  1. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17AT004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...

  3. Development of fluorescent liposomes to detect biological toxins using fluorescence resonance energy transfer

    SBC: DAKOTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Biological toxins are far more lethal than chemical warfare agents and are easily produced which makes them an ideal weapon for terrorist organizations. Toxins can be deployed either by direct contamination of food or water sources or as airborneaerosols. Researchers from Dakota Technologies, Inc. and North Dakota State University propose to synthesize polymerized liposomes to detect cholera to ...

  4. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  6. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...

  7. Fluorescent Coated Filters for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Microorganisms in Water

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Reliable and sensitive detection of microbial biowarfare agents (BWAs) such as Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, and Francisella tularensis is an important challenge for both military operations and domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We are proposing todevelop an antibody functionalized biomimetic polymer coating for filter membranes that will become fluorescent when exposed to samples containi ...

  8. Fluorescent Liposomes for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Toxins in Water

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Reliable and sensitive detection of potential biowarfare agent (BWA) toxins such as botulinum toxin, staphylococcal enterotoxin, saxitoxin, etc., is an important challenge during both military operations and for domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We proposeto develop biomimetic polymerized liposomes/antibody conjugates that will detect toxins in aqueous samples, and will be integrated into a porta ...

  9. Fouling-Resistant Ultrafiltration Membranes for Treatment of Oily Bilge Water

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

    There is a recognized need for more effective and economical treatment processes for oily bilge waters. Direct filtration through currently available ultrafiltration (UF) membranes is a mechanically simple process that can provide excellent effluent quality. A limitation to more extensive use of this technology is the tendency of the hydrophilic membranes currently used to foul in the presence of ...

  10. Membranes for Air Venting and Retaining VOCs in Gasoline Storage Tanks

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

    Fugitive emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from gasoline marketing facilities continues to be an energy, safety, and environmental issue. Beginning in model year 2000, all vehicles are required to have an onboard refueling vapor recovery (ORVR) system, which will increase fugitive emissions from refueling stations because of the interface between ORVR vehicles and gasoline station und ...
