  1. Improved Rapid Detection of Viable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: 05NCERA2

    Innovative Biotechnologies International, Inc., has reported previously a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence-Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposome nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology.  This assay system is based on the ability to immunocapture low nu ...

  2. Field Analytical Model for Perchlorate

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERD4

    Perchlorate is a widely used component of solid fuel, missile and rocket propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. It has been shown to reduce iodide uptake into the thyroid gland. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found perchlorate contamination in 18 states and believes contamination may exist in as many as 39 states. In early January 2005, the National Academy of Science ...

  3. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  6. Improved Rapid Detection of Biable Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BIOTECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL            Topic: N/A

    We have previously reported a simple method to detect viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water using the isothermic Nucleic Acid Sequence Based Amplification (NASBA) method, coupled with a rapid liposme nanovesicle (Nanozome)-based biosensor technology. This assay system is based upon the ability to immunocapture low numbers (i.e., five or more) oocysts and heat shock them to induc ...

  7. NOC- Network-on-a-Chip for Hardware-based Accelerated Simulation of Ad Hoc Mobile Communications Networks

    SBC: ACHRONIX SEMICONDUCTOR LLC            Topic: A06T008

    Large scale Wireless ad hoc networks are growing in use in both military and commercial environments. In the military environment, the Future Combat Systems (FCS) initiative will rely upon the Tactical Mobile Ad Hoc Communications Network (TMACN) for all communications between warfighters, manned and unmanned military equipment, and sensors. Simulation and performance estimation of the TMACN is ...

  8. An Integrated Hardware-Software Platform for Real-Time Modeling and Simulation of TMACNs

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: A06T008

    The Army’s Future Combat System will rely on a data communications backbone based on the tactical mobile ad-hoc communications network (TMACN). The unique nature of TMACNs – their mobility, adaptability, and potentially substantial sizes – makes performance prediction a difficult task, and one that is best carried out through simulation. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts and RTI Interna ...

  9. Use of Adaptive, Non-line of Sight Smart Sensors to Recognize and Locate Threats to Physical Assets and Field Forces

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N06076

    Protection of ground troops and physical assets against hostile attacks on the battlefield is a crucial capability that must be provided by a combination of sensors and automated signal processing software that can function at all times, including in low-light/no-light and non-line-of-sight conditions. Existing surveillance sensor systems lack the automated ability to detect and classify threats. ...

  10. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...
