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. Scalable Network of Low-Cost, Self-Powered Wireless Sensors For Commercial Buildings

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Conventional indoor environmental monitoring technologies are expensive, cumbersome to install and maintain, and do not provide the distributed granularity required to capture the necessary details for efficient energy management of commercial buildings. Developments in wireless sensor networks (WSN) provide substantial framework for monitoring and addressing indoor environments at scale. However ...

  2. A Thermal Deoxygenation Process for Cellulosic Biomass Conversion to Energy-Dense Biofuels

    SBC: SeaChange Group LLC            Topic: 10b

    This Department of Energy Small Business Technology Transfer Research Phase I project proposal aims to develop an intensive thermo chemical conversion method of biomass to non-ethanol biofuels. There is a substantial need for alternative sources of domestic transportation fuels to displace demand for foreign oil imports. Petroleum imports are proven to increase signs of global warming, compromise ...

  3. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this Phase I STTR project is to investigate the application of a new class of metallic nanoparticles exhibiting a star-shaped geometry (nanostars) for use as in vivo probes of chemical and biological warfare agents. In contrast to their more commonplace spherical cousins, particles with this novel geometry have recently gained interest due to their ability to focus and enha ...

  4. Radiation-hardened, Non-volatile Memory for Aerospace and Defense Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF112087

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened, non-volatile (NV) memory in aerospace and defense applications and in reliable, long-life, high-speed NV memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight. Recent refocus on magnetic memory technologies, stemming f ...

  5. Graphene Memory Device

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF121055

    ABSTRACT: A need exists for a reliable, low cost radiation-hardened digital memory in aerospace and defense applications and in long-life, high-speed memory for terrestrial and commercial applications. Present offerings can accomplish the objective, but only at the expense of performance, power, size, and weight with device redundancy and shielding. Recent focus on Graphene and its capabilities ...

  6. In-Service Fatigue Loads Data Gathering

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: AF112213

    ABSTRACT: Structural monitoring of the landing gear of fixed and rotary wing aircraft is of critical importance to the Air Force. These structures are subjected to repeated large dynamic loads that are highly variable in nature. In order to track these structures"fatigue over time, the magnitude and direction of load events and the number of fatigue cycles must be recorded. Smart, embedded ...

  7. High Flow Gain Inlet Cover Treatment for Inducer Cavitation Suppression

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF121188

    ABSTRACT: Cavitation which leads to head falloff and feed system instabilities are a constant source of problems for the low net positive suction head (NPSH) pumps that are needed for advanced liquid rocket engines. Head falloff limits the pumps capability to deliver propellant at the required pressure and cavitation induced instabilities are a significant source of structural failures in rocket ...

  8. Microgrid Wind Turbine for Distributed Generation

    SBC: Pika Energy Llc            Topic: 07c

    Establishing a secure domestic supply of clean energy has emerged as an existential challenge facing the US, given geopolitical threats to global energy supplies and serious risks arising from climate change. Utility-scale wind turbine technology has grown rapidly to supply 2% of US electricity needs, but many regions are not suitable for large wind turbines. Distributed generation of wind energy ...

  9. High-Power High-Eefficiency Amplifiers for Ssynchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used in synchrotron light sources require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime electrical power. We will review available transistors, analyze high-efficiency power-amplifier techniques, and experimentally evaluate candidate amplifi ...

  10. High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for 325 and 650 MHz

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 60c

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime electrical power. We will review available transistors, analyze high-efficiency power-amplifier techniques, and experimentally evaluate candidate amplifi ...
