  2. Engineered Strain for Bioconversion of Food Waste to Fuels

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A17AT011

    The proposed strategy in this STTR proposal for bioconversion of food waste to butanol uses the well-described Clostridium acetobutylicum organism to convert the carbohydrate to the fuel molecule butanol. Based on our teams many years of work with butanol formation and genetic studies of the organism and the advancement of recently developed genetic methods, the team will develop a set of genetic ...

  7. Spectrum Analyzer Using Spintronic Radar Arrays

    SBC: Oleandr Scientific LLC            Topic: A16AT016

    We propose to develop a prototype of a novel spintronic spectrum analyzer using arrays of nano-scale magnetic spin-torque detectors. The operation of the proposed spectrum analyzers is based on the recently discovered effects of spin-transfer torque and spin-diode effects in nano-scale magnetic multilayered elements, the fabrication of which became possible due to the recent advances in nano-fa ...

  9. Robust Terrain-Adaptive Vehicle Planning and Control

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A14AT018

    Autonomous or teleoperated navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) is difficult even in benign environments due to challenges associated with perception, decision making, and human-machine interaction, among others. In environments with rough, sloped, slippery, and/or deformable terrain, the difficulty of the navigation problem increases dramatically. In this effort, Quantum Signal, LLC, Un ...

  10. Hydrogel-based Long-duration ultrasound wound dressing to enhance cellular regeneration and rapid wound closure

    SBC: Zetroz Systems LLC            Topic: A14AT016

    Therapeutic ultrasound is a common modality for pain management and rehabilitation therapy which has been clinically utilized for 60 years. Specifically designed ultrasonic devices for accelerated healing and wound site debridement are generally hand-operated bulky systems. As such, they are used on a case-by-case basis with irregular therapeutic treatment regimens dependent on patient access and ...
