Research engineer Brian Giera, PhD, describes how data science techniques help collect and analyze data from advanced manufacturing processes in order to craft meaningful experiments.

Training realistically to respond to the threat of radiological terrorism is a real problem. Using actual radiological materials to train federal, state, and local agencies who detect and respond to these threats is extremely expensive, adds risk, and can’t replicate many of the scenarios of concern. LLNL’s Radiation Field Training Simulator (RaFTS) is a programmable device that injects realistic radiation source signals into suitably adapted operational radiation detection and identification devices (spectrometers). RaFTS enables highly realistic scenarios to simulate truly hazardous situations but without the need, expense or risks of using actual radiological material. In 2020, RaFTS was licensed by Argon Electronics Ltd (UK) to add significant capability to their line of CBRN hazard simulators.

The overuse of antibiotics in clinical and livestock settings is accelerating the selection of multidrug resistant bacterial pathogens. Antibiotic resistant bacteria result in increased mortality and financial strain on the health care and livestock industry. The development of new antibiotics has stalled, and novel strategies are needed as we enter the age of antibiotic resistance. Our product harnesses natural geochemical reactions using synthetic mineral that can kill antibiotic resistant pathogens, adsorb and degrade toxins and rejuvenate skin. Our product represents the first step in utilizing a geochemical process for cosmetic, clinical and animal markets in the age of antibiotic resistance.

With business applications moving to the cloud from traditional corporate networks, a crucial part of any organization’s cybersecurity is managing the users who can access their computers, networks, software applications and data. LLNL’s One ID technology is a cost-effective way to more easily manage a large organization’s enterprise security.

Join us to hear about innovation in materials for CO2 capture from biogas waste streams. Biogas is an underutilized energy source and LLNL research has the potential to change that. The team's successful results thus far are leading to scale up and field demonstrations for upgrading biogas from agricultural sources to compete in this $24B global market.

You will hear about a handheld gamma spectrometer for identifying radiation sources for nonproliferation and homeland security. The Mr. ID detector provides fast, accurate, sensitive radioisotope identification in a lightweight and robust form factor.

Join us to hear about the latest in CT image reconstruction and data processing. Medical imaging, industrial manufacturing inspection and airport luggage security rely on CT. LLNL researchers have developed an innovative software product that betters the competition in imaging fidelity.

Join us to hear about and discuss capabilities in computational sense and avoid strategies for radar-based sensors being developed at LLNL. We will talk about the potential of this solution to enable applications from Department of Defense UAS and robotic needs to commercial and personal package delivery and many more applications between.

You will get an inside look at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's Energetics Materials Center (EMC). Dr Lara Leininger, EMC Director, discusses the work that takes place in the LLNL energetic materials enterprise at the High Explosives Applications Facility and Site 300 Experimental Site, and how LLNL engages with commercial and government agencies.

You will hear about a compact and robust monolithic optical telescope. This extremely mature technology has been tested extensively from both air and space and shows commercialization promise in the next generation of earth-imaging smallsat constellations and the growing area of UAV-based inspection.

ALE3D is a multiphysics software tool used by researchers nationwide to solve various engineering and physics problems important to national security. Since its creation, ALE3D has been limited to U.S. citizens working on mission-relevant applications at Lawrence Livermore and other national laboratories, as well as the departments of Energy, Defense, and Homeland Security and their contractors. Now ALE3D-4I (ALE3D for Industry) can be widely shared with research partners interested in a much broader range of applications. Visit the ALE3D4I

You will hear about a new optical measurement technology being prototyped at LLNL promising an order of magnitude more resolution and recording length than is currently available on the market. This potentially disruptive innovation enables an entirely new measurement capability, targeting academic and research groups that observe ultrafast phenomenon.

You will hear about a new optical directing technology being prototyped at LLNL promising 10-100x higher speed and range as well as higher precision than is currently available on the market. The new design will enable next generation beam control in optical technologies such as high-speed focusable LIDAR and laser manufacturing.

Join us to hear about the LLNL breakthrough telecommunications fiber optical amplifier which promises to open up new bandwidth for the relentless growth in internet data traffic without having to bury new fiber optic cables. The new LLNL amplifier, the first practical implementation of its kind, opens up the untapped E-band which potentially doubles the data transmission capacity of existing fiber installations.

You will hear about the LLNL cryocompressed hydrogen storage innovation and Energy I-Corps developed business model. Many hydrogen projects are recently making their way to the market. LLNL researchers have shown that cryocompressed storage can potentially double the range without increasing the tank fill time in the medium and heavy duty vehicle market.
