  2. Q-Track Milk Operations Optimization System

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: 83

    Automated milking systems make dairy operations more efficient and less stressful for animals and farmers alike. However when a problem occurs, a suspect animal must be found and diagnosed quickly. This effort aims to evaluate the feasibility of a Q-Track Milk Operations Optimization (Q-MOO) system. The proposed Q-MOO system will employ a novel, low-frequency real-time location system (RTLS) that ...

  3. Real-time Detection of Food-borne Pathogens and Toxins

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: 85

    This project involves the development of a label-free detection technique for real-time and high-sensitivity detection of foodborne pathogens in meat processing and packaging facilities. It will be based on the development of highly specific and temporally-stable capture ligands for target pathogen detection. The detection technique will be based on measuring extremely small changes in the physica ...

  5. Novel Process for Production of Fatty Acids from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 88

    Environmental Benefits: The proposed technology relates to Climate change and sustainable energy. Fatty acids are currently produced from palm oil, 80% of which comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. Both these countries have finite land available and often times rainforests are destroyed to make way for palm plantations. This activity puts tremendous strain on ecological balance. Moreover, a signific ...

  6. Detect the Lesser Grain Borer in Stored Grain Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase II


    Grain production, storage, and processing are important industries. The LGB is a primary pest of cereal grains in the US and other parts of the world. It has been estimated that 5-10% of stored grain in developed countries and 35% of stored grain in developing countries is lost to insect damage. Estimates of the cost of grain loss due to insect, mold, and mycotoxin damage to the 15 billion bushels ...

  7. Ko's Journey: Empires

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project team is developing a prototype of a web-based pre-algebra math game for middle school students for use on tablet and personal computer platforms. The game, called Empires, will be story-based, strategic, and will enable peer-to-peer interactions. The games will be integrated within classroom practice. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the gaming prototype functio ...
