  1. Complementary Piezo Energy Harvesting for Small Satellites in Eclipse

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB162012

    Triton will demonstrate a piezo energy harvesting system (PEH) for a cubesat or similar small satellite platform that complements existing photovoltaic elements, trickle-charging the spacecrafts batteries in periods of eclipse when photovoltaic output is low, thereby reducing the required spacecraft battery capacity.

  2. Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting with Bistable System (PEHBS)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SB162012

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a piezoelectric energy harvesting system using a bistable structure(s). Mid will combine piezoelectric energy harvesters developed from its commercial piezo energy harvesting (PEH) products with Ohio State University and their novel approach and vast experience on piezo energy harvesting with bistable systems. Phase I will demonstrate a proof-of-c ...

  3. Ultra-Low H2 Permeable, Tough 3D Filament Wound Cryotank

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: SB162014

    NanoSonic has developed a hydrogen (H2) dispenser hose to realize H2 as a safe, reliable, and cost competitive replacement for gasoline.This material exhibits ultra-low H2 permeance (0.31 cc/100in2Atmday) before and after being fully folded (180-degrees) three times under cryogenic conditioning (-50C).It is thus feasible as a leak-free cryotank for liquid oxygen (LOX), RP-1, and liquid methane con ...

  4. Nautical Evaluation of Mammal Observations (NEMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    To protect marine mammals from ship strikes and sonar exposure, teams of human watchstanders maintain a tedious, costly, and daylight-only visual lookout. However, manned search is impossible on unmanned vessels like DARPAs ACTUV. Automated video search can provide affordable surface detections without human fatigue, and automated acoustic search can provide detections below the surface, but both ...

  5. Near-Surface Whale Detection from Autonomous Ships Using Asynchronous Sensor Fusion System (ASSIST)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    SSCI, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and Olin College of Engineering propose to develop, implement and perform initial simulation testing of the ASSIST (Asynchronous Sensor fuSIon SysTem) for near-surface whale detection. ASSIST is an information fusion approach which will integrate and process information from sonar, thermal imaging sensor, radar, and an information service such as the Right ...
