  1. Detect the Lesser Grain Borer in Stored Grain Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 813

    The long term goal of this project is to eliminate insect pests from the US food and feed supply with a sensor device, minimize exposure of humans and animals to residual chemicals or insecticides, and reduce financial losses due to grain damage. The lesser grain borer (LGB) is a devastating, long-lived pest of stored wheat, corn and other cereal grains in the US and other parts of the world. Adul ...

  2. Monitor and Control the Formosan Subterranean Termite in Forest Resources Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I

    SBC: SENSOR DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: 81

    The Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus, FST), an exotic, cryptic pest, causes about $1 billion damage in the US annually (Lax and Osbrink). Unlike native species, this aggressive termite attacks living trees, potentially threatening southern forests and the urban/forest interface. Potential forest damage is twofold: direct damage or death to trees and indirect disruption or disp ...

  3. Novel method for improving algae harvesting

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: 87

    Algae are one of the most, if not the most, productive biomass crops known and have a photosynthetic efficiency almost twice that of the most productive terrestrial crop, sugarcane. However, algae are not without disadvantages relative to terrestrial crops, and do require their own novel technical solutions. Characteristically, microalgae are aquatic, very small (1 to 10 micron diameter), very dil ...

  4. Development of effective non-antibiotic dry-off agents for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    This project addresses priority areas of 1) Animal Productivity (in both conventional and alternative production systems), 2) Animal Health and Well-Being, and 3) Food Safety and Environmental Mitigation, as described in the NIFA Program Announcement for Phase I SBIR applications. 1) Productivity: Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, dis ...

  5. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Under this STTR Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will apply novel Plasma-shell technology and expertise with gas plasma systems to shield and protect BMDS Radar. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating shells. When energy is applied across the shell, the gas inside ionizes into a plasma. Theory of plasma-electromagnetic (EM) field interaction shows that, under appropriate conditions, pl ...

  6. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...

  7. Sensor Resource Management

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Today"s Ballistic Missile Defense networks consist of many different types of sensors and platforms, and given the expanded focus of MDA on theater and regional missile defense where multiple"raids"can be launched from different sites toward numerous targets, it is crucial that they can be dynamically tasked and deployed effectively in real-time to realize their full potential in achieving overall ...

  8. Materials and Life Cycle Sustainability for Structural Missile Applications

    SBC: Performance Polymer Solutions Inc.            Topic: MDA10020

    This Phase I Small Business Innovative Research Program will develop and demonstrate the technology to produce large-scale, high temperature, lightweight composite missile structures for transition to a fielded weapons system where weight minimization and resistance to high temperature exposure is critical. Performance Polymer Solutions Inc."s composite system has the ability to survive in extrem ...

  9. Advanced Reentry Vehicle and Wake Models

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    At hypersonic flow conditions, the flow field around reentry vehicles is ionized, resulting in electro-optical emissions, detectable radar cross-sections, and attenuation of signals transmitted through the plasma. Ablative heat shields may further increase the levels of electrons in the plasma around the hardbody and in the wake. We propose to extend an existing high-fidelity computational fluid d ...

  10. Photonic Multi-Beam Receive-Only Arrays

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA10026

    We propose to define a dynamically reconfigurable photonics-based system to efficiently collect, down-convert, distribute, and selectively combine the return signals from multiple array elements to a set of digital processors. Electronic signals from the array elements will modulate optical carrier signals. With an appropriate choice of optical carrier signal and photonic architecture, the signals ...
