  1. 3-D Digital Image Correlation Based Non-Destructive Testing System for Qualification of Additive Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: NA

    NIST's seeks a high resolution DIC technology for qualification of complex AM parts. To meet this critical need, X-wave Innovations Inc. proposes to develop a 3-Dimentional Digital Image Correlation (3-D DIC) based NDT system. The proposed effort builds upon the success of XII in developing a variety of NDT technologies (including DIC system) for advanced materials evaluation. The success of the p ...

  2. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 832

    The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the gas engine gives long ...

  3. Field Deployable In Situ Excitation Emission Matrix Spectroscopy System for Subsurface Monitoring

    SBC: Accustrata, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Anthropogenic influences and natural processes can have long lasting effects on the health of the subsurface environment. Subsurface water is heavily affected by changes in the environment and its quality is regarded as a powerful metric for evaluating the health of the subsurface environment. Therefore, constant monitoring of groundwater quality to identify influences over the seasonal hydrologic ...

  6. Enabling Intelligent Security Assessment for HPC Systems via Automated Learning and Data Analytics

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Software protection and its associated tools can be regarded as a first line of defense for run-time integrity in an HPC system, but cannot be easily extended to provide security solution beyond the software level. Hence, it is also essential to build a system- wide security analysis tool to assess the entire HPC system’s security. By revealing the risks the system has to an adversary, and impro ...

  7. Ion Exchange Materials for Lithium Extraction (Topic: 15, Subtopic: e)

    SBC: Lilac Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 15e

    Electric vehicles are creating unprecedented demand for lithium. Most lithium is produced from brine resources. Conventional methods for extracting lithium from brines suffer from low lithium recovery and cannot access the expanded resources needed for mass adoption of electric vehicles. The Department of Energy has supported a great variety of projects relate ...

  8. SiC-SiC Slurry Bonding

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 10b

    SiC is an excellent material for fusion reactor environments, including first wall plasma facing materials and breeder-blanket modules. It is also being considered as structural elements in Small Modular Advanced High-Temperature Reactor (SmAHTR) because of its low-activation, temperature resistance, and radiation damage tolerance compared to most materials. The challenge is in joining the S ...

  9. Light Extraction for OLED Lighting with 3-D Gradient Index

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: 11b

    One of the major hurdles to the commercialization of OLED lighting technology is its low light extraction efficiency when compared to inorganic LEDs. Currently only ~ 30% of the light produced by the OLED can be extracted. In order to be considered as a commercially viable option, OLED efficacy has to improve dramatically. The mismatch between the refractive indices among the active layer, transp ...
