  1. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  2. Bulk Composite Materials for Detection of Gamma Radiation

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: DTRA08005

    The objective of this proposal is to develop enabling technology for the production of bulk scintillating nanocomposites that have gamma radiation detection properties of single crystal NaI but with the manufacturability of plastic scintillators. These performance criteria may be met by developing nanoparticle polymer composites with ultra-high nanoparticle loadings. These ‘ultra-composites’ w ...

  3. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...

  4. Vegetable oil based gel materials for cosmetic, toiletry, and candle markets

    SBC: APPLECHEM INC            Topic: N/A

    As a nation, we are faced with multiple challenges from global climate warming, rapid depletion of fossil oil, a strong desire to become independent from foreign oils, and a moral obligation to preserve our environment for future generations. In response to these challenges, many consumers have changed their purchasing behavior, preferring bio-based products over fossil-based products with a willi ...

  5. The Development of an Environmentally Compliant and Cost Effective On-Site Animal Manure Management Composting Technology

    SBC: ENGINEERED COMPOST SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Animal Manure Management is a major challenge to dairies and CAFO's with respect to efficient resource use, farm economics and environmental impacts. Composting is an established process for converting animal manure into other value-added products such as soil amendment and animal bedding material. However, current agricultural composting practices do not generally address increasingly stringent a ...

  6. Topic 8.8:Biofuels, Exelus BTL Process

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project proposes a new approach to making liquid fuels from cellulosic biomass sources (a Biomass-to-Liquids or "BTL" process) that would significantly reduce the cost and complexity of production. The project uses innovative chemistry and reactor designs to enhance efficiency, selectivity, and reduce operating condition severity. Phase I aims to demonstrate process feasibility by determ ...

  7. Beneficiation of Chipped and Shredded Woody Biomass

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Our firm has been cooperating with engineers and scientists to develop materials that can be made from shredded woody debris. Field work during those projects put us in contact with many contractors and community-based organizations who were frustrated with the lack of markets for "chipped" woody biomass. We found that most community-based wildfire protection program leaders were unaware of the qu ...

  8. The Use of Reproductive Technology to Improve Flounder Growth

    SBC: GREATBAY AQUACULTURE LLC            Topic: N/A

    In the US, Paralichthyd flounder, summer (Paralichthys dentatus) and southern (P. lethostigma) flounder on the east coast and California halibut (P. californicus) on the west, are high-value finfish with established markets worldwide. While the demand for flounder remains high globally, fishing pressure has significantly reduced wild catches, such that demand often exceeds supply. Meeting the incr ...

  9. Mass-Rearing Predators for Augmentation Biological Control of Balsam Woolly Adelgids in Fraser Fir Plantations

    SBC: INSECT DIET & REARING INSTITUTE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    PROBLEM: Efforts to control balsam woolly adelgids (BWA) with conventional pesticides have failed, and natural enemy populations are too sparse to effectively control BWA, an exotic pest destroying natural and cultivated firs in the US, including Fraser firs in Christmas tree plantations. We propose to develop the technology for a diet-based mass rearing system for brown lacewings to control BWA i ...

  10. Design and Optimization Strategies for Processing Open-Ocean Mussels in the Offshore Environment

    SBC: LANG, A E FISHING            Topic: N/A

    The demand for seafood in the United States is increasing and will continue to increase. Recent federal health guidelines call for Americans to double their consumption of seafood. The U.S. would need an additional 4 to 6 million metric tons of seafood per year over current levels if we doubled our consumption. If consumption remains at the current per capita levels, the U.S. will still require an ...
