  2. Graphene-Based Chemical Agent Detector

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD14102

    Worldwide terrorist use of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) with chemical/biological (CB) warfare agents is growing. To address the CBD"s need for a sensitive, field-deployable sensor platform in sensing networks, UAVs, and stand-alone CB point detection, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a novel Graphene-Based Chemical Agent Detector (GCAD) based on a sensitive graphene layer ...

  3. Global Spatiotemporal Disease Surveillance System

    SBC: Cellmic, LLC            Topic: CBD13102

    Rapid screening of chemical/biological threats and infectious diseases is a challenging task especially in remote locations due to the lack of appropriate laboratory infrastructure and advanced instrumentation. In such resource-scarce settings, wireless, robust, accurate, and easy-to-use diagnostics tools are required to enable real-time monitoring of various medical conditions, point-of-care appl ...

  4. Innovative concept for detection and identification of biological toxins

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD14101

    We aim to create a low-cost, high-sensitivity hand-held plasmonic biosensor capable of sensing biotoxins. We will do this by using newly developed biodesign technology to create a new class of proteins which have an orders-of-magnitude increase in SPR signal-to-noise. These will be incorporated into a novel SPR device in which the transmission of light is affected by the binding of a particular t ...

  5. Advanced Real-Time Surface Contamination Sensor

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: CBD13103

    An advanced sensor for proximal detection of contaminants on surfaces is proposed based on hyperspectral differential polarization reflection of LWIR radiation from an active IR source, blackbody lamp or wavelength agile laser and an advanced unmixing algorithm whose feasibility was demonstrated by field test data in the Phase I program. The high signal-to-noise ratios provided by the active irrad ...

  6. Rapid biodosimetry for accurate assessment of individual radiation exposure levels

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: CBD13108

    In the event of a catastrophic radiation disaster, first responders, both civilian and military, must be able to quickly and accurately measure the radiation dose received by victims in order to screen, perform triage and effectively assign available resources. First-responders must also be able to accurately evaluate their own exposure to radiation in order to make return-to-duty decisions in rea ...

  7. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is well suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents, illicit drugs, or specific combinations of indicator chemicals used in processing nuclear materials. An example mobile Raman spectroscopy system is the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface Detector (JCSD), which uses a gaseous KrF exc ...

  8. 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) ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
