  1. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...

  2. High Purity H2 from Sunlight via a Unique Combination of Novel Photodiodes and Membranes

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) together with University of Michigan (UMich) proposes a system to use solar energy to convert water to ultra-high purity compressed hydrogen suitable for PEM fuel cells. We will combine UMich’s high efficiency photocatalytic water splitting approach with PCI’s integrated hydrogen separator/compressor. The proposed effort will confirm the avoidance of external e ...

  3. Near Real-Time Quantification of Stochastic Model Parameters

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: A13AT009

    Mathematical models of physical and biological systems contain parameters that need to be estimated from measured data. Models with parameters distributed probabilistically require the estimates of a probability measure over the set of admissible parameters. We propose to use frequentist-based approaches for non-parametrically estimating probability measures that describe the distribution of par ...

  4. Robust Terrain-Adaptive Vehicle Planning and Control

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A14AT018

    Autonomous or teleoperated navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) is difficult even in benign environments due to challenges associated with perception, decision making, and human-machine interaction, among others. In environments with rough, sloped, slippery, and/or deformable terrain, the difficulty of the navigation problem increases dramatically. In this effort, Quantum Signal, LLC, Un ...

  5. Ion microtraps with in-situ cleaning and integrated passive and active optical pathways

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: A15AT009

    We will design, fabricate, and characterize an ion microtrap equipped with an integrated in-situ cleaning capability and with integrated optical access ports. The trap will be made of optical quality fused silica. The trap design and the fabrication process will allow for future developments, such as the addition of an integrated oven, UHV-maintaining subsystem, and rapid trap exchange with interc ...

  6. Engineered Strain for Bioconversion of Food Waste to Fuels

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A17AT011

    The proposed strategy in this STTR proposal for bioconversion of food waste to butanol uses the well-described Clostridium acetobutylicum organism to convert the carbohydrate to the fuel molecule butanol. Based on our teams many years of work with butanol formation and genetic studies of the organism and the advancement of recently developed genetic methods, the team will develop a set of genetic ...

  7. Method for Locally Measuring Strength of a Polymer-Inorganic Interface During Cure and Aging

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: A17AT016

    A robust, versatile and portable test system will be developed based on the NMR relaxometry/diffusomtry principles for thorough, reliable, expedient and economical nondestructive evaluation of the polymer/inorganic interface structure and properties. NMR relaxometry/diffusometry probes sensitive volumes that can be moved to scan the interface. This nondestructive test measures a number of paramete ...

  8. Conformal Li Metal Batteries Enabled By Microporous Electrodes

    SBC: Navitas Advanced Solutions Group, LLC            Topic: A18BT015

    Navitas will collaborate with the University of Maryland group to develop a flexible microporous Li metal anode. The proposed porous anode will reduce Li dendrite growth via its built-in porosity and increase rate capability via its high surface area. It will enable a conformal, safe, and light weight lithium metal batteries as soldier portable power devices. The Phase I project will demonstrate t ...

  9. Quantum Utilities for Integrated Characterization

    SBC: Quantum Benchmark Inc            Topic: A18BT011

    Quantum information processing has the potential to revolutionize the U.S. economy, with a potential market value of hundreds of billions of dollars for quantum-information based technologies in a wide variety of sectors, including pharmaceuticals, energy, transportation, and cyber security. A major obstacle to realizing this potential is overcoming the error-prone nature of quantum information, w ...

  10. Hydrogel-based Long-duration ultrasound wound dressing to enhance cellular regeneration and rapid wound closure

    SBC: Zetroz Systems LLC            Topic: A14AT016

    Therapeutic ultrasound is a common modality for pain management and rehabilitation therapy which has been clinically utilized for 60 years. Specifically designed ultrasonic devices for accelerated healing and wound site debridement are generally hand-operated bulky systems. As such, they are used on a case-by-case basis with irregular therapeutic treatment regimens dependent on patient access and ...
