  1. Disposable Micromachined Flow Immunoassay for Field Detection of Contaminants

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The use of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect contaminants such as solvents, fuels, and pesticides in soil and water samples is now well established. Although ELISA and related methods can facilitate analysis of samples, several washing and separation steps are involved that require 30 to 120 minutes per sample to reach equilibrium. Recently, near infrared fluorescence immunoassa ...

  2. Phytoremediation of TNT-Contaminated Soils Using Plants Selected by a Four-Step Screening Procedure

    SBC: Phytokinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project involves the development of a phytoremediation technology for the cleanup of TNT-contaminated soils at the Volunteer Army Ammunition Plant (VAAP) in Chattanooga, TN (an upland site). Phytoremediation, the use of plants to clean up contaminated environments, has a great potential for soils contaminated with TNT. Recent discoveries suggest that intrinsic plant enzymes (not micr ...

  3. Energy Neutral VOC Oxidation Using a Fluorite-Catalyst/Compact Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N/A

    The need to reduce ozone in urban areas has led to increased regulation for the control of the ozone precursors¿namely volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides. However, current control technologies, such as incineration and adsorption on solids, have a number of disadvantages for the wide range of VOC-emitting industries. Catalysts provide an alternative control strategy. Recent ...

  4. An Innovative Photocatalytic Process for Silver Recovery

    SBC: Wangtec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The photographic industry consumes about 70 million troy ounces of silver annually. The technology used to recover the silver from concentrated solution is more than 40 years old. However, investigators project that, based on industry experience, as much as 20% of this silver is lost in the wash water and goes unrecovered. The toxicity of silver in the effluent is a growing concern in the United ...

  6. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...

  7. Parallel Optical Memory Interconnects

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, we describe a novel approach for realizing a parallel, nonmechical, read/write interconnection for angle-multiplexed three-dimensional (3-D) optical memories. Our concept represents a significant first step required toward taking this critical memory technology from the laboratory and inserting it into operational systems. The concept utilizes novel optomechanical packaging and ...

  8. Representation and Transmission of Non-Visual Stimuli Using the HLA

    SBC: Mystech Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This effort will develop an HLA compliant representation of non-visual stimuli with the intention of utilizing the models developed in Phase I effort to provide data for "human" mannequin stimulation in Phase II. The Phase II goal is to have the mannequin respon in a physiologically realistic manner to the non-visual stimuli data that will be passed to it over a network and via an interface. Suc ...

  9. Commercialization of C4I Simulation Components for Disaster Planning and Recovery Using HLA

    SBC: Mystech Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Federal, state, local, and military missions for Disaster Relief, Emergency Action, and Humanitarian Assistance (DREAHA) require all of the traditional command, control, communications, computer and intelligence (C4I) functions used by military units for traditional warfare. New civilian systems that leverage and reuse military C4I systems to plan, prepare, identify, vector, monitor, and recover ...

  10. A New Liquid Crystal Detector for Underwater Acoustic/Optical Imaging

    SBC: SANTEC SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    A new liquid crystal based detector (acousto-optic sensor) will be developed for operation at frequencies below 500kHkz. The superior acoustic detection sensitivity of the sensor will be demonstrated and its feasibility for providing efficient and cost-effective means of acousto-optic image conversion in underwater acoustic imaging systems will be established.
