  4. Selection of blood-brain barrier penetrating single domain antibodies as medialcountermeasures for viral induced encephalitis

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: CBD161004

    Alphaviruses pose significant risks to warfighters where encephalitic virus infection can lead to death. There is no effective treatment foralphavirus induced encephalitis and countermeasures are of high importance. Single domain antibodies (sdAb) are low molecular weightengineered antibody fragments composed of a single heavy-chain variable domain which have proven easier to manipulate and re-eng ...

  5. Phase-Cancelled, Broadband, Graphene-based Impedance Sensor

    SBC: Advratech            Topic: CBD14102

    An innovative phase-cancelled radio frequency/microwave graphene-based impedance chemical gas sensor has been demonstrated in Phase I with the record high sub-ppb sensitivity of NH3 and DMMP in air. Our sensor shows excellent selectivity for sensing NH3 and DMMP in a complex environment, and is capable of in-situ multiplexed sensing. In Phase II, the sensor will be fully integrated on a 3 glass wa ...

  6. Braided Composite Technologies for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: A & P TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A209

    The Phase 2 effort will be used to advance the material and design technologies that were explored in the Phase 1 study of hybrid gears. In this hybrid approach, the conventional metallic web is replaced with a composite element. This alternative design generates a significant weight reduction and the potential for the reduction of noise and vibration. The Phase 2 program will make the first larg ...

  8. ANSIBLE: A Network of Social Interactions for Bilateral Life Enhancement

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H1203

    Studies in ground-based analogs of Isolated and Confined Environments (ICE) have identified sensory monotony and social isolation as threats to crew psychological well-being. Further, the lack of real-time communications in future missions will impact crew interactions with their support systems, i.e. family, friends, and colleagues, are critical. ANSIBLE (A Network of Social Interactions for Bi ...
