  1. A Mobile and Social Approach to Fostering Casual Carpooling in New Corridors

    SBC: Applied Engineering Management Corporation            Topic: 161FH1

    The technical objective of this Phase I project is to develop concept that demonstrates the viability of one or more tools and/or approaches to catalyze casual carpooling in a corridor where it does not exist or to improve casual carpooling in a corridor where it is present but underperforming. The proposed approach offers four unique components: (1) building off of the existing casual carpoolin ...

  5. An innovative mechanized system for transferring tissue-cultured plantlets to propagation trays to revolutionize vegetable and floral crop production

    SBC: Alaska AgriTech Inc.            Topic: 813

    Tissue culture is a well-established micropropagation method for many vegetable and floral crops. However, transferring plantlets from tissue culture vessels to the propagation trays is extremely time consuming and labor intensive. It is the major obstacle in crop production. The purpose of this projectis to design and produce a prototype which can efficiently transfer plantlets to propagation tra ...

  9. Pulsed Electric Field Application to Aquaculture: Predator Control and Product Extraction

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    It is not currently possible for microalgae processors to determine if Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) treatment of algae is a commercially-attractive proposition within their application when the literature contains such a wide range of reported PEF treatment conditions, leading to unclear and inconsistent baselines. A more controlled approach to determine the effects of PEF on algae is required, whe ...
