  1. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  2. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  3. Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD10H03

    A principal approach in regenerative medicine is to stimulate or augment endogenous repair mechanisms that promote functional restoration of damaged or diseased tissues. When loss of significant volumes of multiple functionally integrated tissues occurs,

  4. Self-Regulating Anesthesia/Analgesia Device Using Automated Fresh Gas Flow to Deliver Inhaled Agents

    SBC: MEDICAL CONSERVATION DEVICES, LLC            Topic: OSD10H05

    The control of pain, anxiety, discomfort, and the sequellae of injury and illness is an over-arching healthcare issue in both military and civilian settings. Current strategies for pain relief, sedation and anesthesia involve infusion of intravenous agen

  5. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  6. Keratin Biomaterials for Cranio-facial Tissue Engineering

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD09H10

    The majority of personnel injured in OIF/OEF have suffered blast injuries from IEDs. Blasts often cause cranio-facial trauma that is difficult to repair surgically. The current standard of care involves the placement of fixation devices and off label use of growth factor carriers. These strategies often require multiple surgical interventions creating a significant need for better technologies ...

  7. Food Toxicity Detection Using C. elegans

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: OSD09H24

    Current toxicity testing of foodstuffs involves mass spectrometry analysis which requires a>24 h turnaround time in deployed military operations. This length of time is dangerous for personnel. Rapid identification of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) in food using a sensor that is biologically-based and easy to use eliminates that danger and would provide exactly what is needed for toxicity eva ...
