  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. 300 mm High Density Temperature Probe Card for Wafer- Level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Already researchers are unable to package the many advanced devices because the act of cutting the wafer and the packaging operation pre-stresses or destroys the devices resulting in unreliable test results. Additionally the increasing cost of fabricating a wafer with advanced integrated circuit techno ...

  5. Development of a Coastal Long-Term Automated Self-Calibrating Profiler

    SBC: Green Eyes, LLC            Topic: 814

    Green Eyes, LLC will demonstrate the feasibility of a Coastal Long-term Automated Self-calibration Profiler (CLASP) system capable of operating autonomously for one year without servicing. CLASP will be configured to incorporate wireless two-way communications for automated data dissemination and remote control. Two major innovations are required to develop such a system. 1. Automated bio-fouli ...

  6. ALERT-2 Protocol Development

    SBC: SALO IT SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 8310

    Salo IT Solutions, Inc. (SaloITS) will design and implement the ALERT-2 protocol, a next-generation suite of network protocols that will provide enhanced services for Automated Flood Warning Systems (AFWSs). The focus of this Phase I project is to create and develop a consensus within the ALERT community in support of an ALERT-2 Requirements Specification document and an ALERT-2 Protocol Specific ...
