  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 ...

  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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: SCIENCE & ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: CBD08104

    We propose to build a compact laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor for continuous, real-time broadband analysis of multiple chemical components, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic monitoring of chemical warfare agents (CWA). Our sensor will be based on our laboratory LPAS instrument (at technology readiness level TRL-4) that has already demonstrated successful multicompon ...

  10. A Novel Approach for Spectral Unmixing and Classification of Chemical and Biological Agents

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Besides performing a thorough statistical analysis of the government furnished data sets to determine the features and metrics for spectral unmixing, Intelligent Automation, Inc. and Prof. C. Chang of University of Maryland at Baltimore County also proposean innovative approach to detect and classify chemical and biological agents. There are two major steps. First, we propose to apply a recently d ...
