  2. Crack Arrest and Structural Repair of High Strength Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructural Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: 07PH1

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest / structural repair technology as a novel crack arrestor tool for high-strength pipelines. The crack arrestor would comprise a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nanocrystalline material applied to the outside of the pipe either in the coating mill during fabrication or in-field during or following constru ...

  3. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  4. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  5. Structural Repair of Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructured Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest/structural repair technology as a novel in-field pipeline repair tool. The repair would be comprised of a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nancrystalline material applied to the damaged region of the pipe in order to utilize the "crack filling" characteristic of the process. The concept proposed has alr ...

  6. Development of a blood test for breast cancer detection

    SBC: INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGIES AND SRVCS INTRNTL            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mammography is the benchmark for breast disease detection and diagnosis. However, it can miss 10-15% of early stage breast cancers, and it is unable to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions with certainty. Av ailability of an alternate method e.g. biomarker based, which allows early detection/precise distinction between benign disease and breast canc ...

  7. Novel Inhibitors of Latent Epstein Barr Virus Infection

    SBC: Vironika, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The product that will result from this SBIR program, proposed by Vironika and its consortium partner, The Wistar Institute, is a new (the first) small molecule drug candidate for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latent infection, and its associated pathologies. EBV is a prevalent human herpesvirus that has been classified by the World Health Organization as a human car ...

  8. Sphingosine Kinase Inhibitors as Anti-Arthritis Agents

    SBC: Apogee Biotechnology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sphingolipids are being increasingly recognized as key mediators of inflammatory cascades of critical importance in multiple diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Most importantly, sphingosine 1-phosphate produced by sphingosine kinase (SK) mediates the effects of tumor necrosis factor-1 and interleukin-12, pro-inflammatory cytokines ...

  9. ZigBee-Based System for Rapid and Efficient Communication and Emergency Response

    SBC: Touchtown Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fast and effective communication is the key to minimizing confusion, anxiety, and casualties both during and after a public health emergency. The ability of emergency services personnel to relay clear instructions, part icularly to vulnerable populations, results in better understanding of the situation by the population and faster compliance with these instruc ...

  10. A Modulator of Innate Immunity for Preventing Hospital-Acquired Infections

    SBC: THERIMUNEX PHARMACEUTICALS, INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The product that will result from this proposal will be a potent biological regulator of innate immunity, 1- peptidyl-2,3-diacylglyceride (PDAG), for use in the prevention of hospital-acquired (nosocomial) infections in highly-susceptible patient populations. Nosocomial infection is a rapidly growing cause of morbidity and mortality in U.S. hospitals and nosoc ...
