  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  2. Passive Anti-Resonance (PAR) Vibration Isolator

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N191015

    Whole-body vibration is one of the factors causing military aircrew discomfort and pain during and after flight operations. Health risks are a concern after only a few hours of continuous flight at the seating positions on some aircraft. Safe proposes to develop a passive vibration isolator that isolates an entire helicopter crew seat at its floor attachments. The isolator adjusts automatically to ...

  3. Passive Occupant Weight Relief (POWR) Harness

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N191015

    Aircrew back pain is a significant factor affecting aircrew mission endurance and effectiveness and increasing costs for medical treatment and disability. The weight of the survival vest on the shoulders contributes to the poor posture of helicopter pilots (the helo hunch) and compresses the spine for the full duration of each mission, while also increasing the spinal compressive load in a crash. ...

  4. Thermoelectrically Cooled Cushion for Dynamically Qualified Seats

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N191015

    Aircrew back pain is a widespread problem causing lower aircrew endurance, reduced mission effectiveness, and increased costs for treatment and rehabilitation. Better seat pan and back cushions can mitigate the problem but changing the cushion on a dynamically qualified (crash tested) seat is a complex engineering problem because the cushion affects the crash protection of the spine. Safe, Inc. (S ...

  5. Composite Cushion for Seated Aircrew Endurance

    SBC: Force Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N191015

    SBIR Phase I proposal for an innovative Composite Seat Cushion (CSC) design concept that improves vibration isolation, static and dynamic comfort, and reduces fatigue. The CSC design concept imbeds air cushions or gel cushion in foams to correct body-seat interface pressure distribution and lower peak and average pressure. Shear thickening materials are used to tailor properties according to load ...

  6. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  9. MWIR polarization maintaining single mode fibers

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N191012

    Most infrared lasers emit light that is strongly polarized and require polarization maintaining fibers to preserve the launched-light polarization state as it propagates through the fiber. While polarization maintaining fibers are commercially available in the visible, near infrared and short wavelength infrared, the silica glasses used for these fibers have extremely high optical loss in the mid ...
