  1. Combined Cleaning and Guided Wave Inspection System for Hazardous Liquid Pipelines

    SBC: ULC Robotics, Inc.            Topic: 180PH2

    Pipeline operators employ cleaning tools for improving product throughput, inhibiting corrosion, and preparing their pipes for inline inspection. For many pipeline risk models, improving the scope and quality of input data is a long-term process. If the combined cost of pigging and inspecting was low and could be done simultaneously, pipeline operators would be encouraged to perform inspections mo ...

  2. Biphase Extended Release Tablet Formulation for Nerve Agent Pretreatment

    SBC: Zymeron Corporation            Topic: CBD181004

    Nerve agents exert their toxic effect by binding to and inactivating enzyme acetylcholinesterase, a key enzymatic regulator of cholinergic neurotransmission. The binding becomes irreversible after a varying amount of time with nerve agents and this aging process limits the treatment window of oxime reactivators. To enhance the current antidote treatment of nerve agent autoinjectors, a pyridostigmi ...

  3. A Next Generation, High-Precision, Field Drug Detection System

    SBC: SensoDX II, LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    The synthetic opioids fentanyl and carfentanil pose an imminent national security threat, given the ease with which they can be obtained, their low lethal doses, and their potential for weaponized use. The purpose of this agreement is to adapt SensoDx’s high-performance miniaturized diagnostics platform based on a programmable bio-nano-chip, with embedded artificial intelligence, to enable U.S. ...

  4. Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System (IDEAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 111FH3

    International Electronic Machines (IEM) Corp. will develop the Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alerting System, or IDEAS.  In Phase I, IEM will examine two different approaches for achieving the goal of accurate, reliable dimensioning and classification of moving vehicles at highway speeds.  IDEAS will leverage prior work by IEM for the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), New York State

  5. Smart Grade Crossing Monitor System

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR2

    During Phase I, IEM developed a proof of concept for a Smart Grade Crossing Monitor (SGCM) using multispectral imaging technology for enhanced monitoring of highway rail grade crossings to improve safety by providing warnings of significant objects present in the crossing. The Phase I work conclusively demonstrated that multispectral imaging is clearly superior to visible or infrared spectrum imag ...

  6. Solar Roadways

    SBC: SOLAR ROADWAYS INCORPORATED            Topic: 091FH5

    As stated in the solicitation, the pavement infrastructure in the US covers a large surface area and requires intensive energy and natural resources. In addition, the surface of the pavement is typically impermeable, causing negative consequences. Vehicles that travel over these pavements are also resource intensive. Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with m ...

  7. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  8. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  9. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  10. OPTICAL POLARIZATION BASED TAMPER-PROOF DRIVER'S LICENSE AND IDENTIFICATION CARDS

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF FALSE DRIVER'S LICENSES AND OTHER IDENTIFICATION CARDS TO OBTAIN ALCOHOL BY UNDER- AGE DRIVERS AND BY REPEAT OFFENDERS WITH SUSPENDED LICENSES IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM. ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY SUCH DRIVERS ARE MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS TO FATALITIES, INJURIES AND PROPERTY DAMAGE. THEDEVELOPMENT OF TAMPER-PROOF DRIVERS' LICENSES AND IDENTIFICATION CARDS WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THIS PROBLEM. DUE TO HI ...
