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. Passive Acoustic Metamaterial Proppants for Advanced Fracture Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Ineffective fracture design and practices in unconventional oil and natural gas wells present environmental risks and reduce the production efficiency of hydraulic fracturing, largely due to the inability to measure propped fracture geometry and behavior using current proppants and available tools. In this project, a unique proppant detection technology based on acoustic metamaterials is being dev ...

  2. A Rapid Damage Assessment System Using Machine Vision to Detect Damage to Utility Grid Infrastructure

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 05b

    Power outages from natural disasters not only result in billions of dollars of losses, associated health and safety impacts can result in significant loss of life. After a disaster, damage assessments of electrical grid infrastructure are critical for developing a strategy for power restoration including the optimal allocation of resources. Despite improvements, the damage assessment process is st ...

  4. Smart Acoustic Cement for Well Integrity Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Wellbore integrity is of critical importance for ensuring efficient well operations as well as human health and environmental safety. An increasing numbers of wells are being drilled in areas of large populations that rely on subsurface sources of drinking water. The ability to assess well integrity would further reduce the risk of aquifer contamination due to inadequate cement jobs. A cost-effect ...

  5. Zobi® Based Processes for Ultra-low Energy Algal Harvesting and Dewatering

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08d

    A successful algal industry would be transformative in the US. The very high productivity of algae relative to land plants will drive massive job creation in rural areas, provide biofuel and biopolymers to reduce dependence on foreign sources of oil, reduce fertilizer run-off with its corresponding water quality impairment, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and enable use of currently underutilized ...

  6. Development of breeding strategies for Nitzschia sp.

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    Renewable algae fuels are the source of energy for the future. It was demonstrated that algae fuels can be produced and they were successfully used in demonstration airplane flights and cars. The cost of algae oil is still high and cannot compete with fossil fuels. High algae growth and ability to accumulate oil fast are the key factors that will make algae based biofuels affordable. Diatoms are t ...

  7. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor in ...
