  1. Honey Bee Fast Response System for Broad Band Detection of Airborne Toxicants.

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A03160

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project is to develop a broad band detection system for air toxicity. Our overall objective is to show that honey bee orientation and locomotor behaviors can be used as reliable and measurable indicators of certain airborne toxicants. Locomotor sufficiency and directional orientation are behaviors that should unambiguously indicate toxicant exposu ...

  2. Honey Bee Fast Response System for Broad Band Detection of Airborne Toxicants.

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A03160

    This project's objective is to develop honey bee colonies as broad band, wide area detectors of airborne toxicants. Phase I focused on identifying behavioral endpoints that assess the locomotor and task solving performance of 'exposed' foragers returning to the hive. Preliminary results indicate that speed of maze navigation and recognition of 'exposed' foragers by entrance guard bees hold prom ...

  3. Biofilm Restoration for Contaminated Army Sites

    SBC: CENTER FOR INNNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Many Unites States Army, and other Department of Defense (DoD) sites, are contaminated with a variety of contaminants including highly energetic compounds, such as 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), chlorinated aliphatics (such as trichloroethylene,TCE) and chlorinated aromatics. These compounds often persist in soil or groundwater for extended periods of t ...

  6. Innovative Manufacturing Techniques for Polysaccharide-Protein Conjugate Vaccines

    SBC: ENDOBIOLOGICS INTERNATIONAL CORP.            Topic: A03167

    This project develops a conjugate vaccine against Shigella flexneri 2a utilizing cGMP-compatible manufacturing processes. The antigenic component of the vaccine is deacylated-polysaccharide from the bacterial LPS that has an average of one O-antigen repeat unit per polysaccharide molecule. The polysaccharide is deacylated by a biological process, and has a core structure with intact phophosphory ...

  7. Innovative Manufacturing Techniques for Polysaccharide-Protein Conjugate Vaccines

    SBC: ENDOBIOLOGICS INTERNATIONAL CORP.            Topic: A03167

    There is need for a commercial vaccine against shigellosis because all groups of pathogenic Shigella have acquired resistance to antibiotics. Shigella conjugate vaccines have proven safe and protective in previous clinical trials, but obstacles associated with large-scale manufacturing of these subunit vaccines have apparently hindered commercial development. The present project uses a new and s ...

  8. Automated Wafer Polishing for Epi-ready CdZnTe Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A03124

    MCT grown on CdZnTe substrates is the dominant material for infrared photon detectors. However, the technology for polishing CdZnTe substrates to the quality demanded by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) does not currently exist in the United States. EPIR Technologies proposes to develop a technology for substrate polishing by (1) creating an advanced chemical polishing procedure for CdZnTe (2) creatin ...

  9. Membraneless Microchannel Fuel Cells

    SBC: INI POWER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ARMY03T10

    Fuel cross-over still remains one of the major technical obstacles in the commercializaion of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). The objective of this Phase II STTR proposal is to take advantage of multi-stream parallel laminar flow within microchannels to elminate fuel crossover within a laminar flow fuel cell (LFFC). LFFC performance is expected to outpace tradional PEM-based DMFCs and provid ...

  10. Optimization of Strain-Balanced Heterostructures for High Power 4-5 Micron Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A04T012

    In order to extract the full potential of quantum cascade laser technology, a heterostructure with a large conduction band offset is required in order to minimize thermal leakage associated with high average power operating conditions. Strain-balanced heterostructures, based on GaInAs/ AlInAs/ InP, exist which are predicted to allow efficient laser operation in the 3-5 micron wavelength region. ...
