  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. 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 ...

  3. CAD Model and CR and MRI Scan Data to MCNP Input Format Conversion Software

    SBC: White Rock Science            Topic: N/A

    We will develop two programs to process data describing a model geometry and convert it to input acceptable to the Monte Carlo transport codes MCNP and MCNPX. One program will read CAD files in the ACIS solid body SAT format. Solid bodies, surfaces, and cells described in the SAT file will be converted to equivalent MCNP objects where available. Where there is no MCNP equivalent, such as for splin ...

  4. Miniature Directional Microphone for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Phraselator, a handheld automatic translation device, currently uses a cardioic microphone as an input for automatic speech recognition (ASR). This microphone is highly vulnerable to performance degradation in typical noisy military environments and,thus, there is a need for an improved transducer for this application. We propose to develop a new directional microphone that is immune to extr ...

  7. Composite Stuff-Proof Windshield and Lightweight Pilothouse Assembly

    SBC: PACKER TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL (FORME            Topic: N/A

    The Phase II effort builds on Phase I. Phase II starts with an integrated product and process design and engineering analysis of the baseline structure described in the Phase I report and variants that may reduce cost and risk. The emphasis is on use ofnonlinear FEA with continuum analysis to handle stiffeners, window frames, and connectors. After review and approval by SOCOM, the design is fab ...

  8. Cluster-Based Repositories and Analysis

    SBC: NIMKATHANA CORP.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a feasibility study to develop and inexpensive and scalable cluster and software architecture (comprising commodity components) to support data warehousing and mining applications. This study will include design, prototyping, and evaluationcomponents with the overall goal of being commodity-driven (and henceforth cost effective) and emphasize ease-of-use and deployment to support DoD an ...

  9. Power Supply for Meso-Sensors

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Wireless sensors and active r.f. ID tags have a critical need for small power supplies. TPL proposes to develop a meso-scale power system that exploits volumetric microbatteries and micro-supercapacitors to maximize energy and power densities. Thesethree-dimensional microdevices are a unique feature of our approach, and deliver superior performance compared with conventional thin film batteries. ...

  10. Durable Coating to Prevent Aircraft Icing

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The accretion of ice in arctic environments is an expensive problem for the power transmission and microwave industries; the military, whether on land, sea, or in the air; and airlines that operate in blizzard-like conditions. Traditional de-icingtechnology relies on chemicals to melt the accreted ice and is only a temporary solution. Some coatings have been explored that attempt to prevent the fo ...
