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.


    SBC: Badillo Engineering, LLC            Topic: 08c

    State of the art modern gasoline drivetrains have seen improvements in fuel economy thru common methods that include increased static compression ratios, Direct injection, reduced pumping work thru variable cam timing, improved Knock Sensing approaches, engine downsizing, variable displacement, increased transmission gear ratios, & amp; lower numerical axle ratios. Unfortunately, fuel economy ...

  2. Capability of Rolling Efficiency for 100M High-Speed Rails

    SBC: OG Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 02b

    Development of high-speed rail services in the US is one of the priorities of the current administration. High-speed rails have the potential to change the nations energy consumption landscape in transportation at a time when both the highway and railroad capacities are being saturated with increased demand. In preparation to expand the transportation infrastructure for the coming decades, railro ...

  4. HPC Modeling to Aid Accelerator Component Manufacturing

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 02a

    Electromagnetic and particle modeling is an important part of the design and manufacturing of accelerator components, such as electron beam sources and RF accelerating cavities. The premier electromagnetic and particle modeling tools today allow users to exploit parallel computing resources, both distributed memory CPU and multi-threaded GPU. However, these premier parallel modeling ...

  5. Development of a High-brightness Field-Emission Superconducting RF Gun

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Field emission cathodes are well known in the field of electron microscopy and extensively used because their very small source size (e.g.: sharpened end of a needle) can lead to very high- brightness electron beams. Recently, important developments in field-emission arrays have made them a viable option for the generation of high-quality beams with improved current as compared to a single tip ...

  6. Development of a Superconducting RF Harmonic Cavity for eRHIC

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 41a

    In the proposed collider eRHIC, hadrons from one of the RHIC storage rings will interact with electrons accelerated in a six-pass energy recovery linac (ERL). The maximum energy of protons will be 250 GeV and the maximum energy of electrons will be 30 GeV. The machine will heavily rely on SRF technology. One accelerator physics issue being considered in the design is that the nonlinearities of ...

  7. Antenna Design in the Plasma Environment Using Coupled CEM and CFD Modeling

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: MDA12010

    A coupled CEM and CFD modeling is proposed for prediction of antenna performance in plasma environment with particular application to reentry vehicles. The degree of coupling between the fluid dynamics and the electromagnetics will be investigated as well as identification of the parameters that relate the two modeling processes. End product is a hybrid computational tool with a complete GUI that ...

  10. Piezocrystal Gyroid Transducer

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: N122142

    We propose the design and development of a novel gyroid transducer comprised of piezocrystal ring elements. The Phase I effort covers the modeling and demonstration of the gyroid transducer and comparison of performance with several piezocrystal and piezoceramic materials. The electroacoustic performance will be estimated for several designs and a prototype element will be built and laboratory tes ...
