  1. Development of a Fire-Resistant, Thermal Barrier Coating with Low-Temperature Flexibility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: A08T028

    Advanced Materials and Processes (AMP) can deliver a Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) with low temperature flexibility. This is possible because of a major breakthrough in hollow clay nanotube technology. Halloysite nanotubes (HNT™) have been shown to increase coating flexibility an order of magnitude by reinforcing the binder at the nanolevel. HNT have been filled with liquid flame retardant (F ...

  2. Cyclops

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A08041

    The Army needs smaller and cheaper precision weapon systems. Semi-Active Laser guidance (SAL), invented in the 1960’s at the Army Missile command, is a powerful approach to smart weapons. In the past, SAL seekers used quadrant detectors, narrow field-of-view optics, gimbals, and actuators. While very effective, they are expensive. Several programs are desperate for a low-cost solution. One drivi ...

  3. Branched DNA Diagnostic for Malaria Parasites

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08118

    The key to effective management of malaria is accurate diagnosis that is also rapid. The “gold standard” microscopy is time-consuming and labor-intensive and suffers from retirement of microscopic diagnostic experts and inaccurate slide reading. A field-deployable diagnostic method that is specific for the different malaria parasites and is capable of quickly processing potential patients wo ...

  4. Ante-Mortem TSE Diagnosis by Electric Cell-Substrate Impedance Sensing

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08T035

    Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) are responsible for fatal neurodegenerative diseases in humans, cattle, and sheep/goats. As TSEs can take many months and even years to present clinical symptoms, it is critical for food and contact safety to diagnose the disease at the earliest possible time point. A cell culture based system can offer the sensitivity and specificity required for a ...

  5. Cell-based High Throughput Screening of Compounds Improving Mitochondrial Energetics

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08T006

    Improving age-related decrease in cognitive and physical capabilities has tremendous potential for the civilian population and military personnel, including prolonged aptitude of highly-trained military personnel and lowering of healthcare costs. Mitochondria, the organelle responsible for energy production in eukaryotic cells, are directly involved in programmed cell death and associated to the ...

  6. Accurate and Reliable Rocket Thruster Technology

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: A08040

    In this SBIR project, a preliminary design of a highly accurate, highly repeatable impulse thruster will be completed. ASI, together with ATK, proposes to complete the preliminary design in parallel with the development of a comprehensive thruster model in a Monte Carlo environment that will account for every contributor to repeatability in the final product. Using modern uncertainty analysis te ...

  7. Interactive Cognitive Interface and Health Monitoring System

    SBC: CAMRIS INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: OSD08H06

    Soldiers coping with injuries such as Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (MCI/TBI) are in need of innovative solutions that will attempt to make their daily functioning easier while gaining independence. Even though soldiers with such injuries may be high functioning in some aspects of life, they still require a compensatory strategy for performing activities of daily living ...

  8. Micro-burner Based Flame Ionization Detectors for Micro-scale Gas Chromatographs

    SBC: Cbana Laboratories            Topic: A08T014

    Micro-Gas Chromatographs (micro-GC) have the potential of providing a fieldable device that could 1) identify chemical threats in a battlefield, 2) provide assessment of warfighter health status, chemical exposure, stress level, and hydration, but we need better detectors if this potential is to become a reality. The objective of the proposed work to develop a micro-flame ionization detector (mi ...

  9. Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) Network Detector and Traffic Analyzer

    SBC: DIGITAL RECEIVER TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A07110

    With domestic and international acceptance of the WiMAX protocol (IEEE 802.16), we can expect high growth in future deployments. This growth will enable widespread availability of low cost, high bandwidth, mobile data communications. The 802.16 standard has been amended to 802.16e (Mobile WiMAX) that enables cellular delivery of high speed data to mobile terminals. The deployment of Mobile WiMAX ...

  10. Electrostatic atomizing fuel injector for small scale engines

    SBC: Enabling Energy Systems            Topic: A08T012

    The goal of this proposal is to develop a fuel injection system for direct-injection, spark-ignition, small engines that provides tunable atomization and good fuel-air mixture with low power consumption, low weight penalty, and small space footprint. The proposed method injects electric charge into an electrically insulating liquid, such as JP-8, within a specific atomizer design. The primary atom ...
