  1. Measuring the Concentration of Host-cell Proteins in Biomanufacturing Using Silicon Nanowire Array Sensors

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: NA

    Our innovation is a low cost, sensitive, quantitative biosensor that can detect many biomarkers on the same chip. Our sensor consists of vertically aligned silicon nanowires. The silicon nanowires’ high surface area to volume ratio makes them sensitive to the environment around them and can thus lead to high sensitivity detection. Each of the nanowires can be functionalized to be sensitive to ei ...

  2. RASP- Automated Scoring Program for Rodent Ultrasonic Vocalizations (USVs)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: DHP16C003

    Rodents serve as models for the human brain and behavior, and their calls give researchers a window into their mood. Unfortunately, rodent calls are ultrasonic, so a researcher must record a test and then play the audio back at a slower speed to manually categorize and count calls. Software does exist to accomplish this task, but it does not have the ease of use or accuracy that researchers want. ...

  3. Portable, Non-Contact, Quantitative, Physiology and Health Assessment Imaging System

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: DHP16C005

    Accurate assessment of burn depth and surface area are important to clinical decision-making regarding treatment. Initial assessment determines fluid requirements and transportation decisions to distant-care facilities. The clinician must determine if the wound will heal itself or whether excision and grafting are necessary for optimal wound healing. The standard of care remains visual inspection ...

  4. Biomechanical Rat Testing Device to Validate Primary Blast Loading Conditions for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17AT022

    Blast induced Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major threat to the health of military personnel serving in modern theaters.As such, the biomechanical injury pathways of TBI are, and have been, the focus of many animal studies.However, differences in the experimental setups across laboratories make it difficult to draw definitive conclusions from the resulting data.A tool that can accurately estim ...

  5. Wireless Non-Invasive Advanced Control of Microprocessor Prostheses and Orthoses

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A005

    There are several current and imminent orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) fitting scenarios that would greatly benefit from the ability to wirelessly collect and transmit physiological information from the user. Both upper- and lower- limb O&P fittings that: 1) use osseointegration, 2) have cable management issues, and 3) could benefit from physiological information from locations proximal to the prost ...

  6. Bio-magnetic Detection of Neuromuscular and Wound Related Injuries

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A001

    It is generally recognized that the human body transmits electro-magnetic fields (EMF). The Phase I program demonstrated a practical solution to detect these emissions. The technology was shown to be compatible for integration into wearable textiles. The Phase 2 program will focus on demonstrating the capability of discriminating between healthy and injury related EMF emissions such that it can be ...

  7. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  8. Autonomous Meteorological Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA and the National Weather Service maintain an immense network of automated maritime, surface, and upper-air observing stations throughout the world and at great expense. These automated stations provide regularly updated data for both short-term weather prediction and long-term climate models. Maritime and surface observations occur as frequently as every 10 to 20 minutes, ...

  9. Riptide Hypoxic Zone AUV

    SBC: Riptide Autonomous Solutions, LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Buoyancy driven oceanographic gliders, although reasonably cost effective, have challenges operating in the zones due to high gradients in water density. Under this topic, Riptide will provide a cost-effective autonomous undersea vehicle (AUV) design leveraged from Riptide's family of man-portable AUVs that can more effectively map the hypoxic areas. The stated goals of this to ...

  10. Clean Energy Source to Power NOAA Long-termObservation and Monitoring Networks

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Creare proposes to develop a self-sustained small-scale power conversion system to power NOAA’s weather monitoring network stations located in harsh uninhabited locations. Our miniature heat engine will take advantage of the existing year-round thermal gradients found between water and air in Arctic regions. Our baseline approach is the development of a compact Turbo-Rankine ...
