  1. Microbial Enhancement of Flax to Replace Fishmeal and Oil in Salmonid Diets

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Flax containing omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high protein content offers advantages as a potential source of plant protein and oil to replace fishmeal and oil in aquaculture feeds; reducing both pressure on marine fisheries and the principal source of contaminants in farmed fish. MMP ahs used innovative fungal culture technology in separate processes to develop low cost, multi activity cell ...

  2. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  3. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...

  5. Plasma Surface Engineering for Bearing Wear and Corrosion Prevention in Advanced Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: ARCOMAC SURFACE ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF05181

    Current engine bearing lubrication technology begins to break down at the high rotation speeds, loads and temperatures required for advanced fighter engines. Furthermore, in combat operation bearings may have to operate for short periods with no lubrication, and also resist pervasive corrosive environments. In this program the bearing material will be modified to be "slippery", more durable, resi ...

  7. Recognizing Target Variants Using Transformational Adaptivity

    SBC: GENERAL INTELLIGENCE CORP.            Topic: AF05219

    One of the greatest obstacles to robust Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) is achieving a high level of performance in operating conditions outside those for which the system is designed. The bio-mimetic map-seeking circuit (MSC) has provided remarkably simple solutions to extending operating range for recognizing 3D targets allowing recognition from any viewpoint, tolerating clutter and distract ...

  8. Agent Based Computing Machine

    SBC: LEXXLE, INC.            Topic: AF05109

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop an attached processor called an "agent based computing" module (ABC Machine) that is optimized to convert information into knowledge and enable "cognitive computing" for higher understanding. The architecture of the ABC Machine is based upon a concept called "statistical dataflow computing" and it operates in local contexts over string operators. I ...

  10. Cold Cathode for Traveling Wave Tubes

    SBC: POWER TECHNOLOGY SERVICES (PTS), INC.            Topic: AF05001

    A novel method of creating hot electrons via a pn junction will be used to eject electrons from a cold cathode. The accelerated electrons will have suficient energy to surmont the work function and surface dipole. The cold cathode will be used in a new type of minature Traveling Wave Tube or "Twystrode". Advanced semiconductor materials with low work functions will be produced and evaluated as pla ...
