  1. A High Efficiency SACI 1 kW Generator System with Integrated Waste Energy Recovery

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    We propose a novel high efficiency (≈40%) generator system capable of providing 1 kWe along with hot water on-demand. The integration of two novel concepts: 1) an internal combustion engine (ICE) operating on Spark-Assisted Compression Ignition (SACI) combustion of natural gas (NG), and 2) a bottoming Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) with waste energy recovery (WER) from ICE exhaust enables the overa ...

  4. All Solid-State Rechargeable Batteries for Throttleable Divert and Attitude Control Systems (TDACS)

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: MDA13005

    A key design feature affecting the performance and reliability of TDACS is the on-board energy storage system. Current systems utilize thermal batteries to meet their on-board energy storage needs. However, current thermal batteries have several notable limitations that can negatively impact mission assurance. Most notable are their relatively low energy density, their manufacturing complexity, ...

  5. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...

  6. Commercial Verde

    SBC: Fernandez, Steven            Topic: 851

    Public and commercial application of NOAA developed products such as climate observations, weather products, and datasets are underutilized by public decision makers, infrastructure asset owners, or the public. Communities realize the risk posed by increases in storm intensity, flooding, and heat waves. However, communities lack understandable models targets to stakeholder questions that are affor ...

  7. Portable high precision nitrogen gas analyzer for eddy covariance flux measurements

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 861X

    Recent theoretical studies of eddy flux correlation have suggested that the commonly used assumption of dry air having no net flux is erroneous and can lead to significant errors in reported observations. Presently, dry air density is calculated indirectly from measured temperature, pressure and relative humidity, all of which contribute to increased uncertainties in the result. If instead the den ...

  8. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  9. Modular Visible Signature Improvements

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: MDA13014

    Computer signature simulation in the visible band faces several unique challenges: availability of Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) data, accurate modeling of BRDF in software, and modeling of reflected earth albedo illumination, which has high spatial and temporal variation. Stellar Science and Surface Optics Corporation (SOC) have teamed to provide a hardware and software ...

  10. Thermal Ground Planes for High Power Solid-State Lasers

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA13022

    A key challenge toward future directed energy systems is the development of power and thermal management technologies needed to support the laser systems, particularly pump diodes.I2C Solutions and the University of Colorado have developed a Thermal Ground Plane (TGP) technology that interfaces with doide laser bars in order to spread heat and transport it to the laser cooling loop.During Phase II ...
