  1. A Performance and Thermal Simulation Code for Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The complex HEV power systems necessitates flexible and dynamic simulation software providing tools for evaluating, characterizing and optimizing these systems. Existing software have neglected to characterize significant component data such as heat loads, cabin cooling requirements, battery thermal management, and heat rejection. Vehicle performance (accounting for environmental conditions and s ...

  3. Intelligent Distributed Multi-Agent Hybrid Control Systems


    Autonomous intelligent multi-agent systems are systems that sense and manipulate their environment by gathering multi-model sensor data, compressing and representing it in symbolic form at various levels of granularity, and using the representations to reason and learn about how to optimally interact with the environment. This project proposes an innovative multi-agent distributed intelligent cont ...

  5. Diesel Engine Efficiency Improvement Through Closed Loop Air-Fuel Ratio Optimization

    SBC: BKM,Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of optimizing the performance of diesel engines through closed loop electronic control of air management hardware. Optimizing the air/fuel ratio of a turbocharged diesel engine at each speed and load operating point has been proven to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, particularly NOx and particulates. The innovative te ...

  6. Portable, Hand-Held, High Speed, PCR Thermal Cycler with Real-Time Optical Detection

    SBC: CEPHEID            Topic: N/A

    Cepheid proposes to develop a hand-held, battery-operated, high-speed DNA diagnostic instrument with true real-time, multi-wavelength optical detection and integrated sample purification modules. This instrument will allow practitioners to perform PCR reactions 5-10 times faster than almost all commercial instruments (i.e., 30 PCR cycles in as little as 15 minutes). It will also perform real-tim ...

  7. Epitaxial Liftoff for an Integrated MEMS-Optoelectronic Optical Read-Write Pick-up Head

    SBC: ELO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this effort is to develop a high data rate, lightweight, low cost optical read-write head combining epitaxial liftoff integration of opto-electronics with MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) technology. Lifted-off thin film lasers and photodetectors, unlike their bulk counterparts, are light enough to allow rapid motion and positioning by MEMS actuators. MEMS allows new techno ...

  8. Development of Highly Reinforced Amorphous Metal Matrix Composites

    SBC: Amorphous Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Amorphous Matrix Composite samples will be developed and fabricated using Tungsten and Carbon wires as the reinforcements, and the bulk amorphous alloys known as LIQUIDMETALTM as the matrices. Emphasis will be placed on achieving high loading fractions of the reinforcing materials. A process to commercially manufacture will be studied and mapped, and feasibility of the process will be determined ...
