  1. A Low-Cost In-flight Deicing System for Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a deicing system for aircraft leading edges using a high-efficiency, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer. The entire aircraft industry needs this technology to improve safety while minimizing the overall impact on aircraft weight and fuel consumption. We propose to use a low-cost, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer to break the ice bond in a manner similar ...

  2. Reduction of Motion Side Effects and After Effects

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Motion sickness has long been a problem during the deployment of military forces. The increased speed and agility of today's transports makes this problem even more acute. For the special forces who undertake rapid insertions using a variety of vehiclesin all weather, the incidence of motion sickness can compromise the mission and endanger lives. Despite intensive research, there are still no ...

  6. High-Performance Carbon Materials for Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65805 High rate energy storage devices, such as ultracapacitors, are a critical enabling technology for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). The best electrode materials for use in electric double-layer capacitors (EDLC) possess three characteristics: (1) high surface area; (2) high electrical conductivity; and (3) surface area easily accessible by electrolyte. While ruthenium-based ultracapacit ...

  7. Rotary Steerable Motor System for Deep Gas Drilling

    SBC: Aps Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70860 Current drilling systems (e.g., steerable systems and rotary steerable tools) have limitations when drilling deep wells, particularly in applying high torque to the drill bit. Steerable systems generate a high degree of drag from hole tortuosity, and rotary steerable tools have reduced bit torque also due to drag. Other systems (e.g., percussion) develop high vibrations which can dama ...
