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. Coaxial Energetic Ion Depostition of Superconducting Coatings on Copper RF Cavities for Particle Accelerators

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: 15a

    75521S Radio frequency (RF) cavities are a key component in particle accelerators for fundamental high-energy physics research and medical applications. To enhance their capabilities, niobium-coated superconducting copper cavities have shown promise for supporting higher electric field gradients when compared to non-superconducting designs. However, a satisfactory coating method has not been de ...

  2. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the current return rods in the anode of the plasma radiation source (PRS) load, with an annular, supersonic gas jet: an innovation that could drastically reduce source region debris along the line-of-sight (LOS) of the test object, in a z-pinch, soft x-ray, weapons effects simulator, and make the debris mitigation system (DMS) simpler ...

  3. High Temperature, Superconducting, Thinfilm Coatings for RF Accelerator Cavities

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: 45a

    78840S05 Superconducting radio frequency (RF) accelerator cavities are traditionally constructed from pure Niobium metal. However, niobium is expensive and difficult to manufacture, leading to increased material and fabrication costs. Compounding the cost problem is the fact that the majority of the superconductor is wasted because the majority of the material is used to meet the mechanical stre ...

  4. Cannula System for "Bridge to Recovery" Cardiac Assist

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac failure is the, largest single cause of mortality in the United States today. With an increase in the use of long-term cardiac assist devices, there is also a need for the short-term "bridge to recovery" application. This application is intended to provide a low-cost temporary support for patients whose heart is capable of recovering. This "patient scr ...

  5. Error Reduction in Dipole-Source Localization Models

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We are developing means to reduce errors in Dipole Source Localization (DSL). DSL is commonly used to analyze brain waves for clinical and research purposes. It is known from our work and the work of others that the models used to compute the DSL are not perfect, but it is not known how much the imperfect models affect the solutions obtained. Based upon our ...

  8. Smart Joint system for in-situ monitoring of buildings

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: HS052005

    Acellent Technologies proposes to develop a smart joint structural health monitoring (SHM) sensor network that can autonomously assess in real time the structural stability of structures such as buildings. The sensor network will use a combination of large and small piezoelectric actuators and sensors to characterize damage in, and monitor the rigidity of components of the building primary structu ...

  9. Embedded control of an Active Structural Integrity Monitoring System using interlaced PZT and Thin-Film Transistors

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB042035

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is increasingly being evaluated by the industry as a possible method to improve the safety and reliability of structures and thereby reduce operational cost. However, the scalability and applicability of SHM systems for the monitoring of large structures is still a challenge. The goal of the proposed effort is to develop the capability for enhanced in-situ struct ...

  10. Structural Health Monitoring System for Rocket Motor Cases

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA04041

    Composite rocket motor cases are subject to a variety of external environmental and loading conditions from the time-of-manufacturing till usage. These conditions can significantly impact the performance and behavior characteristics of the composite motorcase structure. Fueling of the rocket motor adds an additional complexity in that inspection of the interior becomes impossible while creating th ...
