  1. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  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. Adaptation of Advanced Technology for Ordnance Surveillance to a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System

    SBC: PHASE IV ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, Phase IV proposes to develop the overall architecture and design of a prototype RF system for shipping containers that will operate in the marine environment while being loaded stacked aboard ship, on board deck of a ship in a stack, unloaded, and moved and stacked in shipping terminals. Phase IV has developed a state-of-the-art RF system for tracking and monitoring munitions, both at ...

  4. Photoaptamers as Capture Reagents for Biological Agents

    SBC: Somalogic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Antibodies are the prototypical capture reagent for biological agents (proteins and pathogens). However, despite their advantages, antibodies also have significant disadvantages with respect to shelf life, production reproducibility and, less importantly, cost. Alternative receptor scaffolds, such as nucleic acid-based photoaptamers, offer similar performance characteristics to antibodies but with ...

  5. Portable detector for low vapor pressure toxic chemicals

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    Synkera Technologies proposes to develop an innovative new field detector for low vapor pressure toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This detector will be based upon the integration of a unique low power pre-concentrator with an array of solid state electrochemical sensors. The solid state electrochemical sensors will be based upon the use of solid polymer electrolytes with microband electrodes. Th ...

  6. An Enhanced: Lower Power, Higher Efficiency, Concentrator Design

    SBC: Digital Flow Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Two primary efforts define the DFTI (Digital Flow Technologies, Inc.) response to the HSARPA requirements to develop a lower cost, more efficient, high (1000 liters/min) volume flow rate concentrator that requires lower power than the extant concentrator designs. The first of these is to create an operational ¿¿pre-concentrator¿¿ that will deliver a jet flow of air-plus-particles with ...

  7. Reactive Scrubbing for Mercury Removal and Stabilization

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The release of mercury into the environment via combustion processes has become an issue of concern for the US and the entire world. Major sources either are regulated or are under review to develop regulations to reduce emissions. ADA Technologies has successfully demonstrated the performance of a novel reactive scrubbing technology for the removal of vapor-phase mercury from incinerator exhaus ...

  8. Novel Membrane Systems for Off-Road Diesel Engine NOx Reduction

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

    The Bush Administration recently proposed a 90 percent reduction of air pollution emissions from off-road diesel equipment. The Administration indicated that diesel emissions are responsible for large amounts of particulate and NOx emissions from off-road construction, farm, mining, and locomotive and marine engines. A primary approach used to reduce NOx emissions is exhaust gas recirculation (E ...

  9. Continuous Extraction of Heavy Metals From AMD Streams

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a polymeric system that is capable of binding and removing heavy metal ions from an acid mine drainage (AMD) stream. In addition, this system will undergo controlled release of these metal ions that does not depend on changes in pH or the introduction of special solvents. The proposed system will undergo multiple cycles of metal binding an ...

  10. Efficient Acid Mine Drainage Multimetal Removal/Recovery

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Eltron Research, Inc., is seeking to develop an automated, solar-powered, flow-through prototype acid mine drainage (AMD) treatment system for unattended mitigation of AMD at thousands of abandoned mines and AMD currently entering the environment without any treatment. Harmful metals that are not readily degraded or detoxified enter the environment in significant quantities via numerous industria ...
