  1. PRODUCTION OF SECONDARY METABOLITES OF AZADIRACHTA INDICA IN TISSUE CULTURES

    SBC: Agridyne Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING A TISSUE CULTURE SYSTEM FOR THE NEEM TREE, AZADIRACHTA INDICA, TO PROVIDE A SOURCE OF PURE SECONDARY METABOLITES. THE BEST KNOWN PRODUCT OF THE NEEM TREE IS THE INSECTICIDE, AZADIRACHTIN. THE EFFECTIVENESS AND EXTREME LOW TOXICITY OF THIS COMPOUND HAVE EARNED IT A REPUTATION AS THE BEST BIOPESTICIDE AVAILABLE. AS HARD CHEMICALS ARE BEING REMOVED FROM THE LIST OF EPA A ...

  2. Signal Processing/Automation for Cardiac Output Monitor

    SBC: Axon Medical Inc            Topic: N/A

    Thermal dilution is by far the most common method of measuring cardiac output. Over onemillion thermodilution pulmonary artery catheters are used each year in the U.S. We have appliedartificial neural networks to improve the accuracy of the thermal dilution cardiac output measurementand allow using small injectate volumes (2 ml). We will build an automated system using a modifiedsyringe pump and a ...

  3. A High Specific Energy Bipolar Silver/Zinc Battery Using a Novel Iightweight Bipolar Electrode

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    An improved silver/zinc battery is a leading candidate for many applications requiring both high specific power and high specific energy. The silver and zinc electrodes offer important advantages over alternate electrode materials, such as equivalent weight and favorable kinetics. Silver/zinc batteries have seen application in systems such as torpedoes,satellites, underwater vehicles, aircraft,and ...

  4. The Development of a High Specific Energy, Secondary Solid State, Thin-Film, Li202/Li Battery

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    A lithium peroxide/lithium battery has a theoretical specific energy of 2569 W.hr/kg, far higher than any secondary battery available or under development. A solid-state, thin-film version of this battery has been an area of research for several years and is proposed for development. The electrolyte used is based on polyethylene oxide, and is a conductor of Li+ ions. The cathode is a composite of ...

  5. AN ADAPTIVE SELF-SCANNING TACTILE SENSOR WITH COMPUTATIONAL CAPABILITIES

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    TACTILE SENSORS ARE A CLASS OF ROBOTIC SENSORS CAPABLE OF MEASURING CONTACT INTERACTION BETWEEN A ROBOTIC GRIPPER AND A GRASPED OBJECT. THE USE OF TACTILE SENSORS WILL GREATLY ENHANCE THE USE OF UNMANNED VEHICLES OR ROBOTICS IN BOTH THE MILITARY AND CIVILIAN SECTORS BY MAKING ROBOTS MORE ABLE TO DEAL WITH UNCERTAINTY IN THE ENVIRONMENT. CURRENTLY, THE USE OF TACTILE SENSORS IN REALTIME CONTROL A ...

  7. A HIGH TEMPERATURE THERMAL FIELD-FLOW FRACTIONATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Fffractionation, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH TEMPERATURE, ULTRA-HIGH MW POLYMERIC MATERIALS ARE BEING INCREASINGLY USED IN INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS. SUCH INDUSTRIES AS THE AUTOMOBILE, ELECTRONICS, BIOTECHNOLOGY, AND LIFE-SCIENCES ARE EXPLOITING THESE ADVANCED MATERIALS DUE TO THEIR HIGH-MECHANICAL STRENGTH AND TEMPERATURE-RESISTANT PROPERTIES. HOWEVER, THE CURRENT TECHNOLOGY FOR MW CHARACTERIZATION OF THIS CLASS OF COMPOUNDS IS UNRELIA ...

  8. FLUID BED COMBUSTOR COMPLIANCE COAL PRODUCTION

    SBC: Gf Activation Technologies            Topic: N/A

    MANY LOW RANK COALS (ESPECIALLY LIGNITES) HAVE ONLY MARGINALLY HIGH SULFUR CONTENTS, RESULTING IN EMISSIONS OF 2 TO 3 POUNDS OF SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) PER MILLION BTU. THIS SULFUR IS PRESENT IN ABOUT EQUAL AMOUNTS OF PYRITIC, SULFATIC, AND ORGANIC SULFUR. THEREFORE, PHYSICAL CLEANING METHODS ARE TYPICALLY NOT APPLICABLE. HOWEVER, THESE COALS HAVE HIGH OXYGEN CONTENTS, AND MUCH OF THIS OXYGEN IS P ...

  10. Laminated Object Manufacturing of an Extremely-Tough Layered Ceramic Matrix Composite

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    The transition of DOD developed technologies into the commercial market is needed to maintain a strong advanced materials industry. Cost is the primary consideration in the commercial market. Therefore, manufacturing processes are needed to produce components from advanced materials that are affordable and competitive on a cost basis with current materials. Lone Peak Engineering (LPE) proposes to ...
