  1. Novel Extended-Zone High Power WDM Couplers

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: AF13AT03

    ABSTRACT: High power and low insertion loss WDM components will be developed. In manufacturing WDM components, solid core fibers in both polarization insensitive and polarization maintaining, will be pursued, along with photonics crystal fiber components. A range of fiber sizes and device specifications will be developed and commercially offered by Q-Peak. The component that we propose to develo ...

  2. Novel Sacrificial Fibers for Microvascular Composites with Embedded Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Aurora will demonstrate on our automated fiber placement (AFP) machine that we are able to lay up composite panels that contain sacrificial fibers that can be thermally decomposed to create a microvascular network of small cavities that allow the panel to act as a heat exchanger. The AFP machine is capable of producing composite parts from mold tools as large as 9"high by 18"wide by 56 ...

  3. Voxel-based Fusion (VOXION)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: In ISR applications, multiple sensors can be employed to achieve more accurate parameters of interest on targets, improving discrimination and detection. But, the proliferation of sensor systems has created a large volume of multi-sensor data across a number of physical spectra. These resulting measurements can be so disparate that traditional aggregation methods perform poorly given h ...

  4. Representation and Inference for Developing Deep Language Engines (RIDDLE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT11

    ABSTRACT: Intelligence analysts need to process large amounts of text information to form an understanding of a topic of interest. The sheer amount of information can be overwhelming, so automated text analytics that assist with filtering, information extraction, and document understanding, can be highly beneficial. Deep natural language processing (NLP) applications require both structural knowl ...

  5. GUARD: General Utility for Assessing Risk of Disclosure

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT14

    ABSTRACT: Information is a national asset that must be protected. To make effective use of this asset, information sharing is critical between government agencies, with foreign government partners, and with the private sector. At the same time, in practice, balancing information sharing and information protection can be difficult. Tools are needed to address many challenges, including managing ...

  6. Compact CMOS-Compatible Optical Transceiver

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF14AT13

    ABSTRACT: Close integration of photonic devices with silicon complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) electronics can yield significant performance improvements in many applications. The recent development of novel integrated structures in silicon including waveguides, resonators, and photodetectors will enable dramatic reductions in size, weight, and power for components implementing compl ...

  7. Development of small near-infrared laser system capable of improving immune respo

    SBC: SEMINEX CORPORATION            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad and long-term objective of this project is to amplify the effectiveness of vaccines without the use of chemical or biological adjuvants. We will address this objective by demonstrating the feasibility for small laser- based devices to enhance responses to intradermal vaccination. A number of investigators have shown that a promising new way to make va ...

  8. Therapeutic Utility of renalase and renalase peptides in cisplatin-mediated renal

    SBC: BESSOR PHARMA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cisplatin is a cornerstone therapy for a number of cancers including testicular, bladder, ovarian and lung. It is also used to treat cancers in children. In all cases there is a high incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) that can also lead to later stage kidney damage. This risk limits its use. We have found in pilot studies that renalase, or peptide fragment ...

  9. Non-ATP competitive inhibitors of cyclin dependent kinases as cancer therapeutics

    SBC: PPI PHARMACEUTICALS, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States with some sub-types remaining essentially untreatable, expansion of available drug targets will provide significant new options for the development ofmore effective antineoplastic agents. The major goal of this project is to apply a unique drug discovery strategy to cancer drug development. Th ...

  10. DNP Polarization Agents for Real-Time Metabolic Imaging and Clinical Diagnosis

    SBC: DYNUPOL, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary / Abstract Although standard MRI techniques provide valuable structural insight, a related technique known as magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) adds powerful real-time metabolic information about the tissues under study. MRS provides early detection of disease, monitoring treatment efficacy, and, in the case of cancer, a dramatic reduction in unnecessary biopsies. However, bro ...
