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. Integrating Sphere-Based Nephelometer for UAS Applications

    SBC: American Ecotech L.C.            Topic: 17a

    Novel compact and sensitive instruments measuring light scattering from microscopic airborne particles (i.e., aerosols) are needed for deployment on small aerial platforms to characterize aerosol influence on air quality, earth system dynamics, and visibility degradation. The Phase 1 project has developed, modeled, and characterized prototypes of such instruments based on transformative technologi ...

  2. Gamma-Heated In-Core Thermoacoustic Sensor

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: 30a

    We will develop an acoustically-telemetered, frequency-multiplexed, gamma-heated thermoacoustic sensors that can simultaneously monitor local gamma flux and coolant temperature at multiple locations in the core of an operating commercial nuclear reactor. These sensors will require no external power source and will telemeter temperature encoded as the frequency of the sound radiated by the sensor a ...

  3. Developing BEM Applications for the Reinsurance Industry

    SBC: Prisere Llc            Topic: 09c

    Inefficient use of energy wastes capital that could be more productively invested in other segments of the U.S. economy. At the same time, the reinsurance industry is eager to reduce property losses arising from increasingly severe weather. But existing reinsurance loss models do not take into consideration the resiliency benefits of energy efficiency measures. The objective of the Phase I SBIR re ...

  4. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Lightning strikes and near-strikes on wind turbine blades cost wind farm operators millions of dollars every year, representing one of their largest O&M risks and expenses, as well as a primary cause of turbine downtime (resulting in lost power production). These negative effects increase the levelized cost of wind energy. With the incidence of lightning strikes increasing as turbines get larger, ...

  5. Ion Exchange Materials for Lithium Extraction (Topic: 15, Subtopic: e)

    SBC: Lilac Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 15e

    Electric vehicles are creating unprecedented demand for lithium. Most lithium is produced from brine resources. Conventional methods for extracting lithium from brines suffer from low lithium recovery and cannot access the expanded resources needed for mass adoption of electric vehicles. The Department of Energy has supported a great variety of projects relate ...

  6. LOW-COST, HIGH EFFICIENCY INTEGRATION OF SOLID-STATE LIGHTING AND BUILDING CONTROLS USING A PET POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    The primary barrier to widespread adoption of solid-state lighting is its high initial cost relative to other options approximately two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps, and five times more expensive than equivalent downlight fixtures. The performance and cost of solid-state lighting driver circuitry, which comprises 15-20% of the cost of a commercial lamp, operates ...

  7. Integrating Sphere-Based Nephelometer for UAS Applications

    SBC: American Ecotech L.C.            Topic: 17a

    This project will develop a novel, multi-wavelength integrating nephelometer, for use on small aerial platforms; such as UAS, tethered balloons, kites and other space-constrained applications. The main goal is to reduce the size of a typical research grade integrating nephelometer, maintaining its detection limit in the miniaturized device through technology innovation. The proposed nephelometer w ...

  8. Low-Cost, High Efficiency Integration of Solid-State Lighting and Building Controls Using a Packet Energy Transfer (PET) Power Distribution System

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    Solid state lighting has not yet taken off in commercial buildings due to its high relative installed cost. On a normalized basis, solid state lighting replacement lamps are on the order of two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and five times more expensive than an equivalent downlight fixture. An additional barrier relates to the performance and cost of the dr ...

  9. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  10. MARKETING AND ENGINEERING ANALYSIS OF SPVD APPLICATIONS

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATE BOTH CONVENTIONAL AND INNOVATIVE USES FOR THE SELF POWERED VEHICLE DETECTOR (SPVD) AND TO MODIFY THE EXISTING DESIGN, IF REQUIRED, TO MEET THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE NEW APPLICATIONS. THE OVERALL GOAL OF THE PROPOSED SBIR PHASE IEFFORT CAN BE SUBDIVIDED INTO THREE FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVES: RESEARCH INTO THE VARIOUS APPLICATIONS OF SPVD TECHNOLOGY AND ...
