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. Best Practices for IntelliDrive Enabled Mobile Application Development

    SBC: Mygistics Inc.            Topic: 102FH3

    The scope of this research initiative addresses what is best practice for delivering mobile applications while ensuring a safe, consistent experience given the differing communications standards, operating systems and hardware limitations of existing and prospective personal communications devices.  It is assumed the scope of this initiative is limited to exploration of applications for consumer devices only, not on-board OEM equipment/applications that may use a passenger's personal communications device to provide network connectivity.  However, the ability of a personal device

  2. Development of an integrated actuator for real time control of spray nozzle flow rate and droplet size spectrum

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Typical agrochemical sprayers use nozzles to atomize a liquid stream into droplets; these droplets then travel to the target. Nozzles may be selected to provide a range of droplet sizes, spray distribution patterns, and flow rates for a desired liquid material application. Spray distribution, droplet size, and flow rate are important considerations in achieving a high quality agrochemical applicat ...

  3. Production of a Value-Added Crop for Greater Human Nutrition

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: 85

    The U.S. population has a deficit of dietary calcium that represents a serious challenge to public health. Many consumers, however, find current methods of increasing dietary calcium to be inconvenient, costly, or unpalatable. This SBIR Phase II proposal seeks to increase calcium levels in lettuce, a specialty crop that already comprises a significant part of the average U.S. diet. Successful Phas ...

  4. Reliability Enhancement and Ocean Demonstration of a Low Cost Wave Energy Harvester

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: 06c

    Wave energy, a promising source of renewable power generation, is unlikely to make a material contribution to US or global energy supplies unless more cost effective and robust technologies can be developed. Oscilla Power, Inc. has developed a technology for the low cost, utility scale harvesting of wave energy enabled by novel magnetic materials that has no moving parts. Following successful labo ...

  5. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Cathode Enhancement Through a Vacuum-Assisted Infiltration Technique

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology promises to provide an efficient method by which electricity can be generated from coal-derived syngas, biofuels, and natural gas, while increasing energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The large capital costs attributed to the cathode low performance and long-term stability issues are a current limitation of SOFC technologies that must be a ...

  6. Stabilized Platform for Airborne Instrumentation

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: 29c

    The DoEs Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility (ACRF) pursues accurate measurements of atmospheric radiation through its Aerial Vehicle Program (AVP). The ability to measure atmospheric radiation while in flight is a valuable capability for atmospheric research. These measurements complement satellite and ground station measurements in providing increased certainty in v ...

  7. Advanced Method of Joining RAFM/ODS Steels for Fusion Reactors

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 68d

    The materials and structures for fusion reactors must function for a long time in a uniquely hostile environment that includes combinations of high temperatures, reactive chemicals, high stresses, and intense damaging radiation. Manufacturing of components, particularly joining of materials, has been addressed as one of the critical issues. This Small Business Innovation Research Phase-I project i ...

  8. Scanning Tunneling Microscopy with a Frequency Comb

    SBC: NEWPATH RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 16b

    There is a growing need for new SPM techniques that provide additional information about the sample with higher data rates. In microwave harmonic scanning tunneling microscopy (MHSTM) a microwave signal is coupled to the STM, and several harmonics that are generated by the nonlinearity of the tunneling junction are measured to provide spectroscopic information about the sample such as identifying ...

  9. A Technology to Mitigate Syngas Cooler Fouling

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25c

    Coal gasification plants have exhibited sub-par performance and plant economics due to poor reliability and availability. A major contributor to the poor performance has been fouling of the syngas cooler located downstream of the gasifier. The fouling is due to vaporized ash from the coal gasification process depositing on the fireside surface of the tubes in the fire tube heat exchanger used for ...

  10. Novel Glycosaminoglycan Ethers for Prevention of Metastasis

    SBC: GLYCOMIRA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heparin and its derivatives block P- and L-selectin mediated metastatic spread of cancer in animal models, and they potently inhibit the matrix degrading enzyme heparanase. Moreover, several large clinical trials performed with heparin or low molecular weight heparin have shown that survival is significantly improved by daily subcutaneous administration of hepa ...
