  1. Wireless Sensor Platform for Dry Spent Fuel Cask Monitoring

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 31a

    Reactor cores in commercial power plants produce spent nuclear fuel which is discharged every 3-4 years. There is currently a pressing need to safely store spent fuel for long periods (decades to centuries) using dry storage systems. Such storage requires monitoring to ensure safe conditions as the waste decays. The system must meet challenging requirements: operate at 200 C, withstand high rad ...

  2. Wave-Powered Desalination System

    SBC: RESOLUTE MARINE ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 16a

    Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity. The vast majority of those affected live near a coastline in developing countries, on islands, and in remote communities. To satisfy the potable water needs of a growing world population, experts agree that seawater desalination on a large scale is required. Near-shore ocean waves provide an inexhaustible, consistent, and widely dist ...

  4. Ultracompact laser ceilometer for boundary layer and cloud height retrievals; 20(c)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The advent of sensor networks to gather atmospheric data for weather and climate prediction on large spatial and temporal scales is crucial to the advancement of our understanding of many different important processes that make up such predictive models. A prime example is the height of the atmospheric boundary layer, which is used to parameterize boundary layer transport in numerical weather pred ...

  5. Tl-based elpasolites for radiation detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    Preventing the proliferation of nuclear materials is critical in maintaining national security and safety. One key method is to identify Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) through their characteristic gamma-ray radiation and neutron emissions. None of the detectors available at present meet the key requirements of high energy resolution, high detection efficiency and low cost. The goal of the propose ...

  6. The Marine Debris and Small Object Mapping (DSOM) Radar System)

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 824D

    The DSOM system realized in a Phase II effort will provide a modular, compact and reconfigurable system with the ability to provide unique and new information about the scene of interest (e.g. temporal and height information) when compared with traditional SAR sensors. When compared with other imaging technologies, DSOM has the important advantages of being operable through cloud cover and at nigh ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Surface Acoustic Wave Enhancement of Photocathode Perfomance

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 23b

    Novel electron gun features are required to enhance the peak and/or average beam brightness by reducing the emittances of electron bunches while allowing the guns to operate at a high repetition rate using laser excitation of the photocathode. The generation of surface acoustical waves (SAWs) on piezoelectric substrates is known to produce strong piezoelectric fields that propagate on the surface ...
