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. Rapid Assessment of Distribution Line Damage via Autonomous UAV

    SBC: Brains4Drones LLC            Topic: 05b

    Two-thirds of all electric outage minutes are weather-related, mostly the result of damage to above ground distribution lines. These outages cost the U.S. economy between $18 and $33 billion per year. We propose to rapidly assess line damage immediately following an extreme weather event using specially equipped unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Efforts to restore power start with the utility’s s ...

  2. Free Piston Linear Motor Whole Air Compressor for Treaty Monitoring

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 04a

    Under the Department of Energy’s Ground-based Nuclear Detonation Research and Development (GNDD R&D) Program, the Air Force Technical Application’s Center (AFTAC) monitors for nuclear explosions through high altitude whole-air gas sampling using compressors to inject air into a high-flow air stream or store in a high-pressure vessel. The existing compressors have proven reliability issues with ...

  3. Development of REBCO-based Symmetric Tape Round (STAR) wire forthe Next Generation High-field Compact Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: AMPEERS LLC            Topic: 26a

    There is substantial interest in the upgrading the existing High Energy Physics accelerators to higher energy levels so as to probe deeper into the subatomic scale and unlock the mysteries of the Universe. Such upgrades to higher energy levels would require use of High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) magnets which can generate magnetic fields levels of 20 T and beyond. Canted Cosine Theta (CCT) b ...

  4. Hydrothermal Catalysis to Flow Process Brown Grease into Biofuels and Biochemicals

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    Brown grease, from trap grease and wastewater floatable mass, has substantial potential as a raw material to produce sustainable biofuels and biochemicals, but high sulfur, water, and impurities contents make processing difficult or end products outside of specifications. A good percentage of brown grease ends up in landfills. This project addresses the ability to turn brown grease into clean prod ...

  5. CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG) and the Earth Battery-- Innovative Geothermal Power Production Using Non-water Working Fluids

    SBC: TerraCOH, Inc.            Topic: 11b

    In topic 11.b, Dispatchable Geothermal Operations, the Department of Energy (DOE) seeks to enable more widespread deployment of geothermal as a dispatchable energy source, permitting expansion of geothermal power in general and as a compliment to growing intermittent energy sources. TerraCOH’s CO2 Plume Geothermal (CPG™) and Earth Battery™ technologies are ideally suited to meet and exceed t ...

  6. Solar Guard

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: 12b

    The SolarGuard project will address the problem of detecting malicious data injection (MDI) attacks on power transmission systems handling solar power. Such attacks could cause the power transmission system to become unstable, leading to blackouts and cascade failures. MDI can also be used to perfom, high-level application attacks disrupting applications in Energy Control Centers, from Energy Mana ...

  7. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Optimization Using Vehicle-to-Cloud Connectivity

    SBC: Macchina, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represent a growing segment of the U.S. passenger vehicle market. An increasing number of PHEV models are available to consumers. PHEVs are similar to parallel hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius in that they have an electric motor and internal combustion engine that are used synergistically to significantly reduce fuel consumption while maintaining a nea ...

  8. Microfluidic Printing of High Performance Microgrids for High Efficiency, Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: Electroninks Incorporated            Topic: 09b

    Currently, indium tin oxide (ITO) is used as the transparent conductive anode in all commercial organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). However, ITO has economic and technological limitations for OLEDs such as high cost, brittleness, and poor performance. The primary objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I proposal is to demonstrate the microfluidic printing of substrate ...

  9. 100 Gbps Radiation Tolerant Optical Transceiver

    SBC: Photon Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: 27d

    High-radiation environments such as the Large Hadron Collider, (LHC) need components which are rad hard to a level of hundreds of Mrad. In addition, because the LHC will receive a high luminosity (HL) upgrade, the data produced will need to be transmitted at the rate of 10’s to 100’s of Tbps. In addition, the solution needs to be low mass. This will be accomplished using an array-able rad hard ...

  10. A near-real-time electromagnetic data-link for geothermal downhole instruments

    SBC: E-Spectrum Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    There exists a need to obtain near-real-time information in a wireless tool configuration to be used in dynamic geothermal well conditions, such as when drilling is in progress. A tool which can provide this near real-time information from sensors located near the bit of the drill string will help reduce the hazards and costs associated with geothermal well development by allowing surface monitori ...
