  1. Collection of Motorcycle Exposure and Crash Factor Data

    SBC: Autonomous Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous Innovations Inc. (AII) proposes to develop a novel comprehensive monitoring system for motorcycles that will monitor vehicle miles traveled (VMT), as well as a varity of physical measurements, to understand the exposure and factors in the increased numbers of accidents among motorcycles riders. All has extensive experience in developing and integrating sensors and data-logging for a va ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Alzheimer's Disease Drugs

    SBC: QUATROS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Brain accumulation of amyloid-2 (A2) and chronic brain inflammation are both recognized factors in the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Brain inflammation primarily involves microglial cells. The neural toxi city of A2 is microglia-mediated and involves signaling through transcription factor NF:B. Limiting the activation of NF:B in microglia may be ...

  7. Anti-cancer Drig Sensitizers

    SBC: QUATROS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): One aspect of conventional chemotherapy that often results in failure is the development of drug resistance through increased efficiency by the cancer cell in pumping drugs out of the cell, which is an energy requiring process. Many cancer cells, including breast cancer cells, have converted to aerobic glycolysis as the main source of ATP energy, suggesting th ...

  8. Improving Biopsies using Magnetic Nanoparticles

    SBC: SENIOR SCIENTIFIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In children with acute lymphomatic leukemia (ALL) and in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with older patients it is extremely important to measure the minimal residual disease (MRD) to monitor the progress of chemotherapy at early stages Such measurements determine the prognosis, efficacy, and levels of the treatment. The normal method for detection and monitori ...

  9. Fast-Track:Biomagnetic In-vivo Imaging of Ovarian Cancer

    SBC: SENIOR SCIENTIFIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A novel method for applying nanotechnology to the early detection, localization and potential treatment of ovarian cancer has been developed. Recent measurements, using live ovarian cancer cell lines and the ovarian ca ncer marker CA-125, have shown that the sensitivity of this method is better than 105 cells at depths of 5 - 8 cm from the sensor. This is sign ...

  10. Spectroscopic optical cohernece tomography for intravascular imaging

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

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of this SBIR project is the development of a rapid, high resolution optical method for in vivo imaging with a specific emphasis on intravascular imaging and the identification of vulnerable plaque. The approach uses a novel harmonic detection method for optical coherence tomography (OCT) that will allow depth resolved near infrared spectr ...
