  1. Microcapillary Quartz Sensors for Screening Injectability of High Concentration Protein Formulations

    SBC: Qatch Technologies, LLC            Topic: None

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I proposal is to determine the feasibility of viscosity characterization of high concentration protein formulations (HCF) by QATCH’s microcapillary quartz technology. HCFs are non-Newtonian fluids with shear-thinning behavior and they are administered to patients by subcutaneous or muscular injections. The injectability of HCFs depends on the viscosity at high-sh ...

  2. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  3. Epsilon-near-zero thermal emitter for combat identification

    SBC: Third Floor Materials, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM183004

    The USSOCOM is soliciting a thermal solution for combat identification (CID), which can be distributed to partner forces at low cost. Third Floor Materials (3FM) is proposing an innovative solution based on an emerging class of materials, epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) materials. The proposed approach will leverage the companys experience with these materials and proposes a solution with unique emissive ...

  4. Low Profile Night Vision Goggle Mounting Solution

    SBC: Swift Universal Optical Systems LLC            Topic: SOCOM191003

    The current method of stowing night vision goggles (NVG) on the helmet when not in use is a recognized source of acute and chronic neck injury.A mechanical solution that allows the NVG to be stowed in a position that reduces torque on the operators neck is required. Such a solution would reduce the users fatigue in operation as well as the likelihood of long-term chronic injury by moving the cente ...

  5. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  6. 3D Modeling Indoor Space

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM173002

    SOCOM seeks an innovative, computationally efficient, and automated process that uses high-resolution, still-frame images and/or Full Motion Video, collected from handheld devices, to generate 3D models of building interiors.The ability to use handheld inputs for 3D modeling, at its fundamental level, is a core interest for computer vision and photogrammetric engineering. Hence, the solution will ...

  7. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Group 2-3 UAS engines have low mean time between overhauls (MTBOs), often with as little as 200-400 hours before maintenance must be conducted.This leads to significant maintenance cost and logistics tail for deployed operations.Two-stroke piston and rotary engines for Group 2-3 platforms have common maintenance drivers such as carbon fouling, and wear of cylinders, housings and bearings.Phase I r ...

  8. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project will evaluate the feasibility of an innovative optical sizer for estimating drop sizes in sprays that have very small drops. The technique is based on the NIST provisional patent (application number 62/358,264). The NIST invention sorts particles by size over the range of 10nm to 10μm. Drop sizing is achieved in these sprays using an intense ...

  9. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  10. Advanced Engine Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    UAV engines have a mean time between overhauls of about 400-500 hours, after which the engine is torn down for inspection. One of the primary findings during this overhaul is the presence of abundant carbon deposits in the engines and the combustion areas. There are a number of issues caused by carbon build up. When large carbon deposits are formed, they reduce the smooth air flow which can res ...
