  2. High-Throughput Low-Cost Manufacturing of Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: Weinberg Medical Physics, Inc.            Topic: 90103

    New shape-engineered iron-based microscopic contrast agents (MCAs) for magnetic resonance imaging promise to increase diagnostic accuracy while reducing side effects, and enhance scientists’ ability to track stem cells. Currently, techniques used for making multispectral microscale contrast agent particles are cost prohibitive. In Phase I, an innovative technique (employing template-guided elect ...

  3. Resonant Scan Lens for Scanning Beam LIDAR

    SBC: z-senz LLC            Topic: 90501

    The objective of this Phase II project is to research, develop, and commercialize a resonant scan lens (RSL) for use in a resonant light detection and ranging (R-LIDAR) distance sensor. R-LIDAR uses a resonant optomechanical system to generate a beam scan. While resonant optomechanical systems produce high-speed and large field-of-view (FOV) scans from a miniature form factor, the beam scans lack ...

  4. Tofu-tolerant Mariculture: Genomics-assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811

    While certain forage fisheries remain sustainable and well-maintained, they clearly are not scalable – to expand domestic marine aquaculture and increase the nation’s seafood security, aquafeed formulations must be adapted to make greater use of sustainable agriculture proteins and oils produced in America’s heartland. Kampachi Farms and University of Nebraska have been working jointly to re ...

  6. Passive Inter Modulationfor Corrosion Assessment and Localization (PIMCAL)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15025

    It is well documented that corrosion, and many other non-perfections of metal structures, when exposed to multi-tone radio-frequency (RF) emissions exhibit Passive Inter Modulation (PIM) emissions. PIM establishes fundamental limits of performance for wireless sensor, communication, radar, and navigation systems that operate in high output power environments. Compounding the PIM problem is the lar ...

  7. AiMNET: User-Configurable Autonomous Establishing and Management of Secure Networks

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15011

    "Modeling and Simulation (M&S) tools play a key role to assess BMDS operational performance. However, current simulation missions require extensive participation of human testers/operators to configure the network components and maintain the network topology to meet the network architecture and security constraint. This drives up cost and hinders the evaluation and testing process, and also preven ...

  8. MEMS IMU Solutions for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: TANENHAUS & ASSOC INC            Topic: MDA15026

    In 2006 Tanenhaus and Associates, Inc. began designing a miniature IMU that met SWaP requirements using its patented innovative approach of combining arrays of COTS MEMS sensors to achieve far superior performance than MEMS used alone. The MEMS arrays provide redundancy and robustness and achieve sensor low drift errors. This Phase I SBIR will provide environmental testing and performance data on ...

  9. Sufficient Statistics for System of Systems Control (S4C)

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: MDA15T002

    There is an urgent need to develop and demonstrate innovative control, design and analysis techniques to characterize the stability and performance of a system of systems (SoS) as a function of sub-system dynamics, network structure and control/decision processes. This is particularly true in the missile defense scenario, which involves a coordinated defense against threats. However, there is no e ...

  10. Mechanistic Model Development for Gold Contaminated Solder Joint Reliability

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: MDA15T005

    DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is the ability to determine solder joint gold contaminatio ...
