  1. Circuit board Component Recovery for Electronic Waste Reduction

    SBC: Advanced Recovery and Recycling, LLC            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Electronic Waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the US. Significant amounts are recoverable for reuse, resale, and refining for precious metals. The disassemblers send circuit boards to refiners/smelters for precious metals recovery. E-Waste disassemblers remove parts from these circuit boards, so only certain parts are smelted. As such they are the key market for our depopulator. Refiners ...

  2. Low-Cost Biological Solution for Reducing Carbon Pollution in Chemical Manufacturing

    SBC: INDUSTRIAL MICROBES, INC.            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Industrial Microbes is developing a green fermentation platform to replace carbon-emitting petrochemical production with newer methods that build chemicals out of methane and carbon dioxide.Chemical production is a major source of carbon pollution, responsible for 18% of direct industrialemissions. Our innovation is an engineered microbe that can consume carbon dioxide and methane and produce a ch ...

  3. Biofueled Thermoelectric Cookstove

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    Over 50 million Indian households cook on a bio-mass fire and have unreliable or no electricity but are anxious to purchase an affordable power stove which will provide on-demand power and lighting to their homes. Annually, projected sales of the power stove could save sixteen million trees, reduce cooking fire particulates by 90%, reduce the two million premature deaths caused from indoor air pol ...

  4. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Discharge of nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and ammonia) to surface waters can cause eutrophication and the formation of toxic algal blooms, threatening human health and the environment. However, current phosphorus treatment technologies such as chemical precipitation and conventional biological systems can be costly and ineffective to reliably achieve impending effluent regulatory limits of

  5. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  6. Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and Magnesium

    SBC: Adranos Energetics LLC            Topic: DTRA16A002

    While aluminum casing materials provide some enhanced performance and thermal loading to explosive ordinance, their overall effectiveness is highly limited by incomplete combustion and long residence times. In order to reduce these problems, the casing material must be designed to facilitate rapid fragmentation through either specialized casing geometries or greatly refined initial particle sizes. ...

  7. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...

  8. Instrumentation for Characterization of Fireballs, Hot Gases, & Aerosols from Defeat of Targets Containing Biological and Chemical Agents

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA152004

    Mitigation of threats posed by transportation and storage of hazardous chemicals or defeat of targets containing biological and chemical agents requires basic investigations to characterize aerosol formation and dispersion. Advanced laser-based instrumentation are proposed that will be used to characterize the aerosol and gas phase dispersion of chemicals during an accidental or explosive release. ...

  9. Joint Learning of Text-based Categories

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152005

    The fundamental problem addressed by this SBIR proposal is the capability to uncover new entity types, relations and topics that are implicit in text documents.Joint inference offers an opportunity to make discoveries that are more accurate and more nuanced than traditional pipelined approaches, but the hypothesis space is more complex and extraordinarily large.In this project we propose to develo ...

  10. Island-mode Enhancement Strategies and Methodologies for Defense Critical Infrastructure

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA152006

    An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack could cause widespread outage of the commercial electric power system that could last for weeks to months. Microgrids for defense critical infrastructure (DCI) should thus be equipped to operate in islanded mode for extended periods of time using only local fuel storage and renewable energy sources. The primary difference between operating a microgrid in islan ...
