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. Novel HSI Sensor

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 03a

    The Remote Detection Program within the Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and Development (DNN R&D) is tasked with developing new technical capabilities to improve the detection, identification, and characterization of special nuclear and radiological materials. In addition to the detection of new threats, the office must also meet nuclear test treaty monitoring obligations. Due ...

  2. Optimizing algae based polyurethanes for controlled biodegradation

    SBC: ALGENESIS CORPORATION            Topic: 08b

    Today approximately 7,000 million metric tons (MMt) of plastic waste has been generated, and only a few percentage of that had been recycled, with the vast majority accumulating in landfills, or worse in the natural environments like our oceans. If we continue at this same rate, there will be 96 billion tons of plastic waste accumulated on this planet by 2050; this has to change. Our goal is to de ...

  3. High pressure electron gun for electron beam welding and additive manufacturing

    SBC: U.S. Electron, LLC            Topic: 33h

    Advanced manufacturing is essential for the Department of Energy’s initiatives to improve nuclear energy’s cost, safety, and efficiency. Research and eventual deployment of small modular reactors, sodium cooled reactors, and molten salt integral safe reactors requires high quality welding of high temperature metal alloys, such as Inconel 718, and new methods for metal additive manufacturing of ...

  4. Cold Spray EMAT continuous monitoring system for real-time structural health monitoring

    SBC: Innerspec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 34b

    As made evident by multiple publications by experts from the U.S. Department of Energy from 2014 through 2018, welded stainless-steel Dry Storage Canisters used for spent nuclear fuel storage are experiencing severe stress corrosion cracking, especially in the welds’ heat-affected zone. In 2016, there were 2777 Dry Storage Canisters deployed across the country, and approximately 200 more are add ...

  5. 18-20 MeV Transportable High Field Superconducting Cyclotron for Security Applications

    SBC: T Antaya, LLC            Topic: 04a

    Critical security applications- the detection of WMD, strategic nuclear materials, contraband and organic/inorganic discrimination, in Seaports, Ports of Entry, air freight shipping centers, and clandestine operations, require fast, high discrimination radiation scanning systems that are compact, easily fielded, and operate low overall radiation levels. A new type of cyclotron, the compact high fi ...

  6. Two-Dimensional Dispersion Interferometer

    SBC: L-Egant Solutions, LLC            Topic: 24a

    Many applications in science, engineering, biology, and technology rely on interferometry to measure precisely the density of a plasma, gas, fluid, cellular structure, etc. Optical interferometry provides the highest sensitivity and resolution of all similar methods, yet designs are limited by mechanical vibrations, design complexity, and high maintenance. A Dispersion Interferometer (DI) alleviat ...

  7. Algae Photobioreactor for High-throughput, Low-cost Research and Development

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 08c

    To advance a strong and economically viable biofuels and bioproducts industry, tools are needed for selecting and improving microalgae strains that exhibit higher productivities under conditions prevalent in the open pond environment. Conventional laboratory cultivation systems do not meet research needs, as they are either high-cost, but at low replication, or alternatively low up- front cost, at ...

  8. Low CapEx Clean NH3 Synthesis for Seasonal Energy Storage and Hydrogen Fuel

    SBC: STARFIRE ENERGY INC            Topic: 12c

    Solar electricity price has dropped dramatically, making it the cheapest electricity to add to the grid in many locations. Its variable nature is now becoming a challenge to integrate into the electricity grid. Affordable, scalable, long-term energy storage is required to enable continued low-cost solar electricity deployment. Solar electricity can be used to make fuel, which provides long term en ...

  9. Luminescent Enhancement for Combined Solar and Commercial Agriculture

    SBC: Soliculture            Topic: 12e

    This proposal will develop a new racking/mounting system combined with a new agriculture- tuned luminescent solar panel for low cost high tunnel implementation to produce both crops and electricity for small local farms. Crop trials performed under this specialized panel/racking system can be extended to open field agriculture with standard utility scale racking system in phase II. The US agricult ...

  10. Thermoplastic Forming of Bulk Metallic Glass Nozzles for High-Pressure, Low-Temperature Hydrogen Fueling

    SBC: Supercool Metals LLC            Topic: 10b

    Strong environmental concerns related to an extensive use of fossil fuels lead to a more active development of vehicles that use an alternative fuel. Hydrogen is one such fuel that has the potential to be a cheaper, more efficient and a cleaner alternative to gasoline. With the predicted growth of fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fueling stations, a reliable and cost-effective hardware for the hydr ...
