  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. FRP Smart Composite Pipe System

    SBC: SDR Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research develops an innovative solution for a new SMART pipe system utilizing high-density polyethylene/fiber reinforced polymer (HDPE/FRP) composite system. The new pipe system utilizes a combination of three interacting materials: FFRP, HDPE, and concrete and is equipped with wireless sensors to provide mentoring capabilities during operations. The proposed system is suitable fo ...

  5. Rapid Rail Inspection System

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will use an ultrasonic beam traveling longitudinally along the rail rather that the complex normal and angle-beams transducer assemblies in current systems. Detection of transverse defects becomes a simple pulse-echo application and resolves many inherent speed, inspection reliability and robustness problems in current rail inspection systems. The simplified procedure will increase ...

  6. Authentication of Canned Crabmeat by Species-Discriminating PCR-Based Diagnostic

    SBC: APL Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Species identification of blue crabmeat is necessary for the detection of inappropriately labeled products. Atlantic blue crab is the most valuable crab industry in the United States. Due to its high cost, popularity and demand Atlantic blue crab meat is susceptible to substitition using less valuable crab species. Authenticity of crab products marketed in the United States will ensure consumers a ...

  7. Passive Microwave Sensor Technology for Detection of Visible, Obscured, or Subsurface Hotspots to Accurately Direct Precision Crew Response

    SBC: CUSTOM MANUFACTURING & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    With record-breaking disastrous wildfires along with the human toll fighting them, no real-time technology is available to hot shots or heli-tanker suppression crews to easily detect and pinpoint water/retardant suppression on latent or lingering hot spots which are often obscured by dirt, smoke or dust. We propose to generate functional requirements of a microwave radiometer handheld sensor and a ...

  8. Rapid Pesticide Residue Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    In 1999 the FDA reported that as much as 1% of food brought to market may have contained pesticide residues exceeding EPA tolerance levels (sub part-per-million concentrations) set for safe consumption. The uncertainty in this value is due to the long analysis times (hours/sample) that limit the amount of food actually analyzed. Inspectors need an analyzer that can provide comprehensive analysis i ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. JP-8 Micro-reformer

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "PCI proposes into topic Area 2 to develop and demonstrate a JP-8 micro-reformer capable of delivering the hydrogen required for a 20 We Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) from a catalytic reactor which is expected to be ~1 in3 (size of 2 standard AA batteries)and weighing
