  3. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  5. Filovirus drug discovery using novel combinations of approved drugs

    SBC: APATH, LLC            Topic: CBD05119

    The goal of this proposal is find novel combinations of approved drugs for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with filoviruses. Ebola and Marburg viruses, the only filoviruses, cause an acute hemorrhagic fever syndrome which has a high mortality rate and poses a significant bio-terrorism threat. There are currently no therapeutic agents available to treat filovirus infections and the de ...

  6. Handheld Photoacoustic Chemical Agent and Toxic Industrial Material Detector

    SBC: MANNING APPLIED TECHNOLOGY            Topic: CBD05112

    Manning Applied Technology proposes to develop a handheld infrared spectrometer, ideally suited to detection of airborne chemical agents at and below permissible exposure limits. This approach offers unmatched sensitivity and specificity for detection of all types of chemical vapors. The instrument is modular, rugged, compact and highly sensitive. Volume pricing will be less than $1000 each. ...

  7. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  8. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...

  9. MAXIMIZING ANAEROBIC SLUDGE SIGESTION RATE BY USING FIXED FILM SYSTEM

    SBC: Inc.ubator Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO EVALUATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF EMPLOYING A FIXED FILM ANAEROBIC DIGESTER SYSTEM TO ACHIEVE AN ADEQUATE DEGREE OF BIOLOGICAL SLUDGE DIGESTION WITH A RETENTION TIME WHICH IS ONE ORDER OFMAGNITUDE SHORTER THAN THAT OF THE CONVENTIONAL SUSPENDED- GROWTH DIGESTER. IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE THE BIOLOGICAL REACTION RATE, THE INFLUENT SLUDGE WILL BE TREATED WIT ...

  10. "MITIGATION OF ACID RAIN AND OXIDANT IMPACTS ON CROPS AND FORESTS UTILIZING MARINE EXTRACTS"

    SBC: Maricultura Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ASSESSMENTS ESTIMATE U.S. CROP LOSSES FROM ELEVATED OZONE LEVEL AND OTHER OXIDANTS (SULFUR DIOXIDE, NITROGEN DIOXIDE) TO BE AS MUCH AS $5 BILLION ANNUALLY. ADDITIONALLY,SEVERE FOREST DAMAGE MAY RESULT FROMPOLLUTION-RELATED OXI- DANTS PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATICDECLINE IN FOREST ECOSYSTEMS OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS. THIS RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT THE MITIGATION OF SUCH ...
