Bio-derived butanol for cosmetics and consumer products
Catalytic process lowers the cost of production from renewable sources and increases yields of this ubiquitous chemical
Ideally suited to check radio frequency diodes and identifying matched diodes for use in superheterodyne receivers
Reusable and environmentally benign conductive polymer appliqué coating
Based on a gecko's footpad, the coating eliminates the need for hazardous methods of paint removal and maintains effective corrosion inhibition
High-density fuels from renewable alcohols
Net heats of combustion (NHOC) 20% higher than JP-10 which can be generated from sustainable alcohol feedstocks are ideal for volume-limited aircraft such as...
Electromagnetic shield enhancement for visible and infrared cameras
Novel approach modifies the transmitted wave around the shield instead of modifying the shield itself
High-energy density fuels
Net heats of combustion 20 percent higher than JP-10 and can be generated from renewable and sustainable alcohol feedstocks
Energy harvesting footwear using solenoids
Placed in the sole of a shoe, this device uses magnetic induction to produce and store energy useful for small electronics
Dynamic Mission Re-planning Tool for ideal placement of...
Display formats aid the electronic warfare aircrew in assessing the effectiveness of a given jamming scheme and assists in projecting an optimum flight path...
High-performance jet and diesel fuels from renewable isoprene
Combination of an oligomerization catalyst with a metathesis catalyst allows for the synthesis of high-density cyclic fuels with performance advantages over conventional petroleum-based fuels
Renewable fuels and lubricants
23 issued US patents; 5 US applications; and 9 international filings
Mechanism for coupling and aligning cylinders
Modular angular alignment clocking mechanism (MAACM) allows the angular position of a guidance kit's control surfaces to be clocked to a desired orientation relative...
