  1. Durable Aerosol and Liquid Repellent coatings

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: CBD161002

    Chemical and biological (CB) warfare agents are a serious threat to our soldiers and national security. Different warfare agents and microbes may be delivered using solids (powders, particulates, ice crystals), hydrosols (air borne liquid droplets), or aerosols (air-born particulates). Solids, hydrosols, or aerosols can penetrate, accumulate, and transport through both porous and non-porous surfac ...

  2. Detection of"active"biological toxins by exploiting native binding specificities

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: CBD14101

    A chemical threat agent mode of action is often initiated through a selective interaction with a biological molecule or structure. The agent binding mimics normal cellular processes, but then overruns natural control mechanisms leading to toxic and even lethal effects. The binding may be used as a basis for sensing the agent. By exploiting the native binding mechanism, a sensing element can be des ...

  3. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: CBD11102

    Hyperspectral imaging systems acquire the spatial and spectral information of the image scene simultaneously, and thus find important applications in remote sensing, military surveillance, and target identification. Most contemporary hyperspectral imaging systems operate at UV/VIS/NIR (ultra violet/visible/near infrared) spectrums. However, in many cases, especially in military applications, (hype ...

  4. Improved M8 Chemical Agent Detector Paper for Facilities Monitoring

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD11103

    The goal of this Phase I project is to develop coatings for M8 paper that improve its robustness and rate of detection of potential liquid/aerosol chemical warfare attack at fixed military sites and installations. A problem that is currently experienced with M8 paper is that it is easily contaminated by dust or destroyed by rain and thus requires frequent replacement in outdoor environments. Our ...

  5. In vitro Models Suitable for High-throughput Screening of Drug Toxicities in Human Tissues

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: CBD10103

    The drug R&D cycle is long and very expensive. In many ways, this status quo can no longer be sustained. One of the reasons for such great cost is that the vast majority of drug candidates are screened out at the stages of animal and human trials. More efficient methods of testing of drugs at the stage of ex-vivo studies, which are substantially less expensive than animal and human testing cyc ...

  6. Low-Output High Precision Automated Powder Disseminator

    SBC: ADVANCED MECHANICAL SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,            Topic: CBD06101

    This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop a high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to release a precise amount of C&B agents in the controlled detection experiments. However, such a technology does not exist at the present time. After examining existing technologies, we believe that the r ...

  7. Lightweight Biosensor Badge to Monitor Environmental Organophosphates

    SBC: ADVANCED SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The US Joint Services, Federal Agencies, and state and local First Responders have expressed dissatisfaction with currently employed organophosphate (OP) sensors. They have identified the need for a new generation of sensors that is small, light-weight,and easy to use while being capable of extended operations in rugged environments. Advanced Sensor Technologies proposes to address these issues w ...

  8. New DNA/RNA Sequencer for Rapid Assessment of Exposure to Infectious Agents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of terrorist or military attack using biological or chemical warfare agents is one of the largest concerns to U.S. military forces. Development of defense initiatives that can be implemented to decontaminate personnel, equipment and buildingsare required to counter the effects of such an attack. A series of dendrimer-quaternary ammonium compound (QAC) biocides have been identified that ...

  9. Materials Research for the Development of Agent Standard Reference Materials and Analytical Test Apparatus

    SBC: DAKOTA ANALYTICAL SOLUTIONS            Topic: CBD06106

    Development and production of semi-permeable and permselective polymer membranes can fill a critical need for standard reference materials for AVLAG, CBART, and IPE acquisition programs. Optimizing the permselectivity of tri-block copolymers to specific chemical agents, non-traditional agents, and toxic industrial chemicals and materials will result in the formation of suitable and affordable ref ...

  10. Polyamidoamine-Organosilicon Dendrimer Coatings for Vapor Phase Cyanide Removal

    SBC: DENDRITECH, INC            Topic: CBD04301

    Since 1993, ASZM-TEDA carbon has been the standard filtration material used by the U.S. military for protection against nerve, blister and blood agents, and other maliciously delivered air contaminants. Although ASZM-TEDA effectively removes these contaminants, alternative air filtration media are sought to ameliorate bulky, unwieldy designs necessitated by current technology. Additional improveme ...
