  1. Automated Basic Reading Assessment

    SBC: Analytic Measures Incorporated            Topic: 1

    This project team will develop and test a prototype of Moby.Read, a stand-alone app for handheld devices or tablets. Using Moby.Read, grade school students will read a passage out loud and the speech-recognition software will generate an assessment of oral-reading fluency in real-time. The app is intended to replace face-to-face oral reading assessments done by teachers in order to save teachers t ...

  2. Biofueled Thermoelectric Cookstove

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    Over 50 million Indian households cook on a bio-mass fire and have unreliable or no electricity but are anxious to purchase an affordable power stove which will provide on-demand power and lighting to their homes. Annually, projected sales of the power stove could save sixteen million trees, reduce cooking fire particulates by 90%, reduce the two million premature deaths caused from indoor air pol ...

  4. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  5. EdSurge Concierge: Improving Product Discovery Process

    SBC: EDSURGE INC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team and their partners developed EdSurge Concierge, an online platform to facilitate school improvement. With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a next prototype of the platform with improved capability to generate information administrators need to make decisions on selecting technology tools to drive school improvement. The protot ...

  6. Exploiting Microbiome and Synthetic Biology to Discover and Produce Naturally Occurring Antibiotics

    SBC: Radiant Genomics, Inc.            Topic: CBD152004

    In this proposal, we aim to validate the human gut microbiome and arid soil as a source of antibiotic natural products (NPs ) by using ametagenomic NP discovery platform developed at Radiant Genomics. Recent studies suggest that the genomes of uncultivated microorganisms,like their cultivated counterparts, encode an enormous number of NPs. Gaining systematic access to NPs using standard, cultivati ...

  7. Exploiting Natural Products-Based Therapeutics for Aflatoxin Mitigation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD152003

    Aflatoxins are a paradigm among fungal produced mycotoxins that are present in food supplies and are strongly associated with increased risk forthe development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Currently, there are no known countermeasures that can selectively mitigate aflatoxin toxicity andthe available options are only symptomatic treatments. To meet this challenge, we propose to harness the microbio ...

  9. High-Efficiency Nutrient Removal and Recovery for Achieving Low Regulatory Limits

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER05

    Discharge of nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and ammonia) to surface waters can cause eutrophication and the formation of toxic algal blooms, threatening human health and the environment. However, current phosphorus treatment technologies such as chemical precipitation and conventional biological systems can be costly and ineffective to reliably achieve impending effluent regulatory limits of
