  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. Continuous Ionization System for Electrostatic Collection of Bioaerosols in Building Protection Applications

    SBC: MILOW LTD.            Topic: CBD12107

    A technology for continuous ionization of bio-aerosols and airborne particles to improve the effectiveness of its electrostatic collection was demonstrated in Phase I. We designed, fabricated and tested a 50 CFM device that uses direct induction charging...

  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. 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. 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 ...

  10. Raw Data Generation Tool for X-ray Security Imaging Systems

    SBC: Telesecurity Sciences, Inc.            Topic: HSB0141003

    The X-ray intensity as measured by detectors depends on all aspects of the imaging system ranging from the source spectrum to various scatter events during the photon transport. The proposed simulator models the entire X-ray detection process from photon generation to various scatter events to the eventual detection of transmitted/scattered photons. In particular, the simulator models the two impo ...
