  1. Multi-Zone Flow Through Membrane and Reagents for Onsite Detection of Domoic Acid

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 832

    There is a need for a simple, affordable method for measuring domoic acid in the field. This project will develop a rapid, onsite kit for domoic acid featuring a filter membrane that produces a readable color response without need for instrumentation. The filter membrane contains three or more zones with different assay characteristics in close proximity. These zones will indicate different co ...

  2. Computational Fluid Dynamics Co-processing for Unsteady Visualization

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL            Topic: A07010

    This research aims first to evaluate current techniques to extract visual information for a large unsteady rotorcraft CFD simulation. Next, the same operations will be performed in parallel using the same CFD data, decomposed on a modern cluster computer. Then, Python-based scripting will be employed to automate these operations. Lastly, co-processing of the same simulation, linking the visualizat ...

  3. A High Speed Towed Magnetic Array for In-Road Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices Employing Optimized Magnetic Map Differencing

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: A07169

    This proposal describes an active electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor array that can operate at a sampling rate of 750Hz, corresponding to 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) in distance at a moving speed of 60 mph. At low frequencies (below a few kHz), an EMI sensor is basically a magnetometer that responds to susceptibility targets (i.e., ferrous objects). The main difference is that, while a magnetometer us ...

  4. Short-Range Detection of Radio Transceivers for Physical Security

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: A07051

    The ubiquitous nature of personal, wireless communications devices represents a daunting threat to the protection of secure facilities. The ever present push for smaller devices complicates the efforts of physical security organizations to determine if personnel entering a facility have one or more devices in their possession with a cursory physical inspection. Miniaturization of wireless device ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
