  1. Extremely Lightweight Fuel Cell Based Power Supply System for Commercial Aircrafts

    SBC: Fuceltech Inc            Topic: 1

    Fuceltech proposes to develop a low cost lightweight Energy Storage and Power Generation (ESPG) system for commercial aircrafts in the ARPA-E REEACH program. Fuceltech will develop a single fuel cell (5kW to be developed in the program and potentially as high as 10kW from a single cell) and a novel stacking approach which can be used to deliver hundreds of kW or MWs of power from a single small an ...

  2. INNOVATIVE LAYERED COMPOSITE METAL DECK SYSTEM

    SBC: Acrow Corporation Of America            Topic: 20FH2

    This project investigates an innovative modular steel bridge deck system of a “sandwich” design for achieving the necessary stiffness in orthogonal directions employing two steel plates separated by a steel stiffening core.Such a layered composite deck could become an ideal solution for the next generation of bridge applications.With the appropriate choice of the core profile, the transverse s ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Biomimetic Adhesives for Restoration of Coral Reefs

    SBC: WARDENCLYFFE CHEMICALS, INC.            Topic: 9201

    Restoration of coral reefs is dependent upon an ability to adhere young corals, grown in tanks, onto inorganic substrates within the seas. The epoxies in current use do not provide a viable path to restoration owing to poor adhesion underwater, lengthy mixing of components needed, clouds of toxic epoxy precursors released into the water, and extensive diver time needed to clean the underlying cora ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. CORROSION DETECTION IN AGING AIRCRAFT

    SBC: PHYSICAL ACOUSTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FOR THE DETECTION OF CORROSION IN AGING AIRCRAFT USING ACOUSTIC EMISSION MONITORING IS PROPOSED. CORROSION WILL BE LOCATED THROUGH THE EFFECT THAT IT HAS ON AIRFRAME STRENGTH (10% THINNING RESULTS IN 50% FATIGUE LIFE REDUCTION). ACOUSTIC EMISSION TECHNOLOGY USED ON THE F-111 FIGHTER/BOMBER WILL BE ADAPTED FOR USE ON COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT. PRELIMINARY CONCEPT TESTING ON A BOEING 720B HAS RE ...
