  1. Field Assessment of Materials for Use in Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: IllinoisRocstar LLC and Purdue University propose a framework that enables field assessment of particle size and shape for use in ultra-high performance concrete. We will implement portable scanning approaches for particle size measurement and combine this with high performance computer modeling to optimize altering particle size proportions. Critically, the framework will be implemente ...

  3. Adaptive multi-sensor wide area situational awareness system

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: AF12BT14

    ABSTRACT: Confronted by a vast quantity of data, presented piecemeal, sporadically and at varying levels of detail, the human analyst is often overwhelmed when trying to effectively monitor even medium-sized areas of interest. Offline, there is a wealth of data, resolution, and time to pick through and find activities of interest. Given a large amount of high resolution data, we can simulate situ ...

  5. High Speed Room Temperature Single Photon Counters

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A11aT008

    Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as quantum communications, laser ranging, and biological spectroscopy. Avalanche photodiode based single-photon detectors are convenient solid-state devices that do not require cryogenic cooling. We will build avalanche photodiode based si ...

  6. New Rare Earth Free High Performance Permanent Magnets with High Energy Product and Mechanical Strength

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    Recently, the availability of the high performance rare earth based magnets (Nd-Fe-B and Sm-Co) was jeopardized due to the Chinese monopoly of rare earth production, which undermines our national security and competitiveness in the defense and clean energy sectors and creates a strategic vulnerability for the United States. This STTR proposal aims at developing the next generation of rare earth f ...

  7. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This Phase I program is focused on enhancement of the performance of MgZnO based solar blind detectors. MgZnO alloys have superior optoelectronic properties with bandgaps suitable for solar blind detection. Issues related to doping and miscibility will be addressed. This will involve the use of advanced MOCVD and MBE growth techniques and consideration of both Schottky and p-n junction devices. No ...

  8. Modified Nanoparticles for Lipophilic Toxin Sequestration

    SBC: AuraSense, LLC            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are toxic secondary metabolites of molds and fungi, many of which are pathogenic to humans. In general, mycotoxins enter the body through the skin, digestive tract, or through respiration. Exposure to a few milligrams can be lethal. Mycotoxins have a high likelihood of being weaponized, due to their ease of large scale production. One possible way to counteract the effec ...

  9. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor has been shown to be an effective element as the core of a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The response of the computing circuit is the result of weighted external stimuli, the current state of the device, and the history of exposure by the device to the stimuli. A highly specialized version of the device, as developed by the Advanc ...

  10. Development of a Recombinant Vaccine Against Streptococcus Pyogenes Infection and Disease

    SBC: VAXFORM, LLC            Topic: A12aT027

    A vaccine to protect against diseases resulting from infection with Streptococcus pyogenes is under development. This vaccine utilizes a recombinant fusion protein (SpeAB) comprising of genetically detoxified SpeA, a secreted toxin, and SpeB, a surface bound and secreted cysteine protease. During phase I investigations a lead vaccine formulation was determined by optimization of critical paramet ...
