  3. 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 ...

  4. High-Temperature, Flexible Inorganic Dielectric Films for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: OSD06EP3

    High temperature, high energy density capacitors will serve a critical technology path enabling military applications such as power pulse weaponry, power conditioning devices, as well as many aerospace, automotive and petroleum applications. With DoD’s next-generation initiatives toward electrically-powered propulsion systems, capacitor performance limits needs to be much enhanced, particularly ...

  5. Development of Hydrocarbon-Based Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs)

    SBC: Functional Coating Technology, LLC            Topic: AF06164

    In the phase I, We have demonstrated that high power densities can be achieved for SOFC using component surrogate fuels like dodecane or Tridecane via direct internal reforming. This approach can provide solutions for the highly power-dense applications required by Air Force (e.g. auxiliary power units for aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles) and many portable and transportation applications in ...

  6. Continuous Variable Quantum Encryption using Short Laser Pulses

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF05T007

    The use of optical technology in communication links has compelling advantages in terms of data rate, power consumption, weight, and size of the system. However, with the adoption of such technology, we have become heavily reliant on optical communication systems for our economy and national security. It is thus prudent to give careful consideration to the reliability, robustness to attack, and se ...

  7. Advanced Radio Frequency and Optical Connectivity to support Network-Centric Operations

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF06069

    NuCrypt is developing the technology for physical-layer optical encryption that exploits the intrinsic, irreducible noise of light. Our method, called AlphaEta, has fundamental and practical security benefits and the technology performs similarly as standard optical communications equipment. We have demonstrated AlphaEta in installed fiber-optic networks and have also built encrypted free-space ...

  8. Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T012

    We propose to develop marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechanical properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomerates through the chamber, after surface detachment, ...

  10. Power and Aeropropulsion: Meyer Nutating Disk Engine

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: AF06174

    This proposal will continue development of the Meyer Nutating Disk Engine, a novel engine concept capable of delivering twice the power density of a traditional two-stroke engine and up to four times the power density of a four-stroke engine. The overall objective of this effort will be to provide both the military and commercial worlds with an internal combustion engine that is compact, lightwei ...
