  1. STTR Phase I: A MultiObjective Bilevel Approach to Highway Alignment Optimization

    SBC: Amar Transportation Research & Consulting, Inc.            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is aimed at developing a multi-objective bi-level approach to highway alignment optimization. Unlike the rapid developments in the automobile and construction industries road design is still carried out in the traditional manner which is more than 50 years old. The increasing highw ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Novel Production Platform for Synthesis of Toxic Enzymes

    SBC: APC BIOTECHNOLOGY SERVICES, INC.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I research develops a novel bioprocess platform for the synthesis of toxic enzymes as inactive pro-enzymes in bacteria that can subsequently be activated via simple pH and/or temperature shifts. Recombinant enzymes for industrial synthetic applications or pharmacologic replacement therapies can be very difficult and expensive to produce in large quanti ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Engineering Clostritrial Fermentation for Biobutanol Production

    SBC: BIOPROCESSING INNOVATIVE COMPANY INC            Topic: EO

    Intellectual Merit: This STTR project will develop novel engineered Clostridia strains for fermentation to economically produce butanol as a biofuel from sugars derived from starchy and lignocellulosic biomass. Butanol is an important industrial solvent and potentially a better transportation fuel than ethanol. Recent rising oil prices and limited petroleum resources have generated high interest i ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays

    SBC: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...

  5. STTR PHASE I: Simple Desulfurizing Component Enables Fuel Processing of Sulfur-laden Logistic Fuels for Fuel Cells

    SBC: CATACEL CORP            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will investigate the technical and commercial feasibility of coating metal foils with a solid sorbent so that they act as a desulfurizing component for pre-treatment of sulfur-laden liquid fuels. The coated foils will be inserted into a small heat exchanger that acts as a platform unit for conversion of liquid fuels to hydrogen for fue ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Engineering of Non-leaching Antibacterial Surfaces and Textiles

    SBC: CCL Biomedical Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I proposes to develop antibacterial surfaces and textiles for commercial applications. A series of novel potent dendrimer biocides has been identified, which can be used alone to kill microorganisms, or bound to polymer substrates to produce non-leaching biocidal polymers. The aim of this program is to chemically graft these potent microbiolog ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Improved Addressing Speed of Plasma-sphere Arrays

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I research project will investigate the feasibility of improving the addressing speed of Plasma-sphere. Plasma-spheres are hollow transparent shells that encapsulate a selected pressurized gas. When a voltage is applied across the shell, the gas ionizes and glows. Plasma-spheres are applied to flexible, electrically addressable arrays to form Plasma-sp ...
