  2. Efficient Materials for Optical Cryocoolers

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: CBD171001

    This Phase-II SBIR proposal directly addresses the need to improve the size, weight and power, SWaP, of optical cryocoolers. In particular, theproposers will work toward increasing the efficiency of optical cryocoolers by incorporating cooling materials that require less input laserpower to achieve a given heat lift. The new cooling materials will be high-purity crystals doped with active rare-ear ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is a highly effective non-contact laser remote sensing method for detecting and identifying chemicals in every-day field environments. Raman spectroscopy is particularly suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents. Contemporary systems, such as the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface D ...

  6. Improved M8 Test Paper for Chemical Agent Detection

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD11103

    Detection of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) such as V, H, and G agents is currently performed using the easy-to-use, simple, and rapid M8 test papers to detect and differentiate among these agents. However, frequent replacement is usually required for these test papers in outdoor applications because of the degradation by exposure to sun, dust, and rain. Moreover, visual inspection is needed to as ...

  7. Development of an in vitro assay as correlate of passive immune protection against botulinum neurotoxin to minimize use of whole animal testing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    This Small Business Innovation Research project will develop a non-animal based in vitro assay for determining the efficacy of Botulinum (BoNT) neutralizing therapeutics. New technologies are currently needed in order to facilitate the development and approval of BoNT vaccines and therapies and reduce the number of vertebrate animals used in medical testing. In Phase 1 of this project, the feasibi ...
