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. Self-Sustaining, Intelligent Pavement Systems

    SBC: Solar Roadways            Topic: 091FH5

    As stated in the solicitation, the pavement infrastructure in the US covers a large surface area and requires intensive energy and natural resources. Vehicles that travel over these pavements are also resource intensive. Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with modular Solar Road Panels: structurally-engineered solar panels that can be driven upon. The roadwa ...

  2. Disruptive Transport/Coalescing Filtration Technology for Lipid Collection from Dilute Cultivated Algal Suspension

    SBC: Heightened Technologies            Topic: 88

    A sustainable supply of renewable biofuel will contribute to the Nation's energy security. Algal biomass is seen as having potential to be a significant source of renewable bioenergy. Microalgae-derived biofuel provides a high oil productivity with a smaller land footprint than terrestrial biofuel crops. It captures carbon dioxide and can grow on marginal lands or with salty aquifer water or w ...

  3. Development of a serotype-independent vaccine based on Salmonella T3SA proteins


    Salmonella is a bacteriathat causessevere stomach and gut distressinpeople andis the leading cause of food-borne illnesses resulting in hospitalization and death in the US. The resulting economic losses caused bythisbacteriain the livestock industry are staggering with much of the loss attributed to recalls, permanent disruption of the gut lining impairing nutrient absorption, and necessary cullin ...

  4. Development of grower applicable Alfalfa Leafcutting Bee incubation protocols to extend interruption duration for improved pollination management that improves seed yield and bee health

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 812

    The purpose of this proposal is to improve the protocols of incubation interruption of Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALBs) used in the managed pollination of alfalfa seed crop. An efficient alfalfa pollination management program coordinates bee release with bloom onset while minimizing residual pesticide hazard. Our customer feedback suggests that this approach may increase yield up to 100% for grower ...

  5. Alfalfa bloom prediction using plant images and processing techniques for the purpose of improving pollination using alfalfa leafcutting bees

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 813

    The purpose of this proposal is to conduct research that will provide alfalfa seed growers a bloom forecast application to improve their pollination practices and increase yield. Most U.S. growers outside of California use Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALB) for pollination because they increase yield by more than 50% over honey bees. Growers spend ~$400/acre for ALB's, yet our customer diligence i ...

  7. MEMBRANES AND MATERIALS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY Subtopic: High Performance Conductors "Reinforced Commercial Metals for Enhanced Electrical and Thermal Conductivity"

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMIC FIBERS, LLC            Topic: 12b

    Major improvements in the electrical and thermal conductivity of metals used in conductors are needed to improve the energy efficiency and reliability of our national electrical power systems. These metals need to be stronger and more resistant to corrosion, oxidation and fatigue which reduce the reliability and lifespan of conductors and create high costs for maintenance, repair and replacement. ...

  9. Novel Materials for Metal to Ceramic Transitions

    SBC: HiFunda LLC            Topic: 15d

    High temperature heat exchangers are seen as an enabling technology for advanced fossil energy power generation systems, such as systems that utilize power cycles based on steam or supercritical CO2. Effective ceramic to metal joining is seen as a key technology gap for high-temperature heat exchangers that, if overcome, may enable designers to exploit the high temperature corrosion resistance of ...

  10. Edge Intelligence for Virtualization and Security in Open Networks

    SBC: EntryPoint, LLC            Topic: 01a

    Subscribers to U.S. broadband access networks lack choice in services. EntryPoint and the University of Utah are currently collaborating on a research project to develop and demonstrate a network framework, called SmartEdge, which focuses on creating choice in services by enabling network operators, service providers, and subscribers to coexist on the same shared network infrastructure. The purp ...
