  1. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  2. Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T3

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power to electrical power at high efficiency.  Examples include extremely hot heat shields during vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres (Mars/Venus probes) and during high speed ascent thro ...

  3. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  4. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL TRANSMISSION FOR HELICOPTER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: A16018

    US Army utilizes a wide range of vehicles across ground and air platforms where mechanical transmissions are used to transmit power from the engine to the drive shaft. Gears are used to create a torque and speed conversion with mechanical contact between the gear teeth surfaces. Lubrication is necessary to create a protective film between rolling and sliding surfaces as well as provide sufficient ...

  6. Signal Processing at Radio Frequency (RF) for Position Navigation & Timing Co-Site Interference

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: A17039

    Numerous operations in an increasingly congested electromagnetic spectrum, intensify demand for data at the tactical edge, and the diminishing extent of electromagnetic spectrum provisioned for the military has resulted in the need for advanced technologies to mitigate Global Positioning System (GPS) interference due to co-site interference and C4ISR. Metamagnetics proposes a powerful and adaptabl ...

  7. CMOS Compatible Deposition of Multi-Ferroic Films for Tunable Microwave Applications

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17019

    Built upon the progress in Phase I period, Winchester Technologies, LLC proposes to investigate practical magnetoelectric antennas during the Phase II period for different applications. State of the art antennas suffer from three major open challenges: (1) large antenna size, (2) antenna impedance mismatch; (3) ground plane effect. This is because state of the art antennas are based on oscillating ...

  8. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antifungals for Textile Applications

    SBC: Antimicrobial Materials, Inc.            Topic: A17018

    Fungal skin infections plague active duty servicemembers at elevated rates due to exposure to warm, humid climates, poor skin hygiene, and close-quarters living arrangements. We have developed a novel solution that incorporates an endophytic fungal extract with selective activity against Trichophyton species of pathogens. In addition, the selected compound has negligible impact on the organisms th ...

  9. FTL's FASCI, Forward Area Suspended Contaminant Identifier, Field Instrumentation to measure, quantify, and characterize fuel contaminants

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: A17116

    To avoid machine failure, diesel engine hardware manufacturers recommend limiting fuel contamination particles based on number and size distribution. Work performed by TARDEC has developed limits for particulate and free water contamination in fuel utilizing light obscuration particle counting; however, this approach is unable to differentiate between solid particulates, free water droplets, and a ...

  10. EROSION RESISTANT HYBRIDSIL ICEPHOBIC COATINGS FOR AIRCRAFT PROPULSION TURBOMACHINERY INLET COMPONENTS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N182115

    Through the proposed Navy SBIR program, NanoSonic will molecularly engineer and empirically optimize its HybridSil Icephobic coating technology for imparting long-term passive ice protection to aircraft propulsion turbomachinery inlet components. Unlike competing icephobic coating technologies that rely on unreacted, surface enriching / lubricating oils that impart temporary ice protection, NanoSo ...
