  1. VCPR.ORG, an Internet platform for design and management of veterinary treatment protocols for livestock, and prudent use of prescription drugs

    SBC: DAIRY VETERINARIANS GROUP            Topic: 83

    Private veterinarians, most of whom work from small independent clinical practices, are a critical link in maintaining appropriate use of the antibiotics, hormones, and other pharmaceuticals that are vital to the health and welfare of livestock. VCPR.ORG will develop an Internet-based tool set designed to help veterinary practitioners serve their clients and protect public health, as well as guard ...

  2. Development of rapid, point-of-use dry chemistry dip-stick assays for food quality. Phase II work will focus on completion of the development of a rapid test for total polar compounds in frying oils.

    SBC: OXFORD BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 85

    Deep-frying is a very popular cooking technique that is used worldwide. Deep-frying gives a crispy texture to food and creates savory flavors. Since it is one of the costlier kitchen commodities, frying oil is typically reused several times before being discarded. Using the oil for long periods of time is bad for the oil, causing it to degrade quickly, depending on the type of food being fried, te ...

  3. Scale up and commercialization of high performance biocomposite structures

    SBC: Grow Plastics LLC            Topic: 88

    Grow Plastics has a technology that has been demonstrated to generate sandwich core structures in thermoplastic products. This efficient structure allows the generation of plastic products which are equivalent in strength to solid products, yet use 1/3 of the material. This substantial material reduction allows the production of parts that are lower environmental impact (due to source reduction) a ...

  4. Scaled Growth and Production of Mycelium Resin for Low Density Engineered Wood

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: 81

    Traditional engineered wood products, ubiquitous in our lives, are a human health hazard due to the carcinogenic nature of the binders used and lack of economical alternatives. The potential of mycelium binders as an alternative has become a primary research focus for Ecovative. Through the Phase I portion of this grant, Ecovative has identified low density (160-480 kg/m^3) engineered wood product ...

  5. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  6. Real-Time Portable Neutron Spectroscopy

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: DTRA07002

    A critical gap in homeland security is the inability to efficiently detect and identify kilogram-size samples of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM, uranium and transuranic elements). Penetrating neutron emission is unique to fissionable material and difficult to obscure with passive shielding. The current state of the art in neutron imaging is not suitable for field applications. Michigan Aerospace ...

  7. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  8. Vegetable oil based gel materials for cosmetic, toiletry, and candle markets

    SBC: APPLECHEM INC            Topic: N/A

    As a nation, we are faced with multiple challenges from global climate warming, rapid depletion of fossil oil, a strong desire to become independent from foreign oils, and a moral obligation to preserve our environment for future generations. In response to these challenges, many consumers have changed their purchasing behavior, preferring bio-based products over fossil-based products with a willi ...

  9. The Development of an Environmentally Compliant and Cost Effective On-Site Animal Manure Management Composting Technology

    SBC: ENGINEERED COMPOST SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Animal Manure Management is a major challenge to dairies and CAFO's with respect to efficient resource use, farm economics and environmental impacts. Composting is an established process for converting animal manure into other value-added products such as soil amendment and animal bedding material. However, current agricultural composting practices do not generally address increasingly stringent a ...

  10. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    In the US, Paralichthyd flounder, summer (Paralichthys dentatus) and southern (P. lethostigma) flounder on the east coast and California halibut (P. californicus) on the west, are high-value finfish with established markets worldwide. While the demand for flounder remains high globally, fishing pressure has significantly reduced wild catches, such that demand often exceeds supply. Meeting the incr ...
