  1. Trace Explosives Particle and Vapor Sample Collection System Using Concentration of Scavenger Particles

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Enertechnix proposes to adapt its novel aerodynamic lens aerosol concentration technology to provide high flow rate, high efficiency sampling of particles and vapors for use in the detection of Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosives Devices. Our approach combines forced air jet(s) for dislodging particles and vapors from the vehicle surfaces, concentration and collection of dislodged particles, and s ...

  2. WISPER (Wireless Intelligent Sensor Platform for Emergency Responders)

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: HSB072004

    Oceanit proposes to develop a low cost, reliable, wireless mesh networking system that will enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency responders in hostile building environments. The heart of the system will use a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) wireless mesh networking IC platform for low-power and low-cost communications. By using a wireless mesh network, low-power wireless t ...

  3. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel proposes to develop fiber-coupled near-infrared avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers with photon detection efficiency (PDE) and dark count rate (DCR) with more than two orders of magnitude faster maximum count rate (MCR) than Geiger-mode APDs, which are constrained by a fundamental tradeoff between DCR and MCR: if the APD is cooled to reduce DCR, then its dead time must increase to avoid af ...

  4. Deep Submergence Rated Flexible Hoses and Piping System Connectors

    SBC: MEI-CHARLTON, INC.            Topic: SOCOM08002

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing flex hoses for hydraulic and other piping system interfaces that can withstand high pressure environments, hydrodynamic, and other forces unique to deep submergence system operating environments. This hose and connecter system coined FlexiHOSE© proposed by MEI-Charlton, Inc. (MEIC) will meet the need of operating under ...

  5. Aerosol Concentrator Employing Micro-Machined Aerodynamic Lenses

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project will develop a novel aerosol concentrator based on aerodynamic lens technology capable of achieving very high concentration factors in a compact device. This device will be fabricated in silicon using micro-fabrication methods resulting in low cost, compact size, high reliability, high throughput, and extremely high precision and repeatability. In this project we will develop ...

  7. Large Scale Neutralization and Safe Removal of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Isotron Corporation            Topic: HSB042004

    This proposal addresses the development of an advanced polymer-based system which possesses a reactive feature that serves to neutralize chemical agents and toxic industrial chemicals in-situ and on contact. The polymer system is designed to facilitate a rapid return-to-service of the contaminated area, such that emergency, rescue and other first response activities can take place safely during th ...

  8. Advanced Bioaerosol Samplers for Surveillance and Personal Monitoring

    SBC: MesoSystems Technology, Inc.            Topic: HSB041003

    Many integrated biodetection systems require an aqueous sample, with the notable exception being those based on mass spectrometry which frequently uses a dry sample (MALDI or pyrolysis). The two proposed air sampling technologies to be developed are amenable to dry or nearly dry sample collection, but yet both can deliver a final sample in an aqueous format autonomously. Furthermore, both offer si ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. High Efficiency, Dual-Mode Air Sampler

    SBC: Research International, Inc            Topic: HSB041003

    A compact, low power and low cost air sampler is proposed that utilizes a novel topology and two-stage design to concentrate respirable particulates. The proposed hardware and collection strategy minimizes problems associated with freezing conditions and provides a high air-to-liquid concentration ratio.
