  1. Automated peak fitting and analysis software for advanced gas chromatography and mass spectrometer systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Recent advances in gas chromatographic (GC) and mass spectrometric (MS) techniques for atmospheric measurements have led to highly complex data sets that have overwhelmed the capabilities of current data analysis software. We propose a new method for the automated reduction of chromatographic data using peak-fitting algorithms. By relying upon constrained peak-fit parameterizat ...

  2. Development of a Portable 3-dimensional Variational (3DVAR) Data Assimilation Module for NOAA Operational Forecasting Systems

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 814

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose to continue the development of a generalized 3DVAR data assimilation module, in an open-source and non-proprietary programming language, which is compatible with FVCOM and incorporated into the Lake Erie Operational Forecast System (LEOFS). We will leverage our experience and expertise in using 3DVAR for a ROMS-based real-time forecast system for the California coast ...

  3. Automated HCl laser monitor for long term and flight deployments

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Tropospheric oxidation capacity is dominated by HOx photochemistry, however halogen atoms and oxides significantly affect these chemical cycles. A sensitive and robust measurement of gaseous HCl is critically important to improve our understanding of halogen chemistry and its impacts on the spatial and temporal oxidation capacity of the atmosphere. In Phase I, we met all of our ...

  4. SnapTrack: A Mobile App for Managing Property Reuse and Disposition

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: DLA162003

    The flow of equipment, repair parts, and other materiel to the Warfighter is critical to his or her success in the field.As a result of this critical need for materiel, DLA employees must contend with the difficult task of promoting and encouraging the reuse and disposition of excess property.With the advance of e-commerce sites and modern networks, searching a catalog for property has become a re ...

  5. Manufacture of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid from Furfural Produced from a Wet Waste Stream

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: 14c

    The proposed program provides a new biomass conversion technology to produce FDCA, 2,5- furandicarboxylic acid, to replace hydrocarbon chemicals for production of plasticizers and polyester polymers. FDCA is currently produced from hexose carbohydrates, such as sucrose or high fructose corn syrup. Recent trends in petroleum pricing have reduced biomass raw material cost advantages for replacement ...

  6. Photonic Memory Controller Module (P-MCM)

    SBC: ANALOG PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: 04a

    As computational density for high-performance computing and big-data services continues to scale, performance scalability of next generation computing systems is becoming increasingly constrained by limitations in memory access, power dissipation and chip packaging. The processor-memory communication bottleneck, a major challenge in current multicore processors due to limited pin-out and power bud ...

  7. Development of an Autonomous Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor with Integrated Calibration and Quality Assurance Capability

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Clouds play leading role in the Earth's global energy and solar radiation balance. Improving cloud models requires information on the cloud microphysical properties, such as particle size distribution and concentration, cloud composition (droplets, ice particles) and also information on ice crystal shapes (habits). New lightweight and low power instruments for characterization of mixed-phase cloud ...

  8. Manufacturing and Packaging of Reliable Bialkali Photocathodes via Sputtering

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 25d

    The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at BNL is the nation’s premier quantum chromodynamics (QCD) research facility. Its future upgrade calls for the implementation of electron cooling strategies, where ultra-cold electron beams will be generated by photoinjectors. The photocathode, where the electron beam is produced, is required to deliver a significantly high average current (~50 mA) to ...

  9. Robust Kr-85 Detectors for New Waste Cask Design

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Dry cask storage systems (DCSS) are used to store spent nuclear fuel from nuclear power plants. Without a long term storage solution in place, storage for decades in casks may be required. High burnup fuel rods may become brittle over time presenting problems for eventual transport of the spent fuel from reactor sites to a central storage facility. It is desired to passively determine the structur ...

  10. NDT System for Metal Components in Concrete Structures

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 32e

    Improved NDT (non-destructive testing) techniques are needed for inspection of concrete structures in nuclear power plants. Steel reinforcements embedded within concrete can corrode and crack, leading to weakening of the structures, and existing NDT techniques do not provide the full picture. Condition assessment is critical in evaluating these structures in order to ensure safe, long-term operati ...
