  1. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  2. Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED)

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 842W

    There are currently no inexpensive, expendable air-deployed monitoring systems (Dropsondes) that measure atmospheric data and oceanographic as a function of depth. These are important data in predicting the intensity and path of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to provide NOAA with a solution to this challenge with the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsonde (MASED) p ...

  4. Templated Micro-Channel Thermal Control System

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 37e

    Electronic systems have increasingly high thermal demands that need improved cooling solutions that are reliable, light weight, and low cost. From computer data storage centers and electric vehicles to on-detector electronics used in nuclear physics instruments, a liquid-cooled micro-channel thermal control system will help improve the performance and reliability of these electronic systems. A new ...

  5. Neutron-Gamma Scintillation Detector for Emergency Response

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Current radiation detectors are typically capable of detecting only one type of radiation. Therefore, the current detection systems require a number of individual detectors to be used for each type of radiation. The development of the proposed nuclear detector significantly improves the capability to identify multiple modes of radiation (gamma-rays and neutrons) along with an enhanced gamma ray re ...

  6. Selective Catalysis for One-Step Lignocellulose Delignification and Lignin Valorization to High Value Methoxyphenols

    SBC: Spero Energy, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    The U.S.s global leadership position in the manufacture of high value chemicals (HVCs) relies on its ability to produce and utilize simple and useful organic (SUO) building block chemicals, a $400 billion a year enterprise based on nonrenewable petroleum feedstock. To maintain U.S.s leadership position in the 21st century, we must seek alternate renewable and economically competitive sources for m ...

  7. Flexible Barrier Coatings for Harsh Environments

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: 13b

    There is a need to reduce the cost and improve the reliability of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and their supporting infrastructure to enable FCEV competitiveness. Many reliability problems stem from plastic and elastomer seals employed in hydrogen systems that leak and degrade as a result of the extreme temperature and high pressure hydrogen environments. There is a critical need f ...

  8. Superlattice Doped APDs for Improved UV Sensitivity in Scintillator Calorimetry

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 35b

    One of the proposed next generation Intensity Frontier experiments is Mu2e. Mu2e will directly probe the Intensity Frontier as well as aid research on the Energy and Cosmic frontiers with precision measurements required to characterize the properties and interactions of new particles discovered at the Intensity Frontier. In order to reach its science goals, detector upgrades are required. A key ap ...

  9. Further Development of Large-Area Micro-channel Plates for a Broad Range of Commercial Applications, Topic 35a

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 35b

    Micro-channel plates (MCPs) are used in high energy physics (HEP), homeland security, medical imaging, and space applications. They provide high gain, low noise, and unmatched spatial and temporal resolution. However, their high cost and availability in only relatively small sizes remains a critical barrier to their widespread use in these markets. In this program high-resolution micro-channel pl ...

  10. Solid-State Neutron Detectors with Integrated Electronics for Nuclear Physics

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 39b

    At present, detectors of fast neutrons use liquid scintillators liquid scintillators can be dangerous to handle due to their low flash points and bulkiness, and the readout of the liquid scintillator by large PMTs limits the available position resolution and ability to operate in high magnetic fields. Large arrays of detectors are hampered by the large cost of many channels of electronics and the ...
