Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-193
Budget: 01/28/04 - 01/28/06

Leaks in aircraft fluid lines, depending on their severity, can reduce aircraft performance, compromise mission availability, or result in catastrophic loss or damage to the aircraft. Conventional monitoring technologies may not be sufficiently sensitive to allow accurate prediction of performance degradation or failure for timely preventative m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-232
Budget: 12/10/03 - 06/09/04

Cyrano Sciences will apply their commercial hand held point detector to provide a direct and simple measurement of oil quality. This device uses an array of chemically sensitive resistors to measure the chemical profile of a sample, thereby giving a complete picture of a given sample in one measurement with little or no sample preparation. This ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: CBD02-203
Budget: 11/12/03 - 11/12/05

Cyrano Sciences, Inc. (Cyrano, CSI) proposes to build, test and deliver a multi-use electronic chemical detector badge (CDB) to alert and protect military and civilian personnel from exposure to chemical threat agents. The initial product will be a chemical badge to detect G-series nerve agents (GA, GB, GD) and H-series blister agents (HD, HN-3...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Tufts University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03T005
Budget: 09/26/03 - 09/26/04

The objective of this proposal is to develop a low cost infrared imaging array for the 3-5 micron window. Current infrared imaging sensors are optimized for the 10 micron regime which corresponds to the wavelength emitted by a warm body (e.g. human). The proposed lower wavelength regime would target hotter sources such as vehicle exhaust or ot...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-193
Budget: 11/20/02 - 05/19/03

Miniature, low power, lightweight, low cost, smart detectors such as those made by Cyrano Sciences, Inc. installed at critical fluidic system connections (e.g.; fuel pump, oil filter, hydraulic actuators), seal points, or interstitial spaces in the airframe can provide a timely warning to the pilot or maintenance crew that a critical fluid is le...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD02-203
Budget: 07/25/02 - 01/25/03

Wearable, passive detectors for toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and chemical warfare agents (CWAs) will greatly improve the safety of military personnel operating in chemically-threatened environments. Cyrano Sciences, Inc. (CSI) uses polymer-composite sensor technology to construct sensor arrays, that are uniquely positioned to address appli...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Cyrano Sciences, Inc. proposes to develop and demonstrate a distributed sensor network that uses arrays of traditional and non-traditional detectors with data fusion to improve system performance and to perform a real-time survery of the fire ground to better protect and inform firefighters. Each node consists of multiple detectors, including a ...
