  1. A Proposal to Develop an Automatic, Microfabricated Polymer Bilayer Air-Fluid Sampling Inlet

    SBC: Bomec, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A critical component of a biochemical sensor system for detection and analysis of airborne pathogens are mechanisms for automated acquisition and transport of an air sample from the sensor inlet to the analysis chamber. While considerable capability already exists for sampling and handling of macroscopic volumes of gas, formidable technological challenges needed to be overcome before microfabrica ...

  2. Ion Propulsion for MEMS Flight Vehicles (rev 7-1)

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel approach to the propulsion of very small, micro air vehicles is proposed in which electrostatic forces acting between an ion gas cloud and an appropriate anode are harnessed for thrust or lift. A means is proposed for the generation and maintenance of the ion gas from ambient air and for the regulation of the propulsor. Preliminary study indicates the new concept is valid only for air v ...

  3. A New Generation Virtual Reality Individual Portal


    We propose to build an energy extractive Individual Portal (I-Port) to the virtual world enabling the user to traverse a large virtual workspace in a very small real space. Using a commercial exercise treadmill, this device will improve virtual training, health maintenance and evaluation, and have a large market for education, recreation, and adversarial gaming. A motion capture, energy extracti ...

  4. High Conductivity, Low-Cost Aluminum Composite for Thermal Management

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Among composite materials, aluminum/graphite and copper/graphite composites are potentially leading materials for use in high-performance electronic systems. The use of aluminum matrix (Al/Gr) composites for packaging material, however, have been severely limited because of the raw material and fabrication costs of the composite. In order to produce an inexpensive packaging material that exhibit ...

  5. Multi-Modal Control for Automatic Vehicle Management Systems

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed research approches the problems of stability, operation mode transfer, and syatem monitoring for multi-modal ground vehicles. The research seeks to provide simple criteria and design frameworks that are applicable to the design of manymultimodal and autonomous vehicle designs. The development of design criteria and baseline methods for the design of multimodal autonomous vehicles. ...
