  1. Cyclone Collection system for Radionuclide Detection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA182006

    The detection of radionuclide aerosols is a critical indicator of a nuclear detonation. Existing sensors as part of the International Monitoring System operate in a batch process and typically have a 48 to 72 hour delay between aerosol sample collection and measurement activities due to limits of instrument sensitivity. The continuous, instantaneous measurements of atmospheric aerosol radiation le ...

  4. Captive Reproduction, Hatchery Research and Production of Endothermic Pacific Bluefin Tuna Juveniles:Toward Responsible Pacific Bluefin Tuna Mariculture in the United States

    SBC: Ichthus Unlimited, LLC            Topic: 87

    Tuna ranching is dependent on wild-captured fish and the current operational model is largely unsustainable as it increases fishing pressure on the Pacific bluefin tuna (PBFT) wild stock. Recent ISC (International Scientific Committee for Tuna and Tuna-like Species in the North Pacific Ocean) assessments indicate that this stock is "alarmingly overfished", while experiencing high exploitation rate ...

  5. Broadly protective porcine Streptococcus suis vaccines

    SBC: PATHOVACS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Non-technical SummaryCurrently, there are no efficacious vaccines to protect piglets against disease caused by the emerging zoonotic (transmissible from animals to humans) pathogen, Streptococcus suis. Porcine S. suis disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in weaned piglets and is a significant economic burden on pork producers globally. Losses to the pig industry globally are in the ...

  6. STEM lesson creation coaching framework to improve the pedagogy of K-5 teachers implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    High-quality schools positively influence the economic development prospects in rural areas by attracting business and industry to the area and producing the educated labor force that is needed to sustain economic growth. The greatest source of a highly educated population in rural areas is native individuals who attended college locally or who return home after completing their education elsewher ...

  7. Mill Development Model Development and Testing

    SBC: Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, LLC            Topic: 86

    INRS and MDP will collaborate to build an analytical model that demonstrates the probability of success - and opportunities for enhancement - for the redevelopment of idled industrial assets. This model will be developed and refined using the former pulp and paper mill in Old Town, ME., and data supplied by multiple redevelopment efforts elsewhere in the State of Maine. Based upon learnings and ex ...

  8. Customizable Science Informational Texts to Support K-5 Teachers Implementing the Common Core and NGSS

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Today's elementary teachers must address the needs of an increasingly diverse population of students--ranging from those who enter their classrooms reading at many years below grade level to those who are many years above grade level. This discrepancy is often the most profound in rural school districts. This impacts teachers' abilities to help students acquire strong skills in reading--fo ...

  9. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  10. Identification of Black Cattle that Resist Salmonella

    SBC: PSR DAIRYGENETICS, L.L.C.            Topic: 83

    The long-term goal of this research is to improve food safety and animal well being by promoting Salmonella-resistant beef cattle. Salmonella is increasingly prevalent in hamburger because this bacteria can infiltrate small tissues of the immune that are unavoidably ground into hamburger. The specific objective of this particular application is to develop a test that identifies black cattle bearin ...
