  1. Acoustic Propagation Analysis Program for Marine Scientists

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: 819

    People who work in the marine sciences field often need to analyze the transmission of sound through the ocean. Today, there are more than 60 different propagation loss models available; no single model is the best in all cases. Choosing the appropriate model, as well as the necessary input data to the model can be a daunting task. In this proposal, we discuss an approach to designing a compute ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Development of Mass Micropropagation Methodology to Enhance Cypripedium Floriculture

    SBC: GARDENS AT POST HILL LLC            Topic: N/A

    Problem Cypripedium is a genus of temperate terrestrial slipper orchids with very showy flowers that make excellent garden plants, and which have several medicinal properties related to the sedative, hypnotic and spasmolytic activity of rhizome extracts. Several species of Cypripedium were once common across the northern United States. Loss of habitat due to development as well as overcollection f ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. HT-production of Abs using Interaction Trap in Yeast

    SBC: AFFOMIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Affomix would like to commercialize antibody chips to enable researchers to study the human proteome. Currently, researchers use gene chips as a surrogate means to estimate the concentration of the vast variety of pro teins in cells and tissues. But given the choice, most researchers would prefer to study the proteins directly because of the; i) poor correla ...

  9. Microfluidic selection of monoclonal antibodies

    SBC: AFFOMIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nearly 20 years ago, partially as a response to leveraging the genomics research the NIH invested in the development of gene array technologies. These gene chips' enabled great breakthroughs in our understanding of the underlying biological processes that occur in cells and tissues. These increased understandings have already led to new therapies that affect ...

  10. Huperzine for Cognitive and Functional Impairment in Schizophrenia


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Schizophrenia affects approximately 3 million people in the US, and it is one of the leading causes of disability. Currently available drugs are only partially effective, particularly for the cognitive impairments that contribute to functional loss. A new investigational drug, BMD-101, has been shown to have neuroprotective, neurotrophic, cholinergic, and dopa ...
