  1. Demonstration of SOFC Operation on JP-8 Reformate Produced by a Cold Plasma Process

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Ceramatec Inc. and Synergy Technologies Corporation have teamed to demonstrate Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)operation on JP-8 reformate produced using a cold plasma process. SOFC stacks, installed in a test stand originally designed for use with a thermallyintegrated natural gas steam reformer, will be fueled instead with JP-8 reformate produced through a cold plasma process. The patented SynGen c ...

  3. Low-Cost Enamel Coatings on Stainless Steel Foils for Thin Film Photovoltaics

    SBC: Sommer Materials Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An inexpensive method to insulate the CIGS thin-film from the stainless steel substrate is needed to make monolithic production of lightweight CIGS-based photovoltaics feasible. This coating must allow good foil flexibility and exhibit high breakdownvoltages. The coating must also be compatible with the CIGS and metal substrate layers, both thermophysically and chemically. An inexpensive method ...

  4. Assimilating Physics-Based Model for High-Latitude Electrodynamics Specifications and Forecasts

    SBC: Space Environment Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to construct a physics-based, Kalman filter, data assimilation model of high-latitude electrodynamics. Our new model will provide accurate specifications and forecasts for convection electric fields, particle precipitation, conductances, Jouleheating rates, field-aligned and ionospheric currents, and ionospheric densities in the D, E, and F regions. High-resolution patterns of the ele ...

  7. 2730 Wh/kg Chemical Hydride Based Hydrogen Storage/Generator

    SBC: TRULITE TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    The biggest problem with fuel cells is now the fuel storage issue. Fuel cells function most efficiently (>50%) when supplied with pure hydrogen. Unfortunately, storing large quantities of hydrogen in a compact, lightweight form has proven to be verydifficult. Most of the hydrogen storage methods available do not come close the matching the energy density of gasoline. However, chemical hydrides ...

  8. Nickel Nanostrand Additives for Conductive Resins and Composites-Phase 2

    SBC: Conductive Composites Company, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    A new form of small diameter, high aspect ratio nickel, known as nickel nanostrands, has been created and evaluated. The unique material exhibits a complex geometry, small diameter, high aspect ratio and high conductivity. It appears to provide anexcellent nanostructured three dimensional conductive lattice in a polymer, or acts as an interconnecting conductive lattice in composites whose reinforc ...

  9. Performance Based Support Model

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For several years, since Defense policies have promoted Performance Based Acquisition (PBA) instead of traditional Military Specification definition of requirements, logistic support teams have struggled with the realities of applying revolutionaryconcepts to fielded weapon systems. Historically when a part or assembly failed often, the government usually bought more identically configured items ...
