  1. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Langrangian pH and pCO2 drifter aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in the world’s oceans. ...

  2. Advanced Locomotive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 121FR3

    At present, trains use various dissipative braking systems to slow and stop, and this significant braking energy is ultimately converted to heat and wasted. APEI, Inc. has proposed a hybrid tender which can capture and reuse a significant fraction of this braking energy (at least 50%). The hybrid tender draws power from the rails using a regenerative braking technique rather than by being electr ...

  3. Environmentally Friendly Low Friction Coating for Concrete Barriers

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 121FH1

    Resodyn Corporation is proposing a material and application system that will create a low friction coating on concrete median barriers. The advanced material developed for the low friction coating is an affordable, tough, weather resistant, and environmentally friendly copolymer. The proposed application concept is for truck mounted equipment that enables a single pass application of the coating ...

  4. ElectroDynamic Shield for Prevention of Optical Surface Contamination

    SBC: Poly Adaptive LLC            Topic: 122FR2

    The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program uses optical systems such as cameras or laser-based systems to monitor rail performance throughout the country. These systems are hindered by adverse weather conditions that allow water, dirt and mud to coat their optical components resulting in unwanted maintenance costs. Thus FRA is seeking a low-cost, practical s ...

  6. Whole-brain fluorescence and brightfield imaging at single-cell level

    SBC: DMetrix, Inc            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop an open and flexible imaging platform capable of rapid, 0.5- 5 m pixel resolution image capture of large-area histology sections (up to 125 mm by 175 mm), in brightfield and by epi-fluorescence optical sectioning. The project involves state-of-the- art instrumentation development coupled with application programming inter ...

  7. Development of NMUR2 Antagonists as Novel Analgesics

    SBC: OMEROS CORPORATION            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pain affects over 100 million Americans annually. Opioids are the primary drugs that can treat pain. However, these drugs produce severe and unwanted side effects, such as respiratory depression, nausea, constipation and tolerance development (Berde et al, 2008); in addition, they are highly addictive (Koob et al, 1998). There is clearly a large, unmet need for ...

  8. Computerized Stage-Matched Intervention for Juvenile Offenders

    SBC: Pro-Change Behavior Systems Inc            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Juvenile crime imposes enormous costs on victims, on society, and on juvenile offenders themselves. However, research assessing the efficacy of interventions for young offenders show, on average, only small effects on recidivism, substance abuse, and other behavioral outcomes. A major problem with existing interventions is that they tend to neglect individual d ...

  9. Overcoming Tramadol Resistance In CYP2D6 Poor Metabolizers

    SBC: Syntrix Biosystems, Inc.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tramadol is a widely prescribed analgesic, with over 25 million prescriptions and 565 million in retail sales in 2009, making it among the best selling generic drugs. One of the advantages of tramadol over traditionalopioids is its lower risk of opioid dependence, resulting in it having an unscheduled status in the U.S. and other countries. Although its mode ...
