  1. Induction of Triploidy and Gynogenesis in Cobia (Rachycentron canadum)

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 8110

    Cobia (Rachycentron canadum) exhibit differential growth rates between the sexes, with females growing faster than males.  Sex determination mechanisms have not been elucidated for this species, nor are there any literature reports regarding the induction of sterility through triploidy or attempts at generating uniparental inheritance. The research outlined in this proposal will establish pr ...

  2. Chemometric Support for Temperature-programmed Sensing System

    SBC: Eigenvector Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Temperature Programmed Sensing (TPS) system developed at NIST presents many opportunities and unique challenges. The data output from the system can be quite complex and there are many opportunities to optimize the system for specific sensing scenarios. We propose a program aimed at characterizing the system so that potential problems (such as system drift) can be solved early so that the full ...

  5. The Terminator Tape Low-Cost Deorbiting System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF083198

    TUI proposes to develop a Terminator Tape deorbit module that will utilize both aerodynamic drag enhancement and passive electrodynamic drag to enable spacecraft to comply with post-mission orbital lifetime restrictions while minimizing cost, mass, volume, and footprint impacts to the spacecraft.  At the completion of the satellites mission, this module will deploy a several-hundred meter length ...

  8. Coherence Collapse- Speckle Reduction at the Laser Source

    SBC: Microvision, Inc.            Topic: AF083233

    Laser projection systems deliver the highest resolution, contrast ratios, color purity, and screen uniformity as compared to other display technologies used in flight simulation but suffer from an image artifact called speckle that manifests as random variations in the image intensity resulting from interference of many projected and scattered coherent laser light waves.  Contractor proposes a sp ...

  9. Photochemical Tissue Bonding for Military Medical Applications

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: AF07T033

    As described in our Phase I proposal: the overall goal is to develop a complete system for micro-anastomosis of blood vessels. This involves (1) a unique laser system that uses water as the absorbing chromophore, (2) a clinically useful handpiece that is appropriate for microsurgery, (3) a novel albumin stent to support the vessel during anastomosis, (4) in vitro testing of the device to assess th ...

  10. Optical Switching Fabric

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083209

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical switching fabric technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. Specifically, this program will evaluate two OptiComp candidate optical transceiver technologies against a Serial Rapid IO switching fabric. A down-selection to one optical transceiver technology will be made. Then, a simulation of that Serial ...
