  2. Comprehensive Glycoproteomic Tool Development for Cancer Biomarkers

    SBC: Protein Metrics Inc.            Topic: 300

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant This project addresses the need for better methods for deciphering the glycosylation of proteins in clinical samples Glycosylation is an important modifier of protein structure and function and contributes to disease processes But we currently know little about the glycosylation of most proteins The current methods for probing glycans on proteins are not su ...

  3. Quantum-Entanglement Based QKD Security Guarantee Over QoS-Driven 3-D Satellite Networks

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT15

    ABSTRACT: The proposed effort builds upon previous results obtained independently by the Optical Sciences Company and in collaboration with the DARPA InPho Program and other AFRL activities to develop a quantum communication system between ground links and a constellation of satellites. To address the losses in the link an advanced adaptive optics system is used to provide a robust classical cha ...

  4. Prediction of Remaining Useful Life of Rotorcraft Structures with a Fiber-Optic-Based Sensing System and a Unified Damage Mechanism-Based Model

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: N14AT002

    IFOS proposes to develop a fiber-optic-based sensing system and a unified damage mechanism model utilizing an integrated fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system for prediction of remaining useful life of rotorcraft structures. The proposed new rotorcraft damage modeling technique makes it possible to incorporate temperature and acoustic emission (AE) measurements with load tracking techniques for ...

  5. Design Optimization and Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Systems

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N14AT005

    Cascade Technologies and its collaborators from the Florida State University and Stanford University propose to develop a robust computational framework to enable geometrical optimization of complex non-axisymmetric exhaust systems with controlled accuracy and low computational cost. In this framework, Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) surrogates will be constructed based on extensive databas ...

  6. Technologies for the Suppression of Combustion Instability or Screech

    SBC: Peschel, William P            Topic: N14AT004

    Conduct comprehensive experimental tests using an existing microwave generated plasma igniter (M/W Igniter) that provides a continuously stabilized heat release source to suppress augmentor combustion instability or screech and to reduce the lean blowout (LBO) and light-off (LO) limits in modern/advanced or legacy augmentor flameholders. The test flow environments will include known combustion tes ...

  7. Local Carrier-Based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N14AT009

    Toyon Research Corporation, together with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), propose to develop a Local Carrier-based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS) that provides a full navigation solution (3-D position and altitude) for platforms within range of an aircraft carrier equipped with at least one beacon. Preliminary analysis indicates that the system will achieve 10- ...

  8. Foveated Video Object Detection

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. On the other hand, object detection continues to be one of the hot areas of computer vision, and it attests both to the fundamental importance of the problem and the fact that existing state-of-the-art algorithms are still shy of performing well in practice. We propose to utilizes human vision modeling of a fovea ...

  9. RAP as a therapeutic for regeneration of the optic nerve after insult

    SBC: Novoron Bioscience Inc.            Topic: N

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Like all neurons of the central nervous system CNS retinal ganglion cells fail to regenerate and often die after damage to the optic nerve such as occurs in optic nerve stroke or other optic neuropathies Loss of axonal connectivity and neuronal death that occurs after damage to the optic nerve results in vision loss While therapeutics targeting secondary ...

  10. Quantum-Entanglement Based QKD Security Guarantee Over QoS-Driven 3-D Satellite Networks

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT15

    ABSTRACT: The secure transmission of digital information is of extreme importance for military and commercial applications. The need for protecting information from hostile eavesdroppers has motivated the search for novel security schemes. This EPR-based Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) approach promises to provide a final solution to the problem by insuring ultimate security based upon the laws o ...
