  1. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

  2. Natural Rubber Production

    SBC: Edison Agrosciences, Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Natural rubber is an essential manufacturing material that possesses performance properties that are superior to synthetic rubber for many product applications. However, natural rubber production is limited to a single species (rubber tree) in a limited geographic area (Southeast Asia) and is predicted to be incapable of meeting future demand. Producing rubber from another commercial crop such as ...

  3. Natural Rubber Production

    SBC: American Sustainable Rubber Company, LLC            Topic: ST18C001

    Rubber is pervasive in our economy, with over 50,000 products requiring natural rubber (NR), including military grade tires. Yet significant global shortfalls are projected. Rubber dandelion (Taraxacum kok-saghyz) produces natural rubber (cis-1,4, -polyisoprene) in root latex vessels (laticifers) almost identical to rubber from the tropical rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). Problem: Cost-effective ...

  4. SWIFT ARROW STTR Phase 2

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: OSD12AU3

    In Dense Urban Environments (DUEs), a new and evolving battlefield, the ability to detect and respond quickly to multiple threats in complex environments (e.g., snipers on rooftops or in windows) is critical and is extremely important to both civilian and military tactical needs. Response latency in the critical moments after the beginning of an attack can significantly increase casualties. SWIFT ...

  5. Products for Fabrication of Atomically Precise Strongly Correlated Materials

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: ST17C002

    This STTR will develop atomically precise fabrication and measurement technology that will enable a new experimental regime to study the physics of strongly correlated quantum systems.The fabrication techniques are based primarily on Hydrogen Depassivation Lithography (HDL) which uses Scanning Tunneling Microscope technology to create atomically precise patterns of H on a Si (100) 2x1 surface in a ...

  6. Assess Stability and Anti-Fragility of Dense Urban Terrains

    SBC: Cordillera Applications Group, Inc.            Topic: ST17C003

    The objective of this proposal is to examine the feasibility of defining and measuring key dimensions of an urban system to include its essential functions and networks, and whether they can be modelled in a computational framework for assessing robustness and resilience of DUTs (and their tipping points) under conditions of volatility and stress. This proposal will conduct a comprehensive review ...

  7. Complex Networks for Computational Urban Resilience (CONCUR)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: ST17C003

    CONCUR develops a computational framework for assessing and characterizing urban environments stability or fragility in response to volatility and stress, identifying specific weaknesses as well as key tipping points which could lead to rapid systemic failure. CONCUR explicitly models urban environments as emergent complex systems, focusing attention on the critical triggers that could lead to rap ...

  8. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: Nootrobox Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  9. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...

  10. Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High Altitude

    SBC: Research Logistics Company            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...
