  1. SYNERGEO: Cooperative Reconfigurable Persistent Geostationary Support Platform

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: SB161007

    CU Aerospace, along with the University of Illinois wishes to propose SYNERGEO,a geostationary platform that is assembled from sub-modules by the DARPA Phoenix robot. Each module complies with the DARPA POD standard. With an initial launch of 4 modules, up to three payloads can be supported. With additional core platform modules, the number of unique payloads increases exponentially. Further, the ...

  2. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...

  3. Using Automated Abstractions to Classify System States for Software Health Monitoring

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 9040477

    In most critical software systems, a state that is partially visible through values passed across interfaces contains information that could determine the health of the software system, and whether a failure is likely in the future. Some of this information behaves in a continuous fashion, e.g., the available memory or disk space is easily interpreted to monitor system health. Other values are nom ...

  5. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...

  6. High-Speed Quantum Encryption over a Classical Network

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: SB041017

    This SBIR Phase-II project further develops an exciting new invention in the field of quantum cryptography that will secure the physical layer of today's ubiquitous fiber-optic data networks. Unlike the techniques that are based on single-photon states which are confined to low bit rates and short distances, our approach is based on coherent states emitted by ordinary lasers that permits scaling t ...

  7. A Common Mesh Infrastructure for Parallel Adaptive Multi-Scale and Multi-Physics Integrated Simulations in Complex Geometries

    SBC: THINKADAPTIVE, INC.            Topic: SB041011

    The goal of the Phase II is to develop a parallel version of a common mesh infrastructure (CMI) for efficient adaptive simulations of transient multi-scale and multi-physics processes in complex geometries based on a new, fully threaded tree (FTT) abstract data type. A CMI defines both global topology of a computational domain and local connectivity information on the mesh through a map of a multi ...

  8. Hydrogen Peroxide Based Fuel Cell for High Energy Density Space Application

    SBC: NPL ASSOC., INC.            Topic: SB032048

    The objective of this Phase II project is to demonstrate the engineering feasibility of a high power, unitized, regenerative fuel cell that uses sodium borohydride (NaBH4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) directly at the fuel cell (FC) electrodes. Such a Regenerative Fuel Cell (RFC) is ideally suited for the demanding Unconventional Space Power requirements set forth by DARPA. The engineering prototyp ...

  9. High Speed Room Temperature Infrared Imaging

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: ST051005

    We propose the development of infrared detectors with high detectivities operating at high speeds and at room temperature in the 1-12 micron wavelength range using a combination of two techniques. First, non-equilibrium device operation concepts will be implemented to suppresses both radiative and Auger recombination. Second, the detector volume is incorporated into a resonant cavity, which gives ...

  10. Micro-Discharge Based Multi-Metal Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: 04NCERP2

    Caviton, Inc., developed a novel technique for the continuous monitoring of trace metals emissions. This technique is based on a microdischarge light, which is collected by a spectrometer and analyzed. All metals tested to date can be detected, and the focus of this Phase II research project is to develop a sampling system, carry out laboratory tests, and perform field tests of sampling and an ...
