  1. SBIR Phase II: Microwave ablation system for creating precision directed ablation zones

    SBC: Precision Microwave Inc.            Topic: BM

    The broader/commercial impact of this SBIR Phase II project proposes continued development of a directional microwave ablation (MWA) system. During MWA, doctors use image guidance to insert a thin needle-like applicator into a target tumor and then energize the microwave antenna embedded in the applicator’s tip to heat and kill the tumor. MWA is especially important to the large population of ca ...

  5. Early Prediction and Prevention of Frac Screen-out using Deep Reinforcement Learning

    SBC: Petrolern LLC            Topic: 23b

    Screen-out is a costly problem in hydraulic fracturing operations for stimulation of conventional and unconventional reservoirs that could potentially lead to massive downtime and increased capital spending on a well. It can happen due to either operational reasons, such as equipment malfunction, or issues related to the formation. We believe that screen-out can be potentially diagnosed ahead of t ...
