  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  3. Digital SQUID Array for Portable Low-Field MRI System for Combat Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H18

    Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring very long averaging times to obtain reasonable spatial resolution. The use of large arrays of SQUIDs wo ...

  4. Medical Modeling and Simulation Based Training Return on Investment Decision Model

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: OSD11H19

    Many studies exist which validate M & S based medical training tools as effective in improving practitioner performance. There is little research addressing the cost effectiveness of such training solutions. A gap exists in the integration of cost, performance, schedule, risk, patient outcome improvement, and training efficiency and training transfer factors in assessing medical M & S based train ...

  5. Q-Track Milk Operations Optimization System

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: 83

    Automated milking systems make dairy operations more efficient and less stressful for animals and farmers alike. However when a problem occurs, a suspect animal must be found and diagnosed quickly. This effort aims to evaluate the feasibility of a Q-Track Milk Operations Optimization (Q-MOO) system. The proposed Q-MOO system will employ a novel, low-frequency real-time location system (RTLS) that ...

  6. Math&Science Problem Solving Intervention for Rural Communities

    SBC: LEARNIMATION            Topic: 86

    A technically literate workforce, capable of math and science problem solving, is essential in order to attract and maintain high-tech industry and manufacturing within rural counties. Math and science intervention in problem solving has been shown to facilitate peak performance and to engage students in math, science and technology for the longer term, however, access to the instructional materia ...

  7. Engineered Comestible Meat

    SBC: MODERN MEADOW            Topic: 85

    Present farm and industrial meat production methods and technologies have a number of associated problems including health risks (infectious animal diseases, nutrition-related diseases), resource intensity (land, water, energy), damage to environment (green house gas emission, erosion, biodiversity loss) and ethical challenges (animal welfare). With increasing worldwide demand for meat, it is expe ...

  8. Developing a grower-centric online software prototype to enable vegetable producers to collect accurate and timely crop harvest information

    SBC: AgSquared LLC            Topic: 813

    Consumers are now demanding more information about farm production processes and their resulting harvests. Harvest records, although difficult for farmers to capture, can contain rich product data such as grading information and macro and micronutrient content, allowing farmers to differentiate themselves from competitors and market their produce effectively, as in organic farming. Harvest records ...

  9. Research and Development to improve Recruitment and Retention in Rural Emergency Medicine Using Mobile Simulation

    SBC: HUDSON SIMULATION SERVICE, LLC            Topic: 86

    Nationwide, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) plays a crucial health care role in the well-being of rural populations. There are substantial challenges within the rural EMS system including: high costs for providing EMS care to sparsely populated regions; fewer tax dollars to fund health programs and trouble with providing public services. In addition, rural regions have difficulties with increasin ...

  10. Enhancing Biosynthesis of Biofuels from Cellulosic Biomass

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    There continues to be a need for production of biofuels from agricultural sources. Butanol is a more attractive fuel than ethanol because it leads to better gas mileage, it achieves higher blends with gasoline than bioethanol, it has greater compatibility with existing fuel infrastructure, it is less volatile, it is more amenable to transport via pipeline due to low water absorption, there is no n ...
