  2. Socket Diagnostic Tool Innovation for Upper Extremity Prostheses

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: SB151001

    Despite the advancement of prosthetics design, there exists a lack of quantifiable diagnostic fitment information for assessing the characteristics of the socket-limb interface. The lack of diagnostic data yield improperly fitted, uncomfortable, and unstable sockets. Responding to the need to develop innovative diagnostic tools for socket-limb interface quantification, TRI/Austin proposes an elec ...

  3. Individual Water Ready Device

    SBC: HYDROGY, LLC            Topic: SB151002

    The primary objective of this proposed effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of a game changing desalination concept. Given the thermodynamic minimum energy required for seawater desalination as 0.70 Wh/L, the proposed desalination process has the potential to reach an energy efficiency as low as 1.2 Wh/L. The secondary objective is to demonstrate a human powered energy harvester that powers ...

  7. Low Cost Expendable Launch Technology

    SBC: FIREFLY SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: SB152008

    Conventional rockets all use a traditional bell nozzle. The nozzle represents lost weight from a payload point of view, but is necessary to direct thrust and ensure that the exhaust gas expands at the correct rate. However, this expansion velocity is dependent on the external air pressure, and for a rocket, that pressure is constantly changing. In other words, traditional bell nozzles are a compro ...

  8. Collaborative Interference Cancellation for Group Communications

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: SB151005

    To meet the critical need for military wireless communications to take place over large distances in the presence of interference, we propose to develop a collaborative group navigation and communication (COGNAC) system that will enable mobile platforms to collaboratively null interference in order to communicate from one collaboration group to another in anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) environmen ...

  9. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...
