  1. Profiling Airborne Microwave Radiometer

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 17a

    A lightweight, low power, airborne microwave radiometer for clouds and atmospheric observations from an unmanned aerial system is being developed. This uniquely capable sensor will capitalize on the increasing utility of unmanned aerial platforms for scientific missions. It will make observations more economical, timely, and useful for a wide community.

  2. Thermodynamic Profiler for the Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer Observations

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 16a

    The life expectancy of offshore wind turbines is at least 20 years, during which they must operate optimally with respect to power production, minimization of mechanical stresses, plant wake distribution, and more in a range of atmospheric conditions. These conditions are currently observed using meteorological masts, which provide inadequate observations, thus resulting in suboptimal turbine desi ...

  3. Advanced PIC Algorithms for Modeling Plasmas

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 21c

    Particle-in-cell (PIC) simulation has now become a commonplace tool for simulating plasma ki- netics, but there are constraints on its effectiveness – timesteps must be small to avoid numerical instabilities, and the number of particles required to reduce statistical noise to acceptable levels may be computationally prohibitive. In plasmas with many multistate ion species, even determin- ing dom ...

  4. Software for the Predictive Synthesis of Nanoparticles in Plasmas

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 23b

    Fundamental understanding of the processes which govern the formation of nanoparticles is required to design industrial-scale automated mass production units. Detailed characterization of the plasma in nanoparticle growth regions enables identification of the parameters influencing the formation of nanoparticles in plasmas. However, since it is very difficult and time-consuming to directly measure ...

  5. Direct diode pumped 100-200kHz (200W) Ti:sapphire ultrafast laser system for compact, cost effective EUV generation.

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Coherent X-Ray sources for bio-medical applications (imaging, treatment, basic research, etc.) have been classically limited to large synchrotron facilities. This program will use laser technology to reduce cost and complexity down to the laboratory scale, increasing the speed of research in these areas and lowering the costs.

  9. Development of CORC® Wires for use in Canted Cosine Theta Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 27a

    Accelerator magnets that are currently being used in high-energy physics experiments are limited to a maximum magnetic field of less than 20 T because superconductivity in the low- temperature superconductors from which the magnets are constructed breaks down at higher fields. The next generation of accelerator magnets needs to be made from high-temperature superconducting magnet cables. Such cabl ...

  10. High Power CADRs and Associated Mechanisms for Next Generation CMB Experiments

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 29e

    Cooling experiments to ultra-cold temperatures permits exceptionally sensitive measurements to be made. This enables the study of subjects from quantum computation to subtle variations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). To date, there is only one practical technology which can continuously cool high power experiments below 0.2 Kelvin, the Helium Dilution Refrigerator (DR). These refrigerato ...
