  1. Microfiber-Based Closures with Hermetic Sealing for Chem Bio Protective Garments

    SBC: nanoGriptech, Inc.            Topic: CBD13109

    In previous SBIR Phase I/II work, nanoGriptech developed novel microfiber-based hybrid closure systems inspired by the foot-hairs on geckolizards which demonstrated the strength of military grade hook and loop systems with hermetically-sealable properties for improvedchem/bio protection. In this Sequential SBIR Phase II project, nanoGriptech will develop methods to integrate these innovative faste ...

  2. Tomographic Nanoscopy for Pathogen Identification

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: CBD171003

    This effort will augment the capabilities of an existing all reflecting, confocal FTIR microscope to allow for digital holographic imaging as wellspectral content determination at video frame rates. The use of a dual beam frequency comb, with a beam path coincident with the pathrequired for the digital holographic imaging, will allow spectral determination of any organism being holographically ima ...

  3. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  4. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic airgaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare is developinghermetic garment closure systems that seal macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and provide high c ...

  5. High Performance Computing (HPC) Tools for Topology Aware Mapping of Inter-node communication

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: DTRA172002

    This proposal describes the development of a generalized toolkit that enables improved and automated mapping of partitioned subdomains onto available distributed compute nodes for applications operating within pure-MPI or hybrid-MPI parallel runtime environments. This toolkit may be invoked either as an independent pre-processing step or as a dynamic library, improving an applications real-time do ...

  6. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  7. Medical Countermeasure Development for Viral Induced Encephalitis Using Single DomainAntibodies

    SBC: Abzyme Therapeutics, LLC            Topic: CBD161004

    Alphaviruses, infection with which may cause encephalitis and death, are recognized as potential biological warfare agents. There are noapproved medical countermeasures against Alphaviruses. In Phase I, using Abzymes proprietary in vivo Self-Diversifying Camelid SingleDomain Antibody Library (SDALib) platform, broadly reactive single domain camelid VHH antibodies against equine encephalitis viral ...

  8. CBRN Sensor and Sensor Netting Algorithms

    SBC: MESH, INC.            Topic: CBD09110

    Being proposed is a way to integrate the inputs from multiple sensors and different types of sensors to produce a map of the chemical threat. This technique weights every input based on type of sensor, minimum detectable level, health and status of each instrument, and time and position errors. The Sensor Netting Algorithm (SNA) will be based on tomography with weighting factors. The output will ...

  9. Distributed Thermal Imaging Spectrometer for Force Protection

    SBC: MESH, INC.            Topic: CBD09108

    This proposal describes how a very low cost hyperspectral imager can be built. The key to the low cost is the use of a commercially available thermal camera based on uncooled microbolometer as the detecting element. An interferometer is placed in front of the camera to produce the spectrum. Each frame of the camera captures one point of the interferogram, producing a hyperspectral image at 4cm- ...

  10. Bio-Inspired Dry Fibrillar Adhesives for Enhanced Sealing of Respiratory Protective Masks

    SBC: nanoGriptech, Inc.            Topic: CBD09102

    NanoGriptech LLC proposes to develop repeatable skin adhesives using technology inspired by the feet of geckos and insects. These adhesives will be integrated into full facemask respirators to reduce or replace head harness straps, which are currently used to hold the facemasks in place. Expected benefits are improved fit, resistance to shifting, improved sealing, and reduced discomfort and tiss ...
