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. SBIR Phase I: Universal Power Converter for AC-DC, DC-DC, DC-AC and AC-AC Applications


    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is that it will serve as a one-stop power conversion solution across the power conversion industries. The proposed Power Converter can convert power directly from AC-DC, DC-DC, DC-AC and AC-AC in a single stage without an interim AC or DC link. The said power converter can take fixed frequency, variable frequency or DC voltage as input and ca ...

  7. Recycling Nutrients from Dairy Effluent into NOP-Compliant Agricultural Inputs

    SBC: Midwestern Bioag, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The consumer demand for organic food is growing faster than the supply. This is particularly true for large-scale row crops that go into staple foods and into animal feeds. As a result, about 80% of the primary organic grain supply is imported. Less-pronounced, but similar imbalances exist for specialty crops. Midwestern BioAg (MBA) has been supporting conventional and organic farmers for 35 years ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Employing a New Class of Chemosensors for Continuous, Real-Time Measurement of Heavy Metals in Wastewater

    SBC: AquaMetals, LLC.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project uses a new class of chemosensor films to continuously measure the concentration of heavy metals in a flowing stream of industrial wastewater. This will make it possible to know the concentration of several heavy metals at any given time so that treatment chemicals used to remove those metals can be metered precisely. Current treatment ...
