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. GDL Media Development for Improved PEM Fuel Cell Performance

    SBC: TECHVERSE, INC.            Topic: 17b

    Hydrogen fueled PEMFC stack systems for powering automobiles offer an excellent opportunity for the United States to reduce its dependence on foreign oil and to reduce emissions- However, cost of the fuel cell power system is still too high compared to the 2020 DOE target of $40/kW- The achievable stack power density is the single most dominant factor affecting cost of automotive stacks and it is ...

  2. High Efficiency RF Power Sources for Accelerator Applications

    SBC: USML L.L.C.            Topic: 29b

    The Department of Energy operates various linear particle accelerators that consume massive amounts of electricity- One of the key components of a particle accelerator is the radio frequency (RF) power amplifier- By increasing the efficiency of this amplifier while keeping its cost down, it is possible to save considerable amounts of energy and reduce operating costs- RF power amplifiers convert e ...

  3. An in-situ device to monitor root-soil-microbe interactions

    SBC: HI Fidelity Genetics, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Finding better ways to measure rhizosphere properties has the potential to transform agriculture. Better understanding of the root-microbe-soil interactions that characterize the rhizosphere will help reduce fertilizer, pesticide, and herbicide inputs, improve effective carbon dioxide sequestration, enhance biofuel crop production, and lead to more efficient farms with higher profitability. But th ...

  4. 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 dentified 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 (

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

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Increasingly stringent exhaust emissions and fuel economy legislation is forcing automotive engine designers to: 1) demand increased pressure ratios from turbocharger compressors to ensure complete fuel combustion, 2) use Exhaust Gas Recirculation for emission reduction, and 3) reduce engine displacement while maintaining or even increasing output power to reduce fuel consumption. These three chan ...

  6. Drone Spatiotemporal Monitoring of F Area Radiation

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 16c

    Groundwater has value and is a renewable natural resource. However, when contaminated by activities (military or economic), groundwater can become unusable, nonrenewable, and create a moving hazard to the public. Developing detailed information about contamination migration supports policy decision-making by cost-benefit analysis. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of integrating drone m ...

  7. Metamaterial Void Sensor for Fast Transient Testing

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 30a

    After the Daiichi nuclear disaster the US Congress placed emphasis on accident tolerant fuels for reactors. During accident events, voids in cooling fluid can cause cladding weakening, and it is important to measure these effects in a controlled test.The project will demonstrate the feasibility of constructing a fast void detector that can detect and localize voids, with a quantifiable detection l ...

  8. Fully-Automated PV Array Assembly System

    SBC: Intelli Products Inc            Topic: 12d

    Solar Photovoltaics is the fastest growing source of electric power. While overall solar array costs have fallen dramatically year after year helping drive solar growth to date, "Installation Costs" have grown as a percentage of total costs, with solar soft costs now over 40% in even the utility-scale market. Further, the Net Zero Energy Buildings market is unable to utilize the most cost-effectiv ...

  9. Magnetic Bearings for Supercritical CO2 Service

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 29f

    The technology development for the supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power plant is well underway, and the first pilot plants are now under construction. The new pilot plants are sized for a 10 MW net power output; a good size to gain valuable data for larger utility scale power plants. This is also a very good size for the smaller, distributed power applications. The distributed power application is envis ...
