  1. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...

  5. Diagnostic for Rapid Characterization of TRISO Fuel Pellets Using Soft X-Rays

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 55b

    In the coming generation of Very High Temperature Reactors (VHTRs), nuclear fuel is encapsulated into billions of small, tri-structural isotropic (TRISO) fuel pellets. To facilitate the licensing and economic competitiveness of the anticipated future generation of VHTRs, improved quality control of TRISO pellets (less than one bad coating in 105) is desired. Presently, characterization of fuel pel ...

  7. Coated Aerogel Electrodes for Photoelectrochemical Methanol Formation

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 11c

    Due to the current oil crisis, the United States has begun to focus on alternative energy sources for transportation and other domestic applications. Methanol offers a renewable alternative to many fossil fuels that can be a raw material for the synthetic hydrocarbons and their products. ISL proposes to fabricate a photo-electrochemical cell that converts carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas which can ...

  8. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...

  9. Development of an SRF Crab Crossing Cavity for an Electron Ion Collider

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 45c

    The highest priority in the Nuclear Physics program is, at present, the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams. In the longer term it is likely that a high priority will be an Electron Ion Collider, and several concepts are under development. In order to achieve the high luminosities that would be required to make such a machine attractive, some kind of bunch crabbing system will be required. For example ...

  10. Development of an SRF Deflecting/Crabbing System for FermiLab's Project-X

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 65g

    The only HEP laboratory left in the US is Femilab and the operation of the Tevatron will cease soon after the LHC at CERN starts accumulating data, either in 2010 or 2011. In order for a presence in HEP to be retained in the US, Fermilab is exploring a number of options, centered around what is called Project X. Several scenarios are being considered but will likely include a ~2GeV proton accelera ...
