  1. Microfiber-Based Closures with Hermetic Sealing for Chem Bio Protective Garments

    SBC: nanoGriptech, Inc.            Topic: CBD13109

    Hook and loop closures in Army uniforms have been identified as the critical sources of leaks in protective clothing/equipment, which limits the overall protective capability of the ensemble. We demonstrated during Phase I of this project that we can design and fabricate hybrid closure systems which incorporate areas of microfiber adhesive arrays inspired by the foot-hairs found on geckos which ha ...

  2. Development of a long-acting, injectable controlled release butyrylcholinesterase formulation using predictive modeling.

    SBC: Qrono, Inc.            Topic: CBD13107

    Elevated levels of human butyrylcholinesterase (hBuChE) confer protection from chemical warfare nerve agents and other organophosphorous chemicals. As a prophylactic, the key to enabling this protection is the ability to maintain elevated concentrations of hBuChE in the plasma for days or weeks. Thus far, plasma-derived hBuChE and PEGylated recombinant forms of BuChE (rBuChE) have been tested in ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Non-Invasive, Head-Mounted Measure of Vestibular Function

    SBC: NEURO KINETICS, INC.            Topic: DHP14007

    Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a common result of military engagements and training. One of the most difficult issues in treating mTBI is diagnosing the presence of mTBI and evaluating its severity. Studies have shown that balance disorders are a common symptom of mTBI and can occur in up to 95% of individuals. Existing types of balance testing are not adequate to assess a vestibular disor ...

  5. Conformal Onboard Light-weight Durable Passive Low-cost Aquatic Thermal Emission System (COLDPLATES)

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: SOCOM14005

    Paragon Space Development Corporation will provide SOCOM with a low-cost, conformal, closed-loop cooling system that is highly resistant to damage and provides superior cooling performance to existing raw water cooling alternatives. This proposed innovation is simple to manufacture, retrofit, and in its final form, is anticipated to entail little to no mass increase over the current system. The c ...

  6. Detection of Permethrin in Military Uniforms via Microwave NDE

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N142084

    Permethrin content in the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform (MCCUU) decreases during active field duty, potentially exposing Marines to disease-carrying insects. Chemical based tests are currently impossible to perform in-situ under field condition, requiring consumables, bulky equipment, and a long test time. Under this effort, Nokomis will develop a handheld permethrin detection device that us ...
