  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. 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. SBIR Phase II: Regenerative Freeze Suppression for Thermally Bound Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: REBOUND TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: EI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project includes peak demand relief for utilities, reduced freezer operating costs for retail stores, and natural refrigerants for regulators. Unfortunately, no state-ofthe- art system simultaneously addresses all these issues. Industrial/commercial batteries remain unaffordable, refrigeration costs account for 60% of a retail store?s electricity bil ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Using microbial genetic data to improve oil production efficiency and reduce environmental impact

    SBC: UC2            Topic: BC

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will be to increase the efficiency of domestic oil production. Using current methods, the oil industry is able to extract only 5% of the known hydrocarbon from shale formation. This represents more than $500B of potential oil and gas that cannot be economically produced for the US economy. Th ...

  10. 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 ...
