  1. Broadband agile wavelength laser for chemical aerosol detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: A09AT020

    Chemical agents in aerosol form have been identified as a major threat, and there is now interest in applying the long wave infrared frequency agile laser sensor to detection of this important agent form. If successful, it would be possible to perform detection of chemical agent vapors and aerosols and biological aerosol agents with a single dual-use sensor. To accomplish this, it is critical to ...

  2. Portable Microfluidic Three Component Blood Separator

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A10AT026

    Infoscitex and Columbia University propose to develop an automated blood component separation system that can quickly and automatically separate blood into three components for the US Army to use under field conditions. In this Phase I program, the team will prove the feasibility of separating whole blood into RBC, platelet rich plasma and acellular plasma using a high volume microfluidic technolo ...

  3. Nonlinear Laser Wave Mixing for Trace Detection of Explosives

    SBC: Audentia, Inc.            Topic: A12aT016

    Audentia, Inc., proposes to develop and demonstrate a sensitive nonlinear laser wave mixing-based detector that offers standoff detection of explosive chemicals in their native states at ambient temperature and pressure using a compact rugged solid-state laser-based design. The wave-mixing signal is a coherent laser-like beam, and hence, it offers a standoff detection distance that is longer than ...

  4. Social Media Analysis and Reasoning Tool (SMART)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A12aT009

    The proliferation of social media technologies has provided a promising new source of information for intelligence analysts. Effective use of this data could provide insight into the evolution of social networks, identification of communication patterns that lead to events of interest, and analysis of relevant socio-cultural factors and trends. However, intelligence analysts frequently have diffic ...

  5. Coherent Beam Combining of Mid-IR Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A10AT007

    Military applications, such as IRCM (Infrared Countermeasures) and stand-off sensing, require highly efficient optical sources with power outputs for room temperature continuous wave operation of several to a hundred watts in the 3-5 micron and 8-12 micron spectral bands. While quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) have become the sources of choice in these spectral regions, the only realistic option to ...

  6. Multi-input Multi-output Synthetic Aperture Radar with Collocated Antennas

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: A10AT005

    The enormous effort devoted to the data acquisition, signal processing, and automatic recognition of stationary targets has resulted in a generation of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems that are meeting the challenge of real-world conditions. However, in a practical battlefield, moving targets may pose a more severe threat than stationary targets. Many high value targets are only vulnerable w ...

  7. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Orthogonal Spectroscopic Detection

    SBC: Applied Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    US forces are increasingly involved in asymmetric warfare, peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance missions. These scenarios can place soldiers in direct contact with harmful biological and chemical warfare organisms and agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and explosives. Current portable sensor technology solutions rely on visible and near-IR Raman or Fluorescence spectroscopy. But operations ...

  8. Chip-Scale Photonics for Wide Temperature and High-Speed Optical Interconnects

    SBC: ULTRA COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: A12aT008

    This program will create 40 Gbps VCSEL-based micro-transceiver (uTRX) components that operate reliably over the standard military temperature range of -55°C to 125°C in Army environments. uTRXs are low-cost, compact components that can be assembled into the PCB in close proximity to high-performance ASICs using conventional solder-reflow"pick-and-place"assembly. The small PCB footprint and sol ...

  9. Impact of Climate Change on Military Compounds in the Environment

    SBC: Environmental Quality Management            Topic: A09AT024

    This will facilitate the development of remedial approaches for existing facilities and assist in planning new facilities, logistics, and procedures to protect the environment without impairing critical mission functionality. The commercial application will include software distribution and updates.

  10. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...
