  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 – ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Bayesian Linear Time Software Agents for Supporting Faster than Real-time Course Of Action Analysis

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: A06189

    We propose research to extend Management Sciences’ existing Cognitive Bayesian (CBNX) architecture to create a family of Situation Aware Reflective Cognitive Agents (SARCA) supporting real time information management and cognitive information fusion. This framework will enable development of high performance Modeling and Simulation (M&S) applications fusing data and information from operational ...

  8. Type II Superlattices for LWIR Detectors and Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A06122

    Long wavelength infrared (LWIR) detectors are highly needed for night vision and threat warning applications. The InAs/GaSb Type II heterostructure system offers unique design flexibility for new innovative detectors. Type strained layer superlattice (SLS) detectors have been demonstrated with cutoff wavelengths ranging from 3 to 32 microns. This technology has shown performance comparable to HgCd ...

  9. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: NANOSPHERE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    1. Abstract. The Mirkin group at Nortwestern University has developed methods for exquisitely sensitive analyte detection that rely upon forming hybridized arrays of nucleic acid-derivatized gold nanoparticles. These methods lend themselves immediately to colorimetric detection and dipstick-style applications. The hybridized nanoparticles are (quite literally) ‘blue,’ the separated nanopar ...

  10. Online Treatment of Subretinal Neovascular Membranes from Laser Eye Injury

    SBC: ORION International Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A06T030

    The eye is extremely sensitive to laser radiation and can be permanently damaged from direct or reflected beams. In the military environments, laser injuries may be a result of battlefield laser rangefinders, target designators, or enemy action. Individuals involved in high energy laser research or medical therapeutic lasers are also at risk from direct and reflected laser radiation. One possible ...
