  1. A Cloud-enabled Mobile System for Integrated Nuclear Forensic Analysis

    SBC: D-TECH, LLC            Topic: 03a

    Nuclear forensic analysis (NFA) is a complex multi-level process that requires detailed data collection, record keeping, and data exchange management throughout an investigation lifecycle. Currently, forensic data are mostly collected manually using paper forms and forensic digital records that are kept in various spreadsheets or data formats. There are no integrated data standards to ensure the q ...

  2. Automotive-qualified 900 V/250 A SiC DMOSFETs with integrated Schottky Rectifiers

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 14b

    Reducing the size, weight, and increasing the efficiency of electric vehicle traction power inverters requires the development of novel high-voltage, high current Silicon Carbide high-speed switches and rectifiers, since the existing Silicon technology is severely limited in terms of operating temperature, frequency and energy efficiency. However, the non-optimized device and manufacturing technol ...

  3. Development and Characterization of SiC-Clad Control Rods & SiC Guide Tubes for Accident-Tolerant


    In a loss of coolant accident, the fuel rod cladding can overheat and burst open exposing the nuclear fuel within. It can also react chemically with the residual steam present in the core to release hydrogen, forming a potentially explosive mixture that can challenge containment integrity. Accident-tolerant fuel attempts to prevent these effects by replacing the zirconium-alloy fuel rod cladding w ...

  4. Remote Repair of Sealed Containers or Dry Storage Casks Containing Used Nuclear Fuel


    Currently there are three types of storage systems used to store dry spent fuel: unshielded canisters in vertically-oriented shielded overpacks or silos, unshielded canisters horizontally oriented in concrete modules, and shielded casks. Different types of damage are possible for all three systems. The health and safety of the public will be best protected if the containment and shielding surround ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing of SMR Holddown Springs and Upper Nozzle Interfaces


    Cost and time associated with material waste, quality control, inspection, and manufacturing of nuclear fuel assembly components can be detrimental to nuclear plant design and development. Specifically, holddown springs are prime component examples that inherently carry these issues due to their complex geometries and attachment points. The design engineer must always weigh the manufacturing pract ...

  6. A New Class of Low-Cost, High Capacity Cathode Materials for Next Generation Rechargebale Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: NextGen Battery Technologies, LLC            Topic: 14a

    Cathode materials with significantly higher specific capacities than what is currently available are critical to meeting the DOE’s goals of 350 Wh/kg and 750 Wh/L at the cell-level. New materials that are capable of accommodating more than one lithium ion per transition metal can have a transformational impact on the energy density. Manganese-based cathode compositions, while being low cost and ...

  7. Surface Modification of Cellulose Nanofibrils for Reinforcement of Composites

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 08a

    Cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) are a class of high axial ratio, nanoscale materials that can be sustainably derived from wood and plant products. Of particular interest is using CNFs as a reinforcement additive in polymer composites as a replacement for petroleum derived carbon fibers. The major obstacle to the use of CNF in resin applications is the incompatibility of their surface chemistry to that ...

  8. Fiber Optic Sensor for Simultaneous Measurement of Temperature and Pressure

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 29a

    Continued use of nuclear power is critical to meeting carbon emission goals and ensuring national security. Nuclear power production will rely on both current generation (LWR and PWR) as well as next generation designs including very-high-temperature, molten-salt, supercritical- water-cooled, gas-cooled, sodium-cooled, and/or lead-cooled reactors. The development and deployment of these high tempe ...

  9. Development of the Low-Altitude Maritime Survey-Sampling (LAMASS) System

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 828

    In this Phase I effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations, in collaboration with Aerovel, Inc., proposes to assess the feasibility of developing a multi-mission, transdisciplinary manned aerial platform, capable of fulfilling NOAA’s requirement to survey, map and collect on our nation’s natural ecosystems. Combining Aerovel’s experience in UAS development with PEMDAS’ atmospheric sensor ...

  10. Mariner Report Application (MARApp): Crowdsourcing Maritime Weather Conditions

    SBC: Liteweaver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 826

    Metron proposes a software framework for crowd-sourcing weather observations in a maritime environment leveraging personal mobile devices. Our proposed App, the Mariner’s Report App (MARApp), draws data from existing sensors in modern smartphones and tablets, as well as meteorological sensors normally found on small marine vessels. Our architecture is modular, extensible, and readily adaptable t ...
