  1. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-Radio Frequency (RF) Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks. The HURFS approach combines the u ...

  2. A Low-Toxicity, Non-Pyrotechnic, High Yield Visible Obscurant

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A17059

    There is a need to replace toxic obscurant smokes with non-toxic alternatives, without sacrificing the efficacy of the obscurant. Nano Terra proposes to formulate non-toxic, hygroscopic materials into smoke formulations that will produce smoke having high mass extinction coefficients. These formulations will produce aerosols with well-defined yield factors, leading to highly efficient smoke genera ...

  3. A MERS-CoV Receptor Decoy


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is newly emerging human health threat with a more than 40% case fatality rate. The cell surface protein dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4) is used by MERS-CoV to enterand infect cells. Soluble recombinant human DPP4 binds the MERS-CoV spike (S) glycoprotein and inhibits MERS-CoV infection of VERO cells, but the ...

  4. A method for preparing unbiased miRNA sequencing libraries

    SBC: Somagenics, Inc.            Topic: NHGRI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal addresses the problem of bias in the expression profiling of microRNAs (miRNAs) and other small RNAs by next-generation sequencing (NGS). Because dysregulation of miRNA expression has been implicated in cancer and certain other diseases, accurate expression profiling of all miRNA sequences is important for understanding miRNA biology and for devel ...

  5. A method to determine mRNA isoform frequencies using novel primer generators

    SBC: VLP BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 400

    AbstractCurrent methods for RNA seq library preparation attempt to uniformly sample all sequences across every mRNA moleculeoptimally with sufficient overlap to allow de novo reassembly of the mRNA sequences from which they deriveor alternativelyto allow inference of mRNA sequence by alignment with reference sequencesGenes that encode mRNAs in multiple isoforms present a challengegiven a complete ...

  6. A Microfluidic Biosensor Platform for Real-Time Water Monitoring

    SBC: Quantitative Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 22b

    Access to clean, reliable water supplies is critical to our quality of life and our economy, yet across the country thousands of hazardous waste sites are so heavily contaminated that the un- derlying groundwater doesn’t meet drinking water standards- Measuring contamination in the environment is critical to human health and to understanding complex subsurface systems, but current testing is mos ...

  10. A Model-assisted Damage Diagnostics and Characterization(MoDDiaC) wireless-sensor network based Structural Health Monitoring System for Composite Roto

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N122110

    Current Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems can be used for composite damage monitoring. However, current systems lack the ability to accurately detect, locate and characterize damage for complex composite structures with local property variation. Acellent Technologies Inc. has therefore proposed to develop reliable and consistent damage diagnostics and characterization techniques for U.S. ...
