  1. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  2. Power-Dense Electrostatic Rotating Machines

    SBC: C-Motive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT007

    Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies propos ...

  3. Ethylene Permeation in Control of Fruit Ripening

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    All fruits and vegetables generate ethylene.Even low concentrations of ethylene accelerate fruitripening.A process that removes ethylene as it is generated can play a central role in maintainingthe freshness of fruits and vegetables.Hence much effort and significant cost normally go into thecontrol of the atmosphere and temperature to which these fruits and vegetables are exposed largelyto reduce ...

  4. Intelligent Mapping of the Farm Using Low-Cost, GPS-Enabled Cameras During Existing Farm Activities

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 812

    With the advent of precision agriculture the way we farm is changing. Technologies exist to addprecision to all aspects of the farm; however these practices all require information that is notreadily available to the small farm. Current field mapping technology has a financial and timecommitment that puts it out of reach of small farms. The aim of the proposed research is to enableprecision agricu ...

  5. Combating potato soft rot with free-living phagocytes

    SBC: AMEBAGONE, INC.            Topic: 82

    AmebaGone Inc is developing a novel microbial pesticide for the prevention of soft rot in potatotubers. Each year an estimated 15-30% of the U.S. potato crop is lost to soft rot representing amarket loss of $0.57B-$1.13B. There is currently no effective treatment available for this disease.Our solution is a biological treatment that uses the predatory power of Dictyostelids ("Dicty" forshort) inst ...

  6. Combatting potato soft rot with free-living phagocytes

    SBC: AMEBAGONE, INC.            Topic: 82

    Our need:Potatoes are the fourth most consumed crop in the world, after rice, wheat, and corn. According to 2016 data from the USDA, potatoes are also one of the most important agricultural crops in the world and are the leading vegetable produced in the USA. In 2016 alone, 44B pounds of potatoes were produced in the USA with a production value of $3.9B. Moreover, potatoes readily adapt to a wide ...

  7. SWEdar- an Automated Low-Power Snow Water Equivalent Sensor

    SBC: Flat Earth Inc            Topic: 84

    Intellectual Merit: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will assist in producing the next-generation approach for monitoring critical water resources stored in the seasonal snowpack. Agriculture is a significant user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Wes ...

  8. Recycling Nutrients from Dairy Effluent into NOP-Compliant Agricultural Inputs

    SBC: Midwestern Bioag, Inc.            Topic: 84

    The consumer demand for organic food is growing faster than the supply. This is particularly true for large-scale row crops that go into staple foods and into animal feeds. As a result, about 80% of the primary organic grain supply is imported. Less-pronounced, but similar imbalances exist for specialty crops. Midwestern BioAg (MBA) has been supporting conventional and organic farmers for 35 years ...

  9. Creating an advanced, economical, eco-friendly measurement of snow water equivalence using observed GNSS signals beneath the snow

    SBC: NWB SENSORS INC.            Topic: 84

    The purpose for this research is to develop a Snow Water Equivalency (SWE) sensor that will broaden our understanding/management of snow and the water we receive from it.Importance of the ProblemSnowpack is very important to the United States' water budget with 85% of freshwater runoff originating as snowmelt in the west, and nine significant floods of the 20th century were directly related to ...

  10. Image Enhancement and Machine Learning for Improving Man-Portable Targeting Systems

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N172102

    Modern DoD applications are benefiting from the proliferation of EO/IR sensor technology. As imagers become cheaper and smaller, they are being more widely deployed for a variety of scenarios. This trend is exemplified by the Navys Future Targeting System (FTS), which will provide laser designation, laser spot imaging, and some target location functions in a single 5.5-pound unit, replacing discre ...
