  1. A Novel Device for Surface-Enhanced Detection of Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF05T025

    Onsite detection of potentially harmful chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWAs) in a timely manner is critical to the defense and safety of personnel and material assets. However, currently available methods for biological agent detection rely on fragile biomolecules for target recognition, require sample preparation, and well equipped laboratory for further analysis. A variety of detecti ...

  2. A Novel Embedded Sensor Array for Corrosion Monitoring

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05225

    Military vehicles such as trucks, tanks, aircraft, and ships are used in a variety of harsh environmental conditions such as salt water oceans, arid desserts, the humid tropics, as well as cold climates. As a result of these extreme environmental conditions, the Department of Defense spends close to $20 billion annually in corrosion-related maintenance, repair/replacement, and personnel costs. C ...

  3. A Novel, Small High-power Output Biofuel Cell

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF05148

    The development of small, high-power output biofuel cells as alternate power sources are very important for stand-alone sensors, sight and illumination devices, implantable devices, and biological sensors. The biofuel cells must be lightweight, cost-effective, and provide greater power densities than currently available power sources. This Phase I SBIR proposal describes the development of a dua ...

  4. A Plasma-Based Multi-Fuel Reformer

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF05282

    Natural gas is an ideal feedstock for hydrogen reformers in the United States because it is inexpensive, hydrogen rich, and readily available in the United States. Oversees, natural gas is not readily available; however JP-8, the NATO single fuel for the battlefield is readily available anywhere the Air Force would be deployed. Hydrogen reformers exist today that utilize either natural gas or JP ...

  5. A Small, Portable, and Powerless Sterilization System for Medical/Dental Instruments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05167

    The U.S. military has a significant need to sterilize medical and dental instruments in environments where standard non-portable, power-consuming sterilization methods are limited and/or unavailable. Lynntech proposes to develop a small, light-weight, and powerless steam sterilization system for field use. The system includes small, disposable heating/cooling cartridges that exploit well-known e ...

  6. A versatile, novel two-step hydrogen reforming process

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: AF05282

    The Air Force requires a reformer technology that can handle multiple fuels and produce fuel cell quality hydrogen on demand. These include JP-8 as well as natural gas and other hydrocarbons. Many of the current technologies require multiple steps in order to remove CO or H2S impurities from the fuel stream. This creates difficulties from fuel versatility, processing and portability standpoints ...

  7. AARS: A System Solution to Autonomous Aerial Refueling of Powered Munitions

    SBC: StarVision Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05165

    StarVision Technologies proposes to conduct an experimental feasibility assessment of an innovative and robust Autonomous Aerial Refueling System (AARS). The system has been developed specifically for powered munitions and will provide significant battlefield enhancements by allowing persistent and sustained air operations. The AARS proposed is the result of several years of studies and feasibili ...

  8. Accelerated Biomethanation of Sequestered Carbon Dioxide and Paraffin in Coal Beds

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 16b

    78000 One way to reduce greenhouse gases is to sequester carbon dioxide. Once sequestered, a bioconversion process can convert carbon dioxide into methane, an environmentally friendly energy source. The process requires an abundance of hydrogen, which is present in the hydrogen-rich coal macerals and paraffin. This project will develop techniques to accelerate the in situ biomethanation of sequ ...
