The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. CW Indicating Chromophore for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD04103

    In Phase I, Nomadics demonstrated that a novel chemical weapon indicating chromophore (CWIC) developed by Professor Tim Swager at MIT will allow equipment to be quickly and easily examined to show any areas of contamination, making targeted decontamination manageable. When exposed to CW agent simulants, CWICs react to become fluorescent under UV stimulation. In the first phase, we implemented a s ...

  2. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates, Inc.            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is well suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents, illicit drugs, or specific combinations of indicator chemicals used in processing nuclear materials. An example mobile Raman spectroscopy system is the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface Detector (JCSD), which uses a gaseous KrF exc ...

  4. Signal Processing for Layered Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: CBD152006

    As a foundational component of a Layered Sensing architecture, Toyon proposes to develop a Multi-Modal Fusion Module (M2FM) capable ofconfirming detections from Chemical, Biological, and Radiological (CBR) sensing networks by fusing together information from other (non-CBR)sensors. In addition to confirming an initial CBR detection, M2FM will aid in characterizing the threat scenario by estimating ...

  7. Smartphone Application for Mask Sizing and Projecting Quantitative Fit

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Identifying the correct size of a full facepiece respirator for an individual requires a significant degree of skill. Furthermore, the fit assessment procedure is time consuming due to the series of tasks required to calculate the fit factor, a measure of the quality of fit. The Chemical and Biological Defense (CBD) program needs a quicker, less manually intensive, and more reliable method to sele ...

  9. Automated Visual Anthropometry for Three-dimensional Assessment of Respirators (AVATAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: CBD161005

    Military respirator masks provide the Warfighter with life critical protection against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN)threats. To ensure the safety, comfort, and effectiveness of the American Warfighter, it is essential that every Warfighter be assigned arespirator that is properly sized and fitted. However, current methods for sizing and fitting respirators depend on manual ...
