  1. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A10AT004

    Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...

  2. Photovoltaic cells integrated with thermoelectric coolers for critical electronic equipment cooling and thermal management of base camps

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT024

    Present thermoelectric devices operate at about 10% of the Carnot efficiency, whereas the efficiency of compressor-based refrigerators is larger than 30%. An increase in the thermoelectric figure of merit ZT above 3 is needed before thermoelectric technology can replace current air conditioning technologies in many applications. Recent models have predicted that ZT can reach 6 in metal/HgCdTe supe ...

  3. Passive Infrared Detection of Aerosolized Bacterial Spores

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT019

    The capability to reliably and remotely detect, identify and track biological aerosols is a critical need for the United States military. EPIR Technologies proposes to improve this capability by making use of the infrared signatures from biological aerosol broadband Mie scattering, comprising both mid and long wavelength infrared (MW/LWIR) components, as well as a potential polarization component. ...

  6. Random Number Generation for High Performance Computing

    SBC: Silicon Informatics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT012

    Highly scalable parallel random number generators (RNGs) will be developed, evaluated and implemented for use in high performance computing on thousands of multi-core processors and general purpose graphics processing units. The main contributions are: (a) design and implementation of new parallel test methods that capture the inter-stream correlations exhibited in practice and complement the curr ...

  7. Automated Support for the da Vinci Surgical System

    SBC: MIMIC TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT029

    Over 1,400 da Vinci systems are in use worldwide and the install base grows by more than 350 robots each year. While adoption has been rapid, there exists a wide variance in performance of surgical procedures, which has had a negative impact on care quality, cost and patient safety. This is due in part to inefficient training practices and limited mechanisms for objectively assessing surgical p ...

  8. Enhanced power density PEM fuel cells via activated reactants

    SBC: EntroPlus Technology Solutions & Services, LLC            Topic: A10AT011

    The overpotentials and inefficient electrochemical reactions are largely responsible for the lowered power density in polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) based H2/O2 fuel cells. Despite the use of large amounts of expensive precious metals (e.g. Platinum, Pt) the overall efficiency of PEM fuel cells are still about 50% only. The proposed project seeks to build on Entroplus's preliminary results o ...
