  1. Improved M8 Test Paper for Chemical Agent Detection

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD11103

    Detection of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) such as V, H, and G agents is currently performed using the easy-to-use, simple, and rapid M8 test papers to detect and differentiate among these agents. However, frequent replacement is usually required for these test papers in outdoor applications because of the degradation by exposure to sun, dust, and rain. Moreover, visual inspection is needed to as ...

  2. Advanced Transmitter for Chem-Bio Standoff Detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: CBD11106

    As a natural extension of the Phase I results, novel laser LWIR transmitters will be developed, demonstrated, and delivered to support development of next generation point and local area proximal standoff sensors based on newly demonstrated phenomenologies to simultaneously detect biological particles, chemical vapors, and chemical aerosols with a single device. The transmitters will feature rapid ...

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

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is a highly effective non-contact laser remote sensing method for detecting and identifying chemicals in every-day field environments. Raman spectroscopy is particularly suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents. Contemporary systems, such as the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface D ...

  5. Development of an in vitro assay as correlate of passive immune protection against botulinum neurotoxin to minimize use of whole animal testing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    This Small Business Innovation Research project will develop a non-animal based in vitro assay for determining the efficacy of Botulinum (BoNT) neutralizing therapeutics. New technologies are currently needed in order to facilitate the development and approval of BoNT vaccines and therapies and reduce the number of vertebrate animals used in medical testing. In Phase 1 of this project, the feasibi ...

  6. Automatic Assay of Blood Cholinesterase in the Field

    SBC: KUMETRIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a critical need for rapid, accurate measurement of serum cholinesterase activity in the field to provide a timely determination of nerve agent exposure. The overall objective of the project is to develop an easy-to-use analytical system consistingof small, inexpensive (and therefore disposable) silicon microchips used with a portable instrument, thus permitting field cholinesterase measur ...

  7. Thermal Infrared Surface Contamination Sensor

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    A thermal infrared imaging spectrometer is proposed for the remote detection and identification of surface contaminants. The instrument will use a high power, pulsing CO2 laser to vaporize the liquids while it scans the target scene generating 3Dspectral-images. The instrument will be pre-programmed with a library of contamination filters that can automatically identify contaminants that could b ...
