  2. High Power Density Dual Rotor Permanent Magnet Motor with Integrated Cooling and Drive for Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: 1

    There is a critical need for electrification of transportation systems. The proposed technology enables the development of very high-power density permanent magnet motors, which when coupled to an integrated SiC drive allows for an overall specific power beyond 12 kW/kg. The proposed concept relies on the tight integration of a high-power density dual-rotor permanent magnet motor, high power densi ...

  3. DroN2O: A Drone-Based System for Measuring Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Agricultural Fields

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: 1

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an inexpensive system to sense nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural fields using laser-based sensors mounted on drones. These sensors include an optical absorption cell, a wind sensor, and a camera for plant health and ground assessment. The measurements from these sensors will be combined and processed with artificial-intelligence-enab ...

  6. Direct Air Capture Utilizing Hydrogen-Assisted Carbonate Electrolysis

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: T

    Reduction of greenhouse gases is vital for the long-term environmental health of the planet. A large portion of the CO2 emitted each year in the United States is released from distributed sources, like cars, smaller factories, and farms. Direct capture of CO2 from ambient air is therefore necessary for the eventual reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. However, capturing the CO2 ...

  7. Making Cement at Ambient Temperature Using 55% Municipal Solid Waste Ash

    SBC: Designs by Natural Processes, Inc.            Topic: N

    This novel approach to making cement at ambient temperature uses 55% Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) incinerator ash AND adds chemicals and wastes to sequester environmentally problematic combustion gases, chemicals and heavy metals during incineration, that in turn eliminates undesired chemicals in the final product leachate. The main project objective is the development of a novel cement product bas ...

  8. Colloidally Ultrastable, Highly Insulating, and Thermally Conductive Alkyl-hBN Nanofluid for Large Power Transformers

    SBC: C-Crete Technologies, LLC            Topic: L

    This project integrates a collection of advanced surface chemistry, colloidal engineering and high-throughput characterization followed by standard testing and pilot demonstration to manufacture insulating nanofluids (NF) for large power transformer (LPT) oil, with a projected lifetime of >80 years. The key cause of transformer failure is overheating, which becomes more likely over time due to bre ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Drone Control in Turbulence via Reinforcement Learning

    SBC: Aifly Ventures            Topic: AI

    The broader impact of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to improve drone control. Current controllers are effective in specific environments but perform poorly in environments and flight conditions such as turbulence, thereby narrowing the scope in which drones can be used. This project will advance a plug-and-play solution in which users can focus on higher-level t ...
