  1. STTR Friction Stir Processing for Superplastic Forming

    SBC: FRICTION STIR LINK, INC.            Topic: N06T038

    Friction Stir Processing (FSP) is an emerging technology that can be used to pre or post-process a range of materials, including aluminum, to locally modify material properties. It is known that FSP can be used to enhance material properties for improved superplastic forming (SPF) behavior of aluminum. This can potentially allow for dramatic cost reductions of SPF and aluminum fabrications, all ...

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

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore PbSnSe detector array on Si substrate. Two approaches are proposed. One is a zero-risk incremental advance that employs a new growth condition to reduce the dislocation density. Another approach is a novel fabrication technique with high-risk but it could enable revolutionary rather than evolutionary advances. IV-VI semiconductors such as Pb1-x ...

  3. Gaseous, Liquid, and Gelled Propellant Hypergolic Reaction Mechanisms

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T001

    ORBITEC proposes a parallel computational and experimental effort to understand the phenomena underlying hypergolic ignition of gelled propellants. Gelled hypergolic propellants offer many benefits to modern propulsion systems. They offer good insensitive munitions characteristics and versatile performance. However, gelled propellants typically exhibit longer ignition delays than liquid propell ...

  4. High-yield plant based manufacturing of bioengineered spider silk (Phytosilk)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T015

    The high strength to weight and elasticity properties of spider silk make it of significant interest for the production of advanced fibers for military and civilian applications. Plants may offer the only feasible mechanism to produce quantities of spider silk proteins sufficient to sustain large scale manufacturing of these high performance fibers. Successful implementation of bioengineered spid ...

  5. Protein Production in Tobacco from an Amplified Inducible System

    SBC: RXOA BIOSCIENCES LLC            Topic: A06T015

    This Phase I proposal will test a UV-B light inducible system in tobacco to produce exceptionally large amounts of protein. There are three principal components to the system: 1) a tightly regulated, UV-B inducible promoter fused to a geminivirus replication associated protein (Rep) coding region, 2) a geminivirus-derived vector that is rapidly amplified by the Rep protein to produce very high y ...

  6. Ranging and Acuity Enhancement for Terahertz Imaging Spectrometers

    SBC: Tera-X, LLC            Topic: A06T020

    This Phase I effort identifies and analyzes a variety of antennas that can be used to mitigate standing-wave effects for pulsed and/or CW sub-millimeter-wave and THz imaging spectrometers independent of their technology (e.g. mm-wave vector network analyzers vs. fast-pulse time-domain THz systems). A close collaboration with Prof. Susan Hagness, who is an expert in computational electromagnetics a ...

  7. Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)

    SBC: Navatek Llc            Topic: N06T021

    The Navatek, Ltd. Team will successfully demonstrate the feasibility of using Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) materials to significantly reduce the weight of the (hull) structure of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV). We will use as a baseline for comparison our entrapment tunnel monohull (ETM) hullform. This hullform was selected by the Navy to satisfy the LCS (Flight ...

  8. Ruminant B-Lymphocyte Yellow Fluorescent Protein Aggregation Bioassay for Elk Chronic Wasting Disease

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A04T027

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop a cell culture model for elk chronic wasting disease (CWD) prion propagation that can be used as a bioassay for detecting CWD. Our goal will be accomplished by bioengineering a bovine B-lymphocyte cell (B-cell) line to surface express elk PrPc fused to yellow fluorescent protein (YFP). Interaction of these B-cells with infectious, mis-folded, proteas ...
