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. Sectional Permanent Magnet Generator and Power Electronics for Multi-Megawatt, Direct Drive Wind Turbines

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: 29

    Wind power has the potential of supplying a significant percentage of the United States electrical demand at low cost. However, costs of transportation, erection, and repair must be reduced before these systems are competitive with current technology. The large size of multi megawatt turbine components makes transportation from manufacturing facilities to wind sites problematic. Once on site, t ...

  2. Integrated Scalable Parallel Firewall and Instrusion Detection System for High-Speed Networks

    SBC: Great Wall Systems            Topic: 44

    A number of simulataneous trends (ever-increasing network speeds and throughput, escalating sophistication of attacks, regulatory initiatives, and integration of networks within and without the enterprise) can cause both bottlenecks and quality-of-service degradation within the firewalls of computing systems used by the DOE and large corporations. This project will develop an advanced, scalable, ...

  3. Low Cost Carbon Fiber Composites for Lightweight Vehicle Parts


    The U.S. could significantly reduce oil consumption by decreasing the weight of its automobile fleet, especially by using lightweight carbon composite materials. However, lightweight materials in automobile structures have been problematic for two reasons: (1) the high cost of carbon fiber materials themselves, and (2) the high processing costs of these materials. Although programs exist to red ...

  4. The Capture and Sequestration of Methane for Subsequent Conversion to Higher Valued Alcohols

    SBC: Orbit Energy Incorporated            Topic: 13

    The escape of methane into the atmosphere has been identified as a major component for global warming. Compared to carbon dioxide, methane is capable of absorbing 21 times more heat. Therefore, the methane generated at sites such as coal mines, farms, and landfills must be sequestered and stored to prevent further complications of global warming. To ameliorate these methane issues, a High Solid ...

  5. A Robust Microfabricated Specimen Support with Integrated Capabilities for in situ Experimentation in the Transmission Electron Microscope

    SBC: PROTOCHIPS, INC.            Topic: 23

    As the nanotechnology revolution advances, existing and new applications are demanding improved capabilities from the transmission electron microscope ¿ in particular, higher resolution and a greater ability to manipulate specimens in situ. No known commercial system provides both accurate control over specimen temperature and the simultaneous ability to create a stable gaseous environment. T ...

  6. rDistributor- Remote Distribution of Complete Application Environments

    SBC: Rpath, Inc.            Topic: 46

    Large-scale, grid computing platforms, consisting of thousands of systems distributed across hundreds of computing facilities around the world, are needed for intensive scientific computing. Such grid computing platforms require tools that enable the rapid packaging, distribution, and installation of the necessary application software environment on systems in widely distributed computing facilit ...

  7. Fuel Cell Membrane Measurement System for Manufacturing

    SBC: Scribner Associates Incorporated            Topic: 20

    Before fuel cells will be adopted by the automotive market, the cost of proton exchange membrane (PEM) materials must be reduced through improved manufacturing quality control and quality assurance. In particular, tools and standard protocols are needed to measure keystone membrane properties: conductivity and fuel permeability. This project will develop a robust, simple membrane measurement sy ...

  8. Single Instruction, Multiple-Data Database System

    SBC: SOUTHEAST TECH INVENTURES            Topic: 43

    Current data mining platforms generally consist of a collection of conventional processors that communicate with each other via a high-speed network (a cluster) or via shared memory (a symmetric multiprocessing system). As one adds more processors to either of these systems, the processing time required to complete a particular task (such as a sequence of database queries) does not decrease linea ...

    SBC: 3F, LLC            Topic: AF06020

    Nanofiber nonwoven spunbonded materials technology is adapted for use in a personnel lowering device. The resulting device will be simple, easy to use, and relatively low cost.

  10. Single ply 3Dwoven Functionally Gradient Multi-Fiber / Multi-Matrix Composites with Thermal Management Systems

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04249

    In composites, not only can properties vary with load direction, fiber based composites also offer the unique ability to tailor material properties locally. Localized matrix or fiber architecture changes can meet local mechanical, electrical, or thermal loads within a component or vehicle, without weight penalty or resort to additional external structures. In Phase I, the team used 3TEX 3-D wea ...
