  1. Instrument Development for Real-Time Measurement of Particulate Concentration and Primary Particle Size in Diesel Engine Exhaust Using a Novel Implementation of Laser-Induced Incandescence

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    In the 2002 Small Business Innovation Research Solicitation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency explicitly expressed interest in instruments that can accurately and reliably measure particulate emissions from vehicles. The availability of suitable instruments for measuring particulate emissions from engines and vehicles will benefit two broad categories of users: (1) it will directly help ...

  2. Affordable, Large-Scale Manufacturing of High Surface Area Iron Powder

    SBC: ONMATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Contaminated groundwater containing trichloroethylene and similar halogenated hydrocarbons poses a large-scale environmental challenge. Existing treatment methods are imperfect in that they are slow, expensive, fail to treat the full spectrum of groundwater contaminants, and sometimes produce even more toxic partially chlorinated chemical intermediaries. In the past decade, techniques have emerg ...

  3. Nanoparticle-Enhanced Immunoassay for Monitoring Organic Pollutants

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An important approach to limiting the pollution of our Nation¿s natural waters and drinking water supply is the development of field-deployable monitors to detect the presence of pollutants in ground and surface waters. Monitors can alert regulators to the presence of dangerous contaminants before they spread more widely through the ecosystem, thus protecting human health and the environment. I ...

  4. Removal of VOCs From Water With an Air Stripper/Membrane Vapor Separation System


    Treatment of water contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is a major problem for the U.S. chemical industry. Currently, VOCs are removed from moderately contaminated wastewater streams by processes such as steam stripping, and wastewaters containing low levels of VOCs are treated by air stripping combined with a carbon adsorption off-gas treatment system. Membrane Technology and Res ...

  5. A Small Direct Electromagnetic Valve Prototype Internal Combustion Engine

    SBC: SBE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The problem addressed by this Phase I research project is high emissions from small reciprocating internal combustion engines, particularly in terms of frequent operation at non-ideal revolutions per minute (RPM) and torque loading as well as under cold-start conditions. There is an opportunity to substantially reduce emissions through the use of digitally controlled electric variable valve timin ...

  6. High-Energy Laser Coatings for Large, Lightweight, and Compliant Deployable Space Optics

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to use its Filtered Cathodic Arc Plasma Deposition (FCAPD) process to apply reflective high-energy laser coatings to complaint polyamide substrates for space-based mirrors. FCAPD coatings have better adhesionand are denser and more stable than coatings deposited using other methods, such as, sputtering or evaporation. In addition, the internal stress o ...

  7. Reconfigurable Processors for Software Protection

    SBC: ACCORD SOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    The CipherProcessor architecture demonstrates reconfigurable opcodes unique to a specific processor or dynamically to a parallel environment and defined uniquely at compile time. Starting from a base of reconfigurable knowledge, Accord Solutions Inc willdevelop a reference design and demonstrate its viability. It incorporates an effective mechanism for delivery of compiled unique opcode binaries f ...

  8. Structural Health and Usage monitoring system for Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) structures


    The objective of this proposed project is to develop innovative structural health monitoring (SHM) technologies for application to composite structures for unmanned air vehicle (UAV) platforms. Composites can incur invisible damage from impacts, loadingabrasion, operator abuse, or neglect that if unchecked may lead to lower structural reliability, higher life-cycle costs, and loss in operational c ...

  9. Non-Contact, 3-D Measurement for Aircraft Surfaces

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A shape capture system for field and industrial capture of surface contours and discontinuous shapes is proposed. The system will provide accuracy of 0.01 inch or better at over 1 million points distributed over a region 100 inches across from three ormore images obtained with a high resolution handheld digital camera. A tripod or bench mounted projector projects a pattern onto the surface from w ...

  10. Traveler-ARM Isolation System for Large Flexible Space Structures

    SBC: AEC-Able Engineering Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase 2 program will accelerate the development and commercialization of the Traveler-ARM isolation system conceptualized during the Phase 1 program. The Phase 1 program has established the technical feasibility and requirements compliance ofthe Traveler-ARM isolation system. The primary objective of the proposed Phase 2 program is to further develop and validate the Traveler-ARM is ...
