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. Wave Energy Converter Performance- and Cost Optimization Through Novel Controls Strategies

    SBC: Columbia Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    The US Department of Energy (DOE) has reported that the wave energy resource available in the US has the potential to power over 100 million homes each year, and the DOE is currently developing an aggressive strategy to support its vision of providing 15% of our nations electricity needs from water power by 2030. However, in addition to survivability and impact issues, producing cost-competitive e ...

  2. Silicon Carbide Quasi-Bipolar Junction Transistor (QBJT)-Based boost converter platform for up-tower wind applications

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 10b

    SiC power electronics are ideally suited for reducing the size and weight of power electronics systems that are used in wind power converters. Present power electronics systems require large transformers which operate a modest frequencies that prevents their use on top of the turbine tower. The electrical parasitics introduced by the interconnections between wind turbine and power conversion elect ...

  3. Multi-flux fiber optic probe of nuclear fuel performance

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 19a

    Current commercial reactor fuel performance monitoring uses external power range monitors, and evaluates coolant water for contamination that would indicate failure of a fuel element. Estimates of the localized fission rates and temperature distributions within the reactor core are approximated using nuclear simulation codes. Real-time characterization of local in-core radiation field parameters w ...

  4. Rapid Manufacturing Method for High-Temperature Turbine Components

    SBC: Mikro Systems, Inc.            Topic: 15b

    Mikro Systems, Inc (Mikro) has a breakthrough manufacturing technology that can dramatically reduce the time and cost of designing, prototyping, and testing advanced high-temperature turbine components. The gas turbine industry needs rapid and cost effective prototyping methods to produce advanced high- temperature parts from application specific materials that can be used in hot test rigs and tes ...

  5. Cryogenically Flexible, Low Permeability Thoraeus Rubber H2 Dispenser Hose

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 06a

    NanoSonic has recently developed high strength-to-weight ratio Thoraeus Rubber composites that maintain radiation resistance and EMI shielding upon severe and repeated mechanicals strains. This state-of-the-art, flexible shielding material was designed as a bladder for space-based enclosures that required ultra-low air permeability, radiation tolerance, resistance to hydrogen (H2) embrittlement ...

  6. 10MHz, 10k-Pixel Fast Fiber-Coupled Imaging Devices for Plasma Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPERV TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 28a

    High speed imaging of plasmas is limited to relatively short record lengths and is very expensive. Portions of the tradeoff space where slightly reduced spatial resolution allows gains in record length and reduced costs are poorly explored. HyperV Technologies Corp. proposes to construct a 100 pixel fiber coupled streak camera as a proof of concept towards an eventual goal of constructing a 100 ...

  7. Radiation resistant magnetic field sensor

    SBC: Microxact, Inc.            Topic: 42f

    All high power target facilities and accelerators, especially the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), require magnetic field sensors to measure magnetic fields in various magnets employed at these facilities as well as in cyclotrons. The currently used and/or commercially available sensors show only limited radiation resistance and in general require replacement every 3-4 months, resulting in, ...

  8. System Modeling and Digital Analysis Ecosystem (SMDAE)

    SBC: Nimbis Services, Inc.            Topic: 02a

    Foundational studies of desktop-bound technical computing users, referred to as the missing-middle of the high performance computing (HPC) market, have identified the lack of simple software, limited access to technical talent, and difficulty in estimating the return on investment (ROI) as critical challenges in the adoption of HPC among small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The complexity a ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Biological CO2 Fixation for the Production of Formic Acid Powered by Sugars

    SBC: Gate Fuels Incorporated            Topic: 12a

    Formic acid (FA, CH2O2) is the simplest carboxylic acid. It is mainly used as a preservative and antibacterial agent in livestock feed. A significant fraction of FA is used in the leather-processing, textile and rubber industries and a small fraction of formic acid is used as a cleaning agent replacing mineral acids. Aqueous FA is a promising liquid hydrogen-storage carrier with a hydrogen storage ...
