  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  3. Digital SQUID Array for Portable Low-Field MRI System for Combat Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H18

    Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring very long averaging times to obtain reasonable spatial resolution. The use of large arrays of SQUIDs wo ...

  4. Medical Modeling and Simulation Based Training Return on Investment Decision Model


    Many studies exist which validate M & S based medical training tools as effective in improving practitioner performance. There is little research addressing the cost effectiveness of such training solutions. A gap exists in the integration of cost, performance, schedule, risk, patient outcome improvement, and training efficiency and training transfer factors in assessing medical M & S based train ...

  5. Enhancing Code Awareness in Software Development Environment

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CP1

    Most large pieces of software are sufficiently complex that no individual completely understands all of its subparts. In order to make progress, programmers must operate in this environment of incomplete information. In many cases, programmers make poor design and implementation decisions because of a lack of awareness of how pieces of code interact with each other. We propose developing the Cod ...

  6. Deterministic Detection for Hijacked Program Execution

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA5

    We propose technology to automatically detect software exploits that hijack the execution of a running Linux kernel or one of its hosted applications. The key enabling technology for the proposed work is provided by KATE, the Kernel Analysis and Translation Engine. KATE uses a combination of software dynamic translation and hardware virtualization to provide fine-grained, efficient monitoring of a ...

  7. Modular Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD)

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N111002

    Safe, Inc. proposes to develop an occupant surrogate with functions and performance tailored to the needs of the vehicle blast test community. The new ATD will use a suite of technologies already developed and the result will be far more biofidelic than the Hybrid III. The new ATD will exhibit realistic injuries such as bone fractures at the appropriate loadings. Yet this new ATD can be instrument ...

  8. Reduced-Cost Grinding and Polishing of Large Sapphire Windows

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: N112105

    This feasibility study will focus on implementing our VIBE technology on large sapphire substrates. We have had past success with hard polycrystalline materials with removal rates 10-50x higher than conventional polishing. We feel confident that we can obtain similar high removal rates on sapphire. Most of our work will be focused on maintaining a wave front quality of lambda/10 over the entire la ...

  9. Reduced-Cost Grinding and Polishing of Large Sapphire Windows

    SBC: OPTIPRO SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N112105

    Developing faster more efficient processing methods for the fabrication of large sapphire windows has the potential to reduce their overall cost. The hardness of the material as well as its crystallographic orientation results in low material removal rates that lead to processing times longer than desired. These low removal rates are present in both the grinding and polishing phases of the process ...

  10. Backup Shipboard Landing System for Vertical Takeoff and Landing Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: FarCo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N112127

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I is the development of a system-level hardware-software architecture and algorithms for a backup shipboard landing system for VTOL UAVs. The proposed system is comprised of a combination of a multi-modal sensor suite and a synergistic combination of algorithmic components including data fusion, perception, stochastic motion prediction, path planning, decision maki ...
