  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, 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. 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 ...

  6. Low-power, Small Form-factor Benzene Sensor for Mobile Devices-based Exposure Monitoring

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: D

    Measuring individual exposure in real-time can revolutionize air quality monitoring in communities everywhere. Such information would allow citizens to take preventive measures to reduce their exposures to air toxics, which would impact their health and quality of life tremendously. Mobile devices such as smart-phones and tablets represent a powerful infrastructure that could be leveraged to devel ...

  7. Green Materials for Doubling the Life of Drinking Water Pipeline

    SBC: HJ3 Composite Technologies, LLC            Topic: B

    Of the18,000 miles of pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) within the drinking water transmission infrastructure laid between 1945 and 1996 in the United States, almost one-half, or 8,600 miles of pipe, is considered to be end-of-life infrastructure, awaiting funding for replacement. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) gave the United States a grade of D for its drinking water inf ...

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

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

    We propose to build a compact laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor for continuous, real-time broadband analysis of multiple chemical components, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic monitoring of chemical warfare agents (CWA). Our sensor will be based on our laboratory LPAS instrument (at technology readiness level TRL-4) that has already demonstrated successful multicompon ...

  9. A New Innovative Low Cost Manufacturing Process to Produce Titanium

    SBC: Environmental Abrasives, LLC            Topic: 07NCERA1

    All titanium is produced by the Kroll process, which is a batch process for the magnesium (Mg) reduction of titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4). Separate operations are required to produce the toxic and very corrosive TiCl4, which must be stored and transported. Magnesium also is produced separately in liquid form via the electrolysis of magnesium chloride (MgCl2), which requires storage and transport ...

  10. 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
