  1. Model Level Integrated Simulation Architecture for Collaborative Development

    SBC: Rtsync Corp.            Topic: MDA18012

    We propose to develop a simulation architecture framework that enables development teams to integrate algorithmic models into a simulation solely through a collaboration layer/interface and software controls. The proposed architecture will address: ease of model integration, model composability, execution speed, and ease of data collection and retrieval. To achieve these objectives, we propose tha ...

  2. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  3. Smart Sensor for Aquaculture Nitrogen Using Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: ENERTREX CORP.            Topic: 87

    The country increasingly seeks locally produced, healthy food. Shrimp can provide significantly to these desires while reducing dependence on imports and enabling creation of jobs in all strata of society.To realize these benefits, the cost of shrimp production needs to be reduced to meet the existing competitive market. The success of our project will bring high-technology at low cost to a key co ...

  4. Ethanol Dual-Fuel Engine Retrofits to Displace Diesel Usage in Farm Equipment

    SBC: ClearFlame Engines, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Diesel engines are critical to the agriculture sector--and in many other applications--due to their strong performance and vaunted durability. However, despite their many benefits, these engines are tied to the dirty emissions and price volatility of Diesel fuel. This Diesel dependence puts pressure on manufacturers to meet increasingly stringent emissions standards, and forces users to accept inc ...

  5. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  6. Culturally Aware Entrepreneurial Education

    SBC: Independent Platform, LLC            Topic: 86

    This proposal is a response to the Rural and Community Development needs outlined in the RFP to focus on efforts needed to enhance human capital development, build earnings capacity, increase labor force participation and/or promote job creation to the most vulnerable populations in rural communities. The Navajo community drastically underperforms the nation in creation of businesses and jobs for ...
