  1. Establishing Cavitation as a Damage Mechanism for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Blast

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: SB082007

    The leading risk facing our soldiers in Iraq is an improvised explosive device (IED). IED attacks on vehicles create an extreme shock environment that has been linked to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). While the damage mechanisms that cause TBI remain elusive, several researchers have speculated that the damage mechanisms of stress and strain associated with non-war-related TBI may not sufficiently ...

  3. Effective Multi-core Software Development

    SBC: ALLOY COMPUTING, LLC            Topic: SB072010

    Multi-core processors pose a significant challenge for software application developers. This is because the vast majority of algorithms and applications have been - and continue to be - developed using methodologies and techniques that assume sequential runtime execution. The key to efficiently and effectively leveraging multi-core processors is the ability to expose, extract, and exploit concurr ...

  4. Optically Reflecting Flexible Membrane

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072036

    Military imaging optics, such as rifle scopes, spotter scopes, and optics found on unmanned vehicles could be substantially better if the mechanical movement of optics for focus and zoom could be eliminated, without creating new problems associated with the rugged and harsh environment. The technology of liquid lenses has surfaced as a possible solution, but these lenses have problems with enviro ...

  5. Metamaterials Lens

    SBC: DMS Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB072035

    We provide a novel approach to realizing negative index lenses and lenslet arrays at optical frequencies using a naturally occurring material such as cis-vitamin A, a constituent in some commercially available cod-liver oils. This form of vitamin A has been recently found in the eyes of lobsters and hypothesized to be responsible for negative index lensing in their superposition eyes. The propos ...

  8. Universal Sample Preparation Device for Biological Detection

    SBC: Luminex Corporation            Topic: SB082012

    Reliable sample preparation from a variety of complex matrices remains one of the most challenging problems facing biological detection in the field. This is especially true for isolation of nucleic acids from an environmental or clinical sample. A clean nucleic acid sample, free from contaminating materials such as cell debris, dirt and inhibitory chemicals, is required to ensure the robust perfo ...

  9. Versatile Miniature Silicon WDM Modulators for Complex Modulation Formats

    SBC: Morton Photonics Incorporated            Topic: ST081012

    This program will transfer technology created at the Johns Hopkins University to Morton Photonics, additionally creating novel new devices and systems approaches in an ongoing collaboration. The focus is on the design, fabrication and testing at the system level of a number of novel active-silicon microring resonator based WDM modulators. These devices will be wavelength-selective WDM modulators; ...
