  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  8. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    A new class of high-performance, low-SWaP computational devices is emerging based on increasingly diverse architectures. This diversity is improving performance, but comes at the cost of increased programming complexity. Each architecture requires variances in programming environment and model, typically distinguished by the type of parallelism supported by the hardware, limiting software portabil ...
