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. Ultra Lightweight High Pressure Hydrogen Fuel Tanks Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    At the present time, carbon fiber tanks are very expensive, with the high pressure vessel industry standard Toray T700 carbon fiber costing between $20 and $50 per kilogram alone. At this high price, the carbon fiber currently comprises as much as 75% of the overall tank cost and is a major roadblock on the path to commercialization. To make hydrogen fuel cells in early market and light-duty vehic ...

  4. Software Architecture for High-Speed Synchronous Network Instrumentation

    SBC: Crossfield Technology Llc            Topic: 32d

    Particle detectors and other large-scale experimental apparatus employ a large number of channels producing very high data rates. A high-speed, synchronous data acquisition system is needed that uses commodity high-bandwidth networks for high-rate transmission of collected data from the data source to storage or control systems. Detector elements must be synchronized to within 10 ns and event tri ...

  5. A Python Interface to Trilinos/Tpetra for High-Level Access to HPC Solvers

    SBC: ENTHOUGHT, INC.            Topic: 02b

    For many classes of programming problems that require parallel libraries, years of experience are required to effectively use those libraries, and frequently they are difficult to use, requiring complicated programming interfaces. The large time investment and limited usability prohibit typical domain specialists, who have limited programming expertise, from creating parallel codes and benefiting ...

  6. High-Power High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power. Many other applications including semiconductor processing, cellular-telephone base station transmitters and military communication systems simila ...

  8. Improvement of Sb-based III-V SLS Epi Materials for IR FPA Applications

    SBC: INTELLIEPI IR, INC            Topic: 05a

    IIIV super latticebased detectors incorporating antimony allow highperformance infrared detection in key midwave (5m) to beyond long wave (10m) wavelengths. Overcoming technical challenges related to the epitaxial growth will enable a large cost reduction and performance boost to remote sensing in the infrared. This effort will focus on defect reduction in strainedlayer super lattice (SLS) dete ...

  9. High Specific Activity Sm-153 by Post Irradiation Isotope Separation

    SBC: IsoTherapeutics Group LLC            Topic: 46b

    Samarium-153 (153Sm) has ideal nuclear properties for a variety of therapeutic applications; however, it is only available in low specific activity (radioactivity/weight) form. While large quantities can be made by the 152Sm(n,)153Sm reaction in a medium flux reactor such as at the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center (MURR), typical irradiation parameters result in less th ...
