  1. Development of a Sensitive, Autonomous Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Detector for Ammonia

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

    The USDA recognizes the need for improved instrumentation to monitor atmospheric ammonia which is a major environmental concern and a health hazard. Ammonia is a public health concern at high levels, as can be found in animal feed lots. At low levels, ammonia is a source of particulates which are not only a human health problem but also affect visibility and global climate. It has been estimated t ...

  2. WirlWind (WIReLess Wide Area INciDent Network)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Problems with current radio based incident communications systems include: only VHF or UHF radio technology is used, limited number and range of frequencies, interagency cooperation hampered by incompatible frequencies and devices, terrain causes line-of-site and visibility problems for communications, potential for single point failures, geared towards voice capability, few data transmit/receive ...

  3. All Aboard: Development of Portable Watercraft Transfer Technology to Increase Access to Boating for People with Disabilities

    SBC: BLUE SKY DESIGNS INC            Topic: N/A

    Portable, accessible and affordable watercraft transfer technology will be developed so individuals with mobility impairments can more safely and easily go boating and fishing. Without transfer technology, it takes a minimum of two people to transfer someone into a boat, at considerable risk to both the person being transferred and the people lifting them. The transfer mechanism's universal design ...

  4. Advanced Development of a Low-Cost, Handheld Electrochemical Ethylene Monitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a plant hormone that is involved in regulating various aspects of plant growth and development such as seed dormancy, seedling growth, root and stem thickening, promotion of flowering, and promotion of fruit ripening and spoilage. Measurement of ethylene is important for developing a basic understanding of these processes, as well as for utilization in advanced agricultural practices. ...

  5. Bioactive Food Components as Activators of Human SIRT1; Development of Caloric Restriction-mimetic Therapeutics Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

    SBC: Sirtris Pharmaceuticals            Topic: N/A

    Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. There are currently 18 million patients in North America and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Disease (NIDDK) estimates that approximately 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone. In 2002 the direct costs of T2D were estimated to be $92 billion (up from $44 billion in ...

  6. Noninvasive Treatment of Hemorrhagic Shock

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A03178

    Shock secondary to acute blood loss remains the number one cause of death for our soldiers. Furthermore, heat shock and dehydration remain a common cause of cardiovascular collapse for our military personnel, especially as operations move increasingly into desert combat. The main objective of this proposal is to continue the development of the inspiratory impedance threshold device (ITD); an opera ...

  7. Wave Energy Harvesting to Power Unmanned Surface Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N05T021

    Recent world events have highlighted the need for timely and accurate intelligence data to assess threats and combat terror. An unmanned surface vehicle (USV ) can potentially perform intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, provide force protection, hunt for mines in coastal waters or harbors, and provide port security. USVs under development by the Navy are powered by the ...

  8. Field-Expedient Combat Load Assessment Device (CLAD)

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A05176

    Field combat load assessment for combat training and combat mission personnel load management is an identified military need. The combat load assessment device or CLAD must meet several requirements not found in off-the-shelf commercial or consumer weighing devices. Weight requirements, accuracy requirements, functional requirements, and cost requirements prohibit the use of currently OTS hardwa ...

  9. Vulnerabilty Assessment and Prioritization Methodology (VAPM)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: SB052013

    This project will develop and deploy a comprehensive force protection vulnerability analysis process that accommodates diverse and large geographic areas, public events, infrastructure interdependencies, attacker goals, means, and methods, and defender priorities. This process will be based on the Vulnerability Assessment and Prioritization Methodology (VAPM) originally developed and applied to do ...

  10. An Accurate, Efficient Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Algorithm for TAWS

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A05053

    A core process for sensor performance prediction is the radiative transport algorithm used to convert the scene environmental characteristics into radiance. Numeric approximations are often used to enhance execution time at the expense of overall radiometric accuracy. However, many radiative transfer approximations have limited applicability, working only for a set of atmospheric conditions, sen ...
