  1. A High Efficiency SACI 1 kW Generator System with Integrated Waste Energy Recovery

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste energy recovery (WER) from ICE exhaust enables the overa ...

  3. Flexible CPU-GPU computational plasma applications with particles and fluids

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: SB143002

    Theoretical computing speeds have increased dramatically in the last decade with chip advances, including Graphics Processor Units (GPUs).In practice, however, these gains have not been realized, largely due to the accompanying high development costs due to the need for multiple code bases to take advantage of the various chips and their variants.The proposed project addresses these issues from bo ...

  4. Broadband Self-Calibrating Electric Field Sensors Based on Alkali Rydberg Atoms

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB152003

    ColdQuanta proposes the development of compact electric field sensors that operate from 1 to 1000 GHz and feature absolute accuracy better than 1%. These devices will utilize highly excited Rydberg atoms that are exceptionally sensitive to RF, microwave, and millimeter radiation. Featuring sensitivities of a few uV/cm, the accuracy of these devices will be at least one order of magnitude better t ...

  8. Novel Detection Mechanisms for Advanced Persistent Threats

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: OSD12IA4

    The Department of Defense (DoD) is supported by a vast global network of computers, sensors, and equipment that is continually at risk of being breached by adversaries. Such cyber elements comprise an important part of the DoDs military readiness and the loss or degradation of such elements would reduce key advantages in communication, intelligence, and organization. Despite heavy investments in s ...

  9. Low Cost Expendable Launch Technology

    SBC: ROCKET LAB USA, INC.            Topic: SB152008

    Rocket Lab USA, Inc. proposes to develop and demonstrate how the use of the Electron launch vehicle either as an upper stage in support of the XS-1 program or dedicated small launch vehicle could employ the use of Automated Flight Termination (AFTS) technologies to reduce the cost of access to space without adversely impacting public safety. Providing the launch opportunity to obtain flight telem ...

  10. Chromate-Free Fuel Tank Coating

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF141168

    ABSTRACT:Current aircraft fuel tank coatings provide excellent corrosion protection but do so by incorporating chromates.Unfortunately, these hexavalent chromates are carcinogens, and their use and disposal is strictly regulated.An ideal aircraft fuel tank coating would provide effective corrosion protection without the use of chromates.In this SBIR project TDA will develop a chromate free, room t ...
