  1. Visual Relative Navigation via Intelligent Ephemeral Relationships (VRNIER)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, the they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many ...

  2. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

  3. Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST092003

    Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...

  4. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHA19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause o

  5. Pathogen Classification Tool (PaCT)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PaCT, leveraging our related past work in computer vision and machine learning. Drawing from techniques used in ExPATSS, a Phase II SBIR effort slated for transition to the Naval fleet, PaCT will perform bacterial characterization using features derived from the phenotype of the bacteria. PaCT will predict bacterial characteristics such as pathogenicity, antibiotic resistan ...

  6. Parametric Higher Order Abstract Structural Element for Aircraft Design (PHAST-AID)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: ST13A006

    NextGen Aeronautics (NextGen) and University of Southern California (USC, RI) team of experienced composite materials, structural design, and analyses personnel are responding to the opportunity to develop stochastically verified composite structural desi

  7. Multi-Functional Nanotube-Based Sensor Array for Detecting Blood Coagulation Defects

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: DHA19A001

    Defense Health Agency (DHA) is seeking a multi-functional diagnostic to determine blood coagulopathy in real time at point-of-care (POC). Blood coagulopathy, resulting in uncontrolled bleeding, is implicated in 80% of operating room deaths and 50% of trau

  8. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  9. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion has the potential to significantly improve the specific fuel consumption for gas turbine engines by realizing a pressure rise through the combustor as opposed to a pressure drop. One drawback to this form of combustion is the cycl

  10. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion (PGC) offers means to a more efficient energy use in propulsion and power generation devices. Integrating PGC concepts in gas turbine engines often results in highly unsteady flow conditions at turbine inlet. Further, the backpres
