  1. Low Cost Fuels Production from Agricultural Wastes Using Chemical Regeneration

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Bioconversion of lignocellulosic wastes to fuels and chemicals requires pretreatment to enhance conversion and reduce overall costs. Texas A&M University (TAMU) has tested a lime pretreatment process that is effective and low-cost. A significant element of the pretreatment cost is the lime regeneration system. To reduce costs, Altex has identified the Low Cost Lime Regenerator (LCLR). The LCLR is ...

    SBIR Phase I 1998 Department of Agriculture


    Aquaculture is increasing at an annual rate of 20% and has become a $1 billion industry in the U.S. that provides more than 25% of our seafood supplies. Due to limited water supplies, future aquaculture development will probably involve closed systems in which the culture water is treated and recycled. Current recycling technologies are based on industrial waste treatment methods, but aquaculture ...

    SBC: SANGAMO BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Zinc finger proteins (ZFPs) of the C2-H2 class are DNA-binding proteins that are ubiquitous in nature. By modifying the amino acids of the recognition helices according to a recently devised recognition code, ZFP's can be designed to bind DNA sequences of choice. This development has made possible the construction of chimeric transcription repressors and activators for regulating genes in plants. ...

  7. Low Cost Pocket Stove Operating on Military Logistics Fuels

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A simple and Low-Cost Pocket Stove (LCPS) concept has been identified by Altex that can be fired on diesel or JP8 fuel. The stove provides 2,000 Btu/hr heating capacity, weighs less than 2 ounces and is projected to cost $3.00. The stove can be used by soldiers to heat water. Also, the concept can be applied to other small heat driven military devices. Under the Phase I feasibility effort, a p ...

  8. Millimeter-Wave Navigation & Reconnaissance Sensor

    SBC: CHANG INDUSTRY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A low-cost, sub-beamwidth resolution 94GHz passive radiometric imager for navigation and reconnaissance is proposed. An innovative array structure with a fast scanning high efficiency antenna will be mounted to a low-flying aircraft. High performance and potentially very low cost heterodyne detection techniques will be used. Analysis of the sensor for navigation purposes has been conducted. Op ...

  9. GeoTIFF 2.0- A JPL Innovative GIS Tool for the Manipulation and Conversion of Multi-Scale Nested Geographic Datasets

    SBC: DUBBS & SEVERINO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Through Army STTR Phase I and Phase II efforts, a flexible image manipulation architecture has been created and fielded based on the GeoTIFF version 1.0 format. This global commercial standard allows the display of vector, raster and matrix datasets in both 2D moving map systems and 3D real time perspective fly-through displays. The architecture is currently fielded in a JSOC Phase III productio ...

  10. Toward the Molecular Imprinting of Nerve Agents: Development of a Detoxifying Towelette

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Human skin exposed to a liquid nerve agent, such as sarin, must be decontaminated immediately (within one minute) to avoid fatality. Intelligent Optical Systems proposes a decontamination towelette containing a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) that mimics the binding characteristics of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. The cost, shelf life, and storage conditions of a disposable towelette are i ...
