  2. Using Alternative Energy to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Production in the Transportation Sector

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DYNAMICS INC            Topic: 142OS1

    IDI is proposing an electrically assisted e-bike system, designed to increase the usage of bicycles for daily commute, specifically targeting areas and demographics with below average bicycle usage, and adverse weather conditions. This design is intended for usage alongside traditional bikes in bike share programs across the country. The primary benefit is attract those otherwise unwilling or unab ...

  3. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...

  5. Advanced DPP technology for rapid animal-side detection of bovine tuberculosis

    SBC: CHEMBIO DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Bovine tuberculosis (TB), a zoonotic disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis, continues to plague the cattle industry in the United States (US) and worldwide. Current diagnostic methods are inadequate; therefore, improved tests are urgently needed for disease control/eradication. The goal of the proposed research is to develop a simple, rapid, accurate, and cost-effective blood test for bovine TB in ...

  6. Commercialization of a Synthetic, Live-attenuated FMDV Vaccine

    SBC: Codagenix Inc.            Topic: 83

    Foot and mouth disease is distributed world-wide in over 100 countries, and has proven to be devastating to livestock of cloven-hoofed animals such as cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, and buffaloes. Similar to other members of the Picornaviridae family, there is considerable natural genetic variation in the FMDV population found in nature. There are seven serotypes of the foot and mouth disease virus, ...

  7. ADVANCED GRADING FOR IMPROVEMENT AND RELIABILITY OF ROUND TIMBER DESIGN VALUES

    SBC: Whole Trees, LLC            Topic: 81

    This project is the last piece of the round timber production puzzle for WholeTrees Structures' SBIR-funded research initiatives: improved selection and grading procedures for round pole timber, building on ASTM visual grading rules for poles and piles, but for structural spanning applications. This research project is based on a solid body of prior work (Wood et al. 1965; Goodman et al. 1981; ...

  8. Cultivation of Filamentous Green Algae for High Value Industrial Products

    SBC: ALGAXPERTS LLC            Topic: 87

    SummaryAlgae are heterogeneous groups of mostly photosynthetic organisms that are found in virtually every aquatic environment on earth. They exert influence on flux of carbon dioxide, generate large fraction of oxygen present in the earth's atmosphere and produce enormous quantity of organic carbon. Humans have long recognized the value of algae as a source of food and non-food products, and ...

  9. A Novel Portable Detection Device for Neonicotinoids: Surveillance of their Presence and Link to Bee Colony Collapse Disorder

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 813

    There is a growing body of evidence that neonicotinoid based insecticides are partly responsible for the so-called bee colony collapse disorder in which entire colonies of Western honey bees die off. However, many experts believe that more scientific research is needed before supporting a ban of these pesticides to take them off the market. Seacoast is developing an innovative analytical device to ...

  10. Bt resistance management: software for research, education, and outreach

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: 813

    Bt crops offer tremendous potential benefits to growers, the environment, seed companies, and society. The risk of pest resistance threatens to reduce the benefits of Bt technology, including its profitability. Mathematical models of evolution provide the main tool guiding insect resistance management (IRM). IRM models are used to quantify and communicate the benefits of stewardship practices. The ...
