  1. STTR Phase I: Novel Bioprocess for Natural Gas Conversion

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercialization potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to produce an important platform chemical, hexanoic acid. Currently, the 6-carbon compounds are difficult to attain since crude petroleum contains just a small fraction in this carbon range as part of light naphtha. Most of the 6-carbon compounds are produced via multiple steps that ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Development of a Freefall Precipitation Camera for Weather Monitoring Systems

    SBC: Fallgatter Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop a new Present Weather Sensor (PWS). The impact of this project will be felt in the transportation sector where, annually, 1.4 million traffic accidents are caused by weather at an estimated cost to the nation of $42 billion. Knowing whether freezing rain or snow is present greatly influences how Departments of Transportation appr ...

  3. Wind Turbine Clutter Mitigation

    SBC: Matrix Research, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: Matrix and CSU are poised to develop algorithms to suppress radar WTC while preserving signals from targets of interest such as aircraft and weather. Our processing approach will be capable of utilizing radar data from either stationary- or scanning-mode ground-based systems. We will work closely with our transition partner to develop a Phase II transition plan to integrate our approac ...

  10. Advanced Optical Diagnostics/Modeling Platform for Plasma Assisted Combustion in Vitiated Air

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: Modern gas-turbine engines designs for the next-generation warfighter need to reduce exhaust gas temperatures to reduce effective thermal footprint thereby improving the mission capability. In such situations, high-altitude engine operation is often limited by the overall combustion efficiency, lean flame blow out (LBO) limit, and combustion instabilities that results in narrower opera ...
