  1. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  2. Hybrid System for Ultrasound Signal, Spectral, and Image Analyses to Enhance Meat Quality Evaluation in Food Animals

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: 83

    Determining meat quality attributes in food animals is essential for genetic selection, sorting, and marketing. Ultrasound techniques have the potential to benefit the swine industry for improvements in both quality and yield measures by non-destructive and non-invasive means. Biotronics, Inc. has developed and markets products for evaluation of percent intramuscular fat (% IMF) in longissimus dor ...

  3. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  4. Robotic Mass Removal of Citrus Fruits

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: 813

    Most citrus is harvested by hand. The resulting high cost in the U.S. is a burden to growers and positions them at a disadvantage to overseas competitors with low labor costs. Automated methods are needed to ensure the long-term viability and prosperity of the U.S. citrus industry. Energid Technologies proposes a new harvesting approach that combines robotic technologies with the efficiency of mas ...

  5. Electrochemical Ammonia Monitor for Agricultural Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 811

    Ammonia emissions from extensive agricultural operations such as livestock (beef, dairy, poultry, swine and horses) have gained much attention in recent years due to the adverse effects of these emissions on public health and outdoor air quality. Ammonia is considered an important pollutant due to its role as a precursor in fine particulate matter formation and its impact on ecological nitrogen ba ...

  6. Advanced Field-Deployable Monitor of Multiple Pesticides in Water

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Pesticides are among the most widely used toxic chemicals in the world, and are demonstrably dangerous to human health. Their effects can be especially widespread when pesticides enter into drinking water. There are growing demands for field-deployable devices for reliable on-site monitoring of trace pesticides in water at low ppb levels of these compounds. In proposed Phase I program, Giner, Inc. ...

  7. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Reduced-Trypsin-Inhibitor & Low Oligosaccharide Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: 85

    The current state of the art of soybean processing requires heat processing to eliminate anti-nutrition factors and make the protein available for digestion. The proposed research will investigate the opportunity to process a new soybean variety that has been traditionally bred (not genetically modified) to eliminate and/or significantly reduce these anti-nutrition factors. This research will inve ...

  8. Replicon Particle Vaccine for White Spot Syndrome Virus in Marine Shrimp

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: 87

    WSSV is the most serious disease in farmed marine shrimp causing considerable financial losses throughout the last decade across the globe. It infects a wide variety of crustacean hosts including numerous species of wild and cultured marine shrimp, crayfish, and prawns. Although a multitude of vaccination strategies have been attempted with mixed results, no viable commercial product exists on the ...

  9. Development of a High Sensitivity and Specificity Quantitative Aptamer Assay for Coldwater Disease Management Applications

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: 87

    High morbidity and mortality from infection with F. psychrophilum, the causative agent of Coldwater Disease and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) fry syndrome, have become significant problems for commercial and conservation aquaculture operations worldwide. First described in 1948 in the United States, the disease caused by this bacterium has been identified throughout North America, Europe and ...

  10. Next Generation in Detection Materials Processing

    SBC: Neotron Inc            Topic: DTRA092007

    Three nuclides are especially useful in detecting thermalized neutrons: helium-3, lithium-6 , and boron-10. Since current demand will deplete reserves of helium-3 in roughly two years, there is a large desire to develop detectors that have the capacity to replace helium-3 tubes. In this proposal we spell out our plan to adapt Neotron''s already developed fission neutron detector into a high effic ...
