  1. ePluribus Solver: Harnessing the power of collective intelligence to solve complex problems

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: SB093004

    MSI"s Phase I efforts demonstrated a concept for massively distributed social problem-solving that we propose to develop into a full-featured framework enabling communities to form solutions to complex, multi-factor problems. The ePluribus Solver is motivated by the"wisdom of the crowds"philosophy that proposes that a solution can emerge from a large, diverse group that is superior to a solution f ...

  2. Front End Opto-Electronics for Future Radio Communications

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: ST081013

    The innovation in this Phase II SBIR program is the development of a unique process technology that will enable the realization of a high current InP based photodetector capable of operating at increased optical power densities and with improved reliability. The process technology is an epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process in which the epitaxial material is completely removed from the InP substrate o ...

  3. Neuromorphic Models of Human Social Cultural Behavior (HSCB)

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: OSD10HS3

    Human Social Cultural Behavioral (HSCB) modeling has been described as"the most difficult task humans have yet undertaken"(Pew and Mavor, 1998). Central to this effort is a fundamental understanding of human behavior, but this understanding is currently based on observations that are not only qualitative, but also biased. Neuroimaging modalities such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) ...

  4. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescence inst ...

  5. Investigation of Solvent Toxicity in Bacterial Strains Involved in Butanol Production

    SBC: Integrated Genomics, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD1

    Reduction in dependency on imported petroleum and the quest to identify renewable energy sources has led to a search for innovative biofuels derived from renewable biomass, which promise long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Butanol is one possible biofuel. It is an industrial fuel that can be produced from crops using acetone-butanol (AB) fermentation by butanolagenic microbes, such a ...

  6. Fiber Optic Sensors with Hydrophilic, Radionuclide-Selective Cladding for the Detection of Radionuclides in Water Supplies

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 06NCERD5

    In this proposed Phase I project, we will develop a fiber optic scintillator system with radionuclide-selective cladding for use in the detection of radionuclide contamination in water supplies or wastewater streams. The current terrorist threat requires that vigilance be maintained on all avenues of attack to the United States, including the potential for attack on the country’s food or water ...

  10. Development of a Scalable, Low-Cost, Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Electrochemical Process for the Destruction of Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs)

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: E

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will develop and ready for commercialization a scalable, low-cost process for purification of water containing Contaminants of Emerging Concern (CECs) using anodic oxidation with boron-doped ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD®) thin films. Resent research demonstrated that there is considerable potential for the development of electrochemica ...
