  1. Best Practices for IntelliDrive Enabled Mobile Application Development

    SBC: Mygistics Inc.            Topic: 102FH3

    The scope of this research initiative addresses what is best practice for delivering mobile applications while ensuring a safe, consistent experience given the differing communications standards, operating systems and hardware limitations of existing and prospective personal communications devices.  It is assumed the scope of this initiative is limited to exploration of applications for consumer devices only, not on-board OEM equipment/applications that may use a passenger's personal communications device to provide network connectivity.  However, the ability of a personal device

  2. Modification of Natural Fibers for use as Reinforcement in Advanced Composite Materials

    SBC: 3F, LLC            Topic: 88

    This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project is focused on the development of a chemical treatment for bast natural fibers called "In-Situ Polymeric Coating (IPC)". An IPC coating will enable kenaf, flax, jute and/or other bast natural fibers to replace fiberglass in thermoset structural composites. This concept involves an approach to A) solve the well known moisture a ...

  3. Biobased and Biodegradable Impact Modifier for Completely Renewable Bioplastic

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 88

    The now rapidly developing field of plastic materials based on renewable resources (bioplastics) provides tremendous opportunities to sustain and enhance the domestic plastics industries, the fourth largest manufacturing sector of the American economy. In addition, bioplastic materials are derived from agricultural materials and will help reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign oil Growth in the use ...

  4. Marketing a New Paradigm in Goldenseal Product Standardization

    SBC: BOTANIPHARM, LLC            Topic: 812

    Industry attempts to standardize the biological effects of natural herbal products range from the age old practice of ritualistic harvest at specific times of the day and/or year to the contemporary method of selecting chemical compounds as makers then measuring the potency of the product proportional to the quantity of the marker, the "more is better" concept. However, while chemical ma ...

  5. Optimizing Marketing Strategy and Consumer Connection for a Corn-Based Compostable To-Go Tea Filter in Mass Foodservice

    SBC: TEA SPOT, THE            Topic: 89

    Foodservice sales of tea in the U.S. are currently increasing at about 8% annually (Sundale, 2010). Within this sector, there is an increasing demand for loose leaf teas over traditionally low-quality tea bags. The Tea Spot has developed a patent pending tea filter, trademarked Brewlux, for the preparation and delivery of loose tea to-go in the mass foodservice market. Phase I USDA-NIFA sponsored ...

  6. Development of an integrated actuator for real time control of spray nozzle flow rate and droplet size spectrum

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Typical agrochemical sprayers use nozzles to atomize a liquid stream into droplets; these droplets then travel to the target. Nozzles may be selected to provide a range of droplet sizes, spray distribution patterns, and flow rates for a desired liquid material application. Spray distribution, droplet size, and flow rate are important considerations in achieving a high quality agrochemical applicat ...

  7. Less Expensive Biofuel Production Enabled by an Online Carbohydrate Monitor

    SBC: ADVANCED MICROLABS, LLC            Topic: 88

    The emerging cellulosic-based biofuels industry will benefit national security, lower Green House Gases (GHG) emissions, and bolster the American farmer through a reliable cash crop without necessarily stressing the American food supply. For the biomass industry to become sustainable, it is believed that production of ethanol must drop to $1.60/gallon in order to compete with foreign oil. Therefor ...

  8. Self Contained Sensor and Telemetry for Remote Water Quality Monitoring

    SBC: VORTANT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 84

    It is currently time consuming and expensive to install water quality monitoring stations to report data on water quality to researchers and monitoring agencies quickly and efficiently. In this project, we will develop the technology to improve the gathering and reporting of such data. The end product after commercialization of the results of this project will be a novel system that provides real- ...

  9. High efficiency axial flow pump

    SBC: Multi-duti Manufacturing, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Commercial-scale marine aquaculture has the potential to close the gap between an increasing demand for high quality seafood products and marine fisheries near maximum sustainable yields. Aside from the purchase of feed, energy costs are the highest source of continuous investment in the aquaculture industry. A high-efficiency pump that is specifically designed for use in recirculating aquaculture ...

  10. Production of a Value-Added Crop for Greater Human Nutrition

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: 85

    The U.S. population has a deficit of dietary calcium that represents a serious challenge to public health. Many consumers, however, find current methods of increasing dietary calcium to be inconvenient, costly, or unpalatable. This SBIR Phase II proposal seeks to increase calcium levels in lettuce, a specialty crop that already comprises a significant part of the average U.S. diet. Successful Phas ...
