  1. Monitoring Active Region Development on the Far Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841

    Magnetic regions in the Sun’s outer atmosphere exert major impacts on space weather in the near-Earth environment. Near-term impacts at Earth are predominantly due to magnetic regions in the Sun’s near hemisphere; however, because the Sun rotates, mag- netic regions in the far hemisphere cross into the near hemisphere with little warning—except for our ability to monitor the Sun’s far hemi ...

  2. Autonomous Aerial Survey of Wildfire Burn Areas to Aid Post-Fire Damage Assessments of Soil Resources and Mitigation Efforts for Watershed Recovery

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 81

    for clearing out accumulations of small timber and ground vegetation. However, generations of controversial forest land management practices coupled with global warming trends have yielded wildfires that burn hotter and longer. This beyond ordinary level of devastation can have long lasting effects on the health of soil and watershed resources. The ability to ameliorate these impacts has direct ec ...

  3. Boring deterrent compounds to enhance mycoinsecticides for bark beetle control

    SBC: MONTANA BIOAGRICULTURE INC.            Topic: 81

    Montana BioAgriculture Inc., MBAI, is developing fungal insect pathogens as mycoinsecticides for bark beetles. With climate change and globalization, outbreaks of both native and introduced species of bark beetles are occurring at an unprecedented scale; killing trees on millions of acres of forest and causing substantial economic loss in timber harvest and in value of both private and public fore ...

  4. Development of an automated wastewater holding pond monitoring system for early detection of unintended sub-surface discharge.

    SBC: AgraTek, LLC            Topic: 84

    The goal of this project is to develop a stand-alone Automated Groundwater Contamination Monitor capable of collecting daily measures of soil and groundwater quality near the perimeter of earthen ponds used to store animal and industrial wastewater. Monitoring wells, mandated by most regulatory agencies, have been shown to be incapable of such rapid and reliable detection and do not offer producer ...

  5. Creating an advanced, economical, environmentally friendly measurement of snow water equivalence using observed GPS signals beneath the snowpack

    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 of snow and the water we receive from it. Current methods used to measure SWE are labor intensive, utilize hazardous antifreezes, economically prohibitive, and/or vulnerable to the environment. These limitations greatly restrict the number of locations where SWE measurements are ma ...

  6. Bio-phenols production from lignocellulosic biomass

    SBC: Washington Bio-Oils Inc.            Topic: 88

    More than 95% of phenol used today is derived from petroleum based benzene by cumene process. The proposed research stems from our previous studies showing activated carbon as catalysts can convert oxygenated compounds generated from pyrolysis into high value and high purity phenols. We believe it was the first observation that carbon catalyst can effectively catalyze lignocellulose biomass conver ...

  7. Seed-based lipase and phospholipase production for enzymatic biodiesel

    SBC: INFINITE ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 88

    The manufacture of large volumes of inexpensive biological tools (enzymes) for the production of biodiesel provides a market opportunity for the plant production system. Biodiesel predominantly is commercially manufactured through treatment of oil or fat with alcohols and chemical catalysts such as sodium hydroxide. Although this method works, it can be commercially profitable only when the used o ...

  8. Sustainable Indoor Growing System (SIGS) for the production of grafted vegetable plants prototype

    SBC: Grafted Growers, LLC.            Topic: 813

    The problem: Currently in the US, there is not an affordable way to fulfill the need of high quality grafted vegetable transplants for field growers and hydroponic greenhouse growers. The key issues that intensify the problem are: 1) the large number of seedlings needed in a single batch (US large farming operations), 2) the current high price of grafted plants and 3) the proximity of seedling sup ...

  9. AlphaBear

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team developed AlphaBear, a mobile gaming app where students are challenged to spell words which are then used to create humorous sentences. This project will develop and test a prototype for use specifically by English Learners. The prototype will formatively assess students' vocabulary, adjust gameplay to the skill levels of individual students, and provide ...
