  1. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  2. Model-Based Design of Test Systems for Chemical Protective Clothing

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD02202

    The current methodology for testing the penetration resistance of textile materials to various chemical agents has a number of drawbacks, including significant uncertainties in the resulting data, inefficiency and expense, risk to test personnel, and limited range of test conditions. The objective of the proposed work is to apply unique computer models for textiles with accompanying experimental ...

  3. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  4. Enhancement of Early Development in Turkeys by in Ovo Feeding

    SBC: Embrex            Topic: N/A

    Approximately 5% of hatchlings do not survive the critical post-hatch period because of limited body reserves. Many survivors exhibit stunted growth, leg problems, inefficient feed utilization, reduced disease resistance, or poor meat yield. This poult quality problem has been calculated to be worth approximately $71 million and $142 million annually to the US and global turkey industry respective ...

  5. Developing Medicinally Used Echinacea Cultivars by Intra- and Interspecific Hybridization- Phase II

    SBC: Gaia Herbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cultivation of Echinacea has gained worldwide interest in recent years due to its non-specific immunomodulatory activity in humans. However, Echinacea species have not been genetically improved for medicinal use. This project is to develop genetically improved Echinacea cultivars for medicinal use. The new cultivars will produce higher yield of biomass and bioactive phytochemicals than the types c ...

  6. Evaluating Oosporein and Its Analogs from the Mycoparasite Aphanocladium album for Managing Rust Diseases

    SBC: PhytoMyco Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Low molecular weight metabolites produced by the rust mycoparasite, Aphanocladium album, can convert infective urediniospores to non-infective teliospores. The teliospore-inducing factor (TIF) has been isolated, identified and demonstrated in proof-of concept experiments to convert infective urediniospores to non-infective teliospores of the oat rust fungus, Puccinia coronata. During Phase II, we ...

  7. An Ultra-Sensitive Detector for On-Line Measurement of Volatile Molecules Produced by Diseased Potato Tubers

    SBC: Remote Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    It has been well established that disease in stored potatoes and many other vegetables and fruits generate a variety of volatile compounds that are released into the storage space Furthermore, specific types of disease produce volatile compounds that generate unique fingerprints on ultra-sensitive spectrographic molecular detection devices. The background atmosphere of commercial storage facilitie ...

  8. Energy-Scavenging Animal Telemetry Device

    SBC: TENXSYS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current animal telemetry devices are large and heavy due to their reliance on batteris to power the electronics and radios. Because of this, many species can't be effectively studied since they can not support the device weight. The smaller size will allow animal telemetry devices to be developed for species that have not had effective monitoring devices previously. The longer duration devices wil ...

  9. Small Crawler Tractor for Wildland Fire Suppression and Management

    SBC: TNC-2 Industries, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project will develop and demonstrate two Small Crawler Tractor (SCT2) prototypes for wildland fire suppression and management activities. Phase 1 successfully demonstrated the feasibility of using the Phase 1 unit (SCT1) for these applications. The SCT2 will have more power, weight, traction and rollover stability to meet requirements identified in Phase 1. However, it will be small a ...

  10. Automating Production of a Modified Blow-Fill-Seal Applicator Unit-Dose Vial

    SBC: Unicep Packaging, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bonner and Boundary Counties, Idaho, are rural areas in transition. The people in these areas currently rely on increasingly fewer timber and forestry jobs as well as low-paying, seasonal tourist industry positions. The purpose of this project is to foster critically needed economic development in a chronically depressed rural region by leveraging and expanding technology-based entrepreneurial act ...
