  1. Advanced Tools for Process Specification Language

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will (i) extend and harden the PSL Editor and the Ontology-Driven XSLT Generator (ODXG) tools and (ii) extend the process description syntax (PDS) derived from the PSL for both KIF and XML/RDF formats. In addition, we will extend the PSL metatheoretical framework to support the PDS and the PSL tools by providing PSL extensions to support calendars and activity specialization, and by d ...

  2. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  3. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  4. Aptamer Enhanced Biorecognition Reagent System

    SBC: OMNISITE BIODIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OmniSite proposes to continue Phase I effort to develop aptamer-based assays to anthrax spores and SEB for detection instruments based on ECL, FP, and FRET formats. OmniSite will compare the different assay formats to determine which of thesedemonstrates the most sensitivity and specificity, as well as being robust, cost effective, and facile. Performance characteristics of the most sensitive ...

  5. Automated Reconfiguable Intelligent Radio (ARIR)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an Automated Reconfigurable Intelligent Radio (ARIR), which consists of a series of distributed nodes that will relay voice and data to Intelligent Access Points (IAP) located within the building. This system will allow faster, more accurate information transmission, resulting in timely fire detection and safer firefighting. The main goal of ARIR is to ident ...

  6. Development of Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to model and develop software to provide an interface allowing a common method of incorporating sensing components within different systems. The proposed software package, called the Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT), will provide the circuit designer with a complete sensor interface solution. MOSIT will provide not only the Network Capable Ap ...

  7. Development of the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Firefighters have expressed the need for both increased accuracy in fire detection systems and greater access to environmental information in the event of a fire. To accomplish both tasks, Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS). This system comprises both an advanced fire detection system and the networking capability necessary to provide real-time ...

  8. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  9. Dual-Probe CD-AFM Calibration

    SBC: XIDEX CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Xidex proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of calibrating a critical-dimension atomic force microscope (CD-AFM) without the use of a reference artifact in such a way that high-precision critical dimensions can be generated independently of changes in probe tip shape (including the effects of tip wear), presence of the surface force uncertainties, and the stage uncertainties. The proposed calibr ...

  10. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...
