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. Conversion of Wet Biomass to Hydrogen by Unmixed Reforming

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Wet biomass is a potentially valuable energy resource but it cannot be shipped economically. If wet biomass could be converted to hydrogen, the hydrogen could be used in fuel cells to provide electricity and space heating to farms and other rural facilities. However, the only presently available technology for this conversion, steam reforming, is not economical for small installations. This pro ...

  9. Periodic Silicon Carbide Limiter

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Two microwave limiters will be built from silicon carbide (SiC) field effect transistors (FETs). The first will operate between 1 and 5 GHz with insertion loss below 0.8 dB. This limiter will protect down stream low-noise amplifiers from exposure to 200 Wcontinuous wave (CW) radiation. The second limiter will operate between 4 and 20 GHz with less than 0.8 dB of insertion loss across the band. It ...
