  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. Design Automation Software for Biomimetic Surface Presentation with DNA Origami

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: CBD12103

    A development program is proposed for a design automation software package that enables the generation of complex surfaces, with user defined or automated definition of point charge and hydrophobic/hydrophilic properties, using DNA origami as a presentation substrate. Building upon Parabons existing software for DNA origami design, this project will result in software that can be used to design a ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Porphyrin-DNA Origami Constructs as Bioscavengers for Organophosphates

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: CBD14104

    The recent use of organophosphate (OP) nerve agents against combatants and civilians in Syria has validated the importance of developing new drugs and biologics that sequester and catalytically degrade organophosphate (OP) nerve agents in the body before they cause morbidity and mortality. We propose to develop a method for the sequestration of OP simulants via porphyrin-DNA constructs. Construc ...

  7. Development of Zeteo Toxic Agent Detection System (zTADS)

    SBC: Zeteo Tech LLC            Topic: CBD14101

    The development of the Zeteo Toxic Agent Detection System (zTADS) is presented here. The system features a multiplexed disposable sample collection and processing system that feeds a handheld biological mass spectrometer.

  8. Microhydrogel Depot for Sustained Delivery of Prophylactic Bioscavenger

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD13107

    Countering the threat of intoxication by organophosphorus nerve agents is an important mission for homeland security. Currently, the most promising strategy is to bioscavenge the agents using injectable plasma-derived butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) that has low substrate specificity and may offer a broad spectrum protection against OP agents. Human plasma-derived BuChE at 400mg IV dose is prophylac ...

  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. Spectroscopic Imaging Technology for THz Biosensor Integrated with a Lab-on-Chip Platform

    SBC: VIBRATESS            Topic: CBD07104

    In the Phase I CBD SBIR project, Vibratess proposed and confirmed a new imaging mechanism for subwavelength THz spectroscopy based on very strong enhancement of electromagnetic field of THz radiation at the edges of periodic semiconductor structure. The technology to fabricate an integrated miniature detector assembly (with a Schottky diode, a circuit and a nano-size antenna to probe radiation tr ...
