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. Acoustic Propagation Analysis Program for Marine Scientists

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: 819

    The goal of the Phase II project is to develop a prototype of the Marine Acoustic Propagation System (MAPS).  MAPS is a computer system designed in a client-server archi9tecture that provides NOAA marine scientists, who do not have an extensive background in underwater acoustics, with a tool that selects the appropriate acoustic model for estimating underwater propagation loss for anthropogen ...

  2. Development of Separators for Lithium-Ion Cells with High Temperature Melt Integrity

    SBC: MaxPower, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During charge and discharge at high rates and in high abuse situations, a battery can become quite hot, as the heat generated from internal chemical reactions can exceed the battery¿s capability to dissipate the heat. When internal temperatures become excessive, separator breakdown can result, even after separator shutdown, as the internal cell temperature continues to climb. Eventually the sep ...

  3. Development of Automated Software Program for the Analysis of Alzheimer's Disease Beta-Amyloid Scans

    SBC: Molecular Neuroimaging, L.l.c.            Topic: N/A

    Clinical trials are now underway for the commercialization of radiopharmaceuticals that target beta amyloid, a compound that requires quantification for the diagnosis of Alzheimer¿s Disease (AD). This project will develop an automated software processing package that will objectively yield quantitative regional uptake values for evaluating the efficacy of these radiopharmaceuticals for measuring ...

  4. High-Power Microwave Switch Employing Electron Beam Triggering

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of accelerator structures that can sustain acceleration gradients of ~150 MeV/m are required in order to build a future multi-TeV collider. High-power facilities for testing these structures do not generate sufficiently-high peak powers, hence RF pulse compressors are needed to provide power multiplication. However, active RF pulse compressors are limited in peak power due to RF brea ...

  5. Development of Novel Oxy-Syngas Zero-Emission Reheat Combustor

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Zero-emission power generation, via an economical carbon capture and storage (CCS) process, offers a sustainable future for coal-derived fuels. Successful oxy-fuel combustion technology is a candidate for satisfying this objective, provided that the cycle efficiency can be boosted to levels that are equal to or greater than that of other fossil fuel power generating cycles. In order to achieve t ...

  6. Foil Gas Bearing Supported High Temperature Cathode Recycle Blower

    SBC: R&D Dynamics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Large multi-megawatt-size Integrated Gasification Fuel Cell power plants based on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells are being developed and planned for the near future. The efficiency of these plants can be improved by recycling part of the high temperature (800 °C to 850 °C) cathode air or anode gas effluent back to the system. In order to enable this recycling, this project will develop blowers tha ...

  7. A New Multifilament Round Wire with Enhanced Bi2212 Texture for HEP High Field Magnet Applications

    SBC: Supramagnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The study of fundamental physics phenomena at higher energy collisions will require more energy and luminosity. More luminosity means larger apertures and bigger magnets. In turn, higher field magnets will require higher performance Bi2212 conductors at lower cost. This project will develop technology for improving the critical current density and lowering the processing cost of powder-in-tube ...

  8. A Potential New Drug for Depression


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A Potential New Drug for Depression, an active SBIR Phase IIa award. The requested funds will allow additional characterization studies of three newly discovered mixed vasopressin 1a/1b antagonists, studies that were not part of the original application. These experiments will accelerate preclinical development of the novel mixed antagonists by facilitating i ...

  9. Hybrid Nanochannel Arrays for Single Molecule Linear Genome Analysis

    SBC: BIONANOMATRIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hybrid Nanochannel Arrays for Single Molecule Linear Genome Analysis Abstract The objective of this proposal is to develop a fully integrated nanofluidic device for single molecule analysis of long, linearized, native state genomic DNA. The project will result in a simple, disposable chip that will allow direct, fluorescent single molecule analysis of structura ...

  10. Transporter Knockdowns for In Vitro Drug Interaction Monitoring

    SBC: ABSORPTION SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In vitro assays that reliably correlate with observed clinical drug-drug interactions (DDIs) facilitate drug development and safety testing and reduce reliance on animal testing. One important mechanism of DDI is the in teraction of drugs with transport proteins in various tissues, including intestine, kidney, liver, brain and placenta. The human intestinal cel ...
