  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. Mobile Application for Improved Sleep through Sleep Hygiene Training Feedback

    SBC: Awarables Inc.            Topic: DHP14003

    The focus of this project is a mobile health application that will support soldiers in improving their sleep quality and performance. The app will be based on standard user interface models to simplify learning and promote healthy sleep behaviors. This will be backed by powerful and effective algorithms that analyze physiologic and behavioral data to produce actionable feedback for the user. Among ...

  6. iGrab Hand Orthosis: Innovative Glove for Rehabilitation and Assistance using Biomimicry

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP14010

    Portable, lightweight, and easy to use assistive and rehabilitation orthotic devices (ARODs) are of critical importance to people affected by upper limb musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs) due to the limited supply of traditional rehabilitation resources. Since currently available ARODs for the hand are bulky, non-portable, and cumbersome to use, treatment methods for upper limb MSIs still rely heavi ...

  7. Biointegrated Synthetic Grafts for Reconstruction of Vascular Tissues

    SBC: HEALIONICS CORPORATION            Topic: DHP14009

    Current vascular repair and replacement grafts made from synthetic biomaterials, typically expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), have poor functionality for use with smaller vessels in the extremities. We propose using ?STAR? synthetic biomaterial, a well developed microporous tissue scaffold, already in human device use, to construct grafts that potentially overcome the issues with steno ...

  8. Military-Specific Tinnitus management and Aural Rehabilitation Therapy (M-START)

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: DHP14008

    Military personnel are often exposed to high-intensity noises of various types and as a result, some develop hearing loss, tinnitus, or both. To date, there is no standard treatment for tinnitus but sound-based therapies have proven to be promising. Hearing loss is most often treated with hearing aids but rarely is the treatment accompanied by aural rehabilitation therapy to facilitate effective ...

  9. Development of a Multiplex Bioassay for Early Predictors of Multiple Organ Injury

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DHP14005

    Bioassays employed to assess the diverse range of toxicity associated with organ injury are time-consuming, costly and require multiple instruments and testing formats (i.e. fluorescence-based capture, ELISAs, PCR, etc.) to reach a diagnosis. These platforms are incapable of predicting the onset of irreversible organ (e.g. kidney, liver, heart and lung) tissue injury. If a single multiplexed scree ...

  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.
