  1. Multimodal Non-Destructive Microfluidic Sorting of Microbes for Elemental Analysis

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: HR001120S001924

    Rare Earth Elements (REEs) are essential for modern electronics and defense systems, yet the US is dependent on foreign sources for these compounds. This proposed work will create an economical and efficient method for harvesting REE from domestic soil and waste sources by enabling high throughput methods of identifying microbes, in complex media, that are capable of uptaking REEs through biologic ...

  2. Algorithm Performance Evaluation with Low Sample Size

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA20C001

    The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...

  3. Highly Assured Secure (HAS) Data Storage Device

    SBC: TRUSTED SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: HR001120S001920

    A USB device is one of the most common mass storage devices. However, a UAS device is known to be vulnerable to many cyber threats.  The proposed effort is to develop a Highly Assured Secure (HAS) Data Storage Device.  HAS device is a mass storage solution to provide highly assured, trustworthy, and detectable data storage.

  4. 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. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cell Conversion and Differentiation

    SBC: IREPROGRAM, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  7. Forager

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: SB12A004

    Next Century Corporation will develop novel means to acquire data on patterns of exploration of web-based information. For the proposed effort, we will integrate fine-grained logging of activities across different search paths and develop new methods for extracting web content that provides and analyzes the broader context in which such activities take place. In addition, we will develop a robust ...

  8. PathEngine: A Platform To Automate the Integration of Data To Predict Pathogenic Potential

    SBC: Netrias, LLC            Topic: ST18C002

    New pathogens, both naturally occurring and adversary-engineered, are increasingly likely to emerge and represent a significant and growing risk to global health and security. These new threats often have limited genetic similarity to prior known pathogens and cannot be identified through standard genetic tests. The application of machine learning algorithms to phenotypic tests to predict pathogen ...

  9. Methane Harvesting for Seafloor Power Generation

    SBC: MARITIME APPLIED PHYSICS CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C005

    The US Navy, industry and the scientific community is using and developing a variety of AUVs, underwater sensors, and other systems that can be easily deployed and operated with minimal maintenance or recurring costs. A primary hindrance to the long-term implementation of these systems is the availability of in situ energy. The concepts presented herein focus on the harvesting of methane from seep ...

  10. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...
