  1. Traffic Surveillance System using Heterogeneous Sensor Technologies for National Park Service

    SBC: CLR ANALYTICS INC.            Topic: 141FH5

    Continued population growth and expanded commercial development have already push the daily traffic on National Park Service(NPS) Parkways exceeds design capacity especially around the urban area. The Parkways around urban areas usually serve as commuting routes for commuters and as scenic routes for visitors. Heavy traffic in rush hours, high travel speeds during non-peak periods, and condition o ...

  2. Coordinated Data and Scoring for Usage Based Insurance


    This SBIR phase I project will extend an existing collaboration with multiple insurance companies to identify a common prototype data set and risk scoring algorithm that are independent of the devices deployed for data collection. Collection devices include some commonly used by various telematics service providers, as well as mobile devices. Parameters will include at a minimum deceleration and ...

  3. Protecting Ponderosa Pine from Dendroctonus with VerbPlus Repel

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 81

    This SBIR proposal targets the western pine beetle (WPB) Dendroctonus brevicomis LeConte (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae), the most destructive insect pest of ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson, in much of western North America. This insect causes high levels of tree mortality, inflicting millions of dollars in losses each year. One million or more trees, equivalent to more t ...

  4. Program Code 8.1: Forests and Related Resources, Subtopic 7: Sustainable Bioenergy and Development of Value-Added Products From Forest Resou

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 81

    For sustainable forests, residues must be managed at low cost. If residues could be converted to a valuable energy product, then management costs would be offset, leading to improved forests. To create a valuable energy product from low density residues, they must be densified to reduce handling, transport and storage costs. In this project, the technical feasibility of the low cost Biomass Fuel B ...

  5. Integration of Novel Attractants into Bait and Kill Stations for Control of the Asian Citrus Psyllid

    SBC: Inscent, Inc            Topic: 82

    Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP) vectors citrus greening disease and is thus the most serious pest faced by the US citrus industry. The ACP has already severely affected Florida citrus production, has entered Texas, and is spreading into California, where citrus is a billion-dollar industry with a history dating back to the 19th century. However, current control approaches lack effective attractants for ...

  6. H2S and CH4 air quality monitor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methane (CH4) are two of the major pollutants associated with animal waste and sewage. Their release to the atmosphere has consequences both locally, where H2S can be present at toxic levels that influence human health and quality of life, and globally, where CH4 acts as a greenhouse gas to influence climate change. Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a compact, inexp ...

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 813

    Seacoast proposes to develop a low-cost system that can directly monitor chemicals emitted from crops, over a period of days to months, and analyze these chemicals for the indicators of crop stress. Researchers have found a number of chemicals that are emitted when certain plants are under attack from biotic or abiotic stresses. One example, methyl salicylate (MeS) has been found by researchers to ...

  8. Production of organic acids from crude glycerol in industrial yeast hosts

    SBC: Lygos, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The goal of this Phase I work plan is to construct a prototype biocatalyst that produces propionic acid from glycerol, a byproduct from biodiesel manufacturing. Propionic acid is a large volume, commodity chemical currently produced from petroleum. A biological production process may provide a route to generate this compound renewably, at reduced cost relative to the incumbent petrochemical proces ...

  9. Controlled Release formulations of fatty acid based repellent/insecticide for livestock protection

    SBC: STRATACOR            Topic: 83

    Much of the land in the United States is not capable of producing cultivated crops, but does produce abundant forage for livestock production. The value of these forages is largely unrecognized, mainly because it enters the market in the form of an animal product, specifically cattle. Livestock is the leading cash crop of all farm production, with cattle/calves being the leading cash commodity wit ...

  10. Determining nutrient density of niche and cultural greens for improved nutrition in the US

    SBC: SAN MIGUEL PRODUCE, INC            Topic: 85

    Unlike traditional vegetables such as standard commercial varieties of broccoli or carrots, our niche cultural greens (which refers to greens that are popular with certain ethnic groups) are relatively new to most US consumers; nutritional information either has yet to be scientifically verified, or is generic to the commodity as whole without the specific variety taken into consideration. Utilizi ...
