  1. Prototype Application of Mobile, Cloud-based, Watson-Like Technologies for TBI/PTSD Clinical Decision Support and Predictive Analytics

    SBC: SENTIMETRIX, INC.            Topic: DHP12005

    We propose the development of a computational foundation for the understanding, prediction, and shaping of online social phenomena by bringing together, for the first time, multimodal content understanding, social network structure understanding and social network event understanding, together with the ability to predict multi-stage events. In other words, we will track the nature of the content b ...

  2. AgiTube: A Device for Preventing Retained Hemothorax

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: DHP16011

    In recent military engagements, thoracic injuries occurred in nearly 10% of wounded US personnel and are a primary or contributing factor in up to 75% of all civilian trauma-related deaths. Hemothorax, an accumulation of blood in the pleural space, is a common, life threatening result of chest trauma. While the majority of traumatic hemothoraces are managed by tube thoracostomy alone, in many case ...

  3. Severe Trauma Female Simulation Training System

    SBC: OPERATIVE EXPERIENCE, INC.            Topic: DHP16002

    The training of combat medics in Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) has focused principally on the treatment of male casualties. A recent change of policy, lifting the ban on women serving in combat arms makes it likely that the number of women serving in combat roles will increase in the foreseeable future. The risk of female wounding and death will rise as well. For unknown reasons, female cas ...

  5. Enhanced Membranes For Sweetening Of Manure Based Biogas

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Each year over 1 billion tons of animal manure is produced in US and it can be a pollution source if not handled properly. "Anaerobic digestion" is an energy efficient way to dispose manure. Through this process manure is converted to biogas and digestate. The manure digestate can be used as fertilizer. Biogas is a mixture of ~60% CH4, ~40% CO2 and trace amounts of contaminant gasses such as H2S. ...

  6. Enhanced Membranes for Dewatering of Black Liquor

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    Compact Membrane Systems (CMS) proposes to employ membrane systems for pressure-driven separation of water from black liquor to replace the first two stages of existing multiple-effect evaporators. This is a promising approach to considerably reduce the steam energy required for concentration. Membrane materials must withstand high temperature, high salinity and high pH conditions. Fouling of the ...

  7. Testing feasibility and scalability of a new engineered design of an aerated static pile composting system.

    SBC: Compost Plant, L3C, The            Topic: 86

    Food waste is a significant and complex problem for the United States. Americans generate over 250 million (short) tons of trash a year, and organic materials such as paper and paperboard, yard trimmings, and food waste continue to make up a large component of the waste stream. These organic materials collectively account for a significant portion of U.S. methane emissions, as organic waste produc ...

  8. Transparent Wood Composites for Energy Efficiency Applications

    SBC: Inventwood LLC            Topic: 81

    Energy used for lighting and thermal comfort contributes to more than 50% of the total energy consumption in residential and commercial buildings. Consequently, conserving air conditioning and lighting usage especially during daytime can yield substantial savings. Effective and consistent sunlight harvesting can substantially reduce electrical usage while promoting natural and comfortable indoor l ...

  9. Non-Thermal Pasteurization of Tree Nuts to Reduce Microbes and Mycotoxins

    SBC: NanoGuard Technologies, LLC            Topic: 85

    Non-thermal pasteurization using High Voltage Atmospheric Cold Plasma (HVACP) is expected to reduce mycotoxins and microorganisms on tree nuts resulting in reduced incidences of food-borne illness. Non?thermal pasteurization of food products using HVACP is a novel platform technology which addresses several NIFA National Challenge Areas. These include: 1) Global food security and hunger by increas ...

  10. Development of RNA interference-based product for Red Imported Fire Ant (Solenopsis invicta Buren) control.

    SBC: APSE, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Fire ants cause about $7 billion dollars of damage in the United States annually. Fire ants infest some 367 million acres in the United States and their range expands every year. Since the geographical range offire ant infestationis limited by temperature and rainfall, the rising global temperatureisforecasted to lead tosignificant range expansion.Fire ants cause damage to electrical equipment, de ...
