Award Amount: $149,925.00
Abstract:
Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) proposes to adapt and advance its recently developed intrinsically safe hypergolic leak detection technique, based on its well established optical sensing techniques, for developing a modular liquid hypergolic propulsion (LHP) leak detection sensor. We have… More

Stereo Ophthalmic Smartphone with Accessories for In-Field Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Vladimir Rubtsov, Senior Scientist – (424) 263-6316
Award Amount: $99,941.00
Abstract:
Ocular injuries account for approximately 13%-22% of all combat casualties, and up to 32% in disasters. Ophthalmic diagnostic equipment and specialists are usually not available under these conditions, but telediagnosis could support on-scene diagnosis by a nonspecialist or even a nonprofessional… More

Cell Phone-based Lateral Flow Assay for Blood Biomarker Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Henry Lin, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $699,947.00
Abstract:
The ability to integrate a sensor platform with a cell phone for health monitoring and disease diagnosis for astronauts in space has the potential to be cost effective and space saving. In this proposal, Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) builds upon its expertise in lateral flow test strip (LFTS)… More

Miniature Sensor Probe for O2, CO2, and H2O Monitoring in Space Suits

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jesus Delgado Alonso, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $699,961.00
Abstract:
Advanced space suits require lightweight, low-power, durable sensors for monitoring critical life support materials. No current compact sensors have the tolerance for liquid water that is specifically required for next-generation portable life support systems (PLSS). Intelligent Optical Systems… More
