  1. Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic Electrolytes

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09AT011

    Interest in lithium metal-air batteries has been growing in recent years, along with the demand for lighter power sources for devices ranging from plug-in hybrid vehicles to laptops. In lithium-ion batteries, the electrodes are made of materials such as graphite, while in a lithium-metal battery, the anode is made up entirely of lithium metal, and the surrounding air can act as the cathode. Lithi ...

  2. A System to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AFFECT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT006

    Modern military and security scenarios increasingly demand rapid evaluation of human affective states, accurately detecting stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fatigue (SAUF) to assess warfighter effectiveness or to advance security screening and interrogation objectives. In our Phase I effort, we designed and demonstrated a system to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AF ...

  3. Snapshot Raman Spectral Imager

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A09AT009

    Applied Quantum Technologies proposes the development of a snapshot Raman spectral imager for chemical imaging applications with a 1-5 meter standoff. Standoff chemical imaging methods are typically point-based, making scan times impractical for situations where a wide area needs to be surveyed. The high spectral resolution needed to take advantage of the specificity of Raman spectroscopy limits t ...

  4. Surgical Cockpit-- Multisensory/Multimodal Interfaces for Robotic Surgery

    SBC: SPI Surgical, Inc            Topic: A09AT028

    The ongoing military conflicts demonstrate the need to deploy skilled personnel equipped with advanced technology to provide medical and surgical attention as close as possible to the point of injury. A major problem is the occasional mismatch between the type of injury and the type of surgeon available to treat it. Telerobotic surgery is a means to mediate the narrow spectrum of available front l ...

  5. Non-invasive assay to discriminate between mild-Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: A09AT025

    In response to the need, in forward areas, of assessing the likelihood of a mTBI having occurred, the objective of this project is the development of the CBIAS computerized assessment system that will be able to make this determination on the basis of the functioning of the II, III, IV, VI, and VIII cranial nerves. They provide the opportunity to obtain a sensitive and quantitative evaluation of t ...

  6. Simultaneous Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Thermometry (PIVT) in Reacting Flows.

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A09AT003

    In this Phase I STTR program, ORBITEC and University of Wisconsin-Madison teamed to develop a simultaneous particle image velocimetry and thermometry (PIV+T) diagnostic for reacting flows. In applications such as gas turbine engines, internal combustion engines, and rocket engines, the dynamics of the turbulent combustion necessitate measurement of both temperature and velocity fields to understa ...

  7. Automated Microscopic Malaria Diagnosis

    SBC: Diagnostic Vision Corporation            Topic: A08T036

    This SSTR research project will develop a computerized microscope based imaging system that will allow location and quantization of malarial parasites. The system will automatically scan a blood smear, locating the red cells and parasites. A digital image display will allow interaction with an operator to confirm or reject objects. In Phase II the initial effort to identify trophozoites will be ...

  8. Dynamically Tunable Metamaterials

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: A09AT002

    The technology, theory and fabrication of metamaterials have seen impressive progress in the last few years, and various applied fields have benefited from the flexibility of electromagnetic response that metamaterials provide at microwaves, infrared (IR) and/or optical frequencies. Negative-refractive and zero-permittivity metamaterials have been proposed for breakthrough novel applications in m ...

  9. Periodically Poled Materials for UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: A09AT008

    Army quantum information researchers have an immediate need for improved stable, narrowband violet and UV laser sources with 10100 mW output and 10 MHz10 GHz tuning. These sources are required for numerous ion and atom qubits functions including photoionization, Doppler cooling, state initialization, and detection. The cost and complexity of currently available UV lasers hampers current efforts ...

  10. Bacteriophage-based probiotic preparation for managing Shigella infections

    SBC: Intralytix, Inc.            Topic: A09AT012

    During the studies supported by our Phase I STTR grant from the US Army, we began developing and testing a novel concept for a probiotic preparation based on naturally occurring bacteriophages as a way to condition the GI tract"s microflora gently and favorably. The preparation (tentatively designated"ShigActive") is a bacteriophage cocktail that specifically targets Shigella spp. (significant ...
