  2. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  4. Continuous Monitoring of Natural Gas Infrastructure for Increased Community Resilience using Voltammetric Sensors

    SBC: FULLMOON SENSORS, INC.            Topic: None

    Fullmoon has the first chip-level sensors capable of identifying and quantifying molecules in the air. At the core of our technology are printed voltammetric sensors, which are operated using cyclic voltammetry, an electrochemical technique that probes for the redox potential, a unique signature of molecules. We have demonstrated this sensing principle for the detection of carbon monoxide and meth ...

  5. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  6. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  7. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  8. Multi-Functional Nanotube-Based Sensor Array for Detecting Blood Coagulation Defects

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: DHA19A001

    Defense Health Agency (DHA) is seeking a multi-functional diagnostic to determine blood coagulopathy in real time at point-of-care (POC). Blood coagulopathy, resulting in uncontrolled bleeding, is implicated in 80% of operating room deaths and 50% of trauma deaths. There are many types of coagulation defects, which need distinct interventions. Therefore, DHA wants prompt monitoring of the underlyi ...

  9. Development of the JoRT Platform for Realistic Joint Reduction Training

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA173002

    Joint reduction is a key skill and is a core competency for orthopedic surgeons deploying as part of a trauma team.Current training options are limited to classroom instruction on uninjured persons due to lack of a suitable training simulator. The first true reduction performed by medical providers is on actual patients. This method of instruction prevents the trainee from developing the comfort a ...

  10. Finger Pulse Oximeter for Patient Identification and Predictive Algorithms

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DHA172005

    In a multiple patient situation, the medics need all the help they can get. Monitoring several patients is a difficult task, and associating the vital signs data with the right patient is crucial. Providing medics with a tool to assist in this task can greatly reduce their workload and lead to better decisions of treatment or evacuation, thus reducing combat related soldier deaths.To address this ...
