  1. New Thruster for Proliferated Satellites Has More Force and Longer Life

    SBC: The Granville Group Inc.            Topic: ST092005

    Granville has designed a new satellite/spacecraft propulsion engine, GREP, delivering over 100.mN/1.0 kW of force from strong electromagnetic energy… more force magnitude and efficiency than existing propellant limited ion thrusters. And, because it uses renewable power from on-board solar/electric panels, GREP offers extended propulsion maneuver life, up to 15 years or more, substantially lon ...

  2. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  3. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: ST092005

    Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...

  4. Novel Methods for Sensor Quieting in Turbulent Flows

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: ST092004

    The Progeny – University of Utah team proposes a new approach for flow noise reduction to improve acoustic sensor performance. Our proposal is to investigate the ability of controlling the turbulent flow by utilizing acceleration which makes the flow locally laminar. Our proposed method of achieving acceleration is to send the flow around a concave surface, by adding a “two-dimensional bump ...

  5. Advanced Materials and Methods for Biospecimen Collection for Infectious Disease

    SBC: CERES NANOSCIENCES            Topic: ST12B001

    There is an urgent need for simple, reliable and effective tools for improved biospecimen collection, preservation and extraction of low-abundance analytes for improved detection and diagnostic assays. To address the DoD's need for clinical and field deployable biospecimen collection materials for infectious diseases, Ceres Nanosciences (Ceres) in collaboration with GMU's National Cente ...

  6. Automated Approaches to Cellular Engineering and Biomanufacturing

    SBC: Covitect Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    Genome-scale predictable cellular design and engineering of biomanufacturing systems is the overarching a goal of DARPA's Living Foundry thrust and, if realized, will enable rapid engineering of living biosystems for a broad range of applications in biotechnology and pharmacology. However, constructing living cells with designed genome is not fully automated and is severely limited by inhere ...

  7. Preservation Matrix for Improved Biological Specimen Storage and Recovery

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: ST12B001

    Luna Innovations will determine the feasibility of modifying our novel bio-encapsulation technology for enhanced recovery of viral and bacterial targets from swab-like biospecimens. In the proposed Phase I, Luna will work with Dr. Hudson (North Carolina State Univiersity, College of Textiles) in order to modify our encapsulation process for integration with non-woven materials for swab collectio ...

  8. The Message in the Medium: Predicting influence and attention using attitude annotation and salience modeling

    SBC: Ntrepid Corporation            Topic: ST12B002

    We propose scalable, linear-time models and algorithms for online social network analysis that remedy limitations of current state-of-the-art models by creating a capability for tracking, predicting affiliations, and roles of participants in and across online communities. The model goes beyond simple clustering and community detection by using more of the message in the media, i.e. by taking into ...

  9. Development of Gravitational Radiation Technology for Military Applications

    SBC: SCIX3 LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    Gravitational radiation is detected by its effect of rotating the polarization vectors of a high number N of entangled photons exhibiting quantum nonlinear geometric phase and the Klyshko effect for NOON states in a Michelson interferometer. The gravitati

  10. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion has the potential to significantly improve the specific fuel consumption for gas turbine engines by realizing a pressure rise through the combustor as opposed to a pressure drop. One drawback to this form of combustion is the cycl
