  1. Novel Carbon Foam Electrodes for Electrochemical Oxidation and Capacitive Deionization

    SBC: VESITECH INC            Topic: N08113

    The novel staged electrochemical oxidation/ capacitive deionization (EO/CDI) treatment system proposed here is based upon a multi-stage treatment approach using: (1) physical filtration to remove macroscopic solid particles, followed by (2) capacitive deionization (CDI) with a novel activated mesocarbon foam, (3) a unique flow-through electrochemical oxidation cell which both promotes direct oxida ...

  2. Radio Frequency (RF) Modeling of Layered Composite Dielectric Building Materials

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N08075

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a software tool for electromagnetic modeling of layered composite dielectric building materials as well as algorithms which would enable imaging through such structures by mitigating their image distorting properties. A Hybrid techniques is proposed for the calculation of the transmissivity matrix of complex, inhomogeneous, layered walls with arbitr ...

  4. High Power Pump Couplers for High Energy Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Arbor Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N091015

    Realization of fiber lasers with output power in the multi-kW range critically depends on the development of high power fiber components. This proposal specifically addresses the design, development and manufacture of new, all-fiber pump couplers using large-core, single-mode Chirally-Coupled Core (CCC) fiber, capable of operating at pump powers as high as 2kW or more. To improve the performance o ...

  6. Development of a Miniature, Vibro-Mechanical Energy Harvester for Powering Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    A major barrier to the widespread adoption of wireless sensors for structural health monitoring is the requirement to power the network of wireless nodes. Batteries have a limited lifespan, adding significant size, weight, and costs to the wireless sensor network,and may represent a long term environmental problem. Battery maintenance can be eliminated by harvesting energy from the environment. Fo ...

  7. Control Surface Buffet Load Measurement

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N091013

    Structural monitoring of Navy aircraft is of critical importance as the fleet ages. One critical area includes the control surfaces, which are subject to intense, dynamic buffet loading which can lead to structural cracking. The highly transient nature of buffet loading makes it difficult to measure using conventional sensors. We propose to solve this problem by combining a network of time-synchro ...

  8. Fieldable Probe for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: Proto Manufacturing Inc            Topic: N09T022

    Current methodology for testing the degree of sensitization (DoS) in 5XXX aluminum alloys is destructive and not practical for inspecting boats and material in service. A nondestructive inspection (NDI) method is required as a single fieldable probe for this and associated requirements. Proto evaluated a combination of x-ray diffraction (XRD), ultra-sonics and eddy current technologies and conclud ...

  9. Data Fusion of Electric Field and Acoustic Data

    SBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N091019

    Conventional acoustic ASW methods are limited in littoral regions, where multipath caused by widely varying sound speed profiles and cluttered boundary conditions is concurrent with high ambient noise. For this reason additional detection methods are desirable. Many potential targets of interest generate incidental electric fields from the galvanic potential field generated by dissimilar metals in ...

  10. Automated, Rapid Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI) of Large Scale Composite Structures

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: N092097

    Composite aircraft structures present significant inspection challenges to most NDI methods. Most widely used NDI modalities, e.g. visual inspection and coin tap, have little or no relevance to composite aircraft. These are typically qualitative techniques that are difficult to replicate, and depend on subjective interpretation by the inspector. Visual inspection, which is still widely used for me ...
