  1. Predictive Analytics-Based US Inland Waterways Voyage Planning Analysis Tool (VSAT)

    SBC: Trabus            Topic: 01a

    Trabus Technologies (TRABUS), working with Louisiana State University (LSU), will develop a predictive analytics-based US Inland Waterways Voyage Planning Analysis tool to help vessel traffic managers, tow boat pilots, and river lock operators maximize transport logistic resources. This tool will use current and forecasted hydrographic, meteorological, lock status, and Marine Safety Information to ...

  2. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  3. Tip-based femtosecond multiphoton spectroscopy with radiative heating

    SBC: Laser Prismatics LLC            Topic: 10a

    One of grand challenges in nanoscience and nanotechnology is to achieve fundamental under- standing of the dynamic evolution of materials in actual operating environment, non-equilibrium conditions, or undergoing chemical reactions at the nanoscale. This requires forefront advances in imaging and analysis techniques that combine nanometer-scale spatial resolution, optical excitation and spectrosco ...

  4. Wide Angle Neutron Spin Echo Device

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    The Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) method has provided unique information about the dynamics of soft materials, including confirmation of the de Gennes model of polymer reptation, and quantitative measurement of the bending constants of various membranes. In almost all cases these measurements have been made at small neutron scattering angles, where structural correlations with length scales between 10 n ...

  5. Axisymmetric and Focusing Analyzers to Enable Efficient Powder and Residual Stress Neutron Diffractometers

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    Although thermal and cold neutron scattering is widely used, and is critical for success in many areas of materials science and engineering, relatively low neutron fluxes severely limit applications of not only laboratory neutrons generators, but also large national neutron facilities. State-of-the-art thermal and cold neutron sources are large expensive national facilities, which serve diverse co ...

  6. An Analytical Technology Platform to Identify Symbiotic Interactions Between PGPR and Root Microbiome Members from Biofuel Feedstocks

    SBC: Powers & Zahr, LLC            Topic: 22a

    The overall goal of this STTR proposal is to establish a commercial microwell technology for high-throughput screening and characterization of interactions that are critical to plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) survival and function. PGPR can be used to improve crop stress tolerance by enhancing root function; providing nutrient uptake, nitrogen fixation, hormone regulation, and suppress ...

  7. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  8. Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmonic and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint Lithography

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is a powerful and unique approach to characterize the chemical, physical and potentially biochemical properties of materials with the nanometer scale resolution in real-time. A key element for NSOM systems that combine optical spectroscopy with scanning probe microscopy, is the actual probe itself. While many commercial vendors offer off-the-shelf meta ...

  9. Development of a superconducting RF flipper

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 08a

    A recent report by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee entitled “Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy” pointed to the need to better understand hierarchical and heterogeneous materials, often at the mesoscopic scale. Such structures can be studied by x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, but they do not generally yield narrow signals in momentum or energy space. The nat ...

  10. Single-shot Picosecond Temporal Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 24a

    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the primary tools for biological and materials characterization; however, there is an overarching need to push TEM temporal resolution into a ps-range to study physical processes on their fundamental spatial and temporal scales. With state-of-the-art TEM, however, it is not possible to capture a single image with a temporal resolution better than 10 ...
