  1. Novel Material for Capture and Spectral Detection of Hazardous Vapors

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04T021

    Rapid detection and unambiguous identification of chemical warfare agents is vital for efficient use of military and civil defense resources. While a variety of detection technologies are currently available, field-deployable systems such as the M21 passive IR standoff detector and the CAM/ICAM ion mobility detector are prone to false alarms due to the presence of interfering species. Combining ...

  2. Covert Engineering Techniques Using Electrokinetic Technology

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04149

    With increasing numbers of US Military personnel engaged in overseas missions the Army Corps of Engineers are involved in the construction of necessary runways, bridges, and other structures needed for the rapid forward deployment of troops. Many of these construction endeavors will require altering the physical properties of the soil surrounding the construction site such as dewatering or soil h ...

  3. Covert Engineering Techniques Using Electrokinetic Technology

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04149

    In order to obtain and maintain battle space dominance through rapid force insertion it is necessary to have the ability to construct and maintain theatre landing zones, runways etc., that may be undersized, under strength or severely deteriorated. Modern construction and engineering techniques does not have the capabilities to rapidly upgrade or construct contingency sites to support future forc ...

  4. Lightweight High Yield Borazane-fed Hydrogen Generator

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05034

    With 19.6 wt% hydrogen in its composition, borazane (NH3BH3), a water soluble, non-cryogenic solid, is one of the most hydrogen rich solids around, and a promising means to deliver hydrogen for use in fuel cells. The hydrogen can be liberated by either hydrolysis or pyrolysis with a throttleable hydrolysis reactor producing a higher hydrogen yield from a given mass of borazane with no need for a ...

  5. A Novel Device for Surface-Enhanced Detection of Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF05T025

    Onsite detection of potentially harmful chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWAs) in a timely manner is critical to the defense and safety of personnel and material assets. However, currently available methods for biological agent detection rely on fragile biomolecules for target recognition, require sample preparation, and well equipped laboratory for further analysis. A variety of detecti ...

  6. Direct Ammonia-Borane Alkaline Fuel Cell with In Situ Electrolyte Replacement

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04069

    As a water soluble powder with 19.6 wt% hydrogen, borazane (ammonia-borane, NH3BH2) is an excellent source of hydrogen for fuel cells. In Phase I of this project we demonstrated that a fuel cell can directly consume NH3BH3 from an aqueous solution and produce 160 mW/cm² with 80% of the fuel utilized electrochemically while operating at current densities suitable for portable devices. Using a hi ...

  7. Direct Ammonia-Borane Alkaline Fuel Cell with In Situ Electrolyte Replacement

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A04069

    The rapidly increasing power requirements of the objective force warrior's detection and communication equipment requires the development of advanced power sources beyond that of current battery technology. Soldiers bear the physical and logistical burden of carrying many pounds of batteries into missions. The development of novel high energy density personal power supplies can alleviate this bu ...

  8. Fuel Cell Operating on Neat Formic Acid

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05T005

    Pure, or nearly pure, (neat) formic acid is easily oxidized electrochemically. It also has sufficient energy density to produce a system with over 600 Wh/kg net energy density. We propose to combine Lynntech's light, simple, and rugged monopolar fuel cell technology with high activity catalysts produced using technology developed by Vanderbilt University to produce a high energy density fuel cel ...

  9. Multifunctional Dressings for Improved Wound Healing

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05131

    In the present political climate, there is a significantly increased risk of vesicant agent attacks against the US armed forces and the civilian population. At present vesicant injury treatment involves wound debridement, followed by skin grafting or the application of wound dressings, which are limited in the benefits that they offer, and need to be changed out frequently, thus adding to the suf ...

  10. Nanopore Based Biological Sensor for Detection of Prostate Cancer

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05181

    Prostate cancer, the second most common cancer in men, is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States. PSA is used widely as a serum marker for the early detection of prostate cancer and for monitoring disease recurrence after therapy. However, the use of the biomarker has been criticized as well and the controversy remains unresolved. The major drawback of PSA screening is its relativ ...
