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. Improved Joints Based on 3D Fiber Architecture Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Wind blades are complex constructions of composite materials. As with all composite structures, forming joints between the various elements has long been problematic, since composites cannot easily be bolted, fastened, or welded together. Current manufacturing methods result in thick adhesive layers that have varying dimensions and which are the most common failure area in wind blades during opera ...

  2. Recovery Act- Novel Carbon Nanotube Containing Media for Water Separation from B-100 Biodiesel

    SBC: Seldon Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 10c

    Biodiesel is our next generation eco

  3. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend on charge carrier mobility in the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to ultimately improving >10% the efficiencies realized by typical organic solar cells, whether

  4. Recovery Act- Electret Field Enhanced Organic Solar Cells

    SBC: VERSATILIS LLC            Topic: 08d

    A major limiting factor to organic photovoltaic (OPV) solar cell efficiency is exciton diffusion and charge transport, which depend in turn on carrier mobility and the E-fields created internally by the device materials and structure. Versatilis proposes a novel approach to enabling the better OPV cells from leading OPV makers to reach >10% efficiencies, whether

  5. Specially Functionalized Nanomagnetic Particles and Ionic Liquids for Harvesting, Dewatering and Extraction of Lipids and Carbohydrates from Algae

    SBC: Quartek Corporation            Topic: 26d

    This Phase I SBIR project deals with production of biodiesel from microalgae. One of the major costs of biofuel production is harvesting the biofuel from large volumes of culture media. Harvesting, rupturing, drying and extracting oils from algae accounts for 40-60% of the cost of producing. The Proposed Technology will provide a quantum leap in the extraction of fuel producing lipids and carbohy ...

  6. Recovery Act- Utilization of Immobilized Lipase System for Waste Water Reduction in the Bioenergy Industry

    SBC: Piedmont Biofuels Industrial            Topic: 02b

    Existing biodiesel production processes results in very low quality waste water which is high in fats, oils and greases and BOD (biological oxygen demand). This material is most often discharged to city sewer systems, causing problems in the pipes and at the waste water treatment plants themselves. Furthermore, crude biodiesel glycerin, a co-product of the process, has little or negative value, ca ...

  8. Multifunctional Prepregs and Laminated Composites Made by Shear Pressing Carbon Nanotube Arrays

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT36

    A novel method of fabricating carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced polymer matrix composites is proposed. It includes growing super-aligned carbon nanotube arrays on a flat substrate, using NCSU proprietary shear pressing method to compress the grown arrays into a layer of densely packed, highly aligned CNTs inclined at an angle of several degrees to the substrate, separating the produced CNT sheet fr ...

  9. Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

    SBC: STRAD Corporation            Topic: AF083184

    Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce reflections off the target, during Phase I, we have developed two new approaches for discriminating small delay differences from a sequence of radar dwells ...

  10. Laser Beacon for Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) and Combat Identification

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: AF093100

    The proposed multi-spectral IFF beacon will use 40 to 50 % effient high power laser diodes at 863, 1064, and 1550 nm wavelengths. Thermal emitters including diamond-like carbon thin films, photonic crystals, and quantum cascade lasers will be characterized and compared. Finally a model to predict the detection range of IFF beacons will be developed using proprietary emitter power and atmospheric ...
