  5. High Impulse Nanoparticulate-Based Gel Propellants

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: E204

    This proposed Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I addresses the development of advanced gel propellants and determination of their suitability for selected applications. Currently, propellant gels consist of fuel (or oxidizer) combined with a polymeric gellant such as a cellulose derivative and suspended aluminum (or silica) particles. However, higher specific impulse and density s ...

  6. High-Yield Process for Selectively Converting CO2 to Aromatics and Olefins

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: X103

    This proposed Phase I addresses the selective conversion of CO2 to hydrocarbons via integrated CO2-to-methanol, methanol-to-olefins, and olefins-to-aromatics processes. Existing pathways to olefins and aromatics via methane exhibit low per-pass conversion. Fischer-Tropsch synthesis can provide much higher conversion, but into a broad spectrum of products. In contrast, it is possible to achieve ...

  9. In Situ Guided Wave Structural Health Monitoring System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A102

    Corrosion and fatigue induced metal-loss and cracks are common problems for missiles and aircraft structures. A wide range of field conditions such as humidity, temperature, stress, cathode potential, and coating conditions, etc. all contributes to the electrochemical reaction between the incipient corrosive agent molecule and the structural metal matrix. The weakened inter-atomic force leads to t ...

  10. Autonomous Collaborative Agents for Onboard Multi-Sensor Re-Targeting

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: E305

    Technologies that support the configuration of sensors and satellites, and allow the reconfiguration or retargeting of sensors in response to user demand or significant events require mechanisms to autonomously understand the type and current state of on-board resources and to re-task these resources in such as way that the system achieves its global objectives. Here we propose the development of ...
