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

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19a

    Obsolescence, aging, reliability, and performance issues are driving nuclear facilities to replace conventional analog I & amp;C systems with digital technologies. The increased complexity of digital systems, compared to their analog counterparts, has resulted in faults that are often more difficult to detect, classify, and correct. Experience in the nuclear industry has shown that tradition ...

  2. Condition Monitoring of Live Cables in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19e

    No method currently exists for detecting intermittent faults in nuclear power plant cable circuits, which include circuit components, connectors, and end devices. Conventional techniques can locate hard faults, such as open or short circuits, but not the intermittent faults that occur occasionally. Furthermore, conventional testing techniques require circuits to be removed from serv ...

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

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 14c

    In the U.S., almost all the 104 operating commercial nuclear power plants have applied or plan to apply for license renewal, many of which have recently received approval. This has given rise to questions about the aging of structures, systems, and components (SSCs) that are important to plant safety and longevity. Recently, many national laboratories and agencies, including the Nuclear Regulat ...

  4. Modular Planar Germanium Detector Systems for High Resolution Gamma-ray Spectroscopy and Tracking Arrays

    SBC: Phds Co.            Topic: 42b

    The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics maintains gamma-ray detector arrays as user facilities. The Modular Planar Germanium (MPGe) detector systems to be developed here will provide a lower cost, higher resolution, basis for such detector arrays. The MPGe detector systems will be experimentally developed by understanding the radiation-damage limitations of these detector systems, ...

  5. GaAsSb/AlGaAsP Superlattice Polarized Electron Source

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 41e

    The negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes which produce polarized electrons are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) and DoE Jefferson Lab. Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than produced by strained GaAs, which is us ...

  6. Online Monitoring in Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are one of the most compelling options for meeting the growing clean energy demands of the U.S. While safer and costing less to build and operate than their conventional counterparts, the unique requirements of SMRs pose significant challenges to the maintenance of their I & amp;C systems, especially due to the likelihood of fewer process sensors. Lacking the se ...

  7. Advanced Diagnostics for the Control Element Drive Mechanism System in Pressurized Water Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    A light water reactor is equipped with control and shutdown rods which are inserted into and withdrawn from the reactor core to control reactivity. The positioning of the control and shutdown rods is performed in Combustion Engineering designed plants with the control element drive mechanism system, which includes a number of subsystems and components critical to safe and reliable plant operatio ...

  8. Real-Time Size-Distributed Measurement of Aerosol Mass Concentration

    SBC: MSP CORPORATION            Topic: 03e

    In atmospheric aerosol research, size-distributed aerosol samples are often collected with airborne instrumentation, but are not analyzed in any manner until after they are brought to a laboratory on the ground. The information thus obtained is averaged for all the locations covered during the mission. A novel technology is being developed in this project to constantly measure the size-distributed ...

  10. Orion: Ballistic Missile Defense Asset Positioning System

    SBC: Primordial, Inc.            Topic: MDA12001

    In ballistic missile defense (BMD), sensor placement and sensor-to-target assignment are daunting tasks; even one missed threat has devastating consequences. The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) seeks innovative algorithms for sensor coordination that recommend placement and response options in near-real time to provide maximum coverage against multiple BMD threats using a minimum number of land and s ...
