  1. A Novel Electrokinetics-Driven, Integrated Microfluidic Cartridge for Sample Preparation from Complex Matrices

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB051001

    Sample preparation has been recognized as the single most important challenge to be faced in the development of detect-to-warn (DTW) systems (NRC, 2005). Available commercial sample preparation technologies are expensive, slow (30 min to 2 hours) and require trained laboratory technicians for operation. Addressing this need, we propose to design, fabricate, demonstrate, and validate a novel integr ...

  2. Novel Electrostatics-based Sampler for Bioaerosol Collection in Small Analysis Volumes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB061001

    Current bioaerosol monitoring and evaluation systems are largely based on collection of airborne pathogens in a liquid medium, followed by the detection of the targets of interest. While available aerosol collection technologies employ large collection volumes, biosensors are capable of processing only a small fraction of the collection volume. Our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a ...

  3. Border Surveillance

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: N/A

    The 1400 mile southern border of the United States has historically been difficult to secure due to the vast stretches of land and the inhospitable nature of the terrain. This situation has resulted in a breach of our immigration laws but more importantly provides an opportunity for terrorists to illegally enter the country unobserved. Our phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the sig ...

  4. Networked Event and Object Correlated Multimedia System

    SBC: SEMQUEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    100 cameras each with one million pixel resolution operating at 30 frames per second would require 24Gbps of bandwidth without data compression. Even at 100:1 compression the bandwidth is still large relative to existing digital systems, and this bandwidth is continuous. We propose a technology that continuously digitizes and records data from a scaleable system with 1000¿s of cameras. This sur ...

  5. Human Detector for Cargo Shipping Containers

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Detection of human stowaways in cargo containers is an area of grave concern, and the proposed project will develop a sensor module for the detection of humans hidden within cargo shipping containers. Humans hiding in shipping containers are a threat to homeland security and detectors to reliably identify the presence of individual(s) will be extremely valuable. The proposed devices will rely upon ...

  6. Intelligent Agents for Improved Ground-Test Operations

    SBC: 2LRESEARCH            Topic: N/A

    The proposal outlines a research program for developing a novel soft-computing technology composed of an Artificial Immune System and Bayesian Belief Networks for monitoring, knowledge and information processing, and decision support infrastructure for testing of rocket engines of future spacecrafts. An engine failure during test operations may cause catastrophic results for the test article, supp ...

  7. Effervescent Fine Water Mist Fire Extinguisher for Microgravity Environments

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1203

    Fire suppression systems provide an essential safety function onboard spacecraft. The transition away from halon-based systems has presented an opportunity for efficient and cost-effective alternative approaches. ADA Technologies proposes to develop a fine-water-mist fire suppression system suitable for use in microgravity. The ADA design features a single pressure tank with a patented effervescen ...

  8. Hybrid Guidance System for Relative Navigation

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: S801

    Future NASA architectures and missions will involve many distributed platforms that must work together. This in turn requires guidance, navigation and control (GN&C) technology such as systems that determine spacecraft relative range and attitude. The proposed Hybrid Guidance System (HGS) will be such a system, providing increased relative navigation accuracy and robustness while reducing mass, vo ...

  9. Monolithic, High-Speed Fiber-Optic Switching Array for Lidar

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: E102

    This NASA SBIR Phase II effort will develop a 1 x 10 prototype non-mechanical fiber optic switch for use with high power lasers. The proposed optical device is a fiber-based multi-channel switch to rapidly switch a fiber-coupled laser among ten output channels as an integral part of a fiber-based fixed-array laser transmitter for next-generation NASA lidar systems. The key innovation is the use ...

  10. High Power Electro-Optic Modulator for Space-Based Applications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S406

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I effort will establish the feasibility of developing a fiber coupled, high power, electro-optically controlled, space qualified, phase modulator for the NASA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). Specific to the LISA project is the use of three spacecraft, spanned by vast distances, to make gravitational wave measurements. A central aspect in mai ...
