  1. Megapixel Uncooled Photomechanical LWIR Imager

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    Agiltron has developed a breakthrough modular IR imaging technology that employs a photomechanical effect, in which an array of micro-machined sensor pixels converts IR radiation into visible light signals that can be optically detected by commercial off-the-shelf CMOS or CCD visible-light imagers. With commercial CMOS imagers achieving multi-megapixel resolution, the resolution of the modular Agi ...

  2. High Resolution Long Wave Infrared Focal Plane Array Development

    SBC: NANTERO, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    Infrared (IR) detection is an integral part of the Global War on terrorism. Vandium Oxide based micro-bolometers are the current state of the art in uncooled IRFPA. The need for higher resolution 1280X960 arrays that operate at low power for man-portable applications include 24 hour surveillance and targeting . Carbon Nanotube (CNT) based IR detectors could fill this need. CNTs have unique electri ...

  3. An Integrated Membrane-based Process Train for Reducing Costs of Ethanol Production

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of ethanol derived from starch crops and biomass is forecast to grow considerably in the next decade. There exist opportunities for significant reductions in ethanol production costs and associated energy usage via employment of innovative process operations. Many of these processes involve membranes, which provide cost savings due primarily to reduced energy consumption. Recently, new ...

  4. Fouling-Resistant Inorganic MF Membrane for Improved Food and Beverage Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened, especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites. Varroa destructor, in particular, is lethal to many colonies, decimating both feral and managed honey ...

  5. Development of acoustic cavitation based affordable milk processing technology for small rural dairy farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Milk supply by the small dairy farms to the local markets not only reduces transportation costs but also provides cultural and economic benefits to the communities. However, the majority of the milk processing operations are carried out in large plants at the wholesale level. Such capacities and the large capital requirement act as a barrier to entry for small farmers and prohibit them to get a b ...

  6. Biofuel Production by Continuous Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) Ferementation Coupled with Membrane Separation

    SBC: Porogen Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Butanol is a liquid fuel superior to ethanol that can be produced from renewable biomass by the acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation process. However, the ABE fermentation process economics is hampered by low conversion rate due to severe product inhibition and by energy intensive product recovery (traditionally by distillation). The overall objective of this combined Phase I and Phase II pr ...
