  1. Development of a Fire-Resistant, Thermal Barrier Coating with Low-Temperature Flexibility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: A08T028

    Advanced Materials and Processes (AMP) can deliver a Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) with low temperature flexibility. This is possible because of a major breakthrough in hollow clay nanotube technology. Halloysite nanotubes (HNT™) have been shown to increase coating flexibility an order of magnitude by reinforcing the binder at the nanolevel. HNT have been filled with liquid flame retardant (F ...

  2. Ante-Mortem TSE Diagnosis by Electric Cell-Substrate Impedance Sensing

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08T035

    Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) are responsible for fatal neurodegenerative diseases in humans, cattle, and sheep/goats. As TSEs can take many months and even years to present clinical symptoms, it is critical for food and contact safety to diagnose the disease at the earliest possible time point. A cell culture based system can offer the sensitivity and specificity required for a ...

  3. Xenopus Melanophore-Based Toxicity Sensor for Water

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A07T030

    Deployed armed forces often have to rely on water that is produced from decentralized sources, which presents significant difficulties for assuring the water is free of chemical toxicants. Analysis of these water supplies often requires complex instrumentation that is not practical for field use. An innovative alternative is the use of cell-based biosensors that can rapidly assess the general toxi ...

  4. Cell-based High Throughput Screening of Compounds Improving Mitochondrial Energetics

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08T006

    Improving age-related decrease in cognitive and physical capabilities has tremendous potential for the civilian population and military personnel, including prolonged aptitude of highly-trained military personnel and lowering of healthcare costs. Mitochondria, the organelle responsible for energy production in eukaryotic cells, are directly involved in programmed cell death and associated to the ...

  6. Novel Biomarkers Assessment in the Progression from Androgen Dependent Prostate Cancer to Androgen Independent Prostate Cancer

    SBC: IMMUNOTOPE, INC.            Topic: A08T041

    Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in males. Treatment with androgen ablation therapy after radical prostatectomy (RP) eventually leads to relapse and development of androgen-independent disease. Patients with androgen independent prostate cancer experience high morbidity and morality. At present, the ability to monit ...

  7. Advanced Low Temperature Liquid Metal Anode Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A08T007

    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) offer significant benefits to the Army/DoD based on their high efficiencies, fuel versatility, quiet operation, and negligible emissions. Liquid tin anode solid oxide fuel cells (LTA-SOFCs) can operate directly on military logistics fuels (JP-8, JP-5, and diesel), even with high levels of impurities, thereby avoiding the requirement for an additional fuel reformer. ...

  8. Advanced Aerosolization of Metallic Powder Using a Low Temperature Sublimable Solid

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07T024

    This Phase II STTR ARMY project proposes the refinement and scale-up of advanced processes to mix solutions of low melting temperature sublimable solid eutectic materials with metal nanoflake powders and then solidify these slurries into a desired shape compact. The main project goals are to accomplish good metal nanoflake powder deagglomeration in the liquid eutectic phase, to attain good densifi ...

  9. Lightweight Fuel Cell Panel Utilizing High Temperature Ionic Polymer

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A08T010

    Ionic polymers are ionically conductive organic salts with excellent thermal and chemical stability, useful for their large specific capacitances across a wide operational temperature range. In this program, MER Corporation and Arizona State University propose the fuel cell use of electroactive solid state ionic polymers that conduct protons across an even wider temperature range from subzero to < ...

  10. Military Surgical Information System

    SBC: MOBERG RESEARCH INC            Topic: A07T038

    This Phase II project will develop a system for the perioperative management of head trauma patients that is compliant with the proposed Integrated Clinical Environment (ICE) standard. Device interoperability will be implemented using a microprocessor-based adapter that translates communication protocols of specific legacy medical devices into a standard protocol readable by an open-source API. T ...
