  1. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot LWIR FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: CBD13105

    The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wave infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) in order to significantly reduce the cost of LWIR hyperspectral imagers. In order to realize this goal, it will first be necessary to successfully fabricate and demonstrate the performance of novel LWIR HgTe CQD detector arrays. This will be accomplished thro ...

  2. A Novel, Aerodynamics-augmented Continuous Ionization System for Electrostatic Collection of Bioaerosols

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12107

    Safe and efficient air ionization and filtration technology compatible to biodefense applications is of paramount importance. Current ionization methods are energy-intensive, costly, prone to ozone generation, or inefficient, and consequently ill-suited for building protection applications. To overcome these issues, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel bioaerosol ionization and collection ...

  3. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  4. An automated, high throughput, resin-free device for large scale protein purification

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD12102

    Protein manufacturing is of paramount importance to chemical and biological defense applications. High-throughput protein purification is a critical need for rapidly scaling the target protein product. Existing purification methods primarly rely on synthetic-resin based chromatography, which is time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and consequently, ill-suited for developing rapid countermea ...

  5. Anatomic 3D Synthetic Tissue Printer for Medical Training

    SBC: SERAPH ROBOTICS, INC.            Topic: DHP12003

    Military medical personnel are not prepared to provide trauma care to severely injured soldiers in wartime due to inadequate and unrealistic battlefield training opportunities during peacetime. Training has historically been done on human cadavers and live animals, but cadavers are in limited supply, and animal rights groups and physicians are increasing pressure to end the practice of using live ...

  6. Detection of Liquid Contaminants on Surfaces Using Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: CBD12104

    Quick detection of Chemical/Biological (CB) agents in the field can provide critical reconnaissance and contamination avoidance. CB agents pose a serious threat to both civilian and military sectors, and present techniques rely on dangerous collection methods, active measurement through external infrared (IR) sources, and/or are time-consuming. EPIR proposes to provide critically needed improvemen ...

  7. Development of a Database Management System to Enable Rapid, Efficient Assay Design for Use in Detection and Diagnosis of Human Exposure to Biological

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD07114

    The primary objective of this effort is to design and develop a database management system (DBMS) and enable the integrated interpretation of the vast amounts of genomic and proteomic data in proper biological context. This DBMS will enable the development of diagnostic assays for human exposure to specific biological threat agents using an existing suite of systems biology tools. The DBMS design ...

  8. Development of a Database Management System to Enable Rapid, Efficient Assay Design for Use in Detection and Diagnosis of Human Exposure to Biological

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD07114

    Increases in amount and diversity of high-throughput data presents tremendous organizational and analysis challenges to researchers. Our objective in this effort is to address these challenges by designing and implementing a database management system (cipherDB) for the storage, management, analysis, and visualization of diverse biological data types. The Phase I design and implementation of ciphe ...

  9. Digital SQUID Array for Portable Low-Field MRI System for Combat Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H18

    Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signals in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring very long averaging times to obtain reasonable spatial resolution. Under the Phase I project, we ...

  10. Imidazenil: A Protective Agent Against Chemical Warfare Agents induced Status Epilepticus

    SBC: NEUPHARMA, INC.            Topic: CBD05116

    The overall objective of this Phase II proposal is to determine the advantages of imidazenil over diazepam or midazolam as a potential anticonvulsant agent for the prophylaxis and for the emergency treatment of organophosphate nerve agent exposure. Therefore, we will compare the dose-dependent efficacy and anticonvulsant tolerance liability of imidazenil or midazolam for protecting rats against di ...
