  1. An Innovative Microwave Applicator for Paint Stripping

    SBC: MJR Scientific            Topic: N/A

    An effective removal of paint from many surfaces can result in increased safety and reduced maintenance cost for many systems. The ideal paint stripping system should; 1) easily strip paint from various structures, 2) allow safe operation and safe removal of paint hazardous by-products (e.g. lead paint dust), 3) not damage the surface, and 4) by simple and reliable for manual and automated operati ...

  2. Filterless Heat exchanger precleaner based on guide vane approach

    SBC: MJR Scientific            Topic: N/A

    The efficiency, maintenance cost, and service life of off-highway vehicles can be drastically improved with the development of a heat exchanger precleaner. Development challenges include ease of integration with present and new vehicles, the device compact size, high contaminates removal efficiency, low initial and maintenance cost, and high reliability. The objective of Phase I of this project is ...

  3. Diode Laser Raman Scattering Prototype for Continuous On-site Characterization of Fuels and Environmental Contaminants

    SBC: PROCESS INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose developing a diode laser-based full-spectrum Raman scattering instrument prototype incorporating fiberoptic coupling for rapid, continuous on-line and remote monitoring of fuels. Raman's narrow, well-defined peaks and its insensitivity to moisture contamination allow for full-spectrum detection with 0.1% sensitivity for liquids and with 30 to 60 second response times. Traditional Raman ...

  5. A New Generation Virtual Reality Individual Portal

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build an energy extractive Individual Portal (I-Port) to the virtual world enabling the user to traverse a large virtual workspace in a very small real space. Using a commercial exercise treadmill, this device will improve virtual training, health maintenance and evaluation, and have a large market for education, recreation, and adversarial gaming. A motion capture, energy extracti ...

  6. FIBEROPTIC INTERFACES (FOIs) FOR SENSOR NETWORKS

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Many applications exist for structures, surfaces and materials whose shape, mechanical properties, or functional behavior can be altered in real-time to respond to changing conditions without explicit external commands. Automated systems which interconnect, address, and control large numbers of distributed sensing and actuation elements (pressure sensors, shear sensors, microflaps, etc.) are key ...

  7. Radiofrequency Plasma Ionization/Time-of-flight Mass Spectrometer for Real-time MOnitoring of Trace Chemical Vapors During OB/OD Operations

    SBC: Sensar Corp            Topic: N/A

    Open burning/open detonation (OB/OD) operations for the disposal of obsolete, defective, and waste military energetic materials, such as propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics now require emissions data to support RCRA subpart X permit applications. Many of the current analytical methods used to obtain these data, such as gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and supercritical fluid chromatogra ...

  8. FLEXIBLE THERMAL STRAP FOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Space-based systems must dissipate tens to hundreds of watts for communications, housekeeping, etc. TRA proposes a novel thermal strap which would allow efficient energy conduction from heat sources to the structure of the spacecraft or to heat dissipation units. The thermal strap would utilize high thermal conductivity graphite fibers. Techniques for joining the fibers to end connectors will be i ...

  9. High Conductivity Composite Material for Power-Electronic Building Blocks

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Power Electronic Building Blocks are envisioned to allow large amounts of power to be controlled by small, modular blocks, with similar blocks being used for both military and commercial applications. In order to accommodate the large amounts of heat generated by the electronic switches within the modules, they should be soldered or brazed onto a high conductivity substrate with the same coeffici ...

  10. High Conductivity, Low-Cost Aluminum Composite for Thermal Management

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Among composite materials, aluminum/graphite and copper/graphite composites are potentially leading materials for use in high-performance electronic systems. The use of aluminum matrix (Al/Gr) composites for packaging material, however, have been severely limited because of the raw material and fabrication costs of the composite. In order to produce an inexpensive packaging material that exhibit ...
