Enhancement of Pyrethroid Activity with Paraquat as an Adjuvant
This technology is an adjuvant to existing insecticides that may help to make resistant mosquitoes more subjectable and susceptible to existing insecticides in permethrin-coated bed nets. These bed nets are used in mosquito infested areas to reduce the chance of insect bites and contracting diseases.
Microfluidic Devices with Thick-Film Electrochemical Detection
The invention is an apparatus for conducting microfluidic process and analysis, including at least one elongated microfluidic channel, fluidic transport means for transport of fluids through the microfluidic channel, and at least one thick-film electrode in fluidic connection with the outlet end of the microfuidic channel.
Low Bit-Rate Speech Coding Through Quantization of Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients
This invention claims that if a high-resolution mel-frequent cepstrum is computed, good-quality speech reconstruction is possible from the mel-frequency cepstral coefficients despite the lack of phase information.
High Control Authority Speed Control Moment Gyroscope
Control moment gyroscopes (CMG) are devices used in attitude control systems to control the orientation and angular velocity of vehicles such as spacecraft. This invention improves functionality and is relevant to aerospace, defense, and maritime industries.
Facile, Scalable Surface Modication Approach for Altering the Wetting Properties of Copper, Aluminum, and Brass
This technology is a novel surface treatment that creates superior wetting characteristics for a variety of metals and alloys to improve the heat exchange between fluids and heat exchanger walls.
Navigate the number line while diving among shipwrecks and sunken ruins. Will you find a pearl, or an old boot? Watch out for the electric eel! Pearl Diver teaches properties of numbers, how to plot numbers, how to visualize quantity on the number line, how to order numbers, and how to use the number line as a visual model for mathematical operations.
Understanding Western Soils
This series provides guidance on how to sample soil for analysis and includes visualizations related to soil properties and water infiltration. Concepts such as particle size, soil water-holding capacity, runoff, leaching, sodium adsorption ratio, sodic soils, and saturated paste are explored. Short video demonstrations assist with teaching or learning. The series focuses on arid soils, such as those found in the American West.
Treadsylvania, ATV Safety
Treadsylvania is a fun, engaging Web-based interactive game, designed to help learners ages 8-18 understand how to ride All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) safely. Treadsylvania isn’t your traditional ATV training program, but instead, it is a fun, visually appealing adventure game that can be played in short bouts (less than an hour).
Data Port Protection and Tamper Detection
This technology provides a method for denying, deterring, and detecting unauthorized access to On Board Diagnostic (OBD) ports in vehicles, Universal Serial Bus (USB), and D-sub (DB9, DB15, DB25, DB26, and DVI) computer ports and removal of USB cables, to improve Cyber Defense and maintain system integrity.
