  1. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) and Dr. Massoud Pedram at the University of Southern California (USC) have successfully completed a Phase I STTR effort for the development of a lithium ion (Li-ion)/ supercapacitor hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) to afford pulse power characteristics (projected ~10 kW/kg) in a high energy system (100-150 Wh/kg). The system is enabled via a constant cur ...

  2. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    During altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive and physical capacity degrades, compromising individual and team performance. Cognitive degradation is linked to falling brain energy levels, increased reliance on anaerobic energy production and lactate accumulation. Ketones are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies demonstrated that ...

  3. Wavelength-Agile Real Time Tabletop X-ray Nanoscope based on High Harmonic Beams

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: ST15C001

    Nanoscale, material sensitive, imaging techniques are critical for progress in many disciplines as we learn to master science and technology at the smallest dimensions — on the nanometer to atomic-scale. However, progress in both science and technology is becoming increasingly limited by the constraints of current imaging techniques and metrologies. Fortunately, by combining coherent extreme UV ...

  5. Highly Sensitive Flash LADAR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: T9

    To address the urgent need for 3D flash-lidar technology for landing on solar system bodies and for spacecraft rendezvous and docking with satellites, an effort is proposed to fabricate, characterize, and test a versatile, high-sensitivity InGaAs APD 3D flash lidar and to advance the technology-readiness level (TRL) of lidar technologies suitable for NASA mission requirements. Leveraging an existi ...

  6. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods, or for fabrication of small quantities of complex parts. One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made. This is especially critical given the rel ...

  7. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The problem addressed in this effort is to automatically learn historical ephemeris space catalog time, position, and velocity entity track update error uncertainties (i.e., without track error covariances) and to automatically (e.g., without expert event labeling) produce: – unmodeled non-gravitational space catalog update flags – abnormal unmodeled catalog update flags with abnorma ...

  8. Multifunctional Integrated Photonic Lab-on-a-Chip for Astronaut Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: T8

    IFOS is developing a multifunctional whole-blood analysis lab-on-a-chip platform for assessment of kidney health. The IFOS innovations are found in each subsystem, including photonic integrated circuits (PICs), microelectronics, and biochemical microfluidics. The unique differentiated design is expected to result in a low SWaP-C, highly manufacturable, and highly reliable on-demand measurement pla ...

  10. STTR Phase II: Deep Learning Technology For The Microscopic Analysis Of Stained Cells Using Unbiased Methods

    SBC: Stereology Resource Center, Inc            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is the development of software to help bioscientists analyze more tissue in less time and with higher accuracy and reproducibility. Currently, stereology studies require a trained technician to sit before a computer screen, making tedious manual counts (clicks) on hundreds to thousands of mic ...
