Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Ralph Whitten, President
Award Amount: $98,796.00
Abstract:
We present a highly qualified team, including security experts and technical experts, and a patent-pending new microcantilever array sensor technology (which has been tested for chemical and explosive detection) to be integrated with low-cost electronics and networking modules and implemented as… More

Soil and Subsurface Contaminant Sensor System Based on Self-Sensed Microcantilever Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Ralph Whitten, Mr.
Award Amount: $99,949.00
Abstract:
78644S The widespread use of mercury (Hg) in products, along with the equally widespread release of mercury to the environment as a result of manufacturing operations, presents a serious health risk. Mercury contamination is also a significant issue at several government sites, ranging from trace… More

Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Jesse Adams, VP and CTO
Award Amount: $399,970.00
Abstract:
The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a… More

Bulk Currency Vapor detection in Confined Spaces
