  1. Using Electrical Resistivity Techniques to Monitor the Long-Term Health of Sub-Surface Reactive Barriers

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    72571B03-I Reactive subsurface barriers for groundwater remediation require systems to ensure that the barrier is continuous along its length (without any breaks or holes) and that it continues to remediate the groundwater passing through the barrier. Electrical resistivity measurements made within the barrier wall offer the potential to reliably address these needs in a low-cost manner. This ...

  2. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  3. Straight Vegetable Oil Modification for Combustion

    SBC: LEONARDO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A08T030

    Current bio-based fuels represent an alternative energy option due to their high energy content, and availability of sources. Biodiesel and straight vegetable oils (SVO) can be used as fuels in a myriad of applications. However, conversion of SVO to biodiesel requires additional resources including water, catalysts, and energy. Direct use of SVO in diesel engine is not entirely feasible without ...

  4. Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A07T040

    From anecdotal reports of the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today for United States soldiers engaged in armed combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medics have historically ...

  5. Efficient Frequency Conversion and Optical Amplification to Improve Detection of Chemical and Biological Agents

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: N/A

    There is a need to improve the sensitivity of chemical and biological sensing LIDAR systems so that standoff distances can be increased. LIDAR sensing systems have to cover ranges of 50 m to 20 km. However, their sensitivity is limited by the need tokeep the laser transmitter power below the eye-safe limit. We propose to use Periodically-Poled Stoichiometric Lithium Niobate (PPLN) for improved ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Engineering Clostritrial Fermentation for Biobutanol Production


    Intellectual Merit: This STTR project will develop novel engineered Clostridia strains for fermentation to economically produce butanol as a biofuel from sugars derived from starchy and lignocellulosic biomass. Butanol is an important industrial solvent and potentially a better transportation fuel than ethanol. Recent rising oil prices and limited petroleum resources have generated high interest i ...

  7. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays


    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...

  8. STTR PHASE I: Simple Desulfurizing Component Enables Fuel Processing of Sulfur-laden Logistic Fuels for Fuel Cells

    SBC: CATACEL CORP            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will investigate the technical and commercial feasibility of coating metal foils with a solid sorbent so that they act as a desulfurizing component for pre-treatment of sulfur-laden liquid fuels. The coated foils will be inserted into a small heat exchanger that acts as a platform unit for conversion of liquid fuels to hydrogen for fue ...

  9. STTR Phase I: A Simple and Innovative Approach to the Synthesis of Metal, Alloy, Metal Oxide, and Mixed-Metal Oxide Nanoparticles

    SBC: Cosmas, Inc.            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project addresses the scale-up to kilogram quantities of a novel university laboratory solid-state method of synthesizing metal oxide and metal nanoparticles by mixing common chemical starting materials and baking the resulting precursor material at modest temperatures; and the dispersment of the loosely agglomerated particles for comm ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Low-Cost Manufacturing of Fuel Cell MEAs with Highly Dispersed Catalyst

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to develop the instrumentation and processes to fabricate ex-novo large numbers of user-specified oligonucleotides in hours, using a proprietary tabletop production system. Oligomers will be synthesized in parallel on a glass slide using light-directed phosphoramidite chemistry with computer-controlled imaging, and then selectively ...
