  1. (A-TEAMM) Advanced Team Effectiveness through Automated Model-Based Mitigation

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A11041

    Groups in network-centric environments are faced with many challenges including distributed collaboration, decen-tralized decision-making, and dynamic changes in team membership. The team literature provides evidence that these challenges impede the development of optimal team states (composed of trust, cohesion, shared mental mod-els, etc.), ultimately influencing a team"s ability to share missio ...

  2. 10 kW Polarization Maintaining Fiber Laser Power Amplifiers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA10008

    nLIGHT proposes the development of a 10 kW power amplifier with a predicted power conversion efficiency of approximately 45%. The 10 kW power amplifier will be based on nLIGHT's high power, high efficiency, narrow-linewidth fiber coupled lasers diode modules. We will utilize custom fused fiber combiners to combine the pump modules in an efficient manner, enabling the pumping of next-generatio ...

  3. 12-lead MRI-Compatible ECG for physiological monitoring and scanner synchronizati

    SBC: E-TROLZ, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR project aims to develop an MRI-compatible 12-lead ECG system. Such a system will provide greatly improved physiological monitoring inside the MRI, which is important for imaging severely ill patients (stroke, spine, patients with ischemic histories), and is also key to future MRI-guided interventions and surgeries. Current MRI-compatible ECG monit ...

  4. 20mN, Variable Specific Impulse Colloid Thruster

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: S304

    Colloid thrusters have long been known for their exceptional thrust efficiency and ability to operate over a range of specific impulse due to easily variable charge-to-mass ratio of emitted particles. They have also been considered limited to only very low thrust levels, able to produce few microNewtons from individual emission sites. This has motivated significant research into developing large ...

  5. A 100 W Green Laser for Photoinjection of GaAs Photoemission Guns

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: 44e

    For synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, a high-average-power green laser light source with an RF-pulse repetition rate in the range of 0.5 to 3 GHz is required to advance fundamental accelerator technology and its application to nuclear physics scientific research. The efficiency of GaAs photocathodes degrade over time. In order to maintain a constant photoemission, the photoinj ...

  6. A Bioactive Prosthetic Vascular Graft

    SBC: BIOSURFACES, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 60,000 prosthetic grafts, which are primarily comprised of polyethylene terephthalate (polyester) or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), are implanted in the United States each year. Unfortunately, these grafts continue to have high failure rates due to secondary complications associated with acute thromboses and incomplete, unregulated cellular prol ...

  7. A Clinical Decision Support Tool for Electronic Health Records

    SBC: Inflexxion, Inc.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Substance abuse treatment is often complicated by problems such as depression, family and interpersonal conflicts, and legal issues. When these issues are addressed with effective, evidence-based treatments (EBTs), outcomes improve. To improve the quality of addiction treatment, experts have called for the adoption of a continuing care management approach, invo ...

  8. A Compact Solid State Infrared Flare

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A09004

    In this Phase II SBIR proposal Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) describes the development a solid-state emitter package to replace the propellant-based candle of the M278 infrared flare. Propellant combustion in the current candle technology is unsteady, resulting in variations in the illumination intensity and also produces a visible signature that limits it usefulness in covert activities. The propo ...

  9. A Compact, Dual Excitation Raman Probe and Instrument for the Identification of Lunar Samples

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: S111

    NASA's Vision for Space Exploration advocates a return to the moon and involves a pl an of using the moon as a base of for missions to other planets. Early return missions to the moon will involve lunar exploration with robotic spacecrafts with instrumental payloads for scientific measurements of lunar surface features such as rocks, soil, and minerals. These instrument payloads will be helpf ...

  10. A Data-Driven Approach to Interactive Visualization of Power Grids

    SBC: Power Info Llc            Topic: 41d

    The emerging field of visual analytics, which integrates analytical reasoning with interactive visualization, appears to be a promising technique for improving the business practices in todays electric power industry. The conducted investigation has revealed that the existing commercial power grid visualization tools focus on displaying the data rather than providing users an interactive ability t ...
