  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Thomas J. Smith LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Current PTSD treatment is ineffective, expensive, complicated, and essentially nonexistent. A harmful stigma exists behind mental health diagnosis and treatment in the military. This stigma is a direct cause of the 20 veterans a day committing suicide. This epidemic shows that mental health treatment in the military is out of date and ineffective, proving the need for new, effective, and streamlin ...

  2. Stretchable Wireless Power Systems

    SBC: BRHMS LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Critical care patients including trauma patients and post-operative patients are exposed to significant risk during aeromedical evacuation and transport. Physically wired patient monitoring items via rotary-wing aircraft, differing electrical power requirements, and non-availability of adequate power supply can impede device availability and severely risk en-route care. The proposed solution ident ...

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Cerium Laboratories, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Cerium Labs has developed a miniature, highly sensitive, semiconductor device called the Neutron Intercepting Semiconductor Chip (NISC, US Patent 6,075,261) to advance neutron detection technology for national defense. This device is essentially a flash memory chip with a 10B-enriched borophosphosilicate glass (BPSG) layer. The well-known n-10B reaction creates 4He and 7Li particles which deplete ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Nanoionics Enabled Proton Exchange Membranes

    SBC: Celadyne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Nanocomposites made from a mixture of nanocrystals and polymer can be used to draw forth nanoionics attributes in materials with a high density of internal interfaces. This approach, when applied to proton transport materials, can enable fabrication of new proton exchange membranes that are critical for energy storage and conversion devices such as fuel cells, electrolyzers, and redox flow batteri ...

  7. Compressed Sensing Fourier Transform Spectroscopy based on Integrated Plasmonic Circuitry on VCSEL Platform

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Optical spectroscopy is an indispensable tool in numerous areas including optical communication, sensing, material analysis, environmental and medical applications. The advance at on-chip spectrometer empowers compact, low-cost spectroscopy operating for the portable sensing and enhancement of lab-on-a-chip. Since the optical path length limits the spectral resolution, particularly high-performanc ...

  8. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  9. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  10. 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 ...
