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. Pedestrian Auto Enforcement Program (PAEP)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 122FH3

    The Pedestrian Automated System for Enforcement and Safety is a novel video and radar based system that is able to detect and track vehicles and pedestrians, and to determine when violations of pedestrian right of way have occurred. By using multiple sensor modalities the system provides a robust tracking solution. The use of radar provides long standoff detection and tracking of vehicles with hig ...

  2. Breakdown Resistant Refractory Metal Coatings for Field-Aligned ICRF Antennas

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 16b

    In fusion plasmas, ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) and lower hybrid range of frequency (LHRF) power is anticipated to be a primary auxiliary heating and current drive sources in next step tokamak experiments like ITER. From a technological perspective, several challenges remain including electrical breakdown and material compatibility with a nuclear environment. Copper has been the prima ...

  3. High Strength, Oxidation Resistant Fuel Claddings for Improved Accident Tolerance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 19b

    The recent events at the Fukushima nuclear power plant highlight the need for enhanced accident tolerance. Of particular concern is the overheating of standard zirconium alloy cladding material in a loss of coolant accident (LOCA). One of the leading, high-risk/high-reward candidates for future claddings is a silicon carbide (SiC) composite material. However, the inherent open porosity present in ...

  4. Low-Cost, High Efficiency Integration of Solid-State Lighting and Building Controls Using a Packet Energy Transfer (PET) Power Distribution System

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    Solid state lighting has not yet taken off in commercial buildings due to its high relative installed cost. On a normalized basis, solid state lighting replacement lamps are on the order of two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and five times more expensive than an equivalent downlight fixture. An additional barrier relates to the performance and cost of the dr ...

  5. Bench to pilot scale prototype for electrospinning biorenewable chitin sorbents for uranium from seawater: Process development, cost, and environmental analysis

    SBC: 525 SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 19g

    525 Solutions will manufacture highly economical and biodegradable uranium-from-seawater sorbents from fishing industry waste, and provide them to government-designated mining companies, at the same time leveraging the governmental funds to create a sustainable chitin products business, enabling economic growth and job creation in both the chitin products and fishing industries.

  6. Development of low cost method for fabrication of metal neutron guides

    SBC: Dawn Research Inc            Topic: 06b

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DOEs Oak Ridge National Laboratory and upgrades of ORNLs High- Flux Isotope Reactor and N ...

  7. Endotoxin Neutralization as a Biomonitor for HIV Disease Progression

    SBC: BIODTECH, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Endotoxin neutralization in human plasma is an excellent indicator of chronic immune activation, which is the most accurate predictor of mortality in HIV. Recently we developed an assay using endotoxin neutralization asan indicator of bacterial translocation. This assay is accurate in discriminating control patients from those with inflammatory bowel disease in ...

  8. New High Throughput Anti-Tumor Drug Screening System

    SBC: Vivo Biosciences Inc            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR project is focused to develop, validate and commercialize an advanced high-throughput anti- tumor drug screening platform (HTS) which employs a new 3D HuBioGEM assay technology. Preclinical drug screening is commonly performed using biochemical and cell-based assay systems. In recent years, more relevant 3D spheroid models have been developed using mi ...

  9. Chronically Acting CFTR Inhibitor Discovery for Secretory Diarrhea and ADPKD

    SBC: DISCOVERYBIOMED, INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    Project Summary Abstract DiscoveryBioMed, Inc. (DBM) has launched an innovative and automation-friendly drug discovery program to screen a collection of small molecular compounds on a human epithelial cell platform expressing physiologically relevant levels of the wild-type Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) to discover a new class of therapeutic drugs for secretory disease ...

  10. Calcaftor, a CFTR stabilizer for Cystic Fibrosis treatment

    SBC: Calista Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Calista Therapeutics has invented Calcaftor, a first-in-class peptide drug that can treat all Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients. Calcaftor is validated in the gold standard pre-clinical model of CF using F508 -CFTR lung tissue harvested from CF transplant patients. Results from this model demonstrated a gt25 hour duration of action that enables once daily inhaled n ...
