  2. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Science Inc. (PSI) will develop a new approach to chemical vapor detection based on a novel open-path sample cell design. The PhaseI system level model predicts SNR supporting a probability of detection of 95% and a MTBFA of 168 hours for all relevant CWAs and TICs at the10 minute negligible MEG level at a 20 s measurement time. In addition to robust detection, the system design can provi ...

  3. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Used for Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    Electro-optical infrared and long wavelength infrared detectors and sensors are increasingly important for the Chemical/Biological Defensecommunity. Solid-state optical cooler materials are in demand for replacing mechanical closed cycle coolers used in current LWIR standoffsensors to achieve cryogenic temperatures. Recent advances in optical cooling of rare-earth doped materials are pointing towa ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Durable Stretch Barrier Materials

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD181003

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) presents a serious security threat to U.S. and allied personnel around the world.Military personnel and first responders must be prepared to operate under a wide range of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN)threats. Commercially available CBRN protective suits are bulky offering little dexterity to the wearer, therefore new stre ...

  8. Biphase Extended Release Tablet Formulation for Nerve Agent Pretreatment

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: CBD181004

    Given the unforeseen/unanticipated use of nerve agents in the battlefield and on the homeland, military personnel can benefit from this oncedaily pretreatment. It may also be desirable to pretreat certain medical and emergency aid personnel following a known/suspected nerveagent attack. Also, a novel, improved PB extended release formulations can be commercialized for the treatment of myasthenia g ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Stable Formulation of Nerve Agent Intoxication Countermeasures

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD181005

    In response to the defined need for minimizing the carry weight of combat teams while retaining capability, Luna Innovations is proposing thedevelopment of a stable formulation of atropine and scopolamine for use in an autoinjector to combat nerve agent intoxication. Thecombined formulation of atropine and scopolamine will allow for better treatment with more physiological coverage within the huma ...
