  1. Photonic Band Gap Structures for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: SB092002

    The demand for renewable energy is motivating R&D efforts toward the development of novel photovoltaic (PV) technology. Efficient and low cost solar cells will have an important role in defense applications particularly powering portable electronic devices. Current solar cells based on single crystal silicon are still not at a level to be cost effective when compared to other forms of electrical g ...

  2. Deep UUV Deployed Vector Sensor System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06145

    The proposed research "Deep UUV Deployed Surveillance System" will identify the requirements and formulate a conceptual design for a new wide area underwater surveillance that exploits the unique attributes of deep submergence environments to detect and track atmospheric, seismic and acoustic observations. The effort will address the noise, propagation and geophysical properties of acoustic liste ...

  3. Mobile Offshore Platform for Wind Turbine Power Generation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SB082056

    The Department of Defense (DOD) would benefit from a persistent mobile power generating capability to support global deployments, remote basing, and disaster relief. Eliminating the need for fuel transport over long distance, a towable floating wind turbine could provide a persistent power source. The most robust configuration for this concept is an unmoored free-floating design. Such a mobile fre ...

  4. Nanotechnology-Enhanced Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: SB072001

    Chlorine gas was first used as a weapon during World War I, and reemerged as a threat in Iraq compounding the dangers from existing improvised explosive devices. One of the significant challenges with preventing attacks that involve toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) like chlorine and ammonia is that they have genuine civilian uses for water treatment, in refrigeration systems, and other applicatio ...

  5. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development programs are severely limited by the expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from the in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference in testing from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device for quantitati ...

  6. Microfluidic High-throughput Platform for Determining of Kinetic Constants of Enzyme Variants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10107

    Molecular biology techniques allow generating combinatorial libraries of large number of enzyme variants. However, there is currently no technology available for screening the enzyme libraries for identifying variants with improved activity for the substrate. We propose to develop a novel, microfluidic, high-throughput platform for determining kinetic constants of enzyme variants and identifying v ...

  7. Novel MicroPower Source for Insect Based Sensor and Communication Platforms

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD09105

    Our objective is to develop a novel micropower source to be integrated with a microsensor, and communication chip on an insect, delivering a state-of-the-art unmanned chemical detection device. The biological fuel cell (Bio-FC) power source will leverage ongoing research at CFDRC and provide a compact/lightweight power supply for mounting on numerous types of insects and producing necessary power ...

  8. High Power Density TAG Motors for Hybrid Electric Air Platforms

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082011

    DARPA SBIR solicitation SB082-011 seeks the design and development of high power density electric motors for hybrid electric air platforms, indicating a need for a prototype motor rated at 7 hp, weight less than 1.4 lbs, efficiency greater than 95% and operating at speeds less than 10,000 revolutions per minute (RPM), to be used for a ducted fan of less than 12 inches in diameter with a targeted s ...

  9. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082055

    A significant amount of personal injury and property damage as well as lost productivity could be avoided by speeding up the body’s adjustment cycle to new circadian schedules or re-synchronizing body schedules that have slipped or advanced. For the military, this problem is especially acute because the warfighters’ duties include dangerous equipment and a need for 24-hour operational readine ...

  10. Explosion-Proof Solid State Lighting Fixture for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082054

    Within harsh environment areas, Naval vessels require illumination. Incandescent based Symbol 48.2 explosion-proof fixtures are rated to operate in these spaces but are inefficient, resulting in unsafe fixture surface temperatures and unnecessarily high energy consumption. Under such extreme operating conditions, the lamps in the fixtures fail frequently, leading to high maintenance costs. Prod ...
