  1. A STAGED FLUID BED CONTACTOR FOR THE ECONOMIC THERMAL DESTRUCTION OF TOXIC CHEMICALS ON SOILS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS, IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS. IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS MUST BE RELOCATED AND MANY ACRE-FEET OF SOIL MUST BE EXCAVA-TED AND TREATED OR STORED IN "SAFE" STORAGE FACILITIES. IM-PROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO REDUCE CLEAN-UP CO ...

  2. COMPREHENSIVE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL USING THE ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS

    SBC: Energy Sciences Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS WILL BE INVESTI- GATED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DESTROY TOXIC MOLECULES SUCH AS DIOXINS, FURANS, AND POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCAR- CARBONS PRODUCED, FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE. SOME ISOMERS OF THESE COMPOUNDS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC; THEREFORE,THE WORK WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING NON-TOXIC MODEL COMPOUNDS EXHIBITING CHEMICAL FUNC ...

  4. TECHNOLOGY FOR DETOXIFYING SOLID AND LIQUID ORGANIC WASTE

    SBC: Synlize Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN PHASE I, RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DEVELOP AN AP- PROACH FOR A NEW COST-EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY TO MINERALIZE A WIDE VARIETY OF TOXIC ORGANIC COMPOUNDS WHICH OCCUR IN LARGEAMOUNTS IN SOLID AND LIQUID INDUSTRIAL WATES. THIS APPROACH EMPLOYS PHOTOPROMOTED SOLID-CATALYZED OXIDATIVE DEGRADATION TO CONVERT THE TOXIC COMPOUNDS TO EN- VIRONMENTALLY COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS, NAMELY, CO2 FROM CHEMICALLY BOU ...

  6. TUNABLE HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING INFRARED DETECTORS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SUPERSONDUCTOR BASED INFRARED DETECTOR WITH A CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE SENSITIVITY IS PROPOSED. THE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILM IS TO HAVE A POLYCRYSTALLINE NATURE TO ACHIEVE JOSEPHSON JUNCTION BEHAVIOR DIRECTLY THROUGH THE ANISOTROPIC SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES OF YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X). THE DEPOSITION SUBSTRATE IS TO BE AN OXYGEN ION CONDUCTOR THAT WILL PERMIT CONTINUOUS AND CONTROLLED ADJUSTMENT OF THE ...

  7. REMOTELY OPERATED MINE DETECTION SYSTEM

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CAPABILITY EXISTS TO DETECT MAGNETIC, NONMAGNETIC, METALLIC AND PLASTIC BURIED AND SURFACE SCATTERED MINES THROUGH THE USE OF A SIMPLE SUITE OF SENSORS FROM THE SURFACE. THE CAPABILITY ALSO EXISTS TO DESIGN, BUILD, AND OPERATE A LOW COST REMOTE CONTROLLED PLATFORM FOR CARRYING THIS SUITE OF SENSORS. BOTH TECHNOLOGIES ARE CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT AND/OR BEING DEMONSTRATED AT FOSTER-MILLER, I ...

  8. LEADING EDGE STRUCTURAL CONCEPT FOR HYPERVELOCITY VEHICLE

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR PROBLEM FACING PHYPERSONIC VEHICLE DESIGNERS IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLIGHT STRUCTURES WHICH CAN WITHSTAND MULTIPLE HEATING CYCLES TO OVER 3500 DEG F. ADVANCED CARBON/CARBON COMPOSITES (ACC) ARE A LEADING CANDIDATE BUT WILL REQUIRE IMPROVED STRUCTURAL CONCEPTS AND OXIDATION RESISTANT COATINGS. CURRENT 2-D ACC MADE FROM CARBON-PHENOLIC HAVE POOR TRANSVERSE STRENGTH AND THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. 3 ...

  9. NOVEL CARBON-CARBON COMPOSITE WITH IMPROVED STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES AND PROVISIONS FOR ACTIVE LEADING EDGE COOLING

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE OF REUSABLE HYPERSONIC VEHICLES WILL DEPEND ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THERMAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS (TPS) FOR NOSE TIP, WING LEADING EDGE, AND FUSELAGE STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF OPERATION FOR EXTENDED PERIODS IN AN EXTREME AEROHEATING ENVIRONMENT. MINIMUM WEIGHT DESIGN MAY BE ACHIEVED VIA A COMBINATION OF ACTIVE/PASSIVE TPS APPROACHES. THIS WOULD INVOLVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH TEMPER ...
