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. Unstructured Mesh Technologies for Massively Parallel Simulation and Data Analysis of Magnetically Confined Plasmas

    SBC: Simmetrix Inc            Topic: 23c

    The simulation of magnetically confined plasmas requires consideration of multiple overlapping scales. Continuum models address reactor scale behaviors, while particle methods capture fine scale behavior. The complex combination of physics and reactor geometry results in simulations involving massive calculations and data sets, which can only be executed on parallel computers. Thus, there is a cri ...

  2. Commercialization of an Ultra-Thin, Bendable, High Efficacy OLED Light Engine

    SBC: OLEDWorks LLC            Topic: 10b

    OLED lighting panels have been available commercially for several years, with relatively slow adoption into commercial and consumer fixtures in the US. This project addresses both channels through the commercialization of an ultra-thin, bendable, high-efficacy OLED light engine in which a panel and driver are engineered together in one low-cost, easy-to-use package. The most significant benefit of ...

  3. Development of the Ultra-Low Loss Superconducting Resonators Integrated with Detectors for Frequency-Domain Multiplexing Readout of Future Cosmic Microwave Background Experiments

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 28f

    Superconducting transition edge sensors are a key technology for measuring the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation leftover from the early universe. To reach the large number of sensors (~400,000-500,000) needed for next generation experiments, solutions must be found to reduce time, weight, size, and cost of the sensor arrays. This project addresses these issues by both integrating the sensors ...

  6. Integrated, Interoperable Software Environment for Fusion Simulation and Data Analysis Tools

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The promise of fusion energy is enormous - an energy system whose fuel is obtained fromsimple ingredients, and which yields zero carbon emissions to the atmosphere. However, realizing this vision requires undertaking one of the most challenging programs of scientific research and development that has ever been undertaken. Predictive simulation plays a crucial role in fusion energy research. Such s ...

  7. Resident Inline Robot for Leakage Inspection, Repair, and Prevention of Methane Emissions

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    With a vast network of over 400 thousand miles of transmission pipeline and over one million miles of aging distribution pipeline in the U.S., it is a huge endeavor to continuously monitor pipeline integrity, detect leaks, and repair leaks. Conventional methods to repair leaks are labor intensive and could take many hours during which there are chances for leak propagation, excessive release of me ...

  8. Integrated Multichannel Water Gas Shift Catalytic Membrane Reactor for Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: 18d

    Pre-combustionCO2 removalisanattractivecarboncaptureprocessduetothehigherCO2 concentration in the stream and higher system pressure after the water-gas-shift reaction. These characteristics permit CO2 capture in an energy-efficient and cost-effective way because of hundreds times higher throughput and a much smaller equipment footprint than in current post-combustion CO2 capture scenarios. Current ...

  9. Novel Medium Speed Wind Turbine Generator

    SBC: Lcdrives Corp.            Topic: 14c

    Wind turbines provide an environmentally clean way of generating energy in ever more cost effective ways. Sites that that are classified as ‘high class’ generate power at lower costs than other generation alternatives. Unfortunately, the number of these sites is limited and lower costs and/or higher outputs are needed for future sites to be cost effective. This is particularly true with the ph ...
