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. MINIATURE MICROSENSOR ARRAY BIOMIMETIC "ELECTRONIC NOSE" FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF AIRCRAFT FIRES.

    SBC: Microsensor Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT DAY FIRE DETECTORS NORMALLY EMPLOY A SINGLE SENSOR, SUCH AS AN OPTICAL DENSITY OR IONIZATION DETECTOR, THAT HAS WELL KNOWN LIMITATIONS. ALARM DECISIONS ARE THUS BASED ON A SINGLE MEASUREMENT THAT IS OFTEN INACCURATE, AND INSENSITIVE. WE PROPOSE TO USE AN ARRAY OF VERY SMALL AND INEXPENSIVE SOLID-STATE DEVICES THAT ARE HIGHLY SENSITIVE TO A VARIETY OF PHYSICAL EFFECTS AND CHEMICAL VAPOR PRO ...

  2. AN ON-LINE WAVEGUIDE REFRACTOMETER FOR THE EDIBLE OIL HYDROGENATION PROCESS

    SBC: COLE ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN OPTICAL WAVEGUIDE OF KNOWN REFRACTIVE INDEX (RI) CHARACTERISTICS BECOMES AN ON-LINE PROCESS REFRACTOMETER FOR MEASURING THE RI, HENCE IODINE VALUE (IV), OF EDIBLE OILS UNDERGOING PARTIAL HYDROGENATION. THE REFRACTOMETER OPERATES IN THE PRESENCE OF NICKEL CATALYST AND DIATOMACEOUS EARTH USED IN THE HYDROGENATION PROCESS. THE CLADLESS WAVEGUIDE, EXCITED BY A MONOCHROMATIC LIGHT SOURCE, WOULD BE I ...

  3. Evaluation of a split-pond production system for baitfish culture

    SBC: HARRY SAUL MINNOW FARM, INC.            Topic: 87

    Arkansas produces 80 percent of all the baitfish in the US and annually exports more than 6 billion baitfish nationwide. However, baitfish farmers have suffered from a productivity reduction due to serious fish losses resulting from interminable predation and extensive inventory control in traditional ponds. Recently, unprecedented bird predation and unknown factors, possibly due to climate change ...

  4. Development of an effective non-antibiotic dry-off agent for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, discarded milk, chronic morbidity, and prophylactic antibiotic use in the dairy industry. The majority of new infections are associated with the dry period, during which the udders are temporarily engorged with milk that often leaks from the teat ends. Furthermore, the three major agencies of the U.S. ...

  6. Reliability of Commercially Available and State-of-the-Art SiC MOSFETs Under Gate Stress and Body Diode Stress

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    An ideal transistor from a circuit designers standpoint consists of an ultra-low on-resistance, majority carrier switching, low gate current drive, and normally-off design. These features are inherent in the silicon carbide (SiC) power MOSFET, with the small footnote that the device, although having surpassed many hurdles along the way, is still plagued by a few key issues that limit commercial ad ...

  7. Highly Efficient, High Power Density GaN-based DC-DC Converters for Grid-Tied Energy Storage Applications

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    APEI, Inc. is proposing in this Phase I effort to design and build a scalable, high-efficiency, high-power density, gallium nitride (GaN)-based DC-DC converter for grid-tied energy storage applications. The project approach will utilize a soft switching dual active bridge DC-DC converter with state-of-the-art GaN power semiconductor switches and advanced power packaging techniques to efficiently t ...

  8. Late Award- Nanocomposite Coatings for Low-Cost Motor Windings in Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 06g

    Electric vehicles, including hybrids in the nearer term, are the principal transportation technology by which the United States can become independent of foreign oil, can become energy independent overall, and can effect control over greenhouse emissions. For this to become reality, electric vehicle costs need to come down and performance needs to improve. For electric vehicle motors, the goals ...

  9. Direct Digital Secondary Electron Signal Acquisition Probe for Scanning Electron Microscope.

    SBC: SCIENCETOMORROW LLC            Topic: 08a

    ScienceTomorrow in collaboration with Dr. David C Joy, at the University of Tennessee Research is proposed to fabricate direct digital Quantitative Secondary Electron Detectors (QSED) for scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). If successful, commercial versions of the QSED would transform the SEM/STEM into a quantitative, metrological tool with enhanced capabilities that, in turn, would broaden re ...

  10. High Temperature (300c) Silicon Carbide (SiC)-Based Integrated Gate Drivers for Wide Bandgap Power Devices

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 08d

    In this Phase II proposal, APEI, Inc. will continue development of its patented high temperature gate driver technology, enabling the next generation of high-efficiency, high power density converters. At the conclusion of Phase II, APEI, Inc. will have designed, fabricated, and tested a high temperature (300 C) SiC application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) gate driver. The fabricated SiC ASIC ...
