  1. Microorganism Imprinted Polymers (MOIPs) for Detection of Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radiation Monitoring Device, Inc. (RMD) will develop microorganism imprinted polymers (MOIPs) that purify, concentrate, and identify bacterial and viral wargare agents. In Phase I we will develop polymer formulations and fluorescent labeling strategiesfor MOIPs targeted towards E. coli and B. globigii vegetative cells. We will aslo demonstrate the feasibility of detecting biowarfare agents. In P ...

  5. Innovative Optical Illumination Schemes for Surface Chemical Threat Detection

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller proposes to develop a portable system for rapid and effective standoff detection of chemical agents on surfaces. Ongoing laser interrogation efforts have demonstrated the ability to detect chemical agents on the ground, but these systems arenot readily adaptable to man-portable operation and suffer from a number of operational issues related to the use of a laser as the source of ex ...

  7. AOTF Based Imaging Sensor for Enhanced Stand-off Chemical Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) outlines the development of an acoustic-optic tunable filter (AOTF) for imaging spectroscopy in the 8 to 11 micron thermal infrared spectral region. In this region, where strong emission from field stops andvignetting can significantly increase the background radiance, a careful design of the system is needed in order to maintain good spectral and s ...
