  1. Monitoring Active Region Development on the Far Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841

    Magnetic regions in the Sun’s outer atmosphere exert major impacts on space weather in the near-Earth environment. Near-term impacts at Earth are predominantly due to magnetic regions in the Sun’s near hemisphere; however, because the Sun rotates, mag- netic regions in the far hemisphere cross into the near hemisphere with little warning—except for our ability to monitor the Sun’s far hemi ...

  2. A Mobile and Social Approach to Fostering Casual Carpooling in New Corridors

    SBC: Applied Engineering Management Corporation            Topic: 161FH1

    The technical objective of this Phase I project is to develop concept that demonstrates the viability of one or more tools and/or approaches to catalyze casual carpooling in a corridor where it does not exist or to improve casual carpooling in a corridor where it is present but underperforming. The proposed approach offers four unique components: (1) building off of the existing casual carpoolin ...

  3. Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection Devices for Transit Buses

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: 161FT1

    This SBIR proposal presents a robust and cost-effective pedestrian and cyclist detection and collision warning system for transit buses. It uses inexpensive but robust sensors and incorporates state-of-the-art object detection techniques to enable effective pedestrian and cyclist detection near transit buses in different environmental conditions. The proposed collision warning system exploits meas ...

  5. Nitrogen Fixing Endophytes for Improved Crop Growth

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: 82

    This project is focused on the development and demonstration of technology to reduce nitrogen fertilizer usage while maintaining yields and increasing resistance to environmental stress. The technology is suitable for areas of intensive agricultural crop production as well as the production of biomass crops on marginal lands for sustainable biofuel and bioenergy production. The development and dem ...

  6. Bio-phenols production from lignocellulosic biomass

    SBC: Washington Bio-Oils Inc.            Topic: 88

    More than 95% of phenol used today is derived from petroleum based benzene by cumene process. The proposed research stems from our previous studies showing activated carbon as catalysts can convert oxygenated compounds generated from pyrolysis into high value and high purity phenols. We believe it was the first observation that carbon catalyst can effectively catalyze lignocellulose biomass conver ...

  7. AlphaBear

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team developed AlphaBear, a mobile gaming app where students are challenged to spell words which are then used to create humorous sentences. This project will develop and test a prototype for use specifically by English Learners. The prototype will formatively assess students' vocabulary, adjust gameplay to the skill levels of individual students, and provide ...

  8. Novel Assay System and Analysis Algorithm in Detecting RNA Editing Events and Linked Splicing Isoforms

    SBC: Celetrix LLC            Topic: NIDA

    Abstract RNA editing is a process in which the genome encoded information is altered in RNA RNA editing is an efficient way to increase RNA complexity thereby fine tuning both gene function and dosage Adenosine to Inosine A to I editing is the most common type of RNA editing known in animals The cellular machinery recognizes inosine as guanosine so A to I editing of codons and splicing sign ...
