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. Natural Immune Boosting Compounds as Alternatives to Antibiotics

    SBC: ALTBIOTICS, LLC            Topic: 83

    Routine use of antibiotics at subtherapeutic levels in the livestock industry has been criticized for triggering antimicrobial resistance. FDA has recommended the withdrawal of medically important antibiotics for production practices in the U.S. as of January 2017. Although various alternatives to antibiotics are currently on the market, none is able to match the efficacy of antibiotics. We recent ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Adding Value and Sustainability to the Food Industry: Mealworm Protein Ingredient as Extract and Powder

    SBC: ALL THINGS BUGS LLC            Topic: 85

    Adding Value and Sustainability to the Food Industry: Mealworm Protein Ingredient as Extract and PowderThe goal of this SBIR effort is to contribute value and ingredient diversity to the food industry. The insect based food market is currently valued at $105M and is growing to $1.53 billion by 2021. To date only whole insect powders, not fractionated or extracted protein products made from insects ...

  7. Cloud based watershed and terrestrial ecosystem data management,integration and analytics

    SBC: SUBSURFACE INSIGHTS            Topic: 01c

    Actionable understanding of watershed and ecosystem behavior is required for a wide spectrum of societal and engineering needs by both government entities and commercial entities- These needs include, for example, water resource management, precision agriculture and hydropower- Such actionable understanding requires the ability to numerically model various coupled processes and associated reaction ...

  9. Development of a Novel Infrared Detector for Improved CO2 Subsurface Sequestration Monitoring

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 15a

    Low cost and accurate monitoring of sequestered gases such as CO2 is critical to ensure that these gases are not reentering the atmosphere. Management requires, in part, improved atmospheric and ground monitoring of these greenhouse gases through sensors capable of measuring the subsurface flux, concentration and the carbon isotopologues of CO2 with high accuracy. These Monitoring, Verification an ...

  10. Resonant Cavity Light Emitting Diodes for Infrared Gas Spectroscopy

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 19a

    The predictive skill of reactive transport models of hydrobiogeochemical processes currently being used to simulate the coupled interactions of complex subsurface systems (soils, rhizosphere, sediments, aquifers, the vadose zone and groundwaters) is limited by the accuracy of the model parameters that represent subsurface system structure and intrinsic properties. Robust field testing to validate ...
