  1. Field Drug Identification Kit

    SBC: SensoDX II, LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Illicit drug trafficking has increasingly been used to fund terrorist groups since the end of the Cold War. As illicit drugs increasingly finance terrorism, soldiers in the U.S. Army are increasingly playing an active role in identifying these drugs in difficult and demanding environments. Unfortunately, these devices have many shortcomings, such as being too expensive, bulky and heavy, being non- ...

  2. Monolithic Spin-Torque Microwave Diode Spectrograph

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: A16AT016

    This Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer program will simulate and demonstrate the feasibility of a Spin-torque microwave diode spectrograph for real-time determination and monitoring of incident microwave signals. The microwave detection will be performed by a bandwidth encompassing parallel array of nano-patterned magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs). When an ac current of microwave frequency ...

  3. III-nitride 1.5 Micron Photonic Devices on Si Substrates

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: A10AT015

    Research in silicon photonics has received much attention in recent years for its potential to utilize well developed silicon processing technology. A broad range of linear and nonlinear silicon photonic devices such as modulators, splitters, switches and detectors have been demonstrated. However, the most important challenge in silicon photonics thus far is the difficulty of making electrically p ...

  4. CATALYTIC MEMBRANE REACTOR FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HYDROGEN FROM BUTANOL

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: A10AT009

    A compact and efficient fuel processor that provides clean hydrogen from a high energy density liquid fuel such as butanol will allow fuel cell technology to be realized in military and commercial markets for portable applications. InnovaTek, and its proposal partner Indiana - Purdue University, will build on their combined experience in catalytic reforming to develop catalysts that are optimize ...

  5. Resonant Cavity Enhanced On-Chip Raman Spectrometer Array with Precisely Positioned Metallic Nano-Gaps for Single Molecule Detection

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT014

    In this program, Omega Optics and the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop an on-chip surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectrometer array for single molecule detection. The sensitivity of the SERS spectrometer comes from the 5-nm gap between gold nanowires, which can achieve 108 enhancement factor (EF) for the Raman scattering signals. Especially, these gold nanowires are preci ...

  6. Leader-Following for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A10AT030

    TRACLabs Inc. has worked with NASA to create indoor/outdoor, vision-based leader-following systems for sparse, extra-terrestrial environments. Brown University's Robotics Group has demonstrated leader-following and gesture recognition in high-traffic, dynamic, indoor environments using active lidar sensing. We propose to combine our technologies in order to create a passive sensing system that w ...

  7. Random Number Generation for High Performance Computing

    SBC: Silicon Informatics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT012

    Highly scalable parallel random number generators (RNGs) will be developed, evaluated and implemented for use in high performance computing on thousands of multi-core processors and general purpose graphics processing units. The main contributions are: (a) design and implementation of new parallel test methods that capture the inter-stream correlations exhibited in practice and complement the curr ...

  8. Automated Support for the da Vinci Surgical System

    SBC: MIMIC TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT029

    Over 1,400 da Vinci systems are in use worldwide and the install base grows by more than 350 robots each year. While adoption has been rapid, there exists a wide variance in performance of surgical procedures, which has had a negative impact on care quality, cost and patient safety. This is due in part to inefficient training practices and limited mechanisms for objectively assessing surgical p ...

  9. Enhanced power density PEM fuel cells via activated reactants

    SBC: EntroPlus Technology Solutions & Services, LLC            Topic: A10AT011

    The overpotentials and inefficient electrochemical reactions are largely responsible for the lowered power density in polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) based H2/O2 fuel cells. Despite the use of large amounts of expensive precious metals (e.g. Platinum, Pt) the overall efficiency of PEM fuel cells are still about 50% only. The proposed project seeks to build on Entroplus's preliminary results o ...

  10. Activated Reactants to Reduce Fuel Cell Overpotentials

    SBC: JSJ Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10AT011

    The current produced in electrochemical galvanic cells is primarily dependent on the rate of the electrode reactions where the cell's anode is less negative, supplying less energy than thermodynamically predicted, and the cell's cathode is less positive, supplying less energy than thermodynamically predicted. Reduction of electrochemical overpotentials in electrochemical systems has been the prim ...
