  4. Low Temperature Thermoelectric Refrigeration with HgCdTe-based Superlattices

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF131083

    ABSTRACT: A major limitation to the wide deployment of high sensitivity infrared detector arrays in space environment is the cooling system. Major developments of active cooling capabilities in terms of performance, capacity, reliability and cost remains a primary need. Current conventional cooling systems are bulky and introduce additional vibration, heat, and power consumption. The goal of thi ...

  6. A Novel Advanced Propulsion System for Large Class Unmanned Aerial Systems

    SBC: Peregrine Turbine Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: The steadily rising cost of fossil fuels together with a heightened sensitivity to emissions has created a new backdrop against which the performance of traditional aircraft powerplant technology is no longer acceptable. Thermal efficiencies of current offerings hovering around 30% and below indicate that even modern turbine/turboprop engines are ready for game changing improvements. ...

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

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  10. Simulation of Small-Scale Damage Evolution During Processing of Polymer Matrix Materials Systems

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPUTATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF121128

    ABSTRACT: This proposal presents two novel approaches for characterizing manufacturing induced damage in fibrous composites. New developments include integration of discontinuous Galerkin ideas with the variational multiscale finite element methods for the modeling of interface and interphase phenomena in these material systems. The second approach is developed for a mixture theory that is govern ...
