  3. Demonstration of Image-Based Change Detection Using a Prototype Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection System

    SBC: Noble Drone Services, LLC            Topic: 180FR4

    Demonstration of Image-Based Change Detection using a Prototype Drone-Based Track Safety Inspection 3/16/2018 Today’s prevailing methods of visual track inspection tend to be expensive, disruptive to operations, and have potential to be less thorough than preferred. Machine vision technology emerged in the rail sector over a decade ago to help alleviate these concerns; however, due to the un ...

  4. On-Farm Conversion of Solar Energy, Water, and Carbon Dioxide to Hydrocarbon Fuel

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Fossil fuels are the dominant energy source in the agriculture sector, comprising a large fraction of farming operational expenditures and emitting CO2 as a greenhouse gas. Despite recent market penetration, renewable energy adoption on farms remains low. Large capital costs, intermittency, and immobility of renewable energy prevents adoption on small and mid-size farms. A particularly detrimental ...

  5. Small and Mid-size Farm Efficiency Ecosystem

    SBC: Boston Labs Design and Development LLC            Topic: 812

    Small farms are critical to the futureof America. Small farms promote and sustain communities, create jobs, improve the health of the land and of the people who live on it. Currently small to mid-sized farms raising pasture-based livestock have been left to invent/build their own feeding/watering systemsand are at a disadvantage to large, fully automated, high-efficiency systems on large scale far ...

  7. Combined Fermentation-based Biosynthesis and Whole-Animal Screening Platform for Biobased Nematicide Discovery & Commercialization

    SBC: MANUS BIOSYNTHESIS, INC.            Topic: 813

    Plant parasitic nematodes cause over $125 billion USD a year in food production losses, or over 12% of all crops. Regulatory changes are resulting in fewer options for nematode control for farmers and requiring that new products be more sustainable in use. Optimized through evolutionary processes for biological activity, natural products (NPs) are a rich source of bioactive molecules that are biod ...

  8. On Demand Nitrate Production for Fertilizers

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 813

    Statement of the problem or opportunity:The conventional approach to industrially producing nitrogenous fertilizers helps feed about half of the world's population but is energy inefficient and requires extensive infrastructure. Together, the conventional Haber and Ostwald use about 1 - 2 % of the world's produced energy and produce almost 3 % of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. A r ...

  9. Cloud Effects Correction Of Drone-Collected Crop Imagery For Precision Agriculture

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The effect of cloud shadows on aerial imagery is an unsolved problem that has been identified by many operators of unmanned aerial vehicle (drone)-based remote sensing systems for agriculture. Shadows affect the ability to compare imagery, including multispectral and hyperspectral imagery (MSI and HSI), taken over periods of time, and the ability to quantify image data analytics, including NDVI an ...

  10. A novel approach to increasing and stabilizing bivalve shellfish seed supply: The mobile hatchery.

    SBC: Oyster Seed Holdings, Inc.            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture is a rapidly expanding agricultural industry in the United States, with landings more than doubling in the last 5 years and creating many new jobs. Culture techniques and the water-filtering nature of oysters make them a very low impact crop with arguably, a net benefit to the environment (a unique trait compared to other intensively farmed proteins). Comprised of salt and br ...
