  1. Extended Release of Pyridostigmine Bromide for Effectively Combating Nerve Agent Exposure

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD181004

    Chemical warfare agents such as the lethal nerve agent soman are a major source of risk to military personnel. Currently, pyridostigminebromide (PB) is the only FDA-approved pretreatment to counteract the effects of soman. The rationale behind PB administration is that it actsas a temporary inhibitor of AChE. This precludes nerve agents from irreversible inactivation of AChE, thereby mitigating th ...

  2. Advanced Solutions for Radiation Susceptibility Analysis & Prediction

    SBC: LUCID CIRCUIT, INC.            Topic: DTRA162006

    With the advent of high-density low-power sub-20nm technology processes and circuits with tens-of-billions of transistors, radiation-induced single-event effects present a new set of design challenges for terrestrial applications. Developing reliable single-event effect resilient microelectronics in these modern technology nodes is a resource and time-intensive endeavor that further requires valid ...

  4. Ultra-short Pulsed Off-axis Digital Holography for 3D imaging of Aerosol Evolution

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182003

    This is a proposal to develop a unique, Ultrashort Pulsed Off-axis Digital Holography (USPODH) system, enabling the high frequency imaging of detailed 3D structures within aerosol fields under harsh thermodynamic conditions and high optical depths where ordinary imaging is essentially useless.Many powerful imaging methods have failed to provide this capability because noise from multiple scatterin ...

  5. High-Intensity Compact EUV-X-ray Generators Base on Metastable Innershell Molecular State

    SBC: Y.K. Bae Corporation            Topic: DTRA122007

    The primary goal of the preceding Phase I program was to demonstrate the feasibility of developing commercially viable products from our technological innovation that enables unprecedentedly high energy efficiency generation of super-intense EUV-x-ray beams via Metastable Innershell Molecular State. We have successfully met the Phase I goal by demonstrating the feasibility, and are now ready for f ...

  6. Annular Gas Jet Anode for Decade

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA04010

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to replace the anode posts of a soft x-ray z-pinch with an azimuthally symmetric shell of high density, low atomic number gas. Once ionized, the gas column carries the current and eliminates particulate debris that is otherwise generated by the return rods. The gas shell also absorbs unwanted UV and hence eliminates the first Li foil filter of t ...

  7. A fast pulse, intermediate flux, bench-top, high rep-rate x-ray source for PRS diagnostic calibration

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: DTRA06013

    DTRA requires reliable X-ray sources to irradiate test objects for customers. One key component of test object irradiation is reliable radiation diagnostics to measure the dose and dose-rate to test objects. Current radiation diagnostics possess unacceptable levels of variation. Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes the use of a dense plasma focus device as a flat field X-ray calibration sourc ...

  8. Computer-Assisted Strain Construction And Development Engineering (CASCADE)

    SBC: GENOMATICA, INC.            Topic: CBD06107

    The recent advances of modern high-throughput genomic technologies have resulted in a large number of fully sequenced microbial organisms. The construction of these comprehensive metabolic models serves many purposes including encapsulating all the data and allowing for in silco experiments to be performed that can drive experimental work and aid in strain development and optimization. The creatio ...

  9. Handheld Instrument for Nerve Agent Detection

    SBC: KUMETRIX, INC.            Topic: CBD06104

    Rapid detection and identification of chemical warfare nerve agents (CWNAs) are critical to the screening and subsequent treatment of exposed warfighters. Inhibition of cholinesterase activity is insufficient as a marker of exposure to CWNAs, in that it can give misleading results and does not distinguish CWNAs from commonly employed pesticides. This proposal presents a revolutionary field-porta ...

  10. Advanced Radiation Detector

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA05014

    In response to a DTRA need, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) has developed a new, low-cost Advanced Radiation Detector (ARAD) and a process to produce it. ARAD is based on thallium-doped cesium iodide scintillator, sensitive to gamma and X-ray energies up to 1 MeV with 3% resolution, and fully compatible with existing mass production technologies. In Phase I POC successfully completed the ARAD ...
