Concurrent Technologies Corporation | Date: 2013-03-15

A self contained energy generating system that comprises a galvanic battery and a power distribution system. The energy generating system is used to purify water by using a reverse osmosis device that draws in a source of water and transfers electrolytes to the galvanic battery. Upon contact with the electrolyte, the galvanic battery produces energy by an oxidation-reduction reaction of the cathode and anode and transfers energy to the power distribution system, which in turn provides power to the osmosis device. Additionally, the system includes a hydrogen fuel cell to increase the amount of energy generated and a power storage device for storing excess energy generated. The system also includes a controller which is configured to regulate the overall operation of the system.

A system for converting a waste stream to energy including a water purification device that outputs purified water and a waste stream that includes an electrolyte, a wind and electrolytic energy generation device that receives the waste stream from the water purification device and outputs energy based on the electrolyte present in the waste stream and a power distribution system which receives and stores the energy from the wind and electrolytic energy generation device. The water purification device is further connected to the power distribution system and receives energy enabling further operation of the water purification device.

Aluminum-magnesium alloys are ideal for ship construction; however, these alloys can become sensitized and susceptible to intergranular corrosion when exposed to moderately elevated temperatures. A stabilization treatment has been developed to reverse sensitization and restore corrosion resistance, such that in-service plate can be refurbished rather than replaced. This treatment involves a short exposure to a specific elevated temperature range and can be implemented with portable units onboard a ship.

A composite electrode adapted for use in a flow battery stack system has a carbon felt stratum forming a semi-porous reaction zone and a carbon foam stratum forming a porous flow path zone. The composite electrode is less compressible than prior art electrodes having similar conductivity and specific surface areas. Flow battery stack systems employing the composite electrode operate with lower feed pressures, experiences a lower pressure drops across the electrodes, and realize improved electrical resistivity. Alternative embodiments provide electrical conductive elements and a current collector disposed on a surface of the composite electrode.

A self-sealing flow frame is provided having a first frame component and a second frame component. Each frame component is provided with a tongue-and-groove configuration that when assembled forms a tessellation engagement, which creates the seal. When each frame component is assembled into a flow frame, with the inner surfaces facing towards each other, the tongue-and-groove arrangements create a seal profile that circumscribe constituent parts of a device within which the self-sealing flow frame is being employed. As the frame components are compressively secured and fastened together, a tessellation engagement of the seal profile forms the fluid seal. Fluids of the device are prevented from exfiltrating the device, and are contained within the self-sealing flow frame by the fluid seal.


JOHNSTOWN, PA--(Marketwired - March 01, 2017) - The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has awarded Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) a competitively bid prime $498,000 contract to research artificial intelligence (AI) automation capabilities under the agency's Boosting Innovative GEOINT (BIG) program. Under this contract, Concurrent Technologies Corporation will further advance the state of knowledge in virtual assistants by evolving from a singular user-centric orientation to a viewpoint of the user within an interdependent network of humans and cognitive machines. The goal is to enable task automation and management to be cloud-wide rather than confined within a traditional desktop or server architecture; and augment and scale human analysts' cognition and intelligence via a capability refined for intelligence community needs. "At CTC, we're very proud of our work to advance technology in a variety of disciplines, especially those that enhance U.S. national security," said Edward J. Sheehan, Jr., Concurrent Technologies Corporation President & CEO. "One of our company's strengths is developing and delivering advanced intelligence; this contract allows CTC to contribute to a difficult technical challenge involving machine learning capabilities and cloud-based technologies that support national security mission needs." Concurrent Technologies Corporation will provide NGA an AI Analyst Virtual Assistant (AVA) capability, incorporating smart technology to address significant challenges in multi-tasking and processing large quantities of rapidly changing information. The AVA will provide recommendations and predictions based on analysts' needs and tasking and by socializing analysts' activities to one another. Specifically, Concurrent Technologies Corporation will develop the standards, architecture, and tools to create, run, and manage AVA services within the government's cloud environment. It will apply microservices design patterns and use open-source technologies for a horizontally scalable system that supports and promotes modern DevOps practices. This effort will demonstrate the approach with a reference implementation of the proposed architecture. "We are pleased to partner with NGA as it leads the way within the intelligence community to evolve intelligence analysis tradecraft, to fully realize the benefits of information sharing via the cloud, and provide machine learning capabilities that enable analysts to focus on the cognitive tasks that human analysts do best," said Pete Hanson, CTC's Senior Director, Intelligence Solutions. Concurrent Technologies Corporation will perform this work at its Johnstown, Pennsylvania, facility and will partner with the Penn State University College of Information Sciences and Technology and its Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory. Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) is an independent, nonprofit, applied scientific research and development professional services organization. Together with our affiliates, Enterprise Ventures Corporation and CTC Foundation, we leverage research, development, test and evaluation work to provide transformative, full lifecycle solutions.
