  1. Development of Long-Life, Energy-Dense Batteries Using Alpha-Beta Emitting Isotopes/Isomers

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: N191041

    The primary goal will be to prioritize a list of radioisotopes based on availability, usability, demand, strategic interests, and production methods. In addition, we will begin to design and test new nuclear battery systems (radioisotopes coupled to a semi-conductor matrix). Results from durability or efficiency tests of nuclear battery prototypes using radiation from accelerated beams can be comp ...

  2. Reusable MATPAC Packaging System for Expeditionary Airfields

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N191009

    Expeditionary airfields (EAF) provide the US military with flexibility in operations and strategy. The Marine's Wing Support Squadron and Navy Mobile Construction Battalions are tasked with rapid deployment and operation of expeditionary airfields in any feasible location around the world. AM-2 matting is the base upon which the entire EAF system rests. Large quantities of these mats are required ...
