  1. Low Cost, Compact, Direct Detection Wind and Temperature Lidar for Measurements in the Boundary Layer

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: 845

    Monitoring and forecasting of atmospheric winds within the United States provides protection from severe weather conditions, enables the safe operations of airports, provides the ability to predict wildfire evolution, and the dispersion of hazardous material plumes. However, the current NOAA National Profiler Network (NPN) is limited in spatial extent and is temporally and spatially very spar ...

  2. Climate Information Management (CIM) Toolkit

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    State governors recognized the need for drought information, which resulted in the implementation of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). Other government efforts provide climate services in order to monitor, forecast, and mitigate the impacts of climate. In response to the SBIR request for a “Robust Software Data Integration Tool in Support of the NIDIS and ...

  3. Transportation Vehicle Waste Heat Recovery System

    SBC: MMPG LLC            Topic: 101FT1

      A one-cylinder diesel engine will be modified to achieve a 20% to 40% improvement in fuel efficiency.  This will be accomplished by insulating the interior of the combustion chamber with a proprietary thermal insulating material.  Heat normally transferred to the engine coolant through the walls of the head, cylinder and piston will be retained within the combustion chamber where ...

  4. Cost-Effective Biomass Conversion via an Online Carbohydrate Monitoring Device

    SBC: ADVANCED MICROLABS, LLC            Topic: 88

    Biomass is a renewable resource with high potential to achieve cost effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly energy to the American consumer, but yet is still deemed inefficient. First, current methodologies only allow conversion of cellulosic materials into biofuel, leaving energy-rich hemicellulosic material unutilized. Second, even though carbohydrate conversion is the focus of biomass ...

  5. Retrofit Emissions Control Technology for Agricultural Diesel Sources

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: 84

    Agricultural equipment powered using hydrocarbon fuels emit VOCs, CO, soot, particulates, and NOx. However, controlling and reducing these emissions can impose a heavy economic burden on farmers and the agricultural industry. For example, equipment powered by two cycle engines cannot economically employ catalytic converter technology for highway gasoline and diesel engines. Thus, economic control ...

  6. Development of a BtBooster Synergist for Bt Transgenic Plants

    SBC: INSECTIGEN INC            Topic: 82

    Insecticidal efficacy is a major insecticide market driver. In 2004, InsectiGen, Inc. announced a scientific breakthrough, BtBooster, a new technology that enhances the performance of the leading biopesticide, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Although extended efforts to improve Bt biopesticides have led to the discovery of over 250 cry genes, only a few are deployed in Bt plants. BtBooster is a pepti ...

  7. Low-cost Removal of Dissolved Solids and Fermentation Inhibitors for Cellulosic Ethanol

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    While significant progress has been made in the conversion of cellulosic biomass to fuel ethanol, it has not yet been commercialized on a wide-scale because a number of important technical problems remain unsolved. If these challenges can be overcome, cellulosic ethanol is much more promising as a renewable bio-fuel than corn ethanol because it produces a much greater net greenhouse gas (GHG) emis ...

  8. MOVING TOWARD A SUSTAINABLE TO-GO CONTAINER FOR HOT BEVERAGES IN MASS-MARKET FOODSERVICE

    SBC: TEA SPOT, THE            Topic: 89

    Within the past 2-3 years, an abundance of "eco-friendly" to-go hot beverage cups have appeared in the marketplace. Upon closer examination, many of these to-go cups for hot drinks have questionable environmental appeal and a strong "green-washing" market spin. The Tea Spot has designed a patent pending to-go system for loose leaf tea. Our plan is to manufacture these to-go systems for coffee and ...

  9. My Academic Plan

    SBC: SHW Enterprises            Topic: N/A

    My Academic Plan will be a web-based social-behavioral formative assessment intervention for eighth grade students. Students will take an initial online resiliency quiz and based on the responses the software will produce a personal plan across a series of dimensions. The intervention will be during class and will provide individualized tutorials. The intervention will include teacher professional ...

  10. Development of a transgenic mouse line engineered to permit selection and cloning

    SBC: ABEOME CORPORATION            Topic: NCRR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Applicant proposes an improvement to monoclonal antibody technology through the generation of transgenic mice engineered to facilitate flow cytometric isolation and cloning of specific antigen-reactive plasmacytes. Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are arguably the most important biological reagents used in biomedical research, diagnostics, and therapeutics, and ...
