  1. Quantitative Risk Management using Bayesian Networks

    SBC: Open Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Since 9-11, the U.S. has been more vulnerable to diffuse threats. In response to the growing threat of terrorism's attack on CI/KR and all kinds of natural and/or manmade disasters, the U.S. government must adopt more effective risk management to remediate risks and mitigate the consequence of risks. A risk is defined as a function of the likelihood of a given threat exploiting a particular vulner ...

  2. Flexible, Auto-configuring, Sensor, Transmission Web (FASTWeb)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro Inc., WPI, is proposing to develop a Miniature Netted Sensor (MNS) system - a modular sensor web system that aggregates sensor data to detect, track, and classify targets. Our solution combines aggregate data analysis, ultra-low power, low-bandwidth wireless networking with energy-efficient routing protocols. The MNS system consists of the following components: A) Modular wireless se ...

  3. BreakOut

    SBC: Words and Numbers            Topic: N/A

    Words & Numbers, a small business located in Baltimore, MD, proposes to publicize research conducted at the DHS Centers of Excellence while improving K through 12 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education in the United States, through the development, publication, and distribution of a highly engaging, gradeappropriate program of videos, magazines, and an accompanying Web site. T ...

  4. Cold Cathode Radiation Sources

    SBC: STELLARRAY INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Flat panel X-ray Sources (FPXS) use cold cathode arrays lithographically formed on the exit window to emit hundred of thousands of e-beams towards a broad X-ray target. The X-rays thus generated emit out past the cathode arrays and the exit window. Since the X-ray flux is generated across a wide area it can be directed locally and directly towards objects to be sterilized, such as blo ...

  5. 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 ...

  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. Multiple Indication Adjuvants

    SBC: BIOPROTECTION SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: CBD08105

    The objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy and broad applicability of the human immune-modulating alphaGal Adjuvant Technology for antiviral vaccine development. We will use viral vaccine candidates for the select Category A viral pathogens Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV, filovirus), Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV, bunyavirus), and Lassa virus (LV, arenavirus), to evaluate the adjuvant pot ...

  9. Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) Permeable Encapsulating Agents for Effective Delivery of CNS-active Agents

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD08107

    Drug transport in the central nervous system is highly regulated by the Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB). Most medicines, including many for treating cancer, Alzheimer’s, and stroke, do not meet essential criteria, such as lipophilicity and low molecular weight, required for appreciable transport into the brain. However, endogenous peptides, such as insulin or transferrin, and certain monoclonal anti ...

  10. Sequential Isoelectric Point Separation of Proteins Using Non-Gel, Microfluidic System

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD08101

    The measurement of biochemical changes within the human body can provide a means to monitor a person’s physiological health. Many of the biochemicals that provide a snapshot of a person’s health are proteins. The challenge with measuring proteins is the existence of approximately ten orders of magnitude difference in concentration between the most abundant proteins in blood and those typically ...
