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

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD171001

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as IR and LWIR detectors and sensors. In our approach, the cooling fibersegment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NPPhotonics' high efficiency fiber lasers are used to pump high purity doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action ...

  2. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Arrays For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost extended range Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) using Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) technology. We have successfully produced a SWIR FPA camera with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a sensitivity from 0.4 mm to 1.7 mm at room temperature. Our first initiative will be to extend the operational wavelength range to 2.5 mm, and then 3.0 mm. We hav ...

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

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an open-path spatial ringdown spectrometer (OP-SRS) for the detection and quantification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This approach enables sensitive and selective detection of the chemicals of interest over a broad dynamic range down to the 10 minute negligible military exposure guideline (MEG) level. Thi ...

  4. Self-Detoxifying Textiles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD161001

    Luna Innovations is addressing the need to develop novel fluid repellent textile treatments for military uniforms that will activelydecontaminate chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA). There have been recent significant advances in textile treatments that havedemonstrated water, oil and chemical agent resistance that are superior to Quarpel repellent treatments currently used on protective ...

  5. Easy Dry Spray for Dermal Decontamination of CWAs

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD161003

    The potential danger of chemical-warfare attacks has led to an increased need for developing novel decontamination methods. The sensitivity of human skin to different chemical warfare agents (CWAs) varies considerably. As a result, the decontamination for human requires an entirely different approach from other material decontamination, especially for the wound area on the skin where could absorb ...

  6. Carbon Based Nano-Additives for Chemically and Biologically Protective Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: CBD03304

    The development of carbon-based nano-additive bound polymers with enhanced adsorption capacity and reactivity for the neutralization of chemical and biological warfare agents could cause substantial saving of life during CBWA threats. In the Phase I pr

  7. Reversible Molecular Closure System for Shelters and Clothing

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD04110

    Luna will develop a hermetic closure system for use on combat uniforms and shelters that require protection from chemical and biological (CB) warfare agents. Despite great advances in high barrier fabrics, selectively permeable membranes, and unique chemical absorbent technologies, closures for clothing and shelters still possess the greatest risk for chemical or biological breach. Instead of mo ...
