  1. Photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter

    SBC: MOGENE GREEN CHEMICALS, LC            Topic: G

    MOgene Green Chemicals will develop a novel photosynthetic microorganism-based consortia to capture carbon and build soil organic matter. Intensive agriculture practices, including the removal of residual crops, use of synthetic fertilizer and herbicides, and tillage practices, have led to lost organic matter, increased greenhouse gas emissions, and reduced capacity of the soil to store carbon. If ...

  2. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  4. High-Spatial and Hyperspectral-Resolution Imaging for Bridge Inspection

    SBC: Aware Vehicles, Inc.            Topic: 180FH2

    High-Spatial and Hyperspectral-Resolution Imaging for Bridge Inspection 3/12/2018 Four out of 10 national bridges have been in service for 50 or more years which have undergone different levels of structural deficiency; other relatively newer bridges are constantly exposed to natural and artificial hazards and are likely structurally deficient in their life cycles. This SBIR project aims to de ...

  5. A System and Case Studies for Consolidating and Providing Access to Vehicle Safety-Oriented Datasets

    SBC: Expressive Analytics LLC            Topic: 180NH1

    A System and Case Studies for Consolidating and Providing Access to Vehicle Safety-Oriented Datasets 3/20/2018 In today’s world, data is power. A person using social media can take a seemingly random survey about puppy adoption, the demographic and preference data can be fed to political marketers and that person’s empathy toward puppies can help elect the next President of the United State ...

  6. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture Operations

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: InnovaPrep proposes to develop a rapid sample-to-answer monitoring system for detecting pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. An assessment of industry needs will include a kickoff meeting with NOAA and a visit to Toby Island Bay Oyster Farm. Following the assessment and report, a TRL-4 breadboard prototype system will be developed that will include the combination of sample ...

  7. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  10. Optical Sensing and Control of Polymer Processing

    SBC: Chemical ElectroPhysics Co. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NIST/industry consortium identified accurate temperature distribution measurements, as one of the major technical needs of polymer processors. NIST developed a way to make spatially resolved temperature measurements. Add a small amount of dye. During processing, focus UV illumination onto a small volume element of the process material. Use the ratio of the resulting fluorescent intensities at tw ...
