  1. Advanced Window Materials for High Energy Propulsion

    SBC: CERANOVA CORPORATION            Topic: AF07T009

    Window materials are an essential component of some advanced propulsion concepts which require high pressures, high temperatures, low energy losses, and low weights. Window materials must possess a combination of properties such as high mechanical strength, high melting point, high transparency, low density, and good resistance to the operating environment. CeraNova proposes the development of f ...

  2. Aptamers for Ante-mortem Diagnostics of Prion Infection

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A08T035

    All forms of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) are caused by a unique infectious agent termed “prion”, a proteinaceous pathogen lacking nucleic acid. Prions are actually a misfolded variant of the normal mammalian prion protein, PrPc. Normal disease transmission occurs when prions are ingested by a naive animal. The current test for TSE is a post mortem diagnosis looking for protea ...

  3. Atomic Layer Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    Novel photonic structures, such as periodic metal-dielectric photonic bandgap structures (MDPBG) have the potential to revolutionize the field of optical windows. The large mismatch in the permittivities of the metal and dielectric creates resonant tunneling, which allows for high transmission in regions where metals are typically opaque. This property makes MDPBGs very attractive for screening or ...

  4. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  5. Automated Microscopic Malaria Diagnosis

    SBC: Diagnostic Vision Corporation            Topic: A08T036

    In this project we will develop a computerized microscope based imaging system for field testing that will allow location and quantization of malarial parasites (trophozoites). The system will automatically scan a blood smear, locating the portions of the smear that are adequate for analysis and then counting the total number of red cells and the number of red cells containing parasites. The sys ...

  6. Automatic Detection of Hydrothermal Vents

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: N17AT028

    White River Technologies (WRT) propose this effort to develop and demonstrate an automated sensor system for the detection and discrimination of undersea hydrothermal vents. The Navy is interested in utilizing the energy from hydrothermal vents. Prior to being able to exploit this potential energy source, the hydrothermal vents must be located and mapped. Currently detection and mapping of vents i ...

  7. Automation Support using non-Invasive Measures of Operator Vocalization (ASIMOV)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    Human-machine teams are increasingly prevalent across the DoD. These teams unite human operators with advanced automated teammates to execute complex, mission-critical tasks. Unfortunately, this collaboration between automated and human teammates can increase operator strain, because operators must complete their own tasks while also monitoring teammates and distributing tasks; one specific strain ...

  8. BATTLE: Battlefield Airmen Training Technologies for LVC, ground-based Environments

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    Effective Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) training methods have been underutilized within ground-based training operations. More specifically, Battlefield Airmen training methods have not fully adopted or incorporated recent advances in augmented reality (AR) technologies into their training due to specialized training requirements. To address this issue, the Aptima team will design and deve ...

  9. Big Open Source Social Science (BOSSS)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: A16AT013

    The team of Boston Fusion Corp., Arizona State University, and Sophia Speira proposes Phase II of Big Open-Source Social Science, BOSSS, a technology that will provide rapid social-science based awareness of the cultural landscape in a given locality. Based on the twin pillars of mathematical social science and big data, BOSSS searches open-source documents, parses the documents using natural lang ...

  10. Biological Agent Detection Network

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A17AT020

    Physical Sciences Inc. in cooperation with University of Notre Dame proposes to develop a method for the persistent surveillance and detection of aerosolized biological warfare agents using a distributed point bioaerosol detector network, local meteorological sensors, existing infrared surveillance cameras, and crowdsourced georeferenced network traffic and phrase monitoring. The proposed technolo ...
