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. Microwave system for small-scale treatment of rocket propellant laboratory derived waste

    SBC: CHA CORP.            Topic: AF083263

    A great opportunity exists to develop a clean, efficient, and commercially viable process for destroying environmentally hazardous waste propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics (PEP).  In this Phase I feasibility effort, the CHA Corporation (CHA) proposes to develop a small-scale microwave system capable of destroying experimental, laboratory-derived rocket propellant waste to non-detectable le ...

  2. Rapid, Low-Cost System for Detection of Bacterial Contamination of Blood Pla--OLD

    SBC: SOFTRAY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR Phase I project will prove the concept for a low-cost, rapid system for detecting bacterial contamination in platelet concentrates, in minutes and not days, with cost/performance equal to accepted testing methodologies. Though the US has one of the safest blood supplies in the world, significant danger exists from the transfusion of blood products con ...

  3. Sensor for Continuous Detection and Reporting of Total Residual Oxidant in Hypochlorite-Enhanced Water Systems

    SBC: PRONGHORN TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N092152

    The U.S. Navy has significantly improved its operational capabilities in littoral and near-shore seawaters, which has resulted in the need to achieve much better pre-treatment of the seawater withdrawn from the often turbid and debris-filled shallow waters for the onboard desalination systems. Low-maintenance microfiltration is now used for pre-treatment, and it relies upon periodic electrolytic h ...

  4. Failure Initiation Prediction for Reliability-Based Design of Hybrid Composite Materials

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08T025

    The opportunity identified here is to expand the capabilities of Multicontinuum Technology (MCT) for prediction of failure initiation in complex (hybrid) composites. A successful Phase 1 project will demonstrate good correlation of MCT variables with initial failure in composites with complex multiscale reinforcement architectures. A Phase 2 project would refine the predictive capabilities, embo ...

  5. Rural wireless network tower site location and optimization using web-based constrained optimization techniques


    Increased telecommuting, innovations and inventions coming from small, often remotely located businesses and individuals, modern agricultural technologies, and the advanced data communication demands of emergency responders have accelerated the need for reliable Internet service in rural America. This project proposes to develop a viable, flexible, and affordable means to extend reliable internet ...

  6. Lightweight Roadside Blast Protection

    SBC: Kennon Products, Inc.            Topic: N09T032

    One of the greatest threats to American armed forces serving in Iraq and Afghanistan is the damage caused by mines, roadside bombs, and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The wide variety of device types, and increasing sophistication of these weapons, presents a growing challenge to protecting U.S. warfighters. Currently, personnel vehicles are protected with thick, heavy armor that severely ...

  7. Advanced Composite Boats

    SBC: Kennon Products, Inc.            Topic: N091049

    This proposal seeks to develop, refine, and combine, several promising composites construction techniques in order to produce lighter, stronger, more agile boats, ultimately at reduced acquisition costs. These techniques rely on sophisticated uses of fibers and fiber layups, advanced methods of resin infusion, and novel combinations of fabrication methods. The boats proposed will be “unibody-” ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Water and Food Analysis by Non-Uniform Electroosmotic flow

    SBC: Labrador Research LLC            Topic: CT

    This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will result in a prototype portable instrument for water quality analysis. The Phase I SBIR project was designed to show the feasibility of a new technique for separating uncharged polymers; this objective was met with remarkable quantitative a ...

  9. On-site Effluent Treatment of Wastewater from Wool Processing Facilities

    SBC: Mountain Meadow Wool Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During the past ten years there as been a significant decline in the amount of wool processed within the United States. From 1994 to 2003, U.S. wool mill consumption decreased by 72% and raw wool exports increased by 289.2%. The American wool industry is facing major economic changes, which include a greater dependency upon foreign markets. Increased energy and transportation costs are significant ...

  10. High-order modeling of applied multi-physics phenomena

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: AF08T023

    A new physics-based simulation capability will be developed based on high-order discretizations in both space and time for application to practical engineering problems involving complex physical phenomena and complicated geometries. The goal is to develop a tool which can accurately handle multiphysics simulations, both in analysis mode, and for design optimization purposes. The approach will r ...
