  1. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  2. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  3. 120-X-2 Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric & Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensing

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 84

    To capture critical weather and SST data in the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer (TCBL), Piasecki Aircraft proposes to evaluate existing meteorological sensor packages, integrate new off-the-shelf MEMS sensors, and design an air-launched UAS to improve the resolution of observations captured in the TCBL. Capturing latent and sensible heat fluxes can be achieved reliably with a powered UAS (compare ...

  4. Low-Noise, High-Efficiency Geiger Photodiode for Quantum Cryptography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mechanics of single photons can be used to entangle information carry quantum states, allowing for quantum computation or random number generation. Quantum communication utilizes the quantum nature of single-photons to retain information, particularly in the form of quantum key distribution protocols. High-efficiency, low-noise single photon detection at high efficiency is critical for the app ...

  5. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  6. Promoting Regular Physical Activity for Older Adults through "Wayfinding" Technology

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical vulnerability, visual impairment, mobility limitations, and cognitive disorders can make selecting a safe & accessible walking route very challenging for many older adults. Familiar online mapping & wayfinding services can be helpful, but they do not answer important questions about the built environment that older & disabled adult face on a daily basis. What are the sidewalks like alon ...

  7. CLIA-waived Point of Care Test of Infection by Cocci, Blasto, and Histo

    SBC: LUCIGEN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection causes more cases of congenital disease than 29 currently screened conditions in the US combined & several newborn screening disorders in EU countries. Congenital CMV infection rate is 0.7% in developed countries with 18% of infected newborns developing permanent hearing & vision loss, or intellectual disability (5,000 in the US each year). Ninety percent of ...

  8. Quality-Related eMeasures from EHR Data

    SBC: Commonwealth Informatics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To assess the readiness of EHR systems to support this new capability by constructing prototype eMeasure software, interfaced to at least one EHR system, that implements the chlamydia screening rate eMeasure based on HEDIS specifications for the numerator and denominator. Success in Plase I will support a Phase II activity to extend the prototype to additional EHR systems and additional existing a ...

  9. Lab research for the development of human anti-diphtheria Mabs in CHO cells

    SBC: Anatagen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Monoclonal anitbodies (Mab) have been used successfully for treating human diseases. However, conventional Mabs are derived from mouse. Injection of murine Mabs into humans will cause adverse effects. The development of human Mabs against diphtheria could offer a commercially viable alternative to equine antitoxin for treating human diphtheria with a number of potential advantages including hig ...

  10. Development of Gap Junction Inhibition Therapy for Alcoholic Liver Disease

    SBC: HEPROTECH, INC.            Topic: NIAAA

    ? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alcoholic liver disease is a highly prevalent and costly condition affecting millions of people globally. Alcohol results in high morbidity and mortality an is responsible for nearly 4% of all deaths worldwide. Despite the tremendous societal and economic burden, there is no approved therapeutics for alcoholic liver disease. Instead, the standard of care ...
