PNNL researchers developed two web-based tools to assess and mitigate cyberthreats to utilities—inside and outside their firewalls. Both are low cost and can be used by control room operators who are not cybersecurity experts.
The Facility Cybersecurity toolkit, developed by PNNL, is designed for federal facilities to help implement the presidential executive order on cybersecurity, but it is also available for commercial facilities without charge.
PNNL researchers established an Internet of Things Common Operating Environment (IoTCOE) laboratory to explore the risks associated with IoT connectivity to the internet, the energy grid and other critical infrastructures.
Tracking down nefarious users is just one example of work at PNNL’s Center for Advanced Technology Evaluation, a computing proving ground supported by DOE’s Advanced Scientific Computing Research program.
Using a large repository of blood samples from military personnel, PNNL and Uniformed Services University scientists have discovered a group of 13 proteins that could provide early detection of head and neck cancers.
The Ocean Observing Prize is a competitive incentive program to help inventors advance new concepts for marine energy technologies that can power ocean observing systems, particularly those that inform us about hurricane formation.
In recognition of Nuclear Science Week on Oct. 19-23, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory reflects on more than half a century of advancing nuclear science for the nation’s energy, environment, and security frontiers.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers used machine learning to explore the largest water clusters database, identifying—with the most accurate neural network—important information about this life-essential molecule.
Researchers at PNNL have increased the conductivity of copper wire by about five percent via a process called Shear Assisted Processing and Extrusion. General Motors tested the wire for application in vehicle motor components.
Each summer, PNNL invites middle and high school STEM teachers from nearby underrepresented and underserved rural communities from the Mid-Columbia Basin region to participate in the Teacher-Scientist Partnership.
PNNL deployed two research buoys in waters off the West Coast for the first time in deep water, supporting a DOE and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management effort to gather measurements that support offshore wind locations and technologies.
