  3. Scaled Melanin Production to Enable Advanced Materials

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A19BT010

    Melanin is a largely unexplored biomolecule with a large diversity of molecular composition. It has broad electromagnetic absorbance, is capable of absorbing gamma radiation, is a strong antioxidant, and is resistant to environmental degradation. Despite many intriguing qualities, it has never been produced at industrial scales to enable innovations in materials and coatings. In response to the de ...

  4. Investigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Microelectronic Devices for developing predictive models of degradation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 20A001

    Radiation effects in microelectronic components are a significant concern for the reliability of DoD systems that operate at high altitudes or in outer space. Typical characterization efforts focus on macroscale degradation signatures from electrical measurements at device terminals. However, a comprehensive analysis of radiation-induced physical defects is not possible based solely on terminal me ...

  5. MELD Mobile Metal Manufacturing Technologies For Repair And Retrofit of Infrastructure Systems

    SBC: MELD Manufacturing Corporation            Topic: A19BT012

    America’s infrastructure is aging, and in countless instances there is a critical need to address the degradation of structural components before disaster strikes. Two main infrastructure components are bridges and railways. MELD can fabricate or repair unweldable metals, yields wrought properties, is portable, and has significantly lower operating costs than other processes. MELD, formerly know ...

  6. Rapid, High Throughput Epigenetic Assay for Whole Blood PTSD Genes

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A19BT013

    Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a forefront of public health concern as the problem is especially acute among war veterans. The current treatment methods for PTSD mainly consist of antidepressant medications and psychotherapy, however, these are still not very effective considering drug use disorders and suicide. Epigenetics, in particular, DNA methylation has been known to show a signifi ...

  7. A Drop-In Non-Flammable Electrolyte for Fire-Resistant, High Performance Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: A19BT016

    Recent incidents on Li-ion batteries (LIBs) have raised safety concerns for electric vehicles, cell phones, and many other battery-powered devices. The root cause arises from the flammable organic liquid electrolytes. However, a commercially viable non-flammable electrolyte (NFE) for high-rate LIBs has yet to be developed. The solution to these commercial mishaps lies in the development of an NFE ...

  10. Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Without The Global Positioning System (GPS)

    SBC: GYROSYNC CORPORATION            Topic: A19CT003

    The growing reliance on GPS for position, navigation, and timing (PNT) capabilities is a vulnerability as GPS can be readily compromised. We propose an artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) driven toolkit - a system of systems of interoperable components and methods that can be seamlessly used as necessary and appropriate for the tactical requirement and area in question. This suite ...
