  1. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  2. Food Toxicity Detection Using C. elegans

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: OSD09H24

    Current toxicity testing of foodstuffs involves mass spectrometry analysis which requires a>24 h turnaround time in deployed military operations. This length of time is dangerous for personnel. Rapid identification of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) in food using a sensor that is biologically-based and easy to use eliminates that danger and would provide exactly what is needed for toxicity eva ...

  3. Self-Regulating Anesthesia/Analgesia Device Using Automated Fresh Gas Flow to Deliver Inhaled Agents

    SBC: MEDICAL CONSERVATION DEVICES, LLC            Topic: OSD10H05

    The control of pain, anxiety, discomfort, and the sequellae of injury and illness is an over-arching healthcare issue in both military and civilian settings. Current strategies for pain relief, sedation and anesthesia involve infusion of intravenous agen

  4. Encapsulated Earthworm Cocoon (eggs) Viability Studies for Sustainable Soil Management

    SBC: Advanced Biotechnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our assertion is that intensive tillage methods have destroyed the viability of our croplands over the last one half century. In order to maintain the ability of these lands to grow crops, we have used and over-used chemical fertilizers which pose an ongoing environmental threat to our air and waterways. The benefits of conservation tillage methods are widely known, however the time to successfull ...

  5. Performance of Innovative Native Seed Harvester

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Every year natural and man-caused disturbances (wildfire, construction of highways and facilities, mining, noxious weeds infestation, and overgrazing) damage and destroy millions of hectares of native vegetation. These vast disturbances require restoration and federal entities emphasize the use of native plant materials. Without restorative intervention, land recovery may take decades, leaving eco ...

  6. Linear Incendiary Device and Method of Prescribed Fire Ignition

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    Solutions to help overcome the present limitations in conducting prescribed burning could help land managers in their efforts to accomplish needed fuels reduction in the forests. Opportunities exist for developing improvements in the methods and materials used in the ground-based ignition of prescribed fires. Improved ignition techniques could enable managers to conduct burns at times where weathe ...

  7. Encapsulated Bentonite for Abandoned Well Sealing

    SBC: BEN-CAP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Water is the essence of life. Few will disagree that it is a resource that must be protected for the well-being of all: plant and animal. Millions of holes have been and are being drilled in the earth to search for water, uranium, oil and gas, and coal-bed methane. Many thousands of these holes are mid-depth (500-4500 feet) and fill with water if the drills penetrate one or more aquifers. When the ...

  8. Phase II: VAM-Gro: Alternative Growth Media to Promote VAM Colonization

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VAM inoculum is commonly specified for large-scale plant production contracts throughout the United States, including revegetation efforts associated with fire rehabilitation, mine reclamation, conservation plantings, contaminated site cleanup, and other activities. These activities represent a continuous expenditure of public and private funds worth several hundred-million dollars annually. A maj ...

  9. Range Tech DSS: Decision Support System for Rangeland Health Monitoring

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current systems for acquiring and accessing rangeland health data are inadequate to meet the needs of an increasingly complex management process that requires public accountability. Traditional field-based data acquisition, such as visual assessment, quadrat, and point frame methods are highly subjective, time consuming or too costly to practically apply over large land management units. While the ...

  10. A Recycling System to Convert Urban/Suburban Waste to Livestock Feed

    SBC: GREEN-AG, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    Potentially valuable livestock feed in the form of yard waste is taking up limited and costly landfill space. This project examines the viability of using these yard waste materials as a feed source for livestock.
