  2. Acoustic Interference Rejection

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will determine the feasilibility of acoustic interference rejection techniques for a submarine acoustic intercept system. The signal processing techniques developed will permit the continuous tracking of active weapon sonars in the presence of interference from countermeasures and other sources. Existing submarine acoustic sensors will be used. Multiple emitter location techniq ...

  3. Labeless, Reagentless, Biosensor

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    The preponderance of biosensors under development today rely on labeling reagents such as fluorescent, radioisotopic or enzymatic tags. As a result, the added complexity of these reagents and their incorporation into the detection system has resulted in designs that are difficult to implement or that require significant sample preparation steps before introduction into the detection instrument. ...

  6. Superconducting tunable multipole bandpass filter with in-situ trim

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR project, HYPRES proposes to demonstrate a tunable lumped-element superconducting bandpass filter for transmit/receive isolation applications, using Josephson circuits for in situ trim and control. Such a filter will provide insertion loss below 1 dB and 60 dB out-of-band rejection in a filter which can be tuned over the range 500 MHz - 2 GHz. The project will take advantage o ...

  7. RNA Detector-Molecule Methodology for Microorganism Biodetectors

    SBC: Invitro Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current geopolitical strategies require effective warfare countermeasures to protect U.S. forces against biological and chemical threats. Today's molecular biology and immunological detection technologies cannot be used to produce automated biodetectors useable in the battlefield. New, improved detection technologies are needed to minimize the impact of chemical and biological weapons on Army per ...

  9. Induction Carburizing--A Novel Cost Effective, Environmentally Safe, Affordable Technology

    SBC: SANOVA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Carburizing of steels to improve wear resistance is an old but widely used process. Current furnace technologies are expensive because their extensive requirements for time, space, labor, materials, energy and maintenance, and are harmful to the enviroment due to active atmosphere and heat losses. Separate equipment is needed to establish desired properties in the part case and core. The proposed ...

  10. Lightweight, Regenerative MicroPCM Portable Environmental Control Systems (PECS) Garments

    SBC: Triangle Research and Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I program will explore the potential for a unique new paraffinic phase change material (PCM) to provide a lightweight, passive portable environmental control system (PECS). This program will also introduce the new concept of PCM self-regeneration within microcapsules attached to or within the textile fibers of the garment. Based upon our PCM materials and technologies developed ...
