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 In-Situ TEM Nanotribology Tester

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 13

    Instead of being sent to flare which contributes to energy loses and greenhouse gas emissions, many refinery off-gases could be converted into valuable chemicals such as hydrogen. However, the refinery off-gases contain large concentrations of sulfur that must be removed to prevent the poisoning of the nickel-based steam reforming catalyst used in hydrogen production. Traditionally, deep desulfuri ...

  2. Quantitative In-Situ TEM Tensile Testing Apparatus

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 13

    The Department of Energy supports collaborative research centers for electron beam microcharacterization of materials. Within these facilities, in situ transmission-electron-microscopy (TEM) tensile testing has been a powerful tool for revealing underlying physical mechanisms when materials are subjected to stress. However, all commercial in situ TEM tensile holders suffer from the absence of qu ...

  3. Intelligently Vibrating Dewatering Machinery

    SBC: QRDC, INC.            Topic: 21

    Physical separation technologies use a tremendous amount of energy in the processing industries. In particular, vibrating machines are used for dewatering, screening, sizing, mixing, compacting, and conveying. Although vibrating machines are not the single most energy intensive step in a processing plant, they are often a major bottleneck in the process, and improvements would offer tremendous p ...

  4. Wind Energy Reliability and Cost Reduction:Wind Turbine Health Monitoring Systems

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: 04

    Wind energy has numerous benefits as a power source, including price stability, lack of greenhouse gas emissions, revitalization of rural areas, and lack of dependence on imported fuels. As wind increases its penetration into the US power market, it is imperative to minimize costs and maximize reliability, so that it can compete fully with traditional power sources. The primary recurring cost of ...

  5. High Polarization and High Peak Current Compositionally Graded AlGaAs/GaAs Superlattice Photocathodes for RF Gun Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 30d

    Negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes, which produce polarized electrons, are a vital component of current electron accelerators. However, future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require significant upgrades to these photocathodes. For example, the polarized electron beam intensity will need to be at least 20 times greater than that produced by strained GaA ...

  6. High Polarization and High Robustness Antimonide Based Superlattice Photocathodes for RF Gun Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 30d

    Negative-electron-affinity photocathodes, which produce polarized electrons, are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider, will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than produced by strained GaAs, which is used in the current generation of photocatho ...

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

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 49

    For most commercial applications ¿ such as flame and arc sensing, air and water purification, and combustion monitoring ¿ the requirements for ultraviolet (UV) light detection are adequately provided by commercially available GaN-based photodiodes. However, many UV photon-counting and imaging applications ¿ including Cherenkov light detection, space-borne astronomy, and UV spectroscopy ...

  8. Cyber Craft System Scaling

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: OSD06IA5

    Many technical challenges will need to be surmounted to create practical cybercraft: assurance, control, rules of engagement, representation and discovery of the target environment, among others. However a serious challenge lurks behind all of these: scaling solutions to fleets of up to a million craft. New approaches are needed to deploy and control the craft at this scale. Failure to come to gr ...

  9. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    Due to the phasing out of TNT usage in explosives due to safety and environmental concerns, insensitive explosives utilizing wax binders instead of TNT have gradually replaced TNT in bombs and other explosive shells. The wax material that has been the most utilized in this application has been carnauba wax, but due to its non-domestic production and its dependence on natural growth and harvest me ...

  10. Steganography for Tamper-Resistant Software (STARS)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: OSD06I13

    The DoD has valuable and sensitive software which it must protect from use, exploitation, or attack by other countries or organizations. Anti-tamper technologies protect these assets by increasing the costs associated with extracting this information by enemy forces. A variety of techniques have been and are being developed to address specific aspects of anti-tamper protection. These techniques fr ...
