  1. Demonstrate the Feabibility of Building an AWIPS-Based System Grid with Weather Ontonology Capabilities

    SBC: Fairfield Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The AWIPS (Advanced Weather Information Processing System) program is a cornerstone element supporting NWS' mission to protect life and property and enhance the national economy. The challenge of this project is to help NWS harness large amounts of unused computer resources and underutilized data, improve collaboration and cooperation to solve complex problems not currently addressable, to increas ...

  2. Low-Cost Night Vision System for High-Speed Vessel Operations

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    On this program, we will design, fabricate and test of a novel wide field-of-view night-vision system for use by coxswains and crewmembers during night intercepts. The system is capable of providing the visual acuity, depth perception and situational awareness necessary for high-speed boat maneuvers and allows the operator to see the sea state at night, safely maneuver a high-speedboat and pursue ...

  3. Intrinsic Distributed Fiber Optic Leak Detection

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: N/A

    Monitoring and inspection of pipelines are essential for optimal operation of the energy infrastructure of the nation. However, methods that are currently used for pipeline inspection and diagnostics are typically either slow, do not provide high spatial resolution, suffer from excessive false-alarms, or are not real-time. Development of a system for the real-time monitoring of pipelines to dete ...

  4. A2a Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This is a phase I SBIR proposal by Adenosine Therapeutics for 6 months of support to synthesize and evaluate novel compounds as agonists of equine A2A adenosine receptors. Some of these compounds have been found to be very effective in reducing rodent mortality form endotoxin or from E. coli-induced sepsis. Circulating endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide) is correlated with the pr ...

  5. An Automated Fish Migration Pattern Monitoring System Using Shape Descriptors for Pattern Recognition

    SBC: Agris-Schoen Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fish ecology and environmental research scientists have an urgent need for an automated fish recognition system for monitoring fish migration patterns. Many fish species are known to travel for great distances during their life cycle. As they travel past dams equipped with a fish passage, their species, size, total number, and the time are recorded for migration pattern stud ...

  6. Peer-to-Peer VolP Link for Radio Interoperability, Fire Management, and Security


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Wildfires could cost the US $2 billion in 2002, as over 6 million acres and 650 structures have burned. Eighteen people have died. Fire fighters require instant verbal exchanges with state, tribal, military, National Guard, and local public safety organizations that provide the initial response to 90% of wildfires. Unfortunately, USFS radios cannot talk directly with radios ...

  7. Allelic Ladders for Standardization of STR Genotyping of White-Tailed Deer

    SBC: DNA SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci consist of short, repetitive sequence elements ranging from 2 to 5 base pairs (bp) in length distributed throughout mammalian genomes (microsatellites). STR genotypes can be determined from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products of less 500 bp using relatively degraded DNA templates. STR fragments of discrete lengths are detected by electroph ...

  8. Phytoremediation Using Underemployed Agricultural Assets

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Acknowledging the problems of drought and low farm prices, the United States Government has authorized more than $20 billion per year in farm aid to boost farm incomes, encourage conservation, and buy crop and livestock insurance. At the same time, millions of acres of the country are contaminated with heavy metals and organic pollutants that are expensive to remove using tr ...

  9. Nutrient Utilization Patterns (NUP) for Determining Sources of E. coli and Enterococci in Water

    SBC: MapTech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fecal contamination of water is widespread in the United States, and of particular concern to the animal-agriculture community. Accurate, timely, and cost-effective methods of identifying fecal sources are critical to correcting these contamination problems. Current methods of Bacterial Source Tracking (BST) include both molecular and non-molecular techniques. While non-mole ...

  10. Polymeric Amplification for Rapid L. Monocytogenes Detection

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Current state-of-the-art inspection procedures for ready-to-eat food is time-intensive, requiring processors to delay distribution and maintain extra storage facilities or to distribute the food and face the risk of an expensive recall and associated damage to the company's reputation. Productization of the successful prototype detection system will be particularly beneficia ...
