  1. Protein Qspec: An Improved Method for Rapid Characterization of Protein Aggregates in Biologic Drugs for Increased Quality and Safety

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: 90201

    Optofluidics will develop Protein Qspec, a new particle analysis QC instrument designed to characterize protein aggregates in biologic drugs. The primary concern for this class of therapeutics is that they can elicit an immune response from patients who develop anti-drug antibodies which can eliminate the therapeutic benefit. The presence of particulate matter, in these therapeutics (e.g. shed gla ...

  2. OpenTreeID: Advancing Community Forestry with Human-Augmented Computer Vision

    SBC: Azavea Inc.            Topic: 81

    The proposed research will develop new tools for automated tree species identification that will advance the collaboration of government agencies, citizen groups, and nonprofit organizations that is critical to contemporary community forestry. Proper species identification is particularly important during a tree inventory, since many diseases and infestations are species-specific. Yet the large nu ...

  3. The Development of a Breeding Station for a Predator of Coffee Berry Borer

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    The goal of this proposal is to increase the population of the Square-necked Grain Beetle (SNGB), Cathartus quadricollis, in coffee plantations by developing breeding stations that use pheromones and food source odors to increase the population of this predator of Coffee Berry Borer, Hypothenemus hampei, (CBB). SNGB is a major predator of the CBB which causes significant damage to coffee in all co ...

  4. New techniques for measuring soil moisture and snow in fire prone terrain

    SBC: HYDROINNOVA LLC            Topic: 84

    Our main objective is to create hardware and services that will support fire prediction by providing improved capabilities to monitor drought, and by generating better land surface data to feed regional weather models. A second objective is to enable new research into the causesand consequences of wildfire, including studies of post?fire impacts on the hydrology, ecology and geomorphology of the b ...

  6. Enhanced Membranes for Sweetening of Manure based BioGas

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Every year over 1 billion tons of fresh animal manure is produced in US and it raises pollution concerns. "Anaerobic digestion" is an environmental friendly and energy efficient way to dispose animal manure. Animal manure is converted to biogas and digestate through this process. The animal manure digestate has a much less pollution potential than untreated animal manure and can be used as a chemi ...

  7. Innovations in materials handling to prevent musculoskeletal disorders among women livestock farmers

    SBC: GREEN HERON TOOLS, LLC            Topic: 812

    30% of U.S. farm operators are women. Female-operated farms tend to be smaller and less mechanized and often include livestock. Because of certain physical characteristics, women are at significant risk for musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)such as chronic back pain. MSDs are widespread in farming, with significant adverse impacts on quality of life and economic sustainability. For women, farming is ...

  8. Continued Development Of A Novel Next Generation Airborne Wind Energy System For Small And Mid Size Farms

    SBC: EWINDSOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 812

    As Oregon farmer and Organically Grown Company (OGC) executive director Andy Westlund confesses, being one of the 800,000 small commercial farmers in America is challenging (Hoppe, MacDonald, & Korb 2010). Small farms are highly exposed to market risks, tend to focus on commodities, and have profit margins of just 3-4% (Hoppe, MacDonald, & Korb 2010). As such, small price changes of a single crop ...

  9. Low Cost Innovative Greener/Safer Process for Converting Cellulose to Glucose

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 81

    The current dependence of the United States on fossil fuels has sparked enormous interest in the development of biomaterials derived from biomass, specifically cellulosic biomaterials. Cellulosic biomaterials are a carbon neutral, renewable resource, and their use could drastically curtail total carbon dioxide emissions while also reducing U.S. dependence on fossil fuels. Biofuels is one example o ...

  10. Transparent Tapered Resistive Elements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SOCOM16004

    A robust system level design process will be used to identify the design of transparent tapered resistive (TTR) elements, including the materials, fabrication processes, and lifecycle costs. The transparent tapered resistive film will be designed to provides a tapered resistive layer across the film while remaining transparent in the visual and near-infrared optical bands for use in radio-frequenc ...
