  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 120-X-2 Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric & Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensing

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 84

    To capture critical weather and SST data in the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer (TCBL), Piasecki Aircraft proposes to evaluate existing meteorological sensor packages, integrate new off-the-shelf MEMS sensors, and design an air-launched UAS to improve the resolution of observations captured in the TCBL. Capturing latent and sensible heat fluxes can be achieved reliably with a powered UAS (compare ...

  5. Highly Efficient, Compact Hydrogen Generator for use in Marine Diesel Engines

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14004

    The proposed study will investigate several technology concepts capable of producing hydrogen on site from water and supplying it to an operating marine diesel engine. Addition of a small amount of hydrogen to the intake air-fuel charge can enable the engine to operate with better performance, efficiency, and with fewer harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The concepts being considered will be thorou ...

  6. Cognitive Residential Heat Pump Fault Detection and Diagnostic Datalogger

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 9010173R

    Millions of heat pumps are used to heat and cool homes and buildings year round. Continuous operation means that components wear out at a greater rate. As a result, maintenance of residential heat pumps is a major cost driver. Current methods focus on reduced use through control settings. Typically, demand has wide swings throughout the day and people are unable to customize controls. Inevitably, ...

  7. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...
