  1. Strategies for providing evidence-based learning opportunities

    SBC: ANALYTIC FOCUS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop an evidence-based approach to maximize learning for K-12 students and predict learning outcomes. We propose to analyze data at multiple levels, including individual and group assessment data, and characteristics of the student, teacher, principal, and school. Using this data, we will categorize performance levels, determine the strengths and weaknesses of t ...

  2. Low-Cost, Networked, Disposable Chemical Sensor

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: SOCOM05010

    There is an acute need for a networked chemical sensor that is inexpensive enough to allow it to be treated as a disposable item - deployed and left in-place until the end of its useful life, or until operations move out of communications range. Electrochemical microarray sensors can be fabricated at low enough unit cost to make the development of a disposable sensor node feasible. These sensors ...

  3. Novel Nanofluidics-Based Sensor System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB062001

    We propose to develop a novel nanofluidic-based biosensor system that precisely detects and quantifies the biological threat agent. This handheld portable device will consume little power, be ruggedly constructed, use tiny sample volumes, and be UAV-mountable. No commercially available system uses the proposed technology. The proposed system will separate the genomic contents from a population ...

  4. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  5. Through-Wall Sensing (TWS) Technologies for Dismounted Infantry

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB041022

    Time Domain (TDC) will adapt our man-portable, hand-held, radar that detects stationary persons through walls for non-stabilized operation. With this device, soldiers in urban environments can quickly, safely and confidently assess building occupancy and maintain a tactical advantage. TDC’s SoldierVision® (SV) Sense Through The Wall (STTW) Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Radar product is designed for Mili ...

  6. Sparse Array Applications for Small Satellites

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB062020

    The purpose of this project is to provide a technology that enables the use of constellations of satellite based, coherent, RF sparse arrays. Such sparse arrays would have higher resolution than conventional approaches and would provide superior remote sensing capabilities at a fraction of today’s cost. The key enabling mechanisms are 1) the ability to accurately measure the distance between i ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Enabling Low-Temperature Synthesis of Vertically Aligned Carbon-Nanotubes by Selective Heating of Catalyst

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a new process of low-temperature synthesis of aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanofibers (CNFs). CNTs/CNFs are widely studied for manufacturing of novel nanomaterials and nanodevices. The prospects of this manufacturing are currently limited by the high (above 500 deg C) surface temperature during CNT/CNF synthesis, ...

  8. STTR Phase I: DNA Assembly for Directed Expression of Industrial Enzymes Using a Novel Hyperthermophilic Genome

    SBC: IXPRESSGENES, INC.            Topic: BT

    This Small Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project aims to exploit a newly sequenced genome of a hyperthermophilic microorganism for the production of thermal stable enzymes that are useful for molecular engineering and industrial application. The targeted DNA coding regions can be prepared for recombinant protein expression without extended manipulations in restriction digest and liga ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Location Aware Computing Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to transform the real time location system (RTLS) industry by bringing to fruition a simple, inexpensive, yet highly accurate location awareness technology called Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER). The proposed research will assess a radically new tracking technology by focusing on the technology's two primary technical uncertai ...
