  1. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  2. Photonic Crystal Based Optical Analog-to-Digital Converter

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF07T028

    As the required data bandwidth and processing speed for commercial or military applications grows rapidly, the required performance of analog-to-digital conversion also expands. Regardless of the speed of signal processing hardware or software, the basic solution always gravitates toward an ultimate ADC design. Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are widely viewed as a bottleneck in high-performan ...

  3. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...

  4. Improved Radio Frequency (RF) Polymer Substrates for Antennas

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: AF071134

    Leveraging Spectrum Magnetics’ expertise in large scale fabrication of nanomaterials by gas phase aerosol technologies, supported by University of Delaware’s leading edge research in magnetodielectric materials with simultaneously large permittivity and permeability in GHz, we propose to fabricate and optimize RF polymers that promise applications in antenna with much improved loss tangent, wi ...

  5. Nuclear Physics Particle and Radiation Detection Systems, Nuclear Targets and High Radiation Environment Beam Transport Components

    SBC: APPLIED DIAMOND, INC.            Topic: 26

    Longer-lived stripper foils operating in present-day DOE accelerator facilities, with elements up to mass 100, would provide substantial operating savings and reduced radiation exposure to maintenance personnel. However, the next generation of rare isotope facilities would need even more robust stripper foils to survive exposure to higher-power density beams of even heavier elements, up to uraniu ...

  6. High Temperature Membrane Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 08b

    Membrane reactors have the potential to improve the reactivity, productivity, and energy efficiency of various chemical syntheses including transesterification. To be of value, the membrane reactors must provide a higher use temperature, improved chemical resistance and better mass transfer. This project will evaluate the use of a high temperature, high mass transfer membrane system to enhance t ...

  7. Dewatering Membrane for Hazy Hydrodesulfurization Unit Effluents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Refinery product streams, particularly those from Ultra Low Hydrodesulfurisation units, are prone to haze due to water emulsions. Hazy fuel cannot be used until the haze is removed, which creates costly scheduling and shipping delays. This project will develop a novel membrane process to rapidly remove fuel haze in real time. The process would be expected to operate on a once-through basis. Ph ...

  8. Stabilizing Hydraulic Fluid by Removing Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 21

    In the electrical power, steel production, and aluminum production industries, flame retardant, phosphate-ester hydraulic fluids are used to minimize fires. Although these fluids accomplish the fire-minimization task, they are unstable, which causes performance to suffer with attendant losses in productivity. This project will develop novel, chemically-resistant high-flux membranes that can remo ...

  9. Enhanced Distillation via Membranes for Elimination of Trapped Water

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 21

    Distillation is a major chemical unit operation and consumer of significant energy. Often, water or some other intermediate boiling component can become trapped within the distillation column and accumulate. This causes various operating difficulties such as flooding, slugging, cycling, instability, and off-spec product. This project will develop a chemically-resistant, non-porous, water-ventin ...

  10. Novel Platform for Enhanced Membrane Reactors for Homogeneous Catalysis

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 23

    Membrane reactors have been proposed for a number of syntheses. However, to be competitive with conventional technologies, membrane reactors must provide better selectivity, permeability, and stability. This project will develop a novel platform with enhanced membrane permeability and stability, as needed for broad membrane reactor utilization. In Phase I, a chemically resistant membrane reacto ...
