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. LCAI: Exploring the potential of an independently usable, internet-based multimedia software system for self-Paced assessment, instruction and practice in listening comprehension skills for non readers


    Data from the National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) indicates that 4-6% of adults in the US have insufficient reading skills to attempt participation in NAAL s literacy assessment in 1992 (Literacy in the Labor Force, p. 310-320). While there are approximately 8 million individuals with intellectual disabilities (e.g., mental retardation) in the US, there is no data specific to the subset o ...

  5. Emulsified Bilgewater Treatment

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N03206

    The goal of this multiphase SBIR project is to develop and commercialize a compact and robust system for removing oil from bilgewater using electrocoagulation (EC). Under Phase I, ADA Technologies tested the ability of EC to treat oily, emulsified bilgewater. Lab-scale tests verified that the EC process consistently breaks oily emulsions, producing a floc that can be separated from the water phase ...

  6. Modular Micro-Weather Station for Use in Open Ocean and Coastal Marine Environments

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    NOAA collects meteorological measurements in open ocean and coastal marine environments from research vessels, data buoys and commercial ships for use in numerical weather prediction, global climate change research, and severe storm identification. The current system cost for robust marine automated meteorological stations is too high to allow ubiquitous use on all the available platforms. Throu ...

  7. High Performance Electrolytes for Electrochemical Capacitors

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    79591 High performance, long-cycle-life energy storage devices are critical in advanced transportation technologies, e.g., electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Electrochemical capacitors (aka, supercapacitors or ultracapacitors) are being developed as power assists for HEVs. However, a major obstacle in this application limited performance and short lifetimes, determined by ...

  8. Reactive Scrubbing for Mercury Removal and Stabilization

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The release of mercury into the environment via combustion processes has become an issue of concern for the US and the entire world. Major sources either are regulated or are under review to develop regulations to reduce emissions. ADA Technologies has successfully demonstrated the performance of a novel reactive scrubbing technology for the removal of vapor-phase mercury from incinerator exhaus ...

  9. Fine Water Mist Fire Suppression for Oxidizer Fires

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T004

    Fine water mist has been shown to be an effective fire suppression option in a number of applications, including oxidizer fires, such as could result from an incident with hydrogen peroxide. ADA Technologies, Inc. and the Colorado School of Mines collaborated in Phase I to design , build and demonstrate the ability of a novel fine water mist system to extinguish target fires enhanced with the addi ...

  10. Scalable Wireless Geo-Telemetry Capability for Miniature Smart Sensors

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A04153

    Lack of accurate geo-positioning (GPS) information integrated within the miniature footprint of a wireless sensor handicaps rapid ad-hoc deployments. Self-mapping data analysis tools, as a result, do not dynamically display measurements real-time. In a battlefield or situation requiring rapid deployment and situational awareness, this is unacceptable. ADA Technologies proposes to address this nee ...
