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. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  2. The Use of Ion-Accumulating Halophytes for the Phytoremediation of Saline and Selenium Impacted Soil and Water in Cold-Arid Climates

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: 84

    The Bureau of Land Management and other agencies have called the rapid expansion of energy exploration on the Rocky Mountain Front, the single largest environmental challenge facing the western U.S. The Powder River Basin (PRB) of Wyoming and Montana is an area of major development for coal bed methane gas (CBM) exploration. CBM resides in underground coal seams, trapped by large aquifers of water ...

  3. Feasibility Test of Seedster Technology to Improve Quantity and Quality of Carrot and Yarrow Seed

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: 813

    The production of hybrid carrot seed is difficult because of the indeterminacy of ripening and the tendency to shatter mature seeds. The umbel (flat-top cluster) inflorescences (seedheads) of carrots mature sequentially over a 3-4 week period. The primary (king) umbel matures first, followed by the secondary and tertiary umbels. The standard harvest method is to swath when the primary and many of ...

  4. Seedster Technology for More Seed Recovery, Less Impurities and Faster Ground Speed Harvesting Camelina for Biodiesel Feedstock

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: 88

    Camelina seed production is expanding throughout the semi-arid portion of the wheat belt and is proposed for intercropping between rows in vineyards and nut orchards. These markets and the market need for small maneuverable harvesters for research plots and breeder blocks have created a need for an inexpensive, but efficient, camelina harvester. The Seedster has the potential for meeting the deman ...

  5. New Controlled Release Fertilizer Systems Derived from Biomass

    SBC: RIVERTOP RENEWABLES, INC.            Topic: 813

    Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of conventionally applied fertilizer goes unutilized by plants and becomes a contaminant of surface and ground (drinking) water. Fertilizer run-off in surface water leads to oxygen depletion of streams, lakes, and other bodies of water. Without oxygen, the water becomes uninhabitable for fish and other aquatic organisms. In addition to the negative environm ...

  6. Scaffolding for Math Games

    SBC: Virtual Learning Technologies (Sokikom)            Topic: N/A

    In 2009, Virtual Learning Technologies received an award to develop Frachine, a web-based single player fraction learning game for elementary school students. This project will develop an intelligent tutoring system that will integrate with the existing game to provide the individualized instructional support required to further improve student math outcomes.  Phase I will develop a prototype ...

  7. Low-Cost, High-Performance Hybrid Membranes for Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: AMSEN TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 20a

    The ion exchange membrane is the key component in redox flow batteries (RFBs) as it critically determines the RFB performance and its economic viability. The membrane should possess the following properties to ensure high energy efficiency and long cycle life of RFBs: high proton conductivity, low permeability of active redox species, and high chemical stability. In addition, low cost and high d ...

  9. A Low Cost Continuous Process to Produce Magnet Alloys

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 06b

    The current processes to produce Nd-Fe-B alloy powders for producing high magnetic strength permanent magnets for application in electric traction motors for use in electric vehicles requires a significant number of steps resulting in high cost. To meet the cost goals for these motors to expand the availability of electric vehicles, substantial reductions in cost to produce the Nd-Fe-B alloy powd ...

  10. An Advanced Vibrothermography Approach for Wind Turbine Applications

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 20b

    The reliability of a wind turbine system is greatly impacted by hidden defects. An improved method of inspection is sought for manufactured composite materials. Also, field inspection methods to assure quality during and after installation are required. The ultimate goal of this project is to provide a reliable, portable, instrumentation deployment system that can be utilized during wind turbin ...
