  1. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  3. A Field Deployable Biomarker Sensing Technology

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF06035

    The monitoring of biomarkers is a viable way to determine the health of an individual, the presence of disease, and the possible exposure to toxic chemicals such as biological warfare agents. A deployable biomarker panel sensor that is reagentless and could be deployed for weeks would allow field medics to save soldiers lives through rapid diagnosis, prevention, and improved triage all directly in ...

  4. A Low Power, Low Noise, Electrochemically Driven Air Pump for Portable Fuel Cell Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD05MT5

    Lynntech proposes to develop a low power, low noise, electrochemically driven air pump for portable fuel cell systems. Air delivery is achieved using a dual-diaphragm pump actuated via Lynntech's highly energy efficient electrochemical pump. In Phase I a prototype pump will be developed to demonstrate the feasibility of a five-fold reduction in size and weight over conventional air pumps. Operat ...

  5. A Low-Cost Chemical Remediation Technology for Chromium in Shipyard Stormwater

    SBC: SIROM SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N06133

    A novel remediation method to reduce environmental and human health risk from Cr(VI) in shipyard stormwater is in the process of being developed by SIROM Scientific Solutions. We have successfully pre-tested a low-cost, environment-friendly material to remove Cr(VI) from shipyard stormwater. We propose to use this novel material in an easily-depoyable fixed bed reactor to reduce the amount of Cr(V ...

  6. A Low-Cost Chemical Remediation Technology for Chromium in Shipyard Stormwater

    SBC: SIROM SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N06133

    The goal of this project is to design a cost-effective, environment-friendly, and novel remedial system that is able to remove chromium and other metal contaminants, such as copper and zinc from stormwater in shipyards as well from metal enriched wastewater generated by other industries. During Phase I of the project, we developed a sorbent material from an industrial waste byproduct and a labora ...

  7. A Novel Route for The Production of Net Shaped Transparent Spinel for Infrared Applications

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF06093

    Optical quality spinel (MgAl2O4) is finding an increased number of applications for military acquisition, tracking and pointing systems as well as ground vehicle and aircraft armor. This spinel offers a lower cost substitute for presently used sapphire without compromising the needed strength for applications in infrared windows and missile domes. Lynntech Inc., proposes a novel thermo-reversible ...

  8. A Novel, Hybrid Desalination System for One-Man Survival Kit

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF06039

    There exists a dire need for a reliable, lightweight, easy-to-use device capable of producing potable water for an individual from a saline water source (Seawater or brackish). The device should be as lightweight as possible (on the order of 1 pound) and capable of providing 40 ml/min of drinkable water. The proposed device should be easy to use and require as little energy as possible from the op ...

  9. A Plasma-Based Multi-Fuel Reformer

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF05282

    Inexpensive methods of producing large amounts of high-quality hydrogen are critical barriers to the implementation of a hydrogen-based transportation economy. Technology has been rapidly progressing in the field of hydrocarbon reformers; however, no single reformer currently exists that can reform both liquid and gaseous hydrocarbon feed stocks into hydrogen gas. During Phase I, Lynntech demons ...

  10. A Small, Portable, and Powerless Sterilization System for Medical/Dental Instruments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05167

    Lynntech proposes to develop a small, light-weight, and powerless steam sterilization system for the DOD to sterilize medical and dental instruments in environments where standard non-portable, power-consuming sterilization methods are limited and/or unavailable. The system includes small, disposable cartridges that exploit well-known exothermic and endothermic reactions to rapidly sterilize and ...
