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. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known.  Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use.&nbs ...

  2. Cost Effective, Power Efficient, Wireless Sensor Network Based Highway Incident Detection & Warning System

    SBC: Central Signal LLC            Topic: 07FH4

    More than 52% of U.S. urban highway congestion is a direct result of highway incidents.  Federal and State transportation authorities are searching for quick, cost-effective and efficient highway incident detection and warning systems.  Several solutions have been proposed but none could satisfy requirements of transportation authorities.  Central Signal's research and development, ...

  3. Diversion From Land Disposal Of Nutrients Recovered From Non-MPP Processing Plant Wastewater To Value-Added Use In Multi-Spec. Feed Rations

    SBC: AGRI PROCESSING SERVICES, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Non-Meat and Poultry Product (Non-MPP) food processing plants manage their effluent to satisfy environmental regulations concerning waste discharge. Currently, many non-MPP plants mechanically screen out large pieces of organic material (biosolids) that are processed for use as livestock feed. However, minute biosolids in liquid suspension collected from the food plant's effluent are generally dis ...

  4. Modular Trellis System for Brambles

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: N/A

    Trellis installation is a major expense for establishing new commercial blackberry or raspberry (bramble) plantings. Research by the USDA and universities clearly demonstrates that by developing novel trellis designs and methods of manipulating bramble canes, costs of labor for cane pruning and training and winter injury can be reduced and hand-and mechanically-harvested efficiency, fruit quality ...

  5. Feasibility of Commercialization of a Pre-Pretreatment Process for Enhanced Biomass Saccharification

    SBC: SuGanit Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In an economy based on renewable resources, plant biomass can provide a sustainable feedstock for future ¿biorefineries,¿ partially replacing conventional petrochemical refineries. Toward this objective, this project addresses the deconstruction of lignocellulosic biomass to generate sugars and lignin, which form the precursors for producing biofuels and value added chemicals. Specifically, the ...

  6. Removal of Ammonia and Water to Enhance Yield of Kinetically-Controlled Beta-Lactam Synthesis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09c

    Membrane reactors have the potential to improve reactivity and productivity of various chemical syntheses including enzymatic water sensitive reactions. To be of value, higher use temperature, improved chemical resistance and better mass transfer systems are desired. Using membrane systems with improved mass transfer, Compact Membrane Systems will evaluate enhancing enzyme reactivity. Working w ...

  7. Aqueous Phase Base-Facilitated-Reforming (BFR) of Renewable Fuels

    SBC: Directed Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The primary industrial method for hydrogen production, Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) of natural gas (NG), has a number of shortcomings: (1) the natural gas feedstock is not renewable; (2) carbon emissions require costly mitigation systems to be compliant with EPA regulations; (3) reformation results in a dilute hydrogen gas stream that require extensive purification to obtain pure hydrogen; and ( ...

  8. Low Draft Temperature Sensor Gen-IV Simulation Test Planning and Hardware Development

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 53a

    No method exists for testing fiber optic sensors to Gen-IV reactor relevant environments, especially the very high temperature reactors (VHTR). Luna is currently funded to develop drift-free fiber optic sensors for measurement of temperature in Gen-IV reactors, especially the next generation nuclear plants (NGNP). These reactors are planned to operate at temperatures above 1000°C and neutron flu ...

  9. Micro-Pulse Amplified Electron Injector

    SBC: FM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The development of high-current, short-duration pulses of electrons has been a challenging problem for many years. High current pulses are widely used in injector systems for electron accelerators, both for industrial linacs as well as for high-energy accelerators for linear colliders. Also, short-duration pulses have been used for microwave generation, in klystrons and related devices, for injec ...

  10. Numerical Software Maintenance, Versioning, Distribution

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: N/A

    With the increased proliferation of software applications, there exists a need to ensure that an orderly and efficient mechanism exists to (1) shorten the time required for computational packages to transition from pre-publication algorithms to packaged products; (2) build, package, and distribute the products; and (3) ensure that users of the computational packages can easily locate and integrate ...
