  2. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  3. Scroll Pump for Vapor Liquid Mixtures of Refrigerants

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SB112001

    The purpose of this topic is to develop a pump that can pump two-phase, liquid and vapor mixtures of common refrigerants and heat transfer fluids, without oil lubrication. The challenges of pumping in this regime are well known: Two-phase, liquid-vapor refrigerant mixtures are a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor, by definition meaning that there is zero net positive suction head. M ...

  4. Design and Development of High Performance UV Imaging Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB093011

    Magnolia proposes to develop and demonstrate small unit cell APD array with high gain for high resolution imaging in the ultraviolet (UV) band. We will use MOCVD process to demonstrate GaN/AlGaN based APD arrays on lattice matched substrates with very low dark current and high avalanche gain. Models will be developed to understand characteristics of small pixel size UV detectors and mechanisms for ...

  5. Improved Collection, Specificity, and Longterm Reagent Storage for Point of Care Diagnostics

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: SB111001

    The role of point of care (POC) diagnostics in the medical field has rapidly grown in the last few decades into a multi-billion dollar industry. For many diagnostic applications, POC diagnostics technologies are rapidly displacing in-vitro laboratory based diagnostics because POC systems allow for more rapid and effective diagnosis and triage, which leads to improved patient outcomes and reduced h ...

  6. System for Detection, Identification, and Geolocation of Radio Emitters with low-Swap Sensors (DIGRESS)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB111004

    There is currently no convenient, effective way to detect, identify, and geolocate (DIG) personal UHF/VHF radio communications devices in field operations. These are commonly used by adversary command, control, and spotter activity. The techniques used by special ops, search and rescue, and electronic warfare personnel do not satisfy this need because soldiers in field situations lack the time, ...

  7. Digital Eddy Current Tomography for Submarine Pressure Hull Inspection Through the Coating

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: SB091011

    A capability to inspect submarine pressure hulls through the special hull treatment could result in significant savings in maintenance costs and improvements in fleet readiness. This poses a challenge for conventional nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, as acoustic methods are defeated by the coating and others require access to the surface. This proposal focuses on evolving MWM-MR-Array (M ...

  8. Robot Fabrication via Layered Manufacturing

    SBC: Cyphy Works, Inc.            Topic: SB103002

    In this phase I proposal, we seek a solution to the problem of wiring sensors and actuators on periphery of a robot"s frame(i.e. those positioned to make contact with environment). We will accomplish this using printing technologies and a new proprietary layered carbon fiber forming technology. Because we will enhance segments from CyPhy Works UAV with this technology, this project will have a ...

  9. Unified Bayesian Global ISR

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    Automated construction of a unified global ISR pictureone that optimizes theater-wide tactical priorities, while permitting ongoing operator contextual guidancepresents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. First is the huge variety of seemingly incommensurable information sources and information types. Second, automatic global ISR algorithms must compute optimal solutions that are base ...

  10. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: SB103001

    Biologically-inspired motions such as flapping, perching, walking, running, swimming, grasping and manipulating, are difficult for the most advanced robots today. The primary limitation comes from actuation technology in terms of stress/strain ratio delivered to the joint by the actuator overcoming specific resistance. Electromagnetic motors have low torque at high speeds and hence cannot be used ...
