  1. Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon Displays

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: 825

    This proposal outlines the development of a precision instrument for calibrating satellite based imaging sensors – the Hyperspectral Image Projector. The HIP instrument is capable of producing realistic, standards-based satellite imagery simultaneously projecting spectral spatial scenes. This proposed effort will concentrate on the spectral engine of the HIP, with the goal of produ ...

  2. A Stochastic Integration Toolkit fo rComprehensive Global Weather and Climate Models

    SBC: ARGOS INTELLIGENCE, LLC            Topic: 823

      Stochastic parameterization of large scale models is becoming an important tool for evaluating climate predictability and for enabling accurate representation of effects of micro-scale and short time physics on long time climate statistics. The models currently used to evaluate climate risk do not incorporate these stochastic effects, but represent multi-year development and collaborat ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Development of a Mycoherbicide for Control of Dandelion

    SBC: Agricultural Resch Init            Topic: 82

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will evaluate a fungal organism as a mycoherbicide for control of dandelion in the turf. Because of significant growth in the turf grass industry and the subsequent increase in use of chemical herbicides, this technology can have impact to lessen environmental issues surrounding pesticide use, especially in areas of high public contact such a ...

  8. Commercial-Scale Implementation of Blue-Catfish Germplasm for Hybrid Production

    SBC: BAXTER LAND COMPANY ,INC            Topic: 87

    Our long-range goal is to cryopreserve blue catfish sperm reliably at a commercial scale in a cost-effective manner for high-throughput production of catfish hybrids. This effort could allow farmers to specialize in germplasm only, or hybrid fingerling production only, thereby diversifying the industry and enhancing economic opportunities for catfish producers throughout rural southeastern region ...

  9. Plant Produced Porcine IL-12 Vaccine Adjuvant for Swine Flu and Other Viral Diseases

    SBC: Biostratagies, LC            Topic: 82

    As the nation attempts to meet the challenges posed by the spread of pandemic influenza there is a need for innovative strategies to produce effective vaccines for humans, poultry and livestock. Interleukin-12 (IL-12) is a potent adjuvant of cell-mediated immunity that has been shown to enhance protection afforded by influenza vaccines. The use of IL-12 adjuvant could improve vaccines for several ...

  10. A Sensitive Single-tube Immunocapture Real-Time RT-PCR for Early Detection of Plant Pathogens in Crops

    SBC: AC DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: 82

    Plant virus infections cause tremendous economic losses in agricultural production each year in the U.S. Potential introduction of foreign pathogens which could threaten the safety of American agriculture has accelerated in recent years because of increasing international seed and plant trade. The first line of defense against such devastating viral diseases is the early and sensitive detection of ...
