  1. High Yield, High Efficiency Bio-Refining

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N/A

    Processing of vegetable oils is complicated by the need to remove free fatty acids. Washing with caustic is a viable process but is inefficient because fatty acids and caustic form soaps which cause emulsions. These emulsions cause a yield loss of 1-1.5% or 160-240 Million lb/yr of soybean oil alone. The purpose of this project is to improve yields and energy efficiency in vegetable oil processing ...

  3. Non-Leachable Boron-Based Wood Preservative for Ground Contact and Exterior Applications

    SBC: Merichem Chemicals & Refinery Services LLC            Topic: N/A

    An ideal wood preservative is stable in wood, biodegrades in soil, is non-corrosive, and if the wood is burned, either inadvertently or for disposal, does not produce toxic fumes or ash. Boron is a broad spectrum preservative with good efficacy against fungi and most insects. However, boron preservatives are not stable in wood due to their high solubility in water. A boron-based compound with func ...

  4. Handheld FRET-Aptamer Sensor for Agricultural Security

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    America is highly vulnerable to agricultural bioterrorism. A successful attack could be devastating to the U.S. and world economy. Rapid detection of agricultural bioterrorism agents is critical to limiting or halting the spread of such disease agents. This project concerns development of a rapid, facile, one-step fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-aptamer assay and handheld sensor for ...

  5. Development of a Simple, Quantitative Kit to Test Vegetables and Fruits for Evidence of Fecal Contamination

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC METHODS INC            Topic: N/A

    One of the most vulnerable sectors in the food industry includes "ready-to-eat" fruits and vegetables that may be consumed without peeling, pasteurization, or cooking. Increases in the year-round consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables that are out of season in the United States, coupled with the relaxation of international trade restrictions, have resulted in significant increases in the impor ...

  6. SoundAlert- A Centralized System Capable of Alerting People Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing Impaired of Critical Sounds in Their Environment

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project is intended to result in a comprehensive system that delivers natural warning and communication mechanisms for persons with hearing loss. The SoundAlert system offers a unique approach to enable persons who are deaf or hard of hearing to: (1) initiate and receive emergency communications; (2) receive alerts in the workplace or home environments on a single, pocket-sized device throug ...

  7. Increasing Mobility Through Advanced Power Sources for Assisted Mobility Devices

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project develops a high-capacity hydrogen storage system for a fuel cell/battery hybrid power supply for electric wheelchairs and scooters. The light-weight, rugged, simple to recharge, and environmentally friendly system is fabricated to deliver over 1.2kW of peakpower and optimize for an average power use of 430 W, weigh 20 kg, and deliver 12,000 Watt hours of energy, equivalent to over 28 ...

  8. Rotary-Wing UAV as On-Demand Sensor Platform for Aircraft Operators

    SBC: LITE MACHINES CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    During warfare, strikes made with surgical precision by Special Operations Forces reduce collateral damage and loss of life among non-combatants and have become the expectation of our war-fighters. Such strikes, however, require the ability to survey the target area in a timely fashion and guide munitions accurately. High altitude photographs taken by satellites and orbiting aircraft often lack ...

  9. Safe, Backpackable Method For Field Neutralization of Small Arms

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: ST061010

    This Phase I STTR effort involves harnessing the power of accelerated corrosion for the purpose of safely neutralizing small arms caches. A key part of the fight against irregular forces is finding their hidden small arms caches and either removing or destroying them. When removal is not possible or practical, destruction in place is the alternative. During Phase I, Lynntech, in collaboration w ...

  10. Rosetta Phone

    SBC: NEXT WAVE SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: ST061003

    Most DoD missions occur in areas of the world where the native language is not English. The warfighters find themselves in situations where a quick, real-time translation of signs, placards, and documents could lead them out of dangerous situations or provide important clues and information relative to the mission at hand. In places such as Afghanistan or North Korea, this turns out to be a part ...
