  1. Advanced Contaminant Inactivation System for Drinking Water

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: E

    "The environmental Protection Agency is soliciting innovations for the development of small unit drinking water systems that will inactivate contaminants including pesticides, organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and pathogens. In the US, 85% of all public water systems serve fewer than 3,300 people, thus these water systems are considered small. For providing these small ...

  2. Fourier Transform Infrared Phase Shift Cavity Ring Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: G

    "OPTRA proposes a Fourier transform phase shift cavity ring down spectroscopy (FT-PS-CRDS) system for high sensitivity detection of air toxic compounds. Our system operates in the 400-4000 cm-1 spectral range wherein lie vapor phase resonance bands for most air toxic compounds and hazardous chemicals; the spectral resolution is 4-16 cm-1, depending on the discrimination requirements. Our approac ...

  3. A Low-Cost Real Time Bio-Electrochemical Nitrate Sensor for Surface Water Monitoring

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: I

    "Nitrate (NO3) in surface water runoff from agriculture activities is a serious environmental problem. Nitrate levels in United States waterways have increased dramatically in the past half-century, two0fold in the Mississippi River since 1965 and as much as ten-fold in the northeast since 1990. This widespread nitrate contamination has led to significant environmental consequences. In particul ...

  4. Reduction of Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions from Commercial Kitchens

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Particulate matter (PM) and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from commercial cooking establishments are a subject of increasing concern around the globe. Although increased awareness of the health hazards of respirable particulates and VOCs has prompted the development of new technologies to reduce emissions from restaurants, current technologies do not remove all hazardous air pollutants ...

  5. Energy Efficient Ethanol Stillage Treatment using a Bio-Electrochemical System

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Reducing energy and water intensity of fuel-ethanol production is a critical national need, particularly if we are to realize the renewable fuel standards of 2010 mandating 36 million gallons of renewable fuels by 2022. Because the ethanol tolerance of yeasts used in commercial cellulosic ethanol production is around 7-9% by volume, 10-14 gallons of stillage are created for every gallon of ethano ...

  6. Helicopter Hostile Fire Indication Sensor

    SBC: Agiltron Development Corporation            Topic: SOCOM11001

    Agiltron Development Corp. will develop the world"s first affordable, reliable and accurate Helicopter Hostile Fire Indicator Sensor capable of detecting small arms through rocket propelled grenade threats using Agiltron"s unique photomechanical, uncooled infrared sensor. In phase one, Agiltron will construct a test sensor system and conduct field tests to determine detection range, accuracy and f ...

  7. Non-Toxic Obscurants and Dispersal System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06007

    SOCOM and other DOD services have urgent need for safe, non-toxic visual obscurants that can be rapidly dispersed in a battlefield or into a vehicle. These obscurants must block or disrupt all visual capability within their area of effect. The dispersion must be rapid and easy to implement by field personnel. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop a non-toxic obscurant and dispersion system c ...

  8. Low Cost and Rapid DNA-Based Biometric Device

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    Sensitive site exploitation activities are focused on collecting forensic evidence left behind by persons involved in terrorist or other illegal activity, and the biological evidence recovered is often referred to as"touch DNA samples". Touch samples include fingerprints, skin cells found on clothing (e.g. a shirt collar), and oral epithelial cells found on the opening of a soda can or the rim of ...

  9. Laser Diode Array for Multiple Pollutant Monitoring

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared tunable diode laser spectrometers provide a highly effective means of measuring trace concentrations, with either remote sensing or with advective sampling. It is often desirable to measure more than one trace gas at a time. This is especially true when gas emissions are strongly correlated, such as in combustion emissions where measuring both the CO2 concentration and another minor con ...

  10. Measurement of Biological Contamination of Water

    SBC: Maine Research and Technology Co, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) can sometimes be used as a diagnostic device in biology and medicine. In general, LIF has difficulties in relating the fluorescence spectra to the concentration of the emitters within the tissue, in identifying different species, and in the possibility of destroying the molecules being probed if the wrong excitation wavelength is chosen. Many of the problems asso ...
