  1. Spontaneous Conversion of JP-8 and DF-2 to Gaseous SOFC Fuel

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This program is directed towards developing catalytic membrane reactors for promoting the spontaneous conversion of logistic fuels to a gaseous feedstock compatible for subsequent introduction into the anode compartment of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). These membranes behave as short circuited electrochemical cells with both ionic and electronic transport proceeding through the membrane bulk. ...

  2. Reactive Nanoparticles as Destructive Adsorbents for Biolog

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to demonstrate the use of Reactive Nanoparticles (RNP) for the decontamination/sterilization of biological agents and their mimics. Recent studies have shown that RNPs are very effective for chemical agent decontamination at ambient or higher temperature. Examples include paraoxon, VX, half mustard and HD. RNPs themselves are generally made of non-toxic magnesiu ...

  3. Glass Turret Visualization Method and System

    SBC: Pathfinder Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project defines a method to implement a Glass Turret Visualization System for military platforms which cannot provide a full panoramic outside view to their crews. A preliminary design of a brass board prototype for a Phase II demonstration is defined. Requirements for the prototype are based on the tactics and doctrine of a Tank Platoon, and assumes a tank commander or platoon leader as its ...

  4. Advanced Piezoelectric-Positioner Controller for High-Speed Scanning Probe Microscopy

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

    This SBIR Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of an improved control strategy for piezoelectric positioners used in scanned-probe microscopes (SPMs) to increase their speed and reliability for nanocharacterization. Rapid nanocharacterization requires fast motion of the scanned piezo probe with sub-Angstrom vertical resolution and with frequent rapid changes in its axial position. Se ...

  5. Novel Membranes for Artificial Gills

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

    Porous inorganic membranes have been traditionally used in microfiltration and ultrafiltration, and with the recent development of Angstrom scale porous materials, have received increased attention for gas separations. The high temperature and chemical stability of porous inorganic membranes are well known. In addition, they generally have fluxes that are several orders magnitude higher than pol ...

  6. SLM with Independent Phase and Amplitude Modulation

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent advances in optical processing have created an opportunity to build massively parallel processing units which are comparable in size to current desk top computers. This massive parallelism promises orders of magnitude increase in processing speed and the optical nature of the system makes it ideal for image and array processing. To date, the primary roadblock in recognizing the potential ...

  7. 3D Modeling by Videotape

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Vexcel Corporation, in collaboration with Stanford Research Institute International, proposes to design and demonstrate techniques to reconstruct 3-D scene and object structure from an image sequence, taken freely by an ordinary video camera. The techniques proposed are based upon algorithms developed as part of Vexcel's photogrammetric workstation that is used to manually build 3-D models from d ...

  8. Next Generation ATR Algorithms and Automatic Target Recognition Algorithms and Terrain Mapping with FOPEN RADAR

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Vexcel Corporation, in cooperation with Lockheed Martin Tactical Defense Systems, proposes to identify and develop next generation algorithms for automatic target recognition (ATR) using polarimetric ultra-wideband (UWB) synthetic aperature radar (SAR) data. Specifically, we will address the potential of combining the polarimetric aspects of the foliage penetrating (FOPEN) SARs with interferometr ...
