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. Metadata assisted Management of Diabetes in Rural Health Disparity Communities


    Diabetes is an epidemic disease in the United States and accounts for 15% of all US healthcare costs. The rural Mississippi Delta region is statistically at the epicenter of the negative trends in the health and has the highest prevalence of diabetes and obesity in the nation. Low health literacy and limited access to healthcare resources are critical socioeconomic barriers to those patients at th ...

  2. Innovative high-airflow smokehouse design with novel method of controlling airflow to cook faster&to reduce temperature&color variation

    SBC: HANSON, ROBERT            Topic: 85

    Industrial smokehouses are large forced-air convection batch ovens used to cook and smoke meat products such as bacon, ham, bologna, whole turkeys, chicken breast, snack sticks, jerky, smoked sausage, hotdogs, sliced luncheon meats, and other smoked meats. These huge smokehouses are crucial to the operation of the American meat industry, yet in the past two decades, the design of these ovens has s ...

  3. Phosphorus removal from ethanol thin stillage to produce a low phosphorus livestock feed and a valuable granular fertilizer.


    Grain ethanol production byproducts or ?coproducts? are commonly used in modern beef finishing rations. The term distillers grains (DGS) is intended to include these and similar coproducts. The expansion of the ethanol industry has led to the wide spread availability and economic pricing of DGS, resulting in significant amounts of DGS being commonly included in beef finishing rations. The fermenta ...

  4. Rod Control System On-Line Condition Monitoring and Advanced Diagnostics for Existing and Next Generation Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 58a

    Aging and obsolescence issues have recently led to problems with the rod control systems of existing pressurized water reactors. These issues, along with plans for plant life extension, have prompted the industry to actively seek viable options to monitor the health of these systems in order to ensure reliable plant operation for decades to come. This proposed work offers a comprehensive research ...

  5. Advanced Diagnostics for the Control Element Drive Mechanism System in Pressurized Water Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    Current designs of Light Water Reactors (LWR) are equipped with control and shutdown rods that are inserted and withdrawn from the reactor core for reactivity control. In particular, the Control Element Drive Mechanism (CEDM) system is widely used for regulating plant power levels and core power distribution in the existing and next generation of Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs). This system incl ...

  6. Dynamically Controlled Electric Demand Management System

    SBC: Enhanced Systems Consulting, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    The variation between peak and off-peak electricity demand fluctuates up to 70 percent over the course of a 24 hour cycle. This degree of variability is a driver for costly inefficiencies within the power gridto prevent blackouts and meet customer demandas well as power sell offs to consume excess generation available during off-peak hours. Projections estimate the power demand to double by 2050 r ...

  7. Characterization and Application of a Novel Neutron Detection Method to Replace Helium-3 in Advanced Neutron Detectors.

    SBC: Ordela, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Large area neutron detectors with high efficiency, high resolution, high count-rate capability, and fast timing capabilities are required to meet the specific neutron diffraction and imaging needs of the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Due to the current shortage of helium-3, recently developed and existing commercial gas detectors using helium-3 as a neutron ...

  8. Thin-Window P-Type Point-Contact Germanium Detectors for Rare Particle Detection 45c

    SBC: Phds Co.            Topic: 45c

    DOE Nuclear Physics low-background rare-particle detection arrays require germanium detectors having the minimum possible background and maximum sensitivity. Larger p-type point-contact germanium detectors having better performance are being experimentally developed through collaboration with DOE low-background researchers. Semiconductor-detector fabrication improvements and electronic-discrimina ...

  9. Online Monitoring in Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    Small modular reactors (SMRs) are at the forefront of the nuclear industrys options for deployment of new reactors to meet the growing electricity needs of the world. However, the designs of SMR plants are not yet far along enough to know the type and number of instruments that will be included in each design other than tentative statements by potential suppliers that they plan to use existing ins ...

  10. Thermographic Phosphors in Improved Thermal Management of Fossil Fuel Power Plants

    SBC: EMCO INC.            Topic: 14c

    Operating fossil fuel power plants at maximum efficiency requires high temperature measurements with sufficient accuracy to allow operation at optimum temperatures. Even a few degrees can reduce plant efficiency significantly. To operate with minimum downtime requires temperature measurement with sensors that have stable characteristics, not requiring frequent calibration. Thermographic phosphor t ...
