  1. Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings as Superior Thermal Barriers for Engine Pistons

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Automobiles (cars and trucks for instance) are the predominant mode of transportation in the United States. These vehicles are powered by internal combustion engines that consume fossil fuels such as gasoline. Improving the efficiency of internal combustion engines is an ongoing challenge of enormous impact to energy consumption in the world. In order to improve engine efficiency and thus fuel eco ...

  2. Pole-based solar mounting and tracking system for use in cattle production

    SBC: FarmAfield Labs, LLC            Topic: 12e

    Rural areas in the United States have under-developed solar power capabilities relative to urban areas due to challenges matching energy demand centers with underutilized land and consequent cost challenges related to smaller installations that lack economies of scale. This project addresses these problems by proposing solar installations that operate synergistically with livestock production oper ...

  5. NOAA/eNvironmental Beacon (nBeacon) System

    SBC: SALO IT SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 851X

    The nBeacon system will push localized, timely, relevant NOAA data products to public users’ smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices in a convenient, unobtrusive, accessible, easily understandable format. In essence, the nBeacon system will provide a new distribution channel for NOAA data products and services to the general public.

  6. In Operando SPM: variable pressure and temperature

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 07b

    Materials behavior is often dominated by highly localized phenomena, and the ability to probe those properties for engineering devices is critical. Often these devices are operating in environments with large differences in temperature and pressure: from the high vacuum and cold of space to the high temperature and high pressure inside a deep water oil well. Here, a transducer capable of measuring ...

  7. Chemical Composition Measurement of Atmospheric Aerosols in Real-Time

    SBC: MSP CORPORATION            Topic: 19b

    This Phase I SBIR project addresses the need for an instrument to measure the chemical composition of size-classified ambient aerosols in real time. In particular, this instrument will require minimal user interaction and be adaptable to airborne measurements. The proposed measurements would help us understand how aerosol particles are processed in the atmosphere by chemical reactions and by cloud ...

  8. Selective Catalysis for One-Step Lignocellulose Delignification and Lignin Valorization to High Value Methoxyphenols

    SBC: Spero Energy, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    The U.S.s global leadership position in the manufacture of high value chemicals (HVCs) relies on its ability to produce and utilize simple and useful organic (SUO) building block chemicals, a $400 billion a year enterprise based on nonrenewable petroleum feedstock. To maintain U.S.s leadership position in the 21st century, we must seek alternate renewable and economically competitive sources for m ...

  9. MEMs Fabricated Ion Spectrometer for Nuclear Fusion Reactor Reseach

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 23a

    As magnetically confined plasmas progress towards ignition and very long pulse experiments, the physics of the pedestal and divertor regions has become increasingly important. There is a critical need for comprehensive measurements in boundary layer plasmas and the importance of such measurements to the improvement of predictive numerical simulations. The focus of this proposal is the direct, sp ...
