  1. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  2. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  3. High Speed Missile to Missile Communications

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: MDA17001

    Indiana Microelectronics is proposing an alternative design for a high-speed missile to missile radio frequency communications link. The concept is to implement a reconfigurable, full duplex, software defined Ku band transceiver to allow for faster data throughput and better interference mitigation than existing downlinks. The system would be designed to operate at a higher frequency than the exis ...

  4. Advanced Digital Solid Propellant Thruster Array for Highly Maneuverable Vehicles

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA17008

    With adversaries continuing to advance ballistic missile technologies, the next generation of missile interceptors must increase their capabilities to provide an effective defense. IN Space proposes the development of a digital solid propellant thruster array based on a high strength, high performance composite solid propellant with an unmatched burning rate in order to achieve a responsive, high ...

  5. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project will evaluate the feasibility of an innovative optical sizer for estimating drop sizes in sprays that have very small drops. The technique is based on the NIST provisional patent (application number 62/358,264). The NIST invention sorts particles by size over the range of 10nm to 10μm. Drop sizing is achieved in these sprays using an intense ...

  6. Variable Gravity Two-Phase Heat Sink for Airborne Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: MUDAWAR THERMAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA14016

    The proposed study concerns the development of a robust two-phase cooling module for airborne directed energy systems. There are five overriding objectives for the proposed Phase I study: (1) cooling module design, fabrication and instrumentation; (2) two-phase cooling loop development; (3) thermal tests; (4) theoretical model of cooling performance as a function of velocity and surface orientati ...

  7. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...

  8. Vapor Containment and Fire Suppression System for Hypergolic Propellants

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA08046

    Toxicity and fire risks associated with monomethylhydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide must be mitigated for the continued fielding of divert and attitude control systems for MDA interceptors. In a Phase I study, IN Space, Ansul and Purdue University characterized a system allowing for simple retrofitting of propulsion systems already designed for the hypergols of interest. With the proposed Vapor C ...

  9. Tin Whisker Mitigation Technologies for Sn-based Surface Finishes on Electronic Assemblies and Microelectronic Devices

    SBC: Foresite, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T010

    The impact of metal whiskers on the reliability of electronics has been exacerbated by environmentally-driven efforts to eliminate lead from tin plating and solders. Even exempt applications, such as military, are affected due to COTS. Foresite, Inc., a consultant, laboratory and test equipment development company, has a goal for the subject research, in collaboration with Purdue University, to ...

  10. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: N/A

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging data needs to be calibrated using a universal standard. NIST and the ISMRM SQRM committee have developed the NIST/NIST MR phantom. The group had two phantoms manufactured to their specifications and these phantoms have been imaged at numerous imaging facilities. Sigma-K now proposes to develop a complete manufacturing method that will produce 50 MRI phantoms. These phant ...
