  1. Testing feasibility and scalability of a new engineered design of an aerated static pile composting system.

    SBC: Compost Plant, L3C, The            Topic: 86

    Food waste is a significant and complex problem for the United States. Americans generate over 250 million (short) tons of trash a year, and organic materials such as paper and paperboard, yard trimmings, and food waste continue to make up a large component of the waste stream. These organic materials collectively account for a significant portion of U.S. methane emissions, as organic waste produc ...

  2. SWEdar- an Automated Low-Power Snow Water Equivalent Sensor

    SBC: Flat Earth Inc            Topic: 84

    Intellectual Merit: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will assist in producing the next-generation approach for monitoring critical water resources stored in the seasonal snowpack. Agriculture is a significant user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Wes ...

  3. Intelligent Mapping of the Farm Using Low-Cost, GPS-Enabled Cameras During Existing Farm Activities

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 812

    With the advent of precision agriculture, the way we farm is changing. Technologies exist to add precision to all aspects of the farm. Through "mapping the farm," precision management strategies can be implemented such as: targeted herbicide application, targeted soil management, improved yield predictions, improved management of water, and other farm resources. These practices all require informa ...

  4. Ultra-Durable Polyolefin Based Waterproofing Coating

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A16114

    The U.S. Army is interested in the development of innovative materials, films, coatings and technologies or manufacturing techniques which allow current U.S. Army airdrop related hardware and equipment to survive fresh and salt water operations with increased reliability and without damage and significant maintenance impact. Resodyn Corporation proposes for development a durable, moisture-impermea ...

  5. Creating an advanced, economical, environmentally friendly measurement of snow water equivalence using observed GPS signals beneath the snowpack

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 84

    The purpose for this research is to develop a Snow Water Equivalency (SWE) sensor that will broaden our understanding of snow and the water we receive from it. Current methods used to measure SWE are labor intensive, utilize hazardous antifreezes, economically prohibitive, and/or vulnerable to the environment. These limitations greatly restrict the number of locations where SWE measurements are ma ...

  6. Boring deterrent compounds to enhance mycoinsecticides for bark beetle control

    SBC: MONTANA BIOAGRICULTURE INC.            Topic: 81

    Montana BioAgriculture Inc., MBAI, is developing fungal insect pathogens as mycoinsecticides for bark beetles. With climate change and globalization, outbreaks of both native and introduced species of bark beetles are occurring at an unprecedented scale; killing trees on millions of acres of forest and causing substantial economic loss in timber harvest and in value of both private and public fore ...

  7. Lithium Ion / Super Capacitor Hybrid System

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    A hybrid lithium ion battery / super capacitor energy storage device is developed that uses the high power capability of the super capacitor to satisfy pulsed power load requirements such that stress on the lithium ion batteries is reduced. This results in extended discharge time and higher efficiency utilization of the battery stack.

  8. The Most Efficient (TME) Cold Chain Container for Blood

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A123113

    Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a novel cold chain system with a Lifetime Warranty for the vacuum container. The container composes a passive energy efficient system for transporting blood and pharmaceuticals in hostile environments for up to three days. Capacity is four 500 ml liter blood transfusion bags. Energy efficiency is possible by the novel shape and super insulating qualities ...

  9. Dual-Mode Continuous-Wave Ladar and Optical Communications System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A12089

    Because the data products generated by modern imaging ladar systems are inherently large in information content, there is currently a severe bottleneck in the communications of these products to end users, particularly when full-waveform recovery is desired. Bridger Photonics Inc. proposes to develop a dual-mode laser system capable of performing laser radar imaging as well as high speed free-spa ...

  10. Instrument for Measuring Millimeter-Wave Polarimetric Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: A123105

    The proposal will perform study and design of a gonioreflectometer or equivalent instrument that can measure Polarimetric Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (PBRDF) in the millimeter wave (mmW) spectrum using heterodyne transmit/receive (Tx/Rx) radar technology. The instrument will be used to coherently measure amplitude and phase information and construct a BRDF with user-specified ...
