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. Expanding Tyto Online: Earth & Space Science Quests & Sandbox for Middle School

    SBC: Immersed Games, Inc.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In prior research and development, the developers created Tyto Online, an online multiplayer sandbox game where middle school students engage in quests to apply life science learning. This project will extend the game by developing a prototype for the Earth and Space science domain, with a prototype including quests for the Climate and Weather topic aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NG ...

  2. Capacitive removal of PFOA and PFOS from Drinking Water

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) have been used commercially since the 1940’s due to their high level of chemical stability, almost frictionless surface or waterproofing characteristics. Elevated levels of PFCs have been linked to cancer and other health problems including reproductive and developmental risks. PFOA and PFOS are amongst the most prevalent of the PFCs with low l ...

  3. Phytoremediation of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) via phytoextraction

    SBC: NUTTER & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 17NCER3A

    NAI has a strategy to identify plant species best suited for proof-of-concept testing for phytoremediation of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) via phytoextraction. Phytoextraction refers to the uptake and translocation of contaminants in the soil by plant roots into the aboveground portions of plants. Once the phytoextraction concepts are proven at the bench-scale (Phase I) and followed with succe ...

  4. Novel Remediation Technique for PFAS contaminated Soil and Sediment

    SBC: QMetry Corporation            Topic: 17NCER3A

    Both chemicals Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) are very persistent, toxic, and bio-accumulate in the environment and human body. PFAS can end up in soil from multiple sources, often mixed with other pollutants. Because of their unique lipid- and water-repellent characteristics, PFOS and PFOA are used as surface-active agents in various high-temperature applicatio ...

  5. Determining Students' Academic Engagement while Completing Learning Activities and Assessments

    SBC: Tutorgen, Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of D-TECH, a system to determine students' level of academic engagement while completing computer-based learning activities and assessments. The prototype will integrate within existing third party computer-based programs (e.g., online courseware, educational games, simulations, intelligent tutors) and will consist of a ...

  6. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: GREEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Commonly used water treatment approaches to mitigate phosphorus pollution and its consequences in small watersheds include the use of chemicals to precipitate phosphorus or algaecides to terminate algal growth. Both approaches require the addition of chemicals to the waterbodies resulting in biomass/sludge build-up, solid precipitates and/or potential toxicity from added metal salts. There is a hi ...

  7. Photo-electro-catalytic Nano-air Filtration

    SBC: Advanced Technologies & Testing Laboratories Inc            Topic: 14NCER1C

    Advanced Technologies & Testing Laboratories (ATTL) proposes to develop a self‐regenerative nano-air filtration technology to not only remove gaseous pollutants from the air, but also to destroy them and regenerate the filter. The proposed technology will involve the further development of a photo‐electro‐chemical air filtration platform, which already has been developed into a highly effect ...

  8. Phosphorus Removal and Recovery through Newly Developed Adsorption Technology

    SBC: Green Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: 14NCER4A

    Much attention has been focused of late on phosphorus pollution and algae blooms. However, the problems of phosphorus mining and consumption are much more complex and can be categorized into two distinct areas of concern: (1) phosphorus’ critical role in food production and the dwindling supply of phosphate rock reserves; and (2) the mining and use of phosphate and the environmental impact of ph ...

  9. Surface plasma-based decontamination for pathogen removal from water pipes

    SBC: Surfplasma, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER7A

    More than 280 million Americans depend on the safety of the tap water provided by their local water systems. Ensuring that safe, uncontaminated water flows through the tap means ensuring that the water flowing through the pipes connected to these taps is also kept uncontaminated. However, a common problem that ails most of these water pipes is biofilm formation, causing the water flowing through t ...

  10. Developmental Neurotox Assay using Scalable Neurons and Astrocytes in High Content Imaging

    SBC: ARUNA BIOMEDICAL, INC.            Topic: B

    There is unmet need for rapid, cost effective in vitro methods to identify chemicals that pose a hazard to the human brain. A number of in vitro assays utilizing primary cells have been tested in an effort to devise effective models to prioritize chemicals for further in depth toxicity studies. However, isolation of primary human neural tissue is cost and labor intensive, and cannot be produced in ...
