  1. Small, Cheap, Smart, and Simple

    SBC: CORPORA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops an electronic mobility aid for individuals with low vision or blindness to prevent collision with overhanging obstacles not detected by standard methods such as the cane. This electronic mobility aid fulfills the criteria of (1) small size, (2) low cost, (3) low cognitive demands, and (4) hands-free operation. Phase I of the project focuses on novel algorithms to minimize cog ...

  3. Planet Energy First World

    SBC: One Planet Education Network (OPEN) LLC            Topic: N/A

    Planet First Energy Worlds will be a 3D virtual environment focused on energy-related topics that address mathematics and science standards for 6th grade. The curricula embedded within the intervention will focus on inquiry scenarios and will leverage disciplinary content to address different situations using a video game format immersed in 3-D technology. The games will take two days of class tim ...

  5. Low Thermal Resistance Integrated Package and Heat Sink for HEV IGBT Modules

    SBC: ADVANCED THERMAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 06c

    There is a growing demand for power electronics that can operate under the high temperature and high power conditions that will be encountered in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV). As the coolant temperature used to dissipate heat from electronics increases, the operation of power semiconductor devices such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) becomes severely limited in order that the safe ...

  6. Recovery Act- Vaporization Cooling for IGCC Turbines

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    Electrical power generation consumes a large fraction of the nations fossil fuel, notably coal, and produces significant CO2 emissions. Gas turbine based cycles such as IGCC are constrained by turbine component temperature limits, and consequently have potential for lower fuel consumption and emissions. A novel, highly effective technology for cooling rotating turbine components has been under exp ...

  7. Chemical Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer for Particle and Gas-Phase Organic Speciation

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 32c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass. Re ...

  8. High Sensitivity SO2 Monitor using Quantum Cascade Laser IR Absorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 32d

    SO2 is an important ubiquitous aerosol precursor with anthropogenic, biogenic and geogenic sources. The sulfate aerosol produced from atmospheric oxidation of SO2 has a negative radiative forcing component that is highly uncertain due to its direct and indirect effects. Due to its potency as a remote clean atmosphere aerosol precursor and its capability to modify cloud properties, SO2 is a `short ...

  9. Dual Quantum Cascade Laser System For Simultaneous Measurements of 13CH4 and CH3D Methan Isotopolgues

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    Methane is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2 yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Monitoring the isotopic composition of atmospheric methane is one of the most promising approaches to closing the methane budget. Detailed process studies of isotopic fractionation associated with methane sinks and sources are also crucial. For both p ...

  10. Micromegas Particle Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 46b

    Improvements in high energy particle accelerator detectors are needed to realize their potential for new discoveries in basic physics. The micromegas detector could achieve the best performance and lowest cost for the large structures required. Reducing critical dimensions and optimizing material choices is expected to increase gain, count rate and stability. Agiltron will use new lithography ap ...
