  3. Low Dark Current, Extended Wavelength SWIR Sensors Using Hydrogenated Unipolar Barrier InGaAs


    In this Phase II program, improved performance SWIR sensors with extended wavelength response to 2.5 microns will be developed using two disruptive technologies, which Amethyst has successfully demonstrated in the Phase I program: unipolar barrier (e.g., nBn) detector structures, and defect passivation via hydrogenation. This two-pronged approach addresses the main performance limitation of extend ...

  5. Regenerable Carbon Dioxide Removal Technology Based on Novel Macroporous Ion Exchange Resins for Closed-Circuit Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD12106

    Currently, the United States Military encounters many scenarios where soldiers must enter hazardous areas, while maintaining isolation from contaminants such as chemical and biological agents as well as hazardous material exposure. This requires that the soldiers respiratory tract be isolated to prevent exposure to these contaminants. In order to accomplish this, the soldiers wear protective suits ...

  6. iGrab Hand Orthosis: Innovative Glove for Rehabilitation and Assistance using Biomimicry

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DHP14010

    Portable, lightweight, and easy to use assistive and rehabilitation orthotic devices (ARODs) are of critical importance to people affected by upper limb musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs) due to the limited supply of traditional rehabilitation resources. Since currently available ARODs for the hand are bulky, non-portable, and cumbersome to use, treatment methods for upper limb MSIs still rely heavi ...

  10. Portable, Hybrid Electrochemical Oxygen Generation and Compression System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N142087

    Pure oxygen is required in many medical applications including ventilation, anesthesia and refilling oxygen bottles. Forward Resuscitative Surgical System (FRSS) requires medical grade oxygen on demand in expeditionary environments. Although compressed oxygen bottles can provide this medical grade oxygen, the logistics associated with the constant supply of filled bottles makes it un-sustainable a ...
