  1. Rapid biodosimetry for accurate assessment of individual radiation exposure levels

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: CBD13108

    In the event of a catastrophic radiation disaster, first responders, both civilian and military, must be able to quickly and accurately measure the radiation dose received by victims in order to screen, perform triage and effectively assign available resources. First-responders must also be able to accurately evaluate their own exposure to radiation in order to make return-to-duty decisions in rea ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Advanced Real-Time Surface Contamination Sensor

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: CBD13103

    An advanced sensor for proximal detection of contaminants on surfaces is proposed based on hyperspectral differential polarization reflection of LWIR radiation from an active IR source, blackbody lamp or wavelength agile laser and an advanced unmixing algorithm whose feasibility was demonstrated by field test data in the Phase I program. The high signal-to-noise ratios provided by the active irrad ...

  5. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is well suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents, illicit drugs, or specific combinations of indicator chemicals used in processing nuclear materials. An example mobile Raman spectroscopy system is the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface Detector (JCSD), which uses a gaseous KrF exc ...

  6. Global Spatiotemporal Disease Surveillance System

    SBC: Cellmic, LLC            Topic: CBD13102

    Rapid screening of chemical/biological threats and infectious diseases is a challenging task especially in remote locations due to the lack of appropriate laboratory infrastructure and advanced instrumentation. In such resource-scarce settings, wireless, robust, accurate, and easy-to-use diagnostics tools are required to enable real-time monitoring of various medical conditions, point-of-care appl ...

  8. 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 ...
