  1. Hardening of DOE UQ Codes for Ultra-Deep Proactive Geosteering in Oilfield Service

    SBC: CYENTECH CONSULTING LLC            Topic: 02b

    Most of future oil and gas exploration and production will be moving into more challenging environments and directional drilling is an essential technique for tapping the “difficult” oil and gas deposits. As the key technology that enables directional drilling, geosteering is the act of adjusting the well trajectory on the fly. The goal of geosteering is to increase production, reduce cost and ...

  6. Enabling Intelligent Security Assessment for HPC Systems via Automated Learning and Data Analytics

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Software protection and its associated tools can be regarded as a first line of defense for run-time integrity in an High Performance Computing (HPC) system, but cannot be easily extended to provide security solution beyond the software level. Hence, it is also essential to build a system-wide security analysis tool to assess the entire HPC system’s security. The major challenges for building su ...

  7. SAMPA: Security Analysis and Monitoring to Prevent Abuse of High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    HPC systems should not be used to carry out cybercrimes or execute improper jobs. Existing defense solutions such as fingerprint-based approaches require real-time data collection, which inevitably impacts the performance of HPC. Moreover, those solutions are ineffective against adversarial scenarios where malicious users intend to hide their behavior patterns. Hence, it is essential to build ligh ...

  8. Improved Light Extraction for a 130 lm/W OLED Lighting Panel

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: 01d

    One of the major hurdles to the commercialization of OLED lighting technology is its low light extraction efficiency when compared to inorganic LEDs. Currently only ~ 30% of the light produced by the OLED can be extracted. In order to be considered as a commercially viable option, OLED efficacy has to improve dramatically. The mismatch between the refractive indices among the active layer, transpa ...

  9. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    There are an estimated 1.7 million oil and gas wells in the United States, 771,000 of these are considered marginal producers. Combined they make up 11.3% of the US oil production and 8.3% of the US gas production. In that last 10 years, over 131,000 of these oil wells and 48,000 gas wells have been plugged and abandoned. Most of these wells suffer from paraffin plugging problems. The only way to ...
