  1. A2a Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis

    SBC: ADENOSINE THERAPEUTICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    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. 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 ...

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

    SBC: CATALYST COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    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 ...

  4. A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM TO DESIGN HIGH PERFORMANCE AND HIGH EFFICIENCY AGRICULTURAL VENTILATION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Digital Flow Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Tunnel ventilation is an effective means of protecting and enhancing the productivity of livestock (especially swine and egg layers) in large scale confinement barns. The capital and operating costs for these fan installations typically represents a significant fraction of the total costs to the livestock producer. The Phase I research program has shown that significant improvements (ca. 40 perce ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. FIBER OPTIC REFRACTOMETERS FOR FOOD PROCESS MONITORING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I, the F&S team successfully demonstrated the feasibility of two high-resolution optical fiber refractometers which overcome many limitation of existing refractometer instrumentation for complex food process monitoring applications. The F&S optical fiber refractometers are based on patented and patent- pending sensor designs which avoid alignment of multiple bulk optic components in t ...

  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 ...
