  1. A Novel, Low Power, High Throughput, High Efficiency, Scalable Electrostatic Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: HSB041003

    Current bioaerosol monitoring strategies rely on inertia-based sampling and suffer from high power consumption and low efficiency limitations. In contrast, our overall objective is to design and demonstrate a novel electrostatic sampler that provides dramatic improvements including low power requirement (90% for 1-10mm), high viability (>80%), scalability for varying threat scenarios, low noise, a ...

  2. CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET Receptor Scaffold for Molecular Recognition and Direct Detection

    SBC: Peterson Ridge LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is designed to test a novel receptor scaffold/sensor combination for the selective and direct measurement of antigens and to compare direct electric detection of antigens against the corresponding antibody based ELISA method. The scaffold concept combines a robust nucleic acid receptor (aptamer) coupled to a low cost CMOS FET and AlGaN MODFET transducer. Aptamers are short nucleic aci ...

  3. Marine Asset Tag Using Near Field Electromagnetic Ranging

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System (MATTS) using a breakthrough wireless tracking technology called near field electromagnetic ranging (NFER¿). The primary objective of Phase I is to validate that NFER¿ technology is the best RF solution for tracking containers on ships and in ports. Phase I will also (1) develop an overall architecture for the MATTS; (2) design the container tag; ...

  4. Phage Derived Receptor Scaffold

    SBC: WELD STAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The risk of biological terrorism is significant because of the high potency, widespread availability, and ease of dissemination of some biological threat agents. The earliest recognition of a bioterrorist attack may be indicated only by the clinical manifestation of the intended disease which, in some cases, can take days to weeks to present itself. Furthermore, laboratory confirmation of the diag ...

  5. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...

  6. Improved Fruit Juice Concentration Process

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    No simple/convenient process exists to concentrate wine without developing a burnt taste. This program develops the osmotic distillation process to concentrate wine at room temperature. Osmotic distillation enhances dewatering approximately 10-fold and in so doing makes the process economically attractive.

  7. Enhanced Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a growth hormone for plants and therefore, removal of ethylene plays an important part in maintaining the freshness of plants, especially fruits and flowers. Ethylene is generated by the fruits themselves, and is therefore a self-ripening component. In shipping of fruits and vegetables there is a great deal of effort that goes into controlling the atmosphere around the fruits and veget ...

  8. A New Vanilla Industry as a Community Development Engine

    SBC: Hawaiian Vanilla Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The problem being studied in the present proposal is how to bring a village that had been decimated by the loss of its major employer back to the vibrant town it was during the heyday of "King Cane". Can a single business make up for the lack of jobs and opportunities in a small Hawai`i town that has lost its unifying activity? The opportunity is the interest shown by village members in the activi ...

  9. Selective Breeding Marine Shrimp for Low Salinity Culture

    SBC: High Health Aquaculture, Inc. (HHA)            Topic: N/A

    In the United States, a small but profitable shrimp farming industry is located along the Gulf Coast of Texas with a few coastal farms in South Carolina and Hawaii. Because coastal lands in the U.S. are extremely expensive and highly regulated, expansion of the U.S. shrimp industry along the coasts is nearly impossible. In response to this constraint, shrimp farming at inland sites is now being te ...

  10. Early Warning Systems to Detect, and Suppress, Eastern Tent Caterpillar on Horse Farms

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In 2001 the equine industry of Kentucky was faced with the sudden and unexpected emergence of a disease now called Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome (MRLS). This disease resulted in early and late-term abortions in horses, and in an economic loss to Kentucky over $300 million dollars. The disease was correlated with the presence of large numbers of eastern tent caterpillars (ETC), Malacosoma america ...
