  1. Ultra-High Energy Density Piezoelectric Nanocomposites for Lightweight Power Harvesting Micro-Systems

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: SB092001

    The proposed research effort will develop a highly efficient MEMS energy harvesters that utilize a novel nanocomposite technology recently developed by HARP Engineering LLC. Unlike existing piezoelectric nanocomposites, the material proposed here has an electromechanical coupling coefficient higher than most monolithic piezoceramics typically used in MEMS processing. This nanocomposite technolog ...

  2. Integrated Power-Microclimate Cooling System for the Soldier

    SBC: CUBE Technology            Topic: A08116

    This program is expected to result in a combined, miniature Power/Microclimate cooling system for the soldier. The compact thermoelectric generator system will create significant power and have higher energy density than lithium technology batteries over extended missions. The highly integrated, and innovative microclimate cooler will result in a gravity-independent cooling system with high coef ...

  3. Rapid Indicator for Pollution

    SBC: CEDAR Systems            Topic: N/A

    CEDAR Systems responds to the EPAs need for an inexpensive, convenient and rapid analytical method for the detection of pollution indicators for such as E. coli and enterococci in beach and other recreational waters as a means of identifying risk before exposure has taken place. Currently available tests are far from ideal in that they all require significant incubation periods (i.e. 18+ hours) t ...

  4. Gas-Kinetic Simulation of Separated Flows

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: SB072006

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a gas-kinetic CFD solver for separated flow simulation. Compared with the traditional macroscopic CFD approach, a gas-kinetic CFD approach is more suitable for turbulent separated flow simulation. This is because a gas-kinetic model with the turbulence relaxation time can represent rich and complex physics when projected onto hydrodynamic variables and the tur ...

  7. Very High Altitude Aircraft Propulsion Engines

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: SB072045

    Proposed is a power system suitable for operation to altitudes of 100K feet or more and capable of operating for 12-20 hours at a time. The system will be storable for years in a sealed container. It will have thermal efficiency sufficient for meeting the 20-hour endurance requirement while still being storable within the required size envelope. It will feature turbomachinery and technologies a ...

  8. SOI MESFETs for Ultra-Low Power Electronic Circuits

    SBC: SJT Micropower            Topic: ST071007

    Simulations of high performance silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MESFETs show that they can be used for ultra-low power (ULP) radio frequency electronics with power added efficiencies (PAE) that are 10 times higher than existing solutions. The high PAE comes from the enhanced voltage swing that the MESFETs can tolerate (5-50V) compared to current VLSI CMOS technologies (1-5V). The SOI MESFETs can be fab ...
