  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. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  3. High-quality, low-cost GaN single crystal substrates for high-power devices

    SBC: Fairfield Crystal Technology            Topic: 1

    The proposed project is to demonstrate a novel technique for producing GaN single-crystal boules that yield GaN wafers and substrates suitable for fabrication of GaN high-power devices. The two key attributes of the proposed novel GaN growth technique (a bulk crystal growth technique) are: a high growth rate and an ability to achieve a superior crystal quality. The novel GaN crystal growth techn ...

  4. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  5. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  6. TRIPLE ENERGY X-RAY IMAGING DETECTOR

    SBC: Advanced Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BASED ON THE LASTEST ACHIEVEMENTS IN RADIATION DETECTION, A NOVEL IMAGING DETECTOR SITULTANEOUSLY RECORDING X-RAY IMAGING AT THREE SEPARATE ENERGIES IN PROPOSED. ACCORDING TO PRELIMINARY COMPUTATIONAL PREDICTATIONS THE DETECTOR IS EXPECTED TO HAVE EXCELLENT ENERGY SELECTION, EXCELLENT MEASUREMENT ACCURACY AND HIGH DETECTION SENSITIVITY. NEW DATA ANALYSIS APPROACH IS ALSO PREPOSED TO BEST UTILIZE T ...

  8. UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT.

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT. THESE STANDARDS ARE SET TO AVOID A LANDING ENCOUNTER WITH A VORTEX WAKE. IF AN ONBOARD VORTEX SENSOR AN ESCAPE SYSTEM COULD BE DEVELOPED WHICH IS BOTH RELIABLE AND INEXPENSIVE, THE A AVIATION COMMUNITY COULD BENEFIT BY DECREASED TERMINAL DELAYS WITHOUT COMPROMISING SAFETY. THE CONCEPT TO BE ST ...

  10. Reducing Traffic Pressure During Hazmat Incidents By Utilizing Situation Awareness Capabilities

    SBC: Drakontas LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal responds to DOT topic 081-PH2 "Hazardous Materials (Using Handheld Devices to Assist in Emergency Response to Hazardous Materials Incidents)." The significant innovation in this project involves extending cutting edge tools developed to enhance situation awareness among first responders with appropriate hazmat and traffic information to create a framework for interperting traffic re ...
