  1. A Long-Duration Commercial Microgravity Mouse Habitat: Waste/Odor Technologies

    SBC: Bioastronautical Systems Development Co.            Topic: N/A

    The Bioastronautical Systems Development Company (BSDC) proposes to develop habitat technologies for conducting long-term commercial research with mice in microgravity. Our research addresses solicitation section B4.02 Space Commercialization for the design/development of microgravity payloads for space station applications that lead to commercial products or services. In partnership with BioServe ...

  2. A Novel Rodent Bait to Reduce Lyme Disease Risk

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease accounting for more than 90% of all reported vector-borne diseases. In the eastern United States, the spirochete Borellia burgdorferi, which causes the disease, is carried by the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis). The main reservoir for the spirochete in the wild is the white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus), which serves as the m ...

  3. An Autonomous Wireless Instrumentation Network for Antarctic Research

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In November 1998 a network of seismic stations was deployed by S. Anandakrishnan (now at Penn State) and others in West Antarctica. These autonomous stations returned state-of-health data via satellite, and stored high-volume instrument data for later retrieval. The satellite links demonstrated a novel and sophisticated application of technology to the problem of retrieving in situ data from harsh ...

  4. An Ultralight Autonomous Robot for Weed Control

    SBC: PARALLEL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The effective control of weeds is one of the most important and costly issues in commercial agriculture. Practically all weed control is accomplished by mechanical means (cultivation) or broadcast spraying of herbicides. Global positioning systems, remote sensing and variable-rate technology have been used for site-specific herbicide application. The anticipated results will ...

  5. Automated Fouling Mitigation System for Dairy Filtration Membranes

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

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Filtration membranes in the dairy industry for milk and cheese whey processing are to be cleaned and disinfected every 24 hours. Typical filtration plants for large-scale dairy processing have hold-up volumes of 1000-2000 gallons requiring large volumes of cleaning solutions and large quantities of chemical cleansers. Reducing cleanser cost and the environmental impact of sp ...

  7. Biodegradable Nanocomposites for Advanced Packaging

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TDA Research, Inc. proposes to develop a biodegradable food packaging material that will address the issues of extended-life food storage and waste disposal in space. On long-term space missions, on board the International Space Station, or on future lunar or planetary facilities, a biodegradable food packaging plastic could be disposed of in composting environments that support agricultural produ ...

  8. Chemically Active Fruit Label for the Visual Estimation of Fruit Ripeness

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

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Certain fruits do not change color as they ripen and hence it may be difficult for consumers to select fruit that is ready to eat. Melons and winter pears are examples of fruit that is difficult to select. Most fruit is now individually labeled and this project will develop a label that will change color as the fruit approaches ripeness. This colorimetric label will provide ...

  10. Cockpit System Situational Awarness Modeling Tool

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    The Cockpit System Situational Awareness Modeling Tool will use the principles of discrete event simulation to predict pilot situational awareness (SA). The human performance modeling environment of IMPRINT combined with the cognitive modeling tool ACT-R will provide a powerful tool for the designers of cockpit systems. IMPRINT can already be used to predict pilot workload and assess the effects o ...
