  1. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train. The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature from these ...

  2. Highly Flexible and Extremely Durable Polyimide Cryogenic Insulation

    SBC: GFT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovative insulation would greatly enhance the usability of, and reduce the inherent losses associated with, cryogenic fuel delivery and storage apparatus. The proposed insulation has been tested to yield a thermal conductivity value of 0.019w/mK @ one inch format @ an areal density

  3. Sensitivity-Based Simulation Software for Optimization of Turbine Blade Cooling Strategies

    SBC: Jabiru Software and Services            Topic: A210

    In recent years, there has been a tendency to use ever-higher gas turbine inlet temperatures, resulting in ever-higher heat loads necessitating efficient cooling. Internal cooling designs have evolved from the use of simple curved ducts in early designs to very complex geometries. Similar complexities govern film cooling as well, leading to complex fluid-structure interactions and turbulence physi ...

  4. Efficient, Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: A206

    Focusing on a reduced-dimension problem of a hypersonic orbital/lunar reentry capsule, an algorithm will be built which combines the stochastic Monte Carlo method for treatment of radiation transport in optically thin to moderate domains, with a single-term modified differential approximation (MP1) for use in optically thick domains. This numerical method will be verified against a known benchmar ...

  5. Microfluidic Multichannel Flow Cytometer

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a "Microfluidic Multichannel Flow Cytometer." Several novel concepts are integrated to produce the final design, which is compatible with on-orbit operation from the standpoint of gravity-independence, low mass, low power requirement and automated operation. The unique design features of the Microfluidic Multichannel Flow Cytometer include compact optics based on diode ...

  6. Application of Zeeko's Novel Random Tool Path for Improvement of Surface PSD

    SBC: Zeeko Technologies, LLC            Topic: S205

    A well known problem in the fabrication of aspheric optical surfaces lies in surface irregularities inherent in the figuring process. Low-spatial frequency errors (figure errors) cause distortion in the system wavefront, resulting in degradation of the point spread function. Mid-spatial frequency errors cause small-angle scattering of light (flare), which reduces image contrast. High-spatial fr ...

  7. Creating a Global Infrastructure for Virtual Aids to Navigation (V-ATON)

    SBC: WisdomTools Enterprises Inc            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Today's dense and rapidly evolving threat environments have increased the requirements that are being placed on tools necessary for characterizing urban electromagnetic (EM) environments. Although effective tools for urban EM environment characterization exist for simple 2-D models, the more challenging problem of characterizing the EM environment of a large densely populated region ...
