  4. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T004

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has a need for weight-optimized solutions for future platforms of large missile structures.A significant weight reduction on these MDA platforms could increase maneuverability of the payload and allow the missile to launch additional kill vehicles.High temperature composite materials offer the means by which low cost and lighter weight missile structures can be ach ...

  5. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  6. Medical Device to Assess the Viability of Tissue Prior to Skin Grafting

    SBC: Spectral Md, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A006

    The primary objective of this Phase II proposal is to construct and validate the portable SpectralMD DeepView imaging technology designed previously in Phase I. This device allows surgeons to quickly and objectively assess tissue viability in burn surgery prior to skin grafting. DeepView uses machine learning and multispectral imaging to generate quantitative prognostic images with easily interpre ...

  7. Non-invasive Telemetric Assessment of Gut Microbiota Activity in Situ

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DHA17A004

    Different regions of the human GI tract exhibit different chemical environments and different digestion metabolites. As a result, these regions support different microorganisms, with gradients in metabolic products along the length of the GI tract. Single-point measurements of microbiome metabolites (e.g. in feces) are insufficient to provide detailed information of physiological status because th ...

  8. Point of care, microfluidic, multi-electrode and optical hybrid CBC

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHA172008

    Lynntech will design and build a laboratory scale reduced weight, environmentally stable, CBC device which is usable at Role 1 and higher which requires no cold chain storage. The device is specifically intended to be used by medical personnel deployed in Health Response Teams (HRTs) who are not lab technicians and who do not have rapid, reliable access to a hematology lab. To this end, the soluti ...

  9. Injectable Bio-compatible gel composed of iPSC derived NSC for regeneration of brain tissue

    SBC: Fabrico Technology Inc            Topic: DHA18004

    Stem cell apoptosis occurs when the interaction between the host brain extracellular matrix (ECM) and human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived neural stem cell (NSCs) are directly injected into the injured brain regions. Establishment of a connection between ECM and iPSC/NSC could increase cell viability, differentiation, and promote functional recovery of the injured tissue. The critica ...

  10. High Speed Missile to Missile Communications

    SBC: CesiumAstro Inc.            Topic: MDA17001

    Missile-to-missile high speed communication can greatly enhance the operational effectiveness of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) of the United States.Currently, information from the first interceptor is sent to the launch control and then from the launch control to the second interceptor. The round-trip signal latency decreases the likelihood of successful interception. The approach pr ...
