  1. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...

  3. Novel Bioprocess for Spider Silk Fiber Production

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A14015

    The majority of the US petrochemicals industry is dependent upon petroleum crude or natural gas as raw materials. The excessive dependence on foreign energy resources poses a threat to the energy security of the nation. Materials produced from fossil sources also have a negative impact on the environment. Nylon (Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6) is a major product of the petrochemical industry. The total Nyl ...

  5. Improved Lateral Stability for Unmanned Ground Vehicle Convoys

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A14080

    This work will address the problem of deviations of unmanned vehicle convoy followers by developing a method to estimate the parameters of the disturbances that cause lateral deviations from the desired vehicle trajectory. These parameters will be estimated each time a vehicle passes over a section of terrain. These spatially dependent estimates of the disturbance parameters will then be passed to ...

  6. A Compact and Long Life Power Source for Advanced Munitions

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: A14058

    A reliable 20-year shelf life power source is needed to activate advanced smaller munitions. Most of the current batteries and other power sources do not have such a long shelf life and reliability. The only battery chemistry proven for such a long life and reliability has been used only for very low power applications due to limited ionic conductivity of the electrolyte. Materials & Systems Re ...

  7. Rapid Prediction of Convective Heat Transfer for Thermal Signature Analysis

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: A14074

    Rapid prediction of convection heat transfer requires the solution to a problem that is too complicated to model analytically and too time consuming to model using traditional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) capabilities. These limitations have a significant affect on vehicle survivability assessments, which require accurate convective thermal modeling in order to reach goals associated to ther ...

  10. Field Effects for Processing of Ultralightweight Materials with Superior Properties

    SBC: REL, INC.            Topic: A14022

    Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) have been used in conjunction with commercial DC casting of ingots. This project will utilize the the EMF fields in with squeeze casting to demonstrate the ability to refine grain structures beyond what is possible with conventional processing techniques. High strength ultralightweight components with improved ductility will now replace heavier steel or iron based sol ...
