  1. Self-Sustaining, Intelligent Pavement Systems

    SBC: Solar Roadways            Topic: 091FH5

    As stated in the solicitation, the pavement infrastructure in the US covers a large surface area and requires intensive energy and natural resources. Vehicles that travel over these pavements are also resource intensive. Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with modular Solar Road Panels: structurally-engineered solar panels that can be driven upon. The roadwa ...

  2. Modular recovery and processing food waste for optimal nutritional value

    SBC: TUBS, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and EPA Deputy Administrator Stan Meilburg recently announced (9/16/15) the first ever national food waste reduction goal, callling for a reduction of 50% by 2030."The United States enjoys the most productive and abundant supply on earth but too much of the food goes to waste" says Tom Vilsack."By reducing wasted food in landfills, we cut harmful methane emissions ...

  3. Development of a serotype-independent vaccine based on Salmonella T3SA proteins

    SBC: INTEGRATED ANIMAL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 83

    Salmonella is a bacteriathat causessevere stomach and gut distressinpeople andis the leading cause of food-borne illnesses resulting in hospitalization and death in the US. The resulting economic losses caused bythisbacteriain the livestock industry are staggering with much of the loss attributed to recalls, permanent disruption of the gut lining impairing nutrient absorption, and necessary cullin ...

  4. Development of grower applicable Alfalfa Leafcutting Bee incubation protocols to extend interruption duration for improved pollination management that improves seed yield and bee health

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 812

    The purpose of this proposal is to improve the protocols of incubation interruption of Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALBs) used in the managed pollination of alfalfa seed crop. An efficient alfalfa pollination management program coordinates bee release with bloom onset while minimizing residual pesticide hazard. Our customer feedback suggests that this approach may increase yield up to 100% for grower ...

  5. Detecting Distress Events of Isolated Elderly Living in Remote Rural Regions

    SBC: MOAI TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 86

    The objective of this project is to develop technology for detecting distress events of isolated elderly people living alone in remote rural regions. Many people live in isolated rural homes for a significant percentage of their adult life. As these people become elderly they can have a high preference to stay in their home as long they believe they can care for themselves. They may also be unable ...

  6. Alfalfa bloom prediction using plant images and processing techniques for the purpose of improving pollination using alfalfa leafcutting bees

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 813

    The purpose of this proposal is to conduct research that will provide alfalfa seed growers a bloom forecast application to improve their pollination practices and increase yield. Most U.S. growers outside of California use Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALB) for pollination because they increase yield by more than 50% over honey bees. Growers spend ~$400/acre for ALB's, yet our customer diligence i ...

  7. An Improved Release System for Ethylene Inhibitors to Increase the Shelf Life of Post-Harvest Agricultural Products

    SBC: Hazel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Nearly 50% of produce is wasted throughout the agricultural supply chain. A significant fraction of this loss is through produce senescence, deterioration with age. In almost all plants, senescence is accelerated by ethylene gas, a hormone that plants produce as they age or are damaged. For decades, 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) gas has been used to inhibit ethylene action in plants and produce ind ...

  8. Heat Integrated Reactive Distillation for Synthesis of Bio-based Plasticizers, Solvents and Coatings

    SBC: E3TECSERVICE, LLC            Topic: 88

    The global market for bio-based chemicals is at a critical stage of development. With the focus shifting to development of new bio-based routes to chemicals, new synthesis processes with low capital costs (CAPEX) and high energy efficiency need to be developed that will truly compete with their petroleum derived counterparts. For the market to reach its full potential, techno-economic, health, and ...

  9. High throughput salmonella detector

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: 85

    This Phase II Small Business Innovation Research proposal responds to food safety market needs by developing a high-throughput pathogen detector that will reduce the potential for disease outbreaks and costly food recalls. The device developed in this program addresses a broad sector of food producing markets. This project will focus on detecting live Salmonella organisms in industry-relevant larg ...

  10. Engaging Spanish-English Preschool Teachers to Make Data-Based Decisions in Authentic Settings

    SBC: EARLY LEARNING LABS, INC.            Topic: 1

    This project team will develop and test a prototype app of a screening assessment for children who are Spanish-English Dual Language Learners (SE-DLL) in early education. The prototype will provide formative assessment reports to teachers to guide their decision-making, and will include a series of videos to increase knowledge on core competencies of supporting SE-DLL children. At the end of Phase ...
