  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 ...

  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 ...

  9. Field-Enhanced Carbon Monoxide Tolerance of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

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

    "To be commercially competitive, PEM fuel cells have to be able to run on readily available fuels. Fuel reformers are practical, but fuel cell anode catalysts are severely poisoned by small quantities of carbon monoxide from the reformer. Despite mucheffort invested into increasing CO tolerance, desired performance levels have not been achieved.Recent data has shown great promise in mitigating t ...
