  1. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...

  2. Monocular Unmanned Leader-Follower (MULE-F) System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT030

    The Army has a clear need for a small unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) capable of autonomously accompanying a single soldier or vehicle. Such a UGV would help solve both logistical problems of soldiers needing to transport more equipment and supplies than they can carry in a backpack, and tactical problems of scouting unsafe areas. Multiple designs for such UGVs exist; however, they require active re ...

  3. A Near Autonomous Combat Casualty Extraction Robotic System

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: A10AT028

    Hstar proposes a near autonomous combat casualty extraction robot (c2Exbot) system that: 1) supports autonomous dexterous manipulation, safe patient lifting and near autonomous navigation control, 2) utilizes a supervisory telepresence operation mechanism, 3) provides near autonomous patient diagnosis, injury assessment and emergency treatment, and d) provides semi-autonomous patient monitoring an ...

  4. Fully Integrated System for Pathogen Concentration and Detection in Water Supplies

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10AT016

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes an innovative, filter free approach to rapidly concentrate and detect bacterial spores from large volumes of flowing water for the purpose of early warning detection of contaminated potable water supplies against low concentration biological pathogens. Our approach builds on previous concentration work to study the feasibility of optimizing this approach and lays t ...

  5. Formulation and Production of Biological Agent Spectroscopic Simulant Particles

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10AT017

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to demonstrate environmentally benign, low cost biological agent simulant particles that mimic the infrared, scatter, fluorescence and atomic absorption spectra of bacillus subtilis (BG), Erwinia herbicola (EH), and the MS2 Bacteriophage (MS2). These stimulant particles will be composed of materials that are commonly available foods or nutritional supplement ...

  6. Dynamic 3-D Threat Mapping Using a Sensor Constellation Deployed on Mobile Platforms

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10AT022

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its partners, Research Support Systems (RSI, a PSI-subsidiary) and Professor Thomas Strohmer of UC Davis, propose to develop an innovative approach that can be employed by an ‘on-the-move’ sensor constellation to determine the size (length, width, and height), absolute geo-location, and 3-D concentration distribution of chemical threat clouds released on battle ...

  7. UV Beam Conditioner for Quantum Computing

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10AT008

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Duke University propose to develop a hybrid, multifunctional, ultraviolet (UV) beam conditioner intended for laser beam switching, deflection, and frequency shifting for quantum computing applications. The beam conditioner consists of three functional blocks, separating the technology for frequency control, fast amplitude control, and electronic beam shuttering int ...

  8. BRDF Analysis of LADAR-based Target Surface Characterization

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A10AT006

    LADAR light reflection from a target is highly dependent of the spectral reflectivity and texture properties of the surface. Such dependencies could be exploited for target recognition based on surface characterization with appropriate imaging conditions and processing algorithms. Target surface light reflection is characterized by the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF), which ...

  9. Portable Microfluidic Three Component Blood Separator

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A10AT026

    Infoscitex and Columbia University propose to develop an automated blood component separation system that can quickly and automatically separate blood into three components for the US Army to use under field conditions. In this Phase I program, the team will prove the feasibility of separating whole blood into RBC, platelet rich plasma and acellular plasma using a high volume microfluidic technolo ...

  10. Narrowband Microbolometer Infrared Detectors for Chemical and Biological Sensing

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A10AT023

    A narrow-band microbolometric detector is proposed to the address need for a low-cost, portable system to perform chemical and biological threat detection. An approach is shown to achieve a narrow-band bolometric detector whose response can be tailored to both a desired peak wavelength and bandwidth. The approach will enable the design of an array of detectors meeting the requirements for chemical ...
