  1. Portable Cell Maintenance System

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A04T028

    Cultured cell-based biosensors offer insight into the physiological action of the agent of interest, which is an advantage over other types of sensors. The development of cell-based biosensors that are field-portable would increase their utility in toxicology and environmental monitoring. One of the most significant issues hampering the development of field portable cell-based biosensors is the ...

  2. Integrated Flight Control Systems for Kinetic Kill Vehicles with Novel Internal Actuators

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA04T003

    New internal actuation technologies and integrated design of guidance-control systems for kinetic kill vehicles are proposed. These actuation technologies can be used for KKV trajectory and attitude control in any speed range, both within and outside the atmosphere. Since the actuators are contained entirely within the airframe geometric envelope, and because no mass expulsion is involved, they of ...

  4. Terahertz-Frequency Lasers based on Semiconductor Nanocrystals

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: A04T015

    ALTAIR Center in cooperation with the NanoTech Institute at the University of Texas at Dallas proposes to develop a new class of terahertz (THz) lasers generating about 1 mW in the frequency range 0.3-10 THz at room temperature. The proposed concept is based on employing the semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots). The nanocrystal emitters are optically pumped by commercially available powerful ...

  5. Computational Methods for Feedback Flow Controllers in Aerodynamic Applications

    SBC: CLEAR SCIENCE CORP            Topic: AF03T007

    Clear Science Corp. and the University of California at Los Angeles propose to develop a versatile and comprehensive computational toolbox for designing feedback flow controllers in aerodynamic applications. Target objectives include separation control to manage lift and drag, control of transition to turbulence, turbulence control to reduce skin friction drag, increase mixing, or reduce heat tra ...

  6. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  7. Multi-GHz TFT

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: ST041005

    The project will demonstrate a multi-GHz thin-film transistor with multi-micron feature sizes. The inherently defect-tolerant character of the indium arsenide-based materials system supports high mobilities in defect-rich, polycrystalline epitaxial layers. Circuits using the TFTs will eventually be deployable on flexible/conformal substrates extensible to multi-meter^2 and roll-to-roll substrates. ...

  8. Novel Material for Capture and Spectral Detection of Hazardous Vapors

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04T021

    Rapid detection and unambiguous identification of chemical warfare agents is vital for efficient use of military and civil defense resources. While a variety of detection technologies are currently available, field-deployable systems such as the M21 passive IR standoff detector and the CAM/ICAM ion mobility detector are prone to false alarms due to the presence of interfering species. Combining ...

  9. Intelligent Multi-Sensing Structural Health Monitoring Infrastructure

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: AF03T017

    Structural health monitoring (SHM) is an emerging technology leading to the development of systems capable of continuously monitoring structures for damage, with minimal human intervention. There are several components required to design a successful SHM system, including sensors, communication and power systems. Current SHM efforts have focused mainly on sensing methods for damage detection, howe ...

  10. Detection of Molecular and Biomolecular Species by Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering

    SBC: NANOSPECTRA BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: AF03T002

    The goal of this STTR Phase II Proposal is to complete development of the nanoshell-based surface enhanced Raman scattering substrate (NERS) developed in our successful Phase I work. This Phase II work will focus on commercialization of the substrate developed in Phase I by (i) refining manufacturing methods, including substrate composition, nanoshell deposition, and detection geometry to increas ...
