  1. Inhibition of Biofilm Formation Using Novel Nanostructured Surfaces

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: T501

    Biofilms are ubiquitous in the environment. Few surfaces resist biofilm formation, most promote it. Biofilm formation poses problems in water systems as they can clog pipes and pores, block filters, reduce heat transfer, and in general restrict flow. Their metabolic products can aid corrosion, even of stainless steel. In potable water systems, both their metabolic products and the bacteria or ...

  2. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  3. Highly Sensitive Photon Counting Detectors for Deep Space Optical Communications

    SBC: Amplification Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S503

    A new type of a photon-counting photodetector is proposed to advance the state-of the-art in deep space optical communications technology. The proposed detector would operate at 1064 and 1550 nm, and combine high speed of operation with very gain and ultra low noise. The minimal expected parameters are a bandwidth of over 500 MHz (10 GHz might be possible), internal gain of over 1000 (100,000 exp ...

  4. Large-Area, Self-Sufficient, Low-Cost MEMS Skin with Integrated Wirleless Communication Capability

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: S103

    One of the ultimate goals of sensor research is to build an integrated unit that harnesses its energy from its surroundings and reacts to, and transmits, any changes in its environment in a predictable and reliable manner. There are several components to this universal goal of a self-contained sensor unit: the power module, the sensor module, the control module, and the transmission module. The ...

  5. Microdischarge Array Flexible Light Source for High-Efficiency Irradiation of Spaced-Based Crops

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: B307

    It is desirable to develop a high-efficiency lighting source for large-area irradiation of space-based crops. The key requirements for such a system include high efficiency, light weight, easy and rapid deployment, compact storage, ruggedness, and low cost. Furthermore, in order to maximize the rate of photosynthesis, it is desirable that the light source deliver an emission spectrum that match ...

  6. Highly Integrated, Reconfigurable, Large-Area, Flexible Radar Antenna Arrays

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: S403

    Highly-integrated, reconfigurable radar antenna arrays fabricated on flexible substrates offer high functionality in a portable package that can be rolled up and transported on the ground, or deployed into space. High levels of integration allow for: reconfigurability of operating frequency and / or gain pattern; integration of control, information processing, and communications functions directly ...

  7. Three-Dimensional Optical Coherence Tomography (3D OCT)


    Applied Science Innovations, Inc. proposes a new tool of 3D optical coherence tomography (OCT) for cellular level imaging at video frame rates and dramatically reduced probe cross-section. Existing commercial OCT tools are focused in ophthalmology, where examination is external to the eye, the size of the probe is not important, and cellular level resolution is not required. The patent-pending 3 ...

  8. Computational Models for Nonlinear Aeroelastic Systems

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: T201

    Clear Science Corp. and Duke University propose to develop and demonstrate new and efficient computational methods of modeling nonlinear aeroelastic systems. The methods will extend the scope of multi-disciplinary computational tools like NASA Dryden's STARS by augmenting linear eigenmode stability algorithms and coupled time-marching techniques. The objective is low-dimensional models that acc ...

  9. Securing Data for Space Communications

    SBC: CompSys Technologies, Inc.            Topic: E202

    NASA's vision of data exchange between space and ground nodes would involve the space network accessing public infrastructure such as the internet. Hence, advanced security measures have to be developed to ensure information integrity and authentication. The proposed innovations in this work are 1) A hierachical security model, where each level has a different security requirement and varying capa ...

  10. An Alternative Ice Protection System for Turbine Engine Inlets

    SBC: Cox & Company, Inc.            Topic: A102

    This proposal presents a dual approach to the development and certification of an alternative system for ice protection of turbine engine inlets. It combines a new generation low power ice protection system with a novel path to certification that is based upon requirements that turbine engines be capable of operation in a hail environment. Eliminated are requirements for high voltages and curren ...
