  1. Development of a Nest Attractant for the Blue Orchard Bee

    SBC: AGPOLLEN, LLC            Topic: 82

    Modern agriculture has relied almost exclusively on the honey bee for managed pollination services. Honey beekeepers currently face numerous problems including Varroa mites, American foulbrood, Africanized bees and most recently colony collapse disorder. These problems have led to a shorter supply of colonies and consequently higher rental prices in the United States. It is sensible to have more t ...

  2. Agaricus mushroom production utilizing local substrate materials

    SBC: OCR INC            Topic: 812

    Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms are not produced in Hawaii. Increasing the production of locally grown food products would not only re ...

  3. PRESERVATION OF BIOPROCESS ALGAE FOR CERTIFIED SEEDSTOCK

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: 88

    The scope of this SBIR project is to develop the Kuehnle AgroSystem's technical innovation of live algae preservation to provide room temperature storage options for microalgae that are preferred for specific aquaculture and biofuels applications. A major bottleneck in developing algae biomass for the aquaculture and cleantech industry is absence of quality bulk live algae product. Live algae conc ...

  4. Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative for Rural Families

    SBC: LYNN B WILSON            Topic: 86

    Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive oral health than the general population. Low-income families in rural communities experience even g ...

  5. Handheld IR Raman Spectroscopy for Rapid Chemical Identification

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: CBD08102

    In Phase I, Aerius Photonics demonstrated Raman spectroscopy at 785 nm, 980 nm, and 1064 nm, with only 1064 nm-based excitation showing a reduction in fluorescence. In addition, Aerius Photonics and partner Ahura Scientific, demonstrated a breadboard version of an InGaAs-based Raman spectrometer to assess any engineering challenges. By the end of a Phase III, Aerius proposes to develop a handheld ...

  6. Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System

    SBC: SPECTRUM PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD09108

    Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and com ...

  7. Durable Anti-fog Coatings for Contoured Plastic Substrates Using Nanoparticles with Tunable Size and Surface Chemistry

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD09101

    Currently fielded respiratory protective systems in the Joint Services General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) program degrade in visual performance capability in extreme hot and cold environments. Optical and mechanical properties of existing anti-fog coatings also diminish when subjected to cleaning/sanitization operations. To address these needs, InnoSense LLC (ISL), in Phase I, has combined nanomaterials ...

  8. An Enhanced Quarter-Sized Optical NEMS Based Methyl Salicylate Sensor System (MS3)

    SBC: IMAGINATIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: CBD09103

    Building on our successful Phase I work our Phase II objectives are to complete development and integration of our two proposed sensors into an unprecedented self-confirming MeS detection system further refining our ability to meet key requirements identified in Phase I. More specifically, we will develop a NEMS based MeS sensor system complete with a telemetry system and/or a remote logging, data ...

  9. Dielectrophoretic Microfluidic Protein Analysis System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD09104

    To address the U.S. Army CBD need for a low-cost, universal, robust, and fieldable device for rapid, reproducible identification of protein variants from biological samples with high throughput, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Dielectrophoretic Microfluidic Protein Analysis (DiMiPA) system based on an electrodeless dielectrophoresis-based, continuous-flow protein separa ...

  10. A Reverse Venturi Atomization Chamber

    SBC: ARENA PESTICIDE MANAGEMENT            Topic: N/A

    Spray drift is one of the most significant issues presently facing agricultural applicators. Agricultural applicators are committed to the management of chemical drift and take responsibility on a daily basis for making good decisions in the field. Material that drifts off-site is material that is not applied to the target crop or pest and represents both wasted time and wasted material. This equa ...
