  1. Efficient Extraction of Oil from Microalgae

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 815

    Microalgae are a promising feedstock for biofuels because of their high oil content, excellent CO2 capture, and ability to use brackish water and non-arable land. The extraction of oil from algae represents a challenging cost barrier to commercial biofuel production. Conventional technologies for algal oil extraction are energy-inefficient, cost-intensive, or non scalable, leading to bar ...

  3. Development of MicroFluidic Palette for Cellular Responses to Chemical Stimuli

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Current research tools to understand tumor cell migration and metastases are limited to linear gradients or constant flow across cells skewing results. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed a tool called the microfluidic palette which exposes cells to chemical stimuli in a static environment overcoming the limitations above. Several improvements are necessary ...

  4. Sensor Systems for Complete Residential Energy Monitoring

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase 1, TIAX developed and demonstrated a residential energy monitoring system (R-EMS) with potential national energy savings of $20 billion annually. Based on user requirements and well-established systems engineering methodology, TIAX’s R-EMS solution is inexpensive, easy to install and operate, and is supportive of intuitive decision making about energy usage. In Phase 2, TIAX will ex ...

  5. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: Benz Oil Company            Topic: DLA09001

    The majority of manufactured parts for defense system applications are machined using a lubricating cutting fluid. Field data has shown that cutting fluids not only impact tool life and piece geometry of manufactured parts, but can alter the power used by machine tools by 15% to 30%. Cutting fluid chemistry can be optimized by careful study

  6. Programmable Fingerprint Emulator

    SBC: PHT AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the development of a technology apparatus which can dynamically synthesize a mechanical fingerprint pattern, from an electronic image or from a computer-generated artificial pattern, onto a 2-dimensional pliable surface whose surface height is modulated by protrusions in the z-axis direction. When mechanically applied to a fingerprint sensor-under-test, the synthesized modulat ...
