Abstract:Bacterial enteric pathogens causing travelers"diarrhea (TD) in developing countries include enterotoxigenic E. coli (50%), Camplyobacter jejuni, Shigella sonnei and Shigella flexneri, while Norovirus is a common viral cause. High risk regions for TD include areas where US service members are… more
Abstract:Field testing of water samples is needed for broad and sensitive detection of toxic industrial chemicals, or TICs. The use of unicellular organisms in cell-based detection systems is particularly advantageous both because these organisms have developed a natural ability to respond to environmental… more

security applications. The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons
is a serious threat in today’s world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable
Abstract:Agiltron proposes to develop an extremely compact and high sensitivity uncooled near- and mid-infrared (NMIR) spectrometer engine for planetary compositional analysis and mapping. In this program, we will produce lead salt-based IR detector materials with single crystalline-like oriented thin film… more
Abstract:Leveraging Agiltron"s industrial leading developments and production of high speed fiber optical components and modules as well as commercial photonic devices, we propose to develop a new class of high performance tunable RF filters and filter banks for advanced RF systems. The approach is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In this STTR program, Agiltron and Iowa State University (ISU) jointly propose to develop simple material and structural solutions that enable directionally dependent emission in the infrared regime. The highly directional infrared emission has extremely narrow emission patterns and a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Leveraging Agiltron"s organic thin film transistor (OTFT) array design and printing technology and industrial leading developments and productions uncooled mid-infrared (mid-IR) detectors and detector arrays, we propose to develop a new class of high performance printed mid-IR… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a device that is capable of rapidly identifying and classifying pollen from a broad sampling base using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). The proposed Raman device is designed to spectroscopically examine, identify and classify the spatial and temporal origin of… more
Abstract:Agiltron, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), will build and test the Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS), a stereoscopic vision system to provide 3-D location and mapping capability for the navigation of firefighting robotic systems. IRIS is based on Agiltron"s… more
Abstract:Loveraging on Agiltron's experience in optical fiber components, Agiltron proposed a coherent single-mode fiber (SMF) spatial filter array (SFA) with a gradient index fiber (GIF) lens array pair to meet NASA's application of planet exploration. There are several advantages over the current… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
