  1. Self-Healing Shape Memory Polymer Based Coatings for Protective Garments (1001-966)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD13110

    In this Phase II program we will build on the promising Phase I results and further develop, optimize and integrate self-healing coatings/membranes into Chemical/Biological (CB) protective clothing to enable autonomous and rapid self-healing of cuts/tears/punctures and provide continuous protection to the warfighters. Current CB garment systems use a layer of absorptive carbon or selectively perm ...

  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. Sensitive and Selective Chemical Sensor Using Molecularly-Imprinted Single Layer Graphene

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD14102

    The overall goal of the SBIR Phase II program is development, fabrication, and demonstration of a fully integrated graphene-based sensor capable of detection of different types of chemical agents in the vapor phase with better than parts per billion (ppb) sensitivity and a high degree of specificity. It should also exhibit a reversible function of the sensing element. The program will synergistica ...

  4. 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...

  5. Enhancing the Pharmacokinetic Profile of Protein-based Drugs

    SBC: Extend Biosciences Inc.            Topic: CBD12101

    Many protein-based drugs have limited efficacy due to a short half-life or require intravenous delivery because of low bioavailability. Extend Biosciences is developing proprietary carrier molecules that allow proteins to access an intrinsic transport pathway for efficient delivery to the vascular space and then maintain a sustained presence in circulation. This novel technology would be of partic ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A uMECS miniature blower for respiratory protection systems

    SBC: Vibrant Composites Inc.            Topic: CBD14103

    Air management solutions capable of reducing heat and moisture burden are not suitable for integration in wearable respiratory protection systems due to excessive weight, volume, and power requirements of existing technologies. Vibrant Composites proposes applying its unique uMECS manufacturing technology towards development of an ultra-lightweight and power efficient miniature blower. Fundament ...

  10. Sensitive and Selective Chemical Sensor Using Molecularly-Imprinted Single Layer Graphene

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD14102

    Polestar Technologies Inc. proposes a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project to develop a chemical sensor for detection of chemical-warfare agents. The designed sensor combines selectivity of Molecularly-Imprinted Polymer (MIP) with sensitivity of single-layer graphene sheet. Detection will be based on radio frequency (RF) based impedance. The proposed sensor will be robust, highly dep ...
