  1. 5V, High Gain, High Sensitivity Photomultiplier Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 26a

    The gamma ray spectrometers used for nuclear physics research at national laboratories are expensive, bulky, and limited in maximum count rate and other performance measures. Scintillators would be a viable alternative, provided that conventional glass photomultiplier tubes could be replaced with a high quantum efficiency, UV sensitive solid state detector that operates at low voltage, has low no ...

  2. A Bioactive Prosthetic Vascular Graft

    SBC: BIOSURFACES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 60,000 prosthetic grafts, which are comprised of either polyethylene terephthalate (polyester) or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), are implanted in the United States each year. Medium (6-8mm) and small (l t5mm) internal diameter (I.D.) prosthetic arterial grafts continue to have unacceptably high failure rates when used in the clinical setting. T ...

  3. A Large Size 3D Holographic Display with PR Polymers


    In this STTR project, Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi), teaming up with Prof. Di Bartolo’s group at Boston College, aims at developing a large size (300 mm x 300 mm) updatable 3D display with photorefractive polymers for battlefield and command and control applications. The proposed 3D display system features fast response (feasible to video-rate), high diffraction efficiency, and relati ...

  4. A low-cost point-of-care diagnostic test for simultaneous HIV-1 and STI

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An important approach for HIV/AIDS prevention is to diagnose co-infections that significantly increase the transmission of HIV. In this proposal, we propose to develop a rapid point-of-care (POC) test that simultaneous ly diagnoses HIV-1 and two sexually transmitted infections (STI's). Syphilis and genital herpes are STI's that enhance HIV transmission; if dia ...

  5. A Novel Approach to Microbe-Base Ethanol Production, GTL:and Related Biotechnologies

    SBC: SunEthanol Incorporated            Topic: 15c

    The development of commercially-viable, cellulosic ethanol biofuels technology has emerged as a national priority. However, the crystalline structure of cellulose constitutes a major barrier to the efficient conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to fermentable polymers and sugars, with significant effects on conversion rates. This project will pair an organism, Clostridium phytofermentans, which ...

  6. A Portable Multimodality System for in-field Airway Injury Assessment and Compliance Measurement

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C006

    Airway compromise is the third leading cause of potentially preventable death on the battlefield.Current evaluation techniques of the airways associated with smoke inhalation injury are highly subjective and lack the sensitivity required of an accurate diagnostic and assessment tool.The problem of detection is further compounded by the late onset of symptoms that in many cases do not present until ...

  7. A Real-Time, Portable Non-Invasive Monitoring System of Muscle Oxygen and pH in Trauma Patients

    SBC: Reflectance Medical Inc.            Topic: A08T037

    Trauma and severe hemorrhage remain the most frequent causes of death in the 1-44 year age group in both the civilian and military settings. Early recognition of shock and prompt institution of appropriate resuscitative measures are widely believed to improve outcome and decrease the progression to multi-system organ failure by virtue of maintaining end-organ perfusion. The physiological response ...

  8. Acoustic Mitigation System For Horizontal, Planar Surfaces Onboard Naval Ships

    SBC: NEVA ASSOC.            Topic: N08T014

    Typical acoustic materials rely on embedded continuous mass layer to attenuate low frequency sound. Energy from low frequency sound is not effectively mitigated with these materials unless a substantial amount of mass is added. Thus, standard materials for low frequency noise control tend to be heavy, expensive and difficult to install. A new technology is being developed that utilizes optimized ...

  9. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    White River Technologies, Inc. (WRT) presents this proposal, "Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines".The primary goal of the proposed effort is to develop a prototype vibrationally-enhanced detection system capable of landmine and IED detection and discrimination with performance greater than conventional GPR sensors.The main sensing compo ...

  10. Adaptive Hierarchical Multiple Models to Control Dynamic Systems

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF07T012

    Modern control theory offers mathematically rigorous and powerful solutions to many dynamic systems. Its limitations are that the classes of dynamic systems covered by the theory are limited to linear systems or certain well-structured nonlinear systems, and the adaptation of the controllers are often slow if the controller parameters are far away from their desired values. On the other hand, the ...
