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. A universal TET system for implanted life support systems

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposed program is the commercialization of a universal transcutaneous energy transfer (TET) system with a high performance implantable battery. This integrated power system will be adapt able to a host of next generation fully implantable mechanical circulatory support (MCS) systems. To date, fully implantable systems (i.e. the ...

  2. JUST ASK: WEB-BASED SBIRT SUPPORT FOR PCP

    SBC: ACADEMIC EDGE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An estimated 25% of primary care patients may have some form of substance abuse. The goal of this project is to develop web-based educational and performance support tools for primary care providers (PCPs) to engage in substance abuse screening, brief intervention, referral, and treatment (SBIRT). The effort will be grounded in an integrative reasoned action approach to provider performance, incor ...

  3. Novel Catheter for Treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia

    SBC: Thermedical Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ischemic ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a contributing cause to more than half of the 300,000 sudden cardiac deaths that occur annually in the United States. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are the stand ard therapy but they are expensive the total cost of an ICD implant approaches 50,000 and the United States spends more than 2.2B on these im ...

  4. Advanced Hybrid Thermoelectric-Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Conversion for High Efficiency Portable Power

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP4

    The proposal would provide the design and basic product development work to augment the power generation efficiency of fuel cells developed by Acumentrics Corp. by converting waste heat into electricity by highly efficient thermoelectric (TE) power generation. Three paths will be explored in Phase I to add a TE generator to the SOFC. The first will explore the use of a material that is used in co ...

  5. Marine Portable Power Unit

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: N06105

    A conceptual design of a battery charging station with UPS back-up capability was completed under contract M67854-C-6509. The resulting system can charge up to twelve BB-2590 batteries at the maximum charging current (to minimize charging time) and provide 1000 Watts of back-up power (both AC and DC outputs are provided) for at least one hour. Individual batteries can be hot-swapped for field us ...

  6. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Such low ambient temperatures influence the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  7. Terahertz Source and Spectrometer

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF073012

    We propose to develop a fiber-based, high power, narrow linewidth, and tunable THz source to implement a novel THz spectroscopy system by leveraging our proprietary fiber laser technology. This proposed high power fiber-based THz source will be generated by using a nonlinear crystal based on difference-frequency generation (DFG) pumped by high power pulsed fiber lasers in MOPA with high repetition ...

  8. Tunable Single Frequency Fiber Laser for Fiber Optic Sensor Systems

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N08046

    In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, low phase noise, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser by developing an innovative Er/Yb-co-doped polarization maintaining (PM) single mode fiber. Such a fiber laser is needed for advanced fiber optical towed array sonar systems. In Phase I, we will design and fabricate this new fiber, demonstrate fixed wavelength low ...

  9. High Efficiency Fiber Laser for Advanced Accelerator

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 49a

    The Department of Energy has identified a need for a single-polarization, mode-locked, high-power, 2-micron fiber laser for an advanced laser electron accelerator. The 2-micron laser wavelength would allow for both larger accelerator dimensions and the acceleration of more charge, compared to the 0.8 micron Ti:Sapphire laser. Another advantage of the 2-micron wavelength is the possibility of using ...

  10. High-Power 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    SBC: ADVALUE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF071137

    Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the potential possibility of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of new Tm-doped glass fiber for efficient high power 2ƒnmicron fiber laser capable of generating an output power of up to thousands watts. The doping concentration of the proposed glass f ...
