  1. A Novel Electrokinetics-Driven, Integrated Microfluidic Cartridge for Sample Preparation from Complex Matrices

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB051001

    Sample preparation has been recognized as the single most important challenge to be faced in the development of detect-to-warn (DTW) systems (NRC, 2005). Available commercial sample preparation technologies are expensive, slow (30 min to 2 hours) and require trained laboratory technicians for operation. Addressing this need, we propose to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a novel integrated micro ...

  2. A passive, multistatic, satellite based radar for maritime vessel detection and tracking

    SBC: Intellectual Properties, Inc.            Topic: HSB052003

    The largest border in the United States is not the boundary between the US and Canada or the US and Mexico, but the coastlines. Maintaining security of our territorial waters is essential in the face of an increasingly hostile world. Current maritime security strategy rests on four pillars; awareness, prevention, protection, and, response. Of these, awareness is arguably the most important; howeve ...

  3. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    SOF tactical users lack a miniature threat warning receiver that permits them to monitor RF energy and exploit hostile wireless communications while on extended deployments that necessitate very low power budgets. Having this capability will save lives and enhance the probability of successful completion of dangerous missions. The purpose of this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II ...

  4. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a compact, powerful, power-efficient lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current development efforts building an eye-safe lidar for minute aerosol detection. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts will include ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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; ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...
