  1. Staring Wide Area Imager (StareWAI) for Disaster Response and Earth Science

    SBC: XIOMAS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: 81

    An airborne imaging system, built around a two axis optical mount with a light weight scanning mirror will be designed an built. This innovative design allows for flexible control of the various senosr viewing angleenabling us to control many sensor parameters including: 1) field of view, 2) scan patterns, and 3) dwell time. The design supports a variety of sensors including high resolution multi- ...

  2. Development of a novel biocatalytic fatty acid decarboxylation technology for production of liquid biofuels

    SBC: ALLUVIUM BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 88

    Throughout the past decade, there has been increasing urgency to develop novel technologies for alternative energy sources. This is being driven by the consequential relationships of increased global consumption, rapidly diminishing fossil fuel reserves, growing national energy security concerns, and geopolitical factors, all of which translate into high oil prices for the end consumer. In additio ...

  3. Glycerol Determination in Biodiesel Fuels using Glycerol Oxidase

    SBC: THE NITRATE ELIMINATION CO INC            Topic: 88

    Glycerol, also called glycerin(e), is a byproduct or contaminant of biofuel production. Glycerol must be removed from biofuels before they can be burned in order to avoid damage to combustion engines. The standard for biodiesel is less than 0.02% by weight (ASTM D6751; ASTM International sets voluntary consensus standards for quality in many industry sectors). Standard methods for glycerol determi ...

  4. Technology to Enhance Insecticidal Peptides

    SBC: VESTARON CORP            Topic: 82

    Global food production from plants is at risk from insect pests. To protect their crops farmers spend a great deal of money on insecticides. For example, US farmers spent $1.2 billion in 2009 on insecticides for crop protection, which resulted in $22.9 billion of additional income due to crops saved from insect damage. However, the number of insecticides available to farmers is declining due to de ...

  5. Tangler Technology, Advanced Mating Disruption that Provides for Rapid and Cost Effective Application

    SBC: Ridge Quest, Inc            Topic: 813

    Many factors acting together, including concerns about worker safety, food safety, pesticide resistance and new regulations governing pesticides, have heightened grower awareness to reduce insecticide inputs and increase reliance on biopesticides. Foremost among the forces leading to change is the need to reduce input costs in order to maintain economic viability. Mating disruption is among the mo ...

  6. Polyols Derived from Biomass for Polyurethane Coatings


    This proposal describes a novel platform to manufacture biobased coatings (e.g. paint, varnishes, etc.) from biomass residues. These coatings will be introduced to compete with current petroleum-based polyurethanes coatings. The use of biomass as raw materials for production of fuels and chemicals to displace fossil resources has been the focus of many research activities in recent years. These ac ...

  7. Offshore Wind Energy Resource Siting


    Over the last decade, it has been noted that offshore wind energy resource development could prove extensively valuable in many areas of our nation’s growth, including continued diversification of our energy supply, more options for cost-competitive electricity in coastal and Great Lakes regions, and economical stimulation through new and lasting infrastructure development. The challenges associ ...

  8. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the restrictive selections of finer aggregates/fillers, large heat of hydration and thermal stresses, high aut ...

  9. Compact, Low-Cost THz Test System

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I STTR project, we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low cost, compact, time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) spectrometer specifically for the characterization of semiconductor materials over a range of temperatures, electric fields, and magnetic fields. In phase I, we will configure fiber optic coupled TD-THz instrumentation to make measurements on a sampl ...
