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. Electrical Energy Storage System by SMES Method for Ultra-High Power and Energy Density

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: AF11BT31

    ABSTRACT: The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Tallahassee, FL in collaboration with Dr. Justin Schwartz of the North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Raleigh, NC propose in this Phase 2 effort to develop the critical technologies necessary for the implementation and operation of an airborne high temperature superconductor (HTS) superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) device with par ...

  2. Corrosion Resistant Naval Alloys: Innovative Multi-Scale Computational Modeling and Simulation Tools

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09C01

    The proposed effort will create software that will serve as an integration tool to link the results of the material degradation research due to corrosion fatigue into a usable structural analysis tool. Fatigue failure due to corrosion is a multi-disciplinary, multi-scale problem that needs to integrate several mechanisms for accurate simulation of the damage state and better prediction of failure ...

  3. High Rate Segmented Germanium Detector System (HRGe)

    SBC: Phds Co.            Topic: 23a

    The NNSA Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation missions include monitoring, assaying, and identifying Special Nuclear Materials (SNM). These activities commonly occur in facilities having large quantities of additional nuclear materials causing high background count rates that obscure measurements using ordinary spectroscopic radiation detectors. The segmented HRGe germanium detector system will be exp ...

  4. Instrumentation and Conrol Design for Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19e

    Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) of light water designs are moving toward deployment and advanced SMRs are on their way to becoming a reality. Although the fundamental design characteristics of these reactors are well established, a list of important issues still remains. Among them is the Instrumentation and Control (I & amp;C) sensors for measurement of the variables needed for process control ...

  5. Strategy for Implementation of Fixed and Mobile Wireless Technologies in Crowded and Confined EMI Environments of Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19h

    Wireless technologies have increased efficiency in many industrial settings across the world by enabling a mobile workforce and improving communications. In fact, some studies project that wireless implementation could save nuclear facilities up to $6,000,000 per year in the maintenance department alone. Unfortunately, the nuclear power industry has been slow to adopt wireless technology as a res ...

  6. Development of an In-Situ Method for Cable Condition Monitoring in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 14c

    As nuclear power plants extend their operating life beyond 40 years, attention is being focused on the health of the insulation material of important cables. Faced with the prospect of an extremely expensive, wholesale replacement of thousands of miles of cables, nuclear facilities need a cost-effective, non-destructive, remote, and in-situ method to determine whether or not cables are healthy o ...

  7. Modular Planar Germanium Detector Systems for High Resolution Gamma-Ray Spectroscopy and Tracking Arrays

    SBC: Phds Co.            Topic: 42b

    The Department of Energy maintains germanium gamma-ray detector arrays for Nuclear Physics research. Germanium gamma-ray detector technology has been an important factor in the historic success of these user facilities. The present and next generation facilities would be most effectively utilized by larger germanium detectors providing better spatial resolution and higher count-ray capacity. New M ...

  8. Quantitative Methods for Reliability and Fault Tolerance Testing of Digital Instrumentation and Control

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19a

    Replacement of obsolete analog systems with software-based digital systems in nuclear facilities has been hindered by significant costs associated with traditional quality assurance testing. This project proposes advanced software validation tools that will ensure that digital systems are safe, reliable, and cost effective for the nuclear industry.

  9. Condition Monitoring of Live Cables in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19e

    As the current fleet of operating nuclear power plants ages, equipment degrades and causes increased incidences of failures which lead to plant shutdowns. This proposal offers to develop testing technology for fault detection in live electrical circuits to identify and resolve problems as they occur.

  10. Improved Design Package for Fracture Mechanics Analysis

    SBC: VEXTEC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141075

    ABSTRACT: The damage tolerance approach is used widely in aerospace industry and has a physics-based foundation in fracture mechanics. The fatigue crack growth rate can be determined by calculating the SIF and knowing empirically derived material parameters. Similitude is achieved for different loads, different crack sizes, and different crack shapes. The down side to fracture mechanics is that a ...
