  1. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  2. Monitoring Active Region Development of the Far-Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841W

    Solar active regions have a major impact on space weather. Knowledge of active regions in the Sun’s far hemisphere can improve forecasts of impending solar storms and future UV irradiance variations that negatively impact spacecraft, communications, and navigation facilities, thus making knowledge of active region locations and strengths of great benefit to society. We will use algorithms based ...

  3. Novel Method for Ground-based GNSS Radio Occultation Measurement

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 861X

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to redesign our existing Enhanced Tropospheric Effects Compensation ground-based radio occultation (RO) measurement system, which was developed, prototyped, and demonstrated under previous SBIR contracts, for the purpose of optimizing cost and performance. Assimilation of space-based RO measurements into numerical weather models is a proven met ...

  5. Geospatial Database for Storm Risk Assessment

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 841D

    In Phase I, Riverside investigated the need for increased access to NCDC storm data using web Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect severe weather and socioeconomic information. The focus of Phase I was to design and validate an architecture that specifies the methods through which the NCDC Storm data can be programmatically accessed, processed, and displayed in easy to use interfac ...

  6. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...

  7. Reducing Impact of Severe Space Weather on Global Positioning System (GPS) Satellite Users

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 844W

    In Phase II, Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to complete the development of a real-time nowcast of ionospheric scintillation impacts on GPS users. Continuing its partnership with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, PRA will implement real-time production of a map of ionospheric scintillation parameters over the United States using real-time data streamed from the National Geo ...

  8. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  9. Responsive Sequestration Coating

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: CBD13101

    TDA Research, Inc. and the University of Colorado at Boulder will team together to develop a responsive sequestration coating for chemical warfare agents. The coating will be easily applied to surfaces where it will cover and contain chemical warfare agents on vehicles or other hardware known or suspected to be contaminated. A color change of the coating will indicate locations of underlying surf ...

  10. ARCH Technology for a Simple, Resilient, and Cost-Effective Auto- Injector

    SBC: AKTIVAX, INC.            Topic: CBD13106

    A prefilled auto-injector device for storing a beneficial agent in a dry and stable format alongside a diluent, and automatically delivering the beneficial agent to a patient after reconstitution. The device comprises an automatic needle insertion mechanism and automatic needle retraction mechanism and is safe and disabled after use. The primary drug container of the auto-injector is made from ...
