  1. High Performance Signal Processing Tools with Fluctuation-Enhanced Sensing

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: 9020163R

    We propose a high performance library of signal processing tools that incorporate a newly developed technique known as fluctuation enhanced sensing (FES) to enhance the novel microsensor developed at NIST. Our goal is to improve the performance of the NIST sensor from two angles. One is to apply our existing proven algorithms to the NIST data. The other one is to incorporate advanced FES concept t ...

  2. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  3. Enhanced Security Content Automation Protocol Editor

    SBC: G2, INC.            Topic: 9040577R

    G2 proposes to develop an intuitive, interactive SCAP content creation and editing utility that will provide a user-friendly operating environment. The promise of security automation offers the opportunity for great advances in software assurance, security governance/reporting, and ongoing monitoring activities. Hindering that promise is the fact that current data exchange protocols are cumbersome ...

  4. New Drop-in Biofuel to Meet Renewable Fuel Standards

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The Energy Policy Act of 2005 established a minimum usage volume for renewable fuels. First-generation biofuels, predominately corn-derived ethanol, served to meet the initial goals of the program. Ethanol consumption in the US reached 10.6 billion gallons last year. Ethanol has many benefits as a biofuel, with the most important being that it is a naturally occurring product of the metabolic proc ...

  5. Novel Solar Concentrator Trough with Front-side Support Structure

    SBC: Invention House, LLC            Topic: 86

    Invention House LLC proposes to lower the initial cost of solar energy by minimizing the material used in the reflector of a concentrating trough. Placing the support structure on the front (sun) side and using a thin reflecting membrane will reduce material usage and cost by approximately 66%. The system is capable of producing boiling hot water for use in grain drying, food processing, and steri ...

  6. Targeting childhood obesity: Natural, low sugar snacks with concentrated fruit polyphenols

    SBC: Nutrasorb LLC            Topic: 85

    This Phase I SBIR project directly addresses two major nutritional needs - the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and metabolic syndrome in adults. Its objective is to validate a newly discovered Nutrasorb (TM) technology for the manufacture of a new generation of science-based, efficacious, shelf-stable, and tasty functional foods, specifically, natural, nutritious, low-sugar functional snacks ...

  7. Development of phage preparation for managing Salmonella in foods

    SBC: Intralytix Inc            Topic: 85

    Our project envisions developing a bacteriophage-based product, designated SalmoShield, for eliminating or significantly reducing contamination of poultry products (and eventually other foods) with Salmonella. Salmonellae continue to be one of the leading causes of foodborne disease worldwide, causing 1.3-1.4 million cases of salmonellosis annually in the USA, with associated costs estimated to be ...

  8. New Technology for Breeding Superior Tetraploid and Triploid Eastern Oysters

    SBC: 4CS BREEDING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    We presently manage the production of tetraploid oyster broodstock which is used by hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard to produce triploid oysters(triploid oysters are sterile and grow faster and larger than diploid oysters). Our tetraploid broodstock is not resistant to Dermo, a disease that frequently kills many eastern oysters. The research supported in this project will allow us to produce ...

  9. Polyvalent Vaccine to Protect Poultry from Avian Influenza

    SBC: MEDIGEN, INC.            Topic: 83

    In this Phase I SBIR application, we propose the trivalent influenza virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine that is not dependent on egg production and allows protection of poultry against multiple AI viruses. Our hypothesis is that expression of H5, H7, and H9 HA proteins will result in a trivalent vaccine that will contain HA proteins derived from three distinct AI viruses. We hypothesize that trival ...

  10. Enriching Rural American Farmers And Their Communities By Enabling Broadcasters To Power Transmitters With Wind Energy

    SBC: ROBERT MILLER CONSULTING LLC            Topic: 86

    Regions in the US with wind levels suitable for producing substantial renewable energy are located in the predominantly agricultural center of the country where population density and therefore demand for electrical power are low. Transport of power from wind farms in this section of the country to the coastal regions where population and the need for power are high is limited by the capacity of t ...
