  1. An Economic Process for Coal Liquefaction to Liquid Fuels

    SBC: Specialties Group, Inc.            Topic: 16

    78208S Current processes to produce liquid fuels by direct hydrogenation of coal are not cost-effective. Therefore, improved process chemistry and/or reactor design will be required to produce transportation fuels from coal at prices that are competitive with currently used fuels. This project will develop a coal liquefaction process that uses a nanoscale active catalyst precursor in a plug flo ...

  2. Low-Cost High-Temperature Heat Exchanger for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells using a Near-Net-Shape Ceramic Powder Forming Process

    SBC: Spinworks, Llc            Topic: 14b

    79788S The DOE-sponsored Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA) seeks to develop commercially-viable 3 to 10 kW Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems by the year 2010. One of the weak links in this system is the heat exchanger, which typically consumes more than 30% of the installed cost ($ 400/kW) and fails before the 40,000 hour design lifetime goal. While traditional ceramic materials ...

  3. Safer, Non-Toxic, Alternative Electrolytes

    SBC: Toxco Inc.            Topic: 17

    79248S The use of ultra-capacitors in hybid electric vehicles is hampered by the toxicity and flammability of acetonitrile (AN), which is used as the basic solvent for the ultra-capacitor electrolyte. For non-AN, non-aqueous, ultra-capacitor electrolytes to achieve comparable performance to the current AN-containing ultra-capacitor electrolytes, both the performance and the much lower conductivi ...

  4. Investigation of (CaO)x(Al2O3)x for Thermal Insulation and Molten Aluminum Contact

    SBC: Westmoreland Advanced Materials            Topic: 38a

    75253S The beneficiation of bauxite ore, used to produce aluminum and the subsequent refining of the aluminum to specific alloys and/or shapes, is an energy intensive process. Large amounts of heat energy (generated via electrical discharge in the primary process and from the burning of fossil fuel in the secondary process) are lost as a result of the insufficient thermal insulating properties o ...

  5. Geophysical Characterization of the Multiplew Phase Saturation of Rocks and Soils: Development of Methods and Software for CO2 Sequestration

    SBC: New England Research, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    79399S The world is becoming increasingly concerned about global warming and the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2. Therefore, the capture and permanent sequestration of CO2 has become a major goal related to future energy development and use. This project will develop technology for assessing potential sequestration sites and for monitoring their ultimate storage integrity. The approac ...

  6. Through Screen Optical Head Tracker


    Ascension Technology proposes to develop a fast, new six degrees-of-freedom tracker, phasorBIRDTM, immune to cockpit and helmet scatterers of magnetic/electrical field energy. It will integrate seamlessly with training simulators, aircraft, tanks, andcombat air operations centers (CAOCs). Design features will enable it to exceed static accuracy and repeatability of the best magnetic trackers while ...

  7. Conductive Repair Coatings

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

    The central technical objective of the proposed project is development of a Conductive Repair Coatings which can be applied to multiple aircraft substrates and meet specific electrical conductance throughout the life of the coating. We propose for Phase Ito develop a conductive repair coating (CRC) having improved conductivity level and consistency in conductivity over previous systems. The system ...

  8. Training Environment Support System (TESS) for Enhancing Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Simulation Training

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The Training Environment Support System (TESS) is designed to contribute to space operations training by (1) adding satellite operations center (SOC) support applications to Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) training facilities and (2) providinginstructors and trainees with training aids. Currently, high fidelity, simulation-based training for satellite operators does not feature certain import ...

  9. Conversational Agents in a Pattern Oriented Training Environment (CAPOTE)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Initial pilot training programs such as Undergraduate Pilot Training (UPT) presents students with an array of complex skills to acquire and integrate in a dynamic, time-sensitive performance context. Since most of a student's hours in UPT are spent on theground, training could be fundamentally improved if students had on-demand access to flight training devices that were sophisticated enough to pr ...

  10. Satellite Technician Advanced Training System (STATS)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    It is very difficult to develop complex diagnostic skills in the absence of a tangible and concrete system context. Air Force space system operators are required to develop diagnostic expertise for spacecraft they have never and will never see. Thisproblem has been recognized by training cadre at Vandenberg AFB. A significant need exists for models of satellites which can used to reinforce clas ...
