  1. Biodegradable Lubricants from Renewable Feedstocks

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 88

    Current agriculture and off-road equipment requires the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of integral hydraulic and gear driven systems. The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and seal of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment. During operation, equipment may have slight leaks or suffer catastrophic failures ...

  2. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  3. Multivariate Optical Element Platform for Post-Harvest Inspection

    SBC: Cirtemo Corporation            Topic: 813

    Over the past two decades, Multispectral Imaging (MSI) and Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) technologies have been fielded as rapid, non-destructive quality and safety inspection systems for a vast range of food products. Specifically, MSI and HSI systems enable the evaluation of overall food quality via classification and grading, defect and disease detection as well as visualization of chemical distr ...

  4. Natural biodegradable flocculants derived from hemoglobin

    SBC: VRM Labs            Topic: 84

    VRM Labs is seeking commercialization of a proprietary technology that allows preparation of a novel natural and biodegradable flocculant. Flocculants are substances, which destabilize colloidal suspensions and promote the clumping and settling of the suspended particles.Among the most important applications of flocculants is treatment of agricultural wastewaters, such as the wastewaters generated ...

  5. Natural biodegradable flocculants derived from hemoglobin

    SBC: VRM Labs            Topic: 84

    Antioxidants are a vital component of the food industry. Most of currently used antioxidants aresynthetic chemicals, and there is a global concern among regulatory bodies and customersregarding the safety of these compounds. However, natural antioxidants are more than ten timesmore expensive, and are often not as effective as their synthetic counterparts. Thus, there is a needfor inexpensive and c ...

  6. Developing the Use of the Dietary Inflammatory Index among Children (C-DII)

    SBC: Connecting Health Innovations, LLC            Topic: 85

    Through this proposal we offer a literature-derived, population-based dietary inflammatory index (C-DII) developed to characterize children diets on a scale from maximally anti- to pro-inflammatory. Diet is a strong moderator of chronic systemic inflammation. This C-DII will be used as a basis to:• Direct school lunch programs towards foods that will reduce inflammatrion-associated health ris ...

  7. Novel Natural Antioxidants Extracted from Animal Red Blood Cells

    SBC: VRM Labs            Topic: 85

    Antioxidants are a vital component of the food industry. Most of currently used antioxidants are synthetic chemicals, and there is a global concern among regulatory bodies and customers regarding the safety of these compounds. However, natural antioxidants are more than ten times more expensive, and are often not as effective as their synthetic counterparts. Thus, there is a need for inexpensive a ...

  8. Fail-Safe, Controllable Liquid Spring/Damper System for Improved Rover Space Vehicle Mobility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: H601

    NASA is planning to return to the moon in 2020 to explore thousands of miles of the moon?s surface with individual missions, lasting six months or longer. Surface mobility is critical to outpost buildup and exploration activities, where the change in the vehicle weight between unloaded and loaded cargo conditions and travel over rough terrain can adversely affect the ride handling conditions and ...

  9. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  10. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...
