  1. Novel Vector Survaillance Trap for Flying Insects

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP12007

    Civilian and military organizations throughout the world perform surveillance to combat vector-borne disease. Of particular concern to the U.S. military are mosquito genera Anopheles, Aedes and Culex, which are important vectors for malaria, dengue and West Nile virus respectively, and sand fly genera Phlebotomus and Lutzomyia, both vectors for leishmaniasis. The trap most commonly used for by U.S ...

  2. Ear Protection Validation System

    SBC: Benson Medical Instruments Company            Topic: DHP12009

    This proposal contains the description for a hearing protection device (HPD) fit-test instrument, the CCA-200fit. The CCA-200fit has the capability to determine if an individual is receiving effective noise protection from an HPD. The CCA-200fit also has training capabilities via a display, audio, and a touchscreen which will allow it to provide instruction, feedback, and results to the individual ...

  3. A Scalable Environmental Controller with Integrated Solar Thermal Storage and Extraction for Field Protected Agriculture

    SBC: Scenic Valley Farm LLC            Topic: 812

    High Tunnels (commonly called poly tunnels or hoop houses) are a type of field protected agriculture. They are essentially an intermediary between the full environmental risk-taking of outdoor production, and the controlled conditions, and relatively high energy use, of a conventional greenhouse. There are hundreds of thousands of acres in cultivation under high tunnels across the world. Domestica ...

  4. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & amp;V) converts oxygen from the surrounding air into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate much faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches t ...

  5. A New Renewable Polymer from Bio Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    This project will develop a catalytic process to manufacture a new renewable and degradable bio-plastic that could be used to replace polyethylene in many applications, including those that constitute a large part of land and ocean litter such as bags, food packaging and disposable tableware.

  6. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    The production of turpentine in the U.S. exceeded 301,000 tons in 2004 (Romney 2004) and the production of resin acids exceeded 800,000 ton in 2003 (Romney 2004), which also includes the production from directly tapping trees (e.g., gum turpentine, gum rosin). There is growing demand for bio-plastics (non-petroleum derived polymers); for example Pepsi announced it will be using bio-plastic bottles ...

  7. Agronomic, environmental, and economic evaluation of cyanobacterial bio-fertilizer for small and mid-size farms growing high-value crops

    SBC: THIN AIR NITROGEN SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: 812

    Modern agriculture is highly dependent on nitrogen (N) fertilization to maintain high yields and profitability. In organic agriculture, cover crops and bulky organic amendments supply N; transport costs can be prohibitive, and energy used in transport is substantial. In conventional agriculture, industrial N fixation uses natural gas, high temperatures, and high pressures to convert atmospheric N ...

  8. Harnessing Clean River Energy with the RivGen Power System to Replace and Offset Diesel Fuel Use by Rural Communities

    SBC: ORPC ALASKA, LLC            Topic: 86

    This project will make hydrokinetic river energy, a completely renewable resource, into an economical source of clean power for river communities. ORPC will accomplish this by optimizing the prototype RivGen Power System design for lower speed river currents that are prvalent throughout the world. The RivGen Power System generates zero-emission electricity from river currents using no fossil fuels ...

  10. Medical Image Transmission via Low to Moderate Bandwidth Media

    SBC: High Altitude Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many rural areas and migrant populations are underserved by existing health care delivery systems but new telecommunications technologies and telemedicine networks create opportunities, in excess of $130 million, for providing improved access to information and health care for rural populations. More than twenty states and HMOs have initiated telemedicine projects for rural areas; their success i ...
