  1. User-Friendly 3D Environmental Profiler AUV

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 813

    We propose Ranger ES, a low cost, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for three-dimensional profiling and water samplings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters of oceanic and fresh waters. The AUV will be programmable by point and click to analyze a volume of water continuously for the selected parameters. After returning for pickup after a day¿s run, it will download its data into a ...

  2. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  3. Handheld FT-IR/Photoacoustic Chemical Agent Detector

    SBC: MANNING APPLIED TECHNOLOGY            Topic: CBD05112

    Manning Applied Technology proposes development of the MP-100 handheld FT-infrared photoacoustic chemical agent detector, following a highly successful Phase I effort. Chemical attacks and accidents can be mitigated partially by cost-effective sensors. High priority programs will benefit from a sensor compliant to Joint Warning & Reporting Network (JWARN) standards. The device is ideally suited to ...

  4. Superconducting RF Photocathode Gun for Low Emittance Polarized ELectron Beams

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 37

    A radio frequency (RF) photoemission source that delivers polarized electrons at low emittance would be an attractive electron source for a linear collider. Moreover, it has been demonstrated recently that such a source, in conjunction with nearby injection-system optics, can deliver a beam with a high ratio of transverse emittances, leading to a simplification or elimination of a linear collider ...

  5. Nano-Engineered High Current Density YBCO Superconducting Wires

    SBC: AMBP Technology Corporation            Topic: 03

    Second generation, coated superconductor wires (YBCO material), needed for electricity transmission, have demonstrated the ability to produce 100 Amp, long-length conductors at approximately 10 times the cost of copper wires. This cost is unacceptable. In order to meet the DOE¿s cost target of $10/kA-m, significant improvements in current-carrying-density capability will be required, with a tar ...

  6. Silicon on Insulator Pixel Detector for the Linear Collider

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: 41

    The current generation of hybrid particle detectors at the International Linear Collider (ILC) falls well short of meeting the mass and resolution requirements: mass less than 0.1 radiation length/layer, resolution speed in the range of

  7. Advanced H-/D- Surface Plasma Source with Helicon Discharge Plasma Generator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: 48

    For the past several years, government laboratories and industrial companies in many countries around the world have had ongoing research programs to develop negative ion sources with upgraded intensity, emittance, and lifetime. However, their research has not resulted in a source that can deliver the desired parameters. This project will develop an advanced Surface Plasma Negative Ion Source wi ...

  8. Cost-Effective Acoustic-Stirling Cryocooler with Flexibly Attached Remote Coldhead


    High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) devices, needed for the modernization and expansion of America¿s electricity delivery system, require efficient, reliable, and affordable cryogenic cooling of large cryostats. Commercial cryocoolers of appropriate capacity and temperature for transformers and cables miss the target on one or more of these parameters. This project will continue the developm ...

  9. Integrated Scalable Parallel Firewall and Instrusion Detection System for High-Speed Networks

    SBC: Great Wall Systems            Topic: 44

    A number of simulataneous trends (ever-increasing network speeds and throughput, escalating sophistication of attacks, regulatory initiatives, and integration of networks within and without the enterprise) can cause both bottlenecks and quality-of-service degradation within the firewalls of computing systems used by the DOE and large corporations. This project will develop an advanced, scalable, ...

  10. Low Noise SQUID Array Amplifiers for High Speed Applications

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 47

    A low-noise amplifier chip, based on Superconducting QUantum Interference Device (SQUID) technology, is needed for the high speed instrumentation used in nuclear physics experiments. SQUIDs are ultra-high-speed devices that are extremely sensitive detectors of magnetic flux. They dissipate very low power and, as a result, can be instrumented with detectors in situations where low power dissipati ...
