  2. Enhancing the Usability of an Intersection Collision Avoidance Simulation Method

    SBC: Rioux Engineering            Topic: 03FH2

    The TEXAS Model for Intersection Traffic is a high-quality single-intersection microscopic traffic simulation model developed at The University of Texas at Austin. It analyzes in sub microscopic detail the behavior of driver-vehicle units as they go through an intersection and intermix with other traffic flows. It has detailed intersection geometry, path following, microscopic car following, lan ...

  3. Rapid enzyme-based assays to detect banned substances in food


    It is important to test the food supply for known toxic or banned substances which can impinge public safety. While a number of high-throughput tests have been developed to screen the food supply for higher molecular weight banned substances, it has been difficult to develop methods to comprehensively screen the food supply for low molecular weight banned substances such as histamine or pentachlor ...

  5. Engineered Wodd Chip Composite Erosion Control Material

    SBC: Restoration Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Erosion control Best Management Practices (BMPs) have been developed for many situations, including building construction, highway construction, and stormwater management. As increasing awareness of the costs of erosion has occurred (soil loss, damage, water quality degradation) the number of erosion control materials available has increased. Restoration Technologies has worked with its collaborat ...

  6. Instrumentation for Measurement of Hydrogen Sulfide Concentrations and Emissions in Animal Manure Management Systems

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Significant emissions of environmentally important gases result from manure management systems associated with animal production. Confined livestock and poultry operations are identified as important sources of emissions that are of environmental concern on spatial scales ranging from local to regional, national, and global. Hydrogen sulfide is one such gas. Existing detection methods for measurem ...

  7. Optical Ethylene Analyzer for Food Crop Quality Assurance

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Improved production yield is a constant objective of increasingly sophisticated agricultural practices. As Earth's population grows, higher yield is a critical mechanism for insuring adequate food supply. An effective way to increase yield is by reducing waste. Crops react to stressors by releasing ethylene at low levels. If these levels can be detected, stressors may be mitigated before crop viab ...

  8. Isotope Ratiometer for Groundwater Analysis

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sufficient and safe water resources are the foundation of a society. With growing Earth population the protection of the limited resources becomes more challenging. Scientific assessment of groundwater vulnerability to depletion and pollution is required for optimized water-use and for intensification of crop production systems with the aim to achieve a sustainable agriculture. Isotope hydrology p ...

  10. Lactoferrin Enhances Growth and Reduces Nosocomial Infection in Preterm Infants

    SBC: AGENNIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project aims to develop talactoferrin (TLF, recombinant human lactoferrin) as a therapeutic agent to treat prematurely born neonates. The treatment will be given orally shortly after birth to prevent nosocomial inf ections (NIs) due to abnormal bacterial invasion of neonatal intestinal epithelia and consequently to limit systemic bacteremia and necrotizing ...
