  1. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  4. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are chemical substances that produce toxic effects if given in sufficient quantities and/or exposed for long durations. TICs are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since it would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than CAs. There are many commercially available handheld and personal gas monitors to monitor TICs. However, the ...

  6. A Wearable Battery Cloth

    SBC: FLEXEL LLC            Topic: N/A

    Hydrated ruthenium oxide has demonstrated outstanding volumetric charge storage capability. It is non-toxic, environmentally safe, and when used with an oxidizing counter-electrode, becomes part of a galvanic cell (a battery). Ruthenium oxide and many oxidizing metals, like zinc, are available as nano-particulate powers. They combine to form highly flexible batteries with excellent current sourcin ...
