  1. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM13004

    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentrics wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. In ...

  2. TTDAQ: A Continuous Flow, Timing and Trigger DAQ System

    SBC: Telluric Labs LLC            Topic: 28b

    The nuclear physics data acquisition systems are challenged by the increasing demand for flexibility, accuracy, volume of data and processing speed, massive scalability, upgradability, and lower acquisition operations and maintenance costs. General precision timing synchronization for all Detector and DAQ components provides novel and original solutions to these problems especially if it can be ac ...

  3. Asynchronous Many Task Fast Exascale Visualizer- AMT FEVER

    SBC: JMSI INC.            Topic: 07a

    The simulations on which we depend must adapt to changing hardware to run at exascale. The Asynchronous Many Task (AMT) model is a viable alternative to existing techniques and has numerous advantages. In situ data visualization and analysis remains an important fixture of computing for exascale so these algorithms must be expressed in terms of AMT so they will be compatible with emerging computin ...

  4. Mixed Metal Oxide Catalysts for the Production of Aromatic Derivatives

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Aromatics are the main building blocks for petrochemical products and intermediates. With the majority of US crackers switching to natural gas liquids, aromatics supply from crackers has fallen in recent years. In 2017, US imported more than 1.8 million tons of benzene mainly due to the shift to a very light feedstock (mainly ethane) in steam crackers. As a result, the aromatics industry will be i ...

  5. Multiplexed Signal Recovery for Ultrafast Diagnostics

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 24b

    There is a growing need for high bandwidth (greater than 2 terahertz) long duration optical waveform measurement in telecommunications, laser development, and data collection from optically encoded sensors.Sensor monitoring requires multiplexing multiple sensors for cost reduction.The system must also be able to completely characterize laser driver pulses at multiple locations, providing the inten ...

  6. Silicon Carbide (SiC) Foam for Molten Salt Containment in CSP-Gen3 Systems

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: 18c

    Phase I analysis results show that in order to potentially meet the round trip and exergetic efficiencies as required by the Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technology Office, for thermal energy storage in concentrated solar plants, a composite of porous silicon carbide and molten salt phase change material is needed.For a 100 megawatt (electrical) concentrated solar power plant with 12 hour ...

  7. Collaborative VR/AR Data Visualization Tool

    SBC: Woodruff Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Computational physicists and diagnosticians need to analyze 3D data to gain understanding of their simulations or diagnostic results.Visualizing 3D Physics effects by use of 2D screens can limit understanding or even create misunderstandings.Communication of results between collaborators can be difficult when using 2D images or movies, sent by email with written explanations: one finds oneself rep ...

  8. HYPERTUNNEL- A MR/VR Remote Collaboration System

    SBC: FactualVR, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    An important challenge electric utilities will face in the foreseeable future is a workforce that is rapidly retiring and the resulting loss of institutional knowledge.This will also create a vulnerability in the electric grid, especially during widespread power outages where recovery efforts rely on a team of well-trained and experienced personnel.Disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico hig ...

  9. Revisiting Pipe Component Design

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 33j

    Under recent economic pressures, the nuclear power industry has explored options to reduce costs and increase electricity generation. One overlooked area where lost power output can be recaptured and attendant problems (e.g., flow-induced vibration) addressed is the main steam piping system. The technology underlying this system is essentially over a 100 years old, and incentives to improve pipe c ...

  10. Catalytic Oxidative Upcycling of Plastic Waste and Heat Integration using Chemical Looping Systems

    SBC: Bio2Electric, LLC            Topic: 08b

    Plastics, or polymers, are ubiquitous, resilient and low-cost materials with wide-reaching applications from healthcare to construction. However, as plastics production has increased twenty-fold over the last 50 years and much of the waste ends up in the environment and in ever- growing landfills, leading to a mounting ecological and economic problem. Only a small quantity of waste plastics is rec ...
