  1. In Situ Near Real-time Detection of RDX in Soil(1000-908)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06T025

    Triton Systems, Inc., with Prof Aleksandr Simonian of Auburn University proposes to develop an in-situ, on-site, near real time response detector of explosive particles in large areas of soil for the BRAC program. The explosive detector is designed to withstand the environmental factors such as pH, temperature, soil moisture, and salinity changes of soil. The device detects ultra-low concentration ...

  2. Microbial Detectors of Explosives

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A06T025

    The presence of residual explosive materials in areas previously used as ranges by the US military presents a significant safety and environmental health hazard. Current methods of detecting explosives in soils require extensive soil and/or water sampling and analysis using portable laboratories. These impose significant cost and time burdens during the site remediation process. In this Phase I ...

  3. Near-infrared Diffuse Optical Imaging for Noninvasive Monitoring of Cortical Spreading Depression

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A06T028

    Cortical spreading depression (CSD) is a region of transient electrical and metabolic failure that propagates through peri-lesional brain tissue. Although characteristics of CSD have been shown to be relevant to injury outcome, subdural electrode measurements currently in use restrict monitoring only to patients requiring craniotomy. A portable, noninvasive monitoring device applicable to all pa ...

  4. Deployable Intracranial Sensor Array

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A06T028

    Cortical Spreading Depression (CSD) as a secondary phenomenon to traumatic head injury can herald further brain tissue damage well after the initial injury. The only way to reliably record CSD is through direct electrode contact with the brain. With modern equipment this requires that the skull and dura be removed, which is only feasible in a small number of patients. Infoscitex and our partner ...

  5. Online Treatment of Subretinal Neovascular Membranes from Laser Eye Injury

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A06T030

    Subretinal neovascular membranes (SRNM) are a deleterious complication of laser eye injury and retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, choroiditis, and myopic retinopathy. The membranes are difficult to treat with conventional photocoagulation because they form near the fovea directly below sensitive photoreceptors. Photodynamic therapy is a promising treatment that acts by sele ...

  6. Real Time Parallel Channel Spectrometer for 3D Cloud Profiling

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: A06T023

    OPTRA is proposing the development of a 3D cloud profiling system that combines an innovative Imaging Open Path Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (I-OPFTIR) with advanced computational tomography algorithms. The proposed technology expands the capability of OP-FTIR systems to 3D profiling applications. It does this by adding a spatially dispersed array of sensors at the focal plane of a si ...

  7. Software Tool for Composite Durability Prediction

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: A06T027

    Durability is the effect of time dependant processes, including fatigue, creep, moisture absorption, thermal-oxidation, abrasion, chemical reactions and physical ageing on mechanical properties. The ability to predict accurately the durability of composite materials and structures is critical to successfully designing for longevity. The existence of models alone is not sufficient; practical soft ...

  8. Miniature Generator Power for Advanced Prostheses

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A06T031

    The capabilities of current prostheses are substantially limited by the lack of suitable high energy density portable power. Specifically, current myoelectric prostheses utilize rechargeable batteries, which provide typically less than 10% of the daily energy required for typical activities of daily living. Such limitations in the energy source significantly limit the utility of these prostheses ...

  9. Advanced Robotic Detection of Chemical/Biological Agents, Toxic Industrial Gases, and IEDs for Force Health Protection.

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T029

    The recent rise in asymmetric warfare and terrorism has brought about an increased threat from biological and chemical weapons. Their potential lethality and their indiscriminate nature make them natural choices for use as a terror weapon. Quick, reliable, and safe detection of these agents is imperative. The Energid team proposes a novel teleoperated robotic system for the rapid detection of ch ...

  10. Rapid Concentration of Particles in Large Volumes of Fluid

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A06T022

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes an innovative approach to rapidly concentrate (1000:1) bacterial spores from large volumes of water for identification. The technique is based on acoustophoresis – the separation of particles with sound. Since the technology has already been demonstrated on a small scale our primary focus is on scalability for large volumes (1000 L) in short periods of time (10 mi ...
