  1. Compact Plasma Reformer for the Ship Service Fuel Cell System

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FuelCell Energy, Inc. (FCE) is developing a marine fuel cell power plant for use on naval vessels. The Ship Service Fuel Cell power generator is based on internally reformed carbonate fuel cell technology utilizing naval logistic fuels.Logistic fuels require sulfur removal and conversion to a methane-rich gas for use with the internally reforming carbonate fuel cell stacks. The present fuel pr ...

  2. Biologically Inspired Underwater Navigation Based on Geomagnetism

    SBC: Madison Technology International, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    "Several ocean animals, including sea turtles, migratory fishes, and lobsters, have evolved accurate compasses for undersea navigation. Some have even evolved a way to move directly to specific geographic locations by exploiting distinctive features of theEarth's magnetic field. MTI, Ltd. in conjunction with the University of North Carolina's Lohmann Laboratory, will develop techniques to adapt t ...

  3. Speech Interface Architectures for Human Interaction with Computer-Generated Forces

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Combat superiority requires training superiority. Current training state-of-the-art combines virtual reality, gaming techniques and intelligent forces. A key element missing from this equation is realistic speech interaction, with intelligent agentsrepresenting opposing forces, friendly forces and non-combatants. This effort will combine current research in speech interaction and understanding wi ...

  4. Novel Biomass Conversion Process for Production of Butylenes

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N10BT047

    The United States is currently faced with unprecedented energy challenge. Petroleum prices have skyrocketed due to rising competition for energy resources from emerging economies. There is a significant need for processes that can produce hydrocarbons from renewable resources rather than petroleum. The use of renewable resources ensures a long-term supply of hydrocarbons, even after easily extract ...

  5. Automated Human and System Performance Assessment in Operational Environments

    SBC: ADVANCED INFONEERING, INC.            Topic: N11AT001

    The development of complex aviation weapons systems involves flight testing at various stages of the design cycle. Test pilots are highly trained individuals with flight and assessment skills necessary to evaluate the performance of test articles. Test pilots might subconsciously use their high level of expertise and skill to compensate for adverse test article traits. What is needed is a system t ...

  6. Solid State Thin-Film Batteries for Conformal, Ultralight, and High Temp Applications

    SBC: CSquared Innovations, Inc            Topic: N11AT006

    CSquared Innovations LLC has developed a novel plasma/laser manufacturing process for solid state thin-film Li-ion batteries which consolidates conventional material synthesis and deposition onto a single platform. This revolutionary technique can produce a fully solid state thin-film Li-ion cell in atmosphere with the ability to conformally apply the battery to nearly any surface. The equipment c ...

  7. High Fidelity Helicopter Lag Damper Model for Comprehensive Rotor Analysis

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N11AT010

    Helicopters with articulated rotor blades are subject to the well-known ground resonance where the rotor lag mode interacts, in an unstable fashion, with fuselage roll. To eliminate this ground resonance, both lag dampers and fuselage roll dampers are required. The Sikorsky UH-60 helicopter platform, which comprises the vast majority of utility rotorcraft used by the US Army and the Navy, relies u ...

  8. Advanced Flame Resistant Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N11AT014

    Shipboard structures can benefit from the relatively high performance-to-weight ratio, fatigue life, durability, processability and multi-functionality of polymer composites (versus metals). The fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) performance and the initial economics of composites, however, cannot match those of metals. Efforts to replace metals with composites in shipboard structures have emphasized ...

  9. High-level tools and languages for faster Intelligent Tutoring System(ITS) model development

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N11AT032

    Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) hold the promise of dramatically increasing the cost effectiveness of training. However, one contributor to the per-lesson cost effectiveness of ITSs is the significant effort that goes into creating instructional material. ITSs in many ways shift the costs of giving instruction to the costs of preparing instruction. Preparation costs generally are quite high. I ...

  10. Deterministic fabrication of aligned carbon nanotube array and device architectures

    SBC: Absolute Nano, LLC            Topic: OSD10T004

    In this Phase I STTR project, we plan to demonstrate a new platform for engineering the diameter and packing density of vertically aligned CNT"forests", based on a scalable"blade casting"method of spatially directed evaporative self-assembly of metal catalyst nanoparticles. Using these self-assembled catalyst arrays, CNT forests will be grown by atmospheric pressure thermal CVD, taking advantage ...
