  1. Highly Scalable Multiplexed CRISPR Technologies for Medical, Industrial, and Agricultural Applications

    SBC: De Novo DNA            Topic: SB163003

    We propose to create transformative technologies to overcome several CRISPR-wide challenges that will broadly enable scalable, multiplexable gene editing & gene regulation with minimal off-target activity. Our technical solutions combine computational design of optimal CRISPR components, genetic circuits, and RNPs together with experimental validation. We will implement several demonstrative appli ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. Extending Shelf Life of Strawberries, Spinach, Kale and Lettuce via Non-Equilibrium Short-Pulsed Plasma Activated Water Fog

    SBC: AA Plasma LLC            Topic: DLA182002

    Current methods for food transportation and storage are insufficient in eliminating contamination threats from food-borne pathogens, resulting in frequent cases of foodborne illness or costly recalls. Perishable products within the DLAs subsistence supply chain are no exception to this problem. AAPlasma LLC proposes a non-equilibrium (cold) plasma-based solution that will continuously disinfect co ...

  7. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology: Measurement Tools for Quantum Information Processing

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: SB082007

    The special properties of quantum states make them attractive for emerging applications in quantum communication and computing. However, the very properties of quantum states that make them useful also make them difficult to measure. Quantum state tomography is a measurement tool which allows for complete characterization of quantum states. Although great progress has been made in researching quan ...

  8. A Low-Cost, High Performance Collodial Quantum Dot MWIR Focal Plane Array

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: ST13B002

    There is a growing need for the wider deployment of infrared cameras in various defense applications, from handheld to vehicle-mounted. Meeting this requires a low-cost imaging device that has low noise and high frame rates. Microbolometers largely fill this need in the longwave infrared regime, although they suffer from relatively slow response times and are near their technological performance l ...

  9. Generating Material Properties From Flight Representative Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: ST16C002

    High-speed flight vehicles commonly use carbon / carbon (C/C) and carbon / silicon carbide (C/SiC) for structural components. These materials are chosen because of their superior structural properties at elevated temperatures. Most often, their properties are characterized using flat and thin material test plates. While this approach is convenient, it is not guaranteed to yield material properties ...

  10. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...
