  1. Oligonucleotide Enzyme Surrogate (OnES)

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: CBD08108

    Historically organophosphorus compounds such as insecticides and nerve agents have been susceptible to decomposition by proteinaceous enzymes. Organophosphate hydrolases (OPH) represent a practical method to deactivate such compounds peripherally and on surfaces. However, when such organophosphates are ingested, the use of proteinaceous enzymes such as OPH can be problematic because of their tende ...

  2. Plasma Torch Synthesis of Homogeneous C-alloyed MgB2 for High-Field Applications

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 33

    MgB2 is proving to be a very promising superconductor. Until recently, the low critical field of pure MgB2 had inhibited its use for higher-field applications, such as for high energy physics experiments. Yet, recent advances have demonstrated a dramatic enhancement of the upper critical field (Hc2) when MgB2 is doped with C or SiC. However, in all cases, the resulting material typically has de ...

  3. Enhancing Homologous Recombination in Plants Through the Use of Custom Endonucleases

    SBC: Advanced Genome Technologies, Llc            Topic: 48

    Homologous recombination (HR) permits the precise insertion, deletion, or substitution of genetic material in the genome of an organism. HR offers numerous opportunities for modifying plant genomes to enhance our understanding of plant gene function and regulation, especially with respect to enhancing the production of biofuels. Although HR normally occurs at very low frequencies, approximately ...

  4. Engineered Composites for USC Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 58b

    Ultrasupercritical (USC) steam boilers will operate at higher temperature/pressure than subcritical and supercritical steam boilers in service today. However, the majority of current high-temperature materials do not posses the desired characteristics for the operating conditions of a USC unit (760 C/35MPa). This project will develop innovative composite powders and composites that will surpass th ...

  5. Carbon Nanotube-Based Filters for Aerosol Sample Collection

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD07111

    Aerosols represent one of the more efficient methods to distribute biological and chemical agents throughout the atmosphere. Small aerosol droplets can be readily inhaled and easily penetrate deep into the lungs where they lodge in bronchial alveoli. Within the alveoli, chemical and biological agents can breach epithelial and endothelial cell layers and enter the bloodstream, where they cause da ...

  6. Ribozymes for In Vivo Degradation of G-Nerve Agents

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08108

    Given the possibility to administer prophylactic doses of protein bioscavengers inactivating OP nerve agents before they reach their acetylcholinesterase target, much attention has been given to proteins such as human butyrylcholinesterase and paraoxonase I. As small nucleic acid catalysts can exhibit triphosphoesterase activities, the identification of new molecules active against nerve agents w ...

  7. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs. The overall operational weight of th ...

  8. Reducing the Effective Filament Diameter of Niobium-Tin Superconductors

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 33

    Niobium tin superconductors have had large improvements in current density over the past few years. However, the effective filament diameters of these conductors are too large, which can limit their application in areas such as High Energy Physics Colliders, Fusion Devices, and laboratory electromagnets. The filament diameter limits have been shown to be caused by fundaments limits in the cold d ...

  9. Advanced Coal Research, New CO2 Monitoring Devices

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 04b

    Scientists have proposed reducing greenhouse gas emissions by capturing combustion gases from power plants and injecting the carbon dioxide into geologic subsurface structures, where it would remain sequestered for geological periods of time. Demonstration projects are being funded by DOE to assess the storage capacity of sequestration reservoirs. Sophisticated monitoring tools are essential to ...

  10. Solar Energy, Materials Solutions for Cells and Modules

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 24c

    Electrical contacts are a critical part of photovoltaic technology. For these contacts, there is an increasing drive to develop improved processes that differ from current approaches based on physical vapor deposition (PVD) and photolithography. In particular, it would be desirable to develop solution-based atmospheric processes, which would be more cost effective, environmentally benign, and mate ...
