  1. DroN2O: A Drone-Based System for Measuring Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Agricultural Fields

    SBC: MICHIGAN AEROSPACE CORP            Topic: 1

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an inexpensive system to sense nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural fields using laser-based sensors mounted on drones. These sensors include an optical absorption cell, a wind sensor, and a camera for plant health and ground assessment. The measurements from these sensors will be combined and processed with artificial-intelligence-enab ...

  2. Flexible Low Temperature CO2 Capture System, E-CACHYS

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 1

    This project focuses on the design, integration and optimization of a flexible natural gas combined cycle plant with carbon capture, capable of operating in a highly variable renewable energy environment. Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power offer unique solutions in our quest to reduce global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. However, the increasing penetration of these high variab ...

  3. SOFCs for FLIGHT

    SBC: PRECISION COMBUSTION INC            Topic: 1

    PCI’s is proposing an advanced energy storage and power generator design for meeting aggressive specific-power and specific-energy targets required for all-electric propulsion of narrow-body commercial aircraft. Key drivers are an exceptionally power-dense solid oxide fuel cell operating with energy-dense carbon neutral liquid fuels and a hybridized system architecture that maximizes component e ...

  4. High Rate Ammonia Synthesis by Intermediate Temperature Solid-State Alkaline Electrolyzer (ITSAE)

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Ammonia is not only one of the most produced chemicals worldwide for fertilizer, but also a real carbon-neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), which is important for renewable energy storage and transportation. The well-known traditional Haber-Bosch (HB) process annually generates more than 120 million metric tons of ammonia for fertilizer, with about ~1.0% of the world’s annual energy consumpti ...

  5. A Bidirectional, Transformerless Converter Topology for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: Opcondys, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Grid-tied energy storage systems provide stabilization to the electric grid that is necessary to accommodate the growing percentage of electricity generated by intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Existing conversion systems between the storage media and the utility lines are large, costly and only 95%-98% energy efficient. In this ARPA-E project, Opcondys, Inc. will build ...

  6. A stable, low cost, low power CO2 sensor for demand controlled ventilation

    SBC: Matrix Sensors, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    We propose to develop a stable, low-cost, low power CO2 sensor module that meets the requirements of the ARPA-E SENSORS FOA, namely, 30 ppm precision over a dynamic range of 400 ppm to 2000 ppm with 10 ppm drift per year. Existing optical non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors simply cannot scale to the cost and power requirements of the FOA. We therefore propose a solid state architecture t ...

  8. Renewable electricity-powered carbon dioxide conversion to ethanol for storage and transportation

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Cost-effective electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the atmosphere, is the holy grail of green chemistry. Using only water and electricity as other inputs, ECO2R has been demonstrated to produce ethanol with pure oxygen as a co-product. Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be used in fuel cells, reformed to make hydrogen, or burned in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol produced from air ...

  9. Large Volume Composite Scintillators

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: HSB0161012

    The goal of this program is to produce large-volume composite scintillators using smaller, cheap-to-produce CLYC crystals, as gamma-neutron radiation detectors, for use in portable detection equipment for homeland security, and monitoring of nuclear material accountability.

  10. Automated Assessment of Urban Environment Degradation for Disaster Relief and Reconstruction

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181004

    Toyon Research Corp. proposes development of a software prototype for automated 3D damage assessment in urban environments. We will document the requirements for the algorithms and software, and optimize or extend the algorithms as needed. We will implement the software prototype, leveraging and integrating existing components where possible and implementing new components as needed. We will qua ...
