  1. Design and Analyses of HTS Coils for the VASIMR Experiment

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N/A

    In the Phase I effort, Tai-Yang Research Corporation (TYRC) proposes to design and perform analyses on state-of-the-art High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) coils for the Variable Specific Impulse Magneto-Plasma Rocket (VASIMR) experiment. Using the design results obtained in the Phase I effort, TYRC proposes in Phase II to fabricate, test, and install HTS coils (VX-2 and VX-3) in the existing V ...

  2. Development of High Frequency Excitation Devices for Noise Reduction


    The noise level of new and existing aircraft need to be reduced to meet the increasingly stringent US and international airport standards. High frequency excitation (wavelengths much shorter that amplified instabilities) of jet flows is a new technology that has the potential to reduce acoustic levels significantly in addition to lowering turbulence levels. In application, forcing is applied at fr ...

  3. Mesoporous Catalysts for Ambient Temperature Aqueous Phase Oxidation

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    Innovative ambient temperature oxidation catalysts based upon transition metal containing mesoporous supports are proposed. The self-assembly of amphiphilic surfactants, co-solvents, and oxide network formers is utilized to produce monolithic gels that can be readily converted to amorphous mesoporous oxide structures by thermal treatment. Using this approach, open structured mixed transition metal ...

  4. Microwave Powered Solid Waste Stabilization and Water Recovery

    SBC: UMPQUA RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    A Microwave Powered Solid Waste Stabilization (MPSWS) system is proposed as the primary step in the treatment of solid waste materials generated during extended manned space missions. The proposed system will recover water initially contained within the wastes and stabilize the residue with respect to microbial growth. The dry waste may then be safely stored or passed on to the next solid waste tr ...

  5. Nanofluid Boiling Module for Precision Cooling of Microelectronics

    SBC: Fluid Analytics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    MicroEnergy Technologies, Inc. (MicroET) and the University of Washington propose to demonstrate the feasibility and the major advantages of a unique high heat flux cooling module for localized cooling of distributed electronics. This technology combines innovations in heat sink design, manufacturing, and operation including an innovative micropump design to achieve heat rejection rates in excess ...

  6. Reclamation of Space Mission Water


    For long duration exploratory space missions, reclamation of water for potable and hygiene uses from waste water is of vital importance. Approximatesly 230 kg of waste water are generated from four person crew during course of normal daily activities. Physicochemical methods presently in place (e.g. phase change and/or membrane processes) reduce total organic carbon (TOC) to 30-300 mg/liter. Compa ...

  7. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...
