  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. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Novel Low-cost Methods for Fabricating Compact, Vertically Integrated MEMS

    SBC: VISM CORP.            Topic: SB043036

    We propose to demonstrate tunable Fabry-Perot filter (TFPF) for hyperspectral imaging sub-systems that can be integrated in surveillance, target recognition and threat warning systems. The MEMS TFPF employs a novel electrostatic actuator made that provides high accuracy tuning with compactness, low-weight, digital tuning, and high speed.

  9. Miniature Netted Sensors

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06015

    Williams-Pyro proposes to develop an AccuTag Miniature Surveillance and Tracking System (Accu-MiSTS). Accu-MiSTS employs cluster management techniques and ad-hoc networking to provide a readily scalable architecture with which to perform comprehensive surveillance. A cluster is comprised of one supernode and up to 65,536 nodes, all of which are within the communication range of at least one other ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Providing Tools for Richer eLearning Assessment

    SBC: Agile Mind, Inc.            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will study effective models for carrying out assessments employing challenging puzzle-like questions that incorporate distractor analyses in which meaning is assigned to complex responses. Such distractor analyses apply where there is the possibility that the test taker can give alternative correct, partially correct, and incorrect an ...
