  1. Biosensor for Detection of Synthetic Cannabinoids

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX, INC.            Topic: A17AT014

    Recreational drug use by military personnel can impact soldier preparedness and performance especially in difficult and demanding environments. One challenge for monitoring illicit drug use is that current tests rely on the identification of specific chemical structures. Small variants in the chemistry of a drug can evade detection. In this Phase I SBIR, we will develop a lateral flow test that ...

  2. Bioaerosol Detector Wide Area Network

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: A17AT020

    Historically, the monitoring and detection of biological threats has been carried out via the deployment of high sensitivity / high complexity monitoring nodes to insure high probability of detection and low false alarm rate. Unfortunately, this detection strategy has inherent limits with respect to coverage and response due to its high deployment/support costs, mandating a new approach to environ ...

  3. Provably Unclonable Functions on Re-configurable Devices

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A18BT001

    The ability to authenticate electronic devices is an important step towards modernizing the hardware/software of our Nations communication systems. Protecting these targeted networks and devices from malicious cyber-based attacks is becoming increasingly important as the technological and cyber capabilities of our adversaries continue to advance. In addition to network security, device authenticat ...

  9. 3D Tomographic Scanning Microwave Microscopy with Nanometer Resolution

    SBC: Alcatera Inc.            Topic: A17AT008

    Near-Field Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM) is a technique relying on a raster scan of a microwave probe across a sample surface, while measuring its reflected microwave signal. The existing technologies are limited to the surface analysis, and are not compatible with liquid environment. These limitations are addressed by the proposed wideband 3D tomography SMM with sub-surface analysis capabil ...

  10. Developing a Clostridium molecular toolkit for bioconversion of food waste

    SBC: SYNVITROBIO, INC.            Topic: A17AT011

    Waste generation at forward bases creates significant challenges; its disposal presents an economic cost with no direct benefit and its accumulation or burning is a health hazard. The bioconversion of waste into useful compounds could save thousands annually for every soldier and tens of millions in capital expenditure. However, widespread adoption is impeded by low conversion efficiency. We propo ...
