  1. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...

  2. Low-cost, Time-resolved Chemical Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    The composition of atmospheric particulate matter (“aerosols”) strongly influences health and environmental impacts, but there exist few time-resolved, long-term records of particle-phase chemical composition due to lack of appropriate monitoring tools. Needed is an instrument that is robust, easy-to-operate, with automated calibrations and data reduction, to provide operationally-inexpensive ...

  3. Development of Military Tactical Eyewear with an Active Anti-fogging System

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM18003

    The military combat eye protection (MCEP) program is designed to protect our soldiers' eyes from the external threats of fragmentation, electromagnetic radiation, wind, dust, sand, etc. and greatly improve both safety and operational effectiveness. However, the goggles and spectacles on the Militarys authorized protective eyewear list (APEL) are only effective if the soldier is wearing them. Foggi ...

  4. High-temperature superconducting cables for compact fusion reactors

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 19c

    The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors that allow for more compact magnet systems with higher performance and much larger temperature margins. The compact, ...

  5. Surface Modification of Cellulose Nanomaterial for use in Hydrophobic Matrix Materials

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    Cellulose nanofibrils represent a natural, sustainable source of nanofibers that can be used as reinforcing additives. Unfortunately, the hydrophilic surface properties of the cellulose nanofibrils make it difficult for them to be incorporated into hydrophobic polymer matrices of common manufacturing plastics to form fiber reinforced composites. TDA is developing technology that can be used to mod ...

  6. Advanced Simulations of Helicon Antennae and Sources

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 20b

    A recent experiment at the DIII-D tokamak has pioneered an innovative and potentially critical actuator for burning plasmas: helicon wave current drive. Steady-state profile maintenance in future burning plasma experiments will require efficient and economically viable sources of off-axis current drive. Promising indications that helicon current drive can fill this need led to the establishment of ...

  7. Efficient 2-Micron Laser Driver for Laser Acceleration

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 28a

    Laser plasma accelerators (LPA) enabled by the Tm laser driver to be developed by this project offer much reduced size and cost compared to conventional accelerators of the same energy. This would drastically cut the cost of highenergy particle research on collider-based facilities and advanced light sources. Planned conventional accelerators (e.g., for the proposed International Linear Collider) ...

  8. Particle In Cell Simulation of Nanotube Growth

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 22b

    Nano materials have a wide range of applications, ranging from drug delivery in medical applications to new composite materials in aerospace applications. Experimental data on nanoparticle growth exists, but numerical simulations are needed to understand the underlying physical mechanisms and to enable better prediction of nanomaterial production. The numerical models of plasma assisted production ...

  9. Emergency Hydrogen Refueler for Individual Consumer Fuel Cell Vehicles

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 11c

    The Department of Energy is soliciting an emergency hydrogen refueler for an individual consumer fuel cell vehicle. With sparse hydrogen filling stations at present, operators of fuel cell powered vehicles can experience range anxiety lessening the appeal of these vehicles. Skyhaven Systems, LLC is developing an emergency hydrogen refueler that can be stored in the vehicle trunk and used by the co ...

  10. E-Blockchain: A Scalable Platform for Secure Energy Transactions and Control

    SBC: Grid7 LLC            Topic: 17a

    The Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly and is creating the need for a more decentralized and secure way to integrate (IoT) devices into Smartgrid and power plant control system infrastructure. With an estimated 212 Billion sensor-enabled IoT devices to be deployed by 20201, these internet-connected devices will need to be managed differently than the current centralized approac ...
