  1. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: MERCURY DATA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121FT1

    We propose to develop an advanced navigation solution for public transportation passengers that will guide them from their origin to single or multiple destination points and across multiple modes of transportation. Passengers will simply need to enter their destination (and optionally a starting point) and the system will select optimal and alternative routes. The navigation software will run on ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Ultra-Thin Silicon Solar Cells with Novel Junction Design

    SBC: Amberwave, Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a silicon solar cell with unique junction design that provides synergistic benefits as the thickness of the solar cell is reduced. Thin silicon solar cells are currently the subject of intense interest because, in comparison to conventional bulk silicon solar cells: (a) they can be produced by "kerfless" techniques that result in ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Enhancing the Bactericidal Activity of Copper: An Economically Viable Solution for Lowering Copper Usage Rates in Agriculture

    SBC: AGILE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project describes a cost-effective method for reducing the quantities of copper used for agricultural crop protection. Currently, millions of pounds of copper are being sprayed onto plants each year. This copper is released into the environment, resulting in contamination of soil and waterways and deleterious effects on the ecosystem. Furthermore, pa ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Bio-Based Latex by Emulsion Polymerization of Alkyl Itaconates

    SBC: Itaconix Corporation            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the development of performance bio-based latex from alkyl itaconates for application in wood coatings. Identified by DOE in 2004 as a top 12 renewable chemical, itaconic acid and its derivatives have potential use in polymers for a variety of products from builders in detergents to binders in paints and coatings. Itaconix has ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Long Fiber Thermoplastic Composites from Recycled Carbon Fiber

    SBC: MATERIALS INNOVATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) compositions based on recycled carbon fiber. In Phase I, we demonstrated the ability to make high quality LFT formulations based on (1) waste carbon fiber and (2) composites scrap and end-of-life thermoplastic and thermoset carbon fiber composites. Mechanical properties of these composites were sim ...
