  1. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  2. Characterization of Piezoelectric Fibers for Sensing Shock Waves from Underwater Explosions

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: DHA17C002

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of using piezoelectric fibers to detect shock waves from underwater explosions (UNDEX) and sensing physiological measures such as heart and respiratory rates on warfighters. Piezoelectric fibers will be characterized for their ability so sense different amplitudes and frequencies of shock and vibration. ...

  3. A Novel Peptide-based Topical Therapeutic to Promote Corneal Regeneration and Restore Corneal Biomechanics Following Blast and Burn Injuries

    SBC: FirstString Research, Inc            Topic: A15061

    Ocular traumas resulting from explosive or incendiary devices are common battlefield injuries. Current therapeutics do not address the biological and molecular processes in corneal wound healing, and therapeutic failure is associated with corneal ulcers,

  4. Fail-Safe, Controllable Liquid Spring/Damper System for Improved Rover Space Vehicle Mobility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: H601

    NASA is planning to return to the moon in 2020 to explore thousands of miles of the moon?s surface with individual missions, lasting six months or longer. Surface mobility is critical to outpost buildup and exploration activities, where the change in the vehicle weight between unloaded and loaded cargo conditions and travel over rough terrain can adversely affect the ride handling conditions and ...

  5. Optimal Rewarming Solutions for Cryopreserved Tissue Systems: Rapid rewarming reduction of cryoprotectant toxicity and concentration employing magnetic nanoparticles.

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15014

    Vitrification, cryopreserved storage in a glassy rather than crystalline phase, is an important enabling approach for tissue banking and regenerative medicine, offering the ability to store and transport cells, tissues and organs for a variety of biomedical uses without the risks of damaging ice formation. Unfortunately, practical application of vitrification has been limited to reproductive cells ...

  6. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  7. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...

  8. Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) Fueled Pulsed Plasma Thruster

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing the development of a new liquid Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) using its revolutionary HAN-based Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) to enable spacecraft missions whose fulfillment requires the high specific impulse of conventional Telfon-fueled PPTs, but would like the flexibility in mission design that liquid fueled systems allow. DSSP's GEM propellant i ...

  9. Rapid Rewarming Reduction of Cryoprotectant Toxicity and Concentration Employing Magnetic Nanoparticles

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15014

    We will evaluate a novel warming method, developed by our collaborator John Bischof, that promises solution of one of the remaining barriers for banking of large organs and vascularized composite tissues. The method involves radiofrequency and magnetic nanoparticles to obtain rapid uniform electromagnetic rewarming of biological materials instead of warming from the outer boundary using convection ...

  10. Lateral Flow Immunoassay for Rapid Detection of Borrelia burgdorferi from Ticks

    SBC: DxDiscovery Incorporated            Topic: DHP15006

    Lyme disease is a vector-borne illness caused by infection with B. burgdorferi. Hard ticks (Ixodes spp.) acquire the spirochete from a natural reservoir of small mammals; transmission to humans occurs via the bite of an infected tick. By any measure, Lyme disease is one of the most serious emerging infectious diseases that threaten public health in the United States. New estimates from the CDC ind ...
