  3. Modified Nanoparticles for Lipophilic Toxin Sequestration

    SBC: AuraSense, LLC            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins are a class of weaponizable toxic secondary metabolites of molds and fungi. No treatments exist for exposure to these lipophilic poisons. AuraSense proposes to use lipid and protein modified gold nanoparticles to develop constructs for the sequestration of toxic lipophilic molecules. Nanoparticles are ideal materials for development of such a system, as they are able to be fi ...

  6. Radiation-Hardened, Resistive Random Access Memory

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF103093

    ABSTRACT: Tezzaron intends to develop a nonvolatile low latency memory based on 3D assembly of RRAM memory cell wafers with CMOS logic wafers. The very high density 3D interconnect that Tezzaron can produce allows circuitry to be manufactured on different wafers in different semiconductor processes and then integrated into a single polylithic substrate that acts as if were a single circuit. The c ...

  7. Readouts for Energetic, High-Speed Event Sensing

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF103188

    Current infrared (IR) focal plane arrays (FPAs) are too slow for the detection of high speed events such as fast moving targets primarily due to the speed of their readout integrated circuits (ROICs). The speed of the readout is not only dependent on the unit cell bandwidth, but also the ability to move the electrical signals from the unit cell to the signal processing unit, which operates at ambi ...

  8. Thermally Efficient Fuel Management Technology

    SBC: Turnkey Design Services, LLC            Topic: AF103205

    ABSTRACT: Emerging platforms such as stealth aircraft have three to five times the heat load of legacy platforms while being limited in their ability to reject heat to the environment due to the reduction of vents, grills and inlets that create radar and infra-red hotspots. This increased heat load is the result of modern avionics, advanced mission systems; fueldraulic based vectored thrust cont ...
