  1. Synergistic and Smart Micro-Controls for Enhanced SCBA Equipment

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: CBD14103

    This proposal outlines the successful demonstration of electrochemical CO2 removal that generates virtually no heat, from a humid breathing gas mixture. Mainstream evaluated micro-sensors for monitoring temperature, humidity, CO2, and O2 for breath monitoring for the self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Advanced CO2 separating technology combined with micro-sensors and controls allows for op ...

  2. Advanced Technologies for Reducing Decompression Obligation in Extreme Dives

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB131004

    Despite over 100 years of research, decompression sickness (DCS) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of deep combat dives. Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth. While decompressing, divers are limited in vertical mobility, making then susceptible to detection and threatening their survivability. Recen ...

  3. Light-weight, Low-volume, High Oxygen Storage Density Material for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: CBD12105

    This proposal outlines Mainstreams successful Phase I feasibility demonstration related to the fabrication of hierarchical hybrid nanomaterials for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 245% and 170%, respectively. Included in these storage density values is a solid-state oxygen regulation system that also enables comp ...

  4. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic garment closure system that seals macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and pro ...

  5. A Miniature Autoinjector for Multicomponent Drugs and Vaccines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13106

    Chemical, biological, or toxin attacks in military and civilian settings are a serious and growing concern. Standard first aid for exposure to some chemical warfare agents and toxins includes the immediate administration of relevant antidotes using an autoinjector. When an attack occurs, pre-filled autoinjectors must be immediately available and thus highly portable, and they must be suitable fo ...

  6. Software Tools for the Development and Reuse of Avatars with Culture-Specific Behaviors

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: SB041009

    For this Phase II SBIR Project, Vcom3D will develop and demonstrate a modular architecture for avatars whose behavior can be easily modified to model different cultures and contexts. Our approach will be to separate the "meaning and intent" of character interactions from the culturally-specific ways in which individual characters convey this meaning and intent through speech, gesture, and action. ...

  7. Novel SiGe Devices for Cryogenic Power Electronics

    SBC: GPD Optoelectronics Corporation            Topic: ST041002

    Power generation, power distribution and electric propulsion on ships and aerospace vehicles could be made smaller, lighter, more efficient, more versatile, and lower maintenance by operating these systems—partly or entirely—at cryogenic temperatures. Our goal is to demonstrate the advantages of cryogenic operation in regard to electronic components, specifically semiconductor devices (power d ...

  8. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  9. Compact and Efficient Cooling Techniques for High Energy Solid State Lasers

    SBC: RINI TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SB041032

    In Phase I of this effort RTI performed ammonia evaporative spray cooling (ESC) experiments on both 2 cm^2 and 21 cm^2 surfaces to establish feasibility and scalability of ESC to cool 500 W/cm^2 while maintaining temperature uniformity within +/-2.5C over the entire surface area. RTI's two-phase ESC approach achieved this performance with 10x less coolant flow rate than traditional single-phase w ...

  10. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...
