  1. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  2. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  3. Measuring the Concentration of Host-cell Proteins in Biomanufacturing Using Silicon Nanowire Array Sensors

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: NA

    Our innovation is a low cost, sensitive, quantitative biosensor that can detect many biomarkers on the same chip. Our sensor consists of vertically aligned silicon nanowires. The silicon nanowires’ high surface area to volume ratio makes them sensitive to the environment around them and can thus lead to high sensitivity detection. Each of the nanowires can be functionalized to be sensitive to ei ...

  4. Under Keel Clearance Management in Support ofPrecision Navigation

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: WR’s approach involves design of a modular, S-129 compliant Under Keel Clearance - Risk Management System (UKC-RMS). This will allow for the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), ECS, PPUs, and other situational awareness applications to have S-129 Exchange Sets developed for a planned route.In WR’s design, a system such as an ECDIS generates an S40X Rout ...

  5. Riptide Hypoxic Zone AUV

    SBC: Riptide Autonomous Solutions, LLC            Topic: 827

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Buoyancy driven oceanographic gliders, although reasonably cost effective, have challenges operating in the zones due to high gradients in water density. Under this topic, Riptide will provide a cost-effective autonomous undersea vehicle (AUV) design leveraged from Riptide's family of man-portable AUVs that can more effectively map the hypoxic areas. The stated goals of this to ...

  6. A Tube-Deployed Expendable UAV for AtmosphericSensing

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 8213

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA is pursuing sustained, in-situ sensing technology to support improved atmospheric modeling of the upper ocean boundary environment, including the air-sea interface, during turbulent storms. Improved atmospheric modeling in this critical region will lead to better forecasting and support NOAA's mandate to protect property and save lives. Small, unmanned aircraft, equipped w ...

  7. Harmful Algal Bloom Species, Toxin and Total Phytoplankton Identification System (HABStats) for HandHeld, Remotely Networked or Submersible Operation

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 821

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and commercialize the next generation of low cost, low power, ruggedized, and accurate phytoplankton single cell and whole colony counting, characterization and classification system called HABStats. We will accomplish this using the following three unique and innovative approaches: 1) High-throughput color, Light Field Imaging Flow Cytometry to acquire mo ...

  8. "Big Eye" Binoculars Extension Kit for Automating Bearing/Range Measurement and Image Storage

    SBC: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 823

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: R3 Digital Sciences, Inc. (R3-DS) proposes to develop and commercialize an extension kit for "Big-Eye" and other binoculars that will automatically compute and store distance and bearing assessments by combining vertical reticle and stereoscopy measurement with motion analysis techniques. It will also capture and store photographic and video evidence of what the observer sees t ...

  9. Low-cost Mooring Location Beacon for Coastal Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Triton Systems, Inc. proposes development of the Open-Source Oceanographic Asset Recovery Beacon (OpenORB) that will allow the deployment of coastal instrumentation moorings with affordable protection against loss. This open-source kit would significantly reduce the purchase price of a commercial location beacon by allowing the end-user to assemble a customized system with mini ...
