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. A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    A Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection 3/19/2018 The US energy transport pipeline system is a longstanding distribution network with most of its still standing pipes being installed between the 1950s–1970s. Due to degradation mechanisms, such as embrittlement, capable of causing a two-fold reduction in fracture toughness, pipe rupture is a major risk. Current nondestructive ins ...

  2. Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Proposal title: Rapid Assessment of Air Void System in Fresh Concrete Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume ...

  3. Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Proposal title: Broken Rail Detection from Flashing Rear End Device Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortu ...

  4. Self-Propelled Grain Cart to Increase Yield and Efficiency and Decrease Soil Compaction

    SBC: GS Engineering Inc.            Topic: 813

    Autonomous Vehicle Regulation:The time is ripe for introducing Autonomous Vehicles (AV) to the agricultural market. Michigan is the nation's leader in AV regulations, having passed 5 laws regulating AV operation in 2015 and 2016. On December 9, 2016 Governor Snyder signed into law PA 332 which allows for autonomous operation on any Michigan public road at any time and for any purpose without a ...

  5. A Milk-Based MicroRNA Assay to Stratify BLV Infectiousness in Dairy Cattle

    SBC: Northstar Cooperative, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Milk samples are a rich matrix of diagnostically relevant biomarkers that capture the acute physiology of the dairy cow. Almost all serological ELISAs are applicable in milk and, as forensic technologies continue to become a superior diagnostic tool in the dairy industry, the use of genetic markers in milk are becoming the forefront of dairy molecular diagnostics. Established national DHI sampling ...

  6. Nitrate and Phosphate Biosensor for Handheld Monitoring of Water, Soil and Crops

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            Topic: 84

    NECi proposes to develop a low cost, handheld device similar in form and function to the glucose meters used by diabetics, but for measurement of the plant nutrients nitrate and phosphate. The inexpensive meter will use disposable sensor strips. Sensing is based on immobilized enzyme films "printed" onto the electrode material of the sensor strips. Recombinant enzymes are the sensing agents: nitra ...

  7. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  8. Development of rapid, point-of-use dry chemistry dip-stick assays for food quality. Phase II work will focus on completion of the development of a rapid test for total polar compounds in frying oils.

    SBC: OXFORD BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 85

    Deep-frying is a very popular cooking technique that is used worldwide. Deep-frying gives a crispy texture to food and creates savory flavors. Since it is one of the costlier kitchen commodities, frying oil is typically reused several times before being discarded. Using the oil for long periods of time is bad for the oil, causing it to degrade quickly, depending on the type of food being fried, te ...

  9. Manufacturing of Low-Background Copper Electrical Components for Rare Event Detection

    SBC: GALT LLC            Topic: 30c

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop the manufacturing capability for the production of ultra-low-background copper for use in electronic interconnects and support architecture- Copper is an attractive electronic and support material because of its favorable conductivity and mechanical properties- Fortuitously, the material can also be electroplated with high radiopurity, particularly if the ele ...

  10. Development of Corrosion Resistant Bimetallic Structures for Lead-Bismuth Cooled High Temperature Reactor Systems

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    One of the most promising concepts of advanced high temperature nuclear reactor systems utilizes liquid metal coolants to optimize heat transfer, neutronics, safety, and compactness- Molten lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) is one of the primary candidates for such coolants due to its unique thermo-mechanical and neutronics properties- The structural components of advanced reactors must be corrosion res ...
