  1. Development of a Sensitive, Autonomous Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Detector for Ammonia

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

    The USDA recognizes the need for improved instrumentation to monitor atmospheric ammonia which is a major environmental concern and a health hazard. Ammonia is a public health concern at high levels, as can be found in animal feed lots. At low levels, ammonia is a source of particulates which are not only a human health problem but also affect visibility and global climate. It has been estimated t ...

  2. Advanced Development of a Low-Cost, Handheld Electrochemical Ethylene Monitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ethylene is a plant hormone that is involved in regulating various aspects of plant growth and development such as seed dormancy, seedling growth, root and stem thickening, promotion of flowering, and promotion of fruit ripening and spoilage. Measurement of ethylene is important for developing a basic understanding of these processes, as well as for utilization in advanced agricultural practices. ...

  3. Bioactive Food Components as Activators of Human SIRT1; Development of Caloric Restriction-mimetic Therapeutics Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

    SBC: Sirtris Pharmaceuticals            Topic: N/A

    Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. There are currently 18 million patients in North America and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Disease (NIDDK) estimates that approximately 800,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone. In 2002 the direct costs of T2D were estimated to be $92 billion (up from $44 billion in ...

  4. Renewable Electric Energy Source for Special Operations Force (SOF) Maritime Combatant Craft

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05001

    An electric power source is needed that is two-man portable or lighter, operates on logistics fuels (JP-8, diesel), is quiet, and has a low thermal signature. We propose the MICE (Miniature Internal Combustion Engine) generator that is currently being developed by Aerodyne Research to deliver 500 W electrical power using logistics fuels. The design for this MICE generator will weigh less than 16 ...

  5. Tactical Body Worn RF Antenna Vest

    SBC: MEGAWAVE CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM01007

    This Phase II proposal addresses the design, development, fabrication and test of a wideband body worn antenna for threat warning and Direction Finding. This effort will build on Phase I results and tailor/optimize the antenna’s performance for the DF environment, by building a detailed electromagnetic computer model of the antenna. The performance of the antenna will be demonstrated at the pr ...

  6. Fuel Cell Quiet Auxiliary Power Unit for Special Ops

    SBC: PROTONEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05001

    Protonex will develop a quiet, durable, high-energy source which is able to power auxiliary electrical equipment for SOCOM operations. It must be able to withstand a harsh operational environment and be lightweight, compact and man portable. Protonex proposes to develop a quiet Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) that will meet all the energy, power and other requirements for this application. This syst ...
