  1. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: RDMChem LLC            Topic: A14AT013

    Two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods represent all of the electrons in any molecule or material with only two electrons by replacing the wave function by the 2-RDM as the basic variable for quantum many-electron theory. The 2-RDM methods, developed by David Mazziotti at The University of Chicago with support from the Army Research Office, have polynomial scaling with system size, al ...

  2. Mobile Military CO2 Refrigeration

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A14054

    As an SBIR Phase I effort, CTS proposes to develop a mobile containerized cold-storage facility, using CO2 as a refrigerant, capable of conditioning 2/3rds of a 20' container to 38?F and 1/3rd of the container to -5?F at an ambient of 135?F, with a coefficient of performance (COP) greater than one. The refrigeration system will also have 30% reserve capacity at these conditions. The individu ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Preconcentration Technoloogy for Infrared Analysis of Organophosphates in Water

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: I

    Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the environment. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a novel strategy that preconcentrates org ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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. ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
