  3. A Compact Membrane Reactor Methanol Reformer

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T011

    Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells require a relatively pure, concentrated hydrogen stream, with very low levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in order to prevent poisoning of the fuel cell anode catalyst. In addition, removing inerts and impurities (such as CO2) from the hydrogen feed to the fuel cell increases a fuel cell’s electrical conversion efficiency. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), in ...

  4. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  5. A fast response, open flow, integrating nephelometer for fine scale measurements of aerosol and cloud particles

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: N08190

    An integrating nephelometer is proposed that can be deployed on a variety of platforms including powered aircraft and towed vehicles. The design allows air to pass freely through the sample cell with no restrictions. A sampling rate of up to 100 hz will allow for aerosol flux measurements. The light scattering coefficient will be measured at multiple wavelengths to provide angstrom coefficien ...

  6. A fiberglass/Kevlar-reinforced-polymer honeycomb panel concept for an OHC-IFP.

    SBC: Industrial Honeycomb Structure            Topic: N/A

    As a candidate OHC-IFP panel concept, Industrial Honeycomb Structures, Inc. proposes an innovative fiber-reinforced-polymer honeycomb core material sandwiched between two fiber-reinforced- polymer skins. These materials are light weight, high strength, tough, resilient, and highly producible, but need to be qualified for ballistic protection. The honeycomb cores appear promising as a means for lim ...

  7. A Hybrid Expert System And Neural Network

    SBC: DEVELOSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A difficult problem of software configuration control is to determine the effects of a contractor's change to "frozen" software. The test team must ascertain the extent and nature of changes and how much regression testing may be needed. A hybrid integration of an artificial neural network (ANN) and knowledge-based expert system (KBE) is proposed to provide parameterized estimates for effects due ...

  8. A LOW-POWER, HIGH-SPEED, MULTIPLE-CHANNEL TRANSIENT RECORDER (Q-DOT RESEARCH PROPOSAL 1288)

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Q-DOT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A LOW-COST, HIGH-PERFORMANCE TRANSIENT RECORDER FOR USE IN HIGH-ENERGY PHYSICS EXPERIMENTS. HERETOFORE, THE RECORDING OF SOMPLETE, AMPLITUDE VS. TIME HISTORIES FROM DETECTORS HAS BEEN DESIRABLE BUT PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE AND LIMITED IN VERSATILITY. SINGLE-CHANNEL PER CHIP, 1 GS/S TRANSIENT RECORDERS USING CHARGE-COUPLED DEVICES (CCDS) HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE CAPABILITY OF ...

  9. A MEMS Pulsed Injection Electrostatic Atomizer for Small Engines

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A08T012

    The Army needs energy dense, portable power generation and propulsion units. In order to reduce the consumables and simplify logistics, very small engines (defined as a power rating of less than 5 hP) need to be fueled with readily available logistic fuels, such as JP-8 and diesel. Unfortunately, these fuels are extremely difficult to vaporize and burn, which has hindered their use in spark igni ...

  10. A Novel Approach to Impregnating Structural Resin into Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Assemblies to Yield Ultrahigh-Loaded Polymer Nanocomposites

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N08T017

    The primary objective of this program is the investigation of new approaches to achieve well-dispersed ultrahigh loading of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in structural resins for advanced composites. “Well-dispersed” means CNTs that are optimally dispersed for achieving desired properties like strength, modulus, toughness, and thermal conductivity, rather than uniformly dispersed CNTs. Phase I will ...
