  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Wave Powered Desalination System

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

    Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity and a great 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 rapidly growing world population, experts agree that seawater desalination on a large scale is required. However, while seawater desalination can solve many global water s ...

  7. UV/Near-IR Aerosol Absorption Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    Light-absorbing aerosols can influence the global radiation budget and thermodynamic balance of the planet by reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the surface and heating their surroundings- At present, most aerosol absorption measurement techniques collect the airborne samples on a filter substrate and then measure light attenuation due to the collected samples- The filter-based methods usual ...

  8. Under Keel Clearance- Risk Management System (UKC-RMS)

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    The S‐100 specification is a new geospatial standard for hydrographic data, that is presently under development by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). Once the S‐100 based products and services are fully developed by the IHO, current datasets will be scheduled for obsolescence, and the Hydrographic Offices (HOs) will no longer produce them. Companies offering e‐navigation solu ...
