  1. 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 ...

  3. Optimized Drying of Nano sized anisotropic particles in suspensions to improved aerosol dispersions.

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: A09AT021

    The US Army has underscored the importance of developing more effective obscurant material for shielding US soldiers and their equipment from visible, microwave, and infrared observation. Current separation techniques tend to allow the nano-particles to agglomerate at higher density than desired for efficient obscurant devices. ElectroDynamic Applications, Inc. (EDA) in partnership with the Univ ...

  8. Leader-Following for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A10AT030

    TRACLabs Inc. has worked with NASA to create indoor/outdoor, vision-based leader-following systems for sparse, extra-terrestrial environments. Brown University's Robotics Group has demonstrated leader-following and gesture recognition in high-traffic, dynamic, indoor environments using active lidar sensing. We propose to combine our technologies in order to create a passive sensing system that w ...

  10. Resonant Cavity Enhanced On-Chip Raman Spectrometer Array with Precisely Positioned Metallic Nano-Gaps for Single Molecule Detection

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT014

    In this program, Omega Optics and the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop an on-chip surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectrometer array for single molecule detection. The sensitivity of the SERS spectrometer comes from the 5-nm gap between gold nanowires, which can achieve 108 enhancement factor (EF) for the Raman scattering signals. Especially, these gold nanowires are preci ...
