  1. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation policy making, work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations (Van Dongen et al. 2003; Mollicone et al. 2010). Our group was the first to document the considerable magn ...

  2. Rapid Identification of Bacterial Virulence Factors

    SBC: VITAL PROBES, INC.            Topic: SB111002

    Rapid Virulence Factor Discovery System (RVFDS) is virulence factor-discovery platform in which all of the genes of a pathogen are expressed generating a random expression library (REL). The REL is then screened for the presence of potential virulence factors with an array of pull-down assays that employ components of the host"s extracellular matrix, mucus, and basement membrane as bait. The hos ...

  3. Point of Injury Sampling Technology for Battlefield Molecular Diagnostics

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: SB111001

    In this project Optofluidics, Inc. proposes to develop the Molecular Medic a point-of-care device for sample collection, processing, and quantification of blood-borne biomarkers. The technology is based on (1) a finger prick assay, (2) a capillary-driven blood filtration system, (3) a novel"nanofluidic collapse"protein concentration technique and (4) a mutliplexable, reconfigurable, ultrasensiti ...

  4. GENNET: Advanced System for Synthesis of High Fidelity Social Networks to support SHIELD

    SBC: CARLEY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB112004

    Our objective is to provide a semi-automated system to generate and verify scalable, high fidelity, multi-dimensional, social networks with realistic distributional, temporal and spatial characteristics as networks and as event sequences. This enables the user to generate networks varying in size, node attributes, geo-temporal characteristics, consistency with other networks, and reflection of kno ...

  5. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  6. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  7. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  8. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS, LLC            Topic: SB062015

    Development of new short-wave infrared imaging sensors with signal processing electronics on the same substrate is critical for a number of military and commercial applications. The objective of this research is to develop a new generation of Ge-on-Si p-n heterojunction photodiodes that will culminate in a demonstration of a 64 x 64-pixel infrared imaging array. These photodiodes, whose feas ...

  9. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use are tending toward robots collaborating directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough ...
