  1. Recycling Rare Earth Metals from Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

    SBC: Onto Technology, LLC            Topic: C

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Project develops methods of recycling rare earth alloys from used nickel metal hydride batteries. Alloys of rare earth metal, nickel and other metals provide functional hydride storage materials that are critical to the operation of nickel metal hydride batteries and their applications. The current fleet of hybrid electric vehicles relies upon nick ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Strain-Modulated Diamond Nanostructures for Next-Generation, Biocompatible Nanoelectromechanical Systems

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: A12aT017

    In this proposal, we demonstrate fabrication and characterization of diamond nanoribbons, novel strain-modulated diamond nanostructures (SMDN). Such structures are generated by applying strain force on nano-patterned diamond film as the nanopatterns are transferred to a flexible substrate. Once the strain is released, the rigid diamond patterns are converted to highly ordered diamond nanoribbons. ...

  4. Miniaturized Imaging Spectrometer Based on HgCdTe Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A12015

    To satisfy the Army"s needs for the detection and identification of chemical and biological compounds and agents present in improvised explosive devices, we propose to develop a miniaturized infrared (IR) imaging spectrometer consisting of a HgCdTe-based IR focal plane array (IRFPA) coupled with a Fabry-Perot interferometer, by combining microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology with HgCdTe ...

  5. Dislocation reduction in LWIR HgCdTe epitaxial layers grown on alternate substrates

    SBC: SOAL Technologies LLC            Topic: A12024

    Mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) is used in ultrahigh performance infrared (IR) detectors and focal plane arrays (FPAs) used by both the DoD and NASA. This material has been shown to be unique in many ways in comparison to other IR materials. For example, it is possible to scan over the entire infrared spectrum (i.e. LWIR/MWIR/SWIR) by controlling the growth composition of HgCdTe, which is acco ...

  6. Tools for Rapid Automated Development of Expert Models (TRADEM)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: A12026

    We will investigate, test and evaluate a new method for machine generation of domain and expert models for intelligent tutoring systems. This method uses a corpus of instructional, training, and procedural content that is semantically related to a domain of instruction. Semantic analysis, text analysis, and machine learning are applied to the domain corpus to identify competencies, map relationshi ...

  7. Advanced Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) Techniques for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection and Characterization

    SBC: SKY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A12040

    We present the evaluation and demonstration of advanced electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor modalities to enhance US Army capabilities to detect and characterize buried explosive hazards (BEHs). This technology addresses the need within the US Army for improved detection and characterization of both shallow (flush to 1 m) and deeply buried (greater than 1 m) explosive threats. The proposed re ...

  8. Innovative Nano-Graphitic Obscurant Aerosols


    American Energy Technologies Co., a woman-owned small business concern of Illinois, will partner with Lockheed Martin MS2-Eagan, and with A.J. Drexel University, in order to develop and field an innovative manufacturing process for synthesis of highly conductive nanosized graphitic materials. A two-pronged approach towards making a desired graphitic particle architecture, which measures 20 nm x 5 ...

  9. Innovative Solutions for Propellant Temperature Sensing for Future Munitions

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems Inc.            Topic: A12056

    In this Phase I program, we develop and validate an acoustic concept that is capable of measuring interior temperatures in complex munitions propellants. The measurement technique is based on ultrasonic thermometry methods. Using sensors located on the exterior surface, the variation in propagation time is used to estimate the internal temperature. No modification of the component is required. In ...

  10. ASP Motion Base for Stabilized Mounts

    SBC: FLEX FORCE ENTERPRISES LLC            Topic: A12079

    FlexFORCE proposes to evaluate modifications to the stabilization inner gimbal of its existing COTS naval stabilized weapon platform to jumpstart the development of an Aviation ASP. The proposed modifications would enable mounting the modified inner gimbal onto US Army airframes to stabilize, thus increasing the combat effectiveness, axially mounted airborne M3P machine guns.
