The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Infrared Signatures of Liquid-Contaminated Surfaces

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A11aT028

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its academic partner, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), will develop and test physics-based models for predicting long wavelength infrared (LWIR, 8 to 12 micro-m) reflectance and emittance spectra of surfaces co

  2. Enhanced Charge Transfer in Biological Molecules on Nanostructured Electrode Surfaces

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A12aT011

    The overall objective of this program is to enhance significantly charge transfer from biological molecules to nanostructured electrode surfaces. To achieve this objective, we plan to use combination of three approaches: 1) Develop an effective means for integrating the biological molecules onto the anode and cathode surfaces of the nanostructured electrodes, 2) Reduce the distance between the act ...

  3. Raman Biosensor for High Throughput Pollen Analysis

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A12aT018

    We propose to develop a device that is capable of rapidly identifying and classifying pollen from a broad sampling base using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). The proposed Raman device is designed to spectroscopically examine, identify and classify the spatial and temporal origin of pollen in complex mixtures using an automated high throughput SERS microscope system. The entire system w ...

  4. Spectrally-selective microbolometer

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12aT023

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with its STTR partner Sandia National Laboratories, proposes to develop a spectrally-selective microbolometer. The latter is the core technology behind an envisioned Phase III handheld chemical standoff sensor for detection of chemical warfare (CW) agents and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). The spectrally-selective microbolometer, underpinned by na ...

  5. Polymer with Enhanced Conductivity for Broadband Spectral Obscurant Applications

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12aT024

    The Army is interested in developing conductive polymer materials that have a very high conductivity, but are also processable into a range of particle shapes and sizes. These anisotropic particles will be tuned to provide obscuration properties in broad portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. PSI, and its partner Prof. Jennifer Irvin at the Texas State University, will develop two parallel pa ...

  6. New Mobile Game-based Application for Reliable Neurocognitive Assessment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A12aT029

    Superior cognitive function is necessary for Warfighters to be able to critically assess their surrounding environment, quickly and effectively solve problems, make decisions, and adapt to changing situations. Reliable assessment of cognitive status changes is not only important for Soldier performance, but could be critical for diagnosing various illnesses, including PTSD, chronic fatigue, and de ...

  7. Monocular Unmanned Leader-Follower (MULE-F) System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A10aT030

    The Army has a clear need for an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) capable of autonomously accompanying a single soldier or vehicle. Such a UGV would help solve both logistical problems of soldiers needing to transport more equipment and supplies than they can carry in a backpack, and tactical problems of scouting unsafe areas. Multiple designs for such UGVs exist; however, they require active remote ...

  8. BRDF Analysis of LADAR-based Target Surface Characterization

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A10aT006

    LADAR light reflection from a target is highly dependent of the spectral reflectivity and texture properties of the surface. Such dependencies could be exploited for target recognition based on surface characterization. Target surface light reflection is

  9. Human Brown Adipocyte Transplantation and In Vivo Metabolic Characterization

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Obesity and its associated metabolic complications including diabetes are becoming increasingly prevalent in the general population as well as in military personnel. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a major site of energy expenditure through thermogenesis, which is mediated by the mitochondrial uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1). Studies in animals over the last 30 years as well as recent data in humans str ...

  10. A Toolkit for Understanding Social Signals in Local Environments (TUSSLE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11DR1

    Increasingly, tactical personnel such as CoISTs, are responsible for making qualitative judgments of local conditions, or"atmospherics,"to provide insight to decision-makers in their unit as well as in higher echelons, despite a high op tempo and limited training. Tactical personnel must identify, correlate, and fuse dynamic, sparse sociocultural signals ("weak"signals) hidden within large, dispar ...
