  1. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AT THE PPB LEVEL FROM CULINARY WATER USING A NOVEL MACROCYCLE-SILICA GEL DEVICE

    SBC: IBC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO HAVE A MTHOD FOR EFFICIENT, COST EFFEC- TIVE, AND SIMULTANEOUS REMOVAL OF PB(II), AG(I), CD(II) AND HG(II) FROM POTABLE WATER TO LEVELS WELL BELOW THEIR EPA LIMITS. SUCH A METHOD COULD BE USED BY BOTH MUNICIPAL WATER WASTE TREATMENT PLALNTS. THE INTERACTION OF THE MACROCYCLE TETRAAZA-18CROWN WITH THE METALS OF INTEREST IS OF SUFFI- CIENT STRENGTH AND SELECTIVITY TO REMOVE THE ME ...

  2. MATERIALS FOR SELECTIVE ABSORPTION OF CARBON MONOXIDE

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CARBON MONOXIDE IS A COLORLESS, ODORLESS, POISONOUS GAS PRO-DUCED BY THE INCOMPLETE COMBUSITON OF HYDROCARBON FUELS. IT IS A SIGNIFICANT OUTDOOR AND INDOOR AIR POLLUTANT. AUTOMO ARE THE MJOR SOURCE OF OUTDOOR CARBON MONOXIDE, AND IT IS EMITTED AT THE HIGHEST RATE DURING THE FIRST FEW MINUTES WHEN THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS NOT ACTIVE. MAJOR SOURCES OF INDOOR POLLUTION ARE APPLIANCES AND CIGARETTES ...

  3. META COMPILER FOR VERY HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE IN BATTLE MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Space Tech Corp            Topic: N/A

    ANY VERY HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE (VHLL) FOR STRATEGIC DEFENSE REQUIRES A COMPILER. NEW META COMPILERS USING ADVANCED ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE METHODS ARE BEING STUDIED SO THAT EVENTUAL VHLL APPLICATION SOFTWARE CAN BE EFFECTIVELY PORTED TO THE SEVERAL GROUND-BASED/SATELLITE-BASED MACHINES. TO DO SO REQUIRES A META COMPILER THAT CAN COMPILE CODE TO DIVERSE ARCHITECTURES. RESEARCH WITH META COMPILERS DEM ...

  4. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...

  5. HIGH POWER LOW IMPEDANCE LIGHT WEIGHT TRANSMISSION LINES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, LOW IMPEDANCE, LIGHTWEIGHT ENERGY STORAGE TRANSMISSION LINES FOR PULSE-POWER APPLICATIONS IS CRUCIAL FORSMALLER, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED, PULSE-POWER SYSTEMS. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH DIELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE LINE TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCETHE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COMPLEXITY OF PULSE POWER SYSTEMS UTILIZING THESE TYPES OF COMPONENTS. EFFICIENT TRANSPORT OF 400KV, 100K ...

  6. ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER ZINC-GRAPHITE DRY PLATING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING

    SBC: IonEdge Corp.            Topic: N/A

    CADMIUM ELECTROPLATING IN CYANIDE AND OTHER TOXIC CHEMICAL BATHS IS OF SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. IN ADDITION, CADMIUM COATINGS RELEASE TOXIC BY-PRODUCTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT DURING THEIR USE AND DISPOSAL. AS A CONSEQUENCE, A UNIQUE AND ECONOMICAL DRY PLATING METHOD HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL PLATING, THIS METHOD WOULD USE NO LIQUID CHEMICALS. THE DRY PLATING CONCEPT UTILIZES A ...

  7. BIFUNCTIONAL CATALYSTS FOR THE DECOMPOSITION OF NOX

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NITROGEN OXIDES (NO AND NO2 OR NOX) ARE AMONG THE MOST PERVASIVE AND DIFFICULT EMISSIONS TO CONTROL. ALTHOUGH THE DECOMPOSITION OF THE MAJOR SPECIES (NO) IS THERMODYNAMICALLY FAVORED, THERE ARE NO COMMERCIAL CATALYTICPROCESSES CAPABLE OF DECOMPOSING NOX WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS. THIS IS BECAUSE THE OXYGEN PRODUCED DURING THE DECOMPOSITION REMAINS STRONGLY CHEMISORBED ON THE CATALYST, ...

  8. NOVEL CATALYSTS FOR THE LOW TEMPERATURE OXIDATION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NEW REGULATIONS ARE FORCING THE CONTROL OF VERY DILUTE VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND (VOC) EMISSIONS. ALTHOUGH CATALYTIC INCINERATION IS INCREASINGLY THE TECHNOLOGY OF CHOICE, ENERGY AND CATALYST COSTS RISE DRAMATICALLY AS THE VOC CONCENTRATION DECREASES. ENERGY COSTS COULD BE GREATLY REDUCED IF CATALYSTS WERE AVAILABLE WHICH ERER ACTIVE AT LOWER TEMPERATURES. TDA RESEARCH, INC. (TDA) HAS SYNTHESIZED ...

  9. High Temperature Optoelectronics

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are no commercial amplifiers that can operate at temperatures above 125 degrees Celsius. We will combine two comparable wide bandgap semiconducting materials to make electronic amplifiers and switches that operate at high temperatures (at least 500 degrees Celsius). These devices can be controlled remotely by a light beam. Hence wireless coupling to a room temperature macroprocessor is possi ...

  10. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...
