  2. 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 ...

  6. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) require advanced technology capacitors, which must have low cost and the ability to operate at 150oC. However, current 150oC film capacitor solutions are expensive and have lower energy density compared to materials that operate at lower temperatures. Polypropylene Film Capacitors represent a potentially cost effective solution ...

  7. A New High-Resolution Method for the Characterization of Heterogeneous Subsurface Environments: Providing Flow and Transport Parameters via the Integration of MultiScale HydroGeophysical Data

    SBC: New England Research, Inc.            Topic: 49

    Historically, remediation efforts at DOE contaminated sites have relied on numerical models to integrate laboratory and field characterization data, predict the fate and transport behavior of contaminant plumes, design remediation protocols to mitigate contaminant migration, and analyze data from field remediation results. Of particular concern is the effect of subsurface heterogeneities and thei ...

  8. Knowledge-Based Multi-Diciplinary Optimization of Rocket Turbopump Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: AF04199

    The design of turbomachinery components is a complex process requiring many steps and hundreds of minute decisions in an iterative process. The design proceeds from engine cycle performance and meanline design through 3D viscous flow calculations (CFD) and finite element structural analysis (FEA). Design studies may traverse this process many times, with routine tasks performed by engineers in a ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Oxygen Sensor for Aircraft Fuel Tanks

    SBC: DAKOTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project will complete the development of an oxygen sensor that can be deployed inside aircraft fuel tanks. Such a sensor will be needed after the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) mandates the use of nitrogen-enriched air to prevent explosions like the one that destroyed TWA flight 800. Currently available oxygen sensors cannot withstand ...
