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. Automated Miniature Closed Loop Five Axes Stage with Manipulator/A Miniature Closed Loop Five Axes Stage

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 06

    The ages of men have been defined by the materials that make up the tools we use, from the ancient stone and iron ages to the modern nuclear and silicon ages. Over these ages, man’s knowledge has been built upon previous observations. The base of this materials knowledge is understanding the relationships between structure- processing-properties-performance. The top of this pyramid is systematic ...

  2. Hierarchical Zeolite Catalysts for Renewable Surfactant Chemicals Platform

    SBC: Sironix Renewables, LLC            Topic: 09

    Current catalytic routes to surfactants used in the $32 billion detergents industry are energy intensive and inefficient, with chemical processes that yield desired products with only 30-40% selectivity, giving poor detergency at high energy cost. There exists an opportunity to significantly reduce the energy intensity of laundry detergents production through the design of a hierarchical catalyst ...

  3. High Density Interconnects for the HL-LHC


    This proposal addresses a pressing need in the detector development community within experimental high energy physics (HEP). The HEP community has been involved in the development of highly segmented and miniaturized detection elements ever since silicon strip detectors were first invented in the late 1970s. Various experiments have employed silicon detectors in a variety of readout configurations ...

  4. "WANshielder – A Network Appliance for Cyber-Resilient ESnet Operation"


    The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is a high-speed computer network serving United States Department of Energy (DOE) scientists and their HPC collaborators worldwide. The ESnet is a multi- domain network over virtual circuits guaranteeing end-to-end data transfer performance and security on the network. This network structure built using VPN connections and IPSEC tunnels is very similar to milita ...

  5. Hyper emission green LEDs on lattice-matched metal substrates for advanced optical fiber networking

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 01b

    Low-cost and reliable plastic optical fibers (POFs) are rapidly gaining acceptance in advanced networking applications such as data center and building LAN wiring, video streaming for Internet-protocol television (IPTV), and for safety-critical functions from secure braking and suspension control in cars to flight control in avionics. Common polymers used to form the light medium in POFs show smal ...

  6. Carbon and energy capture from biogas for the production of biochemicals

    SBC: Sasya LLC            Topic: 11b

    In order to curb America’s dependence on petroleum and increase reliance on domestic, alternative sources of energy, there is a strong emphasis on using biogas. There is still a significant potential in developing biogas as a resource not only for energy, but also for chemicals. In this proposal, Sasya will demonstrate how biogas could be used to produce energy and chemicals. We propose a simple ...

  7. In Operando SPM: Variable Pressure and Temperature

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 07b

    Materials behavior is often dominated by highly localized phenomena, and the ability to probe those properties for engineering devices is critical. Often these devices are operating in environments with large differences in temperature and pressure: from the high vacuum and cold of space to the high temperature and high pressure inside a deep water oil well. Here, a transducer capable of measuring ...

  8. Resource Intelligent VPU Utilization Leading to an Effectively Threaded System (RIVULETS)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: A15102

    To improve performance of Army CFD codes on new HPC architectures using MIC co-processors, we propose the RIVULETS tool which uses hybrid algorithms and automatic tuning to decrease CFD run-time and improve numerical performance. Existing CFD codes are parallelized using MPI, a highly effective approach for distributed architectures with large quantities of system memory and relatively simple seri ...

  9. Patch-Man (Patch Creator, Distribution & Management System)


    System vulnerabilities are being actively exploited in DoD networks and pose a high risk to Army Information Systems (IS). The Army is seeking a patch management system capable of providing automated and continuous Information Assurance (IA) patches for fielded, tactical systems, while providing a remote capability for auditing and assessing system vulnerability. Architecture Technology Corp (ATCo ...

  10. Formal Synthesis and Verification Techniques for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: SIFT's Phase 2 Hy-CIRCA proposal builds on progress in Phase 1 to address the challenge of effectively, reliably, and safely tasking cooperating teams of autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPSs). SIFT's Playbook(tm) interface approach provides high-level, goal-based tasking for multi-agent autonomous missions. SIFT's Cooperative Intelligent Real-Time Control Architecture (CIRCA) automa ...
