  1. Adaptive Hyperspectral Sensor for Battlefield Combustibles

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF04207

    The objective of this program is to develop a wide field of view spectral imaging sensor to support theater surveillance and intelligence. The AHS operates in the Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) band and provides day/night spectral target cueing, geolocation and identification of hot battlefield threats. Currently deployed EO sensors can measure broadband MWIR signals, but are incapable of providing adva ...

  2. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Dermal Medical Countermeasures for Chemical Weapons Exposure

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: CBD161003

    The skin is the first line of defense against chemical warfare agents including nerve agents and toxic industrial chemicals, providing a possible barrier or delay to systemic distribution. Some chemicals also can act directly on the skin including the vesicants sulfur mustard and lewisite. Early and rapid skin decontamination is extremely important following exposure to CWAs and TICs because it de ...

  5. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  6. Establishing and Maintaining Mission Application Trust in a Shared Cloud

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141040

    In December 2014, the DoD CIO directed that military services manage the migration of their respective applications from dedicated data centers owned and operated by the respective services, to the commercial cloud. This directive included processes and procedures to expedite the process and is a driving force behind the US Air Force (USAF) data center consolidation initiative. Consequently, the U ...

  7. 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 is developing hermetic garment closure systems that seal macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and provide high ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. High-Quality AlGaN Substrates for Optical and Electronic Applications

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF17AT024

    Kyma Technologies, the leading domestic supplier of crystalline III-N substrate materials, is teamed with leading AlGaN materials & device experts at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) to develop high-quality n-type conductive 2-inch diameter epi-ready free-standing AlGaN substrates in support of next generation AlGaN devices with applications in ultraviolet optoelectronics, power electronics, and ...

  10. LOW-COST INDICATOR AND DOSIMETER FOR WARFARE GASES

    SBC: Coal Gas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO CONDUCT PRELIMINARY TESTS ON A NOVEL CHEMISTRY WHICH COULD RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF A LOW COST WAFER WHICH CHANGES COLOR UPON EXPOSURE TO WARFARE GASES (WG). SIMILAR WAFERS WHICH WE DEVELOPED FOR OTHER GASES ARE ABOUT 2" X 1" X 1/16" AND WEIGH ABOUT 2.3 GM. THESE CHROMOSENSE (TM) WAFERS CAN DETECT HYDROGEN SULFIDE, ETC. IN 10-30 SEC. AT CONCENTRATIONS OF THE ...
