  2. Development of a Point-of-care Assay for the Detection of Rift Valley Fever Virus, a Militarily Important Pathogen of the CENTCOM and AFRICOM Area of

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A08180

    The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field grade, screening assay for the detection of RVFV in human blood and sera. The test will utilize a lateral flow (dipstick) chromatography incorporated into a cassette. The proposed immunochromatographic assay would be a very useful screening test to assess RVFV. This would facilitate the treatment of military personnel presenting with febri ...

  4. Development of a Point-of-care Assay for the Detection of Sand Fly Fever Virus (SFFV), a Militarily Important Pathogen of the CENTCOM, EUCOM and AFRIC

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A08182

    Sand fly fever is actually caused by a group of several viruses often termed Sand fly ever viruses (SFFV) and are typically caused by Toscana, Naples and Sicilian viruses. The Toscana virus is confined to Italy and the Mediterranean basin whereas the Naples and Sicilian viruses are more prevalent and often found together in the Middle East through Pakistan and Afghanistan. More recently Sicilian v ...

  7. Semiconductor Laser Packaging for Infrared Flares

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: A09004

    Flares are routinely used for battlefield illumination or for identification of hazards and landing strips. Visible light flares are simple in concept and execution, but have the disadvantage of being easily visible by anyone within visual range. Infrared flares enable the covert use of illumination, utilizing the advantage of modern Night Vision Goggles and can help enable today''''s war fighter ...

  8. Cryogenically-cooled eyesafe laser diode arrays for resonant pumping of Er-doped gain media

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: A08061

    High-power solid state lasers operating beyond 1300-nm have been proposed as “eye-safer” sources in many applications. Erbium-doped solid state lasers provide an attractive gain medium due to emission at eyesafe wavelengths, and the potential for ultra-low quantum defect pumping by diode lasers operating around 1532-nm. It has been shown that cooling the solid state crystalline gain medium t ...

  9. Eye-safe fiber-coupled laser pumps for high power

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: A09047

    Erbium-doped solid state and fiber lasers provide an attractive source at eyesafe wavelengths, and the potential for ultra-low quantum defect pumping by diode lasers operating around 1532-nm. Unfortunately, these systems, to date, have been limited by the spatial brightness of the diode pumps. Under the proposed Phase 1 program, nLight will design, fabricate, test, and deliver to the Army (or a ...

  10. Light Cavitation Peening of Carburized Gears

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: A09014

    Cavitation peening (CP) is a novel method of inducing residual compressive stresses in components to enhance fatigue life and improve damage tolerance. The process involves sweeping ultra high-pressure waterjets over the surface to be peened so that cavitation bubbles form and collapse on the workpiece. The intensity of the peening is controlled by varying the speed at which the jet traverses the ...
