  1. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  2. STTR Friction Stir Processing for Superplastic Forming

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N06T038

    Friction Stir Processing (FSP) is an emerging technology that can be used to pre or post-process a range of materials, including aluminum, to locally modify material properties. It is known that FSP can be used to enhance material properties for improved superplastic forming (SPF) behavior of aluminum. This can potentially allow for dramatic cost reductions of SPF and aluminum fabrications, all ...

  3. Gaseous, Liquid, and Gelled Propellant Hypergolic Reaction Mechanisms

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T001

    ORBITEC proposes a parallel computational and experimental effort to understand the phenomena underlying hypergolic ignition of gelled propellants. Gelled hypergolic propellants offer many benefits to modern propulsion systems. They offer good insensitive munitions characteristics and versatile performance. However, gelled propellants typically exhibit longer ignition delays than liquid propell ...

  4. High-yield plant based manufacturing of bioengineered spider silk (Phytosilk)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T015

    The high strength to weight and elasticity properties of spider silk make it of significant interest for the production of advanced fibers for military and civilian applications. Plants may offer the only feasible mechanism to produce quantities of spider silk proteins sufficient to sustain large scale manufacturing of these high performance fibers. Successful implementation of bioengineered spid ...

  5. Protein Production in Tobacco from an Amplified Inducible System

    SBC: RXOA BIOSCIENCES LLC            Topic: A06T015

    This Phase I proposal will test a UV-B light inducible system in tobacco to produce exceptionally large amounts of protein. There are three principal components to the system: 1) a tightly regulated, UV-B inducible promoter fused to a geminivirus replication associated protein (Rep) coding region, 2) a geminivirus-derived vector that is rapidly amplified by the Rep protein to produce very high y ...

  6. Ranging and Acuity Enhancement for Terahertz Imaging Spectrometers

    SBC: Tera-X, LLC            Topic: A06T020

    This Phase I effort identifies and analyzes a variety of antennas that can be used to mitigate standing-wave effects for pulsed and/or CW sub-millimeter-wave and THz imaging spectrometers independent of their technology (e.g. mm-wave vector network analyzers vs. fast-pulse time-domain THz systems). A close collaboration with Prof. Susan Hagness, who is an expert in computational electromagnetics a ...
