  1. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  2. Efficient Processing Using New Cell Disruption Method

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: 815

    The proposed effort is aimed at the development of a new low-cost technique for extracting the fuel precursor components from marine alga cells. The effort is aimed at reducing the total production costs of alga-derived fuels, up to one-half of which may be attributed to the recovery/extraction process alone. Development of advanced processing technologies such as that proposed here is n ...

  3. Photoacoustic Sensor for High-sensitivity Measurement of Water Vapor

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: 824

    We propose to build a compact, rugged airborne laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor based on a tunable mid-IR diode laser for continuous, real-time measurements of water vapor, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic airborne in situ monitoring of upper troposphere water vapor. An innovative diode laser frequency locking technique developed by us will be utilized for tuna ...

  4. Phase-Stabilized 1-GHz Fiber-Laser Frequency Combs at 2~5um for Coherent Fourier Transform Spectroscopy

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GHz-rate phase-stabilized fiber-laser frequency comb system is proposed to be used as a light source for coherent Fourier transform spectroscopy. The system will be developed based on our proprietary glass/fiber technology, which features a low-cost, robust, highly stable, mid-infrared light source that enables the development of a robust portable c-FTIR spectrometer for absorption measurement ...

  5. High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08154

    Active Signal Technologies, in collaboration with Novacap, Alfred University and Lockheed Martin, proposes to further develop its high-temperature capacitor technology and deliver multiple 700-V modules to the Army. The modules will be populated with 1-µF capacitors based on a newly-developed sodium bismuth titanate (NBT) dielectric with outstanding electrical performance to 200°C and beyond. ...

  6. Innovative Eye-Safe Wavelength High Power Fiber Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: A10028

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in the last several years. Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power at 1 micron from one single mode fiber has been demonstrated. Department of Defense (DoD) needs 100s of kW for missile defense as well as for protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). There is serious concern about current 1 micron fiber laser system potentia ...

  7. Advanced Articulated Soldier Knee and Elbow Protection System

    SBC: ArmorWorks, Inc.            Topic: A08197

    There is an acute need for lightweight, articulating elbow and knee ballistic systems that provide protection against NIJ Level II threat projectiles. The goal of this SBIR Phase II program is to continue development and optimization of an innovative lightweight, articulating elbow and knee protection system that is capable of meeting current Level II protection requirements. The design success w ...

  8. Heat Actuated Cooling System

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: A09090

    A cooling system that converts waste heat from power supply units into useful space cooling is sought by the U.S. Army to reduce the electrical loads and fuel consumption in mobile military platforms. Unfortunately, conventional heat actuated systems are too large and inefficient. ThermAvant Technologies has developed a thermally-driven cooling system that combines environmentally benign fluids wi ...

  9. LADAR Light Reflection Analysis for Target Surface Characterization

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: A10AT006

    This Phase I STTR effort develops and tests spectropolarimetric surface characterization algorithms for LADAR based remote sensing. A systematic approach is used which first defines the operational scenarios for which the algorithms are to work. These scenarios are then used to define requirements for LADAR hardware and algorithms which serves to focus the algorithm development effort. A librar ...

  10. Development Of Scanning Photoacoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) Using A Novel Optical/Laser Microphone For The Remote Detection Of Explosives

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: A09038

    We propose to develop a scanning photoacoustic spectroscopic (PAS) system fitted with a novel laser microphone for the remote scanning of targeted molecules and chemical compounds. By leveraging the acoustic signatures emitted by the target molecules, the proposed PAS technology offers better detection sensitivity in identifying the presence and concentrations of targeted molecules compared to con ...
