  2. Development of biological based nanoparticles for improved smoke/obscurant formulations

    SBC: GENEXPRESS INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: A11aT026

    Studies have shown the potential health and environmental hazards associated with hexachloroethane (HC) and terephthalic (TA) smoke/obscurants. In order to avoid using these materials, new chemical formulations are needed to address toxicological concerns and yet still maintain Grenade Figure of Merit (FOM) requirements. GeneXpress Informatics (GXI), Dr. John Conkling, Adjunct Professor of Chemis ...

  3. Compressive Sampling Video Sensor for Change Detection

    SBC: Inview Technology Corporation            Topic: A12aT007

    InView and its close partner Rice University are world leaders in CS imaging algorithms and CS imaging sensor development. Over the last 8 years, there has been impressive progress on imaging architectures that seek to reduce the amount of data sensed by exploiting signal priors and task-specific imaging. We propose to leverage these latest advances in compressive sensing and computational imaging ...

  4. Portable Pollen Analyzer

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: A12aT018

    We propose to leverage the expertise of Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) in building highly sensitive, selective, portable and versatile GC/DMS instruments, to create a system to uniquely identify a pollen species based on its VOC profile. This project will determine which VOCs shall be collected and how many pollen grains are needed in order to increase the confidence of accurately identifying a spat ...

  5. Self-Powered Biosensor for Water Toxicity Monitoring

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A10aT025

    Contamination of water supplies with toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) is a major concern for the U.S. military due to their worldwide prevalence and accessibility. Traditional, analyte-specific approaches are unfeasible to detect the approximately 70,000 potential TIC contaminants. Biologically-based sensors have the potential to provide general information on whether a water source is contamin ...

  7. Activated Reactants to Reduce Fuel Cell Overpotentials

    SBC: JSJ Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10aT011

    he current produced in electrochemical galvanic cells is primarily dependent on the rate of the electrode reactions where the cell's anode is less negative, supplying less energy than thermodynamically predicted, and the cell's cathode is less positive, supplying less energy than thermodynamically predicted. Reduction of electrochemical overpotentials in electrochemical systems has been ...

  8. Conducting Stress-Strain Analysis by Remote Sensing

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A11aT003

    Cracks and loose fasteners are continuing problems on H-60 helicopters causing: unexpected downtime; reduced availability to warfighters; increased risk; high expenses; and time lost. The proposed embedded system would provide early detection and assessment of loose fasteners and strain allowing planned repairs and mitigating problems. TRI developed the LAHMP family of low power, lightweight, ...

  10. Path Optimizing Air Current LADAR (POACL)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: A12021

    Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) and Texas A & M University (TAMU) propose a Path Optimized Air Current LADAR whose sensor is composed of SPEC Gen IV LADAR seeker modified for coherent Doppler operation allowing air current Doppler detection beyond 3km in 3D pixels (voxels) in a 90 degree cone. This feeds an algorithm package which determines the optimal flight path to avoid bad ...
