  1. Acoustic Smart Cement for Well Integrity Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Cementing is an integral part of well construction, providing the seal, protection, and support for the casing to maintain barriers that isolate the well.Wells can experience integrity failure due to structural instability in cemented regions due to subsidence and compaction caused by reservoir depletion over the lifetime of the well.Increased knowledge of cement placement, integrity, and conditio ...

  2. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Accidentally released lubricant into water bodies from hydropower production turbines and other marine (cruises, ships) applications challenges safe water recycling and management, and has invited a number of lawsuits.According to the Environmental Protection Agency, up to 16 million gallons of lubricants per year ? equating to 1.5 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill ? are washed off into wat ...

  3. Metamaterial Void Sensor for Fast Transient Testing

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 30a

    After the Daiichi nuclear disaster, the US Congress placed emphasis on accident tolerant fuels for reactors.During accident events, voids in cooling fluid can cause cladding weakening, and it is important to measure these effects in a controlled test.The project develops a fast void detector that can detect and localize voids, with a quantifiable detection limit superior to a capacitive void senso ...

  4. Low Signature Optical Guidance of Low Collateral Munitions

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: SOCOM061008

    At present, there are no solutions for equipping Class 1 and 2 unmanned aerial system (UAS) platforms with weapons systems that provide the capability for opportunistic engagement of high value targets (HVT). Munitions deployed on larger UAS, and other fixed-wing SOCOM assets, greatly exceed the payload capacity of Class 1 and 2 UAS assets currently in use for intelligence, surveillance, and recon ...

  5. Hybrid Membrane Distillation Process for Enhanced Integrated Ethanol Production

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 19

    The conversion of corn and other biomass to fuel grade ethanol not only would reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources but also would be a major industrial application for agricultural products. However, the process of drying the ethanol to fuel grade consumes significant amounts of energy, incurring costs that continue to increase as cost of natural gas increases. This project will deve ...

  6. Hybrid Anti-Fouling Membrane System for Natural Gas Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 19

    The need for natural gas continues to grow, and recent increases in petroleum prices have been paralleled by large increases in the price of natural gas. However, natural gas at the source often has high concentrations of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, which must be removed. Although existing commercial polymeric membranes (e.g. cellulose acetate and polysulfone) do a good job of sweetenin ...

  7. Low Cost Carbon Fiber Composites for Lightweight Vehicle Parts

    SBC: MATERIALS INNOVATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 27

    The U.S. could significantly reduce oil consumption by decreasing the weight of its automobile fleet, especially by using lightweight carbon composite materials. However, lightweight materials in automobile structures have been problematic for two reasons: (1) the high cost of carbon fiber materials themselves, and (2) the high processing costs of these materials. Although programs exist to red ...

  8. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...

  9. A Robust Microfabricated Specimen Support with Integrated Capabilities for in situ Experimentation in the Transmission Electron Microscope

    SBC: PROTOCHIPS, INC.            Topic: 23

    As the nanotechnology revolution advances, existing and new applications are demanding improved capabilities from the transmission electron microscope ¿ in particular, higher resolution and a greater ability to manipulate specimens in situ. No known commercial system provides both accurate control over specimen temperature and the simultaneous ability to create a stable gaseous environment. T ...

  10. High Bulk-Density, Large Capacity Activated Carbons for Small-Scale Natural Gas Storage

    SBC: CM-Tec, Inc.            Topic: 13

    Natural gas provides a clean and environmentally friendly fuel for electric power generation; however, the distribution network, and especially the storage system, is ill-suited for the projected gowth of natural gas for use in electical energy generation. This project will develop a natural gas (methane) storage system based on an innovative, high-bulk-density activated carbon that is especially ...
