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. High Efficiency Klystrons for Accelerator Applications

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 24d

    Klystrons are the most commonly used RF sources for high energy accelerators. Their efficiency significantly impacts the acquisition and operating cost of accelerator systems. Higher efficiency RF sources are required to reduce the cost for future accelerators and colliders. Calabazas Creek Research Inc., in collaboration with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, is developing a method for optimi ...

  2. Long-range Millimeter Wave Passive Tags

    SBC: DIRAC Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    This SBIR develops novel long-range passive Electromagnetic (EM) tags based on high-frequency microwaves, down to the millimeter wave regime. EM waves can go through fabrics, plastics, wood, and other occlusions for addressing covert target tracking. These higher frequency bands have many of the best features of the radio and the optical wavelengths, such as the ability to create focused beams to ...

  3. Robust Kr-85 Detectors for New Waste Cask Design

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Dry cask storage systems (DCSS) are used to store spent nuclear fuel from nuclear power plants. Without a long term storage solution in place, storage for decades in casks may be required. High burnup fuel rods may become brittle over time presenting problems for eventual transport of the spent fuel from reactor sites to a central storage facility. It is desired to passively determine the structur ...

  4. NDT System for Metal Components in Concrete Structures

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 32e

    Improved NDT (non-destructive testing) techniques are needed for inspection of concrete structures in nuclear power plants. Steel reinforcements embedded within concrete can corrode and crack, leading to weakening of the structures, and existing NDT techniques do not provide the full picture. Condition assessment is critical in evaluating these structures in order to ensure safe, long-term operati ...

  5. Low-Cost Energy Recovery Ventilator Incorporating a High Flux Moisture-Permeable Membrane

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: 10c

    Substantial improvements to the integrity of residential building envelopes have been realized in recent years with the use of advanced house wraps, fenestration, and air sealing technologies. While tight construction significantly lowers residential energy consumption, the concomitant reduction in natural ventilation results in less frequent air turnover that can adversely impact indoor air quali ...

  6. Single Step and Continuous Synthesis of Advanced Lithium Ion Positive Electrode Material Powders using UniMelt Microwave Plasma Process

    SBC: Amastan Technologies Inc            Topic: 14a

    For electric vehicles to be widely adopted as a common mode of transportation, the price of the battery packs must be reduced to $125 per kilowatt hour. Prices are currently around $200 per kilowatt our. One path to reduced cost per kilowatt hour is by reducing cathode cost and improving their energy density. Cathode materials account for up to 25% of the battery pack cost. Cost reductions can be ...

  7. Radiation spectrometer for RF breakdown detection in THz linear accelerators

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 27a

    The future of high energy particle physics and X-ray light sources for biological and material research require miniaturized linear accelerators that at present cannot be qualified using existing methods. Such miniaturized linear accelerates, operated in THz and mm-wave bands, will be instrumental in managing the cost of future accelerator facilities. One technological issue at these wavelengths i ...

  8. Utilization of waste CO2 to make renewable chemicals and fuels

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: 09a

    Utilization of waste carbon dioxide from industrial sources could (1) provide an additional income stream for CO2 emitting industries and (2) provide a distributed and domestic source of carbon-based compounds for use as chemicals and fuels. An efficient, cost-effective, and modular reactor for electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) to carbon-neutral or –negative compounds is needed to make th ...

  9. Novel Low-Cost Medical Accelerator Designs for Use in Challenging Environments

    SBC: TIBARAY, INC.            Topic: 02a

    The need for Radiation Therapy (RT) for cancer treatment is dramatically underserved in less developed parts both because of the high cost of RT systems and that such systems need reliable utilities. The company plans to use novel technology recently developed to manufacture and market the next generation of RT systems offering both greatly enhanced capabilities and more cost-effective patient tre ...

  10. High Energy-Density and Long Life-Time Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Conventional lithium-ion batteries demonstrate great potential for applications in electrical vehicles, but they face some major challenges such as low energy density and high cost. It is worthwhile to pursue alternative strategies to address the barriers of cost and energy density. We propose to develop advanced rechargeable lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries that have much higher theoretical energy ...
