  1. Mobility Optimization via Enhanced Robotic Sensing (MOVERS)

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    Robotic Research in partnership with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) proposes to develop the Mobility Optimization via Enhanced Robotic Sensing (MOVERS) system for any two-wheeled, four-wheeled or tracked robotic platform to autonomously perform hazardous terrain detection and classification and adjust its driving control strategy to safely negotiate hazardous terrain. Our goal is to develop auto ...

  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. Rugged Automated Training System

    SBC: Strategic Feasibilities, Inc.            Topic: A11aT019

    It is accepted that certain animals have the olfactory and learning ability to be trained in the detection of explosives and other compounds. The possibility of using rats and other small mammals to detect landmines, and potentially IED's is very real. In order to perform the detection task efficiently and effectively, these animals need to be trained, and certified as reliable and accurate. ...

  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. Development Of Standoff Laser-Induced Thermal (Infrared) Emission (LITE) System For Chemical and Biological Materials

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: A09AT022

    There is a current need for an active standoff system that can detect and classify surfaces that have been contaminated with chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) materials. Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Laser Induced Thermal Emission (LITE) has shown great promise for detection of such contaminants. In Phase I of this program we, for the first time, have demonstrated generati ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Cloud-based Autonomous Real-time Malware Analysis (CARMA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT020

    The amount of new malware encountered daily is accelerating at an unprecedented rate, an explosion that is also reflected in target and attack vector diversity. There has also been a dramatic increase in the use of malware kits, a problem in its own right because kits allow adversaries to easily create one-time-use malware variants for which generic signatures and general solutions are neither pra ...
