  2. In-Field Detection Kit for Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    Intelligent Optical Systems will develop an accurate, inexpensive, rapid, and quantitative device for the detection of harmful algal bloom toxins and toxigenic organisms. The device will be ideally suited for field use, and will provide information about multiple toxins in less than a few minutes. This portable device will obviate the need for laborious, time-consuming, and expensive laboratory ...

  3. A Submersible Video Recorder for Marine Biological Surveys

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 8113

    We propose research to develop and demonstrate a deeply submersible video plankton recording system (ViPR) to perform image recording of plankton. The ViPR will apply artificial intelligence to 2-D or 3-D imaging using pattern recognition for a statistically reliable survey of plankton using two cameras, one for larger zooplankton and the other for microplankton. The ViPR computer will be PC compl ...

  4. Low Power Multibeam Echo Sounder for Small AUVs

    SBC: RD INSTRUMENTS            Topic: 843

    This Phase I proposal is to establish the technical feasibility of developing a low-power multibeam echo sounder for small AUVs for hydrographic survey applications. The proposed approach will leverage innovative electronics, signal processing, and transducer design techniques with modern industrial and RDI-developed technologies to provide a system, which meets the technical requirements for the ...

  5. Multipath Reducing GPS Receiver and Antenna

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to design an improved GPS receiver and GPS antenna to reduce installation-dependent errors due to multipath. To develop the receiver, we will prototype and implement various interference cancellation algorithms on a software-defined radio simulation toolkit and hardware testbed. We will design an antenna complementary to this receiver that will suppress signals ...

  8. High throughput assay for small G protein activation

    SBC: ACTIVE MOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The small GTP binding protein superfamily (consisting of small, monomeric GTP hydrolyzing proteins or GTPases) regulates diverse cellular processes including gene expression, cellular proliferation, cytoskeletal reorganization, vesicle trafficking, and nucleocytoplasmic transport. Activated point mutants of Ras GTPases have been found in over 30% of all human ...

  9. Drug discovery of anti-ADDL therapeutics for Alzheimer's

    SBC: Acumen Pharmaceuticals, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent evidence suggests that the primary cause of Alzheimer's disease is the progressive accumulation of neurotpxic oligomeric assemblies of the Abeta 1-42 protein. These neurotoxic oligomeric species are known as ADDLs (Ab-derived diffusible ligands). In Tg2576 AD mice, a transgenic Alzheimer's disease animal model, memory performance declines as ADDL levels ...

  10. Biomarker for Alzheimer's Related Cognitive Deficits

    SBC: Acumen Pharmaceuticals, Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The molecular and cellular details underlying Alzheimer's disease (AD) are being defined at an accelerating pace, leading to new therapeutic discovery efforts that target reduction of A-beta or ADDLs (A-beta-derived diffusible ligands), the neurotoxic oligomeric assemblies of A-beta 1-42. Elevated ADDL levels correlate with synaptic dysfunction, and the appear ...
