  1. MenuChoice:Nutrition Program for Community-based Group Homes for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

    SBC: GOOD NUTRITION IDEAS, LLC            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops a nutrition program, MenuChoice©, for community-based group homes for persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD). Adults with IDD experience poorer nutritional health and more nutrition-related secondary conditions than adults without disabilities. These conditions are preventable and modifiable through a safe, healthful diet, but multiple challenges precl ...

  2. Negative Electron Affinity GaAs as a Thermoelectric Cooler Element

    SBC: Saxet Surface Science            Topic: A11014

    This project will result in investigation and modeling of heat flow in a Bi2Te3-Sb2Te3 superlattice based thermoelectric cooler stack and the development of the series of processes for negative electron affinity activation of the stack substrate as a basis for an advanced sensor cooler in which current is transported across a vacuum gap that acts as a conduction and convection thermal barrier betw ...

  3. PROWL: Perception for Robotic Operation Without Light

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A10175

    At TRACLabs Inc., we believe that commercially-viable, nighttime sensing of the local 3D terrain is achievable in the near-term by careful selection and integration of sensing hardware and intelligent perception algorithms. Yet, multiple important research items do exist. Our Phase I aims are 1) to build a prototype sensor that synchronizes COTS thermal imagers into a stereo-camera head, 2) to dem ...

  4. Self-Powered Biosensor for Water Toxicity Monitoring

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A10AT025

    Contamination of water supplies with toxic inorganic chemicals and toxic inorganic materials (TIC/TIMs) is a major concern for the U.S. military due to their worldwide prevalence and accessibility. Traditional, analyte-specific approaches are unfeasible to detect the approximately 70,000 potential TIC/TIM contaminants. Biologically-based sensor systems have the potential to provide general infor ...

  5. Conducting Stress-Strain Analysis by Remote Sensing

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A11aT003

    Cracks and loose fasteners are continuing structural problems on H-60 helicopters resulting in unexpected downtime to repair/replace structures. This reduces availability to the warfighter, increases risk, and is expensive and time consuming. The proposed embedded system would provide early detection and assessment of loose fasteners and strain allowing planned repairs and mitigating problems. ...

  6. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics and the University of Arizona will develop a passive multi-band compressive sensor for imaging and object recognition applications. The Army has identified a need for multi-band imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions among others. Multi-band systems offer enhanced discrimination capability and the ability to perform in adverse conditions (at night, smo ...

  7. Efficient Methanol Electrolyzer for Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT012

    While methanol has many properties that make it a potentially excellent fuel for portable fuel cells, the large over potential required for oxidization and its tendency to transport through most electrolytes limits the actual energy densities that can be achieved to a small fraction of its potential. A potential low temperature approach to reducing system complexity and eliminating the problems o ...

  8. Inorganic Oxide Supported Biomimetic Membranes with Ion Channels for DMFC Application

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    Methanol crossover of commercial Nafion membranes is a major issue that results in lowering of the efficiency of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). The reason for high crossover in Nafion membrane is the bulk water transport associated with proton transfer. It is thus advantageous to have separate transport of protons and water. Nature has answered this problem in biological membranes which conta ...

  9. Sensitive and Shape-Specific Molecular Identification

    SBC: RYON TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A11aT017

    The ability to rapidly detect, identify and monitor chemical agents remains a challenge of significant importance to the Armed Forces. Existing chemical sensing techniques have shortcomings that inhibit widespread implementation. To address this situation, Ryon Technologies is developing a portable instrument that is based on Rydberg Fingerprint Spectroscopy (RFS) in combination with mass spectro ...

  10. Integrated THz Plasmonic Chemical and Biological Sensors

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: A11aT022

    Detection of chemical and biological threats is becoming increasingly important in today"s world of asymmetric enemies. The threat of attack using chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents has increased significantly both abroad and at home due to the availability of information and large quantities of industrial chemicals. This growing threat requires new techniques and technologies for high s ...
