The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Optical Monitor for Non-invasive, Chemical & Size-differentiated Characterization of Airborne Aerosols

    SBC: Air Instruments & Measurement, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Atmospheric aerosol plays an important role in climate and climate change, reduced visibility in urban areas, heterogeneous atmospheric reactions, and acid rain production. Fine aerosol from combustion sources is believed to be an important risk factor for cardiopulmonary disease and mortality. The Phase I objective is to examine the feasibility of producing an inexpensive, compact, robust laser-b ...

  2. Recovery and In-Process Recycle of Product and Feedstocks for OXO Plant Reactor Purge Gas

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The oxo process is an important method of converting inexpensive olefins into valuable oxygenated building blocks. As a result, almost 10 million tons of oxo chemicals are synthesized annually worldwide. All oxo plants produce a reactor purge gas stream that contains 1-2 percent of the feedstocks entering the reactor. This purge gas usually is flared, and the residual feedstocks are lost. Membrane ...

  3. A Membrane Process to Recover and Use Methane Emissions

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Methane is an important global warming gas. Large amounts of methane and other light hydrocarbons are produced as solution gas in the production of oil, and as biogas from landfills and animal feedlots. Some of this gas is emitted directly to the atmosphere, some is flared, and some (from the very largest sources) is used as fuel in specially modified turbines or engines to generate electricity. T ...

  4. Combined Centrifugal Separator/Membrane Ultrafiltration System for Shipboard Treatment of Bilge and Ballast Water

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ships generate large volumes of bilge and ballast water which, to meet new environmental regulations, will require treatment prior to overboard discharge. Such wastewaters contain high levels of emulsified and free-phase oil and suspended solids. Treatment by ultrafiltration can produce dischargeable water, but all currently available membranes are finely porous and only moderately hydrophilic. Th ...

  5. Improved Coatings for Helmet Mounted Display Visors using Filtered Cathodic Arc Plasma Deposition

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop and commercialize stable, more durable and less expensive optical multi-layer coatings that can turn a visor into a display screen for helmet mounted display devices, with minimal impact onthe pilot's overall visual acuity. The innovation proposed is to use filtered cathodic arc plasmas to deposit high density optical coatings that a ...

  6. Vacuum Arc Nano Thrusters for Nanosatellite Spacecraft Constellations

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to develop a new type of nano-thruster electric engine for highly parallel, distributed constellations of nano-satellites and other space propulsion applications. A key feature of the proposed Phase-I is theuse of an Inductive Energy Store (IES) driver to power the vacuum arc nano-thruster, which has a mass of 90% PPU efficiency from 1-10 W. The provin ...

  7. High power, high voltage, ultra-fast, UV triggered diamond switch

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new type of high voltage, high power diamond switch potentially capable of switching GW power levels at ~100 kV. The basic element of this switch is a thin disk of natural or CVD diamondthat supports up to 25 kV, is triggered into conduction by UV radiation, achieves rise/fall times

  8. Mitigation of Atmospheric Nuclear Effects on RF and Optical Communication and Sensor Systems

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to develop and test a capillary discharge source of KCl as an alternative to Ar gas puffs for Decade Quad. The innovative feature of such a capillary source is that the initial z-pinch load is highly ionizedand well collimated, as demonstrated earlier with a NaF source on Gamble II and Double-EAGLE (DE). Consequently, the stability and radiation effici ...

  9. Polar Angle Fluence Distribution Measurements Using Fast Total Stopping Calorimeters

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to adapt a commercially available instrument called a Laser Wavefront Analyzer (LWA) to capture snap-shots of the current and density in the initial coronal region of an imploding z-pinch on the 0.7 MAHawk accelerator at NRL. These snap-shots will reveal the structure of instabilities in the formation of the pinch and allow us to correlate impro ...

  10. New, Innovative Technologies for EMP/HPM Hardening of Military and Commercial Systems and Equipment

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A six-month Phase I project is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of a hierarchical method for more accurately estimating the material parameters of constitutive models in DYNA3D, thereby enhancing the fidelity of nonlinear finite element models. Thehierarchical approach combines the distinct advantages of coupon, component and system-level testing with Bayesian statistical parameter estimat ...
