Broadband agile wavelength laser for chemical aerosol detection

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A09A-T020
Budget: 11/23/09 - 05/23/10
PI: Dr. David B. Cohn

Chemical agents in aerosol form have been identified as a major threat, and there is now interest in applying the long wave infrared frequency agile laser sensor to detection of this important agent form. If successful, it would be possible to perform detection of chemical agent vapors and aerosols and biological aerosol agents with a single du...

Advanced Algorithms For A Combined Chem-Bio Standoff Sensor

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T026
Budget: 08/07/08 - 02/07/09
PI: Dr. David B. Cohn

The program addresses algorithm development in critical areas that have received little or no attention in the past, including mixtures of chemical vapors, single and mixed chemical aerosols, mixtures of bio aerosols, and mixtures of chemical vapors. New approaches based on parallel extraction of material spectral dependence of the material in p...

Advanced Point Sensor

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T024
Budget: 07/31/08 - 01/31/09
PI: Dr. David B. Cohn

The enhanced capability point bio and chem sensor is based respectively on the recently discovered phenomenology of biological aerosol differential backscatter in the long wave infrared proven in field trials with a standoff sensor and on differential absorption. The novel point sensor will use compact, wavelength agile transmitters, including q...

Software for the Design and Certification of Unitized Airframe Components

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T015
Budget: 10/20/06 - 10/20/08
PI: Dr. Robert Tryon

This SBIR Phase II will demonstrate the feasibility for a unitized component structural design tool that allows for holistic risk assessment. The analysis will transform the FEA predicted stress (or strain) state into fully probabilistic assessment of uncertainty in geometry and loading throughout the component. Thereafter the design tool will c...
