  1. SBIR Phase I: Enhancing Starch Quantity and Quality in Hybrid Grain Sorghum

    SBC: Caisson Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project developes methods to molecularly abort sorghum embryos, early in their development, to redirect nutrients, normally used for embryo development, toward starch accumulation. The research will construct and test genetic cassettes necessary for aborting embryo development in seeds and identify sorghum lines possessing high tissue culture regener ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Direction and Profile Control for Thermal Sprays

    SBC: CASTLEROCK ENGINEERING            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to apply the unique property of high-speed jets to adhere to nearby curved surfaces, with a turning radius much larger than the size of the jet - the so-called COANDA effect. The proposed research aims to take advantage of this effect to manipulate thermal spray jet stream and vector the stream such that the hot thermal gas stream ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: MEMS for Secure RFID Applications

    SBC: Cerberex Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This SBIR Phase II research project will demonstrate a working ?alpha? prototype of a MEMS-based approach to security for RFID and other electronic security applications. MEMS resonators have very narrow bandwidths and high frequencies which vary from resonator to resonator. This natural frequency variation can be used to uniquely identify a resonator, and makes cloning a specific signal extremely ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Novel Chemically Resistant Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop novel chemically and thermally stable, highly fluorinated mixed matrix polymeric membranes with high selectivity. The program's objective is to apply enhanced membrane separation as an alternative to distillation separations that deal with high temperature and aggressive chemicals. Distillation is a major separation process in th ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: High Resolution Tunable Receiver For Remote THz Sensing

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: EO

    This SBIR Phase I research project will demonstrate the feasibility of inexpensive high-resolution tunable terahertz (THz) receivers based on electron-heating in semiconductor nanodevices. The nanosensor will be composed of a low-mobility channel shaped from a Aluminum Gallium Arsenide/Gallium Arsenide (AlGaAs/GaAs) two-dimensional electron gas. The proposed tunable inexpensive heterodyne detector ...
