  1. An Integrated Data System for Machine Learning based Prediction of Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC)

    SBC: HelloMaxwell, Inc.            Topic: 90

    Radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) are key components for wireless communication system. RFIC’s hard-tomodel parasitic effects and poor simulation accuracy require multiple trial-and-error tape-outs (fabrications) to meet product specs. Tape-out is very slow (2 months) and very costly (as high as $2M). In the coming 5G era, this problem gets worse as mmWave frequency parasitic effects a ...

  2. Awayr Security: Validating the NIST Phish Scale Toward Artificial Intelligence Approaches Toward Human Cybersecurity

    SBC: Awayr, Inc            Topic: 90

    Remote operated social engineering (ROSE) attacks account for a surprising share of successful cyberattack. For example, The Verizon Data Breach Incident Response 2019 report found that approximately 94% of all malicious code was introduced into systems via email. Threat actors, illegally, benefit from knowledge gained from repeated massive remote operated social engineering operations. Defensive ...

  3. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 90

    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 as-manufactured material properties are unknown. Attempts to predict performance of ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Developing a robust and scalable calibration approach to low-cost AQ sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Poor air quality represents a major public health risk, contributing to an estimated one of every eight deaths worldwide. Low-cost air quality sensors have developed rapidly over the last few years and offer the opportunity to make air quality monitoring widespread at an affordable price. However, low-cost sensors are currently unable to deliver accurate, reliable data due to a lack of understandi ...

  7. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. Phase II research will look to improve sample concentration, cell lysis, and DNA purification techniques that were developed in Phase I. More specifically, optimization of the prototype lysis/elution fluid will be further developed for cell lysis using BSL-1 organisms, Vibrio harveyi, a surrogate for pathogenic Vibrio ssp. Techniques will be developed to ove ...

  8. OpenORB Low-Cost Mooring Location Beacon for Costal Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    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 minimal time and effort. ...

  9. Phase II Commercialization of HABStats: A Harmful Algal Bloom Species, Toxin and Total Phytoplankton Identification System

    SBC: CoastalOceanVision, Inc            Topic: 821

    In Phase I, we developed a prototype instrument for counting, sizing and identifying both non-toxic and toxic Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) species. We did this by integrating three innovative technologies: High-throughput color, Light Field Imaging Flow Cytometry to acquire morphological information for each cell, Raman spectroscopy to acquire species-specific molecular information on pigments and tr ...

  10. Development, Validation, and Implementation of CMC Algorithm into a Software Platform for Firearm Analysis

    SBC: Cadre Research Labs (Illinois) LLC            Topic: NA

    The research involves implementation of a comparison algorithm for firearm forensics. The Congruent Matching Cells (CMC) algorithm and its associated CMF, CMPS, and CMX methods have been developed by NIST yet do not appear in any commercially available software. As requested in the call for proposals, we will implement the algorithms in the C++ programming language, we will validate their performa ...
