  1. A HIGH RANGE PARTICLE VELOCITY TRANSDUCER DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN ESTABLISHED NEED FOR A SIMPLE ROBUST TRANSDUCER TO MEASURE PARTICLE VELOCITY IN SEVERE BLAST AND SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NUCLEAR AND HIGH EXPLOSIVE TESTS. A GAGE CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR DEVELOPMENT, BASED ON THE PROVEN MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES USED IN THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL DX GAGE, BUT RECONFIGURED MECHANICALLY AND ELECTRICALLY TO WITHSTAND THE HARSH SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS. THE CONCEPT RE ...

  2. A High Voltage Fast Switching Power Module for Active Control of Magnetic Fields and Edge Plasma Currents in Fusion Validation Platforms

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 21d

    Fast, reliable, real-time control of plasma is critical to the success of magnetic fusion science and is thought to be required for successful deployment of future power producing reactors. The development of efficient and robust solid-state switches for power systems for fast control of large inductance magnetic field coils, pulsed and/or modulated auxiliary radio frequency (RF) heating, neutral ...

  3. A NOVEL CONCEPT FOR EFFICIENT PRODUCTION OF LIQUID FUELS FROM COAL USING FLASH PYROLYSIS IN VIBRATED FLUIDIZED BEDS

    SBC: Pai Corp            Topic: N/A

    IN SPITE OF MAJOR EFFORTS TO DEVELOP PROCESSES FOR CONVERTING COAL INTO LIQUID HYDROCARBONS FOR MOTOR FUEL, NONE HAS ATTAINED COMMERCIAL VIABILITY BECAUSE OF DIFFICULTIES WITH POOR CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES AND HIGH CAPITAL COSTS. THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE COUPLING OF FLASH PYROLSIS WITH NEW ADVANCES IN VIBRATED FLUIDIZED BEDS AND PROMISES TO REDUCE COAL-PARTICLE DWELL TIME AND THE TIME TO QUENCH ...

  4. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  5. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  6. APPLYING A NOVEL STEAM AND CARGON DIOXIDE COMBINATION PROCESS IN HEAVY OIL AND TAR SAND RESERVOIRS

    SBC: R. L. Clampitt And            Topic: N/A

    THE UNITED STATES HAS A LARGE NATURAL RESOURCE OF HEAVY OIL DEPOSITS RANGING FROM 85 TO 100 BILLION BARRELS. THE LARGEST OF THESE ARE IN CALIFORNIA AND ALASKA. TODAY OVER 80 PERCENT OF THE OIL FROM ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY (EOR) RESULTS FROM STEAMFLOODING TECHNIQUES IN THESE LOW GRAVITY, HIGH VISCOSITY, OILCONTAINING RESERVOIRS. MOST OF THE COMMERCIAL PROJECTS ARE IN CALIFORNIA. THEY USE BOTH THE CON ...

  7. Atomic Force Microscope Active Optical Probe for Single-Molecule Imaging and Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy

    SBC: Actoprobe LLC            Topic: 08b

    Though technical advances in Atomic Force Microscopy have enabled scientists to analyze complex information at the molecular scale, current technology acquires information about mechanical, not chemical/optical properties. This project will develop an innovative class of atomic force microscopy probes that will enable scientists to acquire nanoscale information about mechanical/optical/chemical pr ...

  8. Developing Biomineralization Technology for Ensuring Wellbore Integrity

    SBC: Montana Emergent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Since drilling the earliest gas and oil wells, migration of hydrocarbons to the surface has challenged the oil and gas industry. With the recent onset of geologic CO2 sequestration activities, it has become even more important to develop well leakage mitigation strategies that can seal even microscopic apertures around injection, abandoned, and monitoring wells—especially in cases where traditio ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE DOWNHOLE SIGNAL CONDITIONING MODULE

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH RANGE (200,000 G) ACCELEROMETERS ARE THE ONLY TRANSDUCERS THAT PROVIDE THE REQUIRED LONG-TERM DATA IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF INTEREST TO THE BLAST AND SHOCK COMMUNITY. THESE GAGES HAVE A VERY LARGE DYNAMIC RANGE AND NOISE OFTEN MASKS THE LATE TIME (BUT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) DATA. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A CLOSE COUPLED LOGARITHMIC GAIN SIGNAL CONDITIONING SYSTEM THAT WILL CORRECT THE LATE TIME NOIS ...

  10. Development of an In-Situ Method for Cable Condition Monitoring Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 14c

    The sustainability of current fleet of nuclear power plants depends on the performance of key components such as cables which cannot easily or economically be replaced. The product of this project will provide the technology to verify the performance of cable insulation material that can degrade as plants age.
