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. Development of a Three-Dimensional, Finite Element Charged Particle Code with Adaptive Meshing

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60459 The current generation of charged particle codes are unable to model practical three dimensional problems, such as those in high energy physics research, because of the large number of nodes required in the analysis. Without this design capability, it is not possible to develop many new, innovative devices that could dramatically advance the state-of-the-art in charged particle electro ...

  2. Vacuum Pump Power Supply with Controller Integrated Circuit

    SBC: Champion Research            Topic: N/A

    60768 Present technology vacuum pump power supplies do not provide the features needed for the Next Linear Collider (NLC). Most are located some distance from the pumps themselves, requiring high voltage distribution cables that can break down electrically due to radiation induced damage and cause fires. Those power supplies that do mount on pumps do not have serial control or adequately pr ...

  3. Development of a Sustained Ocean Current-Driven Electric Power Generating System

    SBC: DEHLSEN ASSOCIATES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    60119 Swiftly flowing ocean currents represent a significant untapped renewable energy resource for the United States. However, ocean current energy systems have not been economically feasible due to: (1) the difficulty of maintaining system stability while concurrently being able to quickly relocate the system to maximize power generation efficiency as current speeds change at varying d ...

  4. Conversion of Wet Biomass to Hydrogen by Unmixed Reforming

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Wet biomass is a potentially valuable energy resource but it cannot be shipped economically. If wet biomass could be converted to hydrogen, the hydrogen could be used in fuel cells to provide electricity and space heating to farms and other rural facilities. However, the only presently available technology for this conversion, steam reforming, is not economical for small installations. This pro ...

  5. Ultra Low Cost, Long Life, driver TWTA's for Future Accelerator Injection Systems

    SBC: ELCON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60224 A family of traveling wave tubes (TWT), capable of outliving a 20-year accelerator, are being mated to power supplies to produce drive power for klystrons for the Next Linear Collider, at about one-tenth the cost of available commercial amplifiers. This project will develop S, X, and C-band TWTs with full specification performance. Low current, long-life cathodes will be evaluated fo ...

  6. Multivariate State Estimation Technique (MSET) Modeling for Assured Measurement Integrity

    SBC: EXPERT MICROSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60387 Assuring the safe, reliable, and efficient operation of a nuclear power plant requires that accurate, online measurement information be available to operators. In this project, an innovative process modeling technique will be used to detect sensor and equipment failures with higher accuracy and faster response time than previously available methods, thereby improving efficiency, reduc ...

  7. The Closed-Loop, Amplifier-Regulated Driver, a High-Accuracy, Low-Cost Modulator for Heavy Ion Fusion Accelerators

    SBC: FIRST POINT SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60247 An inexpensive, highly regulated modulator will be required for the successful development of a heavy ion inertial fusion system. This project will demonstrate a closed-loop, amplifier-regulated driver as an induction accelerator modulator at parameters of interest to the heavy ion fusion program. Phase I demonstrated the efficacy of the closed-loop amplifier regulated driver, det ...

  8. Advanced Computtation Environment for Incompressible Flows with Free Surface, MHD and Turbulence Effects in Complex Geometries

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60419 This project will develop a three dimensional, adaptive, unstructured grid treatment of free surface magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of conducting liquids, as envisioned in future fusion systems. In particular, computational fluid dynamic (CFD) tools, capable of predicting the flow behavior of conducting liquids in complex geometry with free surfaces in the presence of an intense heat ...

  9. Intelligent Unmanned Monitoring of Remediated Sites

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    61066 Hazardous waste characterization, remediation, and monitoring are key missions for DOE. Conventional approaches involve cumbersome sample collection and laboratory analysis. This is time intensive and very costly, in part because of the need for experts. Crucial long-term, continuous monitoring of sites to insure that wastes do not migrate is not currently feasible. This project will ...

  10. Real-Time Adaptive Control Scheme for Superior Plasma Confinement

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    61063 The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) seeks intelligent automated tuning software to improve control and functionality of plasma fusion reactors. Currently installed tokamak control systems typically fail to make use of the full potential of available equipment. These systems often require significant operator intervention to tune control action between discharges. This project will de ...
