  1. A High Flux Neutron Generator for Measuring Bulk Residual Stress via Diffraction

    SBC: Phoenix LLC            Topic: AF131119

    ABSTRACT: Residual stresses can be created in engineered components by most common fabrication processes (e.g., welding, joining, machining, casting, heat treating, press fitting, etc.). They are of particular concern to the aerospace industry because they are difficult to measure and can lead to premature failure of flight-critical components. There are several established methodologies for ch ...

  2. Roll-to-Roll Printing of Patterned Nanomembranes on Flexible Substrates

    SBC: SysteMECH, Inc            Topic: OSD10T005

    Flexible electronic and optical devices, including sensors/detectors, waveguides, and photonic crystal structures, have significant promise for improving communication and information processing capabilities in a number of military and commercial applications. However, the development of such flexible devices has been hindered by the lack of effective manufacturing processes for producing these de ...

  3. High Reliability, Long Lifetime H- Ion Source

    SBC: Phoenix LLC            Topic: 32e

    In this work, a long lifetime (greater than 6 months) H- ion source capable of reliably delivering current greater than 10 mA will be designed. The immediate DoE need for this technology is a reliable DC H- ion source that will inject an ion beam into the proposed Project X particle accelerator at Fermi National Laboratory. There are several other basic science, medical, energy, and industrial ...

  4. PRISMS- Profile Resolving In-Situ Soil Moisture Sensor

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 20a

    Many contaminated DOE sites are located in arid regions where depth to groundwater is significant and/or contaminants were discharged into a vadose zone through which transport to the groundwater table is dominated by unsteady, unsaturated groundwater flow. The absence of an effective means to monitor vadose zone moisture content in profile has been a persistent impediment to developing and calibr ...

  5. Development Of Ultra-Low Noise, Wide Bandwidth, High Gain Transimpedance Amplifiers For Experimental And Commercial Detection Systems

    SBC: XANTHO TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 28a

    Many detectors - including solid-state particle detectors, microchannel plates, and photodiodes - output small current signals that require amplification and conversion to a voltage. Current-to-voltage converters (I/Vs) are widely utilized in experimental and commercial applications for this task. Numerous detection systems require wide bandwidth, ultra-low noise, high gain, and linear amplificati ...

  6. Vacuum Glazing with Glass Bonding Able to Withstand ASTM-2190

    SBC: V-Glass LLC            Topic: 03f

    Vacuum glazing has been on the market for over a decade, but its performance is poor, and its cost too high for wide adoption. Both issues stem from the use of a hard glass edge seal, which requires a high temperature manufacturing process, and which does not flex to accommodate outer pane contraction in winter weather. Lack of a low-cost, flexible seal has prevented successful commercialization o ...

  7. Variable Inlet Bypass for Efficient Wide Flow Range Turbocharger Compressor

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 06c

    Increased use of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) combined with engine downsizing has pushed automotive turbocharger compressor operation towards and often beyond its efficient and stable operating boundaries. Much of the drive cycle is spent operating the compressor at low flow rates and low pressure ratios, near the compressor surge line, in an area which is usually of low efficiency. Our prelimi ...

  8. Low Cost Solvent Free Manufacturing of Lithium IonProsmatic and Bipolar Cell Development for Advanced Vehicle Applications

    SBC: ESKRA TECHNICAL PRODUCTS INC            Topic: 06a

    The desire and benefit to improve the environment through the use of advanced electric drive vehicles is hampered by the high cost and associated manufacturing hazards associated with the manufacture of lithium ion batteries. The use of solvents in the lithium ion battery manufacturing process leads to high capital cost plants and subsequent recurring high manufacturing costs. Eskra Technical Pr ...

  9. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  10. Trust-Enabled Cyber Craft

    SBC: CYBER DEFENSE AGENCY, LLC            Topic: OSD06IA5

    Cyber Defense Agency sees cyber craft as a potentially powerful distributed security enforcement mechanism performing a variety of functions from intrusion detection to policy enforcement. To realize the great potential, the elements require a means to establish trust or else the cyber craft could be hijacked as a powerful attack vector. Without a means to establish trust, the risks of using cyb ...
