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. Phased Array Technique for Low Signal-To-Noise Ratio Wind Tunnels

    SBC: OPTINAV INC            Topic: A302

    Closed wind tunnel beamforming for aeroacoustics has become more and more prevalent in recent years. Still, there are major drawbacks as current microphone arrays are rather larger and hard to install and conventional beamforming and deconvolution techniques do not work well in low signal-to-noise environments. Outlined in the proposal is a phased airfoil imaging microphone array located inside th ...

  2. Development of Equipment Washers for Invasive Plant Protection

    SBC: Kennedy, Sheilah A            Topic: 081FH3

    SK realistic estimated timeline of 18 months maximum, hopefully sooner, will allow for design, engineer and testing modifications to be addressed. SK learned from Phase II that even the simple modifications can result in hours of engineering and design work. The successful completion of the DOTWASH system was designed and developed. The overall components were tested with good operating capabiliti ...

  3. Model Based Control for Dryer Energy Conservation

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Producers of solid and liquid biofuels need to reduce both capital and operating costs to achieve unsubsidized cost parity with fossil fuels. Many biomass feedstocks destined for conversion platforms must be dried, however, the capital cost for dryers is high due to long residence times and the operating cost is high due to system inefficiencies. Consistent and reliable operation of biomass dryers ...

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: 81

    Combustion of biomass, especially in small-scale applications, produces high emissions of particulate matter (PM) that have been linked to adverse health effects and global climate change. Current industrial particulate control solutions are prohibitively expensive for use in small scale biomass burners. To overcome these challenges, inexpensive and effective combustion control solutions for small ...

  5. Genetic Sex Reversal in Rainbow Trout

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 87

    Female rainbow trout show improved uniformity of growth, more desirable carcass traits and reduced expression of sexual maturation compared to mixed-sex stocks, thus improving efficiency and return for the trout farming industry. As a result, all-female stocks are much more desirable, and currently comprise the vast majority (over 90%) of the rainbow trout sold in the US. Current methods of produc ...

  6. Eco: An Online Virtual World for Secondary School Environmental Literacy and Collaborative Problem Solving

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of Eco, a multi-player game to prepare high school students to be environmentally literate citizens with 21st century skills. To play the game, students will enter a shared online world featuring a simulated ecosystem of plants and animals. Students will co-create the civilization by measuring, modeling, and analyzing the underlying ecosystem. Students ad ...

  7. Improved Materials and Structures for Large Area Cryogenic Detector Windows

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: 03b

    Cryogenic soft X-ray detectors are enabling new analytical capabilities for science, engineering, materials characterization, and time-resolved studies. X-ray microcalorimeter detectors are increasingly being used at synchrotron light sources, with scanning electron microscopes and other analytical instrumentation. These detectors must be protected from the environments in which they operate by so ...

  8. Low cost, AutoNomous NMR and Multi-sensor Soil Monitoring Instrument

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 18d

    This proposal addresses the need for low-cost sensors to provide accurate, long-term in-situ monitoring of soil moisture content, and other physical and chemical soil properties of relevance to carbon cycling. Vista Clara proposes to develop very low-cost, highly accurate unattended NMR soil moisture measurement sensors for long term monitoring of soil moisture and other physical and chemical prop ...

  9. Wideband Microwave Absorbers Cryogenic Vacuum Applications in Accerators

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 38a

    High order mode (HOM) absorbers are very important to stable operation of accelerators. It has been very difficult, especially for superconductor radio frequency (SRF) accelerators, to find a suitable HOM absorber material that not only can function at cryogenic temperatures and vacuum compatible with extremely clean environment but with batch-to-batch repeatability of its electromagne ...

  10. Silicon Carbide MOSFET-based Full-Bridge for Fusion Science Applications

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 16d

    Switching power amplifiers (SPAs) have a wide variety of applications within the fusion science community, including feedback and control systems for dynamic plasma stabilization in tokamaks, inductive and arc plasma sources, Radio Frequency (RF) helicity and flux injection, RF plasma heating and current drive schemes, ion beam generation, and RF pre-ionizer systems. SiC MOSFETs offer ...
