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. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  2. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

      City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects.  Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required.  This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process a ...

  3. Next Generation Energy Efficient Supplemental Lighting for Plant Production

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture industries in northern climatically challenged regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and CO2 in a hydroponics environment. Key advantages ...

  4. Development of an Integrated Anaerobic Digestion System for Methane Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: QUASAR ENERGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: 88

    The proposed project builds on prior research that has shown the potential for energy recovery from lignocellulosic biomass through an integrated anaerobic digestion (iADs) process. A 2005 USDA report places the current production of corn stover at 75 million dry tons per year and stated that this represents a major untapped source of agricultural biomass. The innovative anaerobic digestion proces ...

  5. Pelleted sericea lespedeza diet for control of internal parasites and pathogens in goats and sheep

    SBC: SIMS BROTHERS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Internal parasites are the greatest health and production challenge for sheep and goats in southeastern states and others during warm, humid conditions (including Northeastern, Midwestern and irrigated pastures in Western US). Haemonchus contortus or barber pole worm thrives in warm, humid climates and is a voracious blood feeder that can cause anemia and death to the animal if left untreated. Dew ...

  6. Inorganic Electrode Coatings for Increased Temperature and Cycle Life Performance

    SBC: ALTAIRNANO, INC.            Topic: 20b

    With the increase in the utilization of intermittent renewables such as wind and solar PV, integration of these resources into the existing grids requires a means of leveling the output. Batteries have been targeted as one possible means of achieving this, requiring increases in cycle and calendar life to ensure greater than 15 years of service. Altairnano has been developing large format batteri ...

  7. High-Efficiency Microalgae Biofuel Harvest and Extraction Using Ionic Liquids

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: 18b

    Producing renewable fuels from algae does not use agricultural lands and could make the US energy-independent while drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, biomass processing steps are currently too energy-intensive and cost-prohibitive.We are exploring new chemistry to obtain an energy- and cost-efficient way to dry algae biomass and extract energetic substrates for conversion int ...

  8. Quantum Mechanic Based Reactive Potentials for Rapid and Reliable Prediction Of Material Properties for Advanced fossil Energy Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 23c

    This Phase I SBIR project will develop Quantum Mechanics (QM)-based reactive interatomic potentials for computer-aided development of novel materials for advanced fossil energy systems such as slagging gasifier and ultrasupercritical steam plant. Currently, the development of novel materials remains slow because it is driven by trial-and-error experimental approach. Atomistic Molecular Dynamic ( ...

  9. A New Quarter-Wave Coaxial Coupler For1.3 GHZ Superconducting Cavity

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 37b

    The current design for the rf couplers for the ILC cavity introduces unacceptable emittance growth in the beam. We have developed two new couplers designed to mitigate the emittance growth problem by preserving the axial symmetry of the cavity fields. Optimization of the design of the coaxial coupler units. Complete analysis of the ILC structure with the new coupler units was performed to confi ...
