  2. Sequential Art Authoring and Layout Toolkit for Therapeutic Storytelling (SALTS)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB112003

    SSCI will develop a toolkit for assisting people with limited previous writing experience to write and illustrate a graphic novel as part of a program of treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This project will include built-in therapeutic aids for Art Therapy, Therapeutic Storytelling, and Narrative Therapy. In Phase I, we will analyze requirements and develop a detailed project plan for P ...

  3. Multifunctional Stabilization Matrix for Biological Samples

    SBC: Spectrasilk, Inc.            Topic: SB112005

    The need for improved biological sample collection and processing for diagnostic applications has grown with the advent of new assays based on small sample sizes and high performance analytics. In contrast to the advances in these analytics, the ability to collect, stabilize, ship and utilize such samples has lagged in terms of development. We offer a relatively simple platform based on recent dis ...

  4. Design and Development of Wafer-Level Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Micro-Camera

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB113002

    Low cost SWIR Micro-Sensors are needed for a variety of Defense and Commercial Applications. Magnolia proposes to investigate packaging and optics integration for short wave infrared focal plane arrays. This will include assessment of materials and manufacturing approaches amendable to the manufacture of wafer level camera. We will determine optimum array format and pixel size for imaging at a t ...

  5. A System to Observe and Classify Interactions for Assessment and Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB121002

    Military personnel are asked to interact effectively, under stress, with individuals from both similar and dramatically different backgrounds and cultures. The desire for automated, operationally deployable capabilities to improve such interactions has created an interest in the development of technologies to sense and report in real-time on the properties of interaction. To address this need, we ...

  6. Controlling Antibiotic Resistance by Vaccinating Bacterial Populations

    SBC: Ginkgo BioWorks            Topic: SB122001

    The prevalence of antibiotic resistant bacteria has risen dramatically over the past decades with over 70% of hospital bacterial infections harboring resistance to one or more classes of antibiotics. To date, the rise of drug resistant pathogens has been addressed by improved containment practices, judicious use of antibiotic treatments, and government-sponsored antibiotic research and development ...

  7. High-resolution, Ultra-sensitive Magnetic Imaging Using an Ensemble of Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) Centers in Diamond

    SBC: Quantum Diamond Technologies Inc            Topic: SB122002

    Ensembles of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond allow the detection of weak magnetic fields under ambient conditions, with wide-ranging applications in the physical and life sciences. We have previously demonstrated high-sensitivity and high-resolution NV-diamond magnetic field imaging devices in a university laboratory setting. The proposed SBIR project will transition these research resul ...

  8. Handheld Intelligent Tutors Personalized for Individual Training (HITPOINT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB122004

    Training first responders to efficiently select and effectively carry out emergency medical procedures in dynamic, highly stressful, and novel environments remains a challenge. Many traditional training techniques focus on frequent repetition and memorization of basic lifesaving tasks. However, responders need an expert knowledge of the underlying anatomy and reasoning behind those tasks to effect ...

  9. Epitaxial growth for facet passivation of high power diode lasers

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: SB122005

    A new facet coating material for high power diode lasers will be developed that reduces interface states at the cleaved facet and increases facet cooling. The facet coating is expected to be more robust and lead to increased power and brightness in high power diode lasers, bars and stacks. The facet coating technique makes use of commercial processes based on vacuum cleaving and epitaxial growth, ...

  10. Ultra-Bright Diode Laser Emitters for Pumping High-Power Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: SB122006

    There is a compelling need for scaling fiber lasers and amplifiers to higher power and energy for industrial and military applications. The primary scaling roadblock today is the very limited brightness of diode laser pumps. We propose to produce the highest brightness diode laser pump sources for fiber amplifiers demonstrated to date. TeraDiode will build high efficiency pump lasers at 976-nm fo ...
