  1. Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator PV System

    SBC: Glint Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001256

    Concentrator PV systems using highly efficient multijunction photovoltaic cells hold out the promise of very low-cost solar electricity generation, but their adoption has been hamstrung by the requirement for bulky mechanical trackers that add cost, diminish land use, increase maintenance, and exclude roof-top installations. The Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator (SWAC) PV system will provides the ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH EFFICIENCY, SMALL SCALE HEAT ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES FOR POINT OF USE ELECTRICITY GENERATION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Sencera Energy Inc            Topic: DEFOA0001380

    The goal of the GENSETS program is to realize an affordable generator-engine system with 1 kW of electrical output, fuel energy content to electricity conversion efficiency exceeding 40%, long life, and low emissions. A system can be broken into 5 primary subsystems: (1) a chemical combiner or burner, (2) an engine, (3) an alternator, (4) a heat rejector, and (5) a controller. This work focuses on ...

  3. Nonlinear Laser Wave Mixing for Trace Detection of Explosives

    SBC: Audentia, Inc.            Topic: 15OATS001

    To overcome current problems, Audentia, Inc., proposes to enhance, develop and demonstrate nonlinear laser wave-mixing detectors that offer standoff detection of explosives in their native form at ambient temperature and pressure using compact rugged laser-based designs. Taking advantage of high spectral resolution available from tunable solid-state lasers (without monochromators), our prototype i ...

  4. A Real-Time Application Security Analyzer

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: 15OATS002

    Software developers are faced with a variety of security challenges when developing and deploying new systems. The software may be subject to malicious insiders, external threats and supply chain threats that access systems through poor software hygiene or the presence of zero-day vulnerabilities that the vendor is not aware of. While an array of software assurance tools have been developed that ...

  5. Advanced sodium batteries with enhanced safety and low cost processing

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000674

    The sodium battery using beta-alumina solid electrolyte is one of the most promising grid-scale electrical energy storage technologies that can balance the short-duration variability in renewable generation. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and high capital investment for installation. The safety i ...

  6. Autonomous Detection and Healing of Silent Vulnerabilities

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: HSB0142002

    BlueRISC's proposed solution provides a fundamentally new approach to enable autonomous detection of exploitation attempts as well as healing of silent vulnerabilities. It follows a hybrid approach consisting of (i) new static silent vulnerability point and associated path pre-characterization concepts, and (ii) the insertion of minimal and low-overhead runtime support enabled by the vulnerability ...

  7. Ultra-Small, Low-Cost Hazardous Gas and Particulate Matter Detector Using Novel Chip-Scale Chemical Sensor Technology

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142006

    The proposed SBIR Phase II project will demonstrate a wearable, low-power, low-cost detector module capable of detecting 13 toxic and hazardous gases and particulate matter (PM) in air suitable for use by first-responders and fire-inspectors during active knock-down and overhaul phases of fire operation. Standard four-gas detectors are grossly inadequate not only in terms of the limited informatio ...

  8. Rapid Low-Cost Biological Warefare Decontamination

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB0142001

    Lynntech, Inc. proposes the use of a novel oxidant as a powdered concentrate, that when dissolved in water, yields a potent sporicidal solution capable of reducing spores by greater than 6-logs on a variety of surfaces. The sporicidal formulation will be tested on concrete, wood, galvanized metal, glass, plastic and painted wallboard to determine if the formulation will reduce spores but not harm ...

  9. Downed Power Line Sensor

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: HSB0142005

    The proposed SkySight Technologies Downed Power Line Sensor will detect and alert to the presence of a downed power line and its energized status through a sensor on the power line. In the event of a downed power line, an alert message is sent via wireless network to the utility provider regarding the lines energized status. A concurrent visual onsite indicator flashes to alert first responders an ...

  10. A Handheld Multi-Gas Sensor Based on Selective Gas Adsorption on Mass Transducers

    SBC: Matrix Sensors, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142006

    We propose to develop a portable, rugged, handheld multi-gas sensor that is well within the solicitation requirements. We will leverage a mature class of mass sensors that include capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs). These sensors boast extraordinary sensitivity to changes in mass (e.g. 50 femtograms) and are used today in several applications including high resolution ultrason ...
