  1. Blast Resistant Armor Appliqués

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: A05030

    Armors that provide protection against blast do so through a number of mechanisms. Simple elastic mechanisms include reflection of the blast wave because of the armor's high impedance relative to air, and distribution of energy over a large area by wave propagation through the armor. Non-linear effects, such as plasticity and damage evolution, enhance the armor's effectiveness by dissipating mec ...

  2. Dry Sterilization Procedures Based on Variable Frequency Microwave Technology

    SBC: FIORE INDUSTRIES INC.            Topic: A05T010

    Several of the present methods of decontamination of biothreat agents, especially the spore-forming Bacillus anthracis (anthrax) rely on steam or disinfection with highly corrosive agents. While these methods are effective, such procedures are impractical when the contaminated materials and/or equipment are mail, paper documents, delicate instruments, or complex machinery such as mail sorting equ ...

  4. Low Cost Radio Based ID and Position Reporting System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A04111

    The US military has a developed and is testing several technologies that promise to reduce fratricide incidents on the battlefield. These Radio-Based Combat Identification Systems consist of specially modified, currently inventoried, military radio systems. These systems do not allow identification of friendly forces using commercial radio systems and, therefore, such personnel may be targeted. ...

  6. Fluorescence-based Multiplexed Universal Virus Detection Platform

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A05165

    The aim of this study is to develop a multiplexed virus detection platform capable of detecting within three hours the presence of any known virus, genetically modified virus or unidentified virus, in clinical samples like serum. A PCR based technique will be employed to identify the presence of unique viral sequences. In its ultimate form, the proposed system will encompass a simple and rapid s ...

  7. Rapid Cell-based Toxicity Sensor Using Intergrated Micro Ring-resonators as Signal Transducer

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A05164

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop a highly sensitive, portable, vertebrate cell-based sensor for rapid detection of toxic chemicals in water that can be used as a standalone device or can be integrated into the ESB system. The key technological innovation that will be employed is a unique photonic element called a microring resonator (MR) as signal transducer, which undergoes a meas ...

  8. Nanotechnology-based System for the Detection and Photodynamic Neutralization of BW Agents

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A05122

    Our goal is to detect and eliminate BW agents rapidly. In this project, we will develop functionalized nanoparticle photodynamic agents that can be bioconjugated with monoclonal antibodies to rapidly detect and kill viral infections. During Phase I, we will concentrate on the design and fabrication of handheld prototype detector that can be used as a sentry sensor for virus, e.g. RSV, detection ...

  9. Detection of Munitions in Used Packing Materials

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: A04015

    Munitions and detonable residues of energetic materials in used munitions containers represent a significant safety hazard to operations personnel and equipment. Besides the possibility of containing unexploded munitions, munitions containers are contaminated with explosives residues ranging in concentration from surface contamination to mass detonable quantities of explosives. While trace surfa ...

  10. Silica-Based Corrosion Protection Microcapsules

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04C04

    Painting metal provides excellent corrosion protection, as long as the paint remains intact. However, if the paint peels or becomes chipped after an impact, corrosion can occur in the revealed metallic area and even spread underneath the paint. Therefore, regular inspection and maintenance are required to ensure that the paint remains undamaged. Repairs may be required for damage that occurs betwe ...
