  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. Inert-Gas Buffering for Particle Size Separation of Superconductor Precursor Powders

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 35

    The removal of all particles over a desired micron-scale size threshold from a powder sample is critical to the development of fine-filament, powder-in-tube superconducting wires, for which the final filament size is limited by the largest particles in the precursor powder filling. This project will develop a particle-removal technology that disperses the powder in an aerosol suspension and then ...

  3. Insulation and Heat Treatment of Bi-2212 Wires for Wind-and-React Coils

    SBC: Advanced Magnetic and Cryogenic, LLC            Topic: 40

    Higher Field Magnets, used in high energy physics (HEP) research, demand higher field materials such as Bi2212 round superconducting wire. The Bi2212 wire-manufacturing process depends on the coil-fabrication method and wire-insulation material. For example, the wind-and-react method requires the coil to be uniformly heated to the melt temperature and uniformly cooled to the solidification tempe ...

  4. Accelerated Biomethanation of Sequestered Carbon Dioxide and Paraffin in Coal Beds

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 16

    The objectives of this research are to enhance and accelerate the in situ bioconversion of sequestered carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into methane in the presence of hydrogen-rich coal macerals and paraffin. Methanogens require a source of hydrogen and an electron acceptor such as carbon dioxide in order to generate methane. The abundance of hydrogen coupled with sequestered carbon dioxide in ...

  5. Innovative Technology for Virtual Leased-Line Services for High-Speech Networks

    SBC: Computational Consulting            Topic: 44

    High-performance optical networks play a pivotal role within the DOE complex by enabling high-bandwidth communication and collaboration over long distances. The problem, however, is that optical networks do not have the same buffering capacity as electrical networks, and, thus, they require new techniques and protocols to share optical links. Many current techniques result in poor network utiliz ...

  6. Technical Proposal: A Single Well Test for Green House Gas Sequestration/Enhanced Methane Recovery Design Parameters

    SBC: Correlations Company            Topic: 18

    There is a need to accelerate the technology for sequestering green house gas (GHG) emmissions from coal-fired electrical-generating plants, thereby reducing global warming. One sequestration option involves the injection of GHG into coalbeds. A straightforward inexpensive method is needed to predict the amount of CO2, NO2, and SO2 (all GHG components) that can be sequestered in unmineable coalb ...

  7. Achieving a High Level of Scalability in Federated Information Retrieval

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: 45

    At the present time, no federated search engine exists that is capable of searching, aggregating, and ranking more than a small fraction of the scientific content produced by the research community at large and by DOE researchers in particular. Although thousands of sources of valuable content exist, a solution has not been developed that ensures that scientific discoveries already made can be ea ...

  8. Interactive Physics Data Analysis Using Streaming Grid Technology

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: 42

    High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments face major challenges in building interactive analysis environments for the unprecedented volume of data that will be gathered in the next generation of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other accelerators. The current generation of HEP Grid infrastructures is largely aimed at the initial event reconstruction and analysis phases and may not b ...

  9. Ultra High Efficiency Silicon Carbide Based Hid Electronic Ballast With Dimming and Quick Restart Service Functions

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: 32

    Electronic ballasts for high intensity discharge (HID) lamps have achieved significant improvements over magnetic ballasts by increasing efficiencies from ~80-85% to ~90-93%, while improving power factor, lamp re-start, and the avoidance of acoustic resonance. In order to further improve the efficiency of these ballasts to greater than 95%, advanced power electronics ¿ such as silicon carbide (S ...

  10. Gas Phase Catalytic Oxidation of Cyclohexane to Cyclohexanone and Cyclohexanol

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 30

    In the U.S., the annual production of 4.6 billion pounds of nylon starts with the liquid-phase oxidation of 3.5 billion pounds of cyclohexane to KA-oil (a mixture of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol) and the subsequent oxidation of the latter to adipic acid with HNO3. The liquid-phase cyclohexane process, which operates at only 4-10% cyclohexane conversion, is the ¿least efficient¿ industrial pro ...
