  1. Ultra-High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 19d

    State of the art yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) based thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are typically limited to maximum use temperatures of 1200-1300C. A thermal barrier coating (TBC) with a 1500C temperature capability would be a major gas turbine materials breakthrough. New coatings with a 200C temperature advantage can be used by the gas turbine industry to significantly increase turbine effi ...

  2. Semantic Parsing and role Labeling In Combination Effort (SPLICE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA14B003

    With missions surrounding counterproliferation, nonproliferation and WMD reduction, the stakes for DTRA are incredibly high. Effectively conducting this work involves cooperation and coordination across a wide range of military and government organizations throughout the United States and the world. The decentralization of threats has led to an explosion in the sources and types of data needed to ...

  3. Energy-Recovery Linacs for Commercial Radioisotope Production

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 26a

    Most radioisotopes are produced by nuclear reactors or positive ion accelerators, which are expensive to construct and to operate. Photonuclear reactions using bremsstrahlung photon beams from less-expensive electron linacs can generate isotopes of critical interest, but much of the beam energy in a conventional electron linac is dumped, making unwanted radioactivation. GENERAL STATEMENT OF HOW T ...

  4. Production of a Zero Calorie Sweetener L-arabinose from Biomass D-Xylose by an Enzyme Cocktail

    SBC: Cell-free Bioinnovation Inc.            Topic: 13a

    A new high-value product zero calorie sweetener L-arabinose has been identified because it may be produced from the D-xylose-rich aqueous biomass intermediate stream at low costs. L-arabinose is an FDA approved healthy sweetener with dual functions as a sucrase inhibitor and a prebiotic, but its current high price ($30/kg) prevents wide use. The co-production of high-value products such as L-ara ...

  5. SELECT: Secure and Lightweight Computing Environment for HPC systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The increased accessibility via remote login, along with steadily growing numbers of HPC users and projects, poses a challenging question for HPC system management: How to secure HPC systems and protect the data inside these systems? There are several challenging issues that prevent the direct deployment of existing personal computer or cloud security tools in HPC systems: 1) The overhead introduc ...

  6. Facile, High Throughput Aerosol Production of Oxidizer Particles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DTRA14B001

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has been supporting research of energetic materials and incendiaries as payloads for weapons to defeat targets containing chemical and biological agents. Several universities and Navy labs have been involved in this research, and have narrowed down on a few material formulations that are efficient biocides. These formulations contain a chemical ingredient ...

  7. Pressurized Gas Beam Monitor for Extremely High Intensities

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 31e

    Intense neutrino beam facilities for fundamental physics research, e.g. LBNF at Fermilab, T2K at KEK, and LBNO at CERN, require hadron monitors to diagnose primary and secondary beam qualities. Existing beam monitors based on ionization chambers are not robust in the high-radiation environment vicinity of MW-class secondary particle production targets. A novel pressurized ga ...

  8. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: Nalas Engineering Services Inc            Topic: DTRA14B001

    The US DoD requires robust ways of neutralizing threats posed by hostile powers and terrorist organizations that may be in possession of dangerous weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Unfortunately, the weapons currently available to the DoD do not offer a way for the WMD to be destroyed without risking the spread of that material throughout the area. The strategy for the defeat of biological weapo ...

  9. ICE Ignition Using Transient Plasma Acceleration

    SBC: ARC TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: 17e

    Lean-burn gasoline engines have difficulty reliably igniting fuel mixtures at sufficiently high air to fuel ratios. Common ignition systems are based on a spark gap driven by a pulse transformer ignition coil). Unfortunately, these systems have small plasma excitation areas, are slow, wear down the spark plug electrodes, and are not suitable for high pressure engines. The use of transient plasma i ...

  10. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...
