  1. Small Integrated HFI Sensor for the AVR-2B


    "SSSC is pleased to propose the development and delivery of a Hostile Fire Indication Sensor (HFIS) based on the Phase I design concept. The resulting system will limit the number of circuit card assemblies to two: one for the short wave infrared (SWIR)

  2. Power Efficient Supercomputing

    SBC: Cognitive Electronics Llc            Topic: 35d

    Datacenters house server farms that perform many different jobs ranging from search engines to supercomputing. In aggregate these computer systems already consume enormous power, and their energy requirements are increasing both in absolute terms and in proportion to the total capacity of the United States electrical grid. With higher power consumption has come greater difficulty in keeping these ...

  3. Complete Characterization of Ultrafast X-Ray Pulses

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 12d

    We are improving critical technologies needed for the development of laser-driven, table-top ultrafast x-ray sources suitable for ultrafast characterization of transient structures of energized molecules undergoing dissociation, isomerization, or intramolecular energy redistribution. In this SBIR project, Mesa Photonics will develop an X-ray ultrafast laser pulse measurement instrument for complet ...

  4. Chemical remote sensor for proliferation

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 50d

    Mesa Photonics plans development of a remote sensor to be used to detect clandestine nuclear material processing. We have identified a volatile chemical that is indicative of key steps in uranium isotope enrichment, and can be detected readily at low concentrations using optical methods. Small plumes that are about 1 m across and containing as little as 20 parts per million (ppm), or less, of th ...

  5. Intelligent Trace Analysis for Automatic Extraction of Analog Seismographic Data

    SBC: RETRIEVER TECHNOLOGY            Topic: 06c

    Seismic detection systems are one of the primary means used to monitor subsurface nuclear explosions. Consequently, the study of previous seismic events provides a critical underpinning for ongoing nonproliferation efforts. In this proposal, Retriever Technology will continue its efforts to develop accurate and automated software to extract digital X-Y trace information from historical analog sei ...

  6. Micro-Fluidic Spectrometer for Measuring Groundwater Contamination

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    DOEs efforts to monitor legacy sites for groundwater contamination would benefit from turn-key systems that can measure metal contaminant concentrations in situ. Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a micro-fluidic sensor for measuring heavy metals in groundwater by measuring their uv-visible spectra. High sensitivity will be obtained using cavity enhanced spectroscopy. A novel cavity enhanced o ...

  7. Superconducting Tunnel Junction Detectors for High-Resolution X-Ray Spectroscopy

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 17c

    X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a widely used experimental technique for studying the composition and chemistry of materials and is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of synchrotron light sources and their increase in brightness by many orders of magnitude. However, advances in detector technology have not kept pace with advances in synchrotron brightness, leading to limitation ...

  8. Advanced Materials Technology for Nuclear Fuel Research and Development

    SBC: Thor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Improved cladding materials are needed for better structural stability in the corrosive high-pressure, hot-water environment of light water reactors, not only to extend fuel rod lifetime and increase fuel utilization (i.e., burn-up), but also to stave off run- away, active oxidation and melting of the rods under loss of coolant conditions. Proposed program will develop the use of a ceramic adhes ...

  9. Explosive Bonding of Plasma Facing Components

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: 22a

    The high heat fluxes experienced by plasma facing components in energy producing fusion devices would benefit from refractory metal layers on their surfaces; however, it is difficult to bond refractory metals to non-refractory structural and heat sink materials. Explosive welding is proposed to metallurgically bond the refractory plasma facing materials to steel or copper heat sinks. Explosive wel ...

  10. Fully Integrated Low-Cost High-Precision Carbon Dioxide Analyzer

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 29b

    Understanding global warming requires continuous field measurements of carbon dioxide concentrations. High-precision measurements of a part-in-3000, or better, are required. However, these high-performance instruments must meet stringent cost objectives. A simple, rugged, infrared spectrometer can provide the required measurement precision at the solicited volume price point. Vista Photonics pr ...
