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. Development of Visible Diode Lasers by Using I-III-VI2 Semiconductor

    SBC: Applied Optronics            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase 1 approach utilizes a material system, the I-III-VI2 compounds, for which some early success in the fabrication of laser devices and LEDs has been achieved in Japan. The benefits to this material include: ease in forming p-n junction, greater thermal conductivity, higher bond strength in the crystal, less thermal stresses and ease in making metal contacts. The proposed effort in ...

  2. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  3. Improved and Tuanble Infrared Rugate Filters

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Rugate Technologies, Incorporated, proposes to develop improved narrow notch and tunable Rugate filters for the infrared. Four problems are addressed in this study: (1) identification of Rugate material pairs for use in the far infrared (out to 30 microns); (2) development of polarization and non-polarization sensitive narrow notch filters, as well as control of sensitivity to incidence angle; (3) ...

  4. Next Generation Electrode Technology for Optimized Performance &

    SBC: SAGE ELECTROCHROMICS,INC.            Topic: N/A

    SAGE Electrochromics, Inc. proposes to evaluate the feasibility of replacing the indium doped tin oxide (ITO) transparent conductor TC with a thin-film Ag based stack having greatly reduced costs, enhanced performance and improved durability for electrochromic (EC) windows. This new system draws upon low-emissivity technology developed in the architectural glass coating industry to maximize photop ...

  5. Brood Shrimp Nutrition: Cold-processed, Stabilized, Complete Feeds for Maturation

    SBC: Zeigeler Bros., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Broodshrimp are given natural (wild-capture) foods for maintenance and maturation. This practice causes problems with production schedules and diseases, limits management options, and raises production costs. Conventional feed processing can degrade high quality ingredients-essential nutrients and other natural biochemicals- such that they become ineffective for broodshrimp reproduction. The pu ...

  7. Instrumented Anchor Pin for Heavy Truck Brake

    SBC: Stratcom International Llc            Topic: N/A

    The bonded resistance strain gage has made possible a varety of force sensing transducers, commonly known as "load cells." Widely used types of load cells include the column, the bending beam, the ring, the circular plat and the shear web. To instrument the anchor pins used in heavy truck air braking systems, STRAINSERT will utilize proven research and evaluation techniques implemented during th ...

  8. Innovative Energy Absorbing Composite Utility Poles

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Utility poles present a serious roadside hazard due to the large number of poles located in close proximity to the roadways and the unforgiving nature of existing pole designs. Breakaway wooden utility poles have been developed over the past twenty years in an effort to improve utility pole safety, but these designs have not gained widespread acceptance. In order to realize safer utility poles w ...

  10. Telemedicine as a Tool for Rural Assistive Technology Service Delivery

    SBC: ARTSCO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The current trend of cost containment in health care has prompted a search for innovative methods of providing the best quality care at the lowest possible cost. One method that has received much attention is the use of telemedicine to conduct evaluations at rural locations. The use of a telemedicine link to connect a specialist in a large city to a local practitioner in a rural location has the ...
