  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. Self-Detoxifying, Disposable Protective Garments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD06108

    There are many types of limited use or disposable protective garments and apparel designed to inhibit/retard the passage of hazardous liquids and biological contaminates through the garment to the wearer. The current state-of-the-art Chem-Bio protective suits contain carbon-beads layered into textile materials which adsorb toxic liquids and vapors. However, activated carbon imparts only partial p ...

  3. Reagentless and Realtime Detection of Airborne Microorganisms

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD06102

    The potential use of chemical and biological weapons for mass destruction is one of the most serious concerns facing the US defense forces. Currently available devices for collection and identification of biological agents require extensive sample preparation and well equipped laboratories. Other detection methods rely on fragile biomolecules like antibodies, nucleic acids, enzymes and/or other ...

  4. FRET-Aptamer Assays & Handheld Reader for Nerve Agent Metabolites

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: CBD06104

    Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple the speed and ultrasensitivity of one-step (“bind and detect”) fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) detection with the high affinity and selectivity of DNA aptamers (surrogate antibodies) to detect the phosphonic acid derivative metabolites of organophosphorous nerve agents in urine, blood, and other body fluids. In Pha ...

  5. Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA) Lightweight Field-Portable (Hand-Held) Medical Diagnostic Tool

    SBC: RAPID PATHOGEN SCREENING, INC.            Topic: CBD06104

    Various methods and techniques have been developed in the laboratory for the detection and identification of exposure to chemical warfare nerve agents (CWNAs). A broad range of analytical methods is available to screen urine, blood or body tissues for traces of CWNAs or their breakdown products. Laboratory-based methods allow the differentiation between CWNAs and non-CWNAs that are used in agric ...

  6. Auto-regenerating Decontaminant Coating for Fabrics and Surfaces

    SBC: ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY & EDUCATION CTR            Topic: N/A

    "The Department of Defense Chemical and Biological Defense Program has a need for a highly effective, relatively low cost, low human toxicity coating or surface treatment that can be applied to fabrics and other surfaces to render them self-decontaminatingto chemical and biological warfare agents. ETEC has identified a novel chemistry that promises to be a highly effective self-regenerating decont ...

  7. Automated Preferential Display for the Analysis of Gene Expression Profiles

    SBC: GENEXPRESS INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "GeneXpress Informatics, Inc. (GXI) and Dr. James P. Chambers of UTSA propose to develop a revolutionary differential gene display technology, called Preferential Display (PD) which will provide for a simplified, cost-effective method to identify thesegenes for use in discovering gene expression profiles without having any prior knowledge of an organism, tissue or biological samples' genome. The ...

  8. New DNA/RNA Sequencer for Rapid Assessment of Exposure to Infectious Agents

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The importance of DNA/RNA-based assays for detection of biological warfare agents, identification of diseases, genome sequencing, and environmental control is enormous and will inevitably increase. The challenge is the development of low cost andportable methods for sequencing DNA and RNA extracted from surfaces and fluids, to recognize exposure to biowarfare agents. All the conventional techn ...

  10. Development of Array-Based Universal Biosensing Devices Based Upon Intelligent Oligonucleotide Probe Sets

    SBC: Vitruvius Biosciences            Topic: N/A

    "The present proposal describes strategies leading to the development of an array-based universal biosensor for detecting and differentiating microbial species, or differentiating at the DNA or RNA level between cell types of the same species. The proposed strategy relies on the differential hybridization of genomic DNA, extrachromosomal DNA, mRNA, or ribosomal RNA from different sources to a comm ...
