  1. Enhancing Sca/LAPACKrc with Extremely-Fast Least-Squares Solvers for Heterogeneous CPU/FPGA Supercomputers

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: 42a

    An estimated 70% of supercomputing cycles are dedicated to solving large-scale least squares problems, which are at the core of important DOE computational problems in energy fusion research, bioinformatics, geodetics, structural analysis, tomography, and astrophysics. This project will extend the already successful Sca/LAPACKrc FPGA-accelerated solver suite for linear equations, with added functi ...

  3. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  4. Aerosol Mass Spectrometry via Laser-Induced Incandescence Particle Vaporization

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 50

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, human health, and climate. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities known to contribute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass in many locations. Black carbon, formed in combustion processes, is believed to have a particularly strong influence on the earth¿s climate o ...

  5. Low-Cost, Multispectral Particle Extinction Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    Aerosol particles affect the radiative balance of the earth directly, by scattering and absorbing solar and terrestrial radiation, and, indirectly, by acting as cloud condensation nuclei. It is now recognized that the atmospheric loading of aerosols generated through human activities can exert an influence on the earth¿s radiation budget comparable in magnitude with greenhouse gases. However, unc ...

  6. Development and Characterization of a Thermal Denuder for Aerosol Volatility Measurements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. However, of the organic aerosol mass, only a small fraction has been compositionally resolved, and little work has been done on the volatility and partitioning of organic compounds between ...

  7. Dual Laser Isotopic Flux Monitor for Carbon Dioxide and Water Vapor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    The increase of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Earth¿s atmosphere is the most important driver of global warming. In order to predict future carbon dioxide concentrations under various mitigation strategies, a better quantitative understanding of the sources and sinks of atmospheric carbon dioxide is required. The ratios of the stable isotopes of CO2 has long been recognized as markers for identifyi ...

  8. Development of Aircraft Borne 13CH4 Analyzer Using a Continuous Wave Quantum Cascade Infrared Laser Spectrometer

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 47

    Methane (CH4) is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2, yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Monitoring the isotopic composition of atmospheric methane is one of the most promising approaches to closing the methane budget. Recent claims that plants may account for a substantial fraction of atmospheric methane have lead to an increased e ...

  9. Characterization of Particulate Organic via Combined Thermal Desorption Aerosol Gas Chromatography and Aerosol Mass Spectrometry (TAG-AMS)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass in many locations. Of this organic aerosol mass, only a small fraction has been compositionally resolved, and much o ...

  10. Diamond Technology High Temperature Electronics Radiation Hardened Interceptor Communications

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T010

    The goal of this program is to develop high-speed interceptor communications solutions that are hardened to space and nuclear radiation, including high altitude nuclear explosions (HANEs). AET will design and develop lateral emission-based diamond integrated logic circuits that have been electrically tested, packaged, and characterized for temperature insensitivity and radiation hardness A lateral ...
