  1. Non-contact Track Gage Measurement System (NC-TGMS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 081FR4

    One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments.  Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA.  Currently, the FRA wishes to develop a non-contact track gage measurement system that overcomes the limitations of current sy ...

  2. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings.  This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system.  The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera.  ...

  3. Roadway Waste Heat Electricity Production Using Impoved Roadway Paving Technologies

    SBC: Planphoria LLC            Topic: 091FH5

    Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use.  Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by le ...

  4. In vivo Testing of S. aureus alpha-Hemolysin Inhibitors

    SBC: Innovative Biologics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have recently demonstrated that alpha-hemolysin produced by S. aureus plays a key role in the pathogenesis of staphylococcal pneumonia, and identified beta-cyclodextrin derivatives that potently inhibit the cytotoxic effects of this secreted bacterial toxin. The overall goal of this feasibility study is to examine the ability of these inhibitors to provide i ...

  5. Small Molecule Blockers of B. anthracis Toxin

    SBC: Innovative Biologics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The results from our SBIR Phase II project demonstrated that ?-cyclodextrin derivatives designed to block the transmembrane channel formed by B. anthracis protective antigen can inhibit the cytotoxic effects of anthrax toxin at low- and sub-micromolar concentrations. Several compounds were tested in vivo and showed effective protection in rats challenged with l ...

  6. Non-Intrusive Automated Portable Data Collection System for Aging Surveys

    SBC: AFrame Digital, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Cells and Surveys report (National Research Council 2000) reports that collecting biological information dramatically improves the value of household surveys by adding a rich dataset of information to longitudinal databases that is not collected today. In fact, since the Cells and Surveys report the collection of biological data and performance measures (in ...

  7. Random Hand Hygiene Prompts

    SBC: AMRON CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of the work proposed here is to develop and demonstrate Random Hand Hygiene Prompts (RHHP). RHHP is a device that 1) plays computer generated voice messages over loudspeakers at a hospital nursing station and 2) records hand hygiene events with soap and with sanitizer there. RHHP's voice messages play at random times and encourage health ...

  8. Bayesian Fall Risk Assessment Instrument

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this multi-phase SBIR research effort is to develop a handheld fall risk assessment instrument for use by health and elder care providers. Falls occur in up to 30% of those over the age of 65 and up to 40% for people over the age of 80. Falls place each individual at risk for dangerous closed head injury and long bone fractures. The mortalit ...

  9. Head-Mounted Vibrotactile Prosthesis for Patients with Chronic Postural Instabili

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent advances in the size and performance of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS)-based inertial instruments enable the development of a balance prosthesis to provide feedback regarding head orientation to patients with chronic balance dysfunction. There is a need for balance prostheses to assist patients with such chronic balance disorders, as well for dev ...

  10. Sleep and Physical Activity Recording Technical Analysis (SPARTA)System

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR Phase I application addresses the development of an integrated, multi-purpose Sleep and Physical Activity Recording and Technical Analysis (SPARTA) system that can be used to independently assess both sleep (duration, quality, and timing) and physical activity (duration, frequency, intensity, and timing). As an objective monitor for the study of sleep ...
