  1. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  2. On-board Smart Vision System to Support Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

    SBC: Connected Wise LLC            Topic: 180FH1

    Connected automated vehicle (CAV) technology has significant implications in terms of transportation system safety and efficiency. However, building and maintaining a wireless communication infrastructure (e.g. roadside units (RSUs), power, fiber optic lines etc.) across the U.S. is a challenging task. In urban areas, where vehicle population and vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) are high, building suc ...

  3. Guided Augmented Independence Travel Aid (GAIT-Aid)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: 180FT1

    Lack of transportation access affects approximately 30% of people with functional limitations. In fact, people with functional limitations experience transportation access barriers four times more than those without limitations. With the emerging market of low cost augmented and virtual reality technology, perceptual user interfaces (PUI) that interact more naturalistically with end-users are prov ...

  4. Long Life, Low Cost Mini-Roundabouts from Simple Modular Shapes and Recycled

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: 142FH3

    In Phase II, ZKxKZ designed, developed and demonstrated an approach for fabrication and rapid installation of low cost modular mini-roundabouts made from recycled plastic boards. Phase II culminated in the installation of one full modular mini-roundabout in both Georgia and Virginia. In addition, 3 modular mini-roundabouts were commercially sold and installed in Canada prior to the SBIR funded sit ...

  5. Collaboration-Optimized Network for Naturalistic Exploration and Communication about Traffic

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: 180NH2

    Current access to and analysis of the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) dataset requires significant time and technical skill. Data analysis tools are often general-purpose, designed to support the analysis of any dataset, and do not easily support the types of questions many transportation and safety engineers ask of the FARS data. Visualizations can help users understand relationships betwe ...

  6. Structured Waveform, Magnetic Field (SWMF) PIG Development for Cracks and Corrosion

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 132PH1

    Multiple major pipeline failures have been caused by seam weld defects not detected by available ILI technology [August 16, 2013 WSJ]. Phase I will demonstrate a game changing capability to deliver internal and external corrosion mapping and seam weld crack detection in a low-cost tool that “encourages more repetitive ILI runs and wider use.” JENTEK’s new through wall imaging method called S ...

  7. Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement Systems (McROMS)

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: 141FR1

    What is needed is a lightweight system that can be deployed and used by one person that will measure and compile the track geometry data and compute the MCO for a rail section in real time without reliance on any external reference. Such a device, the Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement System (McROMS) is the subject of this proposal. But MCO is not the only rail geometry data of interest. If this s ...

  8. Integrated Tracking and Guidance (I-TAG) System for Trenchless Utility Relocation

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Trenchless excavation methods, such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations, offer the potential for significant cost savings on many utility relocation projects; however, these methods require extremely accurate drill head navigation in addition to precise knowledge of existing utility location in order to ensure boring operations do not interfere with existing pipelines or conduits. ...

  9. Low-Noise, High-Efficiency Geiger Photodiode for Quantum Cryptography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mechanics of single photons can be used to entangle information carry quantum states, allowing for quantum computation or random number generation. Quantum communication utilizes the quantum nature of single-photons to retain information, particularly in the form of quantum key distribution protocols. High-efficiency, low-noise single photon detection at high efficiency is critical for the app ...

  10. Scale-Up of ATPE Technology to Produce Highly Enriched Semiconducting SWCNTs

    SBC: SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT)            Topic: N/A

    Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have unique material properties making them very attractive for use in a variety of electronic applications. However, as-grown SWCNTs contain a mixture of tubes with heterogeneous optical and electronic properties. The chiral species must be separated in order to maximize the desired properties. To date, no large scale separation process has been accomplishe ...
