant production contracts throughout the United States, including revegetation efforts associated with fire rehabilitation, mine reclamation, conservation plantings, contaminated site cleanup, and other activities. These activities represent a continuous expenditure of public and private funds worth several hundred-million dollars annually. A maj ...
