  1. Tuning Germanium Reflectivity and Mosaic

    SBC: AdSem, Inc.            Topic: 90108

    Mosaic crystalline monochromators define performance of neutron scattering devices employed in condensed matter research on research nuclear reactors. This project is devoted to development of a manufacturing technique for slow neutron Germanium mosaic monochromators with reflectivity exceeding reflectivity of pyrolytic graphite crystals. Germanium has small slow neutron absorption; its diamond cr ...

  2. Development of Genetics-based Selective Breeding Protocols for Improvement of the Mediterranean Mussel, Mytilus galloprovincialis, and Advancement of Aquaculture

    SBC: Catalina Sea Ranch            Topic: 811

    The aquaculture industry lags in genetically based selective breeding programs when compared to terrestrial commercial crops. This aggravates the United States’ (U.S.) $11 billion dollar seafood deficit, puts U.S. aquaculture entrepreneurs at an early disadvantage for success, and increases risk of bivalve crop degradation from climate change. Heterosis in bivalve crops, the phenomenon in which ...

  3. Developing Resilience to Ocean Acidification in Red Abalone Aquaculture

    SBC: Cultured Abalone Farm LLC, The            Topic: 811

    The pH of the global ocean is becoming more acidic as a consequence of oceanic absorption of increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations. This process, termed “ocean acidification” (OA), will likely affect the aquaculture of marine shellfish. Maintaining current levels of commercial mollusc production will require the identification and commercialization of resilient seedstock. Through Phase I r ...

  4. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera


    Methane is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas, whose atmospheric concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm and is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Thus, while the quantitative monitoring of methane levels is necessary, it is also critically important to directly identify the sources of the methane emissions, for example, in ice floes, leaks in pipelines, and also from drilling/f ...

  5. Rapid Lateral Flow Assay for Field Detection of Brevetoxins

    SBC: Epicentre Technologies Corporation            Topic: 812

    The bloom-forming algae Karenia brevis produces neurotoxins known as brevetoxins (PbTx) that can cause illness in humans and marine wildlife. During K. brevis blooms, also known as red tides, elevated levels of brevetoxins have been linked to massive bird, fish, and marine mammal kills. In addition, human consumption of brevetoxin contaminated shellfish leads to neurotoxic shellfish poisoning. The ...

  6. Secure UWB Toolkit for Enroute Combat Casualty Care Wireless Communication

    SBC: STARIX TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A14051

    Ultra-Wideband (UWB) possesses advantages in security (encryption, LPI/LPD, and jamming), connectivity (point-to-point, point-to-multipoint) and performance (data rates, user density, and simultaneous connections) that are ideal for Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) applications. In order to facilitate and accelerate the integration of Starixs UWB technology into existing and new products (phys ...

  7. Development of Tool to Assess the Impact of Off-shade/Specification Samples on Visual and Signature Performance Requirements

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: A14055

    The proposed program will demonstrate and deliver an ACU Visualization Toolkit, based on concepts developed by Surface Optics Corp under Army Phase I SBIR funding. The concept is an advanced optical hardware and graphics software system that can be used by U.S. Army Natick Soldier RD&E Center to simulate the in-combat appearance of patterned fabric used for Army Camouflage Uniforms (ACU). It will ...

  8. Sulfur Tolerant JP-8 Reformer

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A14076

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) developed and demonstrated an extremely compact Microlith based reformer for enabling effective and efficient SOFC operation with up to 3000 ppmw sulfur JP8 or diesel fuels. The reformer is based upon PCIs novel sulfur tolerant Microlith catalyst and reactor designs. In Phase I, potential system solutions for 10 kWe APU system were evaluated and water neutral desig ...

  9. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  10. Paint Additive/Non-Destructive Interrogation System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: A14003

    To address the Army need to detect the earliest formation of corrosion through paint, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) developed a new low-cost Paint Additive/Nondestructive Interrogation (PANDI) system. The paint additive increases paint transparency for IR light, which is emitted and measured by the corrosion sensor. The inorganic additive is fully compatible with current coating systems and do ...
