  1. High-capacity and Cost-effective Manufacture of Chloroperoxidase

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A11aT014

    The chloroperoxidase enzyme from the filamentous fungus Caldariomyces fumago has applications in industrial chemical synthesis and the detection and inactivation of chemical warfare agents. Chloroperoxidase is capable of regio- and enantioselective oxygenations and halogenations of organic substrates. When performed chemically, these reactions typically require aggressive reagents and reaction c ...

  2. Specific Epigenetic Molecules Involved in Wound Healing and Repair

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A11aT030

    The ability to direct the wound pathways following injury could provide a critical path in wound care at crucial times during the progression of healing. A promising field of study in wound healing is epigenetics; alterations in gene expression caused by mechanisms other than changes in DNA sequence. Identification of epigenetic factors and their manipulation may result in the development of nov ...

  3. Quantum-Confined Nanocrystal Materials for Anti-Stokes Optical Coolers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: Nanocrystals (NCs) offer many potential benefits for optical refrigeration; these quantum-confined materials have discrete energy levels, large optical transition dipole moments, and high photoluminescence quantum efficiency. Using well-characterized upconverting ion-doped metal oxide NCs and core-shell semiconductor nanocrystals as a baseline, a design of experiments (DOE) will be cond ...

  4. Next-generation ad hoc networking through joint cognitive routing and spread-spectrum channelization

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF10BT09

    ABSTRACT: The primary objective of this STTR project is to develop a completely new approach to cognitive joint routing and spectrum allocation that will enable next-generation cognitive wireless networking between space, air, and ground USAF assets. The majority of cognitive radio network proposals rely on the notion of spectrum holes. This proposal will develop a system where cognitive users tr ...

  5. High frequency direction-finding system based on high-Tc Ion-Damaged Josephson Junction SQUID arrays

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: The overall goal of this project is to develop a small size, weight and power Direction Finding (DF) system based on SQUID array technology. High sensitivity, linearity, wide bandwidth of SQUID arrays antenna sensors will be enable close spacing of smaller antennas even for HF range. The SQUID arrays will be fabricated using high-temperature superconductor ion damaged Josephson junct ...

  6. Miniature, Portable, Device to Detect and Monitor Coagulopathy

    SBC: NANOMASON INC.            Topic: N10AT043

    Conventional coagulation tests use an isolated portion of the blood coagulation cycle to assess blood function by activating pathways of the cycle via chemical additives. Thromboelastography (TEG) is an effective tool for monitoring the entire coagulation cycle as a whole from a physical standpoint i.e. from the clot formation to fibrinolysis. Information about the quality and dynamics of clot for ...

  7. Ultra Wide Field of View Night Vision Goggles with Spherical Sensing

    SBC: InterScience, Inc.            Topic: N10BT049

    The currently fielded AN/AVS-9 night vision goggles (NVG) for use by air crew with a 40degrees Field of View (FOV) creates the so-call soda straw-effect that significantly hinders situational awareness desired for many types of missions. This FOV restriction limit has been identified as a causal factor in numerous aviation mishaps. Recognizing the needs for expanding FOV on NVG, we propose to deve ...

  8. Modeling of pulse propagation in a four level atomic medium for gyroscopic measurements

    SBC: Rochester Optical Manufacturing Company            Topic: N11AT005

    A detail computational model is important in the construction and optimization of a slow-light gyroscope. Such a model needs to take into account many physical conditions such as Doppler broadening and cavity boundary conditions. As a result, the computational cost and resources for a full model can become very demanding even for today"s powerful computing capabilities. The proposed effort develop ...

  9. Specialized Analysis, Modeling, and Optimization Tools for the Development of Innovative WDM Local Area Networks

    SBC: RSOFT DESIGN GROUP            Topic: N11AT008

    We proposed to perform innovative research towards the developing of a simulation tool consisting of a comprehensive set of models and including modeling techniques that account for the complex interactions between optical network components in WDM LANs, such as those planned for aerospace platforms. To a large extent, the modeling effort will be guided by the ongoing work of the AS-3 WDM LAN work ...

  10. Tunable Bandstop Filters for Suppression of Co-site Interference and Jamming Sources

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: N11AT016

    This proposal seeks to develop novel, widely tunable bandstop filters for the suppression of co-site interference in next generation phased array radar and electronic warfare systems. The filters are based upon highly loaded evanescent mode cavity resonators that are integrated into standard printed circuit board substrates. This integration and design strategy yields high resonator Q performance ...
