  1. Anti-Fog Superhydrophobic Coating from Ultrastrong Nanocomposites

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: SB101010

    Superhydrophobic nanostructured coating will be developed from transparent ultrastrong materials. The coatings will be scalable, inexpensive, mechanically robust and thermally resilient. We will initially design such coatings using layered nanocomposites. Then it will be optimized for different surfaces. In the final stages of the project we will demonstrated scaled up version of the coatings lead ...

  2. Minerals Recovery of Copper Mine Tailings on Lake Superior Coastline for use as Raw Material in the Manufacture of Roofing Shingles

    SBC: Lesktech Limited            Topic: 06NCERA1

    Over the past 150 years, copper mining in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan has resulted in the accumulation of approximately 1/2 gigaton of tailing piles. These wastes occur in a number of forms on the uplands and in the lakes and waterways. Today these tailings are drifting along the lakeshore and affecting the beauty of the otherwise pristine coastline of Lake Superior, depreciating the valu ...

  3. Minerals Recovery of Copper Mine Tailings on Lake Superior Coastline for Use as Raw Material in the Manufacture of Roofing Shingles

    SBC: Lesktech Limited            Topic: N/A

    Over the past 150 years, copper mining in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan has resulted in the accumulation of approximately one-half giga tons of tailing piles. These wastes occur both on the upland and in the lakes and waterway and occur in a number of forms. Today these tailings are drifting along the lakeshore and affecting the beauty of the otherwise pristine coastline of Lake Superior, d ...

  4. Anaerobic Pre-Treatment for an Algae-based Wastewater Treatment System

    SBC: Algal Scientific Corporation            Topic: F

    "Removing nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, is an increasingly-important objective of wastewater treatment in order to reduce the impacts of nutrient pollution on waterways. Current technologies to remove these nutrients can be capital intensive, require dangerous chemical inputs and have high operational costs. Our company, Algal Scientific, has developed an innovative nutrient treatm ...

  5. Value-Added Use of Milled Mixed-Color Waste Glass As a Supplementary Cementitious Material in Environmentally Friendly and Energy-Efficient Concrete Building Construction

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of cement (the binder in concrete) is a highly polluting and energy-intensive process, accounting for about 6% of global, anthropogenic C02 emissions and close to 2% of worldwide primary energy use. This project focuses on partial (~20%) replacement of cement in concrete with milled (mixed-color) waste glass to improve the moisture barrier qualities, durability, dimensional stability an ...

  6. Mid-infrared Fiber Laser Based on Super-Continuum

    SBC: OMNI SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: ST051008

    Infrared counter-measures require a mid-infrared laser operating between 2-5 microns with time-averaged powers of 5W and more. Omni Sciences, Inc.'s (OSI's) Mid-Infra-Red FIber Laser (MIRFIL) will generate continuous light over the mid-IR, 2-5 microns, with time-averaged power scalable to more than 5W. The MIRFIL is a practical super-continuum (SC) source using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) la ...

  8. Predictive OPFORS for Planning and Simulation (PROPS)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: A06210

    The need for automation within the US Army’s intelligence collection processes is a well known problem. Intelligence teams do not have the tools to support dynamic battlefield situation management and prediction – two processes that are required for effective and efficient intelligence gathering. The Predictive OPFOR for Planning and Simulation (PROPS) system addresses this need by providing ...

  9. Unmanned Underwater Riverine Craft (UURC)

    SBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB072040

    There is an operational need to carry out clandestine surveillance tasks in Riverine and shallow water environments. Successful execution of these tasks will require an Unmanned Underwater Riverine Craft (UURC) with specialized capabilities. This response to SBIR072-040 will initiate development of a UURC capable of: Navigating submerged in rivers, inlets, and harbors as well as in coastal and s ...
