  1. Enhanced Drying of Pipeline Ethanol

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H

    There continues to be a need for low cost production and shipment of fuel-grade ethanol from agricultural sources. Ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages including developing fuel independence and significantly reducing greenhouse gases. Also, bio-ethanol has significant value as an oxygenated and octane improver. Although ethanol from agricultural sources has many advantages, th ...

  2. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  3. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this SBIR effort we will design (Phase I) and demonstrate (Phase II) an integrated silicon electronic-photonic upconversion receiver that when used with our photonic backend will allow for a highly sensitive, real-time, and economical millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system. The development of this chip leverages recent progress in CMOS and SiGe HBT high speed analog circuit design and integrates ...

  4. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  5. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  6. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Herein, PSI proposes to leverage extensive development in the area of optically sampled passive millimeter-wave imaging to develop dual mode active/passive imagers that provide both the intuitive, real-time imagery of a passive imager and the ranging capabilities of an active sensor. To accomplish this task, an optically sampled millimeter-wave receive array is sampled via optical pulsed laser gat ...

  7. Real-Time Millimeter-Wave Holography for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVE) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  8. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    A new class of high-performance, low-SWaP computational devices is emerging based on increasingly diverse architectures. This diversity is improving performance, but comes at the cost of increased programming complexity. Each architecture requires variances in programming environment and model, typically distinguished by the type of parallelism supported by the hardware, limiting software portabil ...

  9. Many-Core Acceleration of Common Graph Programming Frameworks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB152004

    Graph analytics is a key component in identifying emerging trends and threats in many real-world applications. Large-scale graph analytics frameworks provide a convenient and highly scalable platform for developing algorithms to analyze large datasets. Although conceptually scalable, these techniques exhibit poor performance on modern computational hardware. Another model of graph computation has ...

  10. Real-Time Camera-Independent Image Processing System For Long-Range Tactical Imaging Applications

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: A15026

    We propose to identify the algorithms, architectures and performance evaluation criteria for real-time, high-resolution, long-range imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The most promising algorithms will be implemented on a hardware acceleration platform. The end-goal for phase 1 is to develop a complete system design ready to be implemented in hardware for real-time video processing of 2Kx2K v ...
