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. Decontamination of Flower Bulbs using Atmospheric Plasma

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    "The United States floriculture industry reached a total of $5.6 billion in domestic consumption in 2002 with an additional $111 million in exports. As the industry continues to move towards mechanized harvesting in order to increase production, the potential for bulb injury and resulting fungal infection has increased, as well. Current chemical methods to reduce fungal infection are often costly, ...

  3. Wireless Sensors for Equipment Health and Condition Monitoring in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 24

    Wireless sensors are becoming very popular in industrial processes for process measurement and control, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, and management of accidents and mishaps. Over the next few years, these wireless sensors are targeted for full implementation in nuclear power plants, for equipment health and condition monitoring applications. However, to date, little work has bee ...

  4. On-Line Monitoring of Accuracy and Reliability of Instrumentation and Health of Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 27

    The nuclear power industry continues to depend largely on hands-on antiquated methods for maintenance of its equipment, for plant-aging management, and for health monitoring. As such, advanced maintenance technologies are needed for current and next generation nuclear power plants. This project will develop technology to establish the accuracy and reliability of nuclear power plant instrumentati ...

  5. Distribution System State Estimation

    SBC: Enernex Corporation            Topic: 05

    Effective management of electricity distribution systems requires analysis tools that can estimate the state of the system (the operating condition). Although state estimation algorithms recently have arisen from research activities, they have yet to be adopted in practice. Utilities need an easier way to implement these new algorithms, along with tools that can pull together all the data needed ...

  6. Contextual Spelling Suggestions Based on Specialized Vocabulary and Statistical Information of Historical System Usage

    SBC: Information International Associates, Inc.            Topic: 41

    Today¿s general purpose search engines have developed contextual based spelling/search suggestion software tools that are derived from the historical usage of the system. In other words, every search the system performs is stored and used as the basis of a statistical algorithm that locates contextual errors in a search. In the past several years, research analysts have identified a new tier of ...

  7. Automated Data Cleansing in Data Harvesting and Data Migration

    SBC: Information International Associates, Inc.            Topic: 41

    In the explosion of digitized information that is available through corporate databases, data stores, and online search systems, a persistent problem is the management of the sheer volume of information identified. This information comes in the form of unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data. One of the key issues that exacerbate this information overload is the production of duplicat ...

  8. Use of Domain/IP Resolver in Lieu of Traditional Username/Password Authentication

    SBC: Information International Associates, Inc.            Topic: 41

    DOE currently operates an International Databases for sixteen countries. Currently, access is controlled by checking the IP address and/or username/password of registered users. Some countries would like to permit any citizen in their country to access the data, while other countries would like to restrict access to a set of specific registered citizens. This project will develop technology for ...

  9. Development of an Automated Tool for Locating, Harvesting and Storing Experimental Scientific and Technical Data

    SBC: Information International Associates, Inc.            Topic: 41a

    Today, scientific and technical data are being generated at ever-increasing rates. At the same time, finding these data is becoming more difficult, as they are now often being deposited directly onto the Web without being linked to a specific publication. Even when a potential data source is located, present day search engines are not able to decode the content of the data source or to determine ...

  10. Development of High Speed Multispectral Imaging for Sorting Automotive Plastics

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: 29

    Each year, about 15 million vehicles are discarded and processed by recycling companies for extraction of recyclable materials. While almost all metals are recycled, most non-metallic components of the vehicle (approximately 25% by weight) are not, and are landfilled instead. Therefore, methods and technologies are needed to enable the recycling of these non-metal materials, especially automobil ...
