  1. Biomimetic Membranes for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    The proposed research effort is focused on developing a highly conducting, nanostructured membrane for use in high temperature direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC). Polymer nanofiber mats with high temperature stability and water retaining inorganic nanoparticles will be prepared through electrospinning process. The nanofiber mats will be compacted and the pores will be infiltrated using a hydrophobi ...

  2. Malware Understanding using Dependence Graphs, Clustering, and Mining.

    SBC: NOVASHIELD, Inc.            Topic: A11aT020

    The number of distinct malware being released into the wild is growing at an alarming rate. Some IT security companies are seeing more than 5,000 new malware instances each day. IT security companies can no longer keep pace with this deluge using manual, labor-intensive malware analysis techniques for generating specifications that detect them. There is a need for proven and deployable automate ...

  3. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    Active defects negatively impact the performance of IRFPAs by increasing noise at various levels up to, and including, catastrophic degradation. Evidence indicates that"killer defects"are related to the interaction of open core screw dislocations with impurities that remain after substrate preparation, prior to HgCdTe growth. This impurity diffusion creates a conducting channel that shorts the j ...

  4. High Operability HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays on Si by Mitigation of Defects

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    For HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays fabricated on Si substrates, a model has recently been proposed to account for the disparity between the density of failed pixels and the density of dislocations that are present in the HgCdTe junction region. The model distinguishes between active and inactive dislocations and offers a hypothesis that dislocations are active only when they intersect particul ...

  5. Defect Reduction at the Silicon (112) Wafer Surface by Amorphization and Recrystallization

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    Silicon wafers oriented on (112) are the preferred substrates for deposition of mercury cadmium telluride layers by molecular beam epitaxy. Surface defects introduced during polishing of the wafers degrade the quality of the epitaxy and the performance of infrared detectors fabricated within these materials. We propose a process for reducing the density of the defects that are inherent in the si ...

  6. Renewable Fuel Production System (RFPS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10BT047

    Orbital Technologies Corporation (ORBITEC) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) propose to develop the Renewable Fuel Production System (RFPS), a system which will produce liquid alkene-based transportation fuels from lignocellulosic biomass. Specifically, we propose to investigate the production of levulinic acid (LA) and/or gamma-valerolactone (GVL) from lignocellulose; both of t ...

  7. Innovative Methods for the Conversion of Biomass to Short Chain Alkenes for the Production of Renewable Jet Fuels

    SBC: C5-6 TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N10BT047

    C5-6 Technologies and University of Wisconsin Stevens Point scientists will develop a bacterial strain that economically ferments sugars into isoprene, a platform chemical that will play a central role in the future bio-economy. UWSP scientists have genetically engineered E. coli to produce isoprene, a precursor of B-pinene and other fuels, via a novel pathway that has significant potential produc ...

  8. Monolithic Scalable Mid-Infrared Phase-Locked Laser Array

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N11AT011

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.8-4.2 micron-emitting, active-photonic-crystal (APC) quantum-cascade (QC) lasers by using passive phase-locking in a monolithic structure in order to achieve multiwatt-range, diffraction-limited powers; and 2) the development of the key crystal- growth processes for realizing the proposed APC QC laser: the growth and characterizatio ...

  9. Underwater Sensor System Autonomous Burial and Operation

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N11AT017

    In coordination with the SPAWAR Systems Center, San Diego, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. proposes to develop an autonomous Array Burial Vehicle (ABV) to install U.S. surveillance arrays. The proposed work focuses on: (a) developing an overall vehicle concept for an autonomous vehicle that will install and bury an underwater sensor array to protect it against fishing threats, (b) performing analyti ...

  10. Multi-Sensor Data Collection Suite for Unobtrusive Human Performance Measurement

    SBC: Archinoetics, LLC            Topic: N11AT033

    In this proposal, the team of Archinoetics and UCI define a program of research and development to develop a data collection and analysis system for human performance measurement that is (1) inexpensive, (2) modular, (3) easily extensible, and (4) that facilitates easy data analysis. Furthermore, in creating such a system, we will be leveraging know-how, lessons learned, as well as some technical ...
