  1. N/A

    SBC: BIODE, INC.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase II 1999 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. Isini Treatment of Acid Mine Drainage

    SBC: Burnett Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The Air Force desires compact, intelligent optical sensors for use on satellites and other unmanned space vehicles. Intelligent sensors combine detection, processing, and control functions onto a single package to allow for autonomous detection and interpretation of optical signals. A specific case where an intelligent optical system is needed is in the detection, processing, and ev ...

  3. Process for Recovery and Recycling of Chromium from Spent Chromium Oxide Fluorination Catalyst

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    Not Available In this Phase I proposal we outline a plan to develop a novel phase conjugate laser system capable of locking and tracking remote objects. The proposed system uses a pulsed laser with an intra-cavity four-wave mixing configuration. In this proposal we outline the operational principles of the system, showing how velocity and position of the target can be accurately measured. During ...

  4. Chemiresistor Microsensors for Environmental Monitoring Systems


    Not Available We propose to develop latching micro-magnetic relays based on the geometry-dependant magnetization of permalloy cantilevers. Two stable states ( on and off ) in a micro-relay controlled by an external magnet have been demonstrated. An integrated coil will be designed and fabricated with the relay to achieve the electronic switching between the two stable states. To meet the Air Fo ...

  5. N/A


    Not Available Thick-film Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) wafers are now being used to manufacture a variety of electronic products. Reliable manufacturing of advanced SOI-based products requires accurate characterization tools. Presently, the semiconductor industry lacks the necessary instrumentation to non-destructively characterize and qualify SOI wafers with silicon layers thicker than several micr ...

  6. New Inert Anodes for Reduction of Perfluorocarbon Emissions


    Not Available The Air Force has identified the need for a small, inexpensive inertial attitude reference system that functions as a two-axis optical reference in high performance aircraft applications. Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes the Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) Inertial Reference Unit (MIRU) to meet the requirement. The MIRU will integrate innovative and emerging technologies of in ...

  7. A Novel Approach to Prevention of Acid Rock Drainage

    SBC: Little Bear Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The Project objective is the concept definition of a novel architecture for cross-linking a LEO cluster of small satellites, flying in close formation and collaboratively performing shared/distributed processing missions. This effort conceptualizes and evaluates satellite local area networks (S-LANs) employing a Central Network Administrator (MotherSat) for network control and a fre ...

  8. Real-Time Analytical Technology for Environmental Applications

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Existing rocket engines use multiple auxiliary power systems (electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic) to provide power for valves, actuators, flight controls, propellant pumps and electrical systems. The size, weight and complexity of these systems detracts from many aspects of rocket performance. A lightweight source of abundant electrical power could allow us to replace these multipl ...

  9. An Economical Alternative for Sorting Polymers on the Small materials Recovery Facility (MRF) Level

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Propellant technologies are of the most crucial to revolutionize aerospace propulsion in the next century. New propellants strive to make spacecraft safer, more operable and higher performing. Propellant technologies have the power to make space flight more affordable and deliver higher performance. Propellants for in space maneuvering need to be ignited to release its chemical ener ...
