  1. Query-Based Interoperability for Simulation of Composite Structures

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 9020673R

    We propose to design and implement a query-based approach to interoperable modeling and simulation of composite material structures, that usually contain the manufacturing recipe within their design. In Phase I, we established the feasibility of the approach using a demonstration scenario of CAD/CAE interoperability for assemblies. In Phase II, we propose to develop a series of use-case scenarios ...

  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. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  4. LED lighting for maximizing quality parameters in specialty crop production-Phase II

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    Convincing scientific evidence provides the association between dietary choices and chronic disease expression. Dietary guidelines now in place are designed to prevent the onset of such chronic diseases as tissue-specific cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and osteoporosis. The cornerstone of recommended dietary guidelines is increased consumption of fruits and vegetables. Current USDA dietary guid ...

  5. Fat Replacement System from Natural Plant Materials for Improving Food Nutrition, Quality, and Reducing Costs

    SBC: FIBERSTAR BIO-INGREDIENT TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 85

    Obesity is a growing epidemic that threatens the health of both adults and children. The problem is exacerbated by challenging economic times and increasing food costs that put pressure on consumers to purchase lower priced meals, which may be of inferior nutritional value and/or contain excessive proportions of animal fat. Whereas many ingredients can lower fat and calorie contents of foods, thei ...

  6. Novel Vaccines Against Johne's Disease: Phase II Trials

    SBC: Pan Genome Systems, Inc            Topic: 83

    Johne & #39;s disease (JD) or paratuberculosis in animals (infection with M. avium ss. paratuberculosis, M. ap) is a contagious, chronic, and potentially fatal disease affecting the small intestine of ruminants. All ruminants are susceptible, but the largest economic impact is felt in dairy farming, where infected cattle suffer from chronic diarrhea, weight loss, low milk yield and low (but persis ...

  7. Rapid Field-appropriate Diagnostics for Detection of Viral Pathogens Associated with Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex

    SBC: LUCIGEN CORPORATION            Topic: 83

    Respiratory tract infection in pigs, commonly referred to as "Porcine Respiratory Disease Complex (PRDC)", is one of the major challenges for the swine industry, as PRDC causes significant economic losses to swine producers worldwide. Rapid detection of causative agents is the key to management of PRDC, as it allows quick implementation of a control plan to minimize the potential spread of infecti ...

  8. The Selective Control of Cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum L.) with Low-Cost Application of a Naturally Occurring Phytotoxic Element

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: 81

    Westscape Nursery proposes a Phase I project to establish a solution to the problem of rapid cheatgrass infestation in the western U.S. Preliminary studies have shown the ability of a naturally occurring elemental compound used in precise formulation to totally suppress and selectively control germinating and developing cheatgrass. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the US Forest Service ...

  9. Remediation of soil and water contaminated with phenolic compounds using peroxidase from the biofuel crop, Camelina sativa

    SBC: MONTANA GLUTEN FREE PROCESSORS, LLC            Topic: 84

    23. Non-Technical Summary Phenolic and aromatic pollutants are commonly released into soils, water and the atmosphere from industrial, agricultural and human processes. Such pollutants include chlorophenols, creosote, and endocrine & #8208;disrupting chemicals (EDCs) such as estrogen and bisphenol A. Phenols and aromatics are absorbed by inhalation, ingestion, and skin contact. They can cross the ...

  10. Phosphate fertilizer recovery from anaerobic acid digesters in sewage treatment plants.

    SBC: Nutrient Recovery And Upcycling Llc            Topic: 84

    Facing strict effluent limits, municipal wastewater treatment facilities are dealing with increasing costs of treating phosphorus in their waste. Current technologies are capable of sequestering the phosphorus in an unusable form or capturing only a fraction of it. Nutrient Recovery and Upcycling, LLC is working on a technology that can recover 44% more of the phosphorus from municipal waste than ...
