  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A High Level Synthesis Tool for FPGA Design from Software Binaries

    SBC: BINACHIP, INC.            Topic: SB062006

    Many DOD systems require advanced digital signal processing and image processing functions that cannot be efficiently implemented on conventional micro-processors, hence designers have started mapping these applications onto FPGAs. However, most FPGA implementations are manually designed and highly coupled to the hardware, often taking advantage of special hardware features of the target FPGA. T ...

  6. Multiple Indication Adjuvants

    SBC: BIOPROTECTION SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: CBD08105

    The objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy and broad applicability of the human immune-modulating alphaGal Adjuvant Technology for antiviral vaccine development. We will use viral vaccine candidates for the select Category A viral pathogens Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV, filovirus), Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV, bunyavirus), and Lassa virus (LV, arenavirus), to evaluate the adjuvant pot ...

  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. Nanoelectrokinetic, Label-free Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemical Detection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB072001

    We propose to develop a novel nanofluidic, label-free sensor to detect the presence of ultra-low levels of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) in aqueous environmental samples. The envisioned handheld sensor will be hand-portable, be ruggedly constructed, support remote operation and be UAV-mountable. Our sensor exploits novel features of AC electrokinetics, made possible only when the channel dimen ...

  9. Design of Negative Index Metamaterials for the Visible Spectrum

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072035

    Optical imaging systems are used extensively in everyday life for military and civilian applications. Just like any other technology there is always a push to improve the performance over what is the current state of the art. Unfortunately, all optical systems are constrained by the fundamental limit of diffraction. This constraint limits the resolution of a system to approximately half of the ...

  10. Optically Reflecting Flexible Membrane

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072036

    Military imaging optics, such as rifle scopes, spotter scopes, and optics found on unmanned vehicles could be substantially better if the mechanical movement of optics for focus and zoom could be eliminated, without creating new problems associated with the rugged and harsh environment. The technology of liquid lenses has surfaced as a possible solution, but these lenses have problems with enviro ...
