  2. Applications Using New Satellite Communications Constellations

    SBC: AVL TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF172009

    The objective of this program is to develop a practical and cost effective Active Electronically Steerable Array (AESA) for the purpose of Low and Medium Earth Orbit satellite networks. An AESA product would offer three distinct advantages over commonly used parabolic reflector antennas: 1. A low profile flat panel form factor, 2: Reduction (or possible elimination) of a mechanical positioning sys ...

  5. GDL Media Development for Improved PEM Fuel Cell Performance

    SBC: TECHVERSE, INC.            Topic: 17b

    Hydrogen fueled PEMFC stack systems for powering automobiles offer an excellent opportunity for the United States to reduce its dependence on foreign oil and to reduce emissions- However, cost of the fuel cell power system is still too high compared to the 2020 DOE target of $40/kW- The achievable stack power density is the single most dominant factor affecting cost of automotive stacks and it is ...

  7. An in-situ device to monitor root-soil-microbe interactions

    SBC: HI Fidelity Genetics, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Finding better ways to measure rhizosphere properties has the potential to transform agriculture. Better understanding of the root-microbe-soil interactions that characterize the rhizosphere will help reduce fertilizer, pesticide, and herbicide inputs, improve effective carbon dioxide sequestration, enhance biofuel crop production, and lead to more efficient farms with higher profitability. But th ...

  8. Novel Low Cost Two-dimensional Atomically Precise Covalent Organic Membranes

    SBC: NCO Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels has been dentified as one of the most important and difficult problems facing our society. The post combustion CO2 capture from flue gas is particularly challenging due to the relatively low pressure (1 atm) and high temperature (~70 ºC) of flue gas, and its small CO2 concentration (

  9. Wide-Range High-Boost Turbocharging System Using Advanced Aerodynamic Design Features

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Increasingly stringent exhaust emissions and fuel economy legislation is forcing automotive engine designers to: 1) demand increased pressure ratios from turbocharger compressors to ensure complete fuel combustion, 2) use Exhaust Gas Recirculation for emission reduction, and 3) reduce engine displacement while maintaining or even increasing output power to reduce fuel consumption. These three chan ...

  10. Drone Spatiotemporal Monitoring of F Area Radiation

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 16c

    Groundwater has value and is a renewable natural resource. However, when contaminated by activities (military or economic), groundwater can become unusable, nonrenewable, and create a moving hazard to the public. Developing detailed information about contamination migration supports policy decision-making by cost-benefit analysis. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of integrating drone m ...
