  2. Smart Grade Crossing Monitor System

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR2

    During Phase I, IEM developed a proof of concept for a Smart Grade Crossing Monitor (SGCM) using multispectral imaging technology for enhanced monitoring of highway rail grade crossings to improve safety by providing warnings of significant objects present in the crossing. The Phase I work conclusively demonstrated that multispectral imaging is clearly superior to visible or infrared spectrum imag ...

  3. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  4. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  5. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  6. Solar Roadways

    SBC: SOLAR ROADWAYS INCORPORATED            Topic: 091FH5

    As stated in the solicitation, the pavement infrastructure in the US covers a large surface area and requires intensive energy and natural resources. In addition, the surface of the pavement is typically impermeable, causing negative consequences. Vehicles that travel over these pavements are also resource intensive. Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with m ...

  7. OPTICAL POLARIZATION BASED TAMPER-PROOF DRIVER'S LICENSE AND IDENTIFICATION CARDS

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF FALSE DRIVER'S LICENSES AND OTHER IDENTIFICATION CARDS TO OBTAIN ALCOHOL BY UNDER- AGE DRIVERS AND BY REPEAT OFFENDERS WITH SUSPENDED LICENSES IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY SUCH DRIVERS ARE MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS TO FATALITIES, INJURIES AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. THEDEVELOPMENT OF TAMPER-PROOF DRIVERS' LICENSES AND IDENTIFICATION CARDS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THIS PROBLEM. DUE TO HI ...

  8. FACIAL LACERATION MEASUREMENT MASK FOR ANTHROPOMORPHIC MODELS

    SBC: Triangle Research and Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    ]THE PURPOSE OF THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL BE TO DEVELOP AND TEST IN PROTOTYPE AN INNOVATIVE FACE MASK TO FIT THE HYBRID III MANIKIN HEADS. THE MASK WILL BE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY TO BE SUITABLE FOR MEASURING FACIAL LACERATION POTENTIAL DURING VARIOUS TRAUMA RESEARCH EFFORTS. THIS MASK WILL BE CONSTRUCTED OF COMPOSITES THAT MIMIC MANY CHARACTERISTICS OFLIVING HUMAN SKIN AND WILL CAUSE MINIMAL DYNAMIC ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A CAR BED FOR PREMATURE AND PHYSICALLY DISABLED INFANTS

    SBC: HARTLEY ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS A UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED FACT THAT THE PROPER USE OF WELL DESIGNED INFANT AND CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS CAN SIGNIFICANTLY DECREASE THE RISK OF DEATH AND SERIOUS INJURY IN MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHS INVOLVING NORMAL CHILDREN. HOWEVER,WHEN PREMATURE INFANTS ARE PLACED IN SEMI-RECLINED INFANT SAFETY SEATS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR RESPIRATORY COMPROMISE. IN ADDITION, MANY DISABLED INFANTS ARE UNABLE TO TR ...
