  2. Management System Display to Track Emergency Response Vehicles and Mutual Aid During a Crash Response

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 142FA2

    We present the National Incident Visualization System, NIVS. NIVS is a combination of software elements that leverage the capabilities and prevalence of smart-phone technology to create a single point of reference for aggregated information and information sharing during a fire-based emergency at an airport. NIVS aggregates GPS location and status information from personnel and resources with Airp ...

  3. Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    With this research, we would like to provide new materials joining methods to the DOT. This will be achieved with a pulse energy store that has already demonstrated game changing capability in welding a wide variety of metals and alloys. The process we are proposing is known as Homopolar Welding. The weld is created by a solid state fusion welding process whereby high current is passed through ...

  4. Retail Business to Promote Consumption of Processed Foods that Contribute Key Nutrients of Concern to Consumers

    SBC: HEAT LOCATORS LLC            Topic: 85

    The food desert environment is recognized as a major obstacle for access to, and consumption of, healthy food choices by many low income and minority consumers. This has resulted in disparities in obesity and related chronic diseases such as Type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Efforts to address this problem have included increased nutrition education, school interventions and urban farmi ...

  5. Low-Cost Sampling Approaches for Measuring Induced VOC???s of Citrus

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 813

    There are several diseases that are attacking citrus crops world-wide. The citrus industry desperately needs early detection of these infections. However, there are no low-cost, robust diagnostic tests currently available for early identification of citrus diseases under field conditions. This proposal directly responds to the need to reduce the impact of plant diseases and insect pests on citrus ...

  6. Tractor-Based Real-Time System for Drift Reduction and Deposition Prediction

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 813

    Precision agriculture based upon high resolution GPS-based systems has had a dramatic impact on the efficiency of crop production in the United States, but comes with the disadvantage of being unable to estimate spray coverage and drift, or make allowances for changes in weather conditions and potentially undesirable ground patterning. The proposed effort seeks to mitigate this disadvantage by dev ...

  7. Fluorescent Aptamer Test Strips for Food Safety Testing

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: 85

    The lateral flow (LF) or immunochromatographic (IC) test strip is a staple test format in the food safety testing arsenal. However, the sensitivity of LF assays is limited partly due to antibody affinity and partly due to the visual detection limit of colloidal gold or colored latex particles. Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) has developed hundreds of high affinity candidate DNA aptam ...

  8. Development of water based 1-methylcyclopropene formulation for modifying ethylene response of fruit and field crops (Phase II)

    SBC: MIRTECH INC.            Topic: 85

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARYFAO estimates annual global food loss and waste at roughly 30% of cereal crops, 40 to 50% of root crops, fruits and vegetables and 20percent of oilseed crops with an estimated value for total food loss at US$1-trillion. Many factors along the value chain from farm fields to the family table contribute to food loss and waste however one unseen factor goes unnoticed, the plant h ...

  9. StepWise Virtual Tutor for Common Core Algebra I

    SBC: QUERIUM CORP            Topic: edIES15R0005

    This project team will develop and test a prototype of the StepWise Virtual Tutor, designed to be an artificial intelligence software tutoring program for Algebra I students. The tutor will track students as they answer questions, catch algebraic and arithmetic errors, provides hints, and aggregate reports in an instructor dashboard. In the Phase I pilot research with 100 Algebra I middle and high ...

  10. Interactive Exploration of Real World Math

    SBC: MATHALICIOUS, LLC            Topic: EDIES15R0006

    In prior research and development, the team developed the Mathalicious intervention for middle and high school students to improve mathematical thinking. Each Mathalicious lesson revolves around applying a real world example to learn math (e.g., Is college worth the cost). In this project, the team will develop and test a prototype of an adaptive platform through which students will need to demons ...
