  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Aeromedical Stabilization and Evacuation of Traumatic Brain and Spine Injuries: A Novel System for Patient Transport

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: OSD09H13

    The ASES concept, consists of three subsystems including a Patient Support Platform (PSP), a Comfort Mat System (CMS) and a detachable Aeromedical Equipment Module (AEM). This system provides a stabilization and traction platform solution for aeromedical evacuation with comfort mat subsystem using heated alternating pressure air bladders or gel technology to prevent pressure sores.

  4. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  5. Development and commercialization of a tent trap for the surveillance and control of disease-carrying flies

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: OSD09H27

    Due to the possible transmission of blood-borne diseases, biting insects, mosquitoes, midges, and sand flies pose increasing danger to deployed military personnel and humans in locations around the globe. The SkySight Technologies approach to creating and demonstrating a tent trap to capture biting flies and mosquitoes that come to bite a human resting inside was to modify a standard tent with the ...

  6. Food Toxicity Detection Using C. elegans

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: OSD09H24

    Current toxicity testing of foodstuffs involves mass spectrometry analysis which requires a>24 h turnaround time in deployed military operations. This length of time is dangerous for personnel. Rapid identification of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) in food using a sensor that is biologically-based and easy to use eliminates that danger and would provide exactly what is needed for toxicity eva ...

  7. Handheld Aptamer-Magnetic Bead-Quantum Dot Sensor for Leishmania

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: OSD09H21

    Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) has completed a successful Phase I SBIR contract in which 72 new candidate DNA aptamer sequences against Leishmania major were developed and screened by ELISA-like plate assay. Several pilot assays were developed from the highest affinity candidate aptamers using a commercially available handheld and battery-operated fluorometer. In Phase II, OpTech p ...

  9. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  10. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...
