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. Marine Environment Deployment of Undersea Sensor Arrays (MEDUSA)

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N07070

    Rapid deployment of sensor arrays into deep sea and littoral environments requires reliable mechanisms and payload packaging in order to ensure proper placement and longevity. Additionally, sensor networks require reliable, repeatable coverage areas and spacing. The methods of achieving this can change depending on whether the sensors are deployed singly or as part of a multi-sensor system. TUI pr ...

  2. Multi-Axis Doppler Direction Finder System for Relative Position and Attitude Determination

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: SB072039

    The interest in formation and cluster-based satellite applications has grown considerably in recent years, especially as launch costs have dropped and the availability of secondary rides have increased. Unfortunately, the realization of these applications has proven difficult because of challenges such as station keeping and collision avoidance. In this proposed Phase I effort, TUI will demonstrat ...

  3. Separation of Hg from Flue Gas Desulfurization Scrubber Produced Gypsum

    SBC: Frontier Geosciences Inc.            Topic: 21

    More than half of the electricity generated in the U.S. is produced by coal-fired facilities that are large producers of the toxic gas sulfur dioxide. A popular technique to limiting sulfur dioxide emissions is to utilize wet flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technologies, which convert the gas to gypsum. As part of this process, mercury, which results from burning certain coals, is transferred fro ...

  5. Indium Antimonide Substrate Growth for Affordable Large-Format Mid-Infrared (IR) Imagers


    A key component for stealth defense is the megapixel InSb based infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) used for fighter aircraft support and protection. A significant aspect inhibiting widespread military and commercial application of InSb IRFPAs is the size of the substrates. During Phase I, the Czochralski method was highly successful in growing larger diameter InSb boules that resulted in 149.2mm ...

  6. Membrane Structures for Hydrogen Separation

    SBC: Genesis Fueltech, Inc.            Topic: 33

    Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells require high-purity oxygen. This project will develop a low-cost hydrogen-permeable membrane that provides permeated hydrogen with a high-enough purity for PEM fuel cell usage. Phase I involved forming a thin palladium alloy on a permeable metallic support, where the alloy film was free of porosity or defects. A pore-free palladium alloy film was fabric ...

  7. Comprehensive Health Monitoring System for Wind Turbines

    SBC: Global Energy Concepts, Llc            Topic: 04

    Equipment reliability is of critical concern to wind power project operators and owners. Numerous examples demonstrate that the achieved operating life of some major components, most notably those in the drive train, often falls short of the design life. These failures incur very high costs, not only for the component itself, but for the equipment required for removal and replacement. Early dete ...

  8. Flexible Ultrasonic Arrays for Rapid Damage Assessment in Epoxy-based Composites

    SBC: HD LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N07126

    Flexible ultrasonic arrays can readily detect delaminations and disbonds in composites. Recent experience has shown that thermal damage in composites may also be characterized with ultrasound. This SBIR project will investigate flexible arrays for implementing this advanced ultrasonic technique. The resultant flexible array systems could be configured for rapid characterization of both therm ...

  10. Genetics management and analysis tools: GeMS

    SBC: SCISIO GENETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): During Phase I, this project successfully implemented a Genetics Management System (GeMS) in partner labs for testing and requirements gathering. During Phase II, the project will expand these efforts towards additional labs and will implement new functionalities into GeMS, increasing the data-managing and data sharing capabilities of GeMS. Our Phase I accompli ...
