  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 ...

  3. Moisture Effects on Hazardous Material Concentrations

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: DTRA04007

    This program will provide an improved understanding of the effects of atmospheric moisture on hazardous material and define methods to better model these effects in the DTRA HPAC model. The work will evaluate the interaction of moisture and hazardous material in the HPAC model based on two levels of coupling the transport equations for hazardous material and moisture. These evaluations will be com ...

  5. Agent Defeat Weapon Technology

    SBC: POSITRONICS RESEARCH LLC            Topic: DTRA04012

    Penetrating radiation holds the greatest promise as a non-intrusive means of destroying biological and chemical agents inside sealed containers, if the appropriate form is used. There are two recognized means including exposure to neutrons or application of pulses of gamma rays. Because of the pervasiveness of neutrons and the extremely large threat of collateral damage to humans, neutrons are onl ...

  6. Developing Nanotechnologies for Detection and/or Targeted Treatment

    SBC: SENIOR SCIENTIFIC            Topic: A04187

    Early detection of ovarian cancer is a primary goal in cancer imaging. Normal screening tests are pelvic examination and ultrasound. Pelvic examination reveals only advanced cancer, and ultrasound has many false positive results. We describe here, a novel approach using biomagnetic sensors to detect in-vivo, magnetic nanoparticles targeted to ovarian cancer cells and tumor angiogenesis sites. We h ...

  7. Rapid Detection of Biological and Chemical Contaminants in Water with Evanescent field Coherent-Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Senspex, Inc.            Topic: A05243

    A novel sensor based upon Coherent-Surface-Enhanced Raman scattering (CSERS) is being proposed for rapid detection of biological and chemical contaminants in water. The main characteristic of this sensor is a periodic array of metal nanoparticles or nanoshells deposited on the surface of an optical fiber waveguide. The nanoparticles/nanoshells will be deposited and immobilized in a periodic array ...

  9. Pulsed Electrospray Ionization Hadamard Transform Ion Mobility Spectrometry

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A05092

    The Phase I research will investigate the use of a piezoelectric pulsed electrospray ionization source (ESI) to implement Hadamard Transform (HT) signal multiplexing of ion mobility (IMS) instruments. The signal multiplexing advantage of the Hadamard transform method offers 50% instrument duty cycles and the pulsed ESI source enables up to 100% sample utilization. The performance improvements wi ...

  10. Functionally Reinforced Nanocomposite for Structural High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: A05036

    Future electromagnetic armor and gun systems will rely on large quantities of capacitive pulse power. At present, these capacitors represent a significant contribution to size and weight on mobile platforms, limiting their deploy-ability and strategic responsiveness. One method of minimizing mass and volume is to utilize capacitors as structural components. Significant savings could be achieved ...
