  2. Variable Position Mid-Wheel Drive System for Power Wheelchairs

    SBC: Criterion Health, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project designs, constructs, and evaluates a concept model based on current mid wheel designs. The concept model uses a variable position drive wheel system that can move forward or backward from the mid-wheel position using a simple mechanical system to change the position of the drive wheels. A series of five structured tests for maneuverability and/or stability are used to compare performa ...

  3. High-Speed Resonant FTIR Spectrometer for Surface Contaminant Measurements

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: CBD09107

    OPTRA proposes the development of a high speed resonant Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer for surface contaminant detection via thermal luminescence. The system will generate 10,000 spectra per second over the 7-14 m spectral range at 8 cm-1 spectral resolution; the NESR is projected at 4×10-9 W/(cm2•ster•cm-1) over a 100 s integration time. The key to the system is a res ...

  4. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD08104

    Spectral Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a sensor for real-time trace-level analysis of complex multicomponent gas mixtures containing Chemical Weapon (CW) agents and interferents. The approach is based on the combination of a digitally controlled widely tunable quantum cascade laser source and an advanced photoacoustic signal transducer. In Phase I, Spectral Sciences Inc. has demonstrated the ...

  5. Switchable Surfaces for Vapor Stream Concentration(1001-344)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD09106

    Trace detection usually requires a vapor concentrator that collects dilute analytes from a vapor sample and delivers them at a higher concentration to the detector. Conventional vapor concentrators tend to use either cryogenics, where vapors are concentrated on a cooled surface and then desorbed via flash heating, or sorbent technology, such as zeolites, where vapors are absorbed before flash-hea ...

  6. OPEN

    SBC: One Planet Education Network (OPEN) LLC            Topic: N/A

    Virtual worlds are an emerging form of technology where users can take the form of an avatar and move around within a simulated environment. Such worlds may have potential in the field of education to provide students with new learning opportunities by affording participation in tasks that often would not be possible in the real world due to constraints and restrictions, such as cost, scheduling, ...

  7. Advanced LWIR Hyperspectral System for On-the-Move Standoff Detection of Liquid and Solid Contaminants on Surfaces

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD12104

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize an innovative LWIR hyperspectral technology coupled with advanced data processing algorithms for non-contact, standoff detection of liquid/solid contaminants on surfaces. The technology will address the US Army"s need for fast, on-the-move, non-contact detection of ground contamination during reconnaissance missions. The Phase I effort demonstrated ...

  8. Enhancing the Pharmacokinetic Profile of Protein-based Drugs

    SBC: Extend Biosciences Inc.            Topic: CBD12101

    Many protein-based drugs have limited efficacy due to a short half-life or require intravenous delivery because of low bioavailability. Extend Biosciences is developing proprietary carrier molecules that allow proteins to access an intrinsic transport pathway for efficient delivery to the vascular space and then maintain a sustained presence in circulation. This novel technology would be of partic ...

  9. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 91

    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  10. 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 ...
