  1. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  3. Biological Efficacy and Phytotoxicity Optimization of a Novel Oxidant Product for Plant Production

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Floriculture and nursery crops represent one of the highest value-per-acre industries in the farm sector. Similar to food crops, ornamental crops are infected by many fungal and bacterial pathogens, resulting in substantial yield and quality losses. This project addresses stakeholder needs by developing a novel, low-risk disease management tool. This project will reduce the inappropriate applicati ...

  4. Phase II: Rural Coastal Alaska Fish Waste Conversion

    SBC: Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The Alaskan fishing industry produces over one million metric tons of by-product and waste annually. Rural coastal Alaska communities have been using the grind and dump method for decades. There is an opportunity to expand existing onshore processing in rural coastal communities and provide additional economic value from fish waste and, simultaneously, reducing or eliminating the impact of current ...

  5. A CSA Model to bring Locally Grown Foods to the Corporate Workplace, Inner City Households and Schools Utilizing a Supermarket Infrastructur

    SBC: RAINBOW ORGANIC FARMS CO            Topic: N/A

    Locally grown foods account for less than one percent of the total $900 billion in retail food sales in the U.S. (18) Therefore, consumers purchase more than ninety percent of their food from supermarkets. In order for local small family farms to grab a greater portion of food sales, they must get their locally grown foods on the mainstream supermarket shelves, as well as partner with stores to ge ...

  6. NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF FINGER JOINT STRENGTH

    SBC: Engineering Data Mgmt Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, NO METHOD EXISTS WHICH CAN RELIABLY DETERMINE THE TENSILE STRENGTH OF AN ADHESIVE-BONDED FINGER JOINT USING NONDESTRUCTIVE PROCEDURES ONLY. THE USE OF ACOUSTO-ULTRASONIC NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR THE FEASIBILITY OF PROVIDING STRESS WAVE PARAMETERS WHICH CAN BE CORRELATED WITH JOINT TENSILE STRENGTH TO DEVELOP PREDICTIVE EQUATIONS. THE PROCEDURE WILL FOCUS ON DEL ...

  7. QUANTIFICATION OF CONSERVATISMS IN SEISMIC RISK ESTIMATES THROUGH ENGINEERING ADVANCEMENT OF SEISMIC PRA

    SBC: Risk Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT CONSERVATISM IN MODERN SEISMIC PRA DERIVES FROM SIMPLIFICATIONS IN GROUND-MOTION CHARACTERIZATION AT THE INTERFACE OF SEISMIC HAZARD AND FRAGILITY METHODOLOGIES. THIS CONSERVATISM ARISES BECAUSE A SINGLE COMPOSITE-MAGNITUDE, BROAD-BAND, GROUND-MOTION SPECTRUM IS USED TO DERIVE FRAGILITY FUNCTIONS, WHEREAS THE MAJORITY OF MOTIONS CONTRIBUTING TO SITE HAZARD HAVE (LESS-DAMAGING) NARROW-B ...

  8. Wearable Smart Chemical Sensors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) are chemical substances that produce toxic effects if given in sufficient quantities and/or exposed for long durations. TICs are a great concern for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since it would be easier for terrorists to obtain and use than CAs. There are many commercially available handheld and personal gas monitors to monitor TICs. However, the ...

  9. Extension of antioxidant technology from cooled to frozen porcine semen

    SBC: MEMBRANE PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 83

    Because of its overall popularity, pork represents a significant, worldwide meat-protein source to be utilized in feeding the world's burgeoning population. In fact, most of the world prefers pork over any other animal protein. Interestingly, the U.S. is the larger exporter of pork but China is the largest producer and consumer of pork. Globally more than 109 million tons are produced, 11.3 mi ...

  10. Novel Oxidant Product Formulation for Greenhouse Disinfection

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse growers of ornamental plants and food crops must deal with plant diseases that can damage or destroy their produce. Within these enclosed greenhouses re-occurring plant pathogen diseases can be extremely problematic, infectious microbes and algae accumulate on moist surfaces. Disease within a greenhouse can be a key limitation to profitable plant production. Once introduced, pathogen po ...
