  1. Novel electrochemical membrane reactor for synthesis of NH3 from air and water at low temperature and low pressure

    SBC: Molecule Works Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    This proposal aims to develop a new, compact reactor for production of ammonia from air and water with renewable electricity. The conversion is carried out in a solid-state alkaline electrochemical cell at temperatures below 200oC and pressures below 10bar. Water vapor and N2 gas are fed into cathode side of the cell to form ammonia and hydroxide ions. As ammonia is produced from the cathode, the ...

  2. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  3. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: DTRA14B001

    Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...

  4. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  7. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...
