  1. A Bioactive Nanofibrous Sewing Cuff for Treatment of Cardiac Valvular Disease

    SBC: BIOSURFACES, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY Cardiac valve repair or replacement is indicated when progression of degenerative disease or bacterial infection of the native valve results in valvular dysfunction, thereby impacting cardiac output. Both procedures require the use of a woven or knitted polyester material with an internal reinforcement (Teflon, silicone or metal) to either stabilize the native valve (annuloplasty r ...

  2. A Biological Small Angle X-ray Scattering Station (BioSAXS) for the Compact Light


    7. Project Summary/Abstract We propose to develop a Biological Small-angle X-ray Scattering (BioSAXS) station for the Compact Light Source, a powerful new generation of X-ray sources, which will enable biologists and biochemists to pursue state-of-the-artresearch in macromolecular structure studies in their own laboratories. The frontier of structural biology is the determination of large macromol ...

  3. Abuse Tolerant High Energy LiCoPO4-Based 5V Li-ion Cells

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: A14023

    TIAX will build, characterize and abuse test lithium-ion cells employing LiCoPO4 cathodes and control metal-oxide based cathodes (such as LiCoO2 ) opposite graphite anodes. In Phase I, TIAX will perform overcharge and external short circuit tests to the specification of the UL1642 standard and will also perform nail penetration tests on both types of cells. In the option program TIAX will perfor ...

  6. Accurate Angle of Incidence (AOI) Measurement Capability

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF131177

    ABSTRACT: For certain weapons systems, lethality is directly correlated to the orientation of the weapon with respect to the target at impact, also known as the angle of incidence (AOI). Accurately measuring AOI is of the utmost importance in developing and advancing state-of-the-art precision weapon systems. Currently, there is no commercially available sensor system for measuring AOI to the pre ...

  8. ACLAMATE: Automated Cognitive Load Assessment for Medical StAff Training and Evaluation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    Although great strides have been made in the development of simulators for training technical and teamwork skills, much less progress has been made with regard to skill assessment. Typically, performance is measured using a rating scale with anchors ranging from"low"to"high."Such methods are too coarse to provide an accurate assessment of individual or team performance. What is needed are unobtrus ...
