  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. High-throughput Direct Structural Screening for Drug Lead Compounds

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: A06T032

    U.S. Government personnel deployed in tropical and neotropical regions continue to be at risk for developing malaria. Drug resistant malaria parasites are becoming more common in these areas, increasing the risk of American personnel developing a serious, life-threatening disease. Cross resistance between drugs is becoming much more common. Due to the emergence of drug resistance, derivates of k ...

  3. Simulated Cognitive Leadership Challenges for Professional Forums

    SBC: COMMAND PERFORMANCE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05CR2

    Simulated leadership challenges are particularly effective in generating the discussion and interpersonal connections that are the heart of the Army Professional Forum (APF) and the source of its impact. Because asynchronous discussion on immediately relevant topics is critical to forum impact, efforts to enhance simulated leadership challenges must have knowledge sharing and professional conversa ...

  4. Computer-Adaptive Assessment of Temperament to Support Personnel Selection and Classification Decisions

    SBC: DRASGOW CONSULTING GROUP LLC            Topic: A04029

    We propose using our recently developed IRT model for scoring multidimensional pairwise preference items as the basis for a computerized adaptive assessment of personality that is designed to be fake resistant. The items will consist primarily of pairs of personality statements from different dimensions that are matched on social desirability. A respondent's task will be to choose the statement ...

  5. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    We aim to construct litmus paper-like colorimetric sensors for detection and quantification of chemical and biological agents in water by performing combinatorial selection of DNA aptamers for cyanobacteria toxins such as microcystins and saxitoxins. Aptamers are single stranded DNA that can bind target molecules with high affinity and specificity. Such DNA aptamers are biocompatible, biodegradabl ...

  6. Thermoelectric Cooling of Photodetector Arrays with HgCdTe-based Superlattices

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05T013

    The ultimate goal of this project is to develop the technology required for the fabrication of monolithically integrated passive thermoelectric devices with infrared photon detector arrays for improved uniformity and operability. The feasibility of using

  7. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    Currently there is no real-time technology to detect airborne biological warfare agents (BWAs). Conventional technologies require 30 minutes to 1 hour. We propose to design, fabricate and test user-friendly, low-logistical-load biosensors capable of the real-time (~ 30 s. or less) detection and identification of airborne BWAs with high sensitivity and specificity for all classes of bioagents – ...

  8. Simulation Tools for Strain Engineering, Manufacturing and Design of Novel Optical and Electronic Superlattice Materials and Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06075

    The overall objective of this Phase I proposal is to create a model based on molecular dynamics (MD) that can predict the specific Quantum Dot Superlattice (QDSL) heteroepitaxial structures that will grow, given various factors such as growth temperature, flux rate, and spacer thickness. AlGaN/GaN heterostructures have attracted a great deal of theoretical and experimental interest because of thei ...

  9. Linguistic Geometry Techniques for Distributed Interactive Training

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A05T001

    Research and development to support Soldier and leader training must explore not only advanced learning environments and instructional strategies but also advanced training-development processes. In the first phase of this STTR project, GIST and HumRRO re

  10. Reliable Biometrics Data Quality Measure for Multi-modality Biometrics Fusion

    SBC: LUMIDIGM, INC.            Topic: A06084

    We propose to improve biometric authentication performance by incorporating multimodal data quality analysis into a commercially practical embodiment of an extremely high-performance multimodal biometric verification and/or identification solution. We will utilize our proven multispectral imaging platform to create a whole-hand sensor that incorporates four modalities: five fingerprints, a palmpri ...
