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. Welding High Performance Bridge Steel with a Pulsed Energy Source

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    This proposal is in response to announcement DTRT57-13-R-SBIR2 in the area 13.2-FH1, Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel. It is proposed to use Homopolar Generator (HPG) Welding to join the high performance bridge steel in the 3” by 30” cross sections mentioned in the announcement in under 1 second. All of the energy required to perform the weld is stored in the ...

  3. Enhancing drought tolerance in maize using strigolactones

    SBC: ASILOMAR BIO, INC.            Topic: 82

    Drought is a major constraint on crop productivity and a significant risk for American farmers. The challenges associated with drought are likely to increase due to climate change, which will increase temperatures and alter precipitation patterns. Adapting the nation & #39;s agricultural system to water-limited conditions is a major priority to ensure food security and sustainable farm economi ...

  4. Food Safety Monitoring through Odor Analysis

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 85

    In studies conducted for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it was estimated that approximately 48 million new cases of food-related illness, resulting in 3,000 deaths and 128,000 hospitalizations, occur in the United States annually. These estimates, although lower than previous estimates, confirm that foodborne illness continues to be a problem. Together with the mortality and quali ...

  5. ALARM: Next-Generation Food-Borne Pathogen Detection

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 85

    A leading public health problem affecting individuals world-wide is food poisoning. Pathogen contamination of post-harvest food sources is a major health issue. There is a wealth of information and data that indicate that the occurrence of infectious gastrointestinal diseases is globally on the rise; and that food-borne pathogens can readily adapt to environmental changes, contributing significant ...

  6. Advanced Carbon Electrode Materials for Superior Ultracapacitors

    SBC: nCarbon, Inc.            Topic: 13d

    Car and fleet vehicle manufacturers must increase the average fuel efficiency of their vehicles. A viable, low cost solution is Micro-Hybrid technology. Micro-Hybrids are capable of shutting down their engine when coasting and stopped, and then rapidly restarting to move the vehicle forward, offering the highest marginal ROI for improving fuel efficiency of any hybridization design. Micro-Hybrid v ...

  7. High Resolution Diffraction Imaging of Natural Fracture Zones in Unconventional Shale Reservoirs for Well Placement Optimization

    SBC: Z-Terra Inc.            Topic: 15c

    In 2000, shale gas represented just 1 percent of American natural gas supplies. Today, it is 30 percent and the percentage keeps increasing. The technology to drill and fracture the shale formations is now exported to the rest of the world, increasing the national oil and gas reserves in many other countries. The thickness of the shale formations is often just a few hundred feet, so new high-r ...

  8. Self-Contained Blood Irradiator using Flat Panel X-ray Source

    SBC: STELLARRAY INCORPORATED            Topic: 22a

    The National Academy of Sciences issued a report in February 2008 detailing isotope replacement priorities in the interests of national security [National Research Council, 2008] . 137Cs used in self-contained irradiators was identified as the single most dangerous isotope in the inventory, owing to its long half life (30+ years) and production as cesium chloride salt, which means it ...

  9. Boron-coated straw neutron detector for well-logging

    SBC: PROPORTIONAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 22c

    Neutron detectors for well logging require stable operation in an extreme environment of high temperatures, (175C up to 260C), high mechanical vibration, and shock. Helium-3 tubes have been the preferred solution, as they satisfy these requirements to 175C, can be configured in small packages, are easy to fabricate, have low power requirements, and offer high detection efficiency. The supply of 3H ...

  10. Photocopia-A Unibody MoNo-material Compact and Scalable Photomultiplier

    SBC: Saxet Surface Science            Topic: 39a

    Future experiments in nuclear (and particle) physics will require advances in detector technology in order to carry out planned measurements of QCD, electroweak interactions, studies of fundamental symmetries, understanding the spin properties of nucleons, and many other physics topics. Among the desired advancements is the development of robust, compact photomultiplier tube (PMT) capable of worki ...
