  1. Broadband Jam/Interference Immune MANET

    SBC: Silvus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF093034

    The goal of this SBIR effort is to allow Special Operations Forces to communicate using tactical MANET radios in the presence of adversary jamming capabilities while transmitting large data files and potentially streaming data such as video and other sensor data.Our approach is based on spatial filtering using multi-antenna capable radios. The technique has perviously been shown effective under st ...

  2. Diagnostic device for detecting biomarkers of early multiorgan injury in saliva

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: DHP16006

    Combat soldiers are exposed to vast numbers of dangerous chemicals with potentially adverse health outcomes. This SBIR proposal aims to develop a new class of saliva based diagnostic assays that will measure the bodys response to toxic chemical exposure with a panel of clinically validated biomarkers that are indicative of organ injury. The tests will leverage the proven functionality of lateral ...

  3. Cell Phone-based Early Detection of Multi-Organ Injury Biomarkers in Saliva

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHP16006

    Rapid diagnosis in conflict areas is a growing military need, as troops are exposed to chemical threats ( Testing for biomarkers in saliva has recently shown great promise in diagnostics, prognostics, and treatment efficacy follow-up. In addition to its convenience for field sampling and rapid testing, saliva is a rich body fluid with a number of phys ...

  4. Automated Vision Tester Technology Development for Aircrew Clinical Vision Screening

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DHP16004

    Existing visual screening devices consist of illuminated test cards. By rotating the knob, images may be changed; however, once the system is loaded with cards it cannot be easily reconfigured. There are a limited number of cards that a unit can hold at one time, and it is impossible to change cards on the fly if a patients vision needs further investigation or if the clinician wants to do variabl ...

  5. Diagnostic Device for Detecting Biomarkers of Early Multiorgan Injury in Saliva

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: DHP16006

    DoD requires a single, multiplexed, saliva-based diagnostic bioassay to determine multiorgan injury-relevant systemic toxicity. This assay should quantitatively-detect clinically relevant biomarkers in saliva and validate organ injury arising from chemical/xenobiotic exposure. Innosense LLC (ISL) is building on its proprietary carbon nanotube platform to construct Nano-Mos for detecting salivary b ...

  6. Novel Super-cooling of Genitourinary Cells and Tissues for Transplant

    SBC: X-Therma Inc.            Topic: DHP16012

    A key bottleneck to be addressed in regenerative medicine is hypothermic preservation of cells and tissues, which has been shown to extend survival of cell and tissue-based therapies by decreasing ischemic effect. However, preservation technology is aged, toxic and less effective than desired with typical cell survival post-thaw below 50% and unreliable potency. Current technology greatly hinders ...

  7. Selective Aortic Arch Perfusion Technologies for Hemorrhage-induced Cardiac Arrest

    SBC: RESUSITECH, INC.            Topic: DHP16009

    Trauma is the most common cause of death in ages 1-48. Uncontrolled hemorrhage in the torso is the leading cause of preventable death in military combatants and civilian trauma patients with otherwise survivable injuries. The prospects for survival from hemorrhage-induced traumatic cardiac arrest (HiTCA) are dismal with only about a 1% survival rate. Advances in endovascular technologies have led ...

  8. PleuraPath Quick-Connect Chest Tube System

    SBC: Critical Innovations LLC            Topic: DHP16011

    Defense Health Program (DHP) seeks to develop a new and innovative medical device tailored to prevent or treat accumulation of blood in the pleural space after chest trauma or surgery (i.e. retained hemothorax). Critical Innovations; NeoMatRx; Milestone Strategies; OHSU School of Medicine; and, KARA & Associates, in addition to consultant Captains David Plurad, MD, FACS (USN, Ret.) and David Tanen ...

  9. Automated Vision Tester

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: DHP16004

    Despite recent tremendous leaps in the development of new technologies for image recording, presentation, manipulation, 3D capabilities, and analysis, many vision exams are still performed using paper Snellen charts, paper color charts and Amsler grids. Current procedures are time consuming, labor intensive, potentially subject to transcription errors and test preparation, which may compromise the ...

  10. Non-linear Adaptive Optics

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: SB171012

    Femtosecond pulses can be significantly degraded when passing through a turbulent atmosphere.Normal adaptive optics cannot measure or correct these turbulence-induced aberrations because the femto pulses follow a curvilinear path through the air.OPC will enhance an existing Army funded femtosecond system with traditional adaptive optics to include a new form of adaptive optics able to measure the ...
