  2. A Portable, Modular Process for Sulfur Removal and Disposal in Naval Fuel Cell System

    SBC: Cal Nova Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The petroleum refining industry tends to utilize large sulfur removal units, which are permanently installed and unable to meet the demands of a versatile industry. Cal Nova Tech has developed a sulfur-removal concept that utilizes portable, modularcomponents that can be quickly assembled in a variety of ways. These units are especially effective in confined areas, such as those found onboard Na ...

  7. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...
