  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  2. Advanced Rotorcraft Aerodynamic Modules for Flight Testing Support, Simulation and Analysis

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N04257

    Accurate performance prediction is crucial to the simulation, analysis and flight testing support of rotorcraft. In this regard, current analysis tools inadequately model key phenomena like blade dynamic stall, rotor tip loads, and rotor downwash because of their failure to predict the true unsteady three-dimensional nature of the aerodynamic environment near the rotor. Continuum Dynamics, Inc. ...

  3. High Power Phase Shifters

    SBC: F&H APPLIED SCIENCE ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N04057

    Recent advent, and significant progress made in the wide-band-gap semiconductor technology offer today a promise for a superior high power phase shifter. More specifically, emerging Gallium Nitrate (GaN) HEMT devices are shown to operate in extreme temperatures (~600C), exhibiting high breakdown voltages (~100V) and high current densities (~1.5A/mm). In order to meet these challenging technical re ...

  4. Oil-in-Water Emulsion Breaking System for Bilge Water

    SBC: FILTRATION SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: N03206

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative design that utilizes ozone to break the oil-in-water emulsion stability in bilge water by oxidation. Ozone, a very strong oxidant, is capable of reacting with many substances by either directly or indirectly attacking the bonding substrates. This process can convert surfactant coated oil into a non-polar sensitive ...

  5. Thermal Imaging of the Head for the Sensing and Identification of Concealed Intent

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: N04144

    There are immediate needs for fast and cost-effective detection of concealed information or intent in homeline security applications such as border control, critical facility access. Unfortunately, traditional polygraph is not suited for this type of fast screening applications because it requires invasive contacts and extra time to administer. To meet today demand, new modalities have to be studi ...

  6. Embedded Pressure Sensors for Automation and Control of Fluid Valves

    SBC: Marotta Controls, Inc.            Topic: N04220

    The US Navy continues to research and develop advanced automation technologies to reduce the manning required to operate the next generation of combatants, without compromising platform survivability. One of the most manpower-intensive activities is damage control, during which time critical systems are shut down or re-routed to keep the ship operational. Sailors have typically been the only mea ...

  7. Comprehensive Spectrum Management for Wireless Networks

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N04214

    To mitigate the parasitic characteristics of radio channel, an intelligent RF control plane is desired. Spectrum Management for shipboard wireless modems, consideration for on shore equipment support, emphasis on exiting Wireless LAN protocols (802.11) with consideration for ultra wideband and even IR WLANs, are all required for maximizing radio functionality without having to maximize radio exper ...

  8. Anti-Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) Technologies


    The inexpensive RPG has caused havoc with US armored vehicles since WWII. Therefore, MSI has conceived of an active protection system that consists of six evenly spaced stationary horizontal gun tubes, able to shoot projectiles containing thousands of tungsten balls toward an RPG firing, as detected by infrared sensors between gun tubes. The frangible ogive that contains the balls is designed to ...

  9. Task-scheduling for distributed system design

    SBC: OpCoast LLC            Topic: N04069

    The development and maintenance of large distributed software systems remains a difficult problem. We propose a targeted effort that will improve system management (such as version control / configuration management) while providing system analysis via task scheduling in a self-consistent manner. Although the approach is high-level in that it is targeted at the ability to handle thousands of softw ...

  10. Ruggedized Laser Diode Package for Wavelength Division Multiplexed (WDM) Networks

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N04003

    Advanced Navy platforms will need to transfer enormous amounts of data between sensors, data processors, storage systems and users. WDM networks offer the best possible solution to the bandwidth requirement. Tunable laser based WDM networks have many advantages over the fixed wavelength laser based networks which are rapid adaptability of the network resulting in improved efficiency and survivabi ...
