  1. Integrated Management and Analysis Platform for Multi Domain Site Data

    SBC: SUBSURFACE INSIGHTS            Topic: 01c

    An understanding of terrestrial ecosystem processes requires integration and joint analysis of a large amount of heterogeneous (chemical, physical, vegetation, remote sensing, and microbiological) data from different providers. Microbiological data and analysis tools are currently separately managed and developed from other datasets, making it very challenging to fully understand terrestrial syste ...

  2. A Web-Based Kinetics Modeling Toolbox (KMT) for Biomass Thermal Conversion Processes

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    The development of a web-based software toolbox is proposed to enable predictions of product yields and product composition in thermal biomass- conversion processes. Biomass pyrolysis is the main focus because of its commercial importance, and because it is the first step in all thermal-conversion processes (gasification, combustion, etc.). Several kinetic models will be incorporated in the softwa ...

  3. Ultra-stable Anion Exchange Membrane for Solar-to-Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    We propose a unique design approach for enabling ultra-stable, high conductivity anion exchange membranes for solar-to-hydrogen generation applications. The innovation is targeted to address performance deficiencies in state-of-the-art membranes relating to conductivity, durability and permeability and was identified after analyzing the conduction and degradation mechanisms. The proposed design wi ...

  4. Improved Reactor And Catalyst For Light Alkanes To Olefins And Liquid Fuels

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Direct conversion of shale gas components ethane, propane, and butane to useful chemicals or transportation fuels has faced the central challenge that reaction rates and product yields high enough to be economic are accompanied by overreaction to full combustion products in either conventional or unconventional approaches. This is further strained by small processing scales associated with strande ...

  5. Cloud-based Watershed and Terrestrial Ecosystem Data Management, Integration, and Analytics

    SBC: SUBSURFACE INSIGHTS            Topic: 01c

    Actionable understanding of watershed and ecosystem behavior is required for a wide spectrum of societal and engineering needs by both government entities and commercial entities. These needs include, for example, water resource management, precision agriculture and hydropower. Such actionable understanding requires the ability to numerically model various coupled processes and associated reaction ...

  6. 3D printing of High Precision Radiation Filters for next generation Cosmic Background (CMB) studies.

    SBC: Obsidian Advanced Manufacturing LLC            Topic: 31h

    The next generation of Cosmic Ray Background detectors require large area filters in the microwave part of the spectrum between 100 to 300 Gigahertz. These filters are essential to the extremely sensitive detection of the cosmic background radiation at the level of one part in a billion and will require precise fabrication of metallic structures on a polymer substrate. These filters will be placed ...

  7. 18-20 MeV Transportable High Field Superconducting Cyclotron for Security Applications

    SBC: T Antaya, LLC            Topic: 04a

    Critical security applications- the detection of WMD, strategic nuclear materials, contraband and organic/inorganic discrimination, in Seaports, Ports of Entry, air freight shipping centers, and clandestine operations, require fast, high discrimination radiation scanning systems that are compact, easily fielded, and operate low overall radiation levels. A new type of cyclotron, the compact high fi ...

  8. NOVEL THERMAL BARRIER COATINGS FOR GASOLINE SPARK IGNITION ENGINES

    SBC: Solution Spray Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Currently spark ignition (SI) engines dominate the light vehicle market, and over 80 million light vehicle engines are made worldwide. However, such SI engines experience exceptionally poor efficiency at low to medium loads and speeds, and this makes it difficult to meet new fuel efficiency standards expected to be imposed in many locations around the world. Furthermore, the insufficient wall temp ...

  9. Hybrid Model-based Approach for Remote Diagnostics and Prognostics for Wind Turbines.

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 15b

    Offshore wind turbines have the inherent drawbacks of being remotely located and subject to harsh weather conditions such as storms, snow and sleet, that subject them to operational stresses. With the growing demand for wind energy in the US, it is imperative to maximize the operational efficiencies of the wind turbines and minimize the Levelised Cost Of Energy (LCOE). Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI) ...

  10. Turnkey Hydro Geophysical Monitoring and Decision Support System for Environmental Cleanup and Energy Applications

    SBC: SUBSURFACE INSIGHTS            Topic: 03a

    Actionable understanding of subsurface processes is required by multiple small and medium size companies involved in environmental cleanup and subsurface energy production. Having actionable understanding means that stakeholders (1) can assess and evaluate the merits and risks of different operational strategies given certain initial conditions and (2) modify these strategies over time as a functi ...
