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. Satellite Ground Station Network for Real-Time Space Weather Data

    SBC: USML L.L.C.            Topic: 843W

    The goal of this Phase II effort is to carry out a series of tasks with the purpose of developing a ground station network that can provide less than 15 minute latency in acquiring data from NOAA space weather assets. These tasks include:  Finalize a set of specifications for ground stations so they can be used to determine the suitability of existing ground stations for the different missions ...

  2. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...

  3. RailMonitor: Real-Time Broken Rail Detection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FR2

    Broken rails are a common cause of mainline derailments and a particular concern given the increasing use of our rail system for passenger traffic and petroleum products. The progressive nature of the defects provides an opportunity for early detection of cracks before they become significant enough to cause a derailment. Unfortunately, current inspection technology does not allow these inspection ...

  4. Improved Thermal and Acoustic Comfort for Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key the ...

  5. Paper/nanotechnology-based bioanalytical system for rapid detection of pesticides in food and water

    SBC: NanoDiagnostic Technology, LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety and water contamination that are caused by the intensive use of pesticides in agriculture remain concerns worldwide. To ensure the safety of food products and reduce health risks, pesticides are routinely monitored in food and water. However, current technologies for the detection of pesticides are generally centralized, complicated, laborious, time-consuming, and costly. There is a ne ...

  6. Testing feasibility and scalability of a new engineered design of an aerated static pile composting system.

    SBC: Compost Plant, L3C, The            Topic: 86

    Food waste is a significant and complex problem for the United States. Americans generate over 250 million (short) tons of trash a year, and organic materials such as paper and paperboard, yard trimmings, and food waste continue to make up a large component of the waste stream. These organic materials collectively account for a significant portion of U.S. methane emissions, as organic waste produc ...

  7. The First Intelligent Wearable Device to Enhance Student Attention Through Personalized Self-Monitoring and Reinforcement

    SBC: FokusLabs Behavioral Solutions, Inc.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of a hardware and web-based social and behavioral intervention to improve self-regulation (SR) of students in grades 3 to 5. The prototype will include a wearable wristband that gently vibrates from time to time during the school day to prompt students to indicate their level of SR (e.g. level of focus, attention, self-c ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Novel Low Cost Two-dimensional Atomically Precise Covalent Organic Membranes

    SBC: NCO Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels has been identified as one of the most important and difficult problems facing our society. The post combustion CO2 capture from flue gas is particularly challenging due to the relatively low pressure (1 atm) and high temperature (~70 ºC) of flue gas, and its small CO2 concentration (

  10. 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 ...
