  1. Advanced Hybrid Thermoelectric-Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Energy Conversion for High Efficiency Portable Power

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP4

    The proposal would provide the design and basic product development work to augment the power generation efficiency of fuel cells developed by Acumentrics Corp. by converting waste heat into electricity by highly efficient thermoelectric (TE) power generation. Three paths will be explored in Phase I to add a TE generator to the SOFC. The first will explore the use of a material that is used in co ...

  2. Digital Method for Improved Custom Hearing Protection Equipment

    SBC: ShapeStart Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N08153

    The DoD spends over $1 Billion annually on disability payments attributed to hearing loss, yet this can be prevented. Research shows that with proper hearing protection a 19% reduction in hearing loss cases can be expected. Custom ear plugs force the user to wear the devices correctly and to retain hearing protection during activity, thus eliminating improper seating issues as the primary cause o ...

  3. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...

  4. Replacement of Albemet and Beryllium based Materials for F-35 Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: N08128

    Beryllium replacement for the F-35 program is essential in meeting safety, performance and budget concerns for the program. The APS program utilizes its several years experience and existing materials to provide replacements for Beryllium based materials (both Albemet and Beryllium). Significant design and coupon level testing will be f=performed in Phase I to enable potential insertion of new an ...

  5. Next generation Combat System Development Approach


    The design, development, testing, and maintenance of future complex combat systems will require new approaches and technologies. Present software technologies are limited by the fact that the computing system architectural layers and software components are not integrated. New software technologies are needed to adopt a more integrated view of the system architectural layers and software component ...

  7. WDM Based True Time Delay Array for Advanced RF Beamforming

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N08167

    An innovative concept for a scalable true time delay (TTD) array for digital beamforming is proposed. The concept is photonics and fiber optic wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) based and will support transmit/receive applications over the 1 to 20 GHz, extendable up to V bands. The design provides a digitally controlled true time delay array for beamforming effectively adaptive to Navy phased ...
