  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Low Energy Comminution of Herbaceous Biomass Feedstocks

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Size reduction, or comminution, is a fundamental processing step for lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks used as a raw material for conversion to biofuels. Grinding or milling of herbaceous materials such as corn stover, switchgrass, miscanthus and other biofuel feedstocks consumes a lot of energy, produces particle shapes that are difficult to handle, requires dry raw material, and often results i ...

  4. Advanced Control System for Biofuel Combustion

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: 81

    Combustion of biomass, especially in small-scale applications, produces high emissions of particulate matter (PM) that have been linked to adverse health effects and global climate change. Current industrial particulate control solutions are prohibitively expensive for use in small scale biomass burners. To overcome these challenges, inexpensive and effective combustion control solutions for small ...

  5. Electrosedation and rested harvest as strategies to improve the quality of farm-raised fish

    SBC: Smith-root, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Traditional chemical sedatives for the processing of farm-raised fish are considered animal drugs that are subject to specific regulations and usage constraints (as well as chemical-bath disposal concerns). As an alternative, we propose to evaluate the use of mild, non-lethal electrosedation techniques to narcotize farm-raised fish in an effort to evaluate the technologys potential to reduce pre-h ...

  6. Enhancing rural small business opportunities by developing a low cost heat source and developing the utilization of char as a soil amendment

    SBC: SYNTHIGEN, LLC            Topic: 86

    Rural communities that rely on, and are part of an agricultural-based economy where seed and grain cleaning facilities operate are plentiful in the Pacific Northwest and other parts of the U.S. Creating new opportunities for employment and income generation in these communities is frequently difficult because it can require considerable amounts of capital investment and new market development. We ...
