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. Spirit Lake Leadership Training Project: Software to Bridge the Cultural & Digital Divide

    SBC: SPIRIT LAKE CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The technical problem to be addressed is how to apply instructional technology to develop both computer skills and vocational skills for the significant proportion of the reservation workforce that is chronically unemployed. A successful Phase I will demonstrate the feasibility of a training application aimed at that 41% who have given up looking for work, as well as those currently unemployed, ra ...

  2. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...

  3. Wireless EMG Preamp and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Develops a small waterproof Warless EMG Preamp sensor for myoelectric arm prostheses that transmits a digital signal via a wireless link eliminating many of the wires and connectors associated with arm prostheses and allowing connection to modern rollon gel type liners

  4. High Volume Utilization of Fly Ash Containing Mercury-Impregnated Activated Carbon

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 11

    In March of 2005, the EPA published final regulations to control mercury emissions from coal-fired electric utilities. The most mature retrofit technology available for mercury collection is the injection of a sorbent such as powdered activated carbon. Unfortunately, carbon injection technology is accompanied by high concentrations of mercury in the fly ash, (an important by-product that is used ...

  5. Proton Conducting Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 18

    The use of a proton-conducting electrolyte in a solid oxide fuel cell offers the opportunity for very high efficiency operation compared to an oxygen-ion-conducting electrolyte. However, the poor stability of the proton-conducting material, within a typcial fuel gas composition, has hampered the development of this technology. This project will develop a compositional and surface modification te ...

  6. Novel Oxide Ceramic Matrix Composites for Gas Turbine Applications

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 28

    The use of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) as hot-section components in gas turbines and engines could significantly increase the operating temperature, resulting in enhanced energy efficiency and reduced emission of harmful gases. CMCs offer high temperature capability compared to superalloys and improved reliability compared to monolithic ceramics. However, current non-oxide CMCs, such as SiC ...

  7. Pilot Plant Design- Integrated Coal Gasification/Shale Oil Recovery

    SBC: Combustion Resources            Topic: 16

    U.S. and world supplies of petroleum are limited, causing substantial increases and fluctuations in the cost of liquid transportation fuels. The U.S. has vast untapped oil shale reserves (an estimated recoverable 1.15 trillion bbl) in UT, CO, and WY, which could help alleviate the problem if the oil from shale could be economically recovered in an environmentally acceptable way. This project wil ...

  8. A High Temperature (400 to 650oC) Secondary Storage Battery Based on Liquid Sodium and Potassium Anodes

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 15

    This project will develop technolgy for integrating a high-temperature (400 to 700ºC), high-efficiency (greater than 90%) secondary battery with a 3 to 10 kW solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. The battery will be based on an alkali-metal-ion-conducting, highly refractory, beta alumina solid electrolyte (BASE) and a non corrosive metal salt. The battery is expected not only to meet or exceed w ...

  9. A Thin Film, Anode-Supported Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Based on High Temperature Proton Conducting Membrane for Operation at 400 to 700 C

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 18

    Proton-conducting solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) offer advantages over SOFCs based on oxygen ion conductors. Proton-conducting SOFCs are comprised of thin electrolyte films, supported on anodes without the use of noble metals, and are capable of operating on hydrogen between 400 and 700oC. Water vapor (reaction product) is formed at the cathode, thus avoiding the fuel dilution that is typical of ...

  10. Nano Graphene Plate-Reinforced Polymer Composites

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 20

    This project will develop a new class of nanocomposites containing isolated, individual, nano-scaled graphene plates (NGPs). Like carbon nano-tubes, NGP materials exhibit attractive properties like carbon nano-tubes, but can be readily mass-produced and are expected to become available at much lower costs and in larger quantities. When incorporated as a nano filler in a matrix, isolated NGPs are ...
