  3. An Enhanced Contact Plasma Reactor: A Competitive Remediation Technology for Per- and Perfluoroalkyl Substance (PFAS) Contaminated Water

    SBC: Dmax Plasma LLC            Topic: 17NCER1A

    Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have received considerable attention due to their toxicity, ubiquitous presence and recalcitrance. Manufacture and disposal of PFAS-containing products has resulted in PFAS contamination of numerous water supplies. Recent reports indicate the Air Force alone is expecting to spend > $2.25 billion for cleanup for PFAS-contaminated sites. Thus, there is a huge market ...

  4. Green Process for Plastic Chrome

    SBC: VERGASON TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 17NCER5B

    This green approach to manufacturing plastic with decorative chrome will eliminate health and environmental hazards from the chrome electroplating process. The US and global market for decorative chrome on plastic is 12 million m2/year and 84 million m2/year respectively, with 80% in automobile trim, 10% in appliances and 10% in sanitary fixtures. Without a viable commercial alternative, US provid ...

  5. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  6. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing of All Solid-State Batteries with Novel Electrode Architectures

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172005

    Supercapacitors have attracted considerable recent attentions due to their high-power density, and long cycle life. Unfortunately, the energy density of supercapacitors is too low to meet these applications requiring an energy supply for longer periods (hours or days). Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a superior all solid-state battery (ASSB) fabricated by additive manufacturing ...

  8. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  9. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...
