  1. Feasibility of Using a High-speed AI-driven Experimental Platform to Develop an Optimized DNA Template for Cell-free Protein Expression

    SBC: BigHat Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 90

    We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using a high-speed artificial intelligence (AI)-driven experimental platformto optimize the DNA template for cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) to maximize protein expression. Our platform isdesigned to rapidly find an optimal DNA sequence among millions of possible sequences through repeated designbuild-test cycles: AI is used to design the DNA templat ...

  2. Advanced Measurement Probe System for Non-Nulling Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 90

    Industrial facilities and power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing method developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error due to biases from human operators and any non-axial flow in a stack.NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow testing f ...

  3. An Optical Imaging System to Characterize Mechanical Deformation at Microscopic Length Scale

    SBC: Additive Manufacturing Innovations LLC            Topic: 90

    Additive Manufacturing Innovations LLC (AM-Innov) in collaboration with Clarkson University and Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) proposes a new optical imaging system to characterize microscopic deformation of materials. The system, named as a Mechanical Testing at Microscale system (MT@micro), uses a micro-tensile testing device to mechanically load the specimen uniaxially and an optical imaging p ...

  4. An Integrated Data System for Machine Learning based Prediction of Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC)

    SBC: HelloMaxwell, Inc.            Topic: 90

    Radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) are key components for wireless communication system. RFIC’s hard-tomodel parasitic effects and poor simulation accuracy require multiple trial-and-error tape-outs (fabrications) to meet product specs. Tape-out is very slow (2 months) and very costly (as high as $2M). In the coming 5G era, this problem gets worse as mmWave frequency parasitic effects a ...

  5. Pyrocast: Wildfire Forecasting & Data Services

    SBC: Reax Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 90

    This work will develop a real-time wildfire forecast system that automatically detects and forecasts the spread of every fire in the Continental US and updates each forecast in real-time as additional information becomes available. Fire forecast data, which are generated “in the cloud” using high performance computing resources, are transferred to a web server hosting a mobile-friendly web map ...

  6. Standardizing Grease Sampling and Characterization By Automated Online Device

    SBC: Poseidon Systems, LLC            Topic: 90

    Scheduled grease sampling is one of the more reliable methods for detecting mechanical issues within machinery. Offline laboratory‐based analysis of the grease can indicate component failures, such as spalling via high concentrations of ferrous particulates. However, consistency, costs, and frequency of sampling are less than ideal. Manually collecting grease samples can put personnel in danger ...

  7. High Throughput, High-Pressure Small-Angle Neutron Scattering Sample Environment

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 90

    We address a need of the neutron user community by creating a minimum viable prototype of the only high-throughput hydrostatic pressure small angle neutron scattering sample environment (HTHP-SANS-SE). Our HTHP-SANS-SE will greatly improve the ease of use and reliability of measurements under extreme environments, thereby increasing throughput on the beamline and expanding feasibility. Current HP- ...

  8. Model-Based Application of NIST Cybersecurity Standards

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: 90

    The proposed innovation will use a model-based approach to streamline understanding and application of standards. NIST standards addressing cybersecurity, presented in the form of documents, spreadsheets, and database tools, provide thousands of complimentary and overlapping items for users to track. Significant effort is expended understanding the standards before attention can be focused on the ...

  9. ENT:Extended Nestor Tagging

    SBC: RedShred, LLC            Topic: 90

    In order for manufacturers to adopt data-driven decision making, they must tap into unstructured data that sits unused. The process of annotation and knowledge extraction from unstructured text data is a time consuming and challenging bottleneck to adopting machine learning at scale.  This Phase I SBIR proposes implementation of an enhanced cloud-based platform enabling maintenance and other orga ...

  10. Awayr Security: Validating the NIST Phish Scale Toward Artificial Intelligence Approaches Toward Human Cybersecurity

    SBC: Awayr, Inc            Topic: 90

    Remote operated social engineering (ROSE) attacks account for a surprising share of successful cyberattack. For example, The Verizon Data Breach Incident Response 2019 report found that approximately 94% of all malicious code was introduced into systems via email. Threat actors, illegally, benefit from knowledge gained from repeated massive remote operated social engineering operations. Defensive ...
