  1. Appropriate Technology Woody-Biomass Collection Systems for Bioenergy and Biobased Products

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    It is currently prohibitively expensive to collect and transport woody biomass from urban areas to biorefineries, bioenergy and other users in distant markets. This project optimizes biomass density through baling for transport via truck and rail.

  2. Packaging of Poultry Litter for Economically Viable Storge and Transportation: Phase II

    SBC: Mammoth Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Areas of high poultry production in the U.S. have led to a serious problem of excess poultry litter which presently threatens to contaminate groundwater sources by introducing excessive quantities of bio-nutrients (eg, N,P &K) into the aquifer. This project proposes an economically viable solution to the problem by forming the excess material into large, dense, plastic-wrapped bales which can then ...

  3. Refractance Window Drying for Improved Product Quality

    SBC: MCD Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Dehydration is one of the most effective means to preserve foods in a stable and safe condition for an extended shelf life. Loss of heat sensitive nutrients and other health promoting compounds in dried foods are major concerns in the design and operation of food drying equipment. Scientific information is lacking on the operation of the Refractance Window (RW) drying process. This project provide ...

  4. Development of a Volitional Entry Device to Move Fish into Automated Vaccination Systems

    SBC: Northwest Marine Technology            Topic: N/A

    The Aquaculture industry is hampered by the lack of an effective automated injection vaccine delivery system. The purpose of this project is to learn how to motivate fish to enter an automated vaccination system.

  5. Development and Evaluation of Methods for the Subtidal Culture of the Geoduck Clam

    SBC: Seattle Shellfish LLC            Topic: N/A

    Geoducks (Panopea abrupta) are in great demand, particularly in China, selling for as much as $15 per pound (wholesale in the shell). At the present time, geoducks are produced commercially from two different sources: 1) a dive fishery (started in 1970) taking wild geoducks from subtidal waters and 2) geoducks that have been produced from intertidal aquaculture farms (with hatchery seed) since the ...

  6. A virtual launchpad for learning at higher speeds

    SBC: Current Conceptions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal is to develop a Virtual Learning LaunchPad prototype and to compare the learning by students viewing this prototype with a traditional video lecture. The Virtual Learning LaunchPad will merge six delivery methods to greatly compress delivery time of a complex concept in reproductive science. The technologies incorporated will be: 3-dimensional anatomical reconstructions, step-an ...

  7. From Assessment to Action

    SBC: Facet Innovation            Topic: N/A

    Diagnostic assessment is a technique in which a student’s answers to questions are used to identify appropriate further instructional actions, rather than solely to evaluate educational attainment. The technique is difficult to use because the average teacher has difficulty implementing it successfully. We will build an online diagnostic assessment system and use it to offer a unit-level diagnos ...

  8. Dual-Output Broadband Linearized Modulator For Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: ST041003

    Practical, low-cost, broadband 20GHz, high dynamic range, "inear analog photonic links" are needed in many DoD communications, radar, and surveillance applications. This effort is to develop a new type of linearized optical modulator for broadband multi-octave operation to be used to enhance the dynamic range of the wideband RF photonic link.

  9. Renewable Electric Energy Source for Special Operations Force (SOF) Maritime Combatant Craft

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM05001

    Stirling Technology Company (STC) has developed several Free-Piston Stirling Engine (FPSE) generators with outputs ranging from 10 W to 3 kW. These engines are very quiet, adaptable to virtually any fuel, and can run continuously. However, existing units are relatively heavy. STC proposes to leverage over 2 decades of development into a Special Operations Power System (SOPS) that directly addresse ...

  10. Built-In Filament Control for Long Lifetime in Broad Area Diode Lasers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: ST061009

    The elimination or suppression of filaments through the use of photonic crystal structures is proposed in this STTR. Filament formation is a well-known problem in high-power, broad area semiconductor diode lasers, often leading to catastrophic failure of the diodes. The diode failure also normally results in a system failure in the systems in which the diodes are employed. By using a bi-direct ...
