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. SBIR Phase I: Direct Measurements of Black and Brown Carbon Aerosols without Filter Collection

    SBC: 2B TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project lies in the widespread nature of the problem of airborne Black (BC) and Brown (BrC) carbon particulates. These are formed from combustion processes such as motor vehicles and ships, forest fires and biomass burning, as well as indoor cooking in developing countries. BC and BrC are important components of atmospheric aerosols (small airborne s ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Novel High Performance Insulation for Energy Efficient Appliances using Discrete Spacer Technology

    SBC: Quest Thermal Group, LLC            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I project is focused on modeling, designing, analyzing, building and testing a prototype commercial superinsulation called High Performance Multi-Layer Insulation (HPMLI). HPMLI is based on a new technology that significantly reduces heat leak, and allows a multilayer insulation to be used in commercial applications. HPMLI could provide R-235 thermal insulation, compared to current ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Reactive Additive Manufacturing of Advanced Superalloys for Turbine Engines

    SBC: SINTER PRINT INC.            Topic: MN

    This SBIR Phase II project will address the lack of high application temperature materials available for additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing, often called 3D printing, provides increased design freedom and complex features such as part consolidation and conformal cooling channels. The performance and efficiency of gas turbines and other applications can be increased by combining design ...

  6. Massively-parallel Magnet Design from a Web Browser

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 08a

    Next-generation light sources will rely on tightly arranged sequences of high-field magnets to reach ambitious beam parameters and brightness- Codes available for 3-D modeling and design of electromagnet systems are inadequate for capturing the overlapping fields from these dense arrays of magnets- Moreover, these codes suffer from poor parallel performance, leading to long turn-around times, whic ...

  9. Direct Combustion of Fine Coal from Coal Waste

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Fine coal is a coal waste generated by washing the coal at the mines, and contains as much as 80 wt% water- Due to the lack of cost effective approaches to remove the water from fine coal before feeding into a conventional boiler, the coal producers often choose to discard the fine coal- There are already approximately 2 billion tons of fine coal in abandoned ponds and 500~800 million tons in acti ...

  10. A microfluidic ice nucleating particle counter for continuous measurements from small aerial platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...
