Vaccine | Year: 2013
ONRAB® is a rabies glycoprotein recombinant human adenovirus type 5 oral vaccine developed for application in baits to control rabies in wildlife populations. Prior to widespread use of ONRAB®, both the safety and effectiveness of this vaccine required investigation. While previous research has focused on field performance and the persistence and pathogenicity of ONRAB® in captive animals, we sought to examine persistence and shedding of ONRAB® in populations of free-ranging target and non-target mammals. We collected oral and rectal swab samples from 84 red foxes, 169 striped skunks, and 116 raccoons during 2007 and 2008 in areas where ONRAB® vaccine baits were distributed. We also analyzed 930 tissue samples, 135 oral swab and 138 rectal swab samples from 155 non-target small mammals from 10 species captured during 2008 at sites treated with high densities of ONRAB® vaccine baits. Samples were screened for the presence and quantity of ONRAB® DNA using quantitative real-time PCR. None of the samples that we analyzed from target and non-target species contained quantities of ONRAB® greater than 103EU/mL of ONRAB® DNA which is a limit that has previously been applied to assess viral shedding. This study builds on similar research and suggests that replication of ONRAB® in animals is short-lived and the likelihood of horizontal transmission to other organisms is low. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

A SAR system with a single aperture that simultaneously transmits at a high and low frequency provides the distinct advantages of each individual frequency band, and the added benefit of having a collocated aperture. In this paper, the design of the multi-band SlimSAR and the unique multi-frequency antenna are presented. © 2011 IEEE.

The SlimSAR is a flexible, multi-frequency band, multi-mode synthetic aperture radar system with options suitable for operation on aircraft across a wide range of size and capabilities. From small unmanned aircraft flying at low altitude and covering a small area, to large aircraft covering very wide swaths, the SlimSAR has the versatility to perform in any mission scenario. One application is that of disaster monitoring, and the SlimSAR has shown its capabilities imaging the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. © 2013 IEICE.
