  1. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System For Stand Off Chemical Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13104

    We propose an Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter (AOTF) Spectropolarimetric Imaging System for Enhanced Standoff Chemical Detection at Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) wavelengths. This work entails development of suitable LWIR material, design of the LWIR AOTF, and design of the hyperspectral imaging sensor using a focal plane array. Currently, there is no technologically mature, commercially available mater ...

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

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost Long Wavelength Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (LWIR FPAs) using colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) of mercury telluride (HgTe). In Phase I, QDs in the size range of 20-25nm (corresponding to cutoff wavelength of 8 to 12 microns) w...

  3. Regenerable Carbon Dioxide Removal Technology Based on Novel Macroporous Ion Exchange Resins for Closed-Circuit Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD12106

    Currently, the United States Military encounters many scenarios where soldiers must enter hazardous areas, while maintaining isolation from contaminants such as chemical and biological agents as well as hazardous material exposure. This requires that the soldiers respiratory tract be isolated to prevent exposure to these contaminants. In order to accomplish this, the soldiers wear protective suits ...

  4. Regenerable, heat-Abating, humidity-Neutralizing, Carbon diOxide Removal System (RANCOR) Phase II

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: CBD12106

    In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the point where ice or other cooling systems will no longer be required. In Phase II Paragon will introduce ...

  5. In situ Production of Biocidal Reactive Oxygen Via Directed Energy

    SBC: Zeteo Tech LLC            Topic: HSB0142001

    The in situ production of biocidal reactive oxygen via directed energy work will develop a benign, environmentally safe decontamination solution. The effort will demonstrate the potential to produce biocidal reactive oxygen and thermal effects via exposure to radio frequency directed energy at two frequencies to kill bacterial (Bacillus thuringensis) and mold (Penicillium sp.) spores. Controlled ...

  6. Ultra-Small, Low-Cost Hazardous Gas and Particulate Matter Detector Using Novel Chip-Scale Chemical Sensor Technology

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: HSB0142006

    The proposed SBIR phase I project will demonstrate a ultra-small, low-power, low-cost solution for detection of toxic gases and particulate matter (PM) in air. Firefighters are exposed to various toxic gases and PM both during active knock-down and overhaul phases of fire operation. Four-gas toxic monitors, commonly used by firefighters, are ineffective due to limited information it can provide, ...

  7. Rapid Low-Cost Biological Warefare Decontamination

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: HSB0142001

    Lynntech, Inc. proposes the use of a novel oxidant as a powdered concentrate, that when dissolved in water, yields a potent sporicidal solution capable of reducing spores by greater than 6-logs on a variety of surfaces. The sporicidal formulation will be tested on concrete, wood, galvanized metal, glass, plastic and painted wallboard to determine if the formulation will reduce spores but not harm ...

  8. Bulk Currency Vapor detection in Confined Spaces

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: HSB0132001

    The proposed goal of Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc for the Phase II program is to adapt a commercially available gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer instrument for the problem of detecting U.S. currency via unique vapor signature in confined spaces and then field test three prototype units, operated by government personnel, during a 6-month field test. After this test, we will provide detailed docu ...

  9. Physical Unclonable Functions for Mobile Device Roots of Trust

    SBC: Def-Logix, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    Beginning with the release of the iPhone in 2007 and continuing with the increasing popularity of tablet computers, there has been an ever increasing desire to connect "unsecure" mobile devices to secure enterprise networks. Although several pieces of technology exist to meet this need, these devices lack a firm foundation upon which to build trust and security. This paper proposes development o ...

  10. Development of Zeteo Toxic Agent Detection System (zTADS)

    SBC: Zeteo Tech LLC            Topic: CBD14101

    The development of the Zeteo Toxic Agent Detection System (zTADS) is presented here. The system features a multiplexed disposable sample collection and processing system that feeds a handheld biological mass spectrometer.
