  1. A Novel Coverglass System with Enhanced Radiation Resistance

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF04029

    The Foster-Miller team is developing a novel coverglass system that protects photovoltaic cells on space power systems that are exposed to high doses of ionizing radiation. The spectrum of radiation a solar cell is exposed to not only provides usable energy, over time it also reduces the efficiency of the cell by darkening the barrier coverglass, escalates the operating temperature, and deteriora ...

  2. Bayesian Troop-Target Detection, Tracking, and Prediction Using FOPEN-GMTI Radar

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB041024

    The "troop-target" problem of automatic detection, tracking, and prediction of the formations of dismounted ground troops concealed in foliage, using FOPEN-GMTI radars introduces challenges well beyond those encountered in more conventional group-target problems. AD HOC troop formations are considerably more amorphous and unpredictable and they must be deduced from the constituent individuals. Y ...

  3. Rapid Clinical Surge-Testing for Biothreat Agents

    SBC: FIRST LIGHT BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Following a bioterrorist attack, hundreds of thousands of potential victims may require testing and treatment. The critical need to test large numbers of people for exposure to a biothreat agent may overwhelm the capacity of the clinical and public health infrastructure. The approximately 25,000 sentinel laboratories in the Laboratory Response Network, which co ...

  4. Development of an anti-malaria toxin vaccine candidate


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Malarial disease represents one of the most pressing medical healthcare issues facing the world today. While limited drug treatment options exist, a vaccine solution is widely considered as one of the most effective therapeutic weapons to combat malaria. Despite years of research, though, malarial vaccine initiatives have yet to produce a viable candidate. One ...

  5. High Field Magnets for MRI Applications

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The specific aim of the Phase I and Phase II research program will be to design and build an "open", split pair coil, high field (>1 .5T), cryogen-free MRI magnet. The key innovation that will make this goal feasible is the development of an advanced, high performance, round high temperature superconductor capable of operation at 20 Kelvin. Operating at a te ...

  6. Spectral imaging for automated malignant blast counting


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to extend our successful development of an agile spectral light source for light microscopy, funded through the NCI-IMAT initiative, into FDA trials. The SpectraLamp(tm) device enables the automated and quantitative analysis of double-immunostained samples in brightfield (non-fluorescence-based) microscopy, with particular utility for hematopatho ...

  7. A Robust Image Based Navigation System for an Air Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N03025

    The objectives of this project (Phase I and II) are to develop an automated, robust, and reliable image based navigation system for an air vehicle. Phase I (1) developed a mathematical foundation for motion image navigation, (2) formulated the mathematical basis for processing a series of sensed frames to generate the terrain profile and correlating the profile to a pre-defined reference map to ...

  8. The Robotic Mule

    SBC: BOSTON DYNAMICS            Topic: A03242

    We propose to develop Legged Robot Mule, a new kind of robot that helps dismounted soldiers by carrying part of their load. Legged Robot Mule will travel on operationally relevant terrain, such as narrow mountain trails and densely wooded jungles. It will use dynamic balance to support its payload while maintaining a narrow base, enhancing its mobility. It will use computer vision to follow a hum ...

  9. Si-N-B-C Aerogels for Thermal Protection System of Reentry Vehicles

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: AF04031

    The Air Force has an interest in new designs and new materials for TPS of hypersonic reentry vehicles. Military hypersonic vehicles will reenter the atmosphere according to trajectories that are more aggressive than that of the Space Shuttle Orbiter and expected to be able to maneuver in the atmosphere at speeds around March 20 for more than 4100 seconds. This will result in the extremely high t ...

  10. Hydrogel Activated Bulkhead Shaft Seal

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N04073

    Midé is proposing to complete the development of a hydrogel activated bulkhead shaft seal for the DDG-51 class ships. The purpose of a bulkhead seal is to prevent flooding between compartments along the main propulsion shafting. The current shipbuilder specifications require that the bulkhead shaft seal must be self-activating with a maximum leakage rate of 1 US pt/min for DDG ships. The probl ...
