  1. Point of Injury Sampling Technology for Battlefield Molecular Diagnostics

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: SB111001

    In this project Optofluidics, Inc. proposes to develop the Molecular Medic a point-of-care device for sample collection, processing, and quantification of blood-borne biomarkers. The technology is based on (1) a finger prick assay, (2) a capillary-driven blood filtration system, (3) a novel"nanofluidic collapse"protein concentration technique and (4) a mutliplexable, reconfigurable, ultrasensiti ...

  2. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  3. GENNET: Advanced System for Synthesis of High Fidelity Social Networks to support SHIELD

    SBC: CARLEY TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB112004

    Our objective is to provide a semi-automated system to generate and verify scalable, high fidelity, multi-dimensional, social networks with realistic distributional, temporal and spatial characteristics as networks and as event sequences. This enables the user to generate networks varying in size, node attributes, geo-temporal characteristics, consistency with other networks, and reflection of kno ...

  4. Artificial Intelligence Software to Tutor Literary Braille to the Blind and Visually Impaired

    SBC: Quantum Simulations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Braille is the primary medium of written communication for persons who are blind. Prior research shows that Braille literacy strongly correlates with stronger reading habits and the pursuit of higher education, whereas Braille illiteracy negatively impacts students' academic performance and ability to navigate the everyday world. A recent report found that there has been a dramatic declin ...

  5. Rapid Identification of Bacterial Virulence Factors

    SBC: VITAL PROBES, INC.            Topic: SB111002

    Rapid Virulence Factor Discovery System (RVFDS) is virulence factor-discovery platform in which all of the genes of a pathogen are expressed generating a random expression library (REL). The REL is then screened for the presence of potential virulence factors with an array of pull-down assays that employ components of the host"s extracellular matrix, mucus, and basement membrane as bait. The hos ...

  6. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...

  7. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    Despite excellent recent progress in path planning, current state-of-the-art planners are still incapable of operating robustly in environments that are both cluttered and highly dynamic. The challenge is two-fold. First, predicting the trajectories of dynamic obstacles (i.e., cars, humans, aircraft) is very noisy. As a result, to achieve robust execution, perception modules need to provide a rich ...

  8. Multiferroic Approach to Heat Pumps

    SBC: Strategic Polymer Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SB091001

    In this SBIR Phase II program, Strategic Polymer Sciences, Inc., teaming up with Prof. Qiming Zhang at Penn State, will further optimize the class of polar-fluoropolymers to meet the operation requirement for the heat pumps used for the microclimate cooling systems for soldier in the battlefield. We will investigate a novel design of a solid-state heat pump which exploits both giant electrocaloric ...

  9. PVT Handheld App to Provide Warfighters with Immediate Feedback About Their Readiness to Perform

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    This project will achieve a handheld app to deliver the brief, 3-minute Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT) to provide immediate objective feedback to warfighters (and commanding officers) about their ability to sustain attention to mission critical tasks (e.g., route clearance, IED detection). It will be based on our vigilance testing technology that has been heavily validated to be sensitive to fat ...

  10. High Density Power Converter Electronics

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: SB101013

    The proposed solid-state (non-magnetic) DC-DC converter technology offers the military a completely different approach to converters for ballistics weapon systems that has important advantages over conventional power conditioning for projectile weapons systems. We are proposing to translate this new technology all the way through to demonstrated fuze hardware that includes addressing both risk re ...
