  1. Actuating muscle for sustainable, minimally invasive energy harvesting

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SB143001

    Chronically implanted neural electrodes are used to treat various neurological and neuropsychological disorders and for brain-machine interfaces used to control advanced prosthetics. Powering these systems with batteries is risky due to loss of power and energy over time, necessitating additional surgery, creating a lapse in treatment and additional risks from potential exposure to toxic material. ...

  3. Low Cost Expendable Launch Technology

    SBC: FIREFLY SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: SB152008

    The objective of this proposal is to fully evolve a plug cluster aerospike design, moving from state-of-the-art computational analysis to manufacturing, ground testing, and then a full stage integration ground test. If the phase II option is exercised, the aerospike would be flight tested as well. The computational analysis is already well underway, with numerous studies producing results that hav ...

  4. High-Sample Rate Analog to Digital Converters for Reconfigurable Phased Array Applications

    SBC: Menara            Topic: SB153004

    High-performance, high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADC) are becoming essential building blocks in many applications including wireless modems, optical communications, test equipment such as real-time oscilloscopes, and high-energy particle physics (e.g., CERN), to name a few. While several ADC architectures have been proposed, time-interleaved (TI) SAR (Successive Approximation Register) A ...

  5. Alternative Transducers for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: SB031007

    The DARPA Phraselator currently deployed in overseas military operations is capable of translating spoken English language phrases into audible Pashto, Urdu, Dari, and Arabic language phrases. Although usable, the Phraselator is highly vulnerable to typical military environment noise resulting in significant loss of accuracy due to the limitations of existing microphone technology. Therefore the ...

  8. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  10. DIStributed COherent communication system (DISCO)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB162008

    Tactical networks need to support high data rate communications, situational awareness and connectivity over long distances possibly between disaggregated groups of communications nodes, e.g., in airborne networks. Therefore, it is essential to design a coherent communication solution to achieve high power gain and improve signal quality at receivers. Since communication nodes are not physically c ...
