  1. Biocatalytic production of precursors to lutein and zeaxanthin to address age related macular degeneration

    SBC: EscaZyme Biochemicals, LLC            Topic: N

    Project Summary Atrophic dry age related macular degeneration AMD is the leading cause of severe loss of vision for those over age Dietary supplements containing lutein and zeaxanthin are recommended by the NEI for those at risk of late AMD There has been a corresponding growth in demand for these two xanthophylls Lutein and zeaxanthin are currently sourced from marigolds grown mostl ...

  4. Packaging and Assemblies for High-temperature Intelligent Aerospace Controls

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: AF16AT17

    Continuing from the success of the Phase I project to develop a low-cost, fast-turnaround platform for extreme environments (temperatures >200 Celsius, high vibration), this Phase II project will demonstrate this platform in a real-world application for distributed engine control. To get a meaningful functioning platform as soon as possible, the Smart Sensing Node from the Air Force-commissioned D ...

  6. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...
