  1. Protein Qspec: An Improved Method for Rapid Characterization of Protein Aggregates in Biologic Drugs for Increased Quality and Safety

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: 90201

    Optofluidics will develop Protein Qspec, a new particle analysis QC instrument designed to characterize protein aggregates in biologic drugs. The primary concern for this class of therapeutics is that they can elicit an immune response from patients who develop anti-drug antibodies which can eliminate the therapeutic benefit. The presence of particulate matter, in these therapeutics (e.g. shed gla ...

  2. High Dynamic Range Atomic Magnetic Gradiometer

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SB161005

    This SBIR Phase I proposal will investigate a method for measuring magnetic gradients using a pair of cesium vapor cells. The approach involves measuring free-induction decay of atomic polarization based on a method patented by the proposers. By measuring decays in two spatially separate cells, a signal can be extracted which is largely free of magnetic noise from the ambient environment. This sho ...

  3. Transparent Tapered Resistive Elements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SOCOM16004

    A robust system level design process will be used to identify the design of transparent tapered resistive (TTR) elements, including the materials, fabrication processes, and lifecycle costs. The transparent tapered resistive film will be designed to provides a tapered resistive layer across the film while remaining transparent in the visual and near-infrared optical bands for use in radio-frequenc ...

  4. High-Sample-Rate Analog-to-Digital Converters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SB153004

    Thanks to the availability of downscaled CMOS devices, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) implemented in these faster CMOS technologies have achieved increasingly efficient conversion rates in the GS/s range. However, given the reduced linear dynamic range, these scaled CMOS technology nodes require extensive calibration to compensate for transistor mismatch and threshold-level variations. This n ...

  5. Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: VIBRANT CORPORATION            Topic: DLA15C001

    Vibrant Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) propose to apply Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) to the DLA's need for an NDI method to detect counterfeit, nonconforming and improperly processed materiel. PCRT collects and analyzes the resonance frequencies of a component to detect structural defects, characterize material, analyze population variation, monitor manufacturin ...

  6. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    Modern computer systems often incorporate multiple computational devices such as conventional processors, graphics processing units (GPUs), specialized accelerators, and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Programmers are able to exploit these new architectures for improved performance and reduced power consumption, but at the cost of increased programing complexity. Further complicating matte ...

  7. Reconfigurable Conformal Imaging Sensor (RCIS)

    SBC: ChemImage Corporation            Topic: SB152006

    A reconfigurable, small form factor, cost effective, infrared hyperspectral imaging system capable of operating in real-time is required for a broad array of missions to detect a variety of threats under dynamic operating conditions. The solution is the Reconfigurable Conformal Imaging Sensor (RCIS). RCIS is a high frame rate, multivariate hyperspectral imaging tool for use in dynamic threat envir ...

  8. Compact, Configurable, Real-Time Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging System

    SBC: ChemImage Corporation            Topic: SB152006

    During Phase I, CISS developed a sensor design for a novel compressive sensing hyperspectral imaging technology called the Reconfigurable Conformal Imaging Sensor (RCIS). RCIS is composed of a CISS-patented HSI spectrometer, the conformal filter (CF), which enables real-time multivariate hyperspectral imaging when combined with CISS dual polarization (DP) technology. RCIS will function in the shor ...
