  1. Bioinformatic Based Wearable Critical Care Monitor


    The objective of this Phase I application is the focused development of an advanced bioinformatic based wearable critical care monitor to enhance warfighter medical care. This will be accomplished by building upon an existing advanced sensor, hardware and software platform developed by BodyMedia Advanced Development combined with additional computational and clinical expertise provided by Virgini ...

  2. Micro-burner Based Flame Ionization Detectors for Micro-scale Gas Chromatographs

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: A08T014

    Micro-Gas Chromatographs (micro-GC) have the potential of providing a fieldable device that could 1) identify chemical threats in a battlefield, 2) provide assessment of warfighter health status, chemical exposure, stress level, and hydration, but we need better detectors if this potential is to become a reality. The objective of the proposed work to develop a micro-flame ionization detector (mi ...

  3. Self-Healing Adhesives and Composites for Aerospace Systems

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T025

    Self-healing composites and adhesives would alleviate longstanding problems in aerospace structures associated with multiple types of damage mechanisms such as mechanical/thermal fatigue, microcracking, and debonding. For example, a self-healing composite cryogenic tank would prevent leakage by sealing microcracks throughout the lifetime of the tank and enable the use of composites in this critica ...

  4. Electrostatic atomizing fuel injector for small scale engines

    SBC: Enabling Energy Systems            Topic: A08T012

    The goal of this proposal is to develop a fuel injection system for direct-injection, spark-ignition, small engines that provides tunable atomization and good fuel-air mixture with low power consumption, low weight penalty, and small space footprint. The proposed method injects electric charge into an electrically insulating liquid, such as JP-8, within a specific atomizer design. The primary atom ...

  5. Nanostructures for Dislocation Blocking in Infrare

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A07T006

    Current state of the art LWIR and VLWIR focal plane arrays are typically fabricated with HgCdTe epilayers grown on expensive and limited-size CdZnTe substrates. The transition to silicon-based substrates, which are much cheaper and available in large sizes, has been hindered by high dislocation densities in HgCdTe epilayers resulting from lattice mismatch-induced strain. We propose the novel appro ...

  6. Ultra-Low-Noise Infrared Detector Amplifier for Next Generation Standoff Detector

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08T017

    An ultra-low noise integrated circuit for mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) infrared detectors is proposed. Noise reduction techniques such as active noise cancellation are commercially successful and have been implemented using silicon-based integrated circuits to reduce background and externally-induced noise. While silicon dominates infrared sensor readout electronics, silicon-based circuits h ...

  7. Super Hardened, EMI and Vibration Immune Chemical Biological Sensor

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08T027

    To satisfy Joint Services needs for the detection and identification of chemical and biological agents, infrared detectors must discriminate within a narrow spectral band tunable over large portions of the infrared spectrum. Currently, large, complex, power hungry and computationally intensive FTIR systems are used for this purpose. We propose here the integration of HgCdTe infrared emitter and de ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Fiber nonlinearity based entangled-photon sources

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A07T020

    Entangled photons have special properties arising from their quantum nature and have been used for scientific purposes such as demonstrating quantum teleportation. Several fascinating applications for entangled photons have been proposed including quantum metrology, computation, communication, and key generation. However, generating entangled light is currently an experiment in itself, thereby ham ...
