  1. Spores Viability Detection System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD11101

    There is an urgent need for a rapid biological detection system that demonstrates the efficacy of decontamination products for inactivating Bacillus anthracis spores on environmental surfaces. To address the U.S. Army/CBD need for such a fieldable, rapid, NIST-certified, quantitative bio-indicator system, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Spores Viability Detection (SVD) ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Improved M8 Test Paper for Chemical Agent Detection

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD11103

    Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) proposes to develop a field-rugged, colorimetric indicating test paper that is capable of detecting multiple chemical warfare agents (CWAs), at low concentrations, in adverse environments. The proposed sensor array will detect threatening chemical agents and provide a visual readout after coming in contact with the agent, or agents. This array will overcome the st ...

  5. Advanced Transmitter for Chem-Bio Standoff Detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: CBD11106

    Program tasks include analysis to improve wavelength diversity, high PRF discharges and catalysis in normal and isotopic pulsed CO2 laser mixtures, and high energy extraction in a single mode resonator. Analysis will be performed for pulse energy scaleup to the 1-5 J level at high PRF in support of the cloud search, track, and map functions. The impact of improved laser operation and enhanced da ...

  6. Development of an in vitro assay as correlate of passive immune protection against botulinum neurotoxin to minimize use of whole animal testing

    SBC: ELECTRONIC BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a non-animal based in-vitro assay for determining the efficacy of Botulinum (BoNT) neutralizing therapeutics; the dual nanopore assay (DNPA). New technologies are currently needed in order to facilitate the development and approval of BoNT vaccines and therapies, and align with the NIH and FDA"s guidance for reducing/replacing th ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Multifunctional Antisense Therapeutics Nanocarrier and Inhalation Device

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD10102

    To address the CBD need for improved formulations to enhance the ease of use and bioavailability of antisense therapeutics, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance development of a Multifunctional Antisense Therapeutics Nanocarrier and Inhalation Device (MATEN). This proposed system is based on a new dry powder formulation and a novel design of an inhaler that uses mature components ...

  9. 3D Microfluidic Platform for in vitro Hematopoietic Stem Cell (HSC) Culture

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD10103

    Poor drug candidates are often identified late in the drug development process (e.g., in the preclinical and clinical phases) and contribute significantly to the high cost and low yield of drug discovery. As a result, new tools are needed to accelerate the assessment of drug candidate toxicity earlier in the drug development process. To address this Chemical/Bio Defense (CBD) need, Physical Optics ...

  10. Next Generation Integrated Electrophoretic Nanofluidic Biochip Sensor Platform for the THz Spectroscopic Finger Printing of Biological Species and Age

    SBC: Redondo Optics, Inc.            Topic: CBD10110

    Redondo Optics Inc. (ROI), proposes to develop and demonstrate a next generation integrated electrophoretic nanofluidic biochip (INTRay-Nanochip) sensor platform for the"label-less"THz spectroscopy finger printing of biological species and agents. In the proposed Phase II of this program, ROI will focus on the engineering development of a manufacturable optical nanolithography technology to enable ...
