  1. Enhanced hemoglobin production in neonatal piglets with FCP, a low molecular weight iron chelate

    SBC: BIOLINK LIFE SCIENCES INC            Topic: 83

    The modernization of the US swine industry has been critical to the sustainability and global competitiveness of US swine production. At the same time, modernization has also required dramatic changes in animal management. By housing pigs indoors, producers have caused the unintended problem of iron deficiency anemia in neonatal pigs. This problem has been further exacerbated by advances in geneti ...

  2. Connection of electrodes on polymer based heating elements

    SBC: EXACTHEAT LLC            Topic: 813

    Current methods for heating seedling trays in the greenhouse envelope during colder climates include natural gas, geothermal as well as electric. The most common method of heating the greenhouse is with natural gas. Natural gas systems use a forced air commercial furnace to blow heated air onto the environment. There are two ways that the warm air can be directed from the furnace to the seedling. ...

  5. Farmhand Foods: Developing Innovative Business and Marketing Strategies that Create Market Opportunities for Small-Scale Livestock Producers

    SBC: FIRSTHAND FOODS            Topic: 812

    The US is rapidly losing small-to-medium scale farmers. In the 10 years between 2007 and 1997, the U.S. lost over 11,000 farms and over 32 million acres of farmland. To save and attract new farmers to agriculture requires that farming be a profitable enterprise and that farmers have access to wholesale markets. Industry trends in consolidation and vertical integration, particularly in the meat ind ...

  6. Enhancement of insecticidal peptide delivery

    SBC: VESTARON CORP            Topic: 82

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to enhance the delivery of a novel class of small insecticidal peptides. Insect damage to crops threatens global food security and as a result farmers grow millions of acres of crops with insecticides expressed as transgenes, and protect millions more acres with spray-on pesticides. The inevitable evolution of insect resistance to in ...

  8. Robust and Sustainable Utilization of Biofuel Co-Products to increase Biorefinery Diversification

    SBC: Piedmont Biofuels Industrial            Topic: 88

    Reducing foreign dependence on petroleum-based materials is a key to enhancing the US agricultural economy in the long-term. In recent years with the rising costs of petrochemical prices, there has been an increasing interest in renewable sourced specialty chemicals. Presently, less than 4 percent of U.S. chemicals sales are biobased in origin. A recent USDA analysis puts the potential biobased ch ...

  9. IP Hopper (for Moving Target Defense)

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: HSB0121002

    The IP Hopper is a moving target defense system that will use available network data and hopping algorithms to allow for constant IP address changing of both source and destination IP addresses. The use of "hopping" IP addresses will severely diminish an attacker's ability to attack any one target within a network. Utilizing IPv6 the IP Hopper will allow up to 340 undecillion (3.4 x 10 to the 38 ...

  10. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...
