  1. PROCESS MODIFICATION TO MINIMIZE TOXIC CHEMICAL GENERATION IN VERMICULITE PROCESSING

    SBC: Enoree Minerals Corp.            Topic: N/A

    IN 1985, 947 BILLION GALLONS OF WATER WERE CONTAMINATED WITH1.4 BILLION POUNDS OF CHMICAL REAGENTS IN FROTH FLOTATION SEPARATION OF INDUSTRIAL MINERALS IN THE UNITED STATES. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT THESE APPROXIMATE QUANTITIES WERE ALSO USED IN 1986 AND 1987. OF THIS TOTAL, APPROXIMATELY 42.2 MILLION GALLONS OF WATER WERE CONTAMINATED WITH 8.6 MILLION POUNDS OF CHEMICAL REAGENTS IN VERMICULITE FROTH ...

  2. Optical Fiber COupled Integrated High-Low Energy Laser

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is concerned with the development of an integrated laser system which can deliver both intense high energy laser pulses and low energy high peak power pulses from the same device. The purpose of such a device would be the use of high energy pulses for the ignition of a pyrotechnic or propellant from a remote location through a fiberoptic. T ...

  3. Multi-Band Fluorescence Imaging for Wide Area Detection of Land Mines, Unexploded Ordnance, and Other Contaminants

    SBC: Newtec Services Group, Inc            Topic: N/A

    NEWTEC Services Group, Inc. proposes that a safe, expedient, and cost effective means of reclaiming contaminated lands from landmines and UXO can be achieved through the implementation of engineered plant-based fluorescent bioreporters. This technology isbased upon a previous microbial mine detection program, where microbes would excite and fluoresce in the presence of TNT vapors from UXO and lan ...

  4. Compact Laser Igniter for Medium Caliber Cannon

    SBC: MEGAWATT LASERS            Topic: N/A

    Medium caliber cannons, such as the Army's M230 chain gun, currently utilize a high current electrical pulse to initiate the propellant. While electrical ignition is reliable, electrical based primers are susceptible to premature ignition from EMI, EMP, orother stray or directed electromagnetic sources. In the event of a weapon jam, electrically initiated primers are dangerous as the potential for ...

  5. Plasma Wave Electronics

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: ARMY03T06

    Terahertz plasma wave detectors and emitters utilizing the high-density 2-D electrons in submicron AlGaInN/GaN-based Quantum Well Heterostructure Field Effect Transistors (QW-HFETs)with high-sensitivity levels for the sensing of terahertz (THz) frequency electromagnetic radiation are proposed and developed.

  6. Develop New Innovative Filtration Designs and Components for Improved Service Life, Performance and Durability

    SBC: MILOW LTD.            Topic: A03231

    The concept of improving the service-life, performance and durability of air filters by replacement of disposable fiber air filters with permanently installed self–cleaning filters that can be cleaned by air blast in the opposite direction without removing the filter from its canister was proposed for Phase I. A lab model of a self-cleaning filter made from plastic discs that form micro-passage ...

  7. InGaN-Channel Heterostructure Field Effect Transistor With Double Recessed Gate for Improved RF Performance

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: A04048

    Sensor Electronic Technology Inc. proposes to develop a new epitaxial layer design with ternary (InGaN) and quaternary (AlInGaN) stop etch layers for double recess device fabrication. We already demonstrated significant improvement in the RF performance of AlGaN/InGaN/AlGaN/GaN-based HFETs with the recessed gate design. We used our novel Migration Enhanced MOCVD (MEMOCVDTM) deposition technique ...

  8. Optimal Design of Compact Fuel Cell Hybrid Power Systems

    SBC: INTERACTIVE DATA VISUALIZATION            Topic: A06T014

    This work will continue the use of numerical methods to determine optimal design parameters for a compact hybrid fuel cell power system driven by a statistically determined load profile. Detailed physics-based models will be used to represent the bahavior of the components in the hybrid system. The components considered in the hybrid system for Phase II will be a PEM fuel cell, Li-ion batteries an ...

  9. High-Strength Low-Cost Polymer Fibers for Protective Clothing and Equipment, Shelters and Airdrop Equipment

    SBC: INNEGRITY LLC            Topic: A06171

    The goal of this SBIR Phase II project is to test develop high-strength, low-cost fibers for protective clothing and equipment, shelters and airdrop equipment using commodity olefin polymer materials in a unique fiber production process.

  10. High Energy Laser Component Technology for Eye-Safer Fiber Lasers

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: A08137

    Traditional diode end pumped single mode fiber laser designs are limited in terms laser power pumping and energy extraction. Double clad large mode area fibers are easier to scale up and typically utilize fiber delivered diode pumping at various laser gain length intervals in order to overcome fiber aperture power density limitations. Even with such improvements, current high power fiber lasers ...
