  1. Design of Flexible Materials for Aerodynamic Structures

    SBC: Hall, Claudia Maldonado            Topic: AF19BT001

    The PI has worked on a design concept for a wind turbine blade with adaptive twist transformation. The design improves wind capture and reduces loading on the system drivetrain turbine by adapting the twist distribution in relation to wind speed. Structural adaptability is enabled by actuating a series of compliant segments that are mounted on a relatively rigid spar. The segments are assumed to h ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  4. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need (RAPID)

    SBC: Trek10 Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    Legacy Air Force IT systems behind the Operational Training Infrastructure (OTI) are inhibiting warfighter readiness due to lack of interoperability and flexibility, high costs, and need for manual processes. Next generation cloud computing that focuses on cloud-native, serverless designs will enable the Air Force to embrace agility, security, scalability, and lower costs to modernize the OTI.Trek ...

  5. ENHANCEEnabling Hybrid Anodes with Nano-Carbon Electrodes

    SBC: Cellec Technologies Inc            Topic: AF19AT014

    The objective of this research program is to develop an ultra-lightweight carbon nanotube-lithium metal (CNT-Li) hybrid anode to enable high energy density lithium ion cells. These CNT-Li anodes will be paired with carbon nanotube enhanced high areal loading (mAh/cm2) cathodes to achieve cell-level energy densities that exceed 400 Wh/kg at the cell-level and have the potential to exceed 500 Wh/kg. ...

  6. Space-Based Computational Hyperspectral Machine Vision using Compressed Sensing Neural Networks

    SBC: KENT OPTRONICS INC            Topic: AF19AT015

    In this STTR Phase I proposal, Kent Optronics (KOI) together with its partner, Rice University, propose to develop novel deep learning algorithms to perform machine vision tasks such as target recognition and tracking utilizing the direct measurements from a compressive hyperspectral imaging system. By skipping the hypercube reconstruction, this combination of hardware and software will allow real ...

  8. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: Stonewall Defense, LLC            Topic: AF183005

    The Air Force is interested in leveraging commercial technology with dual-purpose Air Force solutions. Stonewall Defense proposes its scrap metal container tracker as one of these technologies. In response to pervasive theft of collection containers in the metal scrap industry, Stonewall Defense developed a system to track these containers. This system is comprised of an Internet of Things (IoT) b ...
