  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 ...

  6. High-affinity monoclonal antibodies that target Burkholderia Polysaccharide

    SBC: DxDiscovery Incorporated            Topic: CBD14105

    Melioidosis and glanders are life-threatening illnesses caused by the bacteria Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei, respectively. These gram-negative bacilli are endemic to Northern Australia and Southeast Asia, however endemic regions are expanding as surveillance improves. B. pseudomallei and B. mallei are classified as Tier 1 select agents for potential use in bioterrorism, largel ...

  7. Burkholderia antibody molecules for therapeutics and diagnostics

    SBC: BIOO SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: CBD14105

    Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei are highly pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria and the causative agents of melioidosis and glanders, respectively. These infections, which occur in humans and other animals, are endemic is wide regions of the developing world. Translational research regarding these pathogens is focused on developing new strategies to detect, treat and ideally protect ...

  8. Oligonucleotide Enzyme Surrogate (OnES)

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: CBD08108

    Nerve agents (NA) such as sarin, soman, tabun or VX are organophosphate compounds similar to those used as pesticides but with much higher toxicity that can cause death within minutes. Use of NA weapons of mass destruction has become a real threat since the Iraq–Iran war in the 1980s and the sarin attacks against civilians in Japan in 1994 and 1995. Nerve agents are relatively simple and inexpen ...

  9. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: CBD08104

    We propose to build in Phase II a compact, rugged laser photoacoustic spectrometric (L-PAS) prototype sensor system (at technology readiness level TRL-6) for continuous, real-time broadband analysis of multiple chemicals. It will incorporate a tunable infrared quantum cascade laser (QCL), photoacoustic cell and air sampler system in a sealed decontamination-capable module and an efficient algorith ...

  10. Integrated Pre-concentrator Membrane Inlet for Mass Spectrometer

    SBC: SPACEHAB GOVERNMENT SERVICES, INC.            Topic: CBD09106

    The project proposed here will develop a polymer based pre-concentrator integrated with a novel membrane inlet for a mass spectrometer. By using an integrated solution, the dead volume of the pre-concentrator can be minimized, thus increasing the pre-concentration gain (projected to be > 17000 with gas flows of 1 l/min containing analyte to 40 pg/l) well beyond that of solid sorbent tubes. Also, t ...
