  1. Digital SQUID Array for Portable Low-Field MRI System for Combat Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: OSD11H18

    Recent research has shown that Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) may be used to measure the very weak magnetic signals in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at ultra-low magnetic fields in the milli-tesla range or below. However, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is quite low, requiring very long averaging times to obtain reasonable spatial resolution. Under the Phase I project, we ...

  2. Growth of a Fungal Biopolymer to Displace Common Synthetic Polymers and Exotic Woods

    SBC: Ecovative Design Llc            Topic: B

    The use of plastic (polyethylene, Polypropylene, polyurethane and poly lactic acid) has grown and continues to grow steadily because of the materials’ high strength-to-weigh ratios, low cost, and ease of molding as compared to conventional natural materials. Unfortunately, almost all commercial plastics are notoriously unsustainable due to fossil fuel-based constituents, the wasteful and energy ...

  3. EXPERT COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION ACCESS NETWORK (ECIAN)

    SBC: ANALYSIS & SIMULATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VARIOUS ACTIVITIES (EDUCATION, GOVERNMENT, RESEARCH) GENERATE LARGE AMOUNTS OF RAW DATA. HOWEVER, DATA IS COLLECTED IN A DISJOINTED AND ISOLATED FASHION (I.E., ACTS, LITERATURE) CREATING BARRIERS IN DATA ACCESS AND DISSEMINATION. THERE IS A CONSENSUS AMONG FAMILIES AND PROFESSIONALS, THAT NEEDS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES AND SERVICES PROVIDED TO THESE INDIVIDUALS COULD BE GREATLY IMPROVED IF ...

  5. EXTRACTION OF COPPER AND ZINC FROM MIXED-METAL CYANIDE SOLUTION USING SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION

    SBC: Chromatochem Inc.            Topic: N/A

    REMOVAL OF TOXIC METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS HAS BECOME A PROBLEM OF INCREASING NATIONAL IMPORTANCE, AS A RESULT OF INCREASING CONCERN FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, AND INCREASINGLY STRINGENT WASTE DISPOSAL REGULATIONS. CHROMATOCHEM, INC., HAS DEVELOPED AN ECONOMICAL AND EFFECTIVE NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR THE REMOVAL OF LOW LEVELS OF TOXIC METAL IONS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS, USING SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION (SPE) ...

  6. UNIQUE ON-SITE DESTRUCTION OF TRANSFORMER ASKARELS USING A LOW-TEMPERATURE, MILD CHEMICAL METHOD

    SBC: Veritay Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THESE IS A GREAT NEED FOR A SAFE, ENERGY-EFFICIENT, ON-SITE METHOD FOR DECONTAMINATING VARIOUS CHEMICAL TOXINS. NEARLY ALL (I.E., 99.8%) OF THE POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS (PCBS) FOUND IN CURRENT APPLICATIONS ARE USED AS DIELECTIC FLUID. THIS AMOUNTS TO ABOUT 30,000,000 GALLONS OF PCB-CONTAMINATED FLUID. TO REDUCE THIS EXPOSURE RISK THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY IS REQUIRING THE ACCELERATED PH ...
