  3. Enhancing Clergy Suicide Prevention and Referral

    SBC: ACADEMIC EDGE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in persons aged 25-34, the 3rd leading cause of death among people in the age groups 10-14 and 15-24, and the 8th leading cause of male deaths. Faith leaders and clergy have been identified in national strategic public health documents as important front-line gatekeepers for suicide prevention. Preliminary research by t ...

  4. Phased array ultrasonic aircraft fatigue damage inspection

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: AF083246

    The practice of removing aircraft from service and disassembling parts of its structure for periodic inspection negatively impacts readiness and leads to high sustainment costs. Using Acoustic Ideas''''''''s uniquely powerful and versatile phased array technology we will develop a novel inspection method that does not require disassembly. Multiple layers, large thicknesses, dissimilar metals, seal ...

  5. Modified Collins Cryocooler for Cryo-Propellant Thermal Management

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: T402

    Future lunar and planetary explorations will require the storage of cryogenic propellants, particularly liquid oxygen (LOX) and liquid hydrogen (LH2), in low earth orbit (LEO) for periods of time ranging from days to months, and possibly longer. LEO is a relatively warm thermal environment and without careful thermal management, significant quantities of stored liquid cryogens can be lost due to ...

  6. Label-free Multiplexed Immunoassay Platform for Diagnosing Liver Disease

    SBC: ZOIRAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of the present work is to demonstrate a label-free multiplexed immunoassay platform liver disease diagnosis. The method is to integrate multiple tests for serum antigens and antibodies onto a single disposable chip that could be used with the instrument for about the cost of one or a few current immunoassays that identify the presence of just one marke ...

  9. Visualization for Command and Control of Cyberspace Operations

    SBC: VISITREND            Topic: AF083022

    We propose to research, design, and evaluate the feasibility of a Visualization for Integrated Cyber Command and Control (VIC3) system that fuses and displays vast amounts of multidimensional cyber security data from multiple sources to provide a unified view of the cyber battlespace. VIC3 will allow commanders to monitor cyber activity, correlate events, understand information dependencies, evalu ...
