  1. Microfabricated Broadband Connectors for Frequencies Above 100 GHz

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 100 GHz to 400 GHz is currently underutilized but an area of exciting promise. Although atmospheric attenuation is higher in this region, the high frequency enables higher bandwidth operation. Transmit and receive components are also small resulting in the potential for lightweight miniature systems. Sub-millimeter waves also have the unique ability ...

  2. Non-contact Inline Material Sensor for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Nanofiber Films

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PaneraTech is proposing a non-contact dual sensor for broadband and real-time characterization of thin nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Our solution offers several unique aspects that are ideal for this application. For instance, it uses a dual CPW sensor for low frequencies and free space transmission system for higher frequency band. Our proposed sensor system is also equipped with high ...

  3. Development of a Multiplexed Antigen Screening Platform for Detecting Evidence of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infections

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H05

    Tuberculosis (TB) is a re-emerging infectious disease threat worldwide. To protect the health of US military personnel, TB screen is required for military personnel at the time of service entrance. However, current TB screening methods TST and IGRA used in military population have their drawbacks in application such as high false positives and being heavily lab dependent. Here ADA Technologies, ...

  4. Development of an Alternative Screening Method for Detecting Evidence of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infections

    SBC: Bijhem Scientific            Topic: OSD11H05

    This Small Business Innovation research Phase I proposes the development of a practical and reliable in-vitro test for detecting the evidence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection as an alternative to the tuberculin skin test (PPD-TST) and to the interferon gamma release assays (IGRAs). The proposed methodology will be a powerful detection technology in clinical diagnosis owing to its dete ...

  5. Monitoring Metabolic Energy Expenditure Via the Prosthetics of Lower Extremity Amputees

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H07

    Limb loss affects approximately 1.9 million people in the United States, 400,000 of whom have amputations above the knee. It is well established that lower-limb amputees show greater metabolic demands during gait and more limited mobility compared to non-disabled individuals. At present, there is no lower-extremity prosthesis available that can monitor the metabolic costs of the amputee. The propo ...

  6. Apps for Rapid Epidemiological Analysis (AREA)

    SBC: IST Research Corp.            Topic: OSD11H17

    IST Research proposes the creation of the Disease Early Warning Sensor System. The IST Research Team will bring together considerable experience to bear on deploying technology in austere environments, developing android applications, hardening the android operating system, geospatial and temporal visualization of SMS based reporting and information collection, crowd-sourced data collections, and ...

  7. Digital SQUID Array for Portable Low-Field MRI System for Combat Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H18

    Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring very long averaging times to obtain reasonable spatial resolution. The use of large arrays of SQUIDs wo ...

  8. Medical Modeling and Simulation Based Training Return on Investment Decision Model

    SBC: MYMIC, L.L.C.            Topic: OSD11H19

    Modeling and simulation (M & S) technologies provide the capability for high-quality training in many areas of medicine while simultaneously reducing the costs and risks involved. However, M & S technologies require significant investment to realize their benefits, and it is crucial to have an appropriately designed system to best attain training objectives. The aim of this research is to develop ...

  9. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Phase I studies demonstrate that human adipose stem cells (ASCs) exhibit characteristics of chondrocytes when cultured in chondrogenic media (CM) and this is enhanced when they are first encapsulated in low viscosity, high mannuronate content alginate beads that are less than 200fYm in diameter containing 250 cells/bead. The microencapsulated cells express mRNAs for factors associated with chondr ...

  10. Bioactive Superporous Hydrogels with Vascular Channels for Muscle Tissue Engineering

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: OSD11H12

    There is a substantial clinical need in both civilian and battlefield injuries for the repair and regeneration of large-volume-loss skeletal muscle tissue injuries. Current standards of care rely on rotational tissue grafts and often result in substantial morbidity, pain, and disfigurement. Luna Innovations Incorporated proposes the development of a hierarchically organized, superporous hydrogel c ...
