  1. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

  2. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHA19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause of preventable deaths. Viscoelastic tests such as thromboelastography and rotational thromboelastometry can monitor the dynamics of clot developme ...

  3. Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery Capability

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A13AT019

    Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury with little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. It is not enough to focus therapeutic treatment on the se ...

  4. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF19AT008

    The research objective of the proposed work is to increase the efficiency of the laser return of a Sodium Guide Star Laser (SGSL) reflected off the sodium layer for increased reliability and applicability of the artificial guide star technique. During Phase I, we will demonstrate the concept of maximizing the SGSL signal returns using numerical simulations that account for the effects of atmospher ...

  5. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF19AT017

    The research objective is to develop a tunable spatially-varying photonic crystal (SVPC) to achieve the optical propagation properties (reflection and transmission) of the light through the designed structure for the visible and near IR-bands. The light from this SVPC will be able to focus and bend as a function of the spatial variation of the refractive index, input angle, and state of polarizati ...

  6. CIM-MIAS (Cyber Information Management and Mission Impact Analysis System)

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: AF18CT002

    The DoD lacks an multi-level security (MLS) cyber information management (CIM) system capable of collecting, sharing and disseminating cyber information containing threats, system vulnerabilities and mission impacts and risks for systems operating at multiple security levels.A system that can securely collect and persist this information from various systems operating at various security levels is ...

  7. Innovations in Physical Modeling and Statistical Exploitation of Electromagnetic Target Signatures

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: AF12BT06

    ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use of training sets of inputs and outputs, a data mode ...

  8. Intra-Subaperture Adaptive Optical (ISAO) System

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: Current and projected limitations on the maximum power from a high power single mode fiber laser amplifier impose architectural limitations on a high power phased array laser weapon system. Prior studies strongly indicate that when faced with this limitation the optimal approach is (to borrow the term for Paul McManamon) a Phased Array of Phased Arrays (PAPA) geometry wherein large(r) ...

  9. Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) for Directed Energy Phased Arrays

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF12BT13

    ABSTRACT: To address the Air Force need for an adaptive optics system using a fiber laser array as the spatial phase correction system within the subaperature of an array of discrete telescopes, Optonicus and The University of Dayton propose the development of a new Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE) system. The integration of new fiber-array architectures with novel imaging and ada ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing of Multifunctional Nanocomposites

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: A13AT010

    Sciperio with team members Georgia Institute of Technology and Centecorp have teamed up to develop an Additive Manufacturing Composite using nano and micro fillers. The team will develop multi-scale models that are supported by experimental characterization for advanced 3D Printable materials. Inelastic response of high strength hierarchical structures composed of engineered materials and specif ...
