Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18b
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

A method to visualize where the proppant load is distributed within a fracture has yet to be realized. Without this information it is difficult to determine whether a set of hydraulic fracture conditions has resulted in complete penetration into a particular energy deposit. Therefore it is impossible to tell whether all of the resources will be ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18d
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

Solid oxide fuel cells hold the greatest potential among fuel cell technologies due to their efficiency, scalability, and fuel flexibility. The primary barriers to commercialization of this technology are the cost and stability of the solid oxide fuel cells. To lower the cost and improve the robustness of solid oxide fuel cells, cell operating t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/19/16 - 03/18/17

Cell-free nucleic acid (cfNA) biomarkers circulating in the blood have the potential to serve as simple, rapid, and non-invasive diagnostic indicators. As such, cell-free biomarkers have emerged in the forefront of cancer diagnostic research with the promise of improved disease state prognostication, therapy resistance monitoring and metastasis ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: Z1.02
Budget: 06/13/16 - 06/12/18

Planetary missions (e.g., Pioneer, Cassini, or Voyager) and applications with moderate power draw and increased mobility requirements (e.g., Curiosity) have successfully employed radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTGs) as thermal-to-electric power converters. While ~100 We-class radioisotope power sources continue to be in demand, new high...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 32
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Planetary missions (e.g., Pioneer, Cassini, or Voyager) and applications with moderate power draw and increased mobility requirements (e.g., Curiosity) demand ~100s We-class continuous power sources with high reliability and robustness. To avoid the risks and challenges associated with mechanical-to-electrical energy conversion, including the us...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Plasma fusion promises safer, lower cost, power generation with no carbon emissions. Of concern in all plasma fusion systems is the ability of reduced activation ferritic martensitic (RAFM) structural materials to not only withstand operating conditions but to limit the amount of tritium permeation. Tritium retention/transmission not only create...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

The future of the fuel cell market depends on developing new infrastructure for the preparation, transportation, and storage of hydrogen. Liquefaction maximizes storage and transport efficiency, but is particularly challenging in distributed systems because of the extremely low temperatures required. While fuel reformer technology is constantly ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Mapping spectrometers have been extremely useful in multiple NASA applications, from Earth climate monitoring to identifying hydrocarbon lakes on Titan. Traditionally, imaging spectroscopy systems are not only heavy but also large in order to accommodate the long path lengths needed for spectral separation. There are several varieties, such as...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Catholic University of America

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

CubeSat/SmallSat bus infrastructure imposes stringent mass, power, footprint, and volume constraints on science instruments such as spectrometers. Nanohmics, Inc., proposes teaming with researchers at the Catholic University of America (CUA) to develop a real-time spectrometer that demonstrates photonic integrated circuit (IC) interferometric c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H8.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Solid-state thermoelectric (TE) devices provide many advantages in refrigeration (TE coolers) and power generation (TE generators). These highly reliable devices have no moving parts, operate over a large range of temperatures, and do not emit toxic or environmentally-unfriendly gases. These devices can be easily integrated into thermal energy c...
