Digital Optical Method (DOM TM)
ERDC-CERL and University of Illinois (UI) have developed a new plume opacity measurement technology known as Digital Optical Method (DOMTM). DOMTM estimates the opacity of plumes in the out door ambient environment by analyzing digital images that are produced by off-the-shelf digital cameras. Airborne particulate matter causes light extinction due to its ability to absorb and scatter light. Opacity is expressed as the percent of light that is attenuated by the plume. DOMTM includes both contrast and transmission models that are based on light extinction theory to calculate plume opacity. Air permit holders and facility operators are required to measure/monitor opacity from their stationary air pollution sources. Presently, the ASTM standard for monitoring is US Method 9 which relies on human visual perception to measure opacity. The DOMTM method provides improved consistency and accuracy of the measurements, and permits retention of a digital record of the event.

Wireless Blade Monitoring & Wireless Communication System
Many helicopters, both civilian and military, use pressurized rotor blades as a means to detect damage to their integrity. The gas pressure is monitored and a loss of pressure indicates the possible formation of microscopic cracks in the blade that could cause catastrophic failure leading to the loss of an aircraft. Currently used is a mechanical bellows indicator that requires a visual determination of pressure loss, which includes a radioactive source and an on-board detector to provide remote sensing. Since this technology is expensive, maintenance intensive, environmentally hazardous and banned in some foreign military applications, the need exists for a rotor blade monitoring system that can provide an improved in-flight indication of potential rotor blade faults without use of radioactive isotopes and be easy to use and simple to install. As a result the Navy developed a tested a wireless/temperature measurement system for helicopter blade health monitoring that does not use any hazardous material, it’s easy to install, and more dependable.

Zassi Medical Evolutions, Inc.
Continence Ostomy Systems
Zassi’s Continent Ostomy System is a non-pouch ostomy management solution. Ostomy surgery generally requires the resection of the part or the entire colon and/or rectum and the subsequent diversion of the colon or small bowel via an ostomy wherein the end of the remaining healthy portion of the colon or small bowel is brought through the abdominal wall, inverted on itself and sutured in place to form a stoma. From that point forward, the individual is forever incontinent as their fecal stream is continuously diverted through their ostomy into a plastic bag (ostomy pouch) attached to their abdomen via adhesives, glues or belts. Zassi is developing a Continent Ostomy System that will consist of a family of single-use disposable and proprietary devices including: an ostomy sealing device, a moisture barrier, an irrigation system and a drainage sleeve. In addition to the disposables, the COS will include a means of controlling regional colonic motility. Zassi’s research indicates the failure to control regional colonic activity explains the disappointing results of many previous attempts at non-pouch, ostomy management alternatives. Zassi believes the inclusion of active colonic motility control in their Continent Ostomy System will ensure the reliable continence these consumers are searching for and will demand before abandoning their undesirable but predictable ostomy pouches.

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
NASA Goddard has developed a low-cost procedure for producing high-yield single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), thus making the practical applications and enormous potential of the materials within reach.
Currently, the cost for one gram of SWCNTs can approach $1,500 and is strongly dependent on the amount of post processing required by the purchaser (low-end prices usually require further processing thus increasing the cost). In contrast, NASA Goddard’s method produces high yield SWCNT (approximately 75-80%) at a cost of nearly $10 per gram and requires no post processing. Producing high yield SWCNTs is accomplished though our unique method, which does not require a metal catalyst.

This technology is a significant improvement over the existing fiber optic sol gel sensors. By having the doped sol-gel injected into the fiber optic core, the sensor becomes part of the fiber optic waveguide. Therefore, any photons generated from the reaction are transmitted down the fiber. This improves sensitivity greatly over existing technologies where the sol-gel surrounds the fiber and the photons have to be coupled into the fiber.
