SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY Topic: N/A
THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...SBIR Phase I 1991 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: ERNEST MEADOWS INDUSTRIAL DESIGN Topic: N/A
BIPOLAR BATTERIES CAN, IN PRINCIPLE, YIELD ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE HIGHER SPECIFIC POWER THAN CONVENTIONAL, PARALLEL PLATE BATTERIES. SUCH BATTERIES BEGIN TO HAVE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS SIMILAR TO CAPACITORS AND COULD POSSIBLY BE USED TO REPLACE CAPACITOR FOR SOME APPLICATIONS. BATTERY PERFORMANCE OF BETWEEN 5 AND 2 A/CM2 AT 1.0 V CELL POTENTIAL FOR A TIME PERIOD OF 500 MICROSECONDS WITH ELECTROD ...SBIR Phase II 1990 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
