  1. A cost-effective bioreactor to advance functional tissue engineering of cartilage

    SBC: APEX BIOMEDICAL COMPANY, LLC            Topic: NIAMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoarthritis (OA) is the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States. A clinical goal in the treatment and prevention of OA is to develop replacement cartilage using tissue engineering (TE) technologies. Although TE cartilage presently lacks the mechanical stability of native cartilage, studies have demonstrated that mechanical stability can be e ...

  2. A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel Capabilities

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT033

    Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...

  3. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  4. A Home Exercise Program (DVD) for Women with Infants and Young Children

    SBC: KLEIN BUENDEL, INC            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Becoming a mother is a significant transition in a woman's life. This transition can precipitate major changes in health behaviors, like physical activity. Once a woman has a child she is much less likely to participate in regular, moderate to vigorous physical activity compared to women without children. Thus, new mothers are at risk for future weight gain and ...

  5. A Self-Regulating Freezable Heat Exchanger for Spacecraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T601

    A spacecraft thermal control system must keep the vehicle, avionics and atmosphere (if crewed) within a defined temperature range. Since water is non-toxic and good for heat transport, it is typically used as the coolant that circulates within the crew cabin boundary. This loop then interfaces with another low freeze point fluid, such as ammonia, for transport of heat to a radiator where the tempe ...

  6. A Synthetic Human Cytomegalovirus Vaccine Platform

    SBC: TOMEGAVAX, INC.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to synthesize, based on genomic sequence information, a human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) strain with demonstrated ability to establish persistent infection in sero-positive individuals. The resulting synthetic product will form the basis for the development of attenuated HCMV vaccines. Innovative synthetic biology methods will overcome ...

  7. A universal framework for non-deteriorating time-domain numerical algorithms in Maxwell's electrodynamics

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: A13AT008

    The project will remove a key difficulty that currently hampers many existing methods for computing unsteady electromagnetic waves on unbounded regions. Numerical accuracy and/or stability may deteriorate over long times due to the treatment of artificial outer boundaries. We propose to develop a universal algorithm and software that will correct this problem by employing the Huygens'principl ...

  8. Acute-infarct selective cardiac MRI contrast agent

    SBC: ELGAVISH PARAMAGNETICS, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant The overall goal of this project is to demonstrate the ability of our acute myocardial infarct selective paramagnetic contrast agent Gadolinium ABE DTTA to differentiate between acute and chronic infarcts in a reliable manner using contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging ceMRI In our Phase I data we have shown that Gd ABE DTTA exclusively highlight ...

  9. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT02

    Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...

  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 ...
