Breakthrough technology developed by researchers from Lockheed Martin Idaho
Technologies Company have been selected as winners of prestigious Research and
Development 100 Awards. Three groups of researchers were selected for the honor
from only 100 awards presented internationally.
The winning Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory entries are
- "Electro-Optic High Voltage Sensor," by Thomas Crawford, James Davidson and
Gary Seifert. This INEEL-developed sensor technology provides smaller, safer,
cheaper ways to provide electricity.
- "Rapid Solidification Process (RSP) Tooling," by Kevin McHugh. This technology
promises to reduce the cost and lead time for producing tooling and shortening
the time it takes industry to get products to market.
- "Malt-based Antimicrobial," by Karen B. Barrett. This represents a major
breakthrough in pesticide research and is easily and inexpensively produced.
The 36th annual competition conducted by R&D Magazine recognizes 100
technologically significant products developed over the past year by the world's
most creative scientists and engineers.
"This is great news for the laboratory. I am proud of the accomplishments of
these scientists and the recognition it brings to the INEEL," says John
Wilcynski, Department of Energy Idaho Operations Office manager.
John Denson, LMITCO president says, "These awards show the world we have
excellent research talent here at the INEEL. This recognition gives us a chance
to recognize their creative spirit and hard work. These projects are three
examples of the INEEL's growing contributions to technology development in a
variety of areas."
Safely Measures High Voltage
The Electro-optic High-Voltage Sensor (EOHVS) is a safe, small, non-electric,
optical sensor that uses photons instead of electrons to measure high voltages
on power lines. The most unique aspect of this technology is that the sensor
does not have to be in electricalPage: 1 2 3 4 5 Related medicine news :1
