  1. SHALLOW WATER SONAR SYSTEM

    SBC: Ocean Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPECIAL MILITARY NARROW BEAM ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS AND TRANSMISSION TECHNIQUES CAN BE EASILY ADAPTED FOR COMMERCIAL USE TO ENABLE FISHERMEN OR RESEARCHERS TO DETECT,LOCATE, AND QUANTIFY BIOLOGICAL TARGETS WITH VERY HIGH ACCURACY IN SHALLOW WATER. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PROVIDE A METHOD FOR PRODUCING VERY NARROW ACOUSTIC BEAMS WITH VIRTUALLY NO SIDELOBES FROM A SMALL APERTURE PROJECTOR ARRAY. ALSO ...

  2. REMOVAL OF SULFUR OXIDES AND NITROGEN OXIDES FROM FLUE GAS BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING REDUCED ZIRCONIA

    SBC: Advanced Ceramic Research            Topic: N/A

    EMISSION OF SULFUR OXIDES (SOX) AND NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) IN FLUE GASES IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF AIR POLLUTION AND ACID RAIN. CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES FOR SOX REMOVAL ARE EXPENSIVE AND CUMBERSOME. SULFUR DIOXIDE IS CONVERTED TO SULFURIC ACID, WHICH IS VERY CORROSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO STORE AND TRANSPORT. REMOVAL OF NOX IS ACCOMPLISHED BY CATALYTIC CONVERSION USING PLATINUM CATALYSTS. PLATINUM CATALYSTS ARE ...

  3. AFFINITY COUPLING OF RECEPTORS ON MICROCHIPS

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    REAGENTS AND REACTION PROCEDURES WILL BE DEVELOPED DURING PHASE I FOR THE COUPLING OF ANTIBODY MOLECULES TO THE ACTIVATED SURFACE OF MICROCHIP CAPACITANCE SENSORS. PROPRIETARY PHOTOAFFINITY REAGENTS WILL BE SYNTHESIZED AND COUPLED TO THE ELECTRODE SURFACE FOR SPECIFIC COVALENT BINDING OF MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY (USING ONE OF THE TWO ANTIBODY BINDING SITES). THIS WILL LEAVE THE REMAINING STABILIZED ANT ...

  4. AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF TREATING SPENT ORGANIC RESINS CONTAINING RADIONUCLEAR WASTE

    SBC: ChemChar Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A PROCESS FOR TREATING SPENT ORGANIC RESINS CONTAINING RADIONUCLEAR WASTE. SINCE RESINS ARE HYDROPHILIC, THEY COMPETE WITH CEMENT FOR WATER DURING THE CURING PROCESS. ALSO, THE RESINSHRINKS AND SWELLS BECAUSE OF REABSORPTION OF WATER; THIS RESULTS IN DEFORMATION AND CRACKING OF THE CEMENT/RESIN SOLID. THE PRESENT METHOD WILL ELIMINATE THE ORGANIC COMPONENT ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF THE AERATED FLOW COMBUSTOR FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY, CLEAN COMBUSTION OF COAL

    SBC: Combustion Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE AERATED FLOW COMBUSTOR (AFC) IS A NEW, ADVANCED CONCEPT OF COMBUSTOR DESIGN, APPLICABLE TO THE HIGH EFFICIENCY, CLEAN, DIRECT COMBUSTION OF COAL, COAL SLURRIES, MOST SOLID AND LIQUID FUELS, AND HAZARDOUS WASTES. AFC IS BASED UPON AN ADVANCED, INTEGRATED, INTERDISCIPLINARY COMBINATION OF TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING FLUIDIZED BED COMBUSTION, AERATED FLOW OF SOLIDS, AND CIRCULATION-LOOP GAS-SOLIDS CA ...

  6. A NOVEL ABSORPTION-COGENERATION CYCLE

    SBC: ENERGY CONCEPTS CO., LLC            Topic: N/A

    TYPICALLY, A COGENERATION SYSTEM DESIGNER MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN A RECIPROCATING ENGINE, WHICH YIELDS EXCELLENT ELECTRICAL EFFICIENCY BUT LOW USEFUL THERMAL OUTPUT OR A GASTURBINE, WHICH YIELDS A LARGE THERMAL OUTPUT BUT LESS ELECTRICITY. THE PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT, WHEN APPLIED TO A RECIPROCATING ENGINE COGENERATION SYSTEM, INCREASES THE USEFUL THERMAL OUTPUT BY ABOUT 50% WITHOUT DECREASING THE ELECTR ...

  7. BRAZING OF GRAPHITE AND CARBON COMPOSITES USING THIN FILM METALLIZATION

    SBC: Hittman Materials And            Topic: N/A

    BRAZING GRAPHITE TO GRAPHITE OR TO OTHER MATERIALS IS DIFFICULT SINCE GRAPHITE IS NOT READILY WET BY MOST CONVENTIONAL BRAZE FILLER METALS. BECAUSE THE BONDING MECHANISM DEPENDS ON CARBIDE FORMATION, THE FILLER METALS USED FOR JOINING GRAPHITE TO GRAPHITE OR OTHER METALS MUST CONTAIN AN ELEMENT THAT HAS A STRONG TENDENCY TO FORM CARBIDES WITH THE GRAPHITE. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES BRAZING GRAPHITE AN ...

  8. A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF SPECIFICATIO-GRADE ASPHALT FROM UTAH TAR SANDS

    SBC: James W. Bunger And Associates            Topic: N/A

    UTAH CONTAINS SIGNIFICANT RESOURCES OF TAR SANDS WHICH, IF DEVELOPED, COULD BECOME AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF THE NATION'S REQUIREMENTS FOR PETROLEUM PRODUCTS. THE ECONOMICSFOR PRODUCTION OF SYNCRUDE FROM UTAH TAR SANDS HAVE HISTORICALLY BEEN JUST BEYOND THE RANGE OF PROFITABILITY. PRODUCTION OF ASPHALT, HOWEVER, APPEARS TO BE PROFITABLE TODAY. CAPITAL AND OPERATING COSTS FOR PRODUCTION OF ASPHALT ...

  9. INSTRUMENTATION FOR AUTOMATED COLONY PROCESSING

    SBC: LARGE SCALE BIOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  10. AN ADVANCED SENSOR FOR MONITORING SLAGGING AND FOULING IN BLACK LIQUOR BOILERS

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    BLACK LIQUOR RECOVERY BOILERS EMPLOY BLACK LIQUOR AS A PRIMARY FUEL THAT CONTAINS LARGE AMOUNTS OF SODIUM CARBONATE, SODIUM SULFIDE, AND SMALL AMOUNTS OF SODIUM SULFATE. THE FUEL, AS INTRODUCED IN THE BOILER, CONTAINS APPROXIMATELY ONE-THIRD WATER, ONE-THIRD CHEMICALS, AND ONLYONE-THIRD COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS. THE BLACK LIQUOR RECOVERY BOILER IS AN ESSENTIAL STEP OF THE KRAFT PULPING PROCESS FOR PR ...
