  1. Passive Infrared Detection of Aerosolized Bacterial Spores

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: A10AT019

    deciBel Research and our university partner, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)-Center for Imaging Science, propose to develop a dual MWIR/LWIR imaging polarimeter for the detection and discrimination of aerosolized biological spores. The system will exploit spectral absorption and MIE scattering-induced radiometric and polarimetric phenomenon exhibited by clouds of aerosolized biological spo ...

  2. Bimetallic Nanoparticle Catalysts for Reforming of Logistics Fuels

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: A09AT018

    High efficiency, low pollution, and long lifetime make hydrogen-powered fuel cells desirable for portable power generation by the Army. However, it is impractical to transport hydrogen to where it is needed. Instead, reforming a transportable liquid fuel such as JP-8 or diesel fuel can produce the hydrogen for the fuel cell. Noble metal catalysts can speed this reforming, but they are expensive a ...

  3. Chemical-Biological Forensic Evidence Container with Agent and Tamper Resistant Tools

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: A10AT003

    The proposed research incorporates several inventions to produce structural components that can be assembled into a highly enhanced chemical-biological (CB) forensic evidence container for transport and storage of contaminated articles. Bio-hazardous materials are frequently encountered in standard investigations, and currently used evidence bags are designed to handle the containment and preserv ...

  7. An Automated, High Throughput, Filter-Free Pathogen Preconcentrator

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A10AT016

    Accurate real-time waterborne pathogen detection is of paramount importance to security of U.S. military forces and installations. Fieldable high-throughput pathogen concentration is a critical analytical need for enhanced detection performance. Existing concentration methods are time-consuming, bulky, labor-intensive, power- and reagent-hungry, and consequently ill-suited for battlefield deployme ...
