  1. Extended Release of Pyridostigmine Bromide for Effectively Combating Nerve Agent Exposure

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD181004

    Chemical warfare agents such as the lethal nerve agent soman are a major source of risk to military personnel. Currently, pyridostigminebromide (PB) is the only FDA-approved pretreatment to counteract the effects of soman. The rationale behind PB administration is that it actsas a temporary inhibitor of AChE. This precludes nerve agents from irreversible inactivation of AChE, thereby mitigating th ...

  3. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Used for Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    Electro-optical infrared and long wavelength infrared detectors and sensors are increasingly important for the Chemical/Biological Defensecommunity. Solid-state optical cooler materials are in demand for replacing mechanical closed cycle coolers used in current LWIR standoffsensors to achieve cryogenic temperatures. Recent advances in optical cooling of rare-earth doped materials are pointing towa ...

  4. Sea Tag-SP: A family of acoustic enabled satellite tags for spawning detection and more

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 812

    Phase-1 demonstrated the powerful and unusual remote sensing opportunities available by adding acoustic signal detection to pop-up satellite tags (PSAT). The time and location of spawning define the starting point in the life history of fish. Yet this event, which is of critical importance to fishery researchers and managers seeking to gain an understanding of distinct reproductive populations and ...

  5. Development of a Functional Balloon-borne GNSS-RO System Prototype

    SBC: Night Crew Labs, LLC            Topic: 811

    The SBIR Phase II proposal outlines the approach of Night Crew Labs (NCL) in designing, and developing, and testing a system prototype to perform Global Navigation Satellite System radio occultations (GNSS-ROs) from a high-altitude balloon platform. NCL will continue building from the positive results achieved in Phase I that successfully demonstrated the feasibility of performing balloon-borne GN ...

  6. Fog Viewer

    SBC: Areté Associates            Topic: 826

    The presence of fog reduces visibility, contributing to unsafe conditions for many maritime tasks. The current system uses active backscatter and has high power requirements, high maintenance and replacement costs. Areté Associates’ innovative FogViewer system comprises a passive multi-spectral, multi-polarization sensor suite that leverages available degrees of freedom to best characterize the ...
