  1. Best Practices for IntelliDrive Enabled Mobile Application Development

    SBC: Mygistics Inc.            Topic: 102FH3

    The scope of this research initiative addresses what is best practice for delivering mobile applications while ensuring a safe, consistent experience given the differing communications standards, operating systems and hardware limitations of existing and prospective personal communications devices.  It is assumed the scope of this initiative is limited to exploration of applications for consumer devices only, not on-board OEM equipment/applications that may use a passenger's personal communications device to provide network connectivity.  However, the ability of a personal device

  2. Development of an integrated actuator for real time control of spray nozzle flow rate and droplet size spectrum

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Typical agrochemical sprayers use nozzles to atomize a liquid stream into droplets; these droplets then travel to the target. Nozzles may be selected to provide a range of droplet sizes, spray distribution patterns, and flow rates for a desired liquid material application. Spray distribution, droplet size, and flow rate are important considerations in achieving a high quality agrochemical applicat ...

  3. Venting of Underground Storage Tanks Containing Ethanol-Gasoline Blends

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Vapors produced during the process of refueling cars are a significant source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions. Uncontrolled emissions cause economic losses and pollute the environment. This problem is exacerbated when the gasoline contains bioethanol because its presence increases the vapor pressure and volatility of the fuel. These increased fuel emissions from ethanol-gasoline ble ...

  4. Solvent Recovery from Vegetable Oil Miscella by Novel Solvent-Resistant Nanofiltration Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Soybean is the major source for production of edible oils worldwide and in United States. Pressing of the soybean into flakes followed by the solvent extraction with hexane (solvent) is most widely practiced for extraction of oil. Separation of solvent from oil-solvent mixture for solvent recovery and reuse is usually carried out by solvent evaporation. Evaporation (or distillation) demands consid ...

  5. Production of a Value-Added Crop for Greater Human Nutrition

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: 85

    The U.S. population has a deficit of dietary calcium that represents a serious challenge to public health. Many consumers, however, find current methods of increasing dietary calcium to be inconvenient, costly, or unpalatable. This SBIR Phase II proposal seeks to increase calcium levels in lettuce, a specialty crop that already comprises a significant part of the average U.S. diet. Successful Phas ...

  6. Mu opioid agonists with reduced side effects for the treatment of pain

    SBC: MENCURO THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): New approaches are needed to improve the treatment options of over 50 million people in the United States suffering from chronic pain. The proposed research is designed to develop a novel class of opioid analgesicsthat produce less tolerance and may potentially reduce opiate-associated side effects. Opioid ligands activate G protein coupled receptors (GPCR) ...

  7. Lung nodule detection using 3D visual palpation via standard thoracoscopes

    SBC: LUCIDUX            Topic: NIBIB

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Surgeons perform tens of thousands of operations each year to resect suspicious lung nodules. Historically this necessitated an open surgical approach (thoracotomy) through a large chest wall incision. Over the last 10-15 years, minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches have become increasingly common in abdominal and thoracic surgery, with significant benef ...

  8. Novel Catalyst Systems

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Transition metal catalysts are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of active ingredients, precursors and new drug candidates. These products must be very pure, often requiring labor and energyintensive separation processes, to achieve the required purity levels. Of special concern in the present context is to avoid contaminating the pr ...

  9. Customized Nanofiltration Membranes for Enhancing Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall focus of this application is to develop nanofiltration membranes to recover the spent solvents generated from drug manufacturing processes allowing the solvents to be reused resulting in elimination of waste. This is also responsive to NIH RFP PA-09-100 entitled Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy System Technology Research and Development . By ...

  10. Novel Materials and Methods for Separations of Glycopeptides and Glycans

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Analysis of glycoprotein polypeptide sites of carbohydrate attachment and the structures of the glycans present on these proteins requires the combination of high resolution chromatographic separations and sophisticatedmass spectrometry. Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) has great use in separations of glycopeptides and released glycans, exh ...
