  1. A Novel, Low Power, High Throughput, High Efficiency, Scalable Electrostatic Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB041003

    Current bioaerosol monitoring strategies rely on inertia-based sampling and suffer from high power consumption and low efficiency limitations. In contrast, our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a novel electrostatic sampler that provides dramatic improvements including low power requirement (90% for 1-10mm), high viability (>80%), scalability for varying threat scenarios, low noise, a ...

  2. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  3. Marine Asset Tag Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) using a breakthrough wireless tracking technology called near field electromagnetic ranging (NFER¿). The primary objective of Phase I is to validate that NFER¿ technology is the best RF solution for tracking containers on ships and in ports. Phase I will also (1) develop an overall architecture for the MATTS; (2) design the container tag; ...

  4. Crypto-Secure Remote Terminal Unit for New and Retrofit Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition

    SBC: THE RIGHT STUFF OF TAHOE, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an integrated Cryptography Module (CM) and RTU (CMRTU) for SCADA applications. When used in CM mode, our CMRTU will be easily retrofitted into existing SCADA networks. When used in advanced RTU mode (where higher bandwidth connections are available), our CMRTU will provide both a secure gateway function and secure Internet protocols for interaction with either central monitor ...

  5. Phage Derived Receptor Scaffold

    SBC: WELD STAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The risk of biological terrorism is significant because of the high potency, widespread availability, and ease of dissemination of some biological threat agents. The earliest recognition of a bioterrorist attack may be indicated only by the clinical manifestation of the intended disease which, in some cases, can take days to weeks to present itself. Furthermore, laboratory confirmation of the diag ...

  6. CAD Framework for Coupled Electromagnetic and Circuit Simulation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB041029

    Electromagnetic (EM) effects are becoming increasingly important issue for the performance of electronic systems. It is necessary to develop computer-aided design (CAD) tools to identify and correct problems early in the design process. Therefore, CFDRC with University of Washington (UW) and Orora Design Technologies, proposes in Phase I to: 1) Develop new concepts, models, and numerical methods ...

  7. Innovations in Multiple Hypothesis Tracking

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: SB041026

    Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) is an increasingly important element of the sensor-to-shooter computational chain. However, modern MHT methods are still limited in their ability to integrate multiple sources of information to reduce ambiguity, and in their ability to sustain multiple hypotheses over long periods of time. These limitations reduce the quality of products delivered by MHT systems. ...

  8. Integrative Platform for Cognative Workload Assessment

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: SB031011

    In modern military operating environments, military personnel are faced with the challenge of accomplishing more with less human resources. To meet this challenge, each personnel must be able to function optimally. In other words, each operator's cognitive resources must be maximized and delegation of tasks by supervisors to each operator must be based upon knowledge of the soldier's remaining cog ...

  9. Rigorous Analysis and Design of Nano-Photonic Devices using a Novel Hardware Approach

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB031016

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is integrating systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. Examples range from complete telecommunication systems on a chip to implantable medical devices smaller than human cells. The majority of these devices apply hybrid designs that integrate on a commensurate scale electronics with active and passive optical components. ...

  10. Hardware Assisted Electronic Circuit Simulation System

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041029

    In this proposal, we outline an approach for performing a complete electromagnetic analysis of electrical circuits in a fraction of the time that is currently possible. As clock rates increase, the need for such analysis grows. Current tools are inadequate to handle this burden. The computational times required excessively tax tools running on even the most state-of-the-art computers. To comba ...
