  1. Many-Core Acceleration of Common Graph Programming Frameworks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB152004

    Graph analytics is a key component in identifying emerging trends and threats in many real-world applications. Large-scale graph analytics frameworks provide a convenient and highly scalable platform for developing algorithms to analyze large datasets. Although conceptually scalable, these techniques exhibit poor performance on modern computational hardware. Another model of graph computation has ...

  2. Next-generation cell-free prototyping and biomanufacturing platform

    SBC: BIODISCOVERY LLC            Topic: SB152001

    Cell-free expression systems are becoming robust platforms to reduce system complexity, to use toxic and non-naturally occurring compounds or to produce metabolic intermediates, proteins and molecules that are otherwise toxic to cells. Unfortunately, current cell-free expression platforms are often inconsistent, low scale, not flexible, poorly characterized and limited to relatively simple biologi ...

  3. Advanced Non-Destructive System to Characterize Subsurface Residual Stresses in Turbo-machinery Components

    SBC: Proto Manufacturing Inc            Topic: N152091

    Manufacturers of aerospace propulsion systems are well aware of the positive effects of compressive residual stress (RS) fields on turbo-machinery components in terms of improved fatigue life and durability. Tensile RS, however, can cause unfavorable conditions which may lead to premature failure during operational usage. Thus, the industry objective is to capitalize on compressive RS and prevent ...

  4. Broadband Self-calibrated Rydberg-based RF Electric Field and Power Sensor

    SBC: Rydberg Technologies LLC            Topic: SB152003

    Initial research and development towards a self-calibrated Rydberg-atom-based electric-field and power sensor for microwave and THz radiation is conducted. The sensor operates on atomic-physics and quantum-optics principles, especially electromagnetically induced transparency. Infrared and visual solid-state laser systems are employed to measure the energy levels of Rydberg atoms in room-temperatu ...

  5. Ovenized Inertial Micro Electro Mechanical Systems

    SBC: EPACK, INC.            Topic: SB152005

    Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) inertial (motion) sensors are now used for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications, but cant be used for many precision navigation applications because of their inaccuracy. In particular, the measurement (bias) stability of MEMS gyroscopes generally have temperature sensitivities of 10-100 degrees/hour/degree Celsius. This mean that even with smal ...

  6. Ovenized Inertial Micro-Sensors

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: SB152005

    This proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of ovenized inertial MEMS sensors (OI-MEMS) to achieve the tactical performance requirements of MEMS inertial measurement units (IMUs), in particular bias and scale factor stability for military, aerospace and high-end industrial and commercial markets. The primary outcome of the proposed effort is a 6-axis OI-MEMS IMU fabricated with a b ...

  8. Temporary Crack Repairs for Aluminum Structures on Surface Ships

    SBC: GOUGEON BROTHERS, INC.            Topic: N151052

    Gougeon Brothers Inc. is submitting a proposal to address the need for a temporary repair procedure for 5xxx series aluminum U.S. Navy ship structures that have stress corrosion cracking issues. The proposal explains how an innovative toughened thixotropic epoxy adhesive can be used to wet out reinforcing fabrics to a surface with simple surface preparation. This concept takes advantage of the wor ...

  9. Best Value Suspension System

    SBC: LOC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N151003

    The Marine Corps desires a highly mobile amphibious vehicle that operates in harsh conditions on land and in ocean waters. The existing Amphibious Assault Vehicles suspension system limits sea mobility to around 8 knots, three times slower than that desired by the Marine Corps. Loc Performance Products, Inc. (Loc) proposes to develop its Best Value Suspension System (BVSS) with its partner Oneiric ...
