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. Fast-Scanning Nanoindenter

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 05b

    For the inspection of surface topography, nanomechanical characterization can provide crucial information concerning the performance of a material. The nanoindenter, especially the scanning nanoindenter, is a powerful tool for nanomechanical characterization. Although the majority of commercial nanoindenters provide high force and displacement sensitivity, their low bandwidth has hindered their ...

  2. Scanning Probe Microscopy


    The DOE¿s interest in the fundamental research and development of advanced materials, devices, and structures necessitates associated research into advanced characterization metrology. Such characterization needs are particularly evident in regimes operating at nanometer scales. This project is concerned with one aspect of this very broad metrology field: the measurement of high frequency magn ...

  3. A Novel System for the Sequestration and Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to useful Products using Stable Metal Oxide Catalysts

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 07a

    The combustion of fossil fuels is believed to have caused a rapid increase in the amount of carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is considered a key ¿greenhouse¿ gas and its accumulation in the atmosphere is believed to be a primary cause of the global energy imbalance that is driving climate change. This project will develop a method for capturing and converting carbon ...

  4. Advanced Coating Technology for Enhanced Performance of Microchannel Plates for High-efficiency UV and Cherenkov Light Detection

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 49a

    Nuclear physics research has a need to develop inexpensive, position-sensitive, large-sized photon detection devices for Cherenkov counters. A UV photon detector is an essential part of Cherenkov counters. Currently, microchannel plate (MCP) detectors are used extensively in UV instruments. MCPs have many advantages over the conventional photomultiplier tube (PMT) currently used in Cherenkov det ...

  5. High-Detectivity Very-Long-Wavelength Strain-Compensated Type II Superlattice Infrared Photo Detectors

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 58c

    Very-long-wavelength infrared (VLWIR) photo detectors are needed for infrared-based chemical identification and terrestrial mapping applications associated with the detection of weapons of mass destruction. This project will develop a material system for a high-performance type-II VLWIR photo detector fabricated on a GaSb substrate. The approach will involve (1) a strain-compensated type II supe ...

  6. Robust GaN-Based Photocathodes for High-Current RF Electron Injectors

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 38e

    Photocathodes play a key role in the electron injectors used at DOE accelerator facilities. Metallic photocathodes are very robust, have long lifetimes, and provide the convenience of air transportability. The main disadvantage of these cathodes is their very low quantum efficiency (QE). On the other hand semiconductor cathodes generally have much higher QE but shorter lifetime than metallic ca ...

  7. Mixed Criticality, Assured, Real-Time (MiCART) VMM

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: OSD07I10

    Without strong temporal and spatial separation guarantees provided by the underlying system, integrated mixed critical applications require verification and validation of all their hosted applications at the highest level of criticality. Since the early 1990s, time and space partitioning in commercial avionics has drastically reduced the certification burden on the lower-criticality applications. ...

  8. Xenon-Based, Host Resident, Assured CDS (XEBHRA CDS)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: OSD07I11

    Today multi-domain information sharing (MDIS) relies on single domain networks connected by highly assured, dedicated guards that implement a cross domain solution (CDS) that is trusted to move information securely between those domains. Work on Phase I of the Xenon-Based, Host Resident, Assured (XEBHRA) Cross Domain Solution SBIR explored the implications of ongoing efforts to improve configura ...

  9. AIMFIRST (Automated Intelligent Management For Integrated Strategy and Tactics)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: SB082058

    Weighted mission-centric correlation of network resources identified by automated mission course-of-action generation, supported by automated identification and mapping of underlying dynamic networks, can map administrative, business, and war fighting needs to key information assets and their underlying infrastructure. We propose to develop the necessary resource correlation engine to demonstrate ...

  10. Practical Assessment of Noise/Performance Trade for High NPR Nozzles

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N07173

    With improvements in high performance military jet aircraft engines and the increase in complexity of the exhaust systems the noise produced has become problematic. Reducing these noise levels, while maintaining overall system performance, has become the driving issue in new nozzle designs. This proposal will focus on nozzle designs of practical application that can be implemented on current high ...
