  1. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Science Inc. (PSI) will develop a new approach to chemical vapor detection based on a novel open-path sample cell design. The PhaseI system level model predicts SNR supporting a probability of detection of 95% and a MTBFA of 168 hours for all relevant CWAs and TICs at the10 minute negligible MEG level at a 20 s measurement time. In addition to robust detection, the system design can provi ...

  2. Efficient Materials for Optical Cryocoolers

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: CBD171001

    This Phase-II SBIR proposal directly addresses the need to improve the size, weight and power, SWaP, of optical cryocoolers. In particular, theproposers will work toward increasing the efficiency of optical cryocoolers by incorporating cooling materials that require less input laserpower to achieve a given heat lift. The new cooling materials will be high-purity crystals doped with active rare-ear ...

  3. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Used for Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    Electro-optical infrared and long wavelength infrared detectors and sensors are increasingly important for the Chemical/Biological Defensecommunity. Solid-state optical cooler materials are in demand for replacing mechanical closed cycle coolers used in current LWIR standoffsensors to achieve cryogenic temperatures. Recent advances in optical cooling of rare-earth doped materials are pointing towa ...

  4. A uMECS miniature blower for respiratory protection systems, Phase II

    SBC: Vibrant Composites Inc.            Topic: CBD14103

    Air management solutions capable of reducing heat and moisture burden are not suitable for integration in wearable respiratory protection systems due to excessive weight, volume, and power requirements of existing technologies. Vibrant Composites proposes applying its unique uMECS manufacturing technology towards development of an ultra-lightweight and power efficient miniature blower. Fundamental ...

  5. Burkholderia antibody molecules for therapeutics and diagnostics

    SBC: BIOO SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: CBD14105

    Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei are highly pathogenic Gram - negative bacteria and the causative agents of melioidosis and glanders, respectively. These infections, which occur in humans and other animals, are endemic is wide regions of the developing world. This Phase II SBIR project will build on the success of our Phase I work, which established methods for generating monoclon ...

  7. Concurrent identification of Natural Antibiotics-Producing Gene Clusters and Culture Conditions

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: CBD152004

    Modern metagenomics studies on diverse microbiomes revealed immense repertoires of potential natural products/antibiotics to be tapped into.However, identifying such secondary metabolites (SMs) directly from a complex microbiome remains rarely successful due to two major technicalchallenges: i) difficulty in dissecting complex microbiome samples and massive metagenomics data, and ii) difficulty in ...

  8. Low-Output High Precision Automated Powder Disseminator

    SBC: ADVANCED MECHANICAL SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY,            Topic: CBD06101

    This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop a high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to release a precise amount of C&B agents in the controlled detection experiments. However, such a technology does not exist at the present time. After examining existing technologies, we believe that the r ...

  9. Filovirus drug discovery using novel combinations of approved drugs

    SBC: APATH, LLC            Topic: CBD05119

    The goal of this proposal is to find novel combinations of approved drugs for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with filoviruses. Ebola and Marburg viruses, the only filoviruses, cause an acute hemorrhagic fever syndrome which has a high mortality rate and poses a significant bio-terrorism threat. There are currently no therapeutic agents available to treat filovirus infections and the ...

  10. Unique Conducting Polymer-Coated, Metallized Microporous Membranes with High Electro-Osmotic Function for Chem-Bio Protection

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: CBD06105

    In unrelated, prior and ongoing work, this firm has already developed unique, double-sided, metallized (Au, Pt, etc.) thin, highly flexible, microporous membranes, used as electrodes in unique electrochromic devices. The active electrochromic material, on either side of the membrane, is a Conducting Polymer (CP). These microporous membrane electrodes are ideal candidates for electro-osmotic membra ...
