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. Plasma Stabilization and Control of Titanium Welding

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: A06046

    The welding of titanium is of rapidly increasing importance to the Army, and this trend will accelerate as low-cost titanium becomes available. To facilitate the use of titanium in a growing set of applications, a rapid, reliable, and inexpensive joining process must be established. Gas metal arc welding is a highly desireable joining method because of high production rates and relatively low c ...

  2. Innovative Hardware-Based Chip Control Tool Holder

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: A06047

    The formation of continuous chips during metal fabrication adversely affects production times, worker safety, and production costs. The Army's ever increasing need for greater mobility and lethality demand greater precision in the machining of traditionally hard-to-machine materials, while balancing cost. Erigo Technologies LLC proposes to develop a replacement tool holder for lathes that will imp ...

  3. Highly Affordable Net- and Near-Net Forming of Fully Dense TaC for Boost Nozzle Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA05068

    Future aluminized propellant boost missile systems for DoD and MDA applications will create extremely severe conditions (temperature, pressure and particle impingement) in the nozzle region that will prevent conventional nozzle materials and designs to achieve the performance levels and costs that are being targeted for next-generation solid rocket motor (SRM) boost systems. The demonstration of z ...

  4. High Strength Ta2C-Based Compounds for UHT Boost Nozzle Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA06T007

    Future generation propellants earmarked for DoD and MDA boost vehicles will create increasingly severe conditions (temperature, pressure and particle impingement) in the nozzle region that will prevent state of the art materials and designs from achieving the performance levels and costs being targeted for next-generation solid rocket motors. The demonstration of zero or near-zero erosion in the t ...

  5. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus) are a valuable commercial and recreational species with a natural range from the southern Gulf of Maine to South Carolina. Landings of Atlantic flounders decreased from 90,000 mt in 1984 to 25,000 mt in 1994. Total annual landings of summer flounder peaked at 39.9 million pounds in 1979, but recently from 1990-2003 landings have been much lower, fluctuating ...

  6. Novel Low Cost Processes for Production of Crystalline Silicon Wafers for Photovoltaic Industry

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 28

    ¿Clean energy¿ is attracting more and more interest, which in turn exerts cost pressure on photovoltaic (PV) manufacturers for more efficient solar panel production. This project will develop a cost-effective technology to produce PV-grade silicon wafers. In Phase I, a non-oxide-based reuseable crucible was developed for the production of high purity, low oxygen content crystalline silicon ing ...

  7. Novel Microbial Hydrogen Production from Biomass Containing Waste Water

    SBC: Ion Power, Inc.            Topic: 12

    The treatment of waste water consumes a significant amount of energy, in order to reduce the organic matter to levels safe for environmental discharge. This project will develop a novel microbial-based approach to convert the organic matter in waste water into a valuable commodity, namely hydrogen. This approach would simultaneously clean the waste water and produce a fuel that can be sold to he ...

  8. Rain Erosion Modeling for Hypersonic Thermal Protection System (TPS) and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05021

    Presently, no standard rain erosion reference (code, document(s), database, etc) exists for system designers and engineers to predict the material behavior of candidate materials for sub-sonic, sonic, and hypersonic mission profiles. Historically, individual companies have taken a shoot and look approach to this subject, and relied on past performance for flight predictions. Within the community ...

  9. A Novel Diagnostic Test to Detect Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    SBC: METABOLIC SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common problem that affects the general US population and the elderly in particular. The elderly are at risk for preclinical vitamin B12 deficiency due to the increased presence of B12 malabsorption and atrophic gastritis as a consequence of aging. The deficiency of vitamin B12 in the elderly has potentially serious complications inc ...

  10. Rapid Susceptibility Testing of MDR M. tuberculosis- Phase II

    SBC: MIDI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this project is the development of a system based on high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for rapid and accurate antibiotic susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Susceptible and resistant strains of MTB, exposed to anti-MTB antibiotics, exhibit pronounced differences in mycolic acid content. Initial rese ...
