  1. Application of a Wireless Finger-mounted Ultrasound Transducer and Imaging Platform

    SBC: SONIVATE MEDICAL, INC.            Topic: DHP14006

    We propose to develop a wireless, battery powered, finger-worn ultrasound probe and wearable system capable of performing the FAST exam for use in the battlefield. The system will be based on the SonicEye? FAST exam probe, developed with DOD funding, with demonstrated capability of performing the FAST exam. This proposal also leverages a miniature beamformer currently under development with DOD f ...

  2. Technologies to Train Myoelectric Prosthesis Users for Optimal Functional Outcomes

    SBC: Coapt LLC            Topic: DHP14011

    Few tools are available to help individuals learn to user upper extremity powered prosthetic limbs. However, providing proper training and therapy is a critical component to the rehabilitation process and can often mean the difference between success or abandonment of the device. In this proposal, we build on our substantial previous work to provide a manufacturer agnostic hardware tool and intu ...

  3. Recycling Rare Earth Metals from Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries

    SBC: Onto Technology, LLC            Topic: C

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Project develops methods of recycling rare earth alloys from used nickel metal hydride batteries. Alloys of rare earth metal, nickel and other metals provide functional hydride storage materials that are critical to the operation of nickel metal hydride batteries and their applications. The current fleet of hybrid electric vehicles relies upon nick ...

  4. Preconcentration Technoloogy for Infrared Analysis of Organophosphates in Water

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: I

    Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the environment. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a novel strategy that preconcentrates org ...

  5. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankine Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    Current anaerobic digester systems are designed for capturing energy from waste from large heads of farm animals. GHD, Inc., a leading manufacturer of anaerobic digesters, has stated that a minimum dairy heard size for economical implementation of a biogas system as 800 cows. These require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger, a limiting factor in economically scaling ...

  6. Noninvasive 3-D optical quantitative imaging of engineered tissue

    SBC: DIAGNOSTIC PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: OSD11H08

    This project will bring interferometric synthetic aperture microscopy (ISAM), a powerful new method of computed microscopy, to bear on the problem of quantitative tissue assessment. The promise of tissue engineering, including wound healing, is limited unless the tissue is treated correctly at optimal times during growth. Therefore, continuous, nondestructive, microscopic 3-D visualization and qu ...

  7. Ultra Low Field MRI / MEG dense array Scanner for Combat Casualty Care

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H18

    The purpose of the proposed work is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel instrument for multi-channel nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at ultra-low field (ULF). The instrument will overcome issues involved with conventional MRI systems use in combat casualty care. It will also provide direct measurement of neurophysiological activation dynamics by magnetoencephalography (MEG) and wi ...
