  1. Development of a GPU-based High Performance Community Radiative Transfer Model

    SBC: Hyper Sensing, LLC            Topic: 835D

    Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to take advantage of GPU massively parallel computing capability, where radiances at various channels c ...

  2. Renewable Fuel Production System (RFPS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10BT047

    Orbital Technologies Corporation (ORBITEC) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) propose to develop the Renewable Fuel Production System (RFPS), a system which will produce liquid alkene-based transportation fuels from lignocellulosic biomass. Specifically, we propose to investigate the production of levulinic acid (LA) and/or gamma-valerolactone (GVL) from lignocellulose; both of t ...

  3. Innovative Methods for the Conversion of Biomass to Short Chain Alkenes for the Production of Renewable Jet Fuels

    SBC: C5-6 TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N10BT047

    C5-6 Technologies and University of Wisconsin Stevens Point scientists will develop a bacterial strain that economically ferments sugars into isoprene, a platform chemical that will play a central role in the future bio-economy. UWSP scientists have genetically engineered E. coli to produce isoprene, a precursor of B-pinene and other fuels, via a novel pathway that has significant potential produc ...

  4. Monolithic Scalable Mid-Infrared Phase-Locked Laser Array

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N11AT011

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.8-4.2 micron-emitting, active-photonic-crystal (APC) quantum-cascade (QC) lasers by using passive phase-locking in a monolithic structure in order to achieve multiwatt-range, diffraction-limited powers; and 2) the development of the key crystal- growth processes for realizing the proposed APC QC laser: the growth and characterizatio ...

  5. Synthesis of New, Insensitive Energetic Materials

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N11AT034

    Advanced ordnance and propulsion systems of the modern era still utilize vintage energetic materials. These old generation materials, such as RDX and HMX, cannot meet today"s more stringent safety and environmental requirements. Unfortunately, in newer compounds created to replace them, the performance falls with the sensitivity. The ORBITEC team proposes the development of new energetic materials ...

  6. High Strength Cast Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N102106

    ORBITEC proposes to develop high strength cast aluminum alloys for use in Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) structures. Using a new casting technique developed by MSOE, the cast alloys HPAC structures will achieve material properties similar to those of forged structures. The casting process is well suited to the fabrication of components from existing metallic alloys and also facilitates the u ...

  7. Integrated blade tip lighting system for rotorcraft

    SBC: EMTEQ            Topic: N102168

    The Modulated Rotor Tip Light (MRTL) system provides greatly enhanced visibility because blade tip light paths appear very large, intensity and narrow field of view LED optics are used and lateral separation between red and green lights can be as much as five times larger than the fuselage width. EMTEQ"s state-of-the art, high intensity LED light engines and avionics expertise are used to develop ...

  8. Reconfigurable Hybrid Power Supply for Advanced Military Systems

    SBC: ESKRA TECHNICAL PRODUCTS INC            Topic: N112108

    The emergence of new generations of munitions and others military systems has created demand for adaptable high energy density power sources. Both batteries and energy harvesters have been used separately, but with limited success. The purpose of this program is to respond to this unmet need by developing a reconfigurable, adaptable controller for a hybrid power supply. During Phase I, a long-life ...

  9. Efficient, Low Emission Generator

    SBC: KASHMERICK ENGINE SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: N08105

    The proposed Phase II program seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of a patent-pending 6-cycle continuous combustion engine system technology that is a modification of existing 4-cycle engines to address engine related concerns in small generators as experienced by the United States Marine Corps and others. Concerns include wet-stacking, low efficiency at low loads, improved emissions capabilities ...

  10. Organosilicon Compounds for Reduced Flammability Lithium Ion Battery Electrolytes

    SBC: Silatronix            Topic: N101031

    Silatronix has developed novel organosilicon compounds that can be used as drop-in replacements for conventional carbonate electrolytes in lithium-ion cells. These organosilicon electrolytes have very high flash points and have demonstrated superior stability and safety characteristics. In the course of this research, Silatronix will optimize the composition of these electrolytes to meet the speci ...
