  1. High efficiency materials&processes for the reduction of CO2 to syngas

    SBC: Liquid Light, Inc            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: Liquid Light and Princeton University will develop an electrochemical process for syngas evolution that uses carbon dioxide and water as the feedstocks. Syngas evolved from the system will then be converted to JP-8 via existing Fischer-Tropsch systems. The syngas evolution process will be based on heterocyclic catalysts originally discovered at Princeton University. Research in Phase I ...

  3. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: Zircon Computing LLC            Topic: OSD11T03

    The main challenges outlined in the acquisition program objectives are: 1. API abstraction is inadequate for complex architectures 2. Multi-core architectures are non-portable across hardware/OS 3. Testing and validation of concurrent code are complex and hard to model We already have a product called zNet, which is on the market and solves most of the above challenges. 1. zNet uses a ...

  4. In-Line Sandwich of Silicon-based Photon-Counting Night Vision Sensor, Amplifier and Display

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: AF112018

    ABSTRACT: Currently fielded night vision goggles intensify images in an integrated components train comprising a photo cathode, a multi-channel plate for amplification, and a phosphor screen. A purely semiconductor-based night vision device with higher performance, longer lifetime and lower cost is desirable. Built upon proven semiconductor nano-technologies, the proposed Photon Counting Integ ...

  8. Multi-scale and Multi-functional Self Healing Fiber Reinforced Composites

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: AF112106

    ABSTRACT: Fiber reinforced composites (FRCs) are attractive structural materials for Air Force applications due to their high strength to weight ratios. Multi-functional self-healing FRCs will advance the state of the art in Air Force applications that either currently use FRCs, or will use FRCs in the future. The multi-functionality, as introduced through dispersed and aligned carbon nanotubes ( ...
