  1. MWIR photodetectors with ultra-thin absorbers

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: A19BT009

    Mid-wave infrared Antimonide-based Type II superlattice (T2SL) nBn detectors are a promising technology for compact, high-efficiency, uncooled focal plane arrays (FPA). However, reduction in dark current is desired to improve the temperature performance amongst other factors. This may be accomplished by reducing the absorption layer thickness, but it comes at the expense of diminished external qua ...

  2. Large scale natural melanin production for military applications

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A19BT010

    Melanins are natural pigments that are found in a wide range of living organisms, including bacteria, fungi, plants and animals. Melanin pigments play diverse and important roles, including protecting microorganisms against UV radiation, thermoregulation in lower vertebrates, and photoprotection of the skin in higher mammals. The most remarkable function of melanin is its capacity in radiation pro ...

  3. Ratiometric Quantification of Targeted Methylated DNA sites using MM-LAMP-OSD & Detection Devices

    SBC: Fabrico Technology, Inc.            Topic: A19BT013

    The DoD is seeking technology and systems to quantify regulating DNA methylation transcriptional activators or repressors, and chromatin remodeling enzymes. Fabrico Technology, Dr. Sanchita Bhadra, and Professor Andrew Ellington of the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to develop an in-field detection platform based upon Mismatch Methyl Loop Mediated Isothermal Amplification-One-step Strand ...

  4. Radio Disruption of Electronic Systems

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: A19CT007

    Vadum and North Carolina State University will develop Radio Disruption of Electronic Systems (RADES) to deliver standoff denial of swarming adversary unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Novel RADES waveforms bypass common jamming mitigation techniques by exploiting a widened attack surface of fundamental electronic hardware vulnerabilities in UAS. Integrated with a software-defined radio (SDR) on a ...

  5. Novel Nanocoating technology for Functional Textile

    SBC: Claros Technologies Inc.            Topic: A18BT024

    Nanoparticles represent an attractive alternative in coating processes due to their functional versatility, including surface, optical, conductive and catalytic properties. However, current processes of coating textile products with nanoparticles results in rapid loss of the nanoparticles during laundering or use, leading to a significant decrease in product durability and functionality and increa ...

  6. Compact and Efficient Membraneless Water Purification

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A18BT005

    Local water production for troops using standard membrane filtration processes presents a significant logistics burden because of high energy consumption for removing particles based on size-exclusion methods and the constant need to replace fouled membranes. A membraneless filtration method using dissolved CO2 has been demonstrated to separate charged particles through the mechanism of diffusioph ...

  7. Highly efficient UV LEDs for disinfection

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: A18BT006

    Treatment of water with ultraviolet (UV) light, which destroys target DNA of microorganisms, is the safest, most reliable, and sustainable way of freeing water from microbial contamination. This process is desired in place of chlorination and is widely used in the US for wastewater treatment. We propose the development of a highly efficient UV LED with emission at 265 nm, with EQE>30%, and WPE>15% ...

  8. VANESSA: Virtual Analysis Networks and Explanations for Social Sensing Analysis

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: A18BT008

    SIFT, JHU medicine and University of Central Florida are proposing to develop VANESSA (Virtual Analysis Networks and Explanations for Social Sensing Analysis) - a social sensing platform providing team diagnostics of interacting teams and recommendations for enhanced team functioning of human and human-cyber teams. The overall goal of VANESSA is to develop an adaptive technology platform with a fo ...

  9. Analysis and Design of Adaptive Multi-Function Antenna Systems Based on Signal Fragmentation

    SBC: Albanese Defense and Energy Development Company            Topic: A18BT009

    We propose an innovative mathematical approach to the analysis and design of multi-function adaptive antenna systems. It uses the idea of signal fragmentation that has passed significant prior testing and employs the methods and results from sampling theory, approximation theory, and numerical optimization. The fragmentation of a signal into a combination of short elementary pulses (wavelets) allo ...

  10. Long Lasting Drug Implants for Malaria Chemoprophylaxis

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: A18BT022

    Oral chemoprophylaxis is currently the US Army’s major intervention strategy in the prevention of malaria. However, it has been reported that compliance with the prescribed dosing regimen (i.e. daily oral tablets) by deployed service members is notoriously low (ranging from 30% to 56%) due to side effects, forgetfulness, and low perception of risk. This poor compliance was a major contributing f ...
