  1. Improved Collection, Specificity, and Longterm Reagent Storage for Point of Care Diagnostics

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: SB111001

    The role of point of care (POC) diagnostics in the medical field has rapidly grown in the last few decades into a multi-billion dollar industry. For many diagnostic applications, POC diagnostics technologies are rapidly displacing in-vitro laboratory based diagnostics because POC systems allow for more rapid and effective diagnosis and triage, which leads to improved patient outcomes and reduced h ...

  2. INSITE: An Unattended In Situ HSCB Data Collection, Visualization, and Analysis System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS2

    Human Socio-Cultural Behavioral (HSCB)-based models have the potential to help tactical commanders assess situations and project consequences of actions in counterinsurgency (COIN) missions. Unfortunately, the potential utility of these models been limited due to a lack of area of interest (AOI) data traditionally collected by local subject matter experts (SMEs). The short supply of SMEs has creat ...

  3. Languaged Informed data Gathering and Analysis Toolkit and Unified REporting System (LIGATURES)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10HS2

    Recent military missions demonstrate the need for understanding the socio-cultural landscape, which requires access to timely and detailed data. Existing approaches to HSCB data collection have proven inadequate and the lack of data has become a key constraint for modeling and analysis efforts. Accordingly, we propose to construct the Language Informed data Gathering and Analysis Toolkit and Unifi ...

  4. Laser Processing Fabrication Technology from Nano to Micro Scales for Polymer Photonics

    SBC: AppliFlex LLC            Topic: SB103004

    This project proposes to develop versatile, lithography-free technology for fabricating high-performance polymer photonic devices. This innovation utilizes laser processing to achieve low-cost, simplified production method without compromising the performance necessary for high-speed optical telecommunication devices. The proposed approach is a (a) flexible fabrication platform spanning from nano ...

  5. Lithography-free Manufacturing of Polymer Photonic Devices

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SB103004

    Photonic devices are used to produce, transmit, modulate, and detect light. These devices are widely used in the data storage and communications industries. Commercial photonic devices are typically made of rigid materials including inorganic oxides and semiconductors, however, these materials are costly, expensive to deposit and process, and have poor mechanical properties (e.g., brittle, delica ...

  6. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: SB103001

    Biologically-inspired motions such as flapping, perching, walking, running, swimming, grasping and manipulating, are difficult for the most advanced robots today. The primary limitation comes from actuation technology in terms of stress/strain ratio delivered to the joint by the actuator overcoming specific resistance. Electromagnetic motors have low torque at high speeds and hence cannot be used ...

  7. Probabilistic and Relational Inferences in Dynamic Environments (PRIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST081004

    Uncertainty on the modern battlefield makes mission planning and decision making extremely complex for field commanders. Mission planners can be aided by initial and ongoing situation assessment, future state estimation, assessment of the current plan"s probability of success, what-if analysis, and suggestions for decisions. At present, few automated tools exist to provide mission planners with th ...

  8. Robot Fabrication via Layered Manufacturing

    SBC: Cyphy Works, Inc.            Topic: SB103002

    In this phase I proposal, we seek a solution to the problem of wiring sensors and actuators on periphery of a robot"s frame(i.e. those positioned to make contact with environment). We will accomplish this using printing technologies and a new proprietary layered carbon fiber forming technology. Because we will enhance segments from CyPhy Works UAV with this technology, this project will have a ...

  9. Scroll Pump for Vapor Liquid Mixtures of Refrigerants

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SB112001

    The purpose of this topic is to develop a pump that can pump two-phase, liquid and vapor mixtures of common refrigerants and heat transfer fluids, without oil lubrication. The challenges of pumping in this regime are well known: Two-phase, liquid-vapor refrigerant mixtures are a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor, by definition meaning that there is zero net positive suction head. M ...

  10. Social PLatform for an ISR Collaboration Environment (SPLICE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    Despite advances to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, intelligence analysts in the theater cannot achieve true multi-INT exploitation and cross-cueing due to the stove-piped nature of fielded ISR systems. Current ISR systems: 1) force human-to-human interaction to be the primary method to discover relevant intelligence data, despite its inefficiency; 2) require sig ...
