  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, demonstrate, and validate a novel integr ...

  2. Novel Electrostatics-based Sampler for Bioaerosol Collection in Small Analysis Volumes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB061001

    Current bioaerosol monitoring and evaluation systems are largely based on collection of airborne pathogens in a liquid medium, followed by the detection of the targets of interest. While available aerosol collection technologies employ large collection volumes, biosensors are capable of processing only a small fraction of the collection volume. Our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a ...

  4. Real-time, Three-dimensional, Visualization Software for Current and Next Generation Consequence Assessment Models

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA04006

    We propose to develop a forward-deployable, three-dimensional visualization capability suitable for incorporation into web-based, next-generation consequence assessment models, such as the Joint Effects Model (JEM) and the Integrated Weapons of Mass Destruction Toolset (IWMDT). The thin-interface, web-based, image-server visualization model will enable more informed decisions by the consequence as ...

  5. Improved Mixed-Mode Simulation Tools for Radiation Hardening of Nanoscale Semiconductor Integrated Circuits

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA05001

    Strategic DoD satellite and missile systems (Space Based Radar, Space Tracking Surveillance Systems) operate in harsh radiation environments, and will be increasingly based on novel sub-100-nm semiconductor technologies and highly complex circuits. To ensure interruption-free operation, accurate prediction of the radiation response of these technologies and circuits is critical. Predictive calcula ...

  6. Improved High-Fidelity Forecasting Capability using Combined Mesoscale and Microscale Models

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA04002

    We propose to improve the accuracy and capability of Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion (ATD) models by performing a tight, downscale/upscale coupling of a community NWP forecasting system, WRF, with a special purpose, urban-to-microscale Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model. This new capability addresses “bridging the gap” between the mesoscale and ...

  7. Calibration and Use of Site-Specific Urban Weather Observations Data using Microscale Modeling

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA06001

    We propose to develop a capability to correct and calibrate intra-urban sited meteorological stations data for subsequent use by NWP, ATD and force protection models. This new capability will provide a number of related innovations, including: a standalone software capability to assist in the siting of meteorological stations in urban areas; the development of sensor-centralized vertical profiles ...

  8. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  9. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

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

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...
