  1. Efficient Extraction of Oil from Microalgae

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 815

    Microalgae are a promising feedstock for biofuels because of their high oil content, excellent CO2 capture, and ability to use brackish water and non-arable land. The extraction of oil from algae represents a challenging cost barrier to commercial biofuel production. Conventional technologies for algal oil extraction are energy-inefficient, cost-intensive, or non scalable, leading to bar ...

  3. Development of MicroFluidic Palette for Cellular Responses to Chemical Stimuli

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Current research tools to understand tumor cell migration and metastases are limited to linear gradients or constant flow across cells skewing results. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed a tool called the microfluidic palette which exposes cells to chemical stimuli in a static environment overcoming the limitations above. Several improvements are necessary ...

  7. A functional and multimodal biofeedback device to treat balance dysfunction in mTBI patients.

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H22

    According to existing data, there are more than 1.5 million of Americans sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each Year. Balance disorders represent one of the main regular problems that patients have to deal with, and thus everyday. Rehabilitation programs do exist but they are dependable of the clinician or physiotherapist and they do not take in account the multimodal aspects of balance co ...

  8. Thermoelectric-Powered Field Kitchen Appliances

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09162

    Cooking appliances in U.S. Army field kitchens are currently heated by burning JP-8 fuel using electrically powered burners. Power is supplied by a separate JP-8 fired generator that serves multiple appliances simultaneously. This is inefficient, as generators are only 20-25% efficient, and unreliable since failure of the generator results in the failure of the entire kitchen operation. This is a ...

  9. Plug & Play Integrated Hybrid Power System for Humanoid Robot

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A10125

    Robotic platforms, such as humanoid robots and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) are significantly contributing to the capabilities of the U.S. Army. The BEAR humanoid robot offers exceptional capabilities for a robotic platform, but its mission duration is substantially constrained by the low volumetric energy density of rechargeable batteries. For maximum operational flexibility, the power sourc ...

  10. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...
