  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: R*BAT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Special Operations forces (SOF) operate in all weather conditions. It has identified a need for a micro-cooling system that can be vehicle mounted and man-portable, as well as provide a capability to cool vehicle mounted communications and electronics equipment. To meet the needs of SOF the system must be small, lightweight, quiet, low power, and gasless. We propose a compact micro-cooling system ...

  3. Miniature Netted Sensors

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06015

    Williams-Pyro proposes to develop an AccuTag Miniature Surveillance and Tracking System (Accu-MiSTS). Accu-MiSTS employs cluster management techniques and ad-hoc networking to provide a readily scalable architecture with which to perform comprehensive surveillance. A cluster is comprised of one supernode and up to 65,536 nodes, all of which are within the communication range of at least one other ...

  4. High Yield, High Efficiency Bio-Refining

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N/A

    Processing of vegetable oils is complicated by the need to remove free fatty acids. Washing with caustic is a viable process but is inefficient because fatty acids and caustic form soaps which cause emulsions. These emulsions cause a yield loss of 1-1.5% or 160-240 Million lb/yr of soybean oil alone. The purpose of this project is to improve yields and energy efficiency in vegetable oil processing ...

  5. Recreation Trail Motor Vehicle Barrier- Protecting Rural Environments and Providing Access to People Using Mobility Devices

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Recreation trails are a key component of the social, economic and health of rural communities. People with mobility impairments are often excluded from trails, shared-use paths, parks and other public areas where barriers are erected to prevent access by motorized trail vehicles (MTVs), to control livestock or wildlife, as an access point in a fenced area, or for a variety of other reasons. Many p ...

  6. High-Throughput Microbial Monitoring of Food and Water by Mass Spectrometry of Ribosomal RNA

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Rapid, exploratory diagnostics are needed for the identification of bacteria in complex food and water samples. This project focuses on development of a novel, rapid system for molecular identification of bacteria.

  7. Technical Feasibility of Field Maceration of Upgrading Nutritional Value of Bermudagrass Hay & Implications for Rural Dev. in LA

    SBC: E & E Research            Topic: N/A

    The waste of unprocessed vegetable matter from normal harvesting can be used to create feeds for livestock and the pulp can be used to produce methanol for fuel. We feel that we should use all resources to their fullest potential. To create a refined machine that will allow the field processing of current waste products into viable feed and fuel products.

  8. Non-Leachable Boron-Based Wood Preservative for Ground Contact and Exterior Applications

    SBC: Merichem Chemicals & Refinery Services LLC            Topic: N/A

    An ideal wood preservative is stable in wood, biodegrades in soil, is non-corrosive, and if the wood is burned, either inadvertently or for disposal, does not produce toxic fumes or ash. Boron is a broad spectrum preservative with good efficacy against fungi and most insects. However, boron preservatives are not stable in wood due to their high solubility in water. A boron-based compound with func ...

  9. Handheld FRET-Aptamer Sensor for Agricultural Security

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    America is highly vulnerable to agricultural bioterrorism. A successful attack could be devastating to the U.S. and world economy. Rapid detection of agricultural bioterrorism agents is critical to limiting or halting the spread of such disease agents. This project concerns development of a rapid, facile, one-step fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-aptamer assay and handheld sensor for ...

  10. A Simple Ethylene-Detecting Device to Determine Ripeness of Individual Apples In Orchard

    SBC: RediRipe LLC            Topic: N/A

    Economic losses due to inadequate ripeness detection in the orchard and post-harvest continue to plague the apple industry. It is anticipated that the in-orchard/packinghouse sensor approach will significantly reduce the waste/spoilage-to-edible-fruit ratio, thereby increasing fruit quality and availability and resultant consumer demand at the domestic retail level as well as in the export market. ...
