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.

  2. In-situ Sensors for Cathodic Protection Interrelationships Modeling

    SBC: SENCONTROLOGY, INC.            Topic: 132PH2

    To adequately protect underground pipelines, a coating (including polyurethane foams) must conduct CP current when disbondment occurs. The realization of a reliable, multi-functional process/material system that can ensure urethane foams not only perform in harmony with CP, but establishing the worthiness of their continued use would be of major benefit to the national transportation system. Senc ...

  3. Innovative Removal of Agriculturally Related Pollutants from Surface Water Tributaries in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

    SBC: Micronic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Large areas of the Chesapeake Bay watershed support intense agricultural operations includingcrop farming, large poultry production facilities (LPPFs), and confined animal feedingoperations (CAFOs). Increasingly, these agricultural operations add significant amounts ofpollutants, from water run off into the watersheds, and infiltrate the groundwater. For example,the Shenandoah Valley has suffered ...

  4. Novel Spacer Textiles for Insect Control

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 813

    Luna will design, manufacture, and test of first generation spacer textiles to prevent plant infestation using the tomato plant as a model system and insect pests on tomato. The proposed research will utilize inexpensive, commercially available materials which will make the process cost effective and scalable.

  5. Rural Community Well Water Treatment Field Pilot

    SBC: Micronic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84

    In the United States population increases and economic growth are imposing ever-increasing demands on limited water resources. It is critical that the demand for food is met, and that precious water resources are protected for the agricultural economy to be robust and growing. Protecting and restoring surface and ground water resources for drinking and other uses is a major challenge while maintai ...

  6. Low Loss Polymer Optical Fiber and Components for High Speed Optical Networks

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 01b

    This DOE SBIR program would develop a manufacturing process to produce plastic optical fibers with bandwidth, bend loss and ease of installation significantly improved over currently available products. Current polymer optical fibers are manufactured using bulk polymer processing methods. These methods limit the types of fiber waveguides that may be formed, so significantly l ...

  7. SiC for Nuclear Parts

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: 16b

    Generation IV Gas-Cooled Reactors require advanced structural materials capable of resisting extreme conditions of radiation exposure, high heat flux, corrosive environments and thermo- mechanical stresses. Metallic alloys such as stainless steel and Zircaloy used in fabricating fuel assembly grids, nozzles, strainers and spacers for generation IV Gas-Cooled Reactors, run the risk of melting when ...

  8. Forensic Storage Bags for Radioactively Contaminated Samples

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: 28a

    The collection, documentation, and transportation of contaminated material are sensitive and time consuming processes. Samples collected from nuclear related incidents complicate the process further. Proper packaging of technical nuclear forensic (TNF) samples is critical to maintaining the integrity of the forensic samples and provide barriers against the radiation emitted from nuclear samples. C ...

  9. Advanced Reusable Mandrel for Ceramic Cladding Fabrication

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 19b

    The use of advanced ceramic materials, such as silicon carbide, for light water reactor fuel cladding is being investigated, in part due to the increased safety margin afforded by this technology over conventional zircaloy metallic claddings. In light of the Fukushima events, safety concerns have come to the forefront of public scrutiny of commercial nuclear generated power and spurred activity ...

  10. Advanced Magnesium Matrix Composites for Lightweight Vehicles

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: 07b

    Light weight ceramic hollow spheres-filled metal alloy syntactic foams have potential to replace heavy metal structures used in load bearing structural applications. These syntactic foams have a combination of low density and high strength, modulus, and damage tolerance. Aluminum/hollow ceramic composite is the most commonly investigated system for light weight applications. Magnesium, with the l ...
