The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Characterizing Watershed Health Using Heterogenous Data

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: 01b

    In order to better understand and protect watersheds, we must: 1) Collect data characterizing these systems; 2) Analyze these data in an integrated and holistic fashion to characterize the state of the watershed in a meaningful and actionable way; and, 3) Leverage this characterization to build predictive models capable of anticipating the response of a watershed to specific events including, e.g. ...

  2. Isogeometric Analysis for Nuclear Engineering

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: 03b

    Finite element analysis (FEA) is severely underutilized in the mining industry. The complexity of the physics and the geometry of mining problems is not suitably handled by the faceted mesh descriptions commonly used in other industries, such as automotive and aerospace. Furthermore, the time required to convert computer-aided design (CAD) files and geologic survey data to FEA is prohibitively lon ...

  3. High Energy Micron Scale Pixel Hybrid Detector

    SBC: Farrier Microengineering LLC            Topic: 14a

    Currently available X-ray imaging detector products are limited in resolution, quantum efficiency, and dynamic range, particularly for X-ray energies above 30KeV. The current performance limitations inhibit progress in understanding complex nanoscale structures in materials through diffraction and tomographic imaging techniques. A new, high resolution, direct X-ray detection image sensor will be e ...

  4. High Performance Computing of Completion and Near-Wellbore Erosion

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 21b

    The production from oil and gas wells is strongly affected by the network of fractures made in the reservoir by hydraulic fracturing and pre-existing natural fractures. Hydraulic and other boundary conditions often favor the predominant growth of one fracture at the expense of growing a number of fractures. This biasing worsens due to erosion of the perforations in the casing and surrounding mater ...

  5. Providing Actionable Intelligence from Multi-Modal, Multi-Scale Data in Agriculture

    SBC: Arva Intelligence Corp            Topic: 01a

    As an industry, agriculture is rapidly adopting modern data collection and analysis procedures to help guide farming practices. Despite the increasing amounts of data in agriculture and almost universal adoption rates of major seed, synthetic fertilizer, and chemical innovations, worldwide crop yield growth rates have plateaued to less than 1% annually. This increased data on multiple aspects of c ...

  6. Development of High-Fidelity Numerical Models for Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustion

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 22d

    Existing thermodynamic cycles used for electricity generation from fossil fuels are based on the steam-based Rankine cycle. The additional costs of carbon capture (i.e. CO2 capture), associated with add-on equipment to these existing generators, are significant and will ultimately limit the utilization of our nations’ vast resources of fossil fuels for future production of zero carbon emissions ...

  7. Web-Interfaced Molecular Dynamics Simulation Platform with Machine-Learning-Algorithms-Empowered Force-Fields

    SBC: LIFE-E, LLC            Topic: 18a

    First-principles molecular dynamics yields accurate predictions but is too expensive for large materials systems, while molecular dynamics with empirical force fields could scale up to very large systems but its reliability is usually questionable. Currently it remains lacking for a web-based platform to enable the development of accurate and efficient algorithms for molecular dynamics simulations ...

  8. Enhanced Precision in Geothermal Reservoir Characterization and Exploitation

    SBC: Introspective Systems, LLC            Topic: 21a

    A seminal report by MIT estimated that Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) could provide 100 GW of cost competitive base-load capacity by 2050. Successful integration of this renewable power source and the offsetting of fossil fuels (mainly coal) could reduce 401 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and decrease the US total CO2 emissions by 6.1%. The development of this geothermal resources presen ...

  9. A Web-Based Kinetics Modeling Toolbox (KMT) for Biomass Thermal Conversion Processes

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    The development of a web-based software toolbox is proposed to enable predictions of product yields and product composition in thermal biomass- conversion processes. Biomass pyrolysis is the main focus because of its commercial importance, and because it is the first step in all thermal-conversion processes (gasification, combustion, etc.). Several kinetic models will be incorporated in the softwa ...

  10. Fabrication of Cylindrical Copper Waveguides with Sub-Millimeter Internal Rectangular Corrugations

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: 08a

    There is great interest in having sources of short, intense pulses of Terahertz (THz) radiation to gain a better understanding, and ultimately to control, matter at the electronic, atomic, and molecular levels. This type of radiation source will be pertinent in fields as diverse as chemical and biological imaging, medical diagnostics and medical treatment, material science, telecommunications, sem ...
