  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...

  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. 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 ...

  8. Clinical Online PTSD and TBI Analysis for Decision Support (COPTADS)

    SBC: SENTIMETRIX, INC.            Topic: DHP12005

    It is estimated that 20 percent of returning forces from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars are afflicted with PTSD or major depression. In the last year alone, over 400,000 military veterans have been diagnosed with PTSD. Among troops still in the military, experts estimate that one in five has experienced acute stress, anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues as a result of war-zone deploym ...

  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. A Universal Device for Performing Cricothyrotomies

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DHP13015

    Many emergency cricothyrotomy kits have been developed in an attempt to simplify this potentially life-saving medical procedure. However, none of the existing kits perform noticeably better than the standard surgical kit. The standard kit itself has led to a reported failure rate of 33% when performed in combat environments, and airway obstruction is reported to be the third most preventable cau ...
