  2. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurement in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    The topic (8.2.2R) requires the capability for enabling high sensitive/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. The proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of large backgrounds calcium concentration. The sensor approach will use the benefi ...

  3. A Single Aperture Dual-Wavelength Dual-Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and the world economy. From an average of $10B annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry, which is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now casting and forecasting could prevent the ...

  4. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & V) converts oxygen from the surrounding atmosphere into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches ...

  5. Immunologically cross reactive proteins for broadly protective Campylobacter chicken vaccines

    SBC: PATHOVACS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Human Campylobacter disease caused by the foodborne pathogens, Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli, is a huge public health problem globally. The economic burden of this disease, which ranges from mild self-limiting diarrhea to devastating neurological complications, in the United States alone is estimated at more than USD 8 billion annually. Broiler chickens harbor these pathogens in thei ...

  6. Energy Efficiency for Rural Communities

    SBC: KRELL ENERGY EFFICIENCY            Topic: 86

    Rural communities, comprised of both residential and commercial buildings, are struggling to maintain their populations and the vitality of their downtown districts and schools. They are spending significant dollars on energy bills and wasting as much as 25% of that energy. Buildings accounted for 81% ($294 billion) of total dollars spent on U.S. electricity in 2008 and consumed more than 50% of t ...

  7. Sustainable Green Diesel Production: Upgrading Biomass Waste Pyrolysis Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The explosive growth of biofuels in recent years has shown that there is great potential for biomass to be a raw material for the production of transportation fuels. Possibly the most economical means to produce biofuels is by the liquification of biomass (fast pyrolysis) and subsequent upgrading. This method is also potentially the most sustainable, provided the feedstock is produced sustainably. ...

  8. Novel Air Processor for the Removal of Ammonia Gas From CAFO Air Streams

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 84

    In this proposal, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) outlines the development of a system for remediating ammonia (NH3) produced in large confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The animal agricultural industry is coming under increased scrutiny due to the large volume of pollutants, in particular ammonia, produced in its operations. PSI's proposed remediation system for NH3 utilizes an adsorbe ...

  10. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Wind turbines have reshaped rural America by boosting incomes, creating jobs, and harnessing local energy sources. However, conventional tower-mounted wind turbines have three main problems that limit their potential: (1) only about 12 percent of communities have strong enough ground winds to make projects economical; (2) installations are too expensive, requiring a crane and concrete foundation; ...
