  2. AFFF Disposal

    SBC: Liquid Carbonic L.L.C.            Topic: AF17BT001

    Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is the water-based firefighting agent of choice in military and civilian applications.No satisfactory disposal method has been identified.Liquid Carbonic proposes a treatment for AFFF that will also work for other polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) and their derivatives.The strength of the C-F bond is the ultimate problem in disposing of PFCs and residues.The very se ...

  3. AFFF Disposal

    SBC: Liquid Carbonic L.L.C.            Topic: AF17BT001

    The Air Force and other government and private entities must safely dispose of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Waste (AFFF).The waste is problematic due to a high fluorine content.The thermal decomposition of AFFF by supercritical water oxidation (SCWO) was accomplished in a continuous flow reactor during Phase I demonstrating >99% AFFF conversion efficiency.Phase II will build on the bench-scale work b ...

  8. Utilizing inter-rotor wake interaction to improve endurance and compactness of multi-rotor

    SBC: RotoYe LLC            Topic: AF181043

    In Phase I, Rotoye will produce a multirotor design and prototype which will be optimized for indoor maneuverability with constraints on payload (> 5 lbs), size (window size), and endurance (> 25 minutes). The design will include a feasibility and performance analysis, including a sensitivity study regarding relaxation of the size constraint. An existing optimizer framework will be upgraded during ...

  9. FLAT Lens Antenna Technology for Compact UHF/VHF Antennas

    SBC: Compass Technology Group, LLC            Topic: AF181053

    CTG believes the way to advance the state-of-the-art in compact UHF/VHF antenna design is to approach it from a somewhat unconventional paradigm. Over the last few years, CTG has developed a line of near-field spot probe microwave antennas that have found effective use as Tier-1 sensors in a variety of applications. Integral to CTGs design is the incorporation of dielectric materials optimized as ...
