  2. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation policy making, work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations (Van Dongen et al. 2003; Mollicone et al. 2010). Our group was the first to document the considerable magn ...

  4. Passivation Coatings for RF Power Devices

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 13d

    This project aims to increase the reliability of radio frequency (RF) devices used in accelerator facilities by reducing/eliminating corrosion and erosion produced from the high purity de-ionized water cooling systems. Although metal interconnects are required for electrical and thermal performance, they susceptible to two major failure mechanisms, corrosion and erosion. Currently RF lo ...

  5. Hybrid Solar Coal Gasifier

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 15d

    This Small Business Innovation Research project proposes to develop a first-of-its-kind hybrid solar-coal gasification technology. The current direct heating gasification technology has two shortcomings: (1) greenhouse gases, resulted from the coal combustion, diluting the syngas product, and leading to a low calorific value end product, and (2) thermal gradient, caused by the concentrated heat so ...

  10. An Industrial Membrane System Suitable for Distributed Used Oil Re-Refining

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 09c

    Nationwide about 2.4 billion gallons of lubricants are consumed annually for automotive crankcase (about 58%), industrial processes, machine lubrication, mining, and others. About 1 billion gallons/yr is currently collected as waste oil, equivalent to1-1.5% of annual US crude oil import volume. Presently, about 9% of the collected used oil is re-refined at six facilities in US. The majority of t ...
