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 worldwide. Diabetes care accounts for 10% of all U.S. healthcare costs, most of which is consumed in the care of complications from diabetes, but also includes lost economic productivity from illness, disability and blindness. Despite the high incidence of diabetes, low health literacy and limited access to health care resources keeps famili ...

  2. Novel and Improved Methods for Extracting Colorants from Indigo and Black Walnut

    SBC: BELLOS, SARAH            Topic: 812

    The market for natural colorants is growing. Trends in food, cosmetics, and textiles show consumers are concerned over the use of synthetic, petroleum-derived dyes and seek a more environmentally friendly option. However, manufacturers cannot compromise on quality, stability, or functionality of colorants in their products. Natural colorants, including from plants, have been used as dyes for thous ...

  3. Quantitative Methods for Reliability and Fault Tolerance Testing of Digital Instrumentation and Control

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19a

    Obsolescence, aging, reliability, and performance issues are driving nuclear facilities to replace conventional analog I & amp;C systems with digital technologies. The increased complexity of digital systems, compared to their analog counterparts, has resulted in faults that are often more difficult to detect, classify, and correct. Experience in the nuclear industry has shown that tradition ...

  4. Condition Monitoring of Live Cables in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 19e

    No method currently exists for detecting intermittent faults in nuclear power plant cable circuits, which include circuit components, connectors, and end devices. Conventional techniques can locate hard faults, such as open or short circuits, but not the intermittent faults that occur occasionally. Furthermore, conventional testing techniques require circuits to be removed from serv ...

  5. Development of an In-Situ Method for Cable Condition Monitoring in Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 14c

    In the U.S., almost all the 104 operating commercial nuclear power plants have applied or plan to apply for license renewal, many of which have recently received approval. This has given rise to questions about the aging of structures, systems, and components (SSCs) that are important to plant safety and longevity. Recently, many national laboratories and agencies, including the Nuclear Regulat ...

  6. Modular Planar Germanium Detector Systems for High Resolution Gamma-ray Spectroscopy and Tracking Arrays

    SBC: Phds Co.            Topic: 42b

    The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics maintains gamma-ray detector arrays as user facilities. The Modular Planar Germanium (MPGe) detector systems to be developed here will provide a lower cost, higher resolution, basis for such detector arrays. The MPGe detector systems will be experimentally developed by understanding the radiation-damage limitations of these detector systems, ...

  7. Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector Arrays for Neutron Scattering Measurements

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    The objective of this project is to design and build a high-efficiency neutron detector array consisting of 3000 pixels, with each pixel being 100 microns wide and 4 cm tall, all based on the microstructured semiconductor neutron detector (MSND) technology. The MSND technology resulted in over 40 publications, three allowed patents, one patent pending, and recently received an R & amp;D 100 aw ...

  8. Field-Assembled Component-Based Rotor Blades

    SBC: Wetzel Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    Wetzel Engineering, Inc., proposes research and development to engineer very large wind turbine rotor blades for land-based machines that avoid expensive and logistically challenging transportation requirements. The proposed solution combines two technologies: Sectional component-based assembly of large wind turbine rotor blades ( & gt;65m length) using design approaches adapted from aerospac ...

  9. Online Monitoring in Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are one of the most compelling options for meeting the growing clean energy demands of the U.S. While safer and costing less to build and operate than their conventional counterparts, the unique requirements of SMRs pose significant challenges to the maintenance of their I & amp;C systems, especially due to the likelihood of fewer process sensors. Lacking the se ...

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

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 21a

    A light water reactor is equipped with control and shutdown rods which are inserted into and withdrawn from the reactor core to control reactivity. The positioning of the control and shutdown rods is performed in Combustion Engineering designed plants with the control element drive mechanism system, which includes a number of subsystems and components critical to safe and reliable plant operatio ...
