  1. Hand-portable GC-TMS Instrumentation for Rapid Detection and Differentiation of Airborne Biological Threats

    SBC: TORION TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A07077

    This project proposes the development and optimization of a compact air sampler/reactor system for collection of bacterial endospores and conversion of them into semivolatile biological marker compounds for the rapid detection of target airborne pathogens. This involves the integration of a compact particle impactor with a heated reactor for conducting controlled thermochemolysis and methylation. ...

  3. Swarm/agent Technology For Small Unit Scalable Effects

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: A09036

    Procerus Technologies, along with its partner Brigham Young University, propose to develop cooperative control technologies to enable multiple small, unmanned air vehicles (SUAVs) to carry out a mission involving search, tracking, imaging, and localization (STIL). The goal is to carry out these activities as a team of SUAVs, enhancing the performance and robustness of the mission execution. Duri ...

  4. Multi-Mechanistic Cosmetic Coating to Protect Skin from Thermal Injury

    SBC: SciGenesis, LLC            Topic: A08183

    In this Small Business Innovative Research Phase I program, SciGenesis proposes to develop a multi-mechanistic cosmetic coating for the protection of military and first responders from flash fire and other intense thermal flux scenarios. Coatings will utilize a combination of mechanisms to increase the time required to cause a second degree burn from 2 seconds to 4 seconds, corresponding to a hea ...

  5. Light Cavitation Peening of Carburized Gears

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A09014

    Cavitation peening (CP) is a novel method of inducing residual compressive stresses in components to enhance fatigue life and improve damage tolerance. The process involves sweeping ultra high-pressure waterjets over the surface to be peened so that cavitation bubbles form and collapse on the workpiece. The intensity of the peening is controlled by varying the speed at which the jet traverses the ...

  6. High Pressure Liquid Accelerated Cold Spray

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A09050

    This proposal introduces a novel Direct Manufacturing process for making high performance components and coatings. This process has the potential to overcome many of the limitations of current technology and may make it possible to manufacture production quantity and quality parts directly from powder, minimizing material waste, reducing overall manufacturing costs and dramatically reducing lead ...

  7. Cryogenically-cooled eyesafe laser diode arrays for resonant pumping of Er-doped gain media

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: A08061

    High-power solid state lasers operating beyond 1300-nm have been proposed as “eye-safer” sources in many applications. Erbium-doped solid state lasers provide an attractive gain medium due to emission at eyesafe wavelengths, and the potential for ultra-low quantum defect pumping by diode lasers operating around 1532-nm. It has been shown that cooling the solid state crystalline gain medium t ...

  8. Development of a Point-of-care Assay for the Detection of Sand Fly Fever Virus (SFFV), a Militarily Important Pathogen of the CENTCOM, EUCOM and AFRIC

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A08182

    Sand fly fever is actually caused by a group of several viruses often termed Sand fly ever viruses (SFFV) and are typically caused by Toscana, Naples and Sicilian viruses. The Toscana virus is confined to Italy and the Mediterranean basin whereas the Naples and Sicilian viruses are more prevalent and often found together in the Middle East through Pakistan and Afghanistan. More recently Sicilian v ...

  9. THz and Sub-THz MEMS-Fabricated Klystron Amplifier

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: A09AT016

    InnoSys and Purdue University propose to research and develop robust designs for building, implementing and demonstrating a new class of terahertz (THz) vacuum electronic device (VED) power amplifiers and power sources at frequencies in the range of 0.3-3.0 THz (the so-called THz regime) employing advanced micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) technology and processes. There is significant inter ...

  10. Non Invasive Assessment of Intracranial Pressure and Cerebrovascular Status after Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: SPENCER TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD09H02

    We will construct a non-invasive, portable, diagnostic ultrasound unit that will enable clinicians to determine which soldiers suffering from traumatic brain injury have increased intracranial pressure (ICP), or adverse cerebral hemodynamics indicating conditions such as vasospasm. This device will help diagnose and monitor those soldiers in need of clinical management. The expertise and intellec ...
