  3. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankine Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    Current anaerobic digester systems are designed for capturing energy from waste from large heads of farm animals. GHD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of anaerobic digesters, has stated that a minimum dairy heard size for economical implementation of a biogas system as 800 cows. These require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger, a limiting factor in economically scaling ...

  4. Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 and Water to Syngas

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: This proposal attepts to develop a new high efficiency process for conversion of carbon dioxide and water to syngas, as a first step in production of synthetic fuels. We have already demonstrated the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide at over 80% energy efficiency. The objective of the proposed work is to extend the process so that we can also produce syngas. BENEFIT: I ...

  5. High Efficiency Up/Down Converting Nanoparticles

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: To address the need for covert, transparent optical taggants, which can upconvert and downconvert greater than 100 nm when stimulated by either 830 nm or 1064 nm laser light, a series of wide bandgap doped metal oxide nanoparticles will be developed and demonstrated. In Phase I, lanthanide-doped core-shell nanocrystals will be fabricated that are sufficiently small (e.g.

  6. Novel protocol for Quantum Key Distribution

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF09BT21

    ABSTRACT: Quantum key distribution (QKD) is an exciting application of quantum theory to the important real-world problem of secure communication. Specifically, QKD may allow for provably secure key distribution. These random keys can then be used either in a one-time pad style encryption system (for absolute security at low rates) or a standard encryption system (for high security at high rates) ...

  7. High Efficiency Flexible Photovoltaic Blankets

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: MicroLink will develop a high-efficiency, flexible photovoltaic blanket, which will reduce solider borne weight by reducing battery requirements. The photovoltaic blanket will combine ultra-thin, flexible high-efficiency, GaAs-based multi-junction solar cells, made using MicroLink"s proprietary epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process, with a novel packaging approach that involves laminating a ...

  8. Deceiving the Deceivers: Active Counterdeception for Software Protection

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    DoD operations and infrastructure increasingly depends on software, which makes it an attractive target for our adversaries. Not surprisingly, deception plays a central role in most cyberattacks. To better protect these critical systems, we propose to design and build an"active counterdeception"software protection system which we call CYCHAIR that both incorporates the right sensors, and enables ...

  9. Ultra-High-Efficiency, Multi-Junction Solar Cells for Space Applications

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF112058

    ABSTRACT: The innovation in this proposed Phase I SBIR program is the development of a new type of top subcell for a novel, all-lattice-matched multijunction solar cell. The proposed structure will achieve a much higher end-of-life power conversion efficiency, in conjunction with a greatly increased power density, than current state-of-the-art photovoltaic technologies. Photovoltaic power sourc ...

  10. Carbon Nanotube based Solutions for the Next Generation Logic Circuits

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF112078

    ABSTRACT: Designing efficient logic circuits involves improvement and optimization of transistors and interconnects. However, as technology follows Moore"s law down to nanometer dimensions, the performance gap between the transistors and interconnects is continuously widening. As conventional CMOS technology approaches its fundamental physical and material limits, interconnects have become the pr ...
