  1. PDA-EDIT Scanner for Coast Guard Ship Inspection

    SBC: BFA Sales, Inc.            Topic: HSB041007

    The technology to be developed in the Phase I efforts is based on prior research in Electromagnetic (EM) gradiometry and Resonant Microstrip Patch Antenna (RMPA). The combination of these approaches has been used in successful demonstrations in the mining industry for determining coal depth and scanning ahead for barriers/obstructions. Each technology has been proven to mitigate specific problems ...

  2. A Novel, Low Power, High Throughput, High Efficiency, Scalable Electrostatic Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB041003

    Current bioaerosol monitoring strategies rely on inertia-based sampling and suffer from high power consumption and low efficiency limitations. In contrast, our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a novel electrostatic sampler that provides dramatic improvements including low power requirement (90% for 1-10mm), high viability (>80%), scalability for varying threat scenarios, low noise, a ...

  3. On-Site Generation- The Safe, Effective, and Low Cost Disinfection Strategy

    SBC: MIOX Corporation            Topic: HSB042003

    On-site generation technology utilizes common salt (sodium chloride) which is made in to a dilute brine solution that is converted in an electrolytic cell to a chlorine-based liquid disinfectant. The chlorine component is important since the US EPA requires a chlorine disinfection residual value in drinking water in the United States. There are no hazardous materials used, consumed or produced in ...

  4. Ultra-lightweight modular cooling system

    SBC: NanoPore Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Active cooling of HAZMAT and SWAT team members can significantly improve their performance in critical situations. However, current cooling systems are heavy, bulky, and don`t provide adequate cooling rates. By employing a new meso-channel adsorption bed using high capacity, sheet desiccants operated in a ambient-air cooled cross-flow mode, cooling capacities of 50 to 125 W can be generated with w ...

  5. Marine Asset Security Monitoring and Tracking System

    SBC: Navigational Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB041005

    The worldwide ocean going freight transportation infrastructure, known as the Marine Transportation System (¿MTS¿) is the cornerstone of the global economic well-being. Approximately ninety percent of all cargo moves via the MTS. However, one need only look to the open movement of containerized cargo to find simple, effective, and efficient means of large-scale economic damage. The result is a c ...

  6. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  7. Marine Asset Tag Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) using a breakthrough wireless tracking technology called near field electromagnetic ranging (NFER¿). The primary objective of Phase I is to validate that NFER¿ technology is the best RF solution for tracking containers on ships and in ports. Phase I will also (1) develop an overall architecture for the MATTS; (2) design the container tag; ...

  8. Phage Derived Receptor Scaffold

    SBC: WELD STAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The risk of biological terrorism is significant because of the high potency, widespread availability, and ease of dissemination of some biological threat agents. The earliest recognition of a bioterrorist attack may be indicated only by the clinical manifestation of the intended disease which, in some cases, can take days to weeks to present itself. Furthermore, laboratory confirmation of the diag ...

  9. Advanced Microcalorimeter Instrumentation for X-Ray Microanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    An innovative superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter array with superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) readouts is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength disp ...

  10. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...
