  1. Regenerable, heat-Abating, humidity-Neutralizing, Carbon diOxide Removal System (RANCOR) Phase II

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: CBD12106

    In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the point where ice or other cooling systems will no longer be required. In Phase II Paragon will introduce ...

  3. Global Spatiotemporal Disease Surveillance System

    SBC: Cellmic, LLC            Topic: CBD13102

    Rapid screening of chemical/biological threats and infectious diseases is a challenging task especially in remote locations due to the lack of appropriate laboratory infrastructure and advanced instrumentation. In such resource-scarce settings, wireless, robust, accurate, and easy-to-use diagnostics tools are required to enable real-time monitoring of various medical conditions, point-of-care appl ...

  4. Advanced Real-Time Surface Contamination Sensor

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: CBD13103

    An advanced sensor for proximal detection of contaminants on surfaces is proposed based on hyperspectral differential polarization reflection of LWIR radiation from an active IR source, blackbody lamp or wavelength agile laser and an advanced unmixing algorithm whose feasibility was demonstrated by field test data in the Phase I program. The high signal-to-noise ratios provided by the active irrad ...

  5. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is well suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents, illicit drugs, or specific combinations of indicator chemicals used in processing nuclear materials. An example mobile Raman spectroscopy system is the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface Detector (JCSD), which uses a gaseous KrF exc ...

  6. Rapid biodosimetry for accurate assessment of individual radiation exposure levels

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: CBD13108

    In the event of a catastrophic radiation disaster, first responders, both civilian and military, must be able to quickly and accurately measure the radiation dose received by victims in order to screen, perform triage and effectively assign available resources. First-responders must also be able to accurately evaluate their own exposure to radiation in order to make return-to-duty decisions in rea ...

  7. Handheld IR Raman Spectroscopy for Rapid Chemical Identification

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: CBD08102

    In Phase I, Aerius Photonics demonstrated Raman spectroscopy at 785 nm, 980 nm, and 1064 nm, with only 1064 nm-based excitation showing a reduction in fluorescence. In addition, Aerius Photonics and partner Ahura Scientific, demonstrated a breadboard version of an InGaAs-based Raman spectrometer to assess any engineering challenges. By the end of a Phase III, Aerius proposes to develop a handheld ...

  8. Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System

    SBC: Spectrum Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD09108

    Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and com ...

  9. Durable Anti-fog Coatings for Contoured Plastic Substrates Using Nanoparticles with Tunable Size and Surface Chemistry

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD09101

    Currently fielded respiratory protective systems in the Joint Services General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) program degrade in visual performance capability in extreme hot and cold environments. Optical and mechanical properties of existing anti-fog coatings also diminish when subjected to cleaning/sanitization operations. To address these needs, InnoSense LLC (ISL), in Phase I, has combined nanomaterials ...
