  1. Dermal Medical Countermeasures for Chemical Weapons Exposure

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: CBD161003

    The skin is the first line of defense against chemical warfare agents including nerve agents and toxic industrial chemicals, providing a possible barrier or delay to systemic distribution. Some chemicals also can act directly on the skin including the vesicants sulfur mustard and lewisite. Early and rapid skin decontamination is extremely important following exposure to CWAs and TICs because it de ...

  2. Signal Processing for Layered Sensing

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: CBD152006

    Vadum will develop Chemical, Heterogeneous sensor fusion Incident awareness Module (CHIME)asoftware module that will ingest data from a large number of asynchronous, heterogeneous and multi-tiered sensors to automate the process of estimating the source attributes of a chemical or biological release. CHIME generates estimates from a continuous stream of raw sensor data with successive estimates al ...

  3. Producing Novel Biosynthetic Therapeutics from Extreme Microbiomes

    SBC: IXPRESSGENES, INC.            Topic: CBD152004

    This project is a unique metagenomic evaluation of under-studied extremophilic microbiome natural products (NPs), with the goal of discovering novel antibiotic biowarfare agent (BWA) countermeasures. A metagenomic biosynthetic gene cluster library from extremophilic sources was created, sequenced, analyzed, and exploited to produce several broad-spectrum antibiotic extracts during the Phase I effo ...

  4. Smartphone Application for Mask Sizing and Projecting Quantitative Fit

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD161005

    Typical procedures for respirator masks sizing and protective fit test are time-consuming and user intensive, requiring taking anthropometricmeasurements of the wearer, sampling the wearers breathing zone and the use of specialized tools and equipment. The proposed softwareapp aims to quickly, accurately and automatically perform respirator mask sizing and predict protective fit using only 2D imag ...

  5. Exploiting Natural Products-Based Therapeutics for Aflatoxin Mitigation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD152003

    Aflatoxins B1 (AFB1) are fungal produced mycotoxins that are present in food supplies and are strongly associated with increased risk for thedevelopment of hepatocellular carcinoma. Currently, there are no known countermeasures to selectively mitigate AFB1 toxicity. To meet thischallenge, we successfully validated a Phase I proof-of-concept study to harness the microbiome extracts of scavenging ma ...

  6. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  8. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  9. Critical Data Processing for Chemical Warfare Simulant Field Testing- Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD05110

    To properly measure (and understand) the performance of a standoff detector, properties of the challenge cloud must be known. Meteorological models, such as HPAC and VLSTRACK, have proven to be reasonably good tools for predicting cloud properties. However, a problem with these tools is that they deliver ensemble averages and may not describe a specific cloud to the detail required. The Dugway ...
