  1. Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) for characterizing invertebrate vision

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    In partnership with the Strausfeld Lab at the University of Arizona, BNS proposes to develop an Amplitude and Polarization High-speed Image Display (APHID) based on our previous VIS/NIR Hyperspectral Image Projector (HIP) design. Using BNS-developed liquid crystal (LC) spatial light modulators (SLMs), this display will provide high-speed multispectral wide-field visual stimulus to invertebrates ov ...

  2. 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 ...

  7. Developing a new treatment for MS: Controlling CD40 in EAE

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society reports that 1.2 million people worldwide and more than 400,000 people in the U.S. have clinically diagnosed MS. Currently there are 10 FDA approved drugs for MS but none ofthe current drugs have impacted the course of MS to prevent relapses or progression of disease. An efficient means to control the autoimmune infl ...

  8. Developing a small peptide to control autoimmune inflammation in type diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Type Diabetes T D affects an ever growing population While this disease typically has been associated with juveniles the disease in adult populations is rapidly increasing The defining clinical component is insulin loss which occurs because of sustained inflammation in the islets At present there is no means to prevent or reverse insulin loss A major inflammatory pathway in T D ...
