  2. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  3. Feral Swine Population Control Enabled by An Intelligent Species-Specific Recognition System

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 83

    Feral swine (Sus scrofa) populations in the United States inflict serious and growing ecological and economic impacts to the farming and ranching ecosystems where their population continues to grow and invade new territory. These invasions ultimately impact the security, quality, and safety of the food supply and water resources coming from these regions. Recent and ongoing research is investigati ...

  4. GameteGuard: A Novel Method to Counteract Fertility Decline in Dairy Cattle

    SBC: MEMBRANE PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 83

    Fertility in artificially inseminated dairy cattle has declined as milk production has increased, and is one of the most costly challenges faced by today's dairy farmer. This fertility decline causes economic losses of >$300 million annually, losses due in part to damage incurred by sperm during the handling, cooling, freezing and thawing necessary for artificial insemination. For it is the qu ...

  5. A low-cost pathogen detection system is proposed comprising an incubator-reader unit as well as a low-cost consumable paper-based indicator test strip.

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. This project seeks to develop a complete system for easy pathogenic bacteria detection for the food supply chain. The proposed kit will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor). By delivering a complete pathogen detection solution, the kit will ena ...

  6. Validation of Segmented Flanges for Large Diameter Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    At sites ranging from Texas to Iowa, utility scale wind has become the lowest cost electricity source available, with recent prices well below 3cents/kWhr, lower than the cost of both coal and shale gas. This not only provides these communities with clean, low cost energy, it also provides a valuable "second crop" to the land owners in these areas. However, this opportunity is currently limited to ...

  7. Software Package for Material Model Evaluation

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I and II SBIR will develop a user-friendly, run-time efficient software package dedicated to fitting and evaluating material models used in finite element codes like LS-DYNA. The software package will consist of a pre-processor, a core driver, and a post-processor. The pre-processor will allow the user to specify the material model, model parameters, and desired load history. The dri ...

  10. Portland Cement Concrete Pavement Recycling

    SBC: Road Processing Resources Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RPR's Phase I contract proved the feasibility of concrete recycling based o a shock-producing hammer/anvil concept for fracturing and sizing aggregate and separating reinforcing steel into marketable scrap. The Phase II project will develop a portable self-propelled prototype to remove and process a 12 foot wide roadway at a rate of about a mile a day. This is called "Fast Track" highway removal ...
