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. Nickel Nanostrand Additives for Conductive Resins and Composites-Phase 2

    SBC: Conductive Composites Company, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    A new form of small diameter, high aspect ratio nickel, known as nickel nanostrands, has been created and evaluated. The unique material exhibits a complex geometry, small diameter, high aspect ratio and high conductivity. It appears to provide anexcellent nanostructured three dimensional conductive lattice in a polymer, or acts as an interconnecting conductive lattice in composites whose reinforc ...

  4. Hydroforming of Lightweight Aluminum and Magnesium Components from Tube-Development and Commercialization of a Novel Elevated Temperature Hydroforming System

    SBC: K. Wetzel & Company            Topic: N/A

    70075T02-II Significant fuel cost savings can be realized in the automotive and aerospace industries by employing lightweight materials in the design and fabrication of vehicular components. To date, the exploitation of lightweight magnesium and aluminum alloys in component fabrication has been restricted due to their limited formability at room temperatures in conventional metal stamping proc ...

  5. Advantages of Composite Space Frame Wind Turbine Towers for Smaller Farms, Greater Heights, and Increased Capacities

    SBC: Wasatch Valley Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    70465B02-II By definition, wind shear creates substantially higher winds at greater heights; therefore in many parts of the U.S., wind sites that are marginal at lower heights could become viable at greater heights. The additional reliability of these winds increases turbine utilization, enabling more economical energy production. However, the high cost of construction, shipment, and install ...

  8. Low-Cost Enamel Coatings on Stainless Steel Foils for Thin Film Photovoltaics

    SBC: Sommer Materials Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An inexpensive method to insulate the CIGS thin-film from the stainless steel substrate is needed to make monolithic production of lightweight CIGS-based photovoltaics feasible. This coating must allow good foil flexibility and exhibit high breakdownvoltages. The coating must also be compatible with the CIGS and metal substrate layers, both thermophysically and chemically. An inexpensive method ...

  9. Performance Based Support Model

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For several years, since Defense policies have promoted Performance Based Acquisition (PBA) instead of traditional Military Specification definition of requirements, logistic support teams have struggled with the realities of applying revolutionaryconcepts to fielded weapon systems. Historically when a part or assembly failed often, the government usually bought more identically configured items ...

    SBC: Thrombodyne Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Anticoagulation of blood is necessary for prevention of clotting and/or thromboembolism during cardiopulmonary bypass or other procedures that require extracorporeal circulation. Conventionally, anticoagulation is achieved by administering heparin and reversed by neutralizing heparin with protamine. Both of these procedures may have potential pathological conse ...
