  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. 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 ...

  4. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs while providing protection against CB ...

  5. CBRN Sensor and Sensor Netting Algorithms

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD09110

    If given the opportunity, a terrorist organization such as al Qaeda could unleash Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear (CBRN) material in future attacks. Accordingly, future CBRN combat system requirements include an online network of traditional and non-traditional CBRN sensors to improve situation awareness and response to a CBRN event. The key to exploiting this advanced capability, h ...

  6. Durable Anti-fog Coatings for Respiratory Protection Systems

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD09101

    Maintaining a high level of visibility in ballistic visors and respiratory protection systems is very difficult under inclement operational conditions. In particular, the transparent lenses will fog up with high humidity in the environment or breathing. There have been significant efforts in the development of hydrophilic coatings that will ‘wet out’ in high humidity to prevent fogging on tr ...
