  1. CruziScreen a recombinant antigen based screening test for Chagas disease

    SBC: PAI Life Sciences, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    Project Summary Chagas disease is a severe inflammatory syndrome caused by infection with a protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi Although transmission occurs mostly through an intermediate insect host the infection is silent and chronic carriers pose a significant risk through the transfer of infected products made from donated blood of these individuals to blood recipients Up to new c ...

  5. 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 ...

  10. Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: To produce high dielectric strength insulator materials, our approach, called Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength (OAHDS), will optimize fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing in order to fabricate high density parts. Currently, thermoplastics 3D printed via FFF have dielectric strengths one to three orders of magnitude lower than injection molded parts ma ...
