  1. A High Efficiency Integrated Syngas Purification and Hydrogen Separation and Storage System

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: 27d

    A promising approach to the clean use of abundant U.S. coal resources is the production of hydrogen through coal gasification. The synthesis gas resulting from coal gasification is required to undergo several processes in order to produce hydrogen of sufficient purity for fuel cells or hydrogen-fueled turbines. Therefore, systems that combine purification and separation of syngas to produce high ...

  2. A Novel Low Cost, High Efficiency, Algal Biomass Harvest and Dewatering Technology for Biodiesel Production

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Governments and industry have recently placed significant emphasis on finding affordable renewable fuels to supplement and/or replace fossil fuel use. Biodiesel produced from microalgae has been identified as a highly attractive option for affordable renewable fuel. This project will develop a low cost, high-efficiency algal biomass harvest and dewatering process. In Phase I, a small scale syst ...

  3. Automated Manufacturing of Composite Materials inc

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: A09031

    Automated fiber placement (AFP) of thermoplastic (TP) composite jackets around large caliber gun barrels and railgun cores has enabled a dramatic increase in lethality while meeting aggressive maneuver requirements. Automated Dynamics has played a central role in the development of TP AFP technology and its use for this application. There is a continuing need to improve safety, temperature capab ...

  4. Acoustic Intercept Receiver for Naval Special Warfare Undersea Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N09T012

    The current generation of high-frequency active 3-D acoustic imaging systems presents a challenge to the covert use of Underwater Vehicles (UVs) by Special Forces teams. An acoustic intercept capability is needed to detect active signals before the UV is detected, so that it can vector away from the source. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts and Montana State University propose to design and p ...

  5. Environmental Pavement Monitor

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 07FH3

    With infrastructure costs escalating it is becoming essential to monitor the health of asphalt and concrete pavement so that timely maintenance can maximize their usefulness. This SBIR will develop a sensor that can be embedded within concrete or asphalt, which can measure moisture, temperature, stress and strain. It will provide critical data for evaluating pavement performance starting with th ...

  6. High Speed Compact Vaneaxial Fans


    We believe the following improvements are possible in vaneaxial fans: efficiency through improved fan blade design, coupled with the freedom to operate at speeds substantially higher than 3600rpm; reduced size by operating the fan at higher speed allows s

  7. Hydroelectric Energy from Wastewater

    SBC: ADVANCED ENERGY CONVERSION, LLC            Topic: 19c

    There are a large number of opportunities for extracting energy from flowing streams of water. Many of these streams are manmade. As an example, more than 15,000 publicly owned wastewater treatment facilities operate in the United States. These facilities process in excess of 34,000 million gallons of water per day (34,000 MGD). This project will develop technology for harvesting energy in was ...

  8. Prototype 800MHz Crab Cavity Development

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 39g

    Regardless of the final choice of magnet technology and optics layout, most collider schemes will have a finite crossing angle with which bunches collide, resulting in a reduction in luminosity. It is accepted in the community that crab cavities can be developed to reduce this relative angle and increase the luminosity. Therefore, this project will develop a prototype 800 MHz crab cavity, fabric ...

  9. Improved Superconducting Accelerator System for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Modern synchrotron light sources have come to rely upon superconducting radio frequency (SRF) acceleration to achieve high luminosity. To date, the workhorse in this area has been the SRF system developed by Cornell in the mid-1990¿s for the CESR-B machine. However, as the quest for higher performance continues, this system is being stretched beyond its design limits. Required increases in inp ...

  10. Advanced High-Brightness Electron Source

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03a

    High-repetition-rate (>1 MHz), high-bunch-charge (up to 1 nC) electron sources will be critical components of next generation light sources, which will be needed to upgrade DOE user facilities. These electron sources must possess high gradients at the cathode surface to provide for low emittance electron bunches. In order to achieve the desired performance levels (= 1 mmmrad at appropriate bunch ...
