  1. High-Throughput Manufacturing Methods for Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 9010368R

    This project focuses on developing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent that may increase the detection of tagged cells by a factor of 10-100. The ability to noninvasively track specifically labeled (tagged) cells, enables a researcher or medical treatment professional to dynamically monitor the delivery and targeted application of medicinal and bio-reactive agents.

  2. A Tool for Building Semantically Interoperable Specification and Standards

    SBC: XSB INC.            Topic: 9010273R

    Standards and specifications are widely used in government and industry to define requirements for products and processes and insure interoperability, safety, and quality of industrial and domestic products. Specifications and standards documents almost always cross-reference other standards and specification. Taken together, the web of interdependent standards forms an immensely important knowled ...

  3. Advanced Solid-State Joining Processes for 2219 Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: Z601

    Thermal Stir Welding (TSW) advances the more conventional Friction Stir Welding (C-FSW) process by separating the primary process variables of metal stirring and forging from the control of the workpiece temperature. The independent heating is obtained by placing an induction coil in front of a specially modified tool to bring the workpiece to the appropriate joining temperature. However, studie ...

  4. Accelerating Memory-Access-Limited HPC Applications via Novel Fast Data Compression

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: S501

    A fast-paced continual increase on the ratio of CPU to memory speed feeds an exponentially growing limitation for extracting performance from HPC systems. Ongoing developments and trends make it clear that this ratio will keep increasing over the next decade. Breaking this memory wall is one of the most important challenges that the HPC community faces today. In this project we introduce novel and ...

  5. Dynamic State-Based FM Design and Analysis Tool

    SBC: ODYSSEY SPACE RESEARCH L L C            Topic: S505

    Odyssey proposes a new fault management planning and design tool and methodology that uses state-based simulations with programmable dynamic state definitions to provide early assessments of fault management system scope and cost. The tool will utilize models developed in SysML to capture system characteristics and relationships between system components as well as mapping of functionality to req ...

  6. Adaptive Resource Estimation and Visualization for Planning Robotic Missions

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: T1101

    NASA's future human exploration missions will include remotely operated rovers performing surface exploration and science, as well as free-flyers to reduce the need for human Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA). As astronauts move deeper into space, it will be necessary for them to manage these robotic assets with less support from ground controllers. A flexible approach is needed to build and revise p ...

  7. A low cost, secure radio communications system for UAVs

    SBC: SCI_ZONE, INC.            Topic: A202

    sci_Zone, Inc is seeking to develop the LinkStar-AV, an inexpensive, secure, and reliable satellite based radio system for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The LinkStar-AV architecture treats the radio system as a secure node on the internet through the GlobalStar satellite communications network, providing continuous coverage between the UAS and ground. Control and monitoring is provided by an ...

  8. Radiation Hardened ARM Micro Controller Module

    SBC: Silicon Space Technology Corporation            Topic: S309

    Every CubeSat design is different with different requirements. However the number of similarities between CubeSat designs is greater than between any two larger spacecraft. Leveraging these similarities and by applying a modular design approach we can develop a small family of motherboards that can fulfill the needs of any CubeSat mission. The computing elements of a 1-3U motherboard and a 6U mo ...

  9. Manufacture of Monolithic Telescope with a Freeform Surface

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: S204

    Monolithic freeform telescopes offer the potential to positively address the size, weight and vibration concerns associated with flight telescope systems. We propose to prove feasibility that our optics manufacturing process is capable of producing of a freeform optical telescope system by manufacturing and testing four optical surfaces on four sides of a single high purity optical material. The r ...

  10. Miniature HD6D Navigation and Rendezvous LIDAR & Software

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: S305

    Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation and Texas A&M University propose a miniature, long range, LIDAR for navigation and rendezvous. The HD6D imaging consists of high resolution, rapid framing 3D LIDAR and RGB camera images fused to give an HD resolution image. The LIDAR output and RGB camera output feed TAMU feature tracking algorithms which give 6DOF relative pose information to all bodie ...
