  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. Emissions Reduction by Catalytic Reformulation of Jet Fuel

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

    "Many of the naval bases proposed to accept deployment of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) are in non-attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for the emissions of ozone precursors: oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and reactive volatile organiccompounds (VOCs). The emissions of particulate matter including soot are also a concern. The Navy would benefit from a cleaner fuel so that hig ...

  3. Development of New Processes for the Refurbishment of Infrared Search and Track (IRST) Germanium domes

    SBC: COMPUTER OPTICS INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The result of Phase I is that Computer Optics Inc. successfullydesigned a process methodology that allows refurbishment ofGermanium Domes for the IRST F14 program at a fraction of thecost of an original dome. In addition to performing the processstudy, COI applied its methodology to a dome that had failed inthe field and refurbished it. This dome was delivered as part ofthe Phase I effort. In Ph ...

  6. Stabilized Nano-ZnO for Diesel Desulfurization for Fuel Cell Applications

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The SBIR Phase I project study will be on the development of stabilized nano-ZnO adsorbents for diesel desulfurization for fuel cell applications. Direct Fuel Cell Technology (DFC) is unique in that it can operate directly on hydrocarbon fuels without theuse of an external reformer to generate hydrogen. Logistic fuels are desirable fuel choice for military based fuel cell applications. However, I ...

  9. Biologically Inspired Underwater Navigation Based on Geomagnetism

    SBC: Madison Technology International, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    "Several ocean animals, including sea turtles, migratory fishes, and lobsters, have evolved accurate compasses for undersea navigation. Some have even evolved a way to move directly to specific geographic locations by exploiting distinctive features of theEarth's magnetic field. MTI, Ltd. in conjunction with the University of North Carolina's Lohmann Laboratory, will develop techniques to adapt t ...

  10. System for Optimization of Very Low Frequency Audio Signals

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Very low frequency (VLF) sonar signals are advantageous because target detection and tracking can occur at very large distances. Visual displays which transform the time-domain signals into the frequency domain and which average over time are currentlyused for target detection and tracking. However, averaging can mask important information about transients and other ocean acoustic events. Furt ...
