  2. Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic Electrolytes

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09AT011

    Lithium-air battery consists of a lithium anode electrochemically coupled to atmospheric oxygen through an air cathode. The major advantages of lithium air batteries are that air cathode active material, oxygen, is not stored internal to cell system and lithium anode being extremely lightweight metal with a highest theoretical specific energy density. This energy density is well comparable with t ...

  3. Broadband agile wavelength laser for chemical aerosol detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: A09AT020

    Chemical agents in aerosol form have been identified as a major threat, and there is now interest in applying the long wave infrared frequency agile laser sensor to detection of this important agent form. If successful, it would be possible to perform detection of chemical agent vapors and aerosols and biological aerosol agents with a single dual-use sensor. To accomplish this, it is critical to ...

  4. Optimized Drying of Nano sized anisotropic particles in suspensions to improved aerosol dispersions.

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: A09AT021

    The US Army has underscored the importance of developing more effective obscurant material for shielding US soldiers and their equipment from visible, microwave, and infrared observation. Current separation techniques tend to allow the nano-particles to agglomerate at higher density than desired for efficient obscurant devices. ElectroDynamic Applications, Inc. (EDA) in partnership with the Univ ...

  5. Development of a Butanol Fuel Processor for Person-Portable Fuel Cell Power Systems

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: A10AT009

    FuelCell Energy, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Minnesota, is proposing to develop an innovative fuel processor for person-portable fuel cell power system applications. The system will be designed to reform butanol into a hydrogen-rich stream suitable for use in a low-temperature Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. The technical approach will focus on the development of a no ...

  6. Sustainable Materials for Thermal Management of Base Camps

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A10AT024

    Hi-Z Technology, Inc. (Hi-Z) and the University of California San Diego propose to adapt Hi-Z’s innovative Quantum Well (QW) thermoelectric (TE) technology to develop a TE cooler for the Army’s base camp tents. The cooler is to be embedded in the flexible tent materials and powered by electricity generated by photovoltaics. Hi-Z has developed nanocomposite QW TE materials that have high Figur ...

  8. Benign, Inexpensive Simulant for testing of Biological Standoff Sensors

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10AT017

    The goal of this Phase I proposal is to develop a synthetic, low cost, and benign simulant for biowarfare agents (BWA) to be used in the testing of standoff sensors. Orono Spectral Solutions Inc. (OSS) has performed preliminary work leading to the identification of benign ingredients that, when combined in a predefined mass ratio, mimic UV-Vis and infrared signatures of BG spores. This work was pe ...

  9. High surface-area, mesoporous oxide adsorbent sampling system.

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10AT018

    The overall goal of this Phase I project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an infrared transparent, micro-fluidic sampling system that will lead to a field-deployable detection system capable of detecting low ppb levels of chemical warfare (CW) agents in water. To accomplish this goal, the proposed detection system will combine high surface area, organically modified mesoporous oxide absorptiv ...

  10. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Deep UV Raman and Fluorescence Detection

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    This proposal addresses the need to increase the probability of detection (PD) and reduce the probability of false alarm (PFa) for non-contact, real-time sensors for trace levels of biological and chemical targets using simultaneous detection of Raman and fluorescence emissions. Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic method that provides information about molecular bonds in target materials. F ...
