  1. High-Performance ADC for Particle Accelerator Instrumentation Applications

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: 44g

    A critical aspect in Particle Accelerator Instrumentation is the precise, real-time control of the high- energy particle beams used to create the conditions required for sub-atomic physics experiments. The accelerator instrumentation systems require digital control and feedback with extremely high linearity and dynamic range to achieve system performance targets. In addition, with the added requir ...

  2. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this SBIR project the proposed commuter railcar loading concept was developed in detail and its operation was simulated in order to demonstrate feasibility and to quantify the reduction in station dwell time compared to other railcar loading operations. Feasibility was demonstrated. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers, regardless of mobility, from a wide r ...

  3. Controlling Varroa Mites in the Honey Bee, Apis Mellifera

    SBC: S.A.F.E R&D            Topic: N/A

    Varroa jacobsoni (Oudemans) (=V.destructor) is a parasitic mite of honey bee Apis mellifera (L.), that has had a catastrophic effect in honey bee populations, commercial pollination and the beekeeping industry across the U.S. and worldwide. The objective is to develop alternative methodologies to control Varroa through systemic and contact introduction of essential oils through a unique delivery s ...

  4. Development of the Pain Self-Management Program


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pain accounts for almost 80% of all of the office visits to physicians each year (National Center for Health Statistics, 1986; Stucky, Gold, & Zhang, 2001; Winterowd, Beck, & Greuner, 2003) and is a major source of disability, accounting for upwards of 700 million lost work days and $100 billion in health care costs per year (Report of the Commission on Evaluat ...

  5. Handwriting Teaching Tool

    SBC: NEUROSCRIPT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We will develop a system both for training efficient handwriting in school children and for scientific testing of hypotheses on handwriting education. Handwriting is the only and most widely learned fine motor skill. The US school system spends $200M per year (our estimate) on handwriting instruction materials. Teachers receive only limited training to teach ha ...

  6. Quality Control Tool for Newborn Screening Blood Samples


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Essentially all newborns in the United States (about 4 million per year) and at least 30 other countries have blood samples obtained on filter paper cards for the purpose of screening for a number of metabolic and genetic diseases. To prevent morbidity, such as brain damage, from metabolic diseases such as phenylketonuria or congenital hypothyroidism, it is cri ...

  7. Noninvasive Home Monitor for Sleep Apnea Testing


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obstructive sleep apnea affects about 3-4% of the population including children. There is considerable associated morbidity and mortality. In particular there is a strong association with hypertension and cardiac disease. Daytime somnolence leads to increased traffic accidents and decreased worker production. The key diagnostic testing for this condition is ove ...

  8. Non Lethal Vehicle Stopping Technology


    Engineering Science Analysis Corporation (ESA) has developed a new stopping technology that is compact, scalable, and easily deployable. None of the current mechanical vehicle stopping technologies meet the requirements for small, portable highly effective vehiclestopping devices. Mechanical stopping technologies must consider the kinetic energy of the vehicle being stopped. This means a large lar ...

  9. Portable, Solid-State Light Sources for Field Radiometric Calibrations

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: S603

    Various Earth Science fields require well-calibrated field radiometers whose calibrations must be tracked and verified in the field. NASA has long recognized requirement. However, these activities require specialized light sources that typically require high power, are bulky and difficult to use in the field, and do not work with all types of radiometers. We propose a next-generation portab ...

  10. A Nanotube Surface Reinforced Graphite Fiber Exhibiting Significantly Enhanced Properties

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: X203

    The completed Phase I work was directed at the application of nanotechnology to graphite/epoxy composites. A novel approach to the application of the nanotubes onto the carbon fiber surface was investigated. As a result, a very significant increase in compressive strength of 120% was attained, compared with 20% reported in the literature. The Phase II builds on the success of the Phase I. It w ...
