  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Non-destructive, Functional Metabolic Imaging of Plant and Microbial Systems

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Functional metabolic imaging of plant and microbial systems requires a sensitive, high spatial resolution microscopy method that can image metabolically important compounds in situ. This will require new chemically sensitive imaging methods to be developed. In this SBIR/STTR, we will develop a new coherent Raman-based microscopy technique that will improve ensitivity over existing stimulated Raman ...

  5. Ground-based Water Vapor Atmospheric Vertical Profiler

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 25b

    Detailed accurate data on temperature variations and water vapor concentration distributions are needed for weather and climate forecasting. Water vapor is particularly important for predicting precipitation amounts from storms. Measurements are needed from the ground to the top of the troposphere at about 10 km altitude. Existing ground-based instruments often have measurement uncertainties due t ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 3e Swept External Cavity Quantum Cascade Lasers for Remote Detection

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: 03e

    Rapid and sensitive remote detection of chemicals remains a challenging and currently unmet need for a wide range of monitoring and sensing applications. Remote detection is needed when it is not possible or practical to obtain samples for analysis of chemicals in a laboratory, and thus measurements must be performed without physical access to the source release point. In particular, quantitative ...

  9. Development of nickel rich and concentration gradient cathode materials for high energy density and long cycle-life lithium ion batteries using controlled micro-aerosol pyrolysis

    SBC: Hit Nano, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are promising candidates for next-generation energy storage and electrified transportation systems. However, continuous growth of cobalt price, low energy density, short lifetime, and high propensity in fire accidents of LIBs creates a big challenge to renewable electricity production and electrification of transportation. Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop ...

  10. Zero discharge desalination with mineral recovery using multiple-effect vapor adsorption

    SBC: GreenBlu, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Desalination is a key tool to address the global water scarcity crisis. Current technologies cannot meet the need for desalination due to high energy demands and toxic brine discharge. For example, global electricity production would need to increase by 5% to power current desalination plants. No commercially viable solutions exist for treating brine, therefore is often discharged into the environ ...
