  1. An Array-Based Sensor for the Detection of Toxic Industrial Materials

    SBC: IDAHO TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Development of single use, freeze-dried PCR reagents for use with the Idaho Technology Ruggedized Advanced Pathogen Identification Device (RAPIDT system) or other commercially available real-time PCR devices is proposed. These reagents will have extendedstability at ambient temperature thus allowing sensitive PCR methods to be used in non-laboratory environments for the rapid detection of biologi ...

  2. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  3. Autonomous, Unattended, Reagentless Biological Agent Detector

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD05111

    The goal of this project is to investigate the feasability of a unique sampling method that will lead to the development of a reagentless infrared (IR) based BW agent detection system. The current JPBDS uses lateral flow immunoassay technology as the final step in detecting bioagents, and has a detection limit of 10^5 spores/ml[ref 1]. Preliminary data from our infrared approach indicates a mini ...

  4. Bio-Inspired Dry Adhesives

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: CBD09102

    The proposed project will develop bio-inspired adhesives for reliable and convenient sealing of full-facepiece respiratory masks against skin. Conventional pressure-sensitive adhesives rely on a liquid-like fluidity to establish molecular-scale contact against rough surfaces. While this contact mechanism limits their versatility and stability, they exhibit desirable long-range deformations which b ...

  5. Detection of"active"biological toxins by exploiting native binding specificities

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: CBD14101

    A chemical threat agent mode of action is often initiated through a selective interaction with a biological molecule or structure. The agent binding mimics normal cellular processes, but then overruns natural control mechanisms leading to toxic and even lethal effects. The binding may be used as a basis for sensing the agent. By exploiting the native binding mechanism, a sensing element can be des ...

  6. Deve;opment of A Handheld Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: FEMTOSCAN CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to develop new technology on the basis of existing commercial technology can offer significant cost savings when compared to research programs to develop new technology from scratch. Continuing developments in mass spectrometry (MS), vacuum Systems and high speed gas chromatography (GC) sampling and analysis methods, have created an opportunity to fully demonstrate a powerful handporta ...

  7. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...

  8. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  9. Durable Aerosol and Liquid Repellent coatings

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: CBD161002

    Chemical and biological (CB) warfare agents are a serious threat to our soldiers and national security. Different warfare agents and microbes may be delivered using solids (powders, particulates, ice crystals), hydrosols (air borne liquid droplets), or aerosols (air-born particulates). Solids, hydrosols, or aerosols can penetrate, accumulate, and transport through both porous and non-porous surfac ...

  10. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...
