  1. Novel Extensible Design Approaches for Advanced Aircraft Composite Structural Architectures (MSC P4135)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: ST13A006

    Among the factors that inhibit the use of composite materials in both general aviation aircraft and DoD platforms are the high cost of engineering and the cost of certification. Unless manufacturers can control risk when introducing new materials and pro

  2. Novel schemes for highly reliable aerospace electromechanical primary actuation systems

    SBC: LCDRIVES CORP.            Topic: SB132005

    There is a need to achieve 10^-9 reliability for actuators for critical aerospace applications and this precludes single point failure for all but the simplest and most reliable electrical and mechanical components. LC Drives proposes a method of constructing a high reliability linear actuator for critical aerospace applications that is designed such that jams caused by conventional electrical a ...

  3. Looking Glass

    SBC: Intific, Inc.            Topic: 004

    Looking Glass is an immersive, story-driven game experience that enables computer science education for students K-12. It presents learning in a game-based series of challenge levels that permit a high degree of player choice in tailoring educational progression and adapting game systems that present both STEM and SEL interactions. Gameplay occurs within a futuristic Wonderland, where proficiency ...

  4. Improved Dried Biological Specimen Materials, Recovery and Processing for Diagnostics

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: SB112005

    The dried blood spot (DBS) method is an alternative to venipuncture. The available data indicates that the DBS method is both precise and accurate for a diverse range of compounds. We discovered that proprietary additives vastly improve extraction of proteins in DBS using electrospray. Our unexpected results appear to dramatically increase analyte recovery concentration while reducing DBS prep, an ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use are tending toward robots collaborating directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS LLC            Topic: SB062015

    Development of new short-wave infrared imaging sensors with signal processing electronics on the same substrate is critical for a number of military and commercial applications. The objective of this research is to develop a new generation of Ge-on-Si p-n heterojunction photodiodes that will culminate in a demonstration of a 64 x 64-pixel infrared imaging array. These photodiodes, whose feas ...
