  1. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  2. Braided Composite Technologies for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: A & P TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A209

    The Phase 2 effort will be used to advance the material and design technologies that were explored in the Phase 1 study of hybrid gears. In this hybrid approach, the conventional metallic web is replaced with a composite element. This alternative design generates a significant weight reduction and the potential for the reduction of noise and vibration. The Phase 2 program will make the first larg ...

  3. FINE-FILAMENT MAGNESIUM DIBORIDE SUPERCONDUCTOR WIRE FOR TURBOELECTRIC PROPULSION SYSTEMS

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A303

    The availability of low AC loss magnesium diboride (MgB2) superconducting wires enables much lighter weight superconducting stator coils than with any other metal or ceramic superconductor. This, together with Hyper Tech's capability to fabricate long piece-length (potentially 60 km) wires, in turn enables lighter superconducting motors/generators, essential components in the turboelectric ai ...

  4. Low-Cost Manufacturing Technique for Advanced Regenerative Cooling for In-Space Cryogenic Engines

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: H202

    The goal of the proposed effort is to demonstrate feasibility of using selective laser melting (SLM, an emerging manufacturing technique) to manufacture a subscale combustion chamber liner that features an advanced regenerative cooling technique that combines high performance with low pressure drop. SLM enables the ability to "print" the advanced regenerative liner in mere hours, despit ...

  5. Advanced Nanostructured Cathode for Ultra High Specific Energy Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: H802

    Integrate advanced nanotechnology with energy storage technology to develop advanced cathode materials for use in Li-ion batteries while maintaining a high level of safety, stability, and cycle life, allowing the cathodes to be tailored to provide very high specific energy or very high specific power depending on the relative ratio of the three components-active material, current conductors/collec ...

  6. Design and Development of a Compact and Rugged Phase and Fluorescence Microscope for Space Utilization

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: E103

    In this SBIR Phase 1 we propose to develop a novel microscope by integrating Fourier phase contrast microscopy (FPCM) and epi-fluorescence microscopy. In FPCM, the high degree coherence of low power laser source provides well resolved spatial frequency bands in the Fourier plane and the retardation is generated by photo-thermally induced phase transitions in a liquid crystal by varying the intens ...

  7. High-Temperature Liners for Broadband Noise Reduction

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A302

    Core noise will become a larger component of engine noise overall, as more efficient design trends of fan and jet noise reduction technologies are implemented. The necessity to keep weight and material costs low, as well as the complex geometry and high temperatures involved with the combustion region, make the production of acoustic liners a difficult task. CRG will develop and produce a prototy ...

  8. OrFPGA: An Empirical Performance Tuning Tool for FPGA Designs

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T1101

    With the capacity and performance of FPGAs suitable for space borne applications continuously increasing, the design of FPGAs is becoming increasingly complex involving trading off or simultaneous optimization of space, speed, and power. RNET and ANL are proposing to develop software infrastructure that facilitates automatic performance tuning of FPGAs in terms of speed, power, and size. We introd ...

  9. Nano-structures Enhanced Novel Composite Electrode Material for Batteries

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: H1002

    Integrate advanced nanotechnology with energy storage technology to develop advanced cathode material for use in Li-ion batteries while maintaining high level of safety, stability and cycle life, allowing the cathodes to be tailored to provide very high specific energy or very high specific power depending on the relative ratio of the three components- active material, current conductors/collector ...

  10. Particle Flow Physics Modeling for Extreme Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T403

    The liberation of particles induced by rocket plume flow from spacecraft landing on unprepared regolith of the Moon, Mars, and other destinations poses high mission risks for robotic and human exploration activities. This process occurs in a combination of "extreme environments" that combine low gravity, little or no atmosphere, with rocket exhaust gas flow that is supersonic and partial ...
