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. Monitoring of Arcing Condition in GMAW and Its Variants

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N08178

    This SBIR Phase I project is to prove the feasibility of an innovative weld monitoring technology. This innovative technology is characterized by (1) an innovative non-transferred arc sensor which responds to both surface conductivity and sensor-to-joint distance and can be used to monitor the joint geometry and possible surface contamination such as paint, oil, sand, etc. and (2) an innovative me ...

  7. A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N07211

    Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is the most widely used welding process. It is also the major process used in shipbuilding. In traditional GMAW and all its modifications, the current which melts the wire is the same as the current which heats the base metal. The base metal heat input is thus proportional to the heat which melts the wire. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity as measured by ...

  8. Sensor Torch Based Adaptive Intelligent Control for Circumferential Welding of Pipes

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N05154

    Orbital pipe welding systems are not true emulation of skilled welders who adjust welding parameters based on observation on the weld pool. This SBIR Phase II project aims at the development of commercial prototype systems which can adaptively adjust welding parameters based on an observation on the weld pool surface like a skilled welder but does not require the torch to be moved smoothly/evenly. ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Ultra-Dense Three-Dimensional Electronics for Space

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: AF073099

    R3Logic, Inc., in collaboration with Tezzaron Semiconductor will develop a rad-hard multi-core embedded processor / memory system that will be fabricated in a multi-layer 3-D integrated circuit. Phase I will focus on the system design. We will complete the RTL to GDSII synthesis of the processor and system components. The stack will incorporate Tezzaron’s patented 3-D Octopus memory, which has b ...
