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. AUTOMOMOUS REPORTING AND TRACKING OF PESTICIDE INCIDENTS IN HONEY BEE COLONIES

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 813

    This project is aimed at helping plant production and protection by providing a means of rapid, autonomous reporting of pesticide incidents impacting honey bee colonies. We propose research leading to the design of an electronic device to monitor bee colonies for exposure to pesticides, specifically neonicotinoids in Phase I, and to remotely notify appropriate parties (e.g., beekeeper, grower, res ...

  2. Direct Conversion of Farm Manure to Biodiesel and ethanol Utilizing a Novel Extremophilic Fungus

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: 88

    Agriculture in the United States produces significant quantities of waste manure that can be converted to biofuels. Current technologies to covert manure into fuels are typically limited by poor conversion efficiencies, the requirement for significant and costly inputs and controls to sustain the conversion process, and the low cost of the produced fuel (methane). Consequently, implementation and ...

  3. Commercializing the Effective K-3 Assessment to Instruction (A2i) Intervention to Reduce Cost and to Scale Access to the Benefit of More Students

    SBC: LEARNING OVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Students who fail to achieve proficient levels of literacy are at increased risk for grade retention, referral to special education, and dropping out of high school. The kindergarten through 3rd grade years are particularly important for students to gain a strong foundation in reading as those who continue to struggle with reading are significantly less likely to achieve reading proficien ...

  5. Surface metrology for x-ray mirrors using deflectometry

    SBC: ARIZONA OPTICAL SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 04c

    The performance and productivity of DOE synchrotron systems is hindered due to focusing limitations from imperfections in the mirror surfaces. The ability to manufacture higher quality mirrors is directly limited by the accuracy and efficiency of the systems used to measure them. Currently available measurement methods do not provide the manufacturing feedback or quality control to allow efficien ...

  6. High-Performance Proton Exchange Membranes for Electrolysis Cells

    SBC: AMSEN TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 13a

    Improvements in performance of the components are needed for polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, which is one of the key technologies for DOEs hydrogen production plan. In particular, high- performance ion-exchange membranes are needed that can withstand significantly higher mechanical loads due to high-pressure operation, while having significantly reduce hydrogen permeability and i ...

  7. Novel manned/unmanned aircraft conversion for Arctic research

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 17g

    There is a clear requirement for gathering greater quantity and quality of atmospheric data in the Arctic regions. The harsh nature of the environment combined with remote location creates the need for technological solutions. Current efforts have successfully used small unmanned aerial systems (UAS); however, a large cost in both time and money is incurred when miniaturizing sensors to fit with ...

  8. Lidar-based high resolution 3D imager and remote gas sensor: a new paradigm for terrestrial environmental monitoring

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 18e

    Predictive modeling and understanding of the response and resilience of the terrestrial environment to both climate change and human intervention is critical for sustainable management of natural resources. However, measurement and modeling of terrestrial environments is challenging due to the complexity and multitude of interactions occurring among plants, microbes, minerals, migrating fluids, a ...

  9. Development of Large-Aperture Periodically Poled Magnesium Oxide-doped Lithium Niobate

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: 32g

    Optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) with periodically-poled nonlinear crystals is a key technology in the development of accelerator laser systems because such systems enable broadband amplification of high-energy laser pulses over a wide range of different pulse wavelengths. To avoid optical damage and the occurrence of unwanted nonlinear optical processes in the nonlinear crys ...

  10. 100 W Mode-locked Green Laser for GaAs Photoemission Guns

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 38e

    To address the DOE need for a high-power laser source used for synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, AdValue Photonics proposes to develop a radio-frequency (RF) synchronized 100W green fiber laser source with a repetition rate near 1GHz. Although GHz-rate mode-locked solid-state/fiber lasers in the near infrared have been previously demonstrated, which could be used as ...
