  1. A Chemical Sensitive RFID Sensor for Tracking Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: AF07T016

    Virtual EM, in collaboration with the Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences (MNIMBS) of the University of Michigan, proposes to develop the first stage in a BWA sensor, an electronic switch that indicates the presence of a biological warfare agent (BWA). This work will use previously designed aptamers that bind specifically to the BWA. The switch will activate in t ...

  2. A Computational Framework for Multiscale Simulations of Weakly Ionized Plasmas

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF07T022

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop a unified computational framework integrating adequate physical models for simulating complex non-equilibrium plasmas. Plasma dynamics is characterized by disparate spatial and temporal scales each described by appropriate physical models. The project aims to classify possible scenarios and develop general recipes for clustering phase space to dynami ...

  3. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    We propose the development of a high-throughput screening platform to facilitate the discovery of lead compounds from natural product extracts (NPEs). The proposed effort encompasses (a) utilization of NPEs from novel sources (cave organisms) with rich chemical diversity, (b) development of assays for specifically identified malaria targets, and (c) development of data management and analysis tool ...

  4. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    Mefloquine is known to cause adverse neurological effects, possibly attributable to single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Our objective is to develop a genetic screen capable of determining the susceptibility of an individual to Mefloquine neurotoxicity. In Phase I, transcriptional profiling of primary neurons exposed to Mefloquine was used to construct an intracellular pathway model to explain ...

  5. A Unified Approach to Sensor-Based Terrain Characterization and UGV Mobility Prediction

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A07T027

    Unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) will play an important role in the nation's next-generation ground forces. One key limitation of autonomous UGVs arises from current approaches to sensor data analysis and interpretation. Most current approaches to sensor data analysis rely on classification: that is, analyzing remotely observable "features" to assign a terrain region as a member of a pre-specifie ...

  6. Advanced Combat Simulation for More Effective Anti-Terrorist Operations

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF07T023

    This proposal is for the development of an architecture for asymmetric and anti-terrorist simulations and the application of that architecture in the design and development of multiple user-friendly, PC-based, artificially intelligent asymmetric combat simulation systems. This effort will utilize a number of existing, mature computer wargames and will focus on enhancements to those game systems u ...

  7. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further develop IV-VI PbSnSe detectors epitaxially grown on Si substrates. The motivation of fabricating IV-VI detector arrays on Si is based on the following advantages of IV-VI Pb-salt semiconductors. (1) The large dielectric constant helps screen and localize the defect related effects. (2) The epitaxial material on Si is highly uniform, and thus the cutoff ...

  8. Advanced Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T003

    This effort will extend the Phase I design, development, implementation, testing and performance evaluation of an automated prototype Multisensor Attributes and Contextual Information-Aided Track Correlation Algorithm. The proposed algorithm integrates the following modules based modified/enhanced existing stand-alone algorithms: a) A basic Multisensor Data Collection and Feature Extraction Module ...

  9. Advanced Solid-Oxide Fuel Cell Technology

    SBC: ADAPTIVE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: OSD07T006

    Low temperature (550 C) SOFC will be developed and characterized with a combination of impedance spectroscopy and high resolution microscopy (FIB, SEM, TEM, XEDS, EELS, SAED, CBED methods). Initial focus will be on a low temperature samarium doped ceria electrolyte and low temperature cathodes to include LSCuF, LSCoF-SDC, LSCuF-SDC, and SmSrCo-SDC. Key interfacial structure and aging effects wil ...

  10. Alternative Aggregate Combat Modeling Algorithms

    SBC: Gnosys, Inc.            Topic: ST071003

    We propose to develop a means of combining unit-level and entity-level combat simulations that combines the best features of both and avoids the problems and overhead of multi-resolution simulations and inter-level interactions. The essential idea, which will be elaborated in the following sections, is to develop new alternative aggregate-level algorithms for key combat phenomenology (moving, sen ...
