  1. Real Time Particle Size and Settling Velocity for In-Situ Monitoring of Deep-Sea Polymetallic Nodule Mining

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: G

    In the coming decade, it is anticipated that deep-sea mining activities will commence throughout the deep ocean, at depths around 4000-6000m. At these depths, vast resources of minerals such as cobalt, copper and nickel, which are needed to produce batteries for electric vehicles for example, are present in the form of baseball-sized rocks called polymetallic nodules lying on the seabed. Collector ...

  2. A Blubber- or Dorsal Fin-Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Ph ...

  3. Novel electrochemical membrane reactor for synthesis of NH3 from air and water at low temperature and low pressure

    SBC: Molecule Works Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    This proposal aims to develop a new, compact reactor for production of ammonia from air and water with renewable electricity. The conversion is carried out in a solid-state alkaline electrochemical cell at temperatures below 200oC and pressures below 10bar. Water vapor and N2 gas are fed into cathode side of the cell to form ammonia and hydroxide ions. As ammonia is produced from the cathode, the ...

  4. Commercial Space Vehicle Tracking Using 1090 MHz ADS-B

    SBC: M42 Technologies, LLC            Topic: 142FA1

    The number of commercial space vehicles including launch and reentry vehicles, and high-altitude balloons is growing, and new technology is needed to minimize their impact on the National Airspace System (NAS). Currently the FAA issues Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) to reserve large airspace sections for long periods of time for launches and reentries. Automatic Direct Surveillance Broadcas ...

  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 ...

  7. RADIATION

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WOULD EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A WATER FOG OR SPRAY GENERATOR TO CONTROL ON BOARD AIRCRAFT FIRES BY ATTENUATING RADIATIVE HEAT TRANSFER . INFRARED (IR) RADIATION FROM THE FLAME MAINTAINS COMBUSITION OF THE BURNING SURFACE AND AIDS IN THEINGITION OF COLD SURFACES--THEREBY SPREADING THE FIRE. OPTIMAL USE WILL NEED TO BE MADE OF THE WATER, SINCE IT WILLBE CARRIED ON ...

  10. Meis System for Inspection of Pipeline Coating

    SBC: HD LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Coating disbond on buried pipelines contineus to be a major problem world-wide. Disbonds left unrepaired promote both corrosion and stress-corrosion cracking, which are much more costly to repair. Improved inspection technology is currently needed to detect and characterize disbonds. HD Laboratories, Inc. proposes to refine and test a novel method of detecting and assessing coating disbonds and ...
