  5. Development of Flow-Pattern Manipulator for Membraneless Seawater Desalination

    SBC: ThermoFlow Labs, LLC            Topic: 21a

    By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in places with severe water scarcity and two-thirds of the global population will encounter some degree of water stress. If warming continues at the current pace, by 2030 half of the world’s population will experience severe water stress (Runte 2016). The demands are strong; the restraints, on the other hand, come from (1) high capital investment for eq ...

  6. An Analytical Technology Platform to Identify Symbiotic Interactions Between PGPR and Root Microbiome Members from Biofuel Feedstocks

    SBC: Powers & Zahr, LLC            Topic: 22a

    The overall goal of this STTR proposal is to establish a commercial microwell technology for high-throughput screening and characterization of interactions that are critical to plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) survival and function. PGPR can be used to improve crop stress tolerance by enhancing root function; providing nutrient uptake, nitrogen fixation, hormone regulation, and suppress ...

  9. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li-foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625-cm2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to outperform the standards set by the ANSI N42.53 standards, and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrometer for isotope ...

  10. ICE Ignition Using Transient Plasma Acceleration

    SBC: ARC TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: 17e

    Lean-burn gasoline engines have difficulty reliably igniting fuel mixtures at sufficiently high air to fuel ratios. Common ignition systems are based on a spark gap driven by a pulse transformer ignition coil). Unfortunately, these systems have small plasma excitation areas, are slow, wear down the spark plug electrodes, and are not suitable for high pressure engines. The use of transient plasma i ...
