  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. Micro Attitude Thruster System (MATS)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: N04059

    Long range gun launched munitions developed for Naval Surface Fire Support can reach altitudes that are essentially outside the Earth's atmosphere (exoatmospheric). Once outside of the Earth's atmosphere, these projectiles are no longer subjected to atmospheric forces that can aid in the stabilization of the projectile. Current technologies employed to maintain low angles of attack on re-entry inc ...

  7. A Novel, Microfabricated, Electro-Immuno, Integrated Sensor-Sampler for Bioagent Collection and Detection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N02118

    We propose to develop and demonstrate a compact, low cost/power, high-sensitivity, integrated sensor-sampler that provides vastly superior performance while concomitantly achieving drastic size/weight reduction. The overall device is expected to be of shoebox size, to operate with AC/DC power, to generate

  8. Enhancement and Optimization of a Lobed Mixer for AAAV

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N03165

    CFDRC proposes to reduce the thermal and acoustic signatures of the AAAV engine exhaust with a minimal loss in installed engine performance by designing, optimizing and testing a passive, lobed mixer/ejector system. A design, analysis and test cycle based upon accurate and validated Computational Fluid Dynamics analyses, parametric design optimizations and detailed testing is proposed to reduce th ...

  9. Interactive Tool for Healing of Geometric Models for Mesh Generation Applications

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N03133

    The availability of perfect or water tight CAD geometry is imperative for mesh generation purposes. Unfortunately, many CAD software vendors are not interested in solving geometry data exchange issues, resulting in poor IGES/STEP interface implementations. In practice, if the imported geometry turns out to be less than perfect, the end user is confronted with an unnecessarily complicated mesh gene ...

  10. Active Control of Lean Blowout Using an ANN-Based On-Line Direct Controller

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N04126

    Combustor Lean Blowout (LBO) is a significant challenge in modern military gas turbine combustors. LBO can occur either during rapid engine deceleration or during operation at idle conditions with water/steam ingestion. Current practice is to design adequate safety margins to avoid the onset of blowout. However, significant engine performance improvements can be realized though the development o ...
