  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. Innovative Joining and Repair Methodologies Using Hybrid Textile Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N07T021

    Strength, durability and reliability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic properties, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature failure of adhesive bonded joints. The proposed work offers substantial enhancement ...

  5. GaN HEMTs for Broadband RF Power Amplifier Technology

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: N07155

    GaN FETs are capable of very high power levels relative to Si or GaAs technologies. This high power density leads to very broadband capability as needed for the 2MHz-2GHz JTRS radio program. Nitronex has commercialized AlGaN/GaN HEMTs on silicon substrates. As such, reliable devices and accurate device models are available for sub-4GHz operation in class AB. During this Phase I, we will demonstrat ...

  6. 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. Aircraft High-Power Semiconductor Line Contactors

    SBC: HIGHER POWER ENGINEERING            Topic: N05015

    Proposal to access modification of current static transfer switch (STS) product technology for military aircraft operation. High-speed STS in the 120/208 voltage range have been available for government use for several years. However these 60Hz switches will require significant control and packaging modifications for military aircraft installation. Higher Power Engineering (HPE) has significant ...

  10. Automated Mine Neutralization Vehicle

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N05128

    We propose a small expendable neutralizer (XN) UUV capable of autonomously neutralizing proud and volume mines. XN will be compatible with legacy launchers and readily deployed from submerged, surface or air platforms. It will be capable of long range submerged deployment, as well as persistent station keeping. It will employ low cost/power guidance and control technology, yet home precisely. ...
