  1. "Point of Injury"Sampling Technology for Battlefield Molecular Diagnostics

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: SB111001

    In this project Optofluidics, Inc. proposes to develop a"CLIA waivable"sample collection method for the concentration and quantification of blood-borne biomarkers associated with late phase hemorrhagic shock and traumatic brain injury. The sample collection technology is based on (1) a finger prick based assay, (2) a multistage packed bead filtration system, and (3) a novel"nanofluidic collapse" ...

  2. 3D Memristor Architectures for Software Defined Radio

    SBC: Privatran, LLC            Topic: N093222

    PrivaTran proposes the use of newly-developed manufacturing methods that convert materials commonly found in conventional integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing into memristor devices with increased packing density and an advanced, three-dimensional (3D) architecture. The memristor devices can be formed in the interconnect layers of a conventional IC so that the area available for underlying transi ...

  3. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  4. A Compact Visual-Odometry Sensor for UGVs

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A09203

    This is a proposal to design a compact visual odometry sensor that can be mounted on unmanned ground vehicles. Visual odometry (VO) is a technique that estimates the ego-motion from images perceived by moving cameras. A self-contained visual odometry sensor would provide several significant benefits to unmanned ground vehicles, including: 1) providing position information to platforms that do not ...

  5. A Fast and Robust Noninvasive Brain-Computer Interface for Online Field Systems Control

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: OSD10CR2

    Impact Technologies, LLC, in partnership with Brandeis University, proposes to develop a brain-computer interface (BCI) that enables real-time control of autonomous devices in battlefield environments by extracting high-level commands from noninvasive EEG signals from operators. In addition to the standard processes such as artifact removal, feature extraction/selection, and pattern classification ...

  6. A Flexible Power Management System Architecture for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N09T015

    Small UUV range in size from 9"to 12.75"in diameter and are used for missions that include forward fleet reconnaissance, mine detection, inspection, oceanography, payload delivery, and communication; a flexible and modular energy storage system with advanced power management system architecture (PMSA) is needed to meet these applications. To be effective the PMSA must be developed with proper ener ...

  7. A Framework for Robust Engineering of Large-Scale Distributed Real-Time Systems

    SBC: L&S COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF083047

    Our Phase I project addressed the challenge of creating a new paradigm for the development of software in which developers evaluate the performance of software architecture and design options early when it can have the greatest impact. Our vision moves software performance analysis from an isolated set of tools that require laborious manual transfer of information among design and analysis tools t ...

  8. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  9. A Hybrid Approach to EMA Prognostics (EMAP) for Engine and Aerospace Applications

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: AF093176

    ABSTRACT: Impact Technologies, in collaboration with our OEM partners, proposes to develop a hybrid approach for real-time prognostics of electromechanical actuators (EMAs) that will advance the state-of-the-art in prognostics technologies and help enable the use of EMAs in high power applications. The overall approach will feature a high fidelity dynamic model of various subsystems to virtually ...

  10. A Meta-modeling Approach to Failure Prognosis Using Existing Data

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: AF093207

    ABSTRACT: Impact Technologies, LLC, proposes to develop and demonstrate an A Meta-modeling Approach to Failure Prognosis Using Existing Data. Historically, implementation of CBM/PHM algorithms for fault diagnosis and prognosis require the availability of"ground truth"fault progression data derived from seeded fault testing or on-platform data acquisition. Such data are not readily available for ...
