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. Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments


    Proposal title: Resilient Wayside Structures to Reduce Severity of Passenger Equipment Collisions and Derailments Additional passenger fatalities/injuries can occur during derailments involving interaction with wayside structures. Analogously, automobile fatalities often result from interaction of vehicles with roadside structures; personnel hazard reduction is a key design criterion for roadsid ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Micro-aligned 1 Tesla solenoid for high-energy bunched-beam electron cooling

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 29d

    The JLab Electron-Ion Collider (JLEIC) is proposed to collider spin-polarized beams of electrons and ions at high energy and high luminosity- Sustaining high luminosity requires the use of bunched-beam electron cooling to control emittance growth in the circulating ion beam- The electron cooling requires that a bunched electron beam be coalesced with the ion bunches so that they travel with the sa ...

  7. Miniature Recoil Ion Mass Spectrometer enables correlative elemental isotopic and backscatter analysis from solid nanovolumes

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Mass spectrometric measurement of elemental isotopic ratios from solids has been mostly obtained by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) which has a sensitivity for almost all elements superior to Xray fluorescence and laser desorption ICPMS- In SIMS elemental and molecular ions are liberated from the near surface of a solid by energetic micron or submicron focused ion beams and extracted with a ...

  9. High Performance Computing for Rapid Design and Optimization of Roll-to-Roll Etch Processes

    SBC: Sandbox Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: 03a

    Despite its potential to lower costs and increase throughput, roll-to-roll nanomanufacturing has yet to become widely used by the private sector due to a lack of industry standardization and the dearth of available data on roll-to-roll process limits- To address this knowledge gap and increase roll-to-roll adoption, a high-performance computing simulation tool will be developed- This tool will pro ...
