  1. Development of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) Phantoms to Enhance the Diagnosis of Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT031

    Survival rates for soldiers injured by IED blasts and similar trauma are enhanced by prompt, high-quality medical care. Among the survivors, however, increasing numbers report symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Mild and moderate TBIs with no skull-penetrating wounds are difficult to detect and diagnose with commonly used diagnostic systems. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), a subset of Mag ...

  2. Cell Culture Approaches to Generating Brown Adipose Tissue for Autologous Transplantation

    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 ...

  3. High-capacity and Cost-effective Manufacture of Chloroperoxidase

    SBC: IMPACT Technology Development            Topic: A11aT014

    Bioengineering offers an efficient and robust route for the production of enzymatic catalysts such as chloroperoxidase (CPO). The CPO from Caldariomyces fumago can catalyze non-specific halogenation of electrophilic organic molecules, epoxidation and hydroxylation of olefins and organic sulfides, and generation of free chlorine from chloride ion. The objectives are to: A. Develop a Caldari ...

  4. Electrochemical Generation of Hydrogen from Methanol

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT012

    The US Army has identified limitations of the DMFC (poor efficiency) and RMFC (complex system, high temperature process) approaches, and is soliciting innovation that will enable high efficiency hydrogen generation from methanol in a simple approach that has minimal thermal signature. It is the objective of this project to address these needs through the development of a novel hybrid electrochemic ...

  5. Ultra Fine Grain Steel Alloys by Severe Plastic Deformation

    SBC: TRANSITION45 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10aT001

    This STTR program proposes to exploit the tremendous benefits that could be offered by the development of ultra fine grain steel alloys for application to the production of high performance components for military rotorcraft applications. A severe plastic deformation technology based on isothermal forging technologies will be explored here. The goal is to demonstrate a practical, production level ...

  6. Rapid Ethnographic Assessment and Data management Integration Toolkit (READ-IT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    Obtaining support from the local population is crucial for successful counterinsurgency (COIN) operations. US forces often fail to adequately understand the ethnographic characteristics of foreign populationswarfighters need access to ethnographic methods which help them to rapidly capture and interpret cultural, social, and economic data. A warfighter in high-risk areas needs easy-to-use tools th ...

  7. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Deep UV Raman and Fluorescence Detection

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    This proposal addresses the need to increase the probability of detection (PD) and reduce the probability of false alarm (Pfa) for non-contact, real-time sensors for trace levels of biological and chemical targets using simultaneous detection of Raman and fluorescence emissions. Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic method that provides information about molecular bonds in target materials. ...

  8. High Performance Complex Oxide Thin Film Materials to Enable Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators (FBAR) for Low-Loss Radio Frequency Devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    The proposed project focuses on a new technology that has a built-in switch to turn the filter on and off, and thus is functionally equivalent to a high-selectivity filter and a low-loss switch, where the switch draws no DC power. Agile calls this new invention the Switchable Trimmable Acoustic Resonator (STAR). An array of such filters could implement a very compact and reconfigurable high-sele ...

  9. Dynamic 3-D Threat Mapping Using a Sensor Constellation Deployed on Mobile Platforms

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10aT022

    In this effort, Physical Sciences Inc. will develop and implement algorithms and hardware to perform the fusion of information obtained from multiple LWIR passive hyperspectral sensors to provide the capability to determine the extent, absolute geo-location, and 3-D concentration distribution of chemical threat clouds from mobile platforms. The effort will be conducted in conjunction with Profess ...

  10. Plasmonic Nanoantennas for Single-Molecule, Surface-Enhanced-Raman-Scattering Based Sensing

    SBC: L. C. PEGASUS CORP.            Topic: A10AT014

    This proposed project is concerned with the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a new class of plasmonic nanostructures for single molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for biological and chemical sensing applications. A complete design of the plasmonic nanostructures with large local field enhancements (E/E0>100) will be formulated, and the fabrication procedures will be developed fo ...
