  1. Anaerobic Pre-Treatment for an Algae-based Wastewater Treatment System

    SBC: Algal Scientific Corporation            Topic: F

    "Removing nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, is an increasingly-important objective of wastewater treatment in order to reduce the impacts of nutrient pollution on waterways. Current technologies to remove these nutrients can be capital intensive, require dangerous chemical inputs and have high operational costs. Our company, Algal Scientific, has developed an innovative nutrient treatm ...

  2. Value-Added Use of Milled Mixed-Color Waste Glass As a Supplementary Cementitious Material in Environmentally Friendly and Energy-Efficient Concrete Building Construction

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of cement (the binder in concrete) is a highly polluting and energy-intensive process, accounting for about 6% of global, anthropogenic C02 emissions and close to 2% of worldwide primary energy use. This project focuses on partial (~20%) replacement of cement in concrete with milled (mixed-color) waste glass to improve the moisture barrier qualities, durability, dimensional stability an ...

  3. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...

  4. Fabrication of High-Strength, Lightweight Metals for Armor and Structural Applications

    SBC: Engineered Performance Materials Company, LLC            Topic: A10060

    The project will develop a new processing technology of equal-channel angular extrusion (ECAE) providing semi-continuous multipass ECAE without necessity for billet cleaning, reshaping and preheating between passes. This approach turns ECAE into an effective operation that can be applied at large metallurgical scale and to massive production. Followed rolling, low-cost bulk products such as plate ...

  5. Compact, Rugged and Ultrafast Femtosecond Laser for Hazardous Material Detection at Range

    SBC: Arbor Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A10069

    Arbor Photonics proposes to design a compact, rugged, high-power femtosecond (fs) pulsed fiber laser system capable of delivering pulse energy greater than 100 J, pulse width narrower than 100 fs, and bandwidth broader than 25 nm. Successful development of such a laser will enable significant progress toward real-world applications of advanced, pulse laser spectroscopy for remote detection of haza ...

  6. Scenario Based Modeling of Electronic Systems

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10085

    In this SBIR project we will develop an integrated software framework for RF system-of-systems simulation. The framework will feature a number of"Point Tools"that can address and solve certain types of problems very efficiently. The primary concept is to decompose a large computational domain into a number of smaller and more manageable sub-domains. Each sub-domain is solved using the"right"point ...

  7. Ultrastrong Dual Use Nanocomposite Materials for Blast and Transparent Armor

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: A10123

    The main goal of this proposal is to develop novel lightweight high strength composite materials to be used as materials for next-generation transparent armor for multifunctional structural load support and mitigation of ballistic threats and blast impacts. While providing adequate protection most of the time, the current technology of transparent armor presents difficult challenges due to heavy w ...

  8. An Innovative Ultra Lightweight Runflat Technology


    The objective of this research is to design, produce and manufacture an ultra lightweight runflat technology for Army vehicles, based upon the MKP patent-pending Negative Poisson Ratio (NPR) material system. Using MKPs award-winning virtual prototyping and design modeling and simulation (M & S) capabilities, we propose, in cooperation with Oshkosh, to develop, prototype and validate a runflat tire ...

  9. Phased array three-dimensional beam steering system for millimeter wave sources emitting in the 100-300 GHz region

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A11006

    Herein, we propose a novel approach to achieving a broadband, phased-array transmitter operating at frequencies from 100-300 GHz. Our approach is based on the concept of optically distributing a pair of locked optical tones to an array of antenna coupled photomixers. Lightweight optical fibers enable the distribution of these optical tones to any arbitrary antenna array geometry with antenna pla ...

  10. Instrumented Projectiles for Measuring Impact Forces to Characterize Ballistic Behavior of Fabrics and Composites

    SBC: LIUMAN TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A11011

    In order to simulate the high velocity involved in ballistic impacts, at least up to some extent, laboratory used gas guns have been developed for material and structure testing. However, if the projectiles of the guns are not instrumented, they cannot provide information concerning impact mechanisms and damage processes during impacts. In an effort to improve their measuring capability, accelerom ...
