  1. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    During Phase I, we have conducted proof-of-principle experiments to fabricate exchange-coupled isotropic permanent magnets with SmFeN-Fe4N compositions employing shock wave consolidation technique. We have also successfully synthesized nearly 100% Fe16N2 in bulk form. Under this Phase II plan, we propose to optimize and further enhance the isotropic exchange-coupled permanent magnets with higher e ...

  2. Detection of Explosive Materials Using an Encapsulated Fluorescent Bioprobe

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A06T025

    The use of explosives over the last 100 years has left up to 16,000 military ranges contaminated with highly toxic compounds. A major challenge to the remediation of these ranges is identifying the location of persistent explosives residues. To meet this challenge, Agave BioSystems in collaboration with Universities Space Research Agency (USRA) is developing an encapsulated fluorescent bioprobe ...

  3. Control of Dislocations for Improved IR Sensors Using Epitaxial Necking

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A06T021

    It is well established that in order to produce large-format LWIR HgCdTe FPAs for third-generation IR systems, Si substrates must be used. In the DoD Militarily Critical Technologies List (December 2005), HgCdTe/Si is listed as a critical material and achieving an etch pit density (EPD) < 1x106 cm-2 is identified as a critical technology parameter. Thus it is imperative that a manufacturable techn ...

  4. Light Filament Sensor

    SBC: Applied Energetics, Inc.            Topic: A06T017

    The formation and use of optical filaments resulting from high-power, ultrashort pulses propagating within the atmosphere is currently an active area of research for military and commercial applications. Optical filaments can be used to ionize molecules and atoms and produced related spectral emissions. Importantly, the range at which the filament formation occurs within the atmosphere can be cont ...

  5. Low Power MEMS Retroreflectors for Optical Communications

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: A06T005

    Optical communication is emerging rapidly as a critical need for military operations. Through pioneering work in optical micro-electrical mechanical systems (MEMS) devices, the project team has created new technologies that can expand the capabilities of existing Warfighter equipment including NIR laser aiming/illumination with I2 night vision, laser rangefinding, laser target designation, and sh ...

  6. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    Mefloquine is known to cause adverse neurological effects, possibly attributable to single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Our objective is to develop a genetic screen capable of determining the susceptibility of an individual to Mefloquine neurotoxicity. In Phase I, transcriptional profiling of primary neurons exposed to Mefloquine was used to construct an intracellular pathway model to explain ...

  7. High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Bone Conduction Communication Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T033

    Warfighters increasingly rely on radio communication equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. Current military communication gear involves headphones and acoustic microphones. Unfortunately, headphones cover the ears and deteriorate detection and localization of ambient sounds that may be important for tactical situations. An alternative to air conduction is bo ...

  8. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  9. Prediction of the Degradation of Composite Materials for Emerging Army Facilities

    SBC: DUTTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A06T027

    An innovative methodology, based on mechanistic models, will be developed for prediction of long-term (25+ years) durability of composites for the US Army's emerging facilities in different climatic zones. Accelerated testing simulating the Army's composites applications in various constructions and fields will validate it. Phase I developed the basic predictive tool using the Arrehenius principle ...

  10. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    In the Phase I program, EPIR Technologies successfully developed a technology for real-time, simultaneous detection of several types of biological agents using a novel FRET-based detection technique. The development of multiplexed detection capabilities with extremely low false positives in this Phase I program allowed EPIR to establish improved standards in biosensing. Innovative surface modifica ...
