  1. Intelligent Adaptive Needs Characterization for M&S Systems Engineering

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: MDA11T003

    System requirements elicitation is a time consuming process with an extremely high penalty for errors. Mistakes made in the requirements phase will cost 50 times more to fix while they are uncovered in the production phase as compared to fixing them in the requirements phase. VIStology and Northeastern University are proposing to develop an approach for supporting the requirements elicitation phas ...

  2. Modeling of Lithium-Ion Cell Performance


    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with their academic partners and industrial partners propose to develop a prototype integrated physics-based model and accelerated testing process that will reduce the qualification time and testing required for Li-ion cells used in LEO/MEO satellite applications. The integrated physics-based model will focus on three key Li-ion cell degradatio ...

  4. A Novel High Efficiency 1.5 MW, 110 GHz Gyrotron with HE11 Output for Plasma Heating

    SBC: BRIDGE 12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 23b

    Electron Cyclotron Resonance Heating (ECRH) has emerged as one of the most important tools for plasma heating and stabilization in magnetically confined fusion devices. In particular, ECRH is the most effective tool for suppressing Neoclassical Tearing Modes (NTM) in both currently operating tokamaks such as DIII-D, General Atomics and future tokamaks such as ITER. Current generation of MW gyrotro ...

  5. Application of Global Weather and Climate Model Output to the Design and Operatio of Wind-Energy Systems


    Goals of 80% clean energy production for the United States by 2035 and 20% of the countrys power being supplied by wind energy by 2030 imply nearly a tenfold increase in wind power production. This means that the need for forecast information will extend to longer projection windows with increasing penetration of wind power into the grid and also with diminishing reserve margins to meet peak loads ...

  6. Drive Systems for Photonic Bandgap (PBG) Accelerators

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 28a

    As high energy physics facilities get bigger and more costly, the DOE HEP program seeks to develop advanced technologies that can be used to reduce the overall machine size and cost. Incom Inc. and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) are co-developing photonic band-gap (PBG) microstructures to enable compact, high-gradient ( & gt; 1GeV/m), inexpensive particle accelerators. To date, thi ...

  7. Networkable Automated Water Vapor Lidar for Tropospheric Profiling

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 03g

    Measurement of the vertical profile of H2O vapor in the lower atmosphere can provide new understanding of the dynamics of H2O vapor mass transport on several scales. Such measurements can improve predictive capability for precipitation forecasts. They can also lead to increased understanding of complex feedback mechanisms involving the interaction of H2O vapor, temperature, radiative balance, and ...

  8. RF Microplasma Arrays for Singlet Delta Oxygen Generation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 25a

    Many electric discharge plasma techniques for biological applications are still in the basic research stage. Of those closer to practical application, energetic singlet delta oxygen is known to destroy biological cells including bacteria and cancer cells, but present methods are limited by very low concentrations. Many practical medical and decontamination applications require the development of ...

  9. Development of Joint Methods for 2G HTS Tape High-Current Cables

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Future magnets for Fusion Energy Systems require superconducting cables with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, 20 kelvin operation, low AC losses and lower cost. The second generation high temperature superconductors are manufactured in tape form that has differing transverse resistivity from the top compared to the bottom of the conductor. An new method of ...

  10. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...
