  1. NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) "Smart Receiver"

    SBC: Hy-Tek, Ltd.            Topic: 837

    There is a critical need for a high performance receiver that knows where it is, knows where the NWR transmitting stations are, tunes itself to the local NWR station (especially in a mobile environment), provides weather and warnings in both audio and text, requires little-to-no setup and can communicate with other devices such as external alarms and network systems that can better warn its owner ...

  2. Workstation Network Interfaces for 10 Gbps and Beyond

    SBC: Acadia Optronics, Llc            Topic: 40

    The increasing requirements of the government¿s scientific visualization and collaboration software in the short term and the demands of multimedia end-users in the near future require dramatic advances in workstation throughput. Desktop network interface throughput must correspond to the bandwidth available on current high performance networks. To meet these next-generation networking goals, th ...

  3. Dynamically Reconfigurable Network Interface Framework

    SBC: Acadia Optronics, Llc            Topic: 44

    Emerging, large-scale, distributed science applications sponsored by the DOE will depend on a wide range of high-performance networks. However, as network speeds increase beyond 10 GB/s, software-based implementations of network functions are unable to keep pace. Therefore, network interfaces are needed that can be reconfigured easily at the hardware level, in order to provide the user with any ...

  4. Double-Helix Coil Technology for Bent Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MAGNET LAB, INC.            Topic: 49

    High-field (~5 T) bent-dipole (0.7 m radius) magnets are required as part of a 180-degree-bend beam-transport region in the high radiation areas of a planned Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA). The requirements for these magnets can be met by using a novel coil design called the double-helix dipole (DHD). The double-helix approach offers a solution to the design of these curved magnets that is much ...

  5. Field Portable Gel Element Arrays for Microbial Community Profiling in Subsurface Sediments and Groundwater

    SBC: AKONNI BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: 07

    In order to implement effective, safe, and scientifically-based approaches to the remediation of contaminated sites, such as some in the DOE complex, engineers and policy makers require fundamental information on microorganisms in the subsurface. In particular, information is needed to identify: factors that affect specific changes in contaminant speciation and mobility; how microbial population ...

  6. Water-Conserving Steam Ammonia Power Cycle

    SBC: ENERGY CONCEPTS CO., LLC            Topic: 11

    Fresh water is growing scarcer and costlier. Power production is the second largest user of fresh water, consuming about 25 gallons per kilowatt-hour in coal-fired plants. In particular, steam power plants, which use air-cooling to reduce water usage, suffer large economic and efficiency penalties, due to the deep vacuum at which steam condensers operate. This project will develop a new power c ...

  7. Non-Perturbing Multi-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor

    SBC: Fieldmetrics Inc.            Topic: 32

    The data storage market constitutes a sizeable and rapidly growing facet of the world economy, and worldwide data storage needs are growing at an unprecedented rate. New technologies are needed to keep up with the demand for affordable, efficient, and permanent (archival) digital storage. This project will develop a new type of data storage system that uses very thin layers of material to perman ...

  8. A Low-Cost Modular Optical Voltage Sensor for Power Transmission Applications

    SBC: Fieldmetrics Inc.            Topic: 05

    Because investment in the United States power-grid infrastructure has not kept pace with increased energy demands, existing power lines must operate close to conservative safety limits. Advanced instrumentation can simultaneously improve efficiency and maintain reliability by enabling true dynamic rating, identifying grid operational instability, and improving operator response to contingencies. ...

  9. SiC Semiconductor Switches for Klystron Modulators

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 39

    The severe voltage, speed, and size specifications of Klystron modulators in the International Linear Collider, a facility important to DOE high-energy-physics research, may neccessitate the development of ultra-high-voltage, SiC semiconductor switches. These switches need to be optimized for pulsed-power requirements because of the unique specifications for Klystron modulators: ultra-high voltag ...

  10. Nanostructured Composites for Space-Bound Housings


    In satellites designed to monitor nuclear explosions, current electromechanical housings are fabricated from aluminum, which is much heavier than composite materials. Because it costs approximately $10,000 per pound to put an object into space, weight is critical. However, even with the obvious weight advantage, composite materials are not used: their low strength and minimal conductivity rende ...
