  1. Acoustic Smart Cement for Well Integrity Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Cementing is an integral part of well construction, providing the seal, protection, and support for the casing to maintain barriers that isolate the well.Wells can experience integrity failure due to structural instability in cemented regions due to subsidence and compaction caused by reservoir depletion over the lifetime of the well.Increased knowledge of cement placement, integrity, and conditio ...

  2. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Accidentally released lubricant into water bodies from hydropower production turbines and other marine (cruises, ships) applications challenges safe water recycling and management, and has invited a number of lawsuits.According to the Environmental Protection Agency, up to 16 million gallons of lubricants per year ? equating to 1.5 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill ? are washed off into wat ...

  3. Metamaterial Void Sensor for Fast Transient Testing

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 30a

    After the Daiichi nuclear disaster, the US Congress placed emphasis on accident tolerant fuels for reactors.During accident events, voids in cooling fluid can cause cladding weakening, and it is important to measure these effects in a controlled test.The project develops a fast void detector that can detect and localize voids, with a quantifiable detection limit superior to a capacitive void senso ...

  4. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    The Bottom Feeder project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a prototype platform. The prototype will be a full size version of the platform designed during Phase I. The Phase I platform was designed to work in two operational configurations, a highly efficient mode and a highly maneuverable mode, with the ability to switch between them while submerged. The platform is equ ...

  5. 3b Multi-modal small sensor package

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 03b

    Detecting and characterizing facilities and performing emergency location requires multi-modal, persistent surveillance by sensing and analysis. Infrasound and radio frequency direction finding (RF-DF) sensors have the proven ability to provide standoff detection. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of a small sensor package designed for small and medium unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) wi ...

  6. 20b Pup joint telemetry system

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 20b

    The proposed effort is a critical part of MVA programs for CO2 sequestration. The benefits include improved zonal isolation, higher data rates, and longer sensor battery life. Understanding reservoir stability and annulus cementing integrity will help determine new isolation criteria and verify existing operation. The new sequestration wells have applicability for greenhouse gas storage, environme ...

  7. Solar Modules: Low Cost Manufacturing

    SBC: Nextc Corporation            Topic: 12f

    Solar power is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy markets. Over the last twenty years, solar photovoltaics has gone from being a field of scientific study to one of commercial interest. Driving this change and solar adoption worldwide has been the decreasing cost per watt of solar power. While the drop in cost per watt has been largely driven by increasing panel efficiency, decreasing mat ...

  8. High Current Plasma Cathode for Accelerators

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: 26d

    A rugged reliable cathode technology for application in superconducting radio frequency industrial linear accelerators will be developed. The non-thermionic cathode has no low work function surfaces and as a result is not sensitive to background gases or pressure. The high current cathode operates in pulsed mode over a wide frequency range. The simple construction of the cathode makes it easy to r ...

  9. Biomimicry-based MHK for remote communities

    SBC: BLADE RUNNER, LLC            Topic: 14a

    Microgrids are essential for developing, sustaining and growing Remote Communities which have been historically powered by diesel generation for reliability. Renewable energy sources, primarily sun and wind, have been gaining strength in offering local and economical alternatives of power to remote microgrid. Nonetheless, their intermittency brings reliability at high storage costs and as typicall ...

  10. Compact Electron and X-ray Irradiation System to Enable Insect Sterilization

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: 04c

    A low cost compact, man-portable, x-ray irradiation system for application of the sterile insect technique will be developed. A scalable cathode will provide large area electron sources which will enable production of compact x-rays sources. A system which employs four such panels surrounding the irradiation chamber provides a uniform flux through which containers can move on a conveyor system. Th ...
