  1. A2a Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This is a phase I SBIR proposal by Adenosine Therapeutics for 6 months of support to synthesize and evaluate novel compounds as agonists of equine A2A adenosine receptors. Some of these compounds have been found to be very effective in reducing rodent mortality form endotoxin or from E. coli-induced sepsis. Circulating endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide) is correlated with the pr ...

  2. A CAD-Programmable Environment for Developing CBM Systems for Rotorcraft


    The objective of the Phase II research is to utilize the lessons learned from the Phase I risk reduction work to develop a prototype CAD-programmable environment for the development of condition-based maintenance systems for rotorcraft. This developmentenvironment features a CAD scenario modeler for constructing, via click n' drag modeling, fault-to-failure damage models which can account for the ...

  3. An Automated Fish Migration Pattern Monitoring System Using Shape Descriptors for Pattern Recognition

    SBC: Agris-Schoen Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fish ecology and environmental research scientists have an urgent need for an automated fish recognition system for monitoring fish migration patterns. Many fish species are known to travel for great distances during their life cycle. As they travel past dams equipped with a fish passage, their species, size, total number, and the time are recorded for migration pattern stud ...

  4. Peer-to-Peer VolP Link for Radio Interoperability, Fire Management, and Security


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Wildfires could cost the US $2 billion in 2002, as over 6 million acres and 650 structures have burned. Eighteen people have died. Fire fighters require instant verbal exchanges with state, tribal, military, National Guard, and local public safety organizations that provide the initial response to 90% of wildfires. Unfortunately, USFS radios cannot talk directly with radios ...

  5. Phase Change Materials from Fats and Oils

    SBC: ChemChar Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: A The price of fats and oils are depressed due to an over-supply created by recent increases in palm oil production. B New approaches are needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to reduce the cost of air conditioning for buildings. A This project will demonstrate the conversion of fats and oils into phase change materials typically sold at prices over $0.50 per pound. ...

  6. Allelic Ladders for Standardization of STR Genotyping of White-Tailed Deer

    SBC: DNA SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci consist of short, repetitive sequence elements ranging from 2 to 5 base pairs (bp) in length distributed throughout mammalian genomes (microsatellites). STR genotypes can be determined from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products of less 500 bp using relatively degraded DNA templates. STR fragments of discrete lengths are detected by electroph ...

  7. Phytoremediation Using Underemployed Agricultural Assets

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Acknowledging the problems of drought and low farm prices, the United States Government has authorized more than $20 billion per year in farm aid to boost farm incomes, encourage conservation, and buy crop and livestock insurance. At the same time, millions of acres of the country are contaminated with heavy metals and organic pollutants that are expensive to remove using tr ...

  8. Materials Characterization & Manufacturing Development of an Irrigation Ditch Liner System

    SBC: FastDitch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The productive use of surface water for agriculture has become a critical national and international priority as competition for water resources increasingly outpaces supply. This is demonstrated by the World Bank's investment of $3 billion a year in water projects. Small earth-lined irrigation ditches are used to deliver water from larger canals or streams directly to field ...

  9. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  10. Nutrient Utilization Patterns (NUP) for Determining Sources of E. coli and Enterococci in Water

    SBC: MapTech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fecal contamination of water is widespread in the United States, and of particular concern to the animal-agriculture community. Accurate, timely, and cost-effective methods of identifying fecal sources are critical to correcting these contamination problems. Current methods of Bacterial Source Tracking (BST) include both molecular and non-molecular techniques. While non-mole ...
