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. STTR Phase I: Directional minimally invasive microwave antenna for precise spatial control of thermal ablation

    SBC: Precision Microwave Inc.            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project include development of a commercial proof-of-concept percutaneous directional microwave ablation (MWA) applicator which may provide medical practitioners a new approach for treating cancer. In clinical use, a directional MWA applicator will facilitate both procedural and technical simplification of MW ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Dual-pH Water Splitting Device Comprising Earth-Abundant Electrocatalysts

    SBC: Avium, LLC            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will assess the commercial viability of using new non-precious metal catalysts to produce hydrogen by splitting water. Electrolyzers made with these new catalysts have the potential to deliver higher efficiencies and lower capital costs than currently available systems. The market for hydrogen today is $115 billion per year. Currently, hydrog ...

  3. An Analytical Technology Platform to Identify Symbiotic Interactions Between PGPR and Root Microbiome Members from Biofuel Feedstocks

    SBC: Powers & Zahr, LLC            Topic: 22a

    The overall goal of this STTR proposal is to establish a commercial microwell technology for high-throughput screening and characterization of interactions that are critical to plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) survival and function. PGPR can be used to improve crop stress tolerance by enhancing root function; providing nutrient uptake, nitrogen fixation, hormone regulation, and suppress ...

  4. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li-foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625-cm2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to outperform the standards set by the ANSI N42.53 standards, and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrometer for isotope ...

  5. Advanced Silicon Diode Switch for HPRF Systems

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT023

    The ultimate goal of the phase II effort is to build Si-based PCSS 10kV-modules and compare coupling of those modules to different microwave radiation technologies. The microwave radiating technologies include at least non-linear transmission lines and direct drive antenna; comparisons and system-level tradeoffs will be identified through normalized field measurements.

  8. Towed Magnetic Anomaly Detection (MAD) Aerodynamic Modeling for Rotary Wing Platforms

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: N15AT009

    The technical requirements for the simulation of a helicopter towing an aircraft while performing a MAD mission are identified. Several technical solutions to achieve high stability during the mission are presented. In Phase I, a simulation will be set up to begin trade studies on the proposed mission. Also, if needed, flight tests will be conducted in Phase I, as proof-of-concept validation. In P ...

  9. Advanced Silicon Diode Switch for HPRF Systems

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N15AT023

    Silicon-based photoconductive switch technology, despite its widespread industrial use, has not reached its limit in repetition-rate nor recovery-time. While traditional Si-PCSS systems have demonstrated poor recovery time (tens to hundreds of microseconds), new understanding in absolute photo-carrier generation and the resultant reduced sweepout time, provides one means to get beyond this seeming ...

  10. ICE Ignition Using Transient Plasma Acceleration

    SBC: ARC TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: 17e

    Lean-burn gasoline engines have difficulty reliably igniting fuel mixtures at sufficiently high air to fuel ratios. Common ignition systems are based on a spark gap driven by a pulse transformer ignition coil). Unfortunately, these systems have small plasma excitation areas, are slow, wear down the spark plug electrodes, and are not suitable for high pressure engines. The use of transient plasma i ...
