  1. Buoy Atmospheric Precipitation Sampler

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: 8212

    Reliable automated collection and measurement of precipitation from moored buoys has been an elusive goal. Operation of open aperture collectors on ocean platforms is problematic, requiring constant human attention and intervention to prevent sea spray from contaminating the collected samples, and for dealing with freezing conditions in colder climates. Approaches are described that have the pot ...

  2. High Resolution Electromagnetic Imaging and Decision Support for Pipeline Life Management

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal relates to the application of electromagnetic imaging of pipelines and coatings for damage detection, condition assessment and enhanced decision support and life management. JENTEK's inductive Meandering Winding Magnetometer (MWM) sensor and MWM-Arrays have demonstrated sensitivity and resolution capability superior to conventional nondestructive examination technology in a number o ...

  3. Pilot for Rail Passenger Cab Cars

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    TIAX LLC proposes a Phase I SBIR project that will result in a preliminary conceptual design for rail passenger cab car pilots that will reduce the risk for derailment following a grade crossing collision with an automobile. Several tasks are proposed, including: a review of existing pilot designs by contacting car builders and operators; a review of grade crossing accidents; the development of ...

  4. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  6. ECM Bioscaffold for ASD Repair

    SBC: ACELL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I proposal seeks support to evaluate the feasibility of developing an extracellular matrix (ECM) biologic scaffold as a repair device for atrial septal defects (ASD). ASDs are one of the most common forms of congenital heart disease and account for approximately 30-40% of all congenital heart defects seen in adults. Closure of an ASD can be performed ...

  7. Directed Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells using Phage Displayed Ligands

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to culture human embryonic stem cells generated a great deal of excitement about their vast potential for treating a variety of human diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological, retinal and skin disorders to name a few. Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells have indefinite growth potential and the potential to develop into any t ...

  8. Clinical study of GMCI in Pancreatic Cancer

    SBC: ADVANTAGENE, INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in the US; with less than one-year median survival, it accounts for approximately 30,000 diagnoses and deaths per year. Multimodality therapy, including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, have not made a significant impact on the outcome and serve mostly as palliation. Thus, new treatment ...

  9. PET Detector for Cardiac Imaging of Small Animals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Positron emission tomography (PET) of small animals is emerging as a very powerful tool for advancing our understanding of human diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Due to the small (sub-millimeter) feature sizes, dedicated, high resolution PET systems are required to obtain sufficiently detailed images of organs of interest. In particular, sub-millimete ...

  10. High Sensitivity Pesticide and Nerve Agent Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): RMD Inc. proposes to develop direct reading, highly sensitive, reusable point sensors for detecting organophosphate and carbomate pesticide and nerve agent contamination in liquid and air. The sensors can be made for visual detection and handheld instrument readout using absorbance and fluorescence transduction modes, and will be suitable for unattended continu ...
