  1. Development of a Volatile Antibiotic Producing Fungus for Control of Soil-borne and Postharvest Diseases

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agriculture is in need of safer products to replace methyl bromide and other synthetic pesticides. Soil-borne diseases caused by Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Verticillium and Phytophthora are a major problem in horticulture, field crop production and greenhouses causing root rots, wilts and loss of vigor and yield. Methyl bromide, a potent ozone-depleting agent being phased out by 2005, is frequently use ...

  2. General Purpose Pheromone Releaser

    SBC: Med-e-cell            Topic: N/A

    The release of pheromones(chemicals produced by insects) has become an important method to monitor and manage insect populations. Unfortunately, current pheromone releasing technologies are inadequate for entomologists to control large-scale infestations. Southern pine beetles,alone,cause economic losses in excess of $ 200 millions, annually, in the U.S. Spruce beetle infestations have impacted mo ...

  3. Kinetic Fireball

    SBC: AGENTAI, INC.            Topic: AF02166

    The objective of the proposed project is to demonstrate the feasibility and military utility of employing a BLU-109 penetrator munition filled with an optimized load of Kinetic Fireball Incendiaries to neutralize biological and chemical agents that are stored in hardened bunkers. These innovative, self-propelled Fireballs, based on state-of-the art solid rocket propellant, are also capable of cau ...

  4. Laser-Based Sensors for Monitoring Livestock Ammonia Emissions

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The total global anthropogenic ammonia air emissions are estimated to be 43 million tons per year, with animal agriculture responsible for more than any other source and comprising approximately 50% of the total. The majority of ammonia emissions come from livestock operations, especially Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) like large dairies, poultry and swine operations, and cattle fe ...

  5. Magneto-Thermal MRAM


    Magneto-Thermal MRAM uses both heat and magnetic field (current)to overcome thermal instabilities of very small memory cells. Self-generated heat in the cell raises the temperature of magnetic material in the cell above the exchange ordering temperature of the magnetic material (either ferromagnetic or anti-ferromagnetic). Magneto-Thermal MRAM is compatible with advances in photolithography down t ...

  6. Natural Fly Repellant for Livestock

    SBC: STRATACOR            Topic: N/A

    Insects, ticks and mites cost US livestock producers in excess of $3 billion annually. Existing treatments, based on pyrethroids and organophosphates, have only weak repellent activity, permitting the annoyance of landing insects. Furthermore, the toxic effects of these compounds to flies has diminished due to tolerance. We will develop a natural insect repellent for livestock to curb insect-relat ...
