  1. Integrated Self-powered MEMS-Insect Swarms for biochemical detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: CBD09105

    In this program, Agiltron proposes the development of self-powered bio-mechanical swarms for detection and communication of biochemical agents for both civil and defense applications. We propose to integrate a micro electro-mechanical suite of sensors, actuators, power harvesters and electronics by surgical insertion during early metamorphosis of insects to allow rugged and reliable biomechanical ...

  3. Spectroscopic high throughput identification of protein variants

    SBC: Lexitek Inc            Topic: CBD09104

    Quantitative Raman spectroscopy offers a means of estimating concentrations of protein variants. The Raman spectrum can be a fingerprint of an individual molecule and features unique to functional groups. In conjunction with robust data analysis such as principal component analysis (PCA), chemometric assessment of a sample can be performed. As an optical technique, this approach can yield high-thr ...

  4. High-Speed Resonant FTIR Spectrometer for Surface Contaminant Measurements

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: CBD09107

    OPTRA proposes a high-speed resonant Fourier transform infrared (HSR-FTIR) spectrometer incorporating a multiple pass, reciprocating configuration and a resonant mirror structure to accomplish the scanning. The intended application is time-resolved thermal luminescence (TL) measurements of surface contaminants. The multiple pass configuration of the FTIR effectively reduces the physical stroke l ...

  5. Sensor Fusion Software Tool for CBRN Global Threat Prediction and Assessment

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD09110

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a software tool that is capable of fusing disparate data sources including hyperspectral standoff sensor data products, weather information, and point sensor data generated from a deployed network of sensors. The proposed software suite will be based on an algorithm that will compute the threat type, spatial and temporal concentration profiles as we ...

  6. Ultra High-Speed Spectroradiometry for Contamination Reconnaissance and Surveillance

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD09107

    Spectral Sciences, Inc. proposes an innovative ultrafast spectroradiometer for transient thermal event detection at surfaces in order to provide contamination avoidance and mitigation. The proposed system combines an adaptive, software programmable spectral filter with advanced signal processing algorithms to identify contaminates based on transient thermal excitation of a sample. The adaptive s ...

  7. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Doctrine for employment of canines in a CBRN environment has evolved into a Collective Protection approach. Providing COLPRO has several very significant implications for Canine kennels and shelters: „X The outer surface of the structure must be CB agent impervious „X The outer surface of the structure must resist effects of the decontamination process „X The system must provide the animal ...

  8. Electrically Switchable Surfaces for Vapor Stream Concentration(1001-344)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD09106

    Trace detection usually requires a vapor concentrator that collects dilute analytes from a vapor sample and delivers them at a higher concentration to the detector. For humid vapor streams, cryogenic vapor concentrators can be unacceptable due to the condensation of water. Many adsorbent vapor collectors have the disadvantage of long sampling times and sometimes require desorption temperatures t ...

  9. Anti-Fog Coating for Lenses(1001-348)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD09101

    Triton Systems Inc proposes to utilize its surface engineering technology to deposit ultra thin coatings onto lenses of respiratory protection systems that will promote spreading of water droplets thereby preventing fogging. This novel antifog coating will also be durable and dirt and oils resistant, and hence will not loose its antifog characteristics over time. The Phase I program will demonstra ...

  10. Bio-Inspired Dry Adhesive(1001-349)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD09102

    Triton Systems Inc. proposes to develop a bio-mimetic dry adhesive with micro/nano scale structures similar to gecko’s feet. This new dry adhesive is designed to have the features of good shear strength to hold more than 1 kg respirator mask on face, great peripheral sealing property to maintain good contact with facial skin surface in the presence of various contaminants, hygienic, durable, eas ...
