  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. Development of Monoclonal and Polyclonal Antibodies Suitable for a Commercial Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) ELISA

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical which does not occur naturally in the environment,it has been used in many commercial applications. A number of scientific findings since the late 1990's have elevated PFOAs to the category of great environmental concern beacuse of its persistence, and the potential for bioaccumulation and biomagnification. Effective environmental and health pr ...

  3. 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 ...

  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. Selection and Testing of Recombinant CAV 2- Rabies Vaccine for Oral Immunization of Wildlife

    SBC: Molecular Targeting Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Extensive worldwide reservoirs of rabies virus (RV) in wildlife and stray dogs continue to pose a serious risk of lethal infection of humans and cause a high economic burden. Immunization of wildlife and stray dogs with live vaccines is the only effective method to control and eventually eliminate rabies in carnivore species worldwide. In this application we propose to select canine adenovirus typ ...

  10. 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 ...
