  1. Improved Decision Support Tools for State of Good Repair

    SBC: VIASIM            Topic: 131FT2

    Every asset ages. Pipes, roads, computers, cars, etc. This fact is inevitable. And, as a result of the aging process, every asset suffers a degradation in its intended capability or performance over time. Yet every day, millions of people in the U.S. get up in the morning expecting that they will be able to travel to work, drink clean water, use the Internet, and so on. It usually takes a catastro ...

  2. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  5. Pathogen Detection and Monitoring from Induced VOCs of Citrus Varietals

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 813

    High value fruit and nut crops are a vital component of agricultural productivity in the United States. Almost 80% of this economic sector is located in the Pacific Northwest (Washington and Oregon), California, and the Southeast (Texas and Florida). Orchards and vineyards in these regions provide healthful fruits and nuts to the nation and for export, support local tourism, and generate economic ...

  6. On-board Electrochemical Oxygen Generator for Live Shipments of Wild Seafood and Aquaculture Products

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 87

    U.S. live fish exports are growing and have further potential for growth. In 2009 live fish U.S. exports were on the order of $44 million. In 2012, there was unique opportunity in the live eel export market and there were reports of $100-150 million in exports in that species alone. The overall goal of this project is to provide active oxygenation during the transportation of live aquaculture prod ...

  7. Superior Nutrient Availability, Reduced Metabolic Waste and Increased Energy Efficiency in Aquafeeds

    SBC: NAVITA PREMIUM FEED INGREDIENTS            Topic: 87

    In November 2011 the worlds human population reached 7 billion. Concurrent role shifts in world economies (e.g., competition for seafood products with China) make it necessary for aquaculture to grow at a pace much faster than previously estimated. In addition, the American seafood trade deficit now exceeds $10 billion per year. Clearly, we are at a point when new technologies are desperately need ...

  8. Fluorescent DNA Aptamer Test Strips for more sensitive and rapid assessment of food safety.

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    Most commercially available antibody-based test strips for the detection of foodborne pathogenic bacteria are rapid (work in minutes), but not very sensitive. Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) aims to improve the sensitivity of such test strips by using higher affinity and more specific DNA aptamers in place of the antibodies. In addition, OpTech will couple its aptamer-based test stri ...

  9. Wide Area Hydrogen Sulfide Monitoring System for Agricultural Enterprises

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 84

    This sensor development project is responsive to the societal challenge areas of 1) Climate Change and 2) Sustainable Bioenergy. Hydrogen sulfide emissions from agricultural enterprises, especially those associated with large animal feeding lots, can impact the climate. A monitoring system to better map the spatial and temporal distribution of hydrogen sulfide emissions can be factored into local ...

  10. Electrochemical, Multi-gas Air Quality Monitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Animal agriculture is a $100 billion per year industry in the United States (Copeland, 2010). Livestock and poultry are raised on an estimated 1.3 million farms throughout the nation. About 238,000 of these farms are considered animal feeding operations (AFO)-agricultural enterprises where animals are kept and raised in confinement that result in emissions to the air of particles and gases such as ...
