  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 ...

  7. User-Friendly Fluorescent Field Test for Pesticides

    SBC: CHEMMOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR program, a novel, user-friendly field sensor strip for the detection of pesticides will be developed. Based upon a multi-layer design to create a highly visible fluorescence upon exposure, it is non-instrumental, single-use test strip that can be deployed and interpreted in an easy and straightforward manner. Upon exposure to organophosphorus pesticides in water, a fluorescenc ...

  8. Hydrodynamic Pressure Processing Using the Safe, High-Output Tenderizer

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is a low-cost, high-throughput, meat processing technology that substantially improves meat tenderness while killing bacteria. Based upon a developmental concept known as hydrodynamic pressure processing (HDP), the proposed innovation will use intense, underwater shock waves to significantly improve the tenderness of boneless cuts beef, pork and poultry. A ...

  9. NBC Personnel Cooling Suit

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Aspen Systems proposes to develop a small portable personal cooling system that may be used by the Special Operations Forces with or without NBC protective clothing. The approach proposed will rely on our miniature refrigeration technology previouslydeveloped. Our rotary compressor, developed to provide 300 Watts of cooling will be scaled up to meet the SOCOM requirements of 500 Watts. Technic ...

  10. Sympathetic Detonation Underwater

    SBC: Idolon Technologies            Topic: N/A

    "The requirement for an underwater sympathetic detonation detector arises from the need to provide a reliable trigger signal under all conditions. The object of the Phase 2 is to transition from the current laboratory proof-of-principle brassboard to asystem that can be integrated into the existing SYDET hardware and that has low power/energy requirements. The aim of the proposed program is to bui ...
