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. Novel Low Cost Two-dimensional Atomically Precise Covalent Organic Membranes

    SBC: NCO Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels has been identified as one of the most important and difficult problems facing our society. The post combustion CO2 capture from flue gas is particularly challenging due to the relatively low pressure (1 atm) and high temperature (~70 ºC) of flue gas, and its small CO2 concentration (

  2. Robotic Additive Manufacturing Path Planning via HPC

    SBC: Tucker Innovations Inc.            Topic: 02a

    Robots can drop pieces of plastic or metal in a pattern to build something but new software is needed to make the path the robot needs to follow. This work will build software that runs on high performance computers to determine the correct printing paths for the robots.

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Very Low-head Modular Turbine with Advanced Hydrodynamics and Power Take-off

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 15a

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

  6. Optical fiber integration into Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox/Ag/AgX and (RE)Ba2Cu3Ox superconducting coils

    SBC: Lupine Materials and Technology, Inc.            Topic: 27f

    High-temperature superconductors (HTS) are a vital technology for future particle accelerators, motors, generators and other electric power systems, fusion reactors, and many other medical and defense applications requiring high magnetic fields. One remaining limiting factor limiting to the implementation of HTS systems is the lack of adequate sensors to monitor the temperature and strain states o ...

  7. Adaptive Materials for SHM

    SBC: Aura Technologies Llc            Topic: AF17AT018

    Bennett Advanced Research proposes to examine fundamental properties of adaptive materials for use with Additive Manufacturing technologies. The focus will be on developing a system for spacecraft Self Health Monitoring (SHM).

  8. High-Quality AlGaN Substrates for Optical and Electronic Applications

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF17AT024

    Kyma Technologies, the leading domestic supplier of crystalline III-N substrate materials, is teamed with leading AlGaN materials & device experts at Sandia National Laboratory, to develop high-quality AlGaN templates in Phase I and free-standing AlGaN substrates in Phase II. Understanding that the commercialization potential of AlGaN templates and substrates requires a cost-effective and diameter ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Atmospheric Plasma Surface Activation of High Strength Steels for Electroplating

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC PLASMA SOLUTIONS            Topic: AF171003

    The current surface activation process used to activate the surface of landing gear parts uses an aggressive grit blasting technique prior to electroplating. This technique is effective, but requires large amounts of blast media, requires a pre-cleaned surface and the process removes up to 0.1mils of substrate, much more than necessary. There is an urgent need for a process that can easily and eff ...
