  2. High Operating Temperature, Broadband Visible/Infrared HgCdTe Photodetectors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF121067

    ABSTRACT:We propose the development of broadband high operating temperature two-color focal plane arrays (FPAs) that will allow simultaneous detection of radiation in the visible and infrared bands from the same target points. The first band will cover the 400 nm to 4 micron wavelength range and will be based on double layer planar heterostructures technology. The backside illuminated array will h ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Integrating the EPIC Hydrocode with MEVA and Endgame Framework

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF161107

    ABSTRACT: The result of this project will be integration of an advanced high-fidelity hydrocode into the MS Windows-based DoDEndgame Framework infrastructure through use of a flexible, open-source application integration infrastructure developed and supported by Illinois Rocstar. To perform the work, Illinois Rocstar will develop an extension to the MEVA application that allows for general couping ...

  5. Certification Modeling for Composites with Voids and Wrinkles for Engines and Structures

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF161129

    ABSTRACT: This proposal aims at developing an integrated approach for process and performance modeling in layered fibrous composites. It focuses on two critical issues in the manufacturing of fibrous composites: (i) modeling of voids, and (ii) modeling of wrinkles. Both aspects of micromechanical damage that get embedded in the morphology of the material at the time of its manufacture are known to ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
