  1. Cannula System for "Bridge to Recovery" Cardiac Assist

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac failure is the, largest single cause of mortality in the United States today. With an increase in the use of long-term cardiac assist devices, there is also a need for the short-term "bridge to recovery" application. This application is intended to provide a low-cost temporary support for patients whose heart is capable of recovering. This "patient scr ...

  3. Autonomous Operation of UAVs from USVs

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N05055

    Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) will address the integral operation of a USV with multiple UAVs. Such a system leverages the advantages of both platforms while compensating for the limitations of each. The USV provides range and endurance, deploying the UAVs across a long distance or after long periods on station. The USV also provides sensor coverage of the underwater environment, of whi ...

  4. Capsid assembly inhibitors for the treatment of AIDS

    SBC: Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current HIV-1 therapy suffers from inadequate viral load suppression due to poor compliance, resistance, and interactions with other drugs and can lead to spread of drug-resistant strains. The current drug cocktails need to include inhibitors of viral components that are likely to slow resistance development. One such target is the HIV-1 capsid, an essential vi ...

  5. Radiation Shielding and Hydrogen Storage with Multifunctional Carbon

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: B309

    This project addresses two vital problems for long-term space travel activities: radiation shielding and hydrogen storage for power and propulsion. While both problems have been studied for many years, there is currently no satisfactory technology for providing adequate non-parasitic shielding. Even in low-Earth orbit, astronauts must be closely monitored for radiation exposure, and some mission ...

  6. Distributed System for Field Detection of Stray Energy from Laser Weapons

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05313

    A number of high-energy laser weapons currently under development by and for the U.S. military will provide our armed forces with capabilities that are unmatched by conventional armaments. Laser weapons allow targets to be destroyed from remote locations without the delays associated with the transit of typical missiles and artillery shells. However, during engagement the laser radiation reflect ...

  7. Propulsion System Performance and Health Monitor

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF05192

    The innovation proposed is a flight-worthy optical sensor that will monitor propulsion system performance and health characteristics, including identifying the onset of combustion instability, in air-breathing engines such as turbojets and ramjets. It is an innovation for three reasons: 1) the sensing is performed in the hot exhaust flow at the back of the engine instead of at the flame-front in t ...

  9. Nanodroplet PCR Lab-Chip for Clinical Pathogen Detection

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Rapid and accurate detection and identification of pathogens is crucial for the effective management and treatment of infectious disease. While molecular diagnostic techniques including PCR are a promising approach for rapid and sensitive detection of pathogens, they suffer from a number of technical drawbacks which have slowed their acceptance in the clinic. ...

  10. Wave Energy Harvesting to Power Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N05T021

    Recent world events have highlighted the need for timely and accurate intelligence data to assess threats and combat terror. An unmanned surface vehicle (USV ) can potentially perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, provide force protection, hunt for mines in coastal waters or harbors, and provide port security. USVs under development by the Navy are powered by the ...
