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. Supporting Multi-Physics Workflows for Particle Accelerator Simulations

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    As high energy physics accelerator systems grow more complex, and the technological challenges greater, the DOE HEP program seeks to develop advanced technologies that can be used to reduce the overall system cost, and to develop new concepts and capabilities to further scientific and commercial needs. One promising approach is to use sophisticated computer modeling and simulation tools, which are ...

  2. Second Generation Superconducting Cable with Exfoliated YBCO Filaments

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: 29a

    High temperature superconducting YBCO wire technology has a significant potential to become the wire of choice for Helium-free magnet systems. Helium-free magnet systems are attracting more interest as the world supply of Helium is depleted. Currently the wire is manufactured as a thin, 1 micron, superconducting layer deposited on a 1 cm wide 100 microns thick metal substrate. Due to ...

  4. Improvements to Cryogenic Detector Readout Systems

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 31f

    This SBIR project is to improve the readout system used for cryogenic detector arrays. A frequency multiplexed scheme call fMUX is one of the prevalent methods, which is used to read out the response of cryogenic detectors, such as Transition Edge Sensors TES) Bolometers, operating at mK temperatures used for astrophysical observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background CMB). The electronics for t ...

  5. SpectroCCD X-ray Camera for energy dispersive spectrometers

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 03d

    Worldwide there are a number of synchrotron beamlines dedicated to resonant soft x-ray inelastic scattering. There are also new beamlines currently being designed to take advantage of improved third generation synchrotron radiation sources and this powerful experimental technique for probing electronic structure. These beamlines utilize energy dispersive spectrometers and share a common need for a ...

  7. Bro-Intelligent Load Balancer Towards Terabit-Scale Cyber Security

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: 39d

    According to a 2013 report published by FireEye, on average it took 229 days between the breach of a computer system and the detection of said breach. In order to effectively mitigate these breaches, traditional corporate border security needs to transition to a defense in depth cyber security posture. As networks get faster, such as the DOE ESNet and corporate datacenters such as Target and The H ...

  8. Diamond beam flux, timing and position monitors for synchrotron radiation facilities

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 09a

    The effectiveness of synchrotron radiation science has been hindered by the limited availability of advanced diagnostics. In many cases, the capability to produce photon fluxes has outpaced the ability to detect and measure the resultant photons. Synchrotron applications are becoming more demanding as beamlines are being designed with brighter sources, smaller focal spots, and wider energy ranges ...

  9. Transmission Incipient Detection & Fault Location- TID&FL

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    In order to optimize the operating efficiency of transmission systems utilities must be able to quickly restore service after a failure. Locating faults with current technologies can be a time consuming, skill and labor intensive process. Underground transmission systems are hidden from view and fault location can take sometimes days or weeks. Detecting and locating incipient faults prior to fail ...

  10. Web-Based Computational Model Builder for Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 19d

    According to the World Nuclear Association, the U.S. is the largest producer of nuclear power worldwide. In fact, the U.S. provides over 30 percent of the worlds nuclear generation of electricity. Although few new reactors have been built in the past 30 years, the association anticipates that four to six reactors may be built by 2020. The first of the reactors will be built in response to 16 licen ...
