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. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  10. Radiation-Tolerant Thermal Interface Material with High Thermal Conductivity and Adhesion for LHC Applications

    SBC: LIFE-E, LLC            Topic: 28d

    The Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland is the largest particle accelerator in the world. An upgrade bringing higher resolution (higher luminosity) is called HL-LHC and will require improved lightweight materials. Thermal interface materials having higher thermal conductivity (> 4 W/mK) with low atomic mass and excellent radiation-resistance are required to achieve tight tolerances on detectors. ...
