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. STTR Phase I: Multi-faceted System for Document and Product Security


    This STTR Phase I project will support the development of a powerful new track-and-trace platform in the global fight against counterfeit products in high-risk supply chains. From pharmaceuticals to aviation to defense, many industries now face a growing problem with maintaining visibility to the authentic products in their supply chain, while identifying black market and grey market products that ...

  2. In Situ Stress Corrosion Crack Repair and Prevention for Nuclear Waste Canisters

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems LLC            Topic: 30b

    The U.S. depends on its fleet of nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity. With much uncertainty facing long term, permanent storage facilities such as Yucca Mountain, long duration on-site waste storage is becoming a reality. One major problem facing the existing fleet of nuclear waste storage canisters is stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of austenitic stainless stee ...

  3. In Situ Structural Repair and Protection of LWR Components Using Cold Spray

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems LLC            Topic: 10c

    The U.S. depends on its fleet of light water nuclear facilities for the clean and reliable generation of electricity. With much of the facilities reaching the end of their initial 40-year license, and with electricity demand expected to grow, the U.S. needs methods to extend the lifetime of these facilities for up to 60 years. Stress corrosion crack-susceptible nickel alloys are used in approximat ...

  7. Oral vaccine delivery of recombinant subunit vaccines for animal diseases

    SBC: VST LLC dba Medgene Labs            Topic: H-SB014.1-002

    Wildlife are a reservoir of diseases affecting both humans and domestic animals. These wildlife reservoirs represent a potential threat to public health, serving as a continuous and difficult to eradicate source of infection for zoonotic diseases, but may also represent a significant economic threat to US agriculture. In particular, wild ruminants including white-tail deer may harbor vector-bo ...

  8. Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) Safe & Arm for Rocket Motor Ignition

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems Corporation            Topic: MDA14-022

    Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...

  9. Production of high protein canola meal to replace fish meal in aquaculture diets.

    SBC: DAST            Topic: 8.7

    The opportunities we are pursuing are in the larger and more diverse animal/fish feed markets, where protein cost, amino acid balance, and digestibility are key drivers. Highly concentrated and purified protein ingredients are not necessary in these markets, and are too expensive due to 1) the aforementioned issues with processing costs and low protein yields. Our innovation is a simple, one-step ...
