  1. ADAPT-MP: Auto-Diagnostic Adaptive Precision Trainer for Myoelectric Prosthesis users

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: DHP14011

    More than 1,500 Americans have lost a limb due to traumatic injury in combat in recent years.Upper limb loss can be treated with myoelectric prostheses, but such devices require intensive training to effectively operate. The need to concentrate and continuously react during training often takes amputees many months, with the result that many patients abandon use of the prosthesis. In the Phase I e ...

  2. Low-Cost Phase-Distribution Enhancement for Two-Phase Heat Exchangers


    Military Environmental Control Units (ECUs) are one of the greatest consumers of electric energy in forward operating bases (FOBs). Microchannel condensers have replaced tube-fin coils in both military ECUs and commercial air conditioners to improve system efficiency. Flow into the condenser is single-phase superheated vapor and therefore uniform flow distribution through multiple parallel microch ...

  3. Development of a Safer Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Battery for Naval Aircraft Applications Through Thermal Management Design

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N14AT006

    Rechargeable lithium ion battery systems can provide power throughout the aircraft, including engine or Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) starting, avionics, emergency, and other systems. Because of their high specific energy/power and potential thermal instability, they can present hazards if improperly designed, tested, handled, or stored. To address the thermal safety issue of Li-ion batteries, EIC La ...

  5. Hot Surface Ignition Apparatus for Aviation Fuels

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF141222

    ABSTRACT: ASTM standards exist currently to characterize various combustion characteristics of flammable chemicals such as flammability limits, flash point, minimum ignition energy, and auto ignition temperature. There are no such well-accepted characterization protocols for hot surface ignition temperature measurements. This is partly due to a large variation in the (i) test setups used in the li ...
