  1. Multi-Parameter Discrete Sample Carbon Analyzer

    SBC: Sunburst Sensors, LLC            Topic: 822

    A Multi-Parameter Inorganic Carbon Measurement System

    SBIR Phase II 2007 Department of Commerce
  2. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this SBIR project the proposed commuter railcar loading concept was developed in detail and its operation was simulated in order to demonstrate feasibility and to quantify the reduction in station dwell time compared to other railcar loading operations. Feasibility was demonstrated. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers, regardless of mobility, from a wide r ...

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project is aimed at helping protect crop productivity by providing a means of rapidly assessing the health of bee colonies used for pollination. We propose research leading to the design of a hand-held device that could scan a honey bee colony, and quickly indicate the condition of that colony. The increase in efficiency of examining colonies for pollination, for honey production, for queen r ...

  4. An Automated Tool for Deriving FARSITE Canopy Fuel Parameters from Airborne LiDAR Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HyPerspectives proposes to address a serious obstacle to wildfire management by providing a software solution roadmap for the creation of crown fuel layers for the FARSITE fire simulator. By doing so we will connect recent advances in LiDAR technology with an end-user community who is in need of LiDAR-derived fuel data products. HyPerspectives will draw upon its successful experience in LiDAR soft ...

  5. Buhl Idaho Ethanol Project: Integrating low value starch feed stocks with energy efficient starch hydrolysis


    "This renewable energy project will complete the first phase of developing an innovative approach to a commercial ethanol plant in Buhl Idaho. The plant will use barley as a feedstock, supplemented by available sources of low value starch. Barley is the best crop for ethanol production in local agronomic systems and the use of low value and waste materials will significantly reduce feedstock cost. ...

  6. Low Cost Production of Yeast from Heat-stabilized Defatted Rice Bran

    SBC: Nutraceutical Innovations, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project focuses on the economic production of yeast in an automated bio-reactor using rice bran as an energy and nutrient source. Rice bran is an under-utilized, abundantly available, low-cost co-product of the rice milling process and is currently used almost exclusively as an inexpensive additive in animal feed. The use of heat-stabilized defatted rice bran (HDRB) for the production ...

  7. Controlling Varroa Mites in the Honey Bee, Apis Mellifera

    SBC: S.A.F.E R&D            Topic: N/A

    Varroa jacobsoni (Oudemans) (=V.destructor) is a parasitic mite of honey bee Apis mellifera (L.), that has had a catastrophic effect in honey bee populations, commercial pollination and the beekeeping industry across the U.S. and worldwide. The objective is to develop alternative methodologies to control Varroa through systemic and contact introduction of essential oils through a unique delivery s ...

  8. Novel Use of Plant Tissue Culture for Site-adapted, Acid Soil, Heavy Metal Tolerant, Native Plants Useful for Mine Land Revegetation.

    SBC: SMK PLANTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for native plants tolerant of low soil pH and elevated heavy metal concentrations to revegetate acid mine land in the Rocky Mountain west. Acid/ heavy metal tolerant (AHMT) plants are necessary because of the immense area of acid mine land that needs reclamation. Mining wastes have contaminated 3,346 miles of rivers in six Western states, including 1,118 in Montana. It will cost bi ...

  9. Development of a selective biosensor for detecting organophosphate pesticide expo

    SBC: ATERIS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) This SBIR project is in response to the call for the development of field-deployable or wearable personal sensors for monitoring point-of-contact exposures to airborne chemicals through biosample testing. The broad objective of this proposal is to develop an extremely sensitive and selective biosensor device capable of detecting and discriminating protein ...

    SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Health and Human Services
  10. Engineered Spores as Fluorogenic Biological Indicators for Sterility Testing

    SBC: BCR DIAGNOSTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): BCR Diagnostics, Inc. (BCR) has recently developed and patented a technology platform for engineering fluorogenic functionality into living Bacillus spores. Fluorogenic spores (F-spores) produced at BCR appear to be physiologically identical to normal spores except for performing as self-reporters of initial germination events. ...
