  1. Genetics and breeding of mealworms and their microbiomes for improved production

    SBC: Beta Hatch Inc.            Topic: SB163002

    The challenge of producing enough food for our growing planet requires incredible innovation. Insects are a sustainable alternative to existing agricultural inputs. However, to penetrate the $400B global feed industry, insects need to be produced both at...

  2. Enhanced Low-Power Transponder (ELT) for Spacecraft ID, Tracking, and Health Monitoring

    SBC: M42 Technologies, LLC            Topic: SB171015

    We propose to develop a system that will aid in the unique identification, accurate tracking, and state of health monitoring of satellites and other space objects. This system will consist of an Enhanced Low-Power Transponder (ELT) - a self-contained sm...

  3. Prosthesis Smart Alignment Tool- ProSAT

    SBC: Orthocare Innovations LLC            Topic: DHA17008

    This Phase 1 SBIR program will result in a proof of concept the Prosthetic Smart Auto-Alignment Tool or ProSAT, which addresses the need to facilitate rapid, accurate, controllable adjustment of the physical alignment of the prosthesis. We are proposing a novel approach to the problem by creating a hybrid sensor and smart tool system that is nearly universally applicable to existing modular prosth ...

  4. Smart Cervical Collar for Closed Loop Control of Intracranial Pressure

    SBC: Quadradyne Technologies, LLC            Topic: DHA17010

    This proposal presents a non-invasive device to reduce, and control, intracranial pressure in the event of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The device is compact, rugged, light, and easily transported by medics or civilian first responders in the field.

  5. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: CLOSTRA, INC.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  6. Photonic Switch for Laser Power Distribution

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N171013

    A very fast 1xN optical switch capable of handling high-optical power is proposed. It is designed for switching laser power from a central source to multiple outputs using photonic switch technology that does not have any mechanical moving parts. It is designed to have a very compact size and high-reliability operation suitable for airborne environment. The switching speed will be >10 W of optical ...

  7. Lightweight Self-Start System for T56 Engine Driven Aircraft

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N171028

    The Navy needs a small, self-contained, lightweight system for starting E-2D T56 engines to allow for remote field operations. We propose to develop a Rocket Fuel Starter (RFS) to meet Navy needs. Our RFS uses a liquid-fuel rocket engine to drive a turbine that generates shaft power to start the T56 engine. We project our RFS will fit in available spaces and will weigh significantly less than 200 ...

  8. Cavitation Peening for Improved Ballistic Performance

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: N171037

    A need exists to improve the ballistic response of armor for Littoral Combat Ships. Simply increasing armor thickness is unacceptable because the associated increase in weight and space would reduce vessel performance speed and range. Surface treatment techniques for current armor materials such as steel, aluminum and ceramic may improve armor performance significantly without an associated weight ...

  9. Fast Rise-time High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) Pulse Shaping

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N172135

    Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc. (EHT) is collaborating with researchers at the Pulsed Power and Power Electronics Center at Texas Tech University (TTU) to develop a high-power microwave switch that is capable of very fast rise times, adjustable pulse width, and high pulse repetition frequency (PRF). EHT has developed solid-state pulsed power systems that has the potential to improve the performanc ...

  10. High Bandwidth Redundant Communication Links for Small Satellites

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: A16079

    Small satellites have never lacked the capability to collect large quantities of operationally relevant data. The real limitation in fielding large constellations has been the inability to downlink the large quantities of data. Neither the ground station assets nor the high throughput communications subsystems have existed to close many point-to-point tight-beam links to low-Earth orbit. To satisf ...
