  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  5. Enhanced Ozone Treatment of Wastewater With Perfluoromembranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ozone treatment of wastewater to destroy organic contaminants prior to discharge into the environment is an extremely effective advanced oxidation technology. To date the use of this powerful technology has been limited in part by the relatively high capital costs of an efficient ozone to water, gas-liquid, mass transfer system. Existing ozone injection devices must overcome the inherently low m ...

  6. Reduced NOx/Hydrocarbon Emissions via Oxygen Enriched Lean Burn Engines

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lean burn spark engines are a promising technique to further reduce both NOx and hydrocarbon/carbon monoxide (HC/CO) engine emissions. Higher lean burn levels improve HC/CO oxidation while simultaneously reducing NOx formation. The NOx reduction is due to cooler flame temperatures. While the lean burn limit (beyond which combustion is poor) restricts further emission reductions, the use of oxyg ...

  7. Using Scrap Tires to Save up to 100 Million Dollars Per Year by Mitigating Bridge Flood Damage

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will investigate using scrap tires to form a protective system for mitigating local scour around bridge piers. Local scour is the erosion of the riverbed around bridge piers, which is induced by the recirculating juncture flow at the intersection of the pier and the riverbed. Bridge failure caused by this phenomenon has long been an important issue with respect to both publi ...

  8. Particulate and Vapor State Metallic Emissions Monitor

    SBC: ENVIMETRICS            Topic: N/A

    The Clean Air Act of 1990 has raised the concern over trace concentrations of metals in flue gas from electrical generation plants, municipal waste incinerators, and heavy industrial plants. Monitoring will be required to determine the environmental impact and offers an opportunity to empirically minimize it. In flue gas, metals are found in both the vapor state and condensed on fly ash. For sp ...

  9. The Development of a Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid

    SBC: MATERIAL INNOVATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I research project, Material Innovation, Inc., will develop a biodegradable and environmentally benign hydraulic fluid that minimizes hazardous pollution caused by accidental fluid spillage, lowers disposal costs of the used fluid, and helps the user industry to comply with environmental safety regulations. The operating temperature range for this hydraulic fluid will be from -54?C ...

  10. Conversion of Paper-Mill Sludge Into Pelletized, Composite Activated Sorbent

    SBC: MBR Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will test the feasibility of converting paper mill sludge or filter-cake (FC), which is typically landfilled or incinerated and is a major environmental concern, into pelletized, composite sorbent of activated carbon and highly porous clay. There are currently more than 500 paper mills in the United States, each generating from 10 to more than 100 dry-tons of FC each day. Th ...
