  1. Plasmonic Nanoantennas for Single-Molecule, Surface-Enhanced-Raman-Scattering Based Sensing

    SBC: L. C. PEGASUS CORP.            Topic: A10AT014

    This proposed project is concerned with the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a new class of plasmonic nanostructures for single molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for biological and chemical sensing applications. A complete design of the plasmonic nanostructures with large local field enhancements (E/E0>100) will be formulated, and the fabrication procedures will be developed fo ...

  2. Multi-Enzyme Based Sensor for Water Contaminant Detection

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A10AT025

    Luna Innovations collaborating with the University of New Mexico will determine the feasibility of developing a light weight handheld multi-enzyme sensor device that is capable of detecting a wide array of water contaminants, toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). The proposed multi-enzyme electrode technology will provide significant improvements in sensitivity, operational stability, and shelf li ...

  3. GHz-range photon counting with single-photon avalanche photodiodes

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: A11aT008

    In the past few years, there have been promising demonstrations of new approaches to short-gate (i.e., sub-nanosecond) operation of single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) with gating frequencies as high as 2 GHz. However, these demonstrations have had limitations, including operation at just a single fixed frequency, fairly high residual afterpulsing levels, and the lack of industrialization req ...

  4. Story Creation and Inference through Bayesian Extraction (SCRIBE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: A11aT010

    Without a deep understanding of causes, context, and meaning of the events they observe, Warfighters are unable to reliably develop or execute effective courses of action. Unfortunately, traditional methods of accessing this information require significant effort searching large volumes of unstructured text from varied open sources. Advanced methods for coping with this problem face several challe ...

  5. MOCVD of High Performance Complex Oxide Films for Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop high efficiency, switchable RF filters. The technical approach is based on thin films of paraelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 and SrTiO3, which can show piezoelectric behavior under an applied DC bias. When integrated into resonator structures, these materials can act as both an RF filter and an RF switch. Combinin ...

  6. A Rugged Automated Training System

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A11at019

    "Barron Associates, Inc. proposes to develop the Rugged Automated Training (RAT) system, a cost-effective, rugged, automated environment to train and deploy small animals to detect landmines and other compounds of interest, and to evaluate their performance. The RAT system will train animals to recognize odorants using standard Pavlovian conditioning procedures in specialized, automated opera ...

  7. Origami Antibodies for Threat Sensing

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: A11aT021

    Beginning from an advanced stage of development, this Phase I STTR project will produce designs and prototypes for a ricin-specific artificial antibody constructed using DNA origami. These novel constructs will provide both a capture function (mimicking the properties of an antibody) and intrinsic electro-optical reporting functionality, a significant improvement over current antibody capability. ...

  8. THz Biosensor Based on Plasmonic Nanoarchitectures

    SBC: VIBRATESS            Topic: A11aT022

    In this collaborative STTR project between Vibratess LLC and UVA, we intent to conduct a combined theoretical and experimental study of plasmonic architectures for utilization with biological and chemical sensing in the THz spectral range. Plasmon Polariton (SSPP) devices that utilize metamaterials constructed of a conductor with sub-wavelength periodic structural features on it surface can tailor ...

  9. Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA10T003

    In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in real time to drive the thermal response model. A simple 1-D thermal calculation based on an analyt ...

  10. STOC: Secure, Tactical On-Demand Cloud

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: AF10BT03

    ABSTRACT: We present a novel architecture for on-demand clouds, which means creating a cloud computing environment when needed that opportunistically takes advantage of available processors. The processors are located on mobile computers at the tactical edge of a network and connect via wireless networks. Clusters of processors can be interconnected by trunks. Compute nodes may appear or disappea ...
