  1. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  2. STTR Phase II: Deep Learning Technology For The Microscopic Analysis Of Stained Cells Using Unbiased Methods

    SBC: Stereology Resource Center, Inc            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is the development of software to help bioscientists analyze more tissue in less time and with higher accuracy and reproducibility. Currently, stereology studies require a trained technician to sit before a computer screen, making tedious manual counts (clicks) on hundreds to thousands of mic ...

  3. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    There are an estimated 1.7 million oil and gas wells in the United States, 771,000 of these are considered marginal producers. Combined they make up 11.3% of the US oil production and 8.3% of the US gas production. In that last 10 years, over 131,000 of these oil wells and 48,000 gas wells have been plugged and abandoned. Most of these wells suffer from paraffin plugging problems. The only way to ...

  4. High-Speed Platform for Highly Parallel STM lithography and Hierarchical Assembly

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: 17e

    Nanotechnology has failed to live up to its promise of exploiting the emerging properties at the nanoscale because of the lack of manufacturing precision thus denying society many energy saving materials and applications. There is therefore a strong need to realize the promise of complex nanosystems by developing atomically precise manufacturing (APM). This project targets a key component of an At ...

  5. Repurposing Computational Analyses of Tactics for Training Assessments

    SBC: Prevailance, Inc.            Topic: N18AT003

    Data generated by training exercises needs to be consolidated and processed to derive more efficient, effective and adaptive training scenarios through training objective and measures of performance analysis. The main technical challenges addressed by this solution are: data from diverse sources must be pre-processed (i.e., validated, cleaned, synchronized) and loaded into a data warehouse; the ce ...

  6. Additive Manufacturing for Naval Aviation Battery Applications

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: N18AT008

    Texas Research Austin (TRI-Austin) will continue to partner with the University of Texas, Austin, to use additive manufacturing for fabricating and optimizing the lithium ion and electroactive metal electrode systems for which the team established proof of concept in the Phase I base period. The Aerosol Deposition Method (ADM) is a broadly applicable additive manufacturing technology that has been ...

  7. Information-based Norms on Flow, Operations and Traffic Over Networks (INFOTON)

    SBC: ISEA TEK, LLC            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects people, data, and "things" (e.g., software, sensors, platforms), facilitating the translation of information into actions. Although naval platforms networks and communication suites have evolved significantly in the past few years to support such required connectivity, one of the greatest technical challenges still facing the military community is the processi ...

  8. A Multi-channel Radiation-tolerant, Low-power, High-speed, and Resolution Analog-to-Digital Converter for Nuclear Physics Detectors

    SBC: TallannQuest LLC            Topic: 28b

    Cost-effective and power-efficient radiation tolerant semiconductors are needed in various harsh environments, such as particle detectors, communication satellites, high-altitude avionics and medical imagining equipment. These include amplifiers, voltage regulators, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital logic circuitry. However, radiation-tolerant high-speed ADCs currently cost more than ...

  9. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System SoftwareDigital Thread Modeling Environment (DTME)

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: N13AT014

    The ability to align Digital Threads (DT) to Digital Twins (DTw) is a critical component required to achieve reduction in total ownership cost of current and future Air Force (AF) programs. The connecting of the DT to the DTw is a key requirement to achieve model-based system engineering. One can view the connection between DT and DTw as the ability to develop robust models of the real-world syste ...

  10. Real-Time Distributed Quench Detection In High Temperature Superconductor Magnets

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 20a

    Nuclear fusion has great potential for supplying global energy needs with a clean, abundant energy source. Advanced superconducting magnets will be used to contain the plasma at the center of the reactor. To operate these magnets, new sensors are needed to monitor the superconductors in real-time to detect the signs that the superconductor may quench (lose superconducting properties), so that corr ...
