  1. Self-Decontaminating Textiles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD161001

    Luna Innovations is addressing the need to develop novel fluid repellent textile treatments for military uniforms that will repel and actively decontaminate chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA). There have been recent significant advances in textile treatments that have demonstrated water, oil and chemical agent resistance that are superior to Quarpel repellent treatments currently used o ...

  2. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System for Stand-off Chemical Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13104

    Our goal in this SBIR project is to develop a lightweight, low-power, inexpensive hyperspectral spectro-polarimetric imaging sensor for wide area standoff detection of chemical agents. The imaging system will employ an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) that operates in the LWIR wavelength range. The sensor will have polarimetric imaging capabilities which, adds a valuable signature feature to im ...

  3. In Situ Production of Biocidal Reactive Oxygen via Directed Energy

    SBC: Zeteo Tech, Inc.            Topic: NonDOD

    This effort will expand the universe of direct energy enhancers across a wider spectrum of RF parameters to produce optimal decontamination at even lower cost. During the course of the Phase II investigation proposed here, initial work will be carried out on the determination of the fundamental mechanism of decontamination of biological materials with an eye toward expanding applicability to chemi ...

  4. High stretch, environmentally robust hybridsil, perfluoroelastomer barrier composits for CBRN protective ensembles

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: CBD181003

    Electro-optical infrared and long wavelength infrared detectors and sensors are increasingly important for the Chemical/Biological Defense community. Solid-state optical cooler materials are in demand for replacing mechanical closed cycle coolers used in current LWIR standoff sensors to achieve cryogenic temperatures. Recent advances in optical cooling of rare-earth doped materials are pointing to ...

  5. Durable Stretch Barrier Materials

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD181003

    The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) presents a serious security threat to U.S. and allied personnel around the world. Military personnel and first responders must be prepared to operate under a wide range of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) threats. Commercially available CBRN protective suits are bulky offering little dexterity to the wearer, therefore new st ...

  7. Stable Formulation of Nerve Agent Intoxication Countermeasures

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD181005

    In response to the defined need for minimizing the carry weight of combat teams while retaining capability, Luna Innovations is proposing the development of a stable formulation of atropine and scopolamine for use in an autoinjector to combat nerve agent intoxication. The combined formulation of atropine and scopolamine will allow for better treatment with more physiological coverage within the hu ...

  8. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Usedfor Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD171001

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as IR and LWIR detectors and sensors. In our approach, the cooling fibersegment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NPPhotonics' high efficiency fiber lasers are used to pump high purity doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action ...

  9. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Arrays For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost extended range Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) using Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) technology. We have successfully produced a SWIR FPA camera with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a sensitivity from 0.4 mm to 1.7 mm at room temperature. Our first initiative will be to extend the operational wavelength range to 2.5 mm, and then 3.0 mm. We hav ...

  10. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an open-path spatial ringdown spectrometer (OP-SRS) for the detection and quantification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This approach enables sensitive and selective detection of the chemicals of interest over a broad dynamic range down to the 10 minute negligible military exposure guideline (MEG) level. Thi ...
