  1. Ultrasound Assisted Oxidative Desulfurization of JP-8 Fuel

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T017

    The objective of this work is to develop a compact, robust process that reduces the sulfur content of jet fuel to less than 10 ppm prior to its reformation and use in a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) fuel cell. The target power range of the SOFC is 2 kW. In addition to military applications, the desulfurization technology will be compatible for SOFCs used for emergency or backup power generation, ...

  2. Low Cost Integrated Corrosion Health Monitoring System for Utility Pipeline Infrastructure

    SBC: AGINOVA, INC.            Topic: A07T025

    Early detection of corrosion or the advent of corrosive environments in nominally protected assets, and monitoring its extent can help control corrosion initiated failures and predict the degradation or useful remaining life of utility pipeline infrastructure. Although preventive maintenance and periodic visual inspections are utilized to monitor damage and assess costs of corrosion, an autonomous ...

  3. MEMS-Based Optical Beam Steering System for Multi-Color 2D Spot Arrays

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A06T010

    A MEMS based multicolor beam steering system for generating 2D spot arrays has been demonstrated. For effective quantum computation applications, the optical system requires further optimization and refinement. In phase II, parameters such as beam scanning frame rates, insertion loss, system scalability and methods to improve the stability and ruggedness of the optical system will be enhanced towa ...

  4. Emotion Management Orientation and Training Exercises (EMOTE)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: A08T002

    Army leaders face a wide variety of emotionally charged situations. Success in dealing with these situations requires that Army leaders manage their emotions and those of others. Army leaders, however, receive relatively little training in this area. Neither the Army Leadership Field Manual (FM 6-22) nor the Psychology Research literature provides a great deal of guidance regarding the trainable ...

  5. Military Advisors Training System (MATS)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: A08T003

    The United States provides experienced personnel to advise foreign military and security forces. Success in this critical role requires advisors to be more than just competent warriors. Unfortunately, there is a continuing gap between the degree of training, cultural, and interpersonal expertise that advisors need and the training available to prepare them for success. Aptima, Inc. has partnered w ...

  6. Liquid Metal Anodes for a JP-8 Fuel Cell

    SBC: CellTech Power, LLC            Topic: A08T007

    This work will explore the relevant parameter space and continue development of a sulfur-tolerant, direct JP-8 fuel cell using the liquid tin anode SOFC. This work will review potential liquid metal anodes for direct JP-8 applications followed by a characterization of the physical processes involved in power production. A mathematical model will be developed to predict the behavior of the cell, in ...

  7. Automated Microscopic Malaria Diagnosis

    SBC: Diagnostic Vision Corporation            Topic: A08T036

    In this project we will develop a computerized microscope based imaging system for field testing that will allow location and quantization of malarial parasites (trophozoites). The system will automatically scan a blood smear, locating the portions of the smear that are adequate for analysis and then counting the total number of red cells and the number of red cells containing parasites. The sys ...

  8. Segmented Co-Polymer for Alkaline Fuel Cell Membranes

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A07T016

    Alkaline fuel cells (AFCs) have certain advantages over proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) including more rapid electrode kinetics, and the ability to use both non-noble metal catalysts, and lower cost materials of construction. AFC drawbacks include the use of a liquid electrolyte such as concentrated KOH that can introduce problems such as the formation of insoluble carbonates, resulti ...

  9. Robotic Noninvasive Neck and Spinal Injury Assessment Device

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: A08T034

    We propose a robotic non-invasive 3D ultrasound injury assessment system that a) allows local autonomous neck/spine injury assessment using pattern recognition, b) provides capability of telepresence injury assessment operation, c) creates 3D ultrasound imaging and visualization, d) integrates the injury assessment system onto an Hstar combat casualty extraction robotic system called cRoNA (Combat ...

  10. Nostra: Power System Condition Monitoring and Prognostics

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: A07T013

    The NOSTRA system monitors battery health by comparing observed voltage, current, and temperature data to models of both known healthy and known unhealthy battery packs. In Phase I of the NOSTRA program, we demonstrated that this model-based approach can generate accurate estimates of battery age. During Phase II, we will use this approach to estimate battery capacity and internal impedance, the ...
