  1. Ultra Lightweight High Pressure Hydrogen Fuel Tanks Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    At the present time, carbon fiber tanks are very expensive, with the high pressure vessel industry standard Toray T700 carbon fiber costing between $20 and $50 per kilogram alone. At this high price, the carbon fiber currently comprises as much as 75% of the overall tank cost and is a major roadblock on the path to commercialization. To make hydrogen fuel cells in early market and light-duty vehic ...

  3. High Specific Activity Sm-153 by Post Irradiation Isotope Separation

    SBC: IsoTherapeutics Group LLC            Topic: 46b

    Samarium-153 (153Sm) has ideal nuclear properties for a variety of therapeutic applications; however, it is only available in low specific activity (radioactivity/weight) form. While large quantities can be made by the 152Sm(n,)153Sm reaction in a medium flux reactor such as at the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center (MURR), typical irradiation parameters result in less th ...

  4. ClimatePipes: User-Friendly Data Access, Data Manipulation, Data Analysis and Visualization of Community Climate Models

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 30a

    Observations unequivocally show that the global climate is changing and the results are dramatic. With the accelerating pace of climate change, the impact of these changes will resonate through a broad range of fields including public health, infrastructure, water resources, and many others. These stakeholders need access to and resources for using climate data that are designed with the non-resea ...

  5. Self-Powered Wireless Sensors for Gas Turbine Power Systems

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 21d

    Selfpowered wireless sensors are needed for remotely assessing the health of fossil fuel turbine systems to maximize engine safety and readiness while minimizing fulllife maintenance and sustainment costs. Demands for increased engine performance require sensor systems to survive at temperatures of up to 1500C and at high pressures without impacting air flow. Conventional sensors cannot withstand ...

  6. Bro-Intelligent Load Balancer Towards Terabit-Scale Cyber-Security

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: 39d

    In an increasingly hostile computing environment, Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) serve an indispensable role in preserving the integrity of computer networks. This comes to manifest as the DOE is working at a national level to secure a number of strategic network entry points using Bro [DOE06, DOE09], a powerful NIDS developed by the networking group at the International Computer S ...

  7. Refactor++: Automated Support for Program Enhancements

    SBC: SEMANTIC DESIGNS            Topic: 62c

    Science and engineering depend on evolving ever more complex software, typically coded in C++, to investigate phenomena or design sophisticated products. The rate of delivered value for such software is often limited by its organization, and scientists/engineers spend significant effort trying to understand the code organization and restructuring the code to enable the next interesting concept o ...

  8. Tantalum Tube for Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 64a

    Diffusion barriers used in Nb3Sn wire are currently fabricated by wrapping Ta sheet into a tube with an overlap seam. The result of current practice is non- uniform deformation in the Ta sheet as it thins by wire drawing because of non-uniform grain size and texture. In addition, a significant portion of the diffusion barrier is twice as thick as need be. The overlap is wasteful of Ta and produc ...

  9. Reliable Parallel Electromagnetic Simulations on High-Order Unstructured Meshes (38A)

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 38a

    Researchers at SLAC ACD have developed a new generation of high-order finite element procedures for electromagnetic analyses that can effectively simulation new accelerator designs. These same analysis procedures are well suited for electromagnetic applications ranging from threat detection, to antenna de- sign, to wireless device design, to the treatment of cancer. Cost effective massively parall ...

  10. Underground Cable Advanced Diagnostics

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 57b

    In order to optimize the operating efficiency of the underground transmission system utilities must be able to safely maximize the power cable systems capacity. This allows the operator to: (1) Establish efficient generation scheduling; (2) Maximize power transfer capability; and (3) Extend decision time and options when responding to system contingencies. These are critical elements when develo ...
