Innovation Spotlight: SmartTrap
The Smart Trap is a simple yet rugged battery-operated device that autonomously detects and reports diseases carried by mosquitoes. When a specimen feeds on the Smart Trapâ€™s sugar bait component, it leaves behind traces of saliva, which are then assayed for transmissible amounts of pathogen.
Innovation Spotlight: Electric Current and Magnetic Field Imaging System
This technology is a non-contact device that can image electric current and three dimensional magnetic field in real time.
Safer Energetic Materials
Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory have developed energetic materials that are capable of delivering powerful explosive energy, yet demonstrate unprecedented improvements for safer storage, handling, transportation and operation. INL investigators are also working to increase the safety of ignition devices to ensure energetics detonate only when required.
Ghost Train Generator
Fermilab has developed a simple, inexpensive, effective device to reduce collision incidents related to vehicles stuck on railroad grade crossings. The device simulates continuity of locomotives or other rolling stock from rail to rail, closing the existing DC track circuit and mimicking the presence of a train.
