  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. Marine Asset Security Monitoring and Tracking System

    SBC: Navigational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB041005

    The worldwide ocean going freight transportation infrastructure, known as the Marine Transportation System (¿MTS¿) is the cornerstone of the global economic well-being. Approximately ninety percent of all cargo moves via the MTS. However, one need only look to the open movement of containerized cargo to find simple, effective, and efficient means of large-scale economic damage. The result is a c ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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; ...

  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. Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF04165

    The AEgis Technologies Group, Inc. proposes to develop a 2D focal plane array UV/VIS light modulator using MEMS-based diffractive grating technology that will greatly enhance the capability of HWIL test systems. Grating ElectroMechanical Systems (GEMS) technology developed by Kodak Eastman will be enhanced and modified to accomplish a wideband, analog modulator capable of providing significantly h ...

  7. Innovative Durable Thermal Protection Systems for Next Generation Civil and Military Space Vehicles

    SBC: Aero Thermo Technology, Inc            Topic: AF03126

    Reusable space vehicles currently being designed by the United States Air Force (USAF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for both military and commercial applications require innovative structural components that are both light weight and able to withstand the severe thermal environments of multiple reentries into the atmosphere without time consuming and expensive refur ...

  8. Deployment Survivability for Mobile Ground Stations


    The overall goal of Phase II is to develop a powerful tool to correlate large amounts of asynchronous data in near real-time and meet current operational requirements for the Joint Command and Control Community for rapid, accurate Battle Damage Assessment and operational assessment. The team will build upon a successful research project in Phase I in which the team was able to demonstrate that cog ...

  9. Practical CFD Models for Predicting Lean Blowout and Ignition in Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF03168

    Current steady-state CFD combustion codes cannot predict transient combustion phenomena, such as Lean BlowOut (LBO) and ignition in gas turbine combustion systems (e.g. main combustors, interstage turbine burners, and augmentors). In this SBIR, we propose to develop an innovative analytical capability so the combustor designer can address operability issues. The key to predicting LBO/ignition is ...

  10. An Advanced Numerical Tool for Simulating and Optimizing Spray Cooling in Micro-Gravity

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF03175

    Under AFRL SBIR Contract F33615-03-M-2384 Phase I, CFDRC has developed and demonstrated the foundation of a comprehensive code for modeling spray cooling hardware for micro-gravity applications. The code includes effects that are critical in micro-gravity and cannot be thoroughly investigated using gravity dominated ground-based experiments. In Phase II, this code will be further developed, refin ...
