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. Novel Photocatalytic Energy Converter for Nuclear Safeguards Applications

    SBC: KONARKA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 17

    75880-This project will develop a novel energy converter for nuclear safeguards applications related to the monitoring of spent nuclear fuels. As a tamper-resistant, internally generated power source for safeguards monitoring, it will enable the use of other mature technologies to be applied for the real-time tracking and monitoring of spent nuclear fuels. In Phase I, the main elements of a new ...

  2. Novel Approach Toward High Performance Energetic Rays Detection

    SBC: LUTRONICS            Topic: 37

    72853-Ultrafast (sub-nanosecond), ultrahigh spatial resolution (sub-micron), and highly efficient scintillator detectors are required for many time-resolved energetic photon imaging and detection applications. However, current scintillator screens only can achieve spatial resolutions in the range of tens microns, response times in the range from hundreds nanoseconds to tens microsecond, and poor ...

  3. Microwave Radiometer for Remote Temperature Measurement in Hostile Industrial Environments

    SBC: PROSENSING, INC.            Topic: 40

    75848 Remote temperature measurement in industrial heating applications is usually accomplished through the use of optical or infrared sensors. However, these sensors do not work effectively in applications that produce smoke or other particulate matter that obscures the object being heated. This project will develop a remote temperature sensing instrument using microwaves, which are not affect ...

  4. Multi-Gigabit OS Bypass System for Grid Computing

    SBC: SeaFire Micros, Inc.            Topic: 10

    76151-Upon transmitting or receiving messages, classical network interface cards generate an interrupt to the operating system kernel, and thus to the host processor, which must service the interrupt. However, as grid-based scientific computing within DOE networks approach 10 ¿ 40 Gigabits per second, this procedure could tie down the host processor with interrupt latency. Therefore, new oper ...

  5. Fabrication of Chemically Doped, High Upper Critical Field Magnesium Diboride Superconducting Wires

    SBC: Specialty Materials, Inc.            Topic: 2

    75187-Controlled chemical doping of magnesium diboride (MgB2) has been shown to substantially improve its superconducting properties to the levels required for high magnetic field applications, such as needed for fusion energy. However, the doping is difficult to accomplish through the usual route of solid state reaction and diffusion. Further, superconducting cables of MgB2 are difficult to fab ...

  6. Combined Source Micro Power Plants for Wireless Sensors

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 40

    76213-The intelligent control of residential and commercial heating, cooling, and lighting, as well as industrial processes, could save huge amounts of energy. Because information must be gathered from dispersed locations, small, easy to install, self-powered, wireless sensors will be needed to make the measurements. This project will develop micro power plants that scavenge microwatt levels of ...

  7. Multi-Organizational Knowledge Based Approach Research

    SBC: 10 BLADE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase 1 STTR project will determine the feasibility of using web services, based on standard SOAP/XML (HL-7) protocols, to exchange Emergency Medical Services (EMS) field data with disparate hospital information systems. It will build upon a pre-hospital software package called iRevive, which consists of a network of wireless, handheld computers linked ...

  8. Nano-Ceramic for Metabolic Stem Cell Engineering

    SBC: Angstrom Medica, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of this project is to develop a clinically and commercially viable tissue engineered bone construct using nanocrystalline ceramic scaffolds for proliferating and differentiating adipose-derived progenitor cells into cells of the osteogenic lineage. The use of a nanostructured hydroxyapatite (nano-HAP) scaffold offers several advantages for ...

  9. Engineering Myoblasts for Transplantation

    SBC: Biomedical Research Models, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary goals of stem cell biology are to develop practical cell-based tools: 1) to enhance the repair of damaged organs and tissues; and 2) as vehicles for gene therapy to introduce engineered genes to the body to either correct a genetic defect or to provide therapeutic molecules. The use of embryonic stem cells is both controversial and fraught wit ...

  10. New Model For Virus Induced Autoimmunity

    SBC: Biomedical Research Models, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this program is to validate a new animal model for virus-initiated autoimmunity using our colony of congenic Lew.IWR1 rats. Preliminary data demonstrate that this laboratory strain is susceptible to induction of autoimmune diabetes by a variety of methods including intraperitoneal injection of rat parvovirus (KRV), antibody depletion of regulat ...
