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. Stress and Geometry Imaging from Outside the Pipeline

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    There is a well defined, yet unfulfilled need for a convenient (non-contact, light weight) and rapid imaging tool for multi-directional, thru-wall stresses (both applied and residual) from the outside of a pipeline. Quantitative stress imaging is needed at mechanical damage and corrosion sites, as well as at other critical locations (dents, bends, etc.). JENTEK is uniquely positioned to deliver ...

  2. Silver Ion Formulations for the Control of Bacterial Plant Pathogens and to Reduce Bactericide Resistance and Health Risks

    SBC: AGION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 82

    While bacteria cause fewer plant diseases than fungi and viruses, they do cause serious economic damages to both US and worldwide agriculture. Citrus canker caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis has resulted in the destruction of over 20 million trees in Florida, while fire blight caused by Erwinia amylovora costs exceed $100 million per year in the United States alone, and recent epidemics have cost o ...

  3. eGen Low Flow Hydrokinetic Renewable Energy Harvester

    SBC: EGEN, LLC            Topic: 86

    Rural communities throughout the United States suffer from a severe lack of job opportunities, poor education, and poor healthcare. The population of many of these communities is shrinking at the same time and compounding problems. Simultaneously there is an increased concern regarding climate change and the nation's reliance on foreign energy supplies. The renewable energy firm, eGen LLC, ha ...

  4. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine Shroud for Production of Low Cost Renewable Energy

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Hundreds of existing wind power projects have transformed communities by creating jobs, improving economic development, and reducing environmental pollution. However, 85 percent of rural communities cannot utilize wind power today due to community concerns or poor wind resources at ground level that make projects uneconomical. Altaeros Energies is developing an airborne wind turbine that adapts pr ...

  5. Use of Hydroponic and LED Technology to Grow High Nutrient Lettuce, Spinach and Arugula in a Small, Urban, High Density, Indoor Farm

    SBC: METROCROPS, LLC            Topic: 812

    In the industrial northeast there is an under-fulfilled, year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers? markets since 1995. This project will use innovative hydroponic and LED technologies to study and verify if high nutrient, high quality greens can be grown cost effectively in small, urban, high density, indoo ...

  8. Biomass to Olefins by Catalytic Fast Pyrolysis

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 02d

    Aerodyne Research Inc. (ARI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) plan to develop an efficient catalytic system to convert biomass into olefins for the production of hydrocarbons in the gasoline, diesel, and/or jet fuel range by way of catalytic fast pyrolysis. Conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks from resources as varied as corn stover, grasses, wood, and sugar cane bagasse is ...

  9. Ultra-High Strength Nanostructured Magnesium Alloy-Composite

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: 04e

    Current efforts of DOE to create future lightweight systems in order to attain significant energy saving, cost reduction and improved efficiency requires development of advanced nanostructured lightweight composite materials with improved ductility and high tensile strength. Magnesium (Mg) with a density of approximately two-thirds of aluminum is the lightest structural material. Despite this adva ...

  10. Spiral Welded Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Large-scale wind turbine designs are significantly constrained by transportation limits. As utility scale wind turbines have developed, they have steadily increased in size and have seen a steady decrease in cost of energy. However, further increases in on-shore turbine size beyond 3MW are prohibited by hard limits in the size of components that can be economically transported to the wind farm sit ...
