  1. Field-level Aviation Fuel Contamination Analysis via Integrated Suite of Miniaturized Sensors including Near Infrared (NIR) Spectroscopy

    SBC: OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF191029

    The overall goal of this project is to develop and commercialize a sensor platform which enables near real-time quality assessment of aviation fuels and chemicals. Our solution will lower the cost and cycle-time in fuel analysis and increase the adoption of rigorous fuel analysis techniques, thereby reducing delays and risks in military and civilian air travel. Our Phase I work will demonstrate fe ...
