  1. Handheld Microfluidic Device for Cyanobacteria Toxin Detection and Monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    HJ Science & Technology, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of an integrated“lab-on-a-chip” technology capable of rapid and real time detection and identification of a variety of toxins in drinking water, particularly microcystins and other toxins produced by cyanobacteria. During blooms, the toxins in freshwater become concentrated enough to be a serious concern for ahuman heal ...

  2. Development of Pathway Selective Cells and Assays for Sensitive Detection of Environmental Toxicants via High Throughput Label-free Cell Based Screening

    SBC: ACEA Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: B

    Environmental pollutants that impact critical biological pathways involved in human development and physiology can have unpredictable effect on health. Among these critical pathways, various receptor tyrosine kinases, sonic hedgehog, transforming growth factor beta, Notch and WNT are known or suspected mediators of the effect of numerous environmental toxicants produced during manufacturing, pres ...

  3. Soy-Capped Polycarbonate Dendrimers for Tough, Sustainable Water Based Wood Coatings

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: B

    The environmental impact of wood coatings has become a pressing issue as the manufacturing of wooden products such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture and doors is moving back to the United States amidst rising labor costs overseas. For the last thirty years the bulk of these products have been painted in countries with lax environmental regulations, allowing the use of inexpensive but environmenta ...

  4. Ultralow Power CO2 Sensor for Intelligent Building Controls

    SBC: KWJ Engineering Incorporated            Topic: C

    The proposed EPA SBIR Phase I program will create a novel ultra low power and low cost microfabricated CO2 sensor. The initial developments of sensor technology will serve the very large Demand Controlled Ventilation market that has been identified by KWJ and its collaborators. Phase I is dedicated to design, fabrication and testing of the innovative system consisting of a unique MEMS sensor, di ...

  5. 3D Breast Tissue Co-cultures for Screening Mammary Carcinogens

    SBC: REGENEMED, INC.            Topic: B

    Breast cancer is not a disease of individual cells, but principally a failure of cells and tissues to communicate properly. One communication mechanism that is frequently disrupted in breast cancer involves the hormone estrogen. Despite recognition that exposure to compounds with estrogenic activity can promote breast cancer formation and progression, no good mechanistic explanation presently ex ...

  6. Automated Monitoring of Wastewater Treatment Efficiency

    SBC: Verrix, LLC            Topic: D

    Wastewater treatments minimize transmission of pathogens, and are required by the EPA with established treatment and monitoring requirements. The efficiency of treatment processes is determined by measuring the inactivation of indicator organisms (e.g., fecal coliforms) with culture-based techniques. Recently, Clostridium perfringens spores have been identified as excellent indicator organisms t ...

  7. Aeroacoustic Analysis

    SBC: Cmsoft, Inc.            Topic: AF083267

    ABSTRACT:The reduction of aerodynamic/hydrodynamic noise caused by violent turbulence is of strategic importance to many military systems. These include modern fighter jets, unmanned weapons with sensitive electronics, and surface and underwater vessels. For all these systems, aerodynamic or hydrodynamic noise can produce unacceptable levels of operational loads or acoustic vibrations, or be detri ...

  8. Integrated Fast-light Micro-inertial Sensors for GPS Denied Navigation

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF131065

    ABSTRACT: The ability to maintain precision navigation without periodic position updates from external sensors such as GPS is challenging. One particularly challenging scenario is navigation for transonic through hypersonic weapon systems and UAVs. The flight dynamics and operational environment of medium / high altitude platforms limit the availability and precision of traditional non-GPS positi ...

  9. Vibration Measurement Methodology to Correct Aero-Optics Measurements

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: MetroLaser proposes a test and evaluation methodology to optimize the information return of aero-optic wind tunnel tests, which are corrupted by mechanical vibration. The aero-optic and vibration effects are added and to separate them it would be necessary to accurately measure the effect of vibration on the overall signal. The proposed technology includes measuring the vibration of ind ...

  10. Low Level Signal Detection for Passive Electro-Optical Space-based Surveillance

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corporation and the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) are proposing development and feasibility demonstration of advanced algorithms for the detection of vibration signatures in scattered light. The algorithms are being developed for applications including space-based electro-optical (EO)/infrared (IR) sensing at high frame rates and extremely low signal-to-n ...
