  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. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: CBD11102

    Hyperspectral imaging systems acquire the spatial and spectral information of the image scene simultaneously, and thus find important applications in remote sensing, military surveillance, and target identification. Most contemporary hyperspectral imaging systems operate at UV/VIS/NIR (ultra violet/visible/near infrared) spectrums. However, in many cases, especially in military applications, (hype ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: Janya Inc.            Topic: SB102002

    Timely gathering and sharing of intelligence information is vital to the efficient execution of military missions. Much of the information collected in the field is impossible to exploit quickly because it is in hardcopy form, and handwritten. A mobile application that is capable of capturing handwritten documents and quickly converting the document image to electronic text will fill a critical ne ...

  5. Lab-on-a-Bubble: A powerful, low-cost, point-of-care diagnostic platform technology

    SBC: IFYBER, LLC            Topic: SB111001

    iFyber LLC proposal define a novel solution for the Point-of-Care diagnostics market. Traditional In-Vitro Diagnostic testing most often requires multiple steps (sample purification and analyte separation, analyte concentration/amplification, and detection) to achieve even qualitative levels of detection. iFyber proposes to develop and commercialize an entirely new paradigm in the POC diagnostic ...

  6. "Point of Injury"Sampling Technology for Battlefield Molecular Diagnostics

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: SB111001

    In this project Optofluidics, Inc. proposes to develop a"CLIA waivable"sample collection method for the concentration and quantification of blood-borne biomarkers associated with late phase hemorrhagic shock and traumatic brain injury. The sample collection technology is based on (1) a finger prick based assay, (2) a multistage packed bead filtration system, and (3) a novel"nanofluidic collapse" ...

  7. Anomaly Detection At Multiple Scales (ADAMS)

    SBC: Allure Security Technology            Topic: SB111003

    The recent disclosure of sensitive and classified government documents through WikiLeaks demonstrates a new systemic threat, exfiltration and broad global broadcast of government confidential data and information. We propose to develop techniques and mechanisms for identifying likely malicious insiders within an organization by leveraging automatically generated misinformation and modern system an ...

  8. A Neural Signal Processing System for Informing Cognitive Models of Human Social Cultural Behavior

    SBC: Neuromatters LLC            Topic: OSD10HS3

    In this project we will develop a framework for and demonstrate the feasibility of a neural signal processing system for informing cognitive models. Specifically, we will use single-trial analysis of EEG to inform a cognitive model of socio-cultural behavior. Our framework will include 1) a methodology for mapping characteristics of neural signals to cortical processes and cognitive modules, 2) a ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Photonic Band Gap Structures for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: SB092002

    The objective of proposed Phase II project is to develop multi-junction Graetzel cells using a cost effective, single layer metamaterial light harvesting template into which, up to four different sets of wavelength-selective ruthenium dye complexes are deposited. The light harvesting template performs three roles: (1) spectral band splitting of the incident solar spectrum into different cavities ...
