  1. A miniature, low-cost black carbon sensor for unmanned platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Achieving a systems-level understanding of science associated with climate change is a key topic within the DOE mission. Light absorbing particles are an important atmospheric constituent and have a direct impact on climate. They also impact air quality and health and human activities play a major role in their abundance and distribution. There is a critical need for improved observational capacit ...

  2. Novel Process for Biomass Conversion to 5 Carbon Alcohols

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 18e

    As the world population increases and global GDP rises, the demand for energy is projected to increase dramatically. Fossil fuels are currently a leading energy source, approximately 50% of which is imported from foreign sources. A domestically produced, renewable energy source is needed to ensure the energy security of the United States. One source of domestic potential energy currently under- ...

  3. 31e. Pressurized Gas Beam Monitor for Extremely High Intensities

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 31e

    A novel pressurized gasfilled multiRFcavity beam profile monitor has been studied that is simple and robust in highradiation environments. Charged particles passing through each RFcavity in the monitor produce intensitydependent ionized plasma, which changes the gas permittivity. Standard RF techniques to measure the change in quality factor (Q) and frequency (f) as a function of time are then use ...

  4. Low-Cost, High-Accuracy, Whole-Building Carbon Dioxide Monitoring for Demand Control Ventilation

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 11

    The objective of the proposed work is to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate new technologies for low-cost, high-accuracy, whole-building CO2 monitoring for demand control ventilation. The work builds on a private/public partnership formed between Dioxide MaterialsTM and the Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE) at Florida Atlantic University. In previous, NSF-sup ...

  5. Economical Self-Powered Portable Clean Energy Desalination System

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Many communities face water scarcity as a fundamental challenge to their economic and social development. Seawater is an abundant source which can be reached by most of the countries in the world. In order to utilize seawater as potable water, it is required to remove the high salinity. Desalination technologies are intended for the removal of dissolved salts that cannot be removed by conventional ...

  6. Bio-inspired Macromolecules Containing Atomically Precise Catalytic Active Sites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 09

    High selectivity in chemical reactions is the key to reducing costs, energy consumption and emissions in chemical processing. More selective and active catalysts will reduce the need for recovering unreacted chemicals for recycle and removing byproducts. Reducing the burden on separation processes will greatly reduce the energy required for chemical production. We propose to design macromolecular ...

  7. Optimal Integrated Control of Grid-Connected PV Generation and On-site Load

    SBC: NHU Energy, Inc.            Topic: 13

    Maximizing the value proposition for solar and distributed energy resources to consumers requires a more integrated and coordinated approach to utilizing these resources on-site. Commercial solutions are not yet widely available to provide optimal use of combined on-site resources locally, while at the same time optimizing their value to the electric power distribution system as well. Solutions st ...

  8. Micro-electrocatalytic Upgrading of Carbon Dioxide to Hydrocarbons

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 18

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed in your application. Coal-generated power represents a major source of electrical generation in the Nation, and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future. However, recently proposed limits on CO2 emissions from new electrical generation capacity will necessitate carbon capture functions to be installed on any new coal-fired power ...

  9. Optical fiber integration into Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox/Ag/AgX and (RE)Ba2Cu3Ox superconducting coils

    SBC: Lupine Materials and Technology, Inc.            Topic: 27

    The particle accelerators and detectors needed for future high energy physics devices require magnetic fields higher than those that can be produced by the low-temperature superconductor (LTS) technologies used in present-day superconducting magnets (SCMs). High temperature superconductor (HTS) materials, however, have the potential to generate very high magnetic fields, offering a technological p ...

  10. Safety Software Assurance Compliance verification and Risk Evaluation (S-SACRE)

    SBC: Tri-Guard Risk Solutions, LTD            Topic: 30

    Most digital systems being software intensive are also vulnerable to attacks that exploit software weaknesses. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, “exploiting weaknesses in digital technology could be the most attractive route for those terrorists seeking to attack nuclear facilities without fear of interdiction.” Recent publicized events about cyber-attack on critical infrast ...
