  1. Design and Realization of a Dual Function OCM/MPM for Imaging TEMPs

    SBC: Distant Focus Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Regenerative medicine is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that will result in new engineered medical products. The introduction of a high-resolution, non-destructive imaging technique that is capable of penetrating deeply into the highly-scattering scaffold medium has the means to accelerate the development and commercial utilization of these novel materials. Multi-photon microscopy (MPM) is b ...

  2. Novel Nanofluidics-Based Sensor System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB062001

    We propose to develop a novel nanofluidic-based biosensor system that precisely detects and quantifies the biological threat agent. This handheld portable device will consume little power, be ruggedly constructed, use tiny sample volumes, and be UAV-mountable. No commercially available system uses the proposed technology. The proposed system will separate the genomic contents from a population ...

  3. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  4. Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: SB041005

    The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a prototype sensor system for measuring the concentrations of unlawful or hazardous materials in shipping con ...

  5. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: R*BAT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Special Operations forces (SOF) operate in all weather conditions. It has identified a need for a micro-cooling system that can be vehicle mounted and man-portable, as well as provide a capability to cool vehicle mounted communications and electronics equipment. To meet the needs of SOF the system must be small, lightweight, quiet, low power, and gasless. We propose a compact micro-cooling system ...

  6. Through-Wall Sensing (TWS) Technologies for Dismounted Infantry

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB041022

    Time Domain (TDC) will adapt our man-portable, hand-held, radar that detects stationary persons through walls for non-stabilized operation. With this device, soldiers in urban environments can quickly, safely and confidently assess building occupancy and maintain a tactical advantage. TDC’s SoldierVision® (SV) Sense Through The Wall (STTW) Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Radar product is designed for Mili ...

  7. Sparse Array Applications for Small Satellites

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB062020

    The purpose of this project is to provide a technology that enables the use of constellations of satellite based, coherent, RF sparse arrays. Such sparse arrays would have higher resolution than conventional approaches and would provide superior remote sensing capabilities at a fraction of today’s cost. The key enabling mechanisms are 1) the ability to accurately measure the distance between i ...

  8. Low-Cost, Networked, Disposable Chemical Sensor

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: SOCOM05010

    There is an acute need for a networked chemical sensor that is inexpensive enough to allow it to be treated as a disposable item - deployed and left in-place until the end of its useful life, or until operations move out of communications range. Electrochemical microarray sensors can be fabricated at low enough unit cost to make the development of a disposable sensor node feasible. These sensors ...

  10. Flip Chip Hermetic Packaging of RF MEMS

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    RF MEMS technology, MEMS switches in particular, hold great promise for wireless communication and sensor systems. Military systems, such as RF seekers and ground-based radars, are the most likely first platforms for advanced RF MEMS. Excellent MEMSswitching devices have recently been developed, but because of packaging problems, no commercial integrated product exists. The objective of this propo ...
