  1. Fiber Laser Beam Combining for High Efficiency and Light-Weight HEL Systems

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A06208

    Aculight proposes a fiber beam combining approach that provides the efficiency, thermal management, power-independent beam quality and ruggedness of fiber lasers with a system architecture scaleable to 10 kW and beyond. The approach is scaleable to 100+kW for military directed energy applications such as defense against rockets, artillery and mortars (RAM). The proposed work leverages Aculight†...

  2. Man-portable Ultrafast Fiber Laser for Remote Sensing of Chemical, Biological, and Explosive Hazards

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A06062

    An all-fiber-based femtosecond laser featuring a large-core Yb-doped photonic crystal fiber amplifier is proposed. The laser can generate pulse energies in excess of 0.1 mJ while retaining a compact, modular, rugged architecture amenable to rapid field deployment in Laser-Induced-Breakdown-Spectroscopy (LIBS) sensors.

  3. Novel Protein Nanodelivery Systems for Biological Agent Countermeasures

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A04192

    We propose to continue the development and characterization of a polymeric nanoencapsulation technology that can increase the lifetime of a protein therapeutic agent within a biological system. The materials have been demonstrated to exhibit no cytotoxicity and to efficiently deliver antibody against Protective Antigen of bacillus anthracis.

  4. Rapid Detection of Acetylcholinesterase-Inhibiting Pesticides in Water Using a Handheld Assay and Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06159

    We propose that a comparative colorimetric assay be developed that will use a ticket of the same dimensions as the current ANP immunoassay tickets. This will allow the AChE test to be conducted using a similar workflow as the lateral flow immunoassay-based HHAs and be similarly read on the ANP reader to yield an unambiguous result independent of user judgment.

  5. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Low-light-level photodetector arrays are proposed for detecting the weak optical emission spectra from the trace atoms in the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The proposed semiconductor image intensifier and low-light-level camera utilize the miniaturized and monolithically integrated version of a proven solid-state detector technology, and is expected to be able to detect femto-watts ...

    SBC: BKF Systems            Topic: A06135

    This research addresses the rising critical need for automated conflation of vector/raster data as more and more high resolution data are collected for updates/improvement of graphic products employed in various mission areas of the Army and other user communities. Our conflation methodology derives from the integration of two well-established conflation approaches, and is developed with a prelim ...

  7. Photonic Multi-Channel Transmit/Receive Integrated Phase and Amplitude Controller

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: A04035

    The development of compact Gbit/sec bandwidth Army free-space, laser communication systems require a new generation of fiber-optic, high-speed, multi-channel beam controllers. EOSPACE proposes a new and unique Transmit/Receive Integrated Phase and Amplitude Controller (TRIPAC) for these applications. Polarization and wavelength multiplexing techniques are used to achieve simultaneous transmit and ...

  8. An Integrated Thrust Control Solution

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: A04174

    GHKN Engineering, LLC and Aerojet Sacramento have joined together to develop a solid rocket motor (SRM) integrated thrust control system (ITCS) adaptable for a family of missile systems. These companies bring extensive experience in the key areas required for design and development of thrust management systems. During Phase I (ITCS), the design and performance parameters established indicate the p ...

  9. Field Deployable Diagnostic Test for Active Cutaneous Leishmania and a Test for Latent Infection

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A04177

    The proposed immunochromatographic diagnostic test would be a useful rapid diagnostic test for the direct detection of leishmania parasites responsible for cutaneous leishmaniasis in soldiers exhibiting skin lesions.It would have application in detecting leishmania parasites directly from needle aspirates/swabs/scrapings of skin lesions in a field environment hence facilitating accurate treatment. ...

  10. A Multiplexed Point-of-Care Assay for the Detection of Enteric Pathogens that Cause Severe Diarrhea in Deployed Soldiers

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A06158

    The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field-grade, screening assay for the detection of severe diarrheal disease-causing pathogens including E. coli O157, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Cryptosporidium spp., Campylobacter spp., Noroviruses, and Rotaviruses. The test will utilize lateral flow (dipstick) chromatography incorporated into a unique, multiplex cassette that enables the s ...
