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. Enzymatic degradation of quorum-sensing signals to decrease bacterial phytopathogenicity

    SBC: Phyllotech, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Quorum sensing (QS) allows bacterial populations to coordinate gene expression in a cell density dependent manner and plays a significant role in the onset of pathogenesis and biofilm development. In many Gram-negative bacteria, QS is mediated by signaling molecules called N-acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs). We recently identified an AHL acylase from P. syringae which can enzymatically degrade and ...

  2. Development of Scaled Manufacturing for Mycological Soilless Growth Media

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: 82

    Soilless growth mediums widely used throughout the horticultural industry are either synthetic in origin, or require synthetic chemicals and energy-intensive processing. Ecovative's biomaterial aims to displace these non-renewable, energy-intensive, materials using its product consisting of a self-assembling, moldable mass of fungal mycelium. Mycelium act as a biological resin, binding togethe ...

  3. Tutoring With The Lightning Squad: Integrating Technology, Peers, and Home for Reading Success

    SBC: SIRIUS THINKING LTD            Topic: ed15c0026

    Video Demonstration of the Phase I Prototype: Purpose: This project team will develop and test a multimedia platform, The Lightning Squad, designed to guide teachers in providing tutoring sessions to small groups of struggling readers. Grade 3 students who read below grade level are more likely to drop out of high school than peers who read at grade lev ...

  4. A Hybrid HTS/LTS Superconductor Design For High-Field Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 33b

    Proposed designs for a Future Circular Collider (FCC) to collide protons with a center-of-mass energy of 100 TeV call for dipoles with fields up to 20 Tesla (T). This is significantly beyond the present technology and requires using High Temperature Superconductors (HTS). The recent Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5), organized by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), strongly supp ...

  5. Automated Simulation Of Selective Laser Melting Additive Manufacturing For Process Design

    SBC: Simmetrix Inc            Topic: 02a

    Additive Manufacturing (AM), where three-dimensional (3D) objects are created from a digital model by depositing and fusing successive layers of material, provides the ability to produce low-volume, customized products with complex geometries relatively quickly at a moderate cost. However, AM processes sometimes fail to produce acceptable parts, due to either geometric in- accuracy (e.g., shrinkag ...

  6. SpectroCCD X-ray Camera for energy dispersive spectrometers

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 03d

    Worldwide there are a number of synchrotron beamlines dedicated to resonant soft x-ray inelastic scattering. There are also new beamlines currently being designed to take advantage of improved third generation synchrotron radiation sources and this powerful experimental technique for probing electronic structure. These beamlines utilize energy dispersive spectrometers and share a common need for a ...

  7. Open-Source Visualization and Analysis Platform for 3D Reconstructions of Materials by Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Three-dimensional characterization of materials at the nano- and meso-scale has become possible with transmission and scanning transmission electron microscopes. Its importance has extended to a wide class of nanomaterials|such as hydrogen fuel cells, solar cells, industrial catalysts, new battery materials and semiconductor devices, as well as spanning high-tech industry, universities, and natio ...

  8. Bro-Intelligent Load Balancer Towards Terabit-Scale Cyber Security

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: 39d

    According to a 2013 report published by FireEye, on average it took 229 days between the breach of a computer system and the detection of said breach. In order to effectively mitigate these breaches, traditional corporate border security needs to transition to a defense in depth cyber security posture. As networks get faster, such as the DOE ESNet and corporate datacenters such as Target and The H ...

  9. Diamond beam flux, timing and position monitors for synchrotron radiation facilities

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 09a

    The effectiveness of synchrotron radiation science has been hindered by the limited availability of advanced diagnostics. In many cases, the capability to produce photon fluxes has outpaced the ability to detect and measure the resultant photons. Synchrotron applications are becoming more demanding as beamlines are being designed with brighter sources, smaller focal spots, and wider energy ranges ...

  10. Transmission Incipient Detection & Fault Location- TID&FL

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    In order to optimize the operating efficiency of transmission systems utilities must be able to quickly restore service after a failure. Locating faults with current technologies can be a time consuming, skill and labor intensive process. Underground transmission systems are hidden from view and fault location can take sometimes days or weeks. Detecting and locating incipient faults prior to fail ...
