Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09c
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

A spray vacuum freezing desalination process is proposed to meet the required seawater desalination cost, with water subcooling suppression at freezing. Both the energy consumption of the proposed desalination method and the cost of water are lower than that of state-of-the- art technology, and the system can be driven by either electricity or l...

Low-temperature plasma has many applications including its use for ozone production. Ozone is a very strong oxidizer (only second to fluorine) and used in widely diverse systems, some of which include ignition control and performance improvement for combustion systems, NOx reduction from power plants, and water treatment and disinfection. While...

Thermal desorption systems are being utilized to remove toxic mercury compounds from coal. However, high moisture level, poor mixing, and unsuitable heating rate reduce the efficiency of thermal desorption units. Spouted bed reactor, which have been used in various physical operations such as drying, presents a possible solution in reducing mois...

Efficient, cost effective methods for converting relatively inexpensive natural gas, available through existing pipelines, to Hydrogen rich syngas are needed. The reformed gas can then be converted into higher value products or cleaned and used with in fuel cell and other applications. The proposed plasma fuel reformer is a non-catalytic approac...

Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are attractive for several light-weight defense and aerospace applications. However, their inherent anisotropy and complex failure mechanisms limit their use in high-performance structures or components. Failure in FRP composites is a multi-scale process due to accumulation of progressive damage events. ...

A spray vacuum freezing desalination process is proposed to meet the required seawater desalination cost, with water subcooling suppression at freezing. The cost of the proposed desalination method is low, with low energy requirement and minimum carbon emission. General statement of how this problem is being addressed: Nucleating agents will be ...

Topic: S3.07
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Specific mission requirements can often requirecall for some degree of flexibility such as minimizing mechanical loads induced into payloads containing highly sensitive positional sensors or allowing containment of radiator panels within spacecraft fairing until deployment into fully operational positions. Flexible thermal straps and Loop Heat P...

Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop a low-cost Loop Heat Pipe (LHP) evaporator using a technique known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), otherwise known as 3D printing, to produce low-cost LHPs to be used in CubeSat and SmallSat applications. The wick structure in an LHP assumes the role of a pump in a standard lo...
