Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD13-103
Budget: 08/28/14 - 08/27/15

An advanced sensor for proximal detection of contaminants on surfaces is proposed based on hyperspectral differential polarization reflection of LWIR radiation from an active IR source, blackbody lamp or wavelength agile laser and an advanced unmixing algorithm whose feasibility was demonstrated by field test data in the Phase I program. The hig...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD13-103
Budget: 07/02/13 - 12/31/13

A new and promising algorithm is proposed based on hyperspectral unmixing by a sequential processor that will be further developed for data fusion to both enhance sensor sensitivity and eliminate the need for separate background interrogation, thereby allowing for fast real time detection. Sensor sensitivity will be improved by a combination of...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD11-106
Budget: 05/22/12 - 05/22/14

As a natural extension of the Phase I results, novel laser LWIR transmitters will be developed, demonstrated, and delivered to support development of next generation point and local area proximal standoff sensors based on newly demonstrated phenomenologies to simultaneously detect biological particles, chemical vapors, and chemical aerosols with...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD11-106
Budget: 05/06/11 - 11/05/11

Program tasks include analysis to improve wavelength diversity, high PRF discharges and catalysis in normal and isotopic pulsed CO2 laser mixtures, and high energy extraction in a single mode resonator. Analysis will be performed for pulse energy scaleup to the 1-5 J level at high PRF in support of the cloud search, track, and map functions. T...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A09A-T020
Budget: 09/22/10 - 09/21/11

The Phase I effort was successful in experimentally showing feasibility of a combined isotope transmitter that can be developed and demonstrated under the Phase II program. The initial experimental results give the window of gas mixtures for a stable discharge. Laser extraction tests were accomplished with C12/C13 mixtures to give guidance for ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T024
Budget: 12/21/09 - 12/21/12

Results of the Phase I work showed that an advanced, compact Point Sensor can be built with good sensitivity for detection of both biological agents and chemical aerosol and vapor agents. This will be the first point sensor capable of this dual role. The

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A09A-T020
Budget: 11/23/09 - 05/23/10

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...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T024
Budget: 07/31/08 - 01/31/09

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...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-T023
Budget: 10/06/06 - 10/06/08

The direct versus heterodyne detection tradeoffs made in the Phase I program clearly showed that direct detection is strongly favored over heterodyne detection based on sensor performance analysis; assessment of laser and electronics hardware; and conside

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-T023
Budget: 08/08/05 - 08/08/06

CO2 laser based sensors are poised to enter the next phase of development defined by smaller, lighter systems based on heterodyne detection. This will have significant impact on the Artemis acquisition program, other military deployments, and for homeland defense systems. The program Phase I objectives are to perform supporting analysis and deve...
