  1. A Highly Miniaturized Cloud and Aerosol Instrument Package for Small UAV's

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: 19a

    The 2013 report from the International Panel on Climate Change states that the spatial extent of Arctic sea ice has decreased in every season, and in every successive decade since 1979. Arctic summer sea ice retreat is unprecedented (9.4 to 13.6% per decade). Numerical simulations predict a nearly ice-free summertime Arctic after the middle of the 21st century. It is now well established that ...

  2. A New Sorbent Process for Transformational Carbon Capture Process

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18d

    The electricity produced from fossil fuels is essential to the world’s prosperity and security, but the increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations caused by the fossil fuel combustion are implicated in global warming.Although there are several methods for separating CO2 from the flue gases, all have significant drawbacks, including loss of efficiency and increased capital and operating costs that ...

  3. A High Temperature, High Data Rate, “Smart” Dynamic Pressure Sensor for Advanced Ground Turbine Controls and Health Monitoring

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 19e

    Fossil energy (FE)-based systems are able to achieve higher efficiencies, lower emissions, and improved reliability and availability (lower total operating costs), through advanced controls enabled by real-time sensor measurements and data processing. Within turbines, the monitoring of high speed pressure fluctuations within compressor and combustion sections can be used as part of active control ...

  4. A Microfluidic Ice Nucleating Particle Counter for Continuous Measurements from Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  5. ASSESSMENT OF 10(14) GATE-HZ/CM(2) CHARGE-MODE LOGIC FOR SUPERCOMPUTERS

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CHARGE-MODE DIGITAL LOGIC APPEARS TO HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL AS A BUILDING BLOCK FOR FUTURE SUPERCOMPUTERS. ITS EXTREMELY HIGH COMPUTATIONAL DENSITY, ESTIMATED AT 2 X 10(14) GATE-HZ/CM(2), IS ACHIEVABLE AT 2 MINIMUM FEATURES USING CONVENTIONAL, OPTICAL LITHOGRAPHY. BY CONTRAST, DOD'S VHSIC II PROGRAM GOAL IS 1 X 10(13) GATE-HZ/CM(2) AND REQUIRES 0.5 UPSILON M FEATURES. WITH CHARGE-MODE LOGIC, MORE TH ...

  6. Design and Simulation of Capillary Discharge Plasmas for Next Generation Plasma Wakefield Accelerators

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 23b

    Fundamental improvements to the energy, brightness, and stability of lepton beams from next generation plasma-based accelerators are essential to maintain rapid innovation and scientific productivity within the field of advanced accelerators.Meeting these goals requires improvements in the design and control of the plasmas used for injection and acceleration.Laser plasma accelerators benefit from ...

  7. Development of a Profiling Microwave Radiometer for Offshore Wind Farms, Further Characterization of Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 16a

    The life expectancy of offshore wind turbines is at least 20 years, during which they must operate optimally with respect to power production, minimization of mechanical stresses, plant wake distribution, and more, in a range of atmospheric conditions.These conditions are currently observed using meteorological masts, which provide inadequate observations, thus resulting in suboptimal turbine desi ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A TOTAL PEROXY DETECTOR FOR FLAME AND COMBUSTION MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF AN INSTRUMENT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY OF MEASURING THE CONCENTRATION OF OXY AND PEROXY FREE RADICALS IN COMBUSTION STUDIES. THE DETECTOR FOR THE INSTRUMENT IS BASED ON AN AMBIENT FREE RADICAL DETECTOR WHICH USES AN AMPLIFICATION CHAIN REACTION BETWEEN THE FREE RADICALS AND CO AND NO WHICHRES ...

  9. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Every year, the global wind industry loses an estimated $100M or more to damage caused by lightning.A new blade coating will reduce the damage to wind turbine blades caused by lightning by promoting the formation of ionization channels over the surface of the turbine blades, providing a safe external path for lightning energy to reach ground and preventing damaging blade punctures.The coating cons ...

  10. Direct Combustion of Fine Coal from Coal Waste

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Fine coal is a coal waste generated by washing the coal at the mines, and contains as much as 80 wt% water. Due to the lack of cost effective approaches to remove the water from fine coal before feeding into a conventional boiler, the coal producers often choose to discard the fine coal. There are already approximately 2 billion tons of fine coal in abandoned ponds and 500~800 million tons in acti ...
