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. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurement in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    The topic (8.2.2R) requires the capability for enabling high sensitive/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. The proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of large backgrounds calcium concentration. The sensor approach will use the benefi ...

  2. A Single Aperture Dual-Wavelength Dual-Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and the world economy. From an average of $10B annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry, which is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now casting and forecasting could prevent the ...

  4. Phosphorus removal from ethanol thin stillage to produce a low phosphorus livestock feed and a valuable granular fertilizer.

    SBC: KANSAS ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: 84

    Grain ethanol production byproducts or ?coproducts? are commonly used in modern beef finishing rations. The term distillers grains (DGS) is intended to include these and similar coproducts. The expansion of the ethanol industry has led to the wide spread availability and economic pricing of DGS, resulting in significant amounts of DGS being commonly included in beef finishing rations. The fermenta ...

  5. Novel Air Processor for the Removal of Ammonia Gas From CAFO Air Streams

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 84

    In this proposal, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) outlines the development of a system for remediating ammonia (NH3) produced in large confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The animal agricultural industry is coming under increased scrutiny due to the large volume of pollutants, in particular ammonia, produced in its operations. PSI's proposed remediation system for NH3 utilizes an adsorbe ...

  7. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Wind turbines have reshaped rural America by boosting incomes, creating jobs, and harnessing local energy sources. However, conventional tower-mounted wind turbines have three main problems that limit their potential: (1) only about 12 percent of communities have strong enough ground winds to make projects economical; (2) installations are too expensive, requiring a crane and concrete foundation; ...

  9. Socket Pressure Monitoring System

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84133S1

    The goal of this Phase 1 project is to identify changes in residual limb volume in amputees and to warn the user when these changes may lead to potential problems. One cause of residual limb pain in amputees is improper prosthetic socket fit, causing a range of mild to unbearable pressures. Residual limbs can change shape over long timeframes which can change the interface between the socket and s ...

  10. The Intelligent Brace: A Compliance Monitoring System for Scoliosis

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84133S1

    The goal of this project is to provide real-time monitoring and data logging to help both the patient and clinician determine if and when a scoliosis brace is being worn effectively. Despite widespread use of bracing for treatment of scoliosis, its efficacy remains unproven. Studies have indicated that user compliance is a large factor in the efficacy of scoliosis brace treatment. Two factors comp ...
