  1. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  2. Next-Generation Voltage Sensitive Dyes for Cell Bioelectricity Measurements

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: SB141002

    Akita Innovations proposes to develop the next generation of voltage-sensitive dyes for cellular bioelectricity measurements by engineering electric field sensitivity into a class of highly fluorescent dyes which heretofore have not been used for this purpose. The much higher brightness of these dyes will improve the sensitivity of the voltage measurements. Akita will also develop a method of ta ...

  3. Inconspicuous Up-Armoring of Vehicles Using Segmented Ceramic and Metallic Elements

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14003

    Triton Systems Inc.(Triton), together with our partner Technical Products Inc. (TPI) will conduct a feasibility study to evaluate options for armoring non standard commercial vehicles (NSCV) in an unobtrusive fashion using austere mechanical facilities corresponding to expedient basing in the area of operations. Triton has wide experience in metallic, ceramic and composite armoring solutions and ...

  4. Low Profile Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SOCOM14005

    High speed combatant craft utilized by SOCOM, such as the Riverine (SOC-R), use pumped raw water to provide engine cooling for the twin marine diesel engines. While raw water provides an essentially limitless heat sink, it often contains debris which can clog engine strainers, causing the engines to overheat. Thus, engine performance, as well as maintenance, is negatively affected by the use of th ...

  5. Manufacturable High-Energy-Density Titanium Dioxide Capacitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: SB142001

    The increased burden and elevated performance requirements on Department of Defense (DoD) electrical systems for power conditioning and pulsed-power applications demands next-generation passive electrical components, particularly capacitors. Current capacitors operate at lower temperatures and are bulky because of their low energy density. Ceramic dielectric capacitors offer high-temperature per ...

  6. Oxytocin: Improving measurement sensitivity and specificity

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB132001

    This SBIR Phase I Proposal aims to develop a detection method for enabling sensitive and specific measurement of oxytocin, particularly to discriminate between the 9- and 12- amino acid versions. It aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel hybrid molecular imprinting device that can accomplish the overall goals of the program. The technical approach will use the knowledge that the peptide co ...

  7. Voltage-Sensitive Diamond Nanosensors

    SBC: Dust Identity, Inc.            Topic: SB141002

    In this Small Business Innovation Research program, we will develop a new class of nanosensors that are high contrast, ultrabright and fast optical voltage-indicators from diamond nanocrystals for neural activity imaging applications in vitro and in vivo. These photostable and cytocompatible diamond nanosensors will be able to monitor the bioelectric states and sub-threshold events in human cells ...
