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. High-Accuracy Angle Generator For Angular Calibrations To Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  2. Turn-Key Small Satellite Thruster with On-Demand Pressurization and Non-Toxic Propellant

    SBC: Benchmark Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    As the new space revolution develops, the number of small satellites is expected to grow to thousands launched each year. Following the current commercial satellite demonstration period, production spacecraft and constellations will depend on innovative micro-scaled propulsion technology to meet mission capability and endurance requirements. Most satellite integrators and end-users have not yet id ...

  4. Behind-the-Meter, Distributed Scale CSP System Enabled by Very Low-cost Working Fluid and Thermal Storage

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12f

    In some areas of the USA and Europe, the installed capacity of renewable generation has reached a level at which wholesale energy prices can drop below zero due to overproduction relative to baseload capacity. The value of energy exported to the grid for behind-the-meter (BTM) systems is dropping, with policies in many states now promoting self-consumption of produced energy rather than net-meteri ...

  5. Device to Promote Snow Shedding from PV Panels to Improve Energy Yield and Critical Infrastructure Resilience

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12d

    Winter storms cause disruptions to transportation, the electrical grid, heating, business operation, emergency management services and on PV solar generation. Large storms can create dangerous, extreme conditions across entire regions and therefore the low-cost recovery of electricity supply and generation is of critical importance. After winter storms, PV arrays can be covered with snow for days ...

  6. Magnetic Bearings for Supercritical CO2 Service

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Supercritical CO2 power cycles are being developed for both utility-scaled power generation applications, as well as smaller waste heat recovery applications. Supercritical CO2 cycles are more efficient than current cycles, and the associated turbomachinery components are significantly smaller than that for current steam turbine-based power generation. However, sCO2 cycles operate at a combination ...

  7. Wide-Range High-Boost Turbocharging System Using Advanced Aerodynamic Design Features

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 29f

    Several automotive industry changes are leading to the need for wide-range, high-boost turbocharging systems. Engine emission requirements require good turbocharger performance over a very wide range of flow rates. Trends in engine downsizing require turbochargers to have both good high flow performance, and good low flow performance, to cover a wide range of engine rpm operation. Current methods ...

  8. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF17AT029

    Optical limiters (OL) protect sensitive optical and electronic devices from laser-induced damage. The existing passive OL utilize nonlinear optical materials transmitting low-intensity light, while blocking laser radiation with intensity exceeding certain limiting threshold (LT). The common problem with the existing OL is that, at any particular frequency range, the choice of suitable nonlinear ...

  9. Very Low Head Modular Turbine with Advanced Hydrodynamics and Power Takeoff

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 15

    According to a 2014 study commissioned by the Department of Energy, hydropower from more than 3 million untapped streams in the United States could potentially generate 65 gigawatts of electricity and help to reduce greenhouse emissions and pollution. However, the development of hydropower has been limited by several obstacles, as described by the United States Geological Survey: most of the prime ...

  10. Improving Efficiency and Reducing Costs for the Supercritical C02 Design Process

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 18

    Supercritical CO2 cycles have the potential to significantly improve efficiency and reduce emissions in power generation. However, the unique fluid dynamic properties of supercritical CO2 that enable these higher efficiencies also complicate the design and layout of the system, particularly its turbomachinery components. The problem stems specifically from the highly non-linear properties of CO2, ...
