  1. Polyvalent Aptamer Networks

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: AF071045

    Aptamers have been selected against a variety of important biodefense targets, including protein toxins such as ricin and pepocin and antigens from pathogenic bacteria such as Yersinia spp. and F. tularemia. To ensure that reagents can be created for any of a variety of chemical and biological agents, including new biological agents, selection methods need to be streamlined. The cost of chemical a ...

  2. Oligonucleotide Enzyme Surrogate (OnES)

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: CBD08108

    Historically organophosphorus compounds such as insecticides and nerve agents have been susceptible to decomposition by proteinaceous enzymes. Organophosphate hydrolases (OPH) represent a practical method to deactivate such compounds peripherally and on surfaces. However, when such organophosphates are ingested, the use of proteinaceous enzymes such as OPH can be problematic because of their tende ...

  3. Restoration of LG components by EPVD

    SBC: ADVANCED GLOBAL SERVICES, LTD            Topic: AF073115

    Aluminum-made LG outer cylinders easily become damaged developing nicks and scratches of 5 thousandths of an inch or deeper on the inner surface (ID). This leads to a premature condemnation. There is currently no repair technique to restore the LG outer cylinders to serviceable condition. The EPVD® technique is developed to apply fully dense, well-adhered non-hazardous coatings to internal surfac ...

  4. Rocket Propulsion Supporting Technology

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: OSD08PR2

    Refractory carbide materials posses the erosion resistance and high temperature strength required for the severe environments experienced by cutting tools, well bore equipment, and rocket nozzles. Refractory carbides (e.g. WC, TaC, and TiC) are usually formed by press and sinter techniques with an additional metallic binder or by forging with some binder. We propose fabricate ceramic metal matri ...

  5. Carbon Nanotube-Based Filters for Aerosol Sample Collection

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD07111

    Aerosols represent one of the more efficient methods to distribute biological and chemical agents throughout the atmosphere. Small aerosol droplets can be readily inhaled and easily penetrate deep into the lungs where they lodge in bronchial alveoli. Within the alveoli, chemical and biological agents can breach epithelial and endothelial cell layers and enter the bloodstream, where they cause da ...

  6. RFID sensor for Detection of Biowarfare Agents

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF07T016

    The use of Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) coupled to biological warfare agent (BWA) detection systems provides a means of strategically placing sensors in the field and then reading the threat at a distance. The challenges are in the integration of specific, sensitive detectors with RFID systems in a manner that allows miniaturization to the nanoscale, facilitating distribution with a mini ...

  7. Field Sensor for Measuring Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) Concentrations in Drinking Water

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF073139

    Rapid detection of the total trihalomethanes (TTHM) in treated drinking water is essential for compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Stage 2 Disinfectants and Disinfection Byproducts (DBP) Rule, which limits the maximum contaminant level of TTHM in drinking water to 80 parts per billion. The current detection method for TTHM determination involves sending samples to EPA ce ...

  8. Ribozymes for In Vivo Degradation of G-Nerve Agents

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08108

    Given the possibility to administer prophylactic doses of protein bioscavengers inactivating OP nerve agents before they reach their acetylcholinesterase target, much attention has been given to proteins such as human butyrylcholinesterase and paraoxonase I. As small nucleic acid catalysts can exhibit triphosphoesterase activities, the identification of new molecules active against nerve agents w ...

  9. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs. The overall operational weight of th ...

  10. Non-Linear Transmission Line Microwave Source

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: AF073005

    Applied Physical Electronics, L.C. (APELC) offers this proposal to provide the U.S. Air Force with a solution to their near term need for a tunable, high powered (10s MW) RF source operating with a center frequencies from 750 MHz to 1.5 GHz, which is conformal to U.S. deployment strategies.
