Safer Energetic Materials
01/17/18 02:38 PM EST
Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory have developed energetic materials that are capable of delivering powerful explosive energy, yet demonstrate unprecedented improvements for safer storage, handling, transportation and operation. INL investigators are also working to increase the safety of ignition devices to ensure energetics detonate only when required.
Ghost Train Generator
01/17/18 02:33 PM EST
Fermilab has developed a simple, inexpensive, effective device to reduce collision incidents related to vehicles stuck on railroad grade crossings. The device simulates continuity of locomotives or other rolling stock from rail to rail, closing the existing DC track circuit and mimicking the presence of a train.
Boron Based Special Materials
