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. Intelligently Vibrating Dewatering Machinery

    SBC: QRDC, INC.            Topic: 21

    In the mining industry, dewatering, screening, and size separations may not be the most energy intensive processes, but they are often the major bottleneck in the whole system.. Improvements would provide tremendous potential in both energy savings and production yield. This project will develop Intelligently Vibrating Dewatering Machinery with miniaturized, ceramic-based, smart motors. The tech ...

  2. A New Method to Improve the Performance of Hydrogen Selective Silica Membranes

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 16

    High-performance, molecular sieve membranes are sought by DOE to separate hydrogen from other gases (mainly carbon diode) in coal gasification processes. However, because of defects, the selectivity of crystalline, silicate-based, molecular sieve membranes can be compromised. This project will develop technology to fix defects in these membranes by reducing pore size and improving gas selectivit ...

  3. Robust GaN-Based Photocathodes for High-Efficiency Polarized RF Electron Guns

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 37

    Compared to DC electron guns, the significantly-higher field gradients that are possible with an radio frequency (RF) gun would allow short pulse generation, which would make an RF buncher unnecessary. This in turn would allow for a much simpler injector design in high-energy beam facilities, such as the International Linear Collider. However, activated GaAs-based photocathodes, used as the elec ...

  4. Large Area, Robust GaN-Based Photocathodes for High-Efficiency UV and Cherenkov Light Detection

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 49

    Improved, high-sensitivity, large-area UV detectors are sought for many photon-counting and imaging applications. In particular, for nuclear and high energy physics research, there is a need to extend the sensitivity of photon detectors to the blue and UV wavebands. In addition, the photocathodes must have uniform larger-area detection with lower noise and higher efficiency, better tolerance to ...

  5. Inspiratory Impedance as a Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A06150

    Traumatic head and neck injuries account for 16-33% of all war-related injuries and are a leading cause of mortality upon evacuation to a definitive care setting. This application is focused on treating one of the most important determinants of outcome from severe head injury, the degree and duration of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). The main objective of this proposal is to continue the ...

  6. Flow-Field Seeding Techniques for Large Transonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF06297

    Optical measurements including laser velocimetry (LV), particle image velocimetry (PIV), and other similar techniques are becoming a more important part of aerodynamic testing. However their implementation into large production wind tunnels is severely hindered by difficulties with flow seeding. Phase I of this program will focus on the problem of seed delivery and dispersal into a transonic strea ...

  7. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills.

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    The use of carnauba wax in melt/castable explosives yields a insensitive explosive formulation that enhances overall safety for the use of these munitions in the field. However, carnauba wax is only obtained from overseas sources and there is no domestic source for this material. This leads to shortages of material and higher prices. There exists a need for a wax substitute to replace the carna ...

  8. End-to-End QoS IP Techniques for Heterogeneous Networks (EQuIP)


    Heterogeneous networks are being utilized to provide the communication infrastructure needed to transport multimedia traffic and mission critical traffic. Currently, there does not exist a complete solution that enables the efficient utilization of heterogeneous environments in order to provide end-to-end security and QoS provisioning to multimedia flows and mission critical data. During Phase I, ...

  9. Twister: An Anti-Tamper Meta-Protection Approach


    As warfare becomes more technology bound there is a growing threat of misappropriation of software that could disable or hinder US military activities. Twister provides a theoretically sound mechanism for combining anti-tamper technology in a manner that is resistant to both patching and analysis. This approach makes the individual elimination of applied protections significantly more expensive. ...

  10. Network Situational Awareness


    The ever increasing size and dynamics of networks like the GIG-NCES communications network, makes situational awareness, intrusion detection and network monitoring very difficult. Dynamic and evolving networks provide unique challenges because the location, number and addresses of the nodes in the network are constantly changing. A single tool is needed to provide administrators and users with a ...
