  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  3. Diagnostic / Prognostic System for Tactical Power Sources

    SBC: NOREGON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A05077

    Maintenance on Army Tactical Power Systems (TPS's) is currently performed at regular intervals regardless of actual usage or operating conditions - wasting resources servicing systems that do not need maintenance, and missing opportunities to prevent catastrophic failures. The Army seeks to 1) improve maintenance efficiency and effectiveness by servicing systems based on actual usage and 2) imple ...

  4. Keratin Bioceramic Antibiotic Putty (KBAP) for Bone Regeneration

    SBC: PLUREON CORP.            Topic: A04190

    Infection in areas of bone injury are a serious consideration in the field of trauma surgery and orthopaedic medicine. The combination of regenerative medicine and controlled drug delivery offers great potential to improve on the current standard of care. Presently, bone infection secondary to osteomyelitis and non-union are treated in a two-stage protocol wherein the first step requires placeme ...

  5. Advanced Biomechanical and Physiological Monitoring System for Amputees and Rehabilitating Personnel

    SBC: TENXSYS, INC.            Topic: OSD05H11

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a health and motion monitoring sensor and analysis system to support the return of military personnel with prosthetic devices to active duty. DoD is allowing increasing numbers of Soldiers with prosthetics to return to active duty if they are performance capable, minimizing the loss of their valuable core expertise to the services. There are significant cha ...

  6. Mechanistic Studies of Spore Killing Using Variable Frequency Microwaves

    SBC: Lambda Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A05T010

    The overall objective of this proposal is to characterize the molecular mechanism by which variable frequency microwave technology (VFM) inactivates bacterial spores. The long-term practical goal is to produce a device capable of eliminating contamination by microbial/viral/biological based biological warfare bioterrorism agents. Considerable scientific uncertainty exists regarding the molecular ...

  7. Insensitive Munitions Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: A05201

    Insensitive munitions (IM) design and testing for propulsion systems is hindered both by high test costs and the complexity of propellant responses to IM stimuli. Modeling and simulation tools for predictions of IM hazards are under development that characterize many of the pertinent phenomena, including damage sensitization to reaction and delayed-onset detonation. Such tools can provide many b ...

  8. Prognostic Wear Prediction Tool for BlackHawk Hanger Bearings

    SBC: Sentient Science Corporation            Topic: A04077

    Hanger bearing failures occur unexpectedly and have resulted in loss of aircraft and life in both military and civilian rotorcraft. New Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) that are currently being demonstrated on the UH-60 include sensing capabilities that offer the potential to diagnose and predict hanger bearing problems with sufficient lead time to prevent catastrophic failure. However, ...
