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. An Analytical Technology Platform to Identify Symbiotic Interactions Between PGPR and Root Microbiome Members from Biofuel Feedstocks

    SBC: Powers & Zahr, LLC            Topic: 22a

    The overall goal of this STTR proposal is to establish a commercial microwell technology for high-throughput screening and characterization of interactions that are critical to plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) survival and function. PGPR can be used to improve crop stress tolerance by enhancing root function; providing nutrient uptake, nitrogen fixation, hormone regulation, and suppress ...

  2. Modular Radiological Survey Imaging System (MRSIS)

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 16c

    There is a need for compact and light-weight radiation detectors that can be mounted on drone technologies to perform remote and/or geo-mapping. Remotely-controlled systems have a proven record of entering dangerous environments in support of search-and-rescue or similar operations. These environments may instead contain sources of radiation; yet, few attempts have been made to incorporate radiati ...

  3. Wide-Bandgap Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    There is a need for high-efficiency, radiation hard, high-temperature neutron detectors at nuclear reactor and nuclear physics facilities. Nuclear physic experiments require neutron detectors that are robust, compact, low-power, and have high-sensitivity, while stably operating in harsh environments, e.g., high-temperature and high radiation-dose. Wide-bandgap semiconductors will tolerate such env ...

  4. ADVANCED MANUFACTURING OF MICRO POCKET FISSION DETECTOR (MPFD)

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 29a

    A need exists for advanced instrumentation neutron-flux mapping with in the reactor-core for the Transient REActor Test (TREAT) facility and Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) experiments supporting advanced nuclear material testing. In addition, many U.S. research reactors and industrial power nuclear-reactors would benefit from in-core neutron-flux monitoring. Here it is proposed to research advanced M ...

  5. ICE Ignition Using Transient Plasma Acceleration

    SBC: ARC TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: 17e

    Lean-burn gasoline engines have difficulty reliably igniting fuel mixtures at sufficiently high air to fuel ratios. Common ignition systems are based on a spark gap driven by a pulse transformer ignition coil). Unfortunately, these systems have small plasma excitation areas, are slow, wear down the spark plug electrodes, and are not suitable for high pressure engines. The use of transient plasma i ...

  6. Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector Arrays for Neutron Scattering Measurements

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    There is a need for high-resolution, high-efficiency, and high-rate neutron imaging detectors at neutron scattering facilities. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory Spallation Neutron Source neutron scattering instruments the VULCAN Engineering Diffractometer, the TOPAZ Crystal Diffractometer, and the Liquid and Magnetic Reflectometer; these instruments need thermal-neutron detecting array ...

  7. Late Award- Field-Assembled Component-Based Rotor Blades

    SBC: Wetzel Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    The utility-scale wind industry is evolving towards very large ( & gt;4MW) machines with blades longer than 70m for both land-based and off-shore installations. There is a rapid ramp in cost associated with ground transportation of blades longer than 65m, rising to a threshold that is considered practically prohibitive for blades longer than 75m. Managing the quality of such large blades usin ...

  8. Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector Arrays for Neutron Scattering Measurements

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    The objective of this project is to design and build a high-efficiency neutron detector array consisting of 3000 pixels, with each pixel being 100 microns wide and 4 cm tall, all based on the microstructured semiconductor neutron detector (MSND) technology. The MSND technology resulted in over 40 publications, three allowed patents, one patent pending, and recently received an R & amp;D 100 aw ...

  9. Field-Assembled Component-Based Rotor Blades

    SBC: Wetzel Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    Wetzel Engineering, Inc., proposes research and development to engineer very large wind turbine rotor blades for land-based machines that avoid expensive and logistically challenging transportation requirements. The proposed solution combines two technologies: Sectional component-based assembly of large wind turbine rotor blades ( & gt;65m length) using design approaches adapted from aerospac ...

  10. Hydrogen/Bromine Energy Storage System

    SBC: TVN Systems, Inc.            Topic: 1

    "It is our objective to develop a cost effective, durable and reliable hydrogen-bromine flow battery system for small-scale electrical energy storage applications. H2/Br2 flow battery technology has been around for decades, however, the lack of low-cost and durable electrode and membrane materials in addition to non-optimal cell/stack configurations have prevented this technology from widespread d ...
