  1. High-Throughput Single-Nanoparticle Magnetic Analysis Platform Using Diamond Magnetic Imaging

    SBC: Quantum Diamond Technologies Inc            Topic: NA

    Magnetic nanoparticles are widely-used tools over a range of industries, but have particularly powerful biomedical applications for clinical and research diagnostics, clinical therapy, and basic life science research. Many of these applications require consistent sources for magnetic nanoparticles with narrow distributions of magnetic properties, but no technology is now commercially available for ...

  2. Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection and Warning System

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: 131FR1

    Highway-rail grade crossings, at which there is an abrupt change in the level of the road surface as it crosses the tracks, present a severe hang-up risk to vehicles with low ground clearance. In Phase I and II, ATR developed a conceptual design for a Low Ground Clearance Vehicle Detection System (LGCVDS) to actively prevent such accidents. The LGCVDS is able to use a priori crossing profile data ...

  3. The Marine Debris and Small Object Mapping (DSOM) Radar System)

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 824D

    The DSOM system realized in a Phase II effort will provide a modular, compact and reconfigurable system with the ability to provide unique and new information about the scene of interest (e.g. temporal and height information) when compared with traditional SAR sensors. When compared with other imaging technologies, DSOM has the important advantages of being operable through cloud cover and at nigh ...

  4. Carbon Nanotube Array-based Nanosensor for Autonomous and Direct Measurement of Carbonate

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 825R

    This program is aimed at the development of a deployable sensor for direct measurement of carbonate ions in saline waters with a sensitivity of 5 μM. The sensor combines the selectivity of carbonate ionophore with the unique structure of a carbon nanotube array to achieve a large dynamic range, high specificity and sensitivity. Phase I was focused on demonstrating the proof-of-principle concept f ...

  5. Engineering Structures for Offshore Macroalgae Farmingar System)

    SBC: CA Goudey & Associates            Topic: 812F

    This project continues our development of innovative systems for farming macroalgae on the high seas. We will identify suitable sites in Nantucket Sound to demonstrate our system and determine the associated environmental parameters including depths, currents, and waves. By combining that information with load and acceleration data from our Phase I wave-basin tests, we will refine the structural d ...

  6. Multimodal Alerting Interface with Networked Short-range Transmissions (MAIN-ST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 161FH2

    The connected vehicles (CV) program is a DOT initiative that uses dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) to enable safer and greener surface transportation. Ongoing efforts exist to bring motor vehicles and infrastructure onto CV networks, but bicycles have been largely overlooked. Consequently, a significant need exists to bring cyclists onto these networks so other connected entities can be ...

  7. Bolstering Awareness with Real-Time Rider Alert and Cueing for Upcoming Danger Avoidance (BARRACUDA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 151FH3

    In addition to hazards relevant to automobiles, motorcycle riders must remain vigilant for hazards that pose significant danger uniquely to motorcycles, such as uneven terrain, sand/gravel, and potholes. However, there is currently no motorcycle-specific hazard tracking or alerting system available for riders. To address this need, Charles River Analytics executed a successful Phase I effort to de ...

  8. Moving Equipment Danger Personal Alert System (MEDPAS)

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: 151FR2001

    Locomotives weigh up to 240 ton each. Rail cars can weigh from 30 ton (empty) to 140 ton (loaded). Track construction and maintenance equipment, earthmoving plant and haul trucks can all weigh 10’s of tons each. Rail road and yard workers can, literally, be surrounded by these very large, heavy and potentially dangerous pieces of equipment. When a 200-lb worker ‘argues’ with any of these equ ...

  9. 3-D Digital Image Correlation Based Non-Destructive Testing System for Qualification of Additive Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: NA

    NIST's seeks a high resolution DIC technology for qualification of complex AM parts. To meet this critical need, X-wave Innovations Inc. proposes to develop a 3-Dimentional Digital Image Correlation (3-D DIC) based NDT system. The proposed effort builds upon the success of XII in developing a variety of NDT technologies (including DIC system) for advanced materials evaluation. The success of the p ...

  10. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 171NH1

    Driving under the influence of marijuana, the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States is reported to double the risk of crash involvement. As marijuana decriminalization and legalization measures continue to gain acceptance, the potential number of drivers using marijuana could rise dramatically, necessitating new ways for law enforcement to combat the pursuant increase in drug relate ...
