  1. Design of Novel Brain-like Materials for Neural Interfacing

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: ST081002

    In recent years there has been increased interest in the development of microelecrode arrays for implantation in the brain to stimulate paralyzed body parts, to provide blind people with artificial vision, and to allow disabled people to operate a computer-controlled prosthetic device. Current neural probes have achieved superb capability to record and transduce high quality neural signals. Unfo ...

  2. A Real-Time, Non-Invasive Monitoring System of Combat Casualties for Early Detection of Hemorrhagic Shock During Transport and Higher Echelon Medical

    SBC: FLASHBACK TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A09AT027

    On the battlefield, medics must quickly determine injury severity, treat the greatest threats to life, diagnose hemorrhage and establish a triage order. The objective of this research project is to apply our active, long-term learning technology to the task of modeling and prediction of central blood volume parameters from extremely large, and variable physiological datasets. In Phase I, we appl ...

  3. TeraHertz Atmospheric&Ionospheric Propagation, Absorption and Scattering (TAIPAS)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: A09AT001

    Radio wave propagation models have steadily advanced during the past several decades producing what is widely recognized as a set of standard models for the attenuation, dispersion and nominal path of radio waves at frequencies within the radio region of the spectrum (i.e., which we define for these purposes as ~ 100 KHz to ~3 THz) with a focus on .1-1THz. Colorado Engineering, Inc. and the Unive ...

  4. Novel Propellants for Variable Thrust/Isp Colloid Thrusters

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT09

    ABSTRACT: Advanced spacecraft will demand thrusters that provide both extremely efficient operation for attitude control and high thrust for orbital transfer maneuvers, albeit with lower specific impulse. The colloid thruster, the most efficient of the electric thruster concepts, forms a Taylor cone to emit charged particles and produce thrust. Colloid thrusters typically emit charged droplets ...

  5. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD


    Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) with its partner, Drexel University, propose to build upon our Phase I success and continue the development of electrically contacted zinc oxide nanowire (NW) arrays for highly efficient solar blind UV sensors, and implement them in a packaged prototype product. The properties of ZnO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In partic ...

  6. Rationally-designed, D-conformation Antimicrobial Peptides as Novel Antibacterial Drug Candidates for the Treatment of Multi-drug-resistant Bacterial

    SBC: BioAMPS International LLC            Topic: N09T033

    The goal of this Navy Phase II STTR project is to identify and develop a D-conformation antimicrobial peptide as a novel, effective, and safe antibacterial drug candidate capable of entering human clinical trials. From a set of 4 uniquely designed analogs that exhibit superior in vitro biologic activity/safety data against clinical and drug-resistant gram-negative A. baumannii bacterial isolates, ...

  7. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  8. Contaminant Resistant High Power Density Fuel Cells for Military Application

    SBC: Treadstone Technologies Inc.            Topic: OSD08E09

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II proposal to the Department of Defense plans to demonstrate a design of 500 kW modular contaminant resistant high power density fuel cell power system using logistic fuel reformate as the fuel. Tread

  9. HITS: Hit and Instrumentation Telemetry System

    SBC: SEMQUEST, INC.            Topic: MDA08008

    A hit grid system that sends telemetry from optoelectromechanical sensors on a test target, offers high quality information which cannot be easily duplicated using other techniques. When such a system can also incorporate other target sensor data into the telemetry stream while improving size, weight, power, and bandwidth, the value is increased. Additionally, the development of an innovative so ...

  10. Wideband Beamformer

    SBC: Innovative Technology, Inc            Topic: MDA08027

    Future surveillance radars need to be more agile to identify and track increasingly complex targets. To meet this need, radars that can emit and receive many independently scanned beams will be required. Furthermore, the scanning must be two dimensional and operate over wide bands. One row of 16 elements forming eight independent beams will be developed, constructed and tested to demonstrate the ...
