  3. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  7. Portfolio Level Energy-Efficiency Simulation (PLES) Platform

    SBC: Maalka Inc.            Topic: 09c

    There exists a lack of integrated software solutions for enabling cost-effective energy management, modeling, and simulation for building portfolios.While building energy modeling solutions exist, they do not integrate with platforms commonly used for data management, are not easily customizable, and are cost-prohibitive when applied to portfolio scales.As a result, governments, utilities, and pri ...

  8. Highly Efficient Smart Tanks for Hydrogen Storage

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The commercial success of the Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles will require significant reductions in the cost of hydrogen fueling.Current fueling stations require pre-cooling equipment that chills the hydrogen to -40°C; this is needed to offset the temperature rise caused by compression during fueling and keep the polymer liner of the vehicle’s tank below its maximum operating temperature of 85?C.I ...
