  1. Portable Cell Maintenance System

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A04T028

    Cultured cell-based biosensors offer insight into the physiological action of the agent of interest, which is an advantage over other types of sensors. The development of cell-based biosensors that are field-portable would increase their utility in toxicology and environmental monitoring. One of the most significant issues hampering the development of field portable cell-based biosensors is the ...

  2. Novel Material for Capture and Spectral Detection of Hazardous Vapors

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04T021

    Rapid detection and unambiguous identification of chemical warfare agents is vital for efficient use of military and civil defense resources. While a variety of detection technologies are currently available, field-deployable systems such as the M21 passive IR standoff detector and the CAM/ICAM ion mobility detector are prone to false alarms due to the presence of interfering species. Combining ...

  3. Detection of Molecular and Biomolecular Species by Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering

    SBC: NANOSPECTRA BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: AF03T002

    The goal of this STTR Phase II Proposal is to complete development of the nanoshell-based surface enhanced Raman scattering substrate (NERS) developed in our successful Phase I work. This Phase II work will focus on commercialization of the substrate developed in Phase I by (i) refining manufacturing methods, including substrate composition, nanoshell deposition, and detection geometry to increas ...

  4. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  5. Techniques for Radiation Hardening of EKV through Incorporaton of Shielding in Component Structures Fabricated from Be/Be Alloy Substitute Materials

    SBC: SCIMITAR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: MDA04T012

    Beryllium has been the material of choice for many Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) components due to its desirable physical characteristics despite its health hazard concerns and high cost. However, beryllium has poor radiation shielding properties against x-ray, gamma ray and space radiation. Parasitic radiation shielding materials must be used in conjunction with beryllium where radiation sh ...

  6. Multispectral Nanoantenna Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA04T015

    This 18 months STTR Phase II proposal is based on work completed under the STTR Phase I grant entitled “Multispectral Nanoantenna Infrared Sensors” (Contract No. N00178-04-C-3110). In this Phase II project, we propose the development of multispectral MWIR and LWIR nanoantennas and their integration with an ultra-high speed Cellular Visual Microprocessor operating at 10,000 frames per second. U ...

  7. Isothermally Amplified Proximity Ligation Assays for Biothreat Agents

    SBC: ECHO TECHNICAL            Topic: A04T010

    Echo Technical and the Ellington Lab at the University of Texas at Austin previously developed a demonstration biosensor capable of using aptamer-based receptors (Biological Reconfigurable Interface Electronics For Classification and Analysis of Selected Elements, or BRIEFCASE). They proposed in Phase I to adapt a recently developed technology, proximity ligation assays, to a field-deployable dev ...

  8. High Power Vacuum GaN

    SBC: Stellar Micro Devices            Topic: MDA04T013

    The Phase I solicitation asked for novel approaches to power output stages in Transmit/Receive(T/R) modules fabricated from GaN or other wide bandgap semiconductor materials, leading to increased power and efficiency or decreased transmission line loss with proof-of-principle demonstrations or models based on open source X-Band Radar parameters. The SMD/MIT team responded with an innovative high ...

  9. Compositions and Processing for Improved High Temperature Shape Memory Alloys

    SBC: Marlow Industries, Inc.            Topic: N03T002

    The Phase I program demonstrated the feasibility of equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) as a processing method for high temperature shape memory alloys. Ni(TiHf) was processed at temperatures that provided sufficient ductility, but for which recrystallization was not significant. Favorable changes in microstructure were observed as a result of ECAE, in comparison with homogenized samples. Tr ...

  10. Development of PUNDA (Parametric Universal Nonlinear Dynamics Approximator) Models for Self-Validating Knowledge-Guided Modelling of Nonlinear Processes in Particle Accelerators and Industry

    SBC: Pavilion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 05d

    75866-The difficult problems being tackled in the accelerator community are those that are nonlinear, substantially unmodeled, and vary over time. These problems would be ideal candidates for model-based optimization and control if representative models could be developed. Such models must be inexpensive to deploy and maintain, and must remain valid throughout the operating region of the system ...
