  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. Low-Energy Rotary Shear for Sub-millimeter Particle Production

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 03a

    Inexpensive biofuels are essential to the national economic and environmental stability of the United States. Pathways are well established to ferment sugars derived from biomass into fuels and bioproducts. However, there is a massive gap between the physical form of raw cellulosic biomass and the form of the feedstock required for biofuels conversion. Low energy mechanical size reduction to sub-m ...

  3. Rapid Formation of Crystalline Plugs for Deep Borehole Seals

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    The DOE is evaluating deep borehole disposal of nuclear waste, where waste packages are emplaced in the lower sections of holes drilled 3 to 5 km deep in crystalline rock. A variety of plug and backfill materials are placed in the boreholes above the waste packages as structural and sealing members. This Phase I projectl will develop an approach to forming high performance plugs of molten metal a ...

  4. Power Density Enhancement and Cost Reduction of a No Moving Parts Wave Energy Harvester

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Ocean wave energy has the potential to support approximately 10% of domestic and global electricity demand. Despite considerable investment over the past decade, however, wave energy is unlikely to make a material contribution to domestic or global energy supplies unless new technologies with significantly lower capital costs and higher reliability than todays leading technologies can be developed ...

  5. Geothermal-Solar Hybrid Proof of Concept Retrofit

    SBC: Rappaport Energy Consulting LLC            Topic: 05a

    This is a proposal for the development of a geothermal-solar thermal pilot plant to be built on the Oregon Institute of Technology campus, a solar thermal array supplementing the geothermal power facilities. The recent award to ENEL for a geothermal-solar PV hybrid system had come to my attention and rekindled my hope for a hybrid system such as I had conceived many years ago. Hearing the papers a ...

  6. High-Resolution and Frequency, Printed Miniature Magnetic Probes

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 28d

    In modern fusion concepts, inductive pickup loops are one of the primary magnetic diagnostics in tokamaks and small-scale concept exploration experiments. They are used in industries and laboratories that utilize and study low-temperature plasmas. Inductive pickup loops are capable of extremely high bandwidths, allowing for the measurements of both high frequency magnetic perturbations (requires ...

  7. Development of an In-situ Environmental Fluid Cell for Synchrotron X-ray Microscopy

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Co, Dba Hummingbird            Topic: 03d

    Observing solid-liquid interfaces with high resolution is important for comprehension of physical, chemical and biological interactions between material and fluid. A more detailed knowledge of these interactions can substantially improve our understanding of the processes that occur during operation of catalysts and degradation of materials inside battery, as well as the operation of ...

  8. In-Situ Transmission Electron Microscope Liquid Specimen Holder with Integrated Temperature and Acidity Sensors

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Co, Dba Hummingbird            Topic: 08a

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a microfluidic in-situ TEM specimen holder with accurate environmental parameter monitoring capabilities; The inability to dynamically image materials at atomic resolutions in changing liquid environments is a significant impediment to the advancement of physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical sciences. Currently, none of the results acquir ...

  9. TAU Commander: An Intuitive Interface for the TAU Performance Analysis System

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 02b

    The TAU Performance System is a powerful and highly versatile profiling and tracing tool ecosystem for performance analysis of parallel programs. Developed over the last 15 years, TAU has evolved with each new generation of HPC systems and scales efficiently to hundreds of thousands of cores on the largest computers in the world. TAUs organic growth has resulted in a loosely coupled potpourri of ...

  10. A Wireline Cone Penetrometer System for Characterization of Radionuclides including Technetium-99

    SBC: Vista Engineering Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 20a

    The research proposed under this effort is focused on addressing the need for improved real-time in-situ sensing approaches for monitoring radionuclide contamination in the soils surrounding waste disposal facilities. Specifically this proposal focuses on the development of an approach for detecting technetium-99, which is a major risk driver at the Hanford site. The sensing approach that is propo ...
