  1. High Performance Signal Processing Tools with Fluctuation-Enhanced Sensing

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: 9020163R

    We propose a high performance library of signal processing tools that incorporate a newly developed technique known as fluctuation enhanced sensing (FES) to enhance the novel microsensor developed at NIST. Our goal is to improve the performance of the NIST sensor from two angles. One is to apply our existing proven algorithms to the NIST data. The other one is to incorporate advanced FES concept t ...

  2. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  3. Enhanced Security Content Automation Protocol Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: 9040577R

    G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome ...

  4. TELEPHONE TECHNOLOGY AND RURAL TOURISM DEVELOPMENT: ROMANCING THE METRO TOURIST

    SBC: Associated Enterprises Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NATIONAL ATTENTION HAS REFOCUSED ON FINDING NEW ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES TO HELP RURAL ECONOMIES. RURAL TOURISM CAN REVITALIZE THESE ECONOMIES BUT IS HINDERED BY POOR RURAL INFRASTRUCTURE, ISOLATION, POOR ACCESS TO RESOURCE INFORMATION, AND INSUFFICIENT PROMOTION FUNDS. TELESONIC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AND TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF INTRODUCING A UNIQUE MULTIMEDIA TELEPHONE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM TO ...

  6. ACOUSTIC VOLUMETER FOR THE RAPID ESTIMATION OF THE FAT CONTENT OF AN ANIMAL

    SBC: Hydronautics Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO PREDICT THE FAT CONTENT OF LIVE ANIMALS DESIGNED FOR FOOD. SUCH KNOWLEDGE MAY BE USED TO GUIDE DIET REGIMENS, BREEDING AND SELECTION PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO PRODUCE A LEANER PRODUCT. ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN METHODS OF ESTIMATING THE FAT FRACTION IS BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT OF TOTAL BODY DENSITY (WEIGHT/VOLUME). THE METHOD IS NOT USED IN PRACTICE BECAUSE THE VOLUME MEASUREM ...

  8. CHARACTERISTICS OF OYSTER RACK STRUCTURES IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY

    SBC: World's End Aquaculture Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NATIVE OYSTER PRODUCTION AND POPULATION HAVE FALLEN DRAMATICALLY IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY. THE PUBLIC FISHERY HAS BEEN DECIMATED BY DISEASE WHILE THE PRIVATE CULTURISTS HAVE BEEN BURDENED BY A RIGID LEGAL AND SOCIAL FRAMEWORK. A METHOD OF PRODUCTION WHICH UTILIZES THE EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE PUBLIC FISHERY AND THE DISEASE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES OF THE PRIVATE CULTURISTS NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED. T ...

  9. Novel Solar Concentrator Trough with Front-side Support Structure

    SBC: Invention House, LLC            Topic: 86

    Invention House LLC proposes to lower the initial cost of solar energy by minimizing the material used in the reflector of a concentrating trough. Placing the support structure on the front (sun) side and using a thin reflecting membrane will reduce material usage and cost by approximately 66%. The system is capable of producing boiling hot water for use in grain drying, food processing, and steri ...

  10. Development of phage preparation for managing Salmonella in foods

    SBC: Intralytix Inc            Topic: 85

    Our project envisions developing a bacteriophage-based product, designated SalmoShield, for eliminating or significantly reducing contamination of poultry products (and eventually other foods) with Salmonella. Salmonellae continue to be one of the leading causes of foodborne disease worldwide, causing 1.3-1.4 million cases of salmonellosis annually in the USA, with associated costs estimated to be ...
