  1. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  2. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  3. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  4. A High Density Liquid Hydride Based Hydrogen Storage System

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A liquid chemical hydride-based hydrogen storage system is proposed for high density hydrogen supply for fuel cell power generation applications. Research works performed at MER showed that certain liquid hydrides can be catalytically dehydrogenated at temperatures as low as 150¿C. The released hydrogen gas can be withdrawn from the system through a hydrogen permeable membrane to achieve comple ...

  5. A High Dimensional Approach to Quantum Computing


    "It has proved difficult to code arbitrary algorithms in the quantum computingparadigm. We have noticed that our patented corob Technology shares a commonhigh dimensional mathematical basis with entangled qubits. Corob Technologyis a computationally complete alternative computing paradigm in its own right.The common mathematical basis provides a means for us to map the known propertiesand programm ...

  6. A High Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    In Phase I MER demonstrated the superior performance and power-to-weight ratios of the VS-Rotary engine. In Phase II MER will team with the University of Arizona who will provide engine modeling, simulation, and analysis along with advanced precision machining and fabrication. MER will also team with NCE of Tucson to provide test and systems integration development of the engine to the applicatio ...

  7. A High Production Rate Process to Fabricate Low Cost High Strength MMCs In Net Shape

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07063

    Military systems are traditionally produced in steel because of its excellent mechanical properties and low cost, but suffers due to its high weight and poor corrosion resistance. At ½ or less the weight of steel enables weapon systems with greater lethality, survivalability, transportability, and maneuverability and in a corrosion resistant material lowers ownership cost. Titanium metal matrix ...

  8. A High Production Rate Process to Fabricate Low Cost High Strength MMCs In Net Shape

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07063

    Military systems are traditionally produced in steel because of excellent mechanical properties and low cost. For a lighter weight and more mobile force, all aspects of military systems are being scrutinized for possible weight reduction. Metal matrix composites with discontinuous reinforcements offer the potential for the very high strength and modulus required for targeted Army applications su ...

    SBC: ENGINEERING SPECTRUM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program will concentrate on the design of pulse-amplitude modulators using innovative architectures to overcome the limitations of conventional designs in driving predominantly capacitive loads, such as the modulating anodes of high-power microwave vacuum tubes. The design will necessarily be capable of operation at high pulse voltage levels and at high pulse repetition rates. Typic ...

  10. A High-Throughput Platform to Culture the Unculturables

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SB171001

    It is estimated that 99% of bacteria on Earth do not grow under standard laboratory conditions.These unculturable bacteria are an untapped resource for the discovery of new molecules and biological products that could have a powerful influence on disciples ranging from medicine to agriculture.Unculturable microbes have been identified worldwide in many types of samples, including environmental sam ...
