Award List:

Compact, Lightweight, Low-Cost, Permanently-Aligned Infrared Spectrometers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Christopher Manning, President
Award Amount: $68,730.00
Abstract:
Military, government and civilian personnel need timely and cost-effective warning of chemical and biological hazards in many arenas.Timely warning allows for effective personnel protection. ManningApplied Technology proposes to construct a novel Fouriertransform-infrared spectrometer which is… More

Compact, Rugged FT-IR Spectrometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Christopher Manning, President
Award Amount: $727,332.00
Abstract:
A novel Fourier transform-infrared spectrometer will be developed. The instrument is modular, rugged, compact, and optically stable. Large volume pricing will be less than $4000 per unit. Two months of Phase I effort have demonstrated conclusively thefeasibility of three critical technical… More

Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF IDAHO
Principal Investigator: Christopher Manning, President
Award Amount: $99,999.00
RI Contact: Laura Hubbard
Abstract:
The threat of biological attack can be mitigated by deployment of acost-effective bioaerosol sensor network. For U.S. forces inparticular, the high false alarm rate of the Biological AerosolWarning System is very costly. This project will demonstrate thefeasibility of a novel bioaerosol sampling… More

High-throughput Tilt-compensated Interferometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Christopher Manning, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Feasibility testing of a novel high-throughput, tilt-compensated interferometer design is proposed. The Phase I effort will demonstrate a prototype and two manufacturing techniques for lowering costs. The novel optical design offers excellent interferometric stability, inexpensive manufacture and… More

Etalon Spectrometer for Chemical Threat Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Christopher Manning, President
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
The work proposed here will demonstrate the feasibility of a high-sensitivity,scanning-etalon infrared spectrometer to detect silent chemical threats, inresponse to Subtopic 1 of the solicitation. There is a critical needthroughout the DoD, the U.S. government, and the commercial sector for… More

Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: University of Idaho
Principal Investigator: Christopher Manning, President
Award Amount: $0.00
RI Contact: Laura Hubbard
Abstract:
Development of an Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler with enhanced optical triggering capability is proposed, following a highly successful Phase I effort that clearly demonstrated feasibility. The threat of a bioaerosol attack can be partially mitigated by deployment of a cost-effective sensor network.… More
