  1. Cognitive Assistance Tools for Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: AT SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: SB072011

    We propose to develop a critical enhancement to an existing interactive task guidance system, integrating the capability to utilize data from sensors and control actuators. The system will allow caregivers or rehabilitation professionals to incorporate sensors and actuators into a task script in order to detect task state; detect user state; detect environmental context; detect safety risks; or pa ...

  2. Nanotechnology-Enhanced Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: SB072001

    Chlorine gas was first used as a weapon during World War I and has reemerged as a threat in Iraq compounding the dangers from existing improvised explosive devices. One of the significant challenges with preventing attacks that involve toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) like chlorine, ammonia is that they have genuine civilian uses for water treatment, in refrigeration systems, and others, that m ...

  3. Novel Nanofluidics-Based Sensor System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB062001

    We propose to develop a nanofluidics-based biosensor system for detection and quantitation of biological threat agents. The proposed system will harness the potential of recently discovered nanofluidic phenomena, not possible in microfluidic/capillary systems, to enhance rapid and sensitive sample preparation and detection. Specifically, we will develop a nanofluidics-based device to separate and ...

  4. Optically Reflecting Flexible Membrane

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072036

    Military imaging optics, such as rifle scopes, spotter scopes, and optics found on unmanned vehicles could be substantially better if the mechanical movement of optics for focus and zoom could be eliminated, without creating new problems associated with the rugged and harsh environment. The technology of liquid lenses has surfaced as a possible solution, but these lenses have problems with enviro ...

  5. Passive Unitized Regenerative Fuel Cell for Very High Altitude Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: SB072041

    Practical use of a unitized regenerative fuel cell (URFC) for solar powered aircraft and similar applications has been limited due to a lack of proven technology designed for the mission requirements. The concept of the static feed unitized regenerative fuel cell, successfully demonstrated in the laboratory in the DARPA/NRL Water Rocket program and two NASA SBIR contracts provides a strong basis ...

  6. Metamaterials Lens

    SBC: DMS Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB072035

    We provide a novel approach to realizing negative index lenses and lenslet arrays at optical frequencies using a naturally occurring material such as cis-vitamin A, a constituent in some commercially available cod-liver oils. This form of vitamin A has been recently found in the eyes of lobsters and hypothesized to be responsible for negative index lensing in their superposition eyes. The propos ...

  7. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of a path planning module that makes use of time-bounded lattices to avoid potential collisions in dynamic environments. The challenge of planning in a dynamic environment is two-fold. First, tracking and predicting the trajectories of dynamic obstacles (e.g., cars, humans, and aircraft) is very noisy. Second, planning with dynamic obstacles requ ...

  8. Light-Weight, Efficient and Quiet 10 hp Class Modular Heavy Fuel Engine

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082010

    The project aims to develop a strategy for a small, modular heavy fuel engine in the 10 hp class, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful engine that offers light weight, high efficiency and quiet operations. For the Phase 1, the project tasks inc ...

  9. Novel Neural-Electrical Interfaces for Neural Device Control

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: ST081002

    A new method of manufacturing of deep brain stimulation devices is proposed. We will use proprietary method of processing of carbon nanotubes into ultrastrong and highly conductive thin sheets. Flexibility of the sheets and special electrode design will make possible effective integration of the designed implants into the brain tissues. This will greatly reduce inflammation which will be tested ...

  10. Spatial Control of Crystal Texture

    SBC: POM GROUP, INC.            Topic: SB072005

    Single-crystal blades have proven to have longer thermal and fatigue life, and can be directly fabricated by laser with thinner walls. However, the benefits of single-crystal over conventionally cast and directionally solidified components critically depend on avoiding the introduction of casting defects, such as stray grains, freckles, or deviations from the required crystal orientation. Laser- ...
