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. Multimodal Alerting Interface with Networked Short-range Transmissions (MAIN-ST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 161FH2

    The connected vehicles program is a multimodal U.S. DOT initiative that uses a dedicated wireless communication technology to enable safer, smarter, and greener surface transportation. While significant efforts are being made to bring motor vehicles and transportation infrastructure onto this connected network, bicycles have been largely overlooked. As a result, a significant need exists to bring ...

  2. VIRTUOSO: Visual Recognition of Pests for Crop Scouting

    SBC: ALLYKE, INC.            Topic: 813

    Agriculture has seen rapid development in both the quantity and quality of food production; however, the presence of pests and disease on crops can hamper the quality of agricultural pro-duce and can have a devastating effect on a farmer's bottom line.To combat the risk of pest infestations and disease, crop producers rely on a process known as crop scouting. Field-based crop scouting entails ...

  3. Pulsed Electric Field Application to Aquaculture: Predator Control and Product Extraction

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    It is not currently possible for microalgae processors to determine if Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) treatment of algae is a commercially-attractive proposition within their application when the literature contains such a wide range of reported PEF treatment conditions, leading to unclear and inconsistent baselines. A more controlled approach to determine the effects of PEF on algae is required, whe ...

  4. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the project team and partners developed Cyberchase, a multimedia story-based series for students to practice and learn math. Researchers will develop and test a prototype of a mobile app-based fractions game to be integrated within the multimedia series. The prototype will adjust to students of different skill levels, and will present fractions in different repre ...

  5. Methane, ethane, and propane sensor for real-time leak detection and diagnostics

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 19

    Proposal Technical Abstract: Methane is an important greenhouse gas with a global warming potential 25-35 times that of carbon dioxide. There are many anthropogenic and natural sources of CH4, but emissions from the oil and gas industry are the largest contributor to the overall US methane budget of 650 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent. Identifying sources of methane emissions from oil and ga ...

  6. Vertical Steering Borehole Drilling Tool Incorporating Formation Water Salinity and Fracture Zone Detection Sensing

    SBC: Aps Technology, Inc.            Topic: 31

    The high-level radioactive nuclear waste resulting from mankind’s usage of nuclear fuels is extremely hazardous to the health and safety of people and living organisms, demanding long-time storage in a remote, yet benign, environment. The disposal of spent nuclear waste in deep crystalline basement rocks has been discussed and promoted in the public domain as a long-term solution to the permanen ...

  7. A High Performance Scintilator for Gamma Spectroscopy

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 03

    The goal of this program is to develop purification, stoichiometry control, and crystal growth techniques to enable production of large volume scintillator detectors with exceptionally superior performance. The Phase I of this program will be focused on identification and optimization of processes and techniques that would enable growth of large diameter crystals. Phase I program will also investi ...

  8. Novel Low-Temperature Plasma Reactor for Industrial Applications

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 23

    Statement of Problem & DOE/Public Interest: UV irradiation is a non-contact disinfection method which uses light at a sufficiently short wavelength to break down and kill infectious and nuisance microorganisms. Typically, large reactor tanks with UV emitting bulbs irradiate effluent at a maximum rate determined by the effectiveness of the UV spectrum of the bulb and the maximum power of the bulb. ...

  9. High Power Solid-State Amplifier for PIP-II

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 25

    Statement of Problem & DOE/Public Interest: Klystrons, magnetrons, and other vacuum tubes have traditionally been used for high power applications, but the increasing transition of low power amplifiers to solid-state has significantly reduced the industrial base. Very high power transistorized RF amplifiers are promising for future DOE accelerators, but their complexity and cost must be reduced an ...

  10. Detection and Monitoring of Mercury Species

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 17

    Statement of the Problem or Situation that is Being Addressed: Improper disposal of mercury has resulted in contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water at numerous DOE sites, including Oak Ridge Reservation and Savannah River site. Given the highly toxic nature of mercury, it is necessary to closely monitor concentrations in the environment to prevent unnecessary public exposure. The dev ...
