  1. High-Power High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power. Many other applications including semiconductor processing, cellular-telephone base station transmitters and military communication systems simila ...

  3. Scalable Network of Low-Cost, Self-Powered Wireless Sensors For Commercial Buildings

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Conventional indoor environmental monitoring technologies are expensive, cumbersome to install and maintain, and do not provide the distributed granularity required to capture the necessary details for efficient energy management of commercial buildings. Developments in wireless sensor networks (WSN) provide substantial framework for monitoring and addressing indoor environments at scale. However ...

  4. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...

  5. Improving the Transfer of ERK siRNA Constructs Using Nanoporous Silica

    SBC: APOLLO SRI, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our research is focused on the potential of acid-prepared mesoporous silica (APMS) as a delivery agent for siRNA constructs to inhibit the ERK1/2 and ERK5 pathways in the treatment of human malignant mesothelioma (MM). These pathways are critical to MM cell proliferation and chemoresistance. Our initial research suggests that APMS will be significantly more eff ...

  6. A Global Test of Hemostatic Risk

    SBC: Haematologic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phase I funding for this project supported successful studies that were aimed at demonstrating the feasibility of developing an easy to use, global test in the arena of clinical hemostasis that would be sensitive to antithrombotic drugs, bleeding disorders and thrombotic pathologies. This test comprises a measurement of the rate of thrombin generation and/or to ...

  7. Theory of Mind Software for Autism and other Communication Disorders

    SBC: LAUREATE LEARNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Full participation in the human social milieu requires that one be able to understand that other people have their own goals, intentions, and beliefs (which may or may not be correct) - and that these epistemic states govern people's behavior. This form of awareness has been called Theory of Mind (ToM). Unfortunately, the development of ToM is severely delayed ...

  8. System for multidimensional analysis of growth and migration of neurons and neuro

    SBC: MICROBRIGHTFIELD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose the Orion workstation, an innovative, next generation microscope system that provides analysis tools for fully-automated quantitative change analysis in neurite outgrowth dynamics and neuronal precursor migration. The algorithms that will form the basis of this software provide information about changes seen in individual neurites and cells, yielding ...

    SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of Health and Human Services
  9. 3D Virtual Slide System for Creation and Analysis of Focusable Digital Slides

    SBC: MICROBRIGHTFIELD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Rigorous quantification methods of histological specimens have become a keystone in modern neuroscience such as investigations of neurogenesis, stem cell research, neurotransplantation, neurotoxicology, and the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases. Methods in current practice are not conducive to high-throughput studies because they a ...

  10. Integrated Teleconferencing Unit For Home-Based Interactive Exercise For Elders

    SBC: MICRODESIGN CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Supervised group exercise has been shown to be an effective component for improving balance and preventing falls among elders who have suffered falls or exhibit a fear of falling due to frailty. In a Phase I SBIR study, we developed a model for conducting group exercise programs for elders in their homes via video- conferencing, called tele-based group exercise ...
