  1. Integrated, self-actuated, blood collection and biomarker purification device

    SBC: Tasso, Inc            Topic: SB122003

    Blood-based point-of-care (POC) diagnostics or remote diagnostics that require specialized equipment only available in centralized, commercial laboratories are currently limited by major logistical and technical barriers. Blood collection can be a traumatic, inconvenient, and inconsistent process that is based on decades-old technologies, such as the lancet-puncture, that are not amenable to new P ...

  2. Portable Microwave Cold Atomic Clock

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB141004

    ColdQuanta proposes to develop a MOT-based laser-cooled microwave atom clock prototype having a stability of at least 1E-12 for a 1 s integration time that can serve as a primary atomic frequency. Phase I focuses on the key challenges facing the development of a cold atom physics package commensurate with 1 liter total system size. We will design, build, and demonstrate an ultrahigh vacuum cell ...

  3. Portable Microwave Cold Atomic Clock

    SBC: Spectra Dynamics Inc            Topic: SB141004

    We present a technical approach for the design of a small, portable, microwave cold atomic clock that meets the frequency stability requirement of less than 1X10-12 at 1 s averaging time and less than 5X10-15 for an averaging time of 1 day in the following size weight and power requirements (SWaP). Our approach is based on a laser-cooled atom microwave fountain clock that uses precision microwave ...

  4. Automated Approaches to Cellular Engineering and Biomanufacturing

    SBC: Covitect Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    Genome-scale predictable cellular design and engineering of biomanufacturing systems is the overarching goal of DARPAs Living Foundries and 1000 Molecules programs and, if realized, will enable rapid engineering of living systems for a broad range of applications in biotechnology and pharmacology. However, constructing living cells with designed genome is an arduous task that is severely limited ...

  5. Electronic Component Fingerprinting to Determine Manufacturing Origin

    SBC: Clearmark Systems, LLC            Topic: SB133003

    This program will develop an automated, computer-assisted method for tracking a semiconductor device back to the fab that produced it. To accomplish this goal, we will measure characteristics of the device that are consistent within a given fab toolset, and compare the results to known authentic parts in order to establish a match. This technique will for the first time enable a simple inspectio ...

  6. High Performance Microminiature Free Space Shutter for CAMS

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB142005

    We propose to develop a MEMS-based optical shutter system with transition times faster than 10 microseconds and attenuations of at least 70 dB.The device will be designed for wavelengths between 780 and 894 nm, as needed for laser systems for cold-atom microsystems.Specific design features and techniques will be incorporated to trap and prevent the passage of stray light through the system.

  7. Adaptive Recognition-Primed Emergency Support (ARES) System

    SBC: ALPHATRAC, INC.            Topic: SB072006

    AlphaTRAC proposes to continue the research and development effort of the AlphaACT? SBIR Phase I Project. We will develop human dynamics (non-verbal) cues and social interaction-based courses of action and incorporate them into a customized version of the AlphaACT decision training platform. The new technology will be called AlphaACT SI.

  8. Low-Cost Retrofit Emissions Control in Off-Road Sources


    Considerable progress has been made in reducing emissions from stationary and highway sources. However, new emission standards require that new off-road (non-road) diesel engines achieve emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other species comparable to those from on-road sources. Additionally, biofuel (e.g., biodiesel) powered vehicles offer the potential for increased NOx emissions. There are cu ...

  9. A Portable Microreactor System to Synthesize Hydrogen Peroxide

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicI

    Hydrogen peroxide vapor (HPV) is an effective and well studied decontaminant for vehicles and buildings contaminated by hazardous chemical or biological materials. Unfortunately, the current technology for generating HPV requires 35 weight percent hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as a precursor, which is dangerous and cumbersome to transport and is classified by the Department of Transportation (DOT) as b ...

  10. Thermochemical Biofuels Production from Biomass Waste Materials

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    This project will develop and evaluate a new process for converting biomass waste into diesel fuel. The diesel made from biomass will be a direct substitute for ultra low-sulfur diesel (defined by ASTM D 975). The biomass waste will first be converted into pyrolysis oil and then upgraded to diesel. The process uses a new approach to upgrading pyrolysis bio oil and does not produce excessive by-pro ...
