  1. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptamer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: C3NCERB4

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SE ...

  2. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C3NCERD1

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and lo ...

  5. Nanosphere Beacons for Real-Time Detection In Vivo

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: SB041013

    Current techniques for real-time detection of signaling pathways in live cells are limited. Accacia International LLC, will develop better strategies by combining the signaling properties of molecular beacons and aptamer beacons with the advantages of quantum dot photoluminescence to produce quantum dot beacons (QDBs). In order to demonstrate the potential of these novel signaling nanoparticles, ...

  6. Pulse width modulated servo valve enabled by single crystal piezoelectric

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB032033

    Active Signal Technologies and Moog propose to demonstrate a solid state pulse width modulated pilot stage for a servo valve enabled by single crystal PMN-PT. The basic mechanism and labor intensive fabrication processes used to build conventional servo valves remain largely unchanged since the device was launched in 1951, resulting in high cost and limited bandwidth. A digitally controlled valv ...

  7. A Novel Integrated Emotional State Recognition System Using 3D Imaging and Thermal Analysis

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: SB032038

    A critical drawback of existing automatic facial expression classification, gesture analysis, and emotional state recognition technology is the lack of integrated and complimentary measurement modalities to perform reliable cognitive and emotional state assessment in operational environment. The purpose of this SBIR is to develop a novel, integrated sensor that incorporates three sensing modaliti ...

  8. Cognitive Processing Hardware Elements

    SBC: HOPLITE SYSTEMS LLC.            Topic: SB041019

    Hoplite Systems LLC proposes to implement the Soar cognitive architecture within a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). This system, called the RAISE (Reconfigurable Architecture for Improved Soar Execution) will demonstrate that an FPGA's parallel, reconfigurable, multi-clock capabilities enable significantly better Soar processing performance than a traditional CPU. Hoplite will also develop ...

  9. Hardware Architectures for Flexible Component-Based Hybrid Cognitive Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB041019

    Creating a realization of cognitive processes, reasoning, and behavior is a challenging problem due to its size, scope and complexity. Current realizations of cognitive systems are software based and typically implemented on conventional von Neumann processors. However, performance is a constraining factor in applications that require extensive testing, training and learning as well as in the im ...

  10. Miniature Reaction Wheels an Enabling Technology for High Performance Nanosatellites

    SBC: Maryland Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: SB032051

    Current nanosatellite designs are limited by the lack of small, low cost attitude sensing and control components. Although activities are underway to develop sensor technologies, precision pointing and agility also requires miniature reaction wheels. Presently no such wheels exist. We propose to develop a wheel that fills this void, enabling nanosatellites to perform an array of missions requir ...
