  1. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  3. Low Profile Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SOCOM14005

    High speed combatant craft utilized by SOCOM, such as the Riverine (SOC-R), use pumped raw water to provide engine cooling for the twin marine diesel engines. While raw water provides an essentially limitless heat sink, it often contains debris which can clog engine strainers, causing the engines to overheat. Thus, engine performance, as well as maintenance, is negatively affected by the use of th ...

  4. Hard X-ray Area Detector Using Direct Converter Layer

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    Synchrotron radiation is a powerful tool for measuring structural properties of materials. Important applications of higher energy synchrotron X-rays include measurement of strain and material evolution during processing, studies of composite materials and studies of layered systems such as environmental-barrier coatings, metal- nitride coatings and solid oxide fuel cells. Detector requirements fo ...

  5. One Micrometer Resolution Structured Scintillator for Hard X-Ray Image Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 03c

    Next generation three dimensional (3D) X-ray imaging requires novel x-ray scintillating materials with high efficiency and high spatial resolution. Using a conventional homogeneous scintillator plate, there is a compromise between efficiency and spatial resolution. The strong coupling between spatial resolution and efficiency renders difficulty for conventional scintillators to be used for high re ...

  6. Fast-Timing Large-Area Detector for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 06a

    The two reflectometers at SNS serve rapidly growing communities in the fields of nanoscience, membrane bioscience, surfactant chemistry. Unique capabilities of these instruments include ultrahigh neutron intensity for in-plane diffraction and off-specular/grazing- incidence small-angle scattering measurements, and the combination of reflectometry and high- angle diffraction for resolving large-s ...

  7. High Temperature High Efficiency PEM Electrolysis

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    Electrolysis of water is an important tool for automotive hydrogen refueling and renewable energy storage applications. The current membranes for electrolysis suffer from low efficiency, low mechanical strength and high hydrogen crossover at the high pressures needed for direct refueling. The DOE has identified a need for high-pressure electrolyzer efficiencies to reach 76% based on lower heating ...

  8. R2R Production of Low-Cost Integrated OLED Substrate With Improved Transparent Conductor & Enhanced Light Outcoupling

    SBC: MICROCONTINUUM, INC.            Topic: 13c

    In order to meet national energy goals, DOE has set aggressive R & amp;D targets for advanced manufacturing technology to produce high efficiency organic LED (OLED) solid-state lighting (SSL) products. Achieving these goals will result in significant energy savings, cost reductions, and enhancement of the quality of the lighted environment. However, performance and cost issues are preventing the ...

  9. Bonding of Impermeable SiC Ceramic Nuclear Reactor Components

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 16b

    The high temperature operation of Generation IV nuclear systems will require silicon carbide ceramic composites in the reactor core to minimize operational costs and enhance safety. Currently, no ceramic composite fabrication method has been successfully demonstrated that enables rapid, affordable bonding of impermeable SiC subcomponents to each other. The bonding technology will be a critical com ...

  10. Development of a Chemical Ionization Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometer for Characterizing the Role of Organic Amines in New Particle Formation

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 17d

    Aerosol particles are known to affect the global climate through cloud formation. Globally, it is believed that ~50% of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) originate from atmospheric new particle formation and growth. Sulfuric acid vapor plays a key role in new particle formation, although detailed mechanisms remain unclear. Recent experiments have shown that trace levels of organic amine vapors ca ...
