  1. Enhancing Pork Quality and Value Using Live Animal Ultrasound Technology for Better Breeding and Marketing Decisions

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Over the past 15 years, the emphasis on selecting for leaner pigs with larger loineye areas and high percent lean cuts has resulted in meat with lower water-holding capacity, lower intramuscular fat (IMF), and lower scores for juiciness, flavor and overall pork quality. Swine breeders need a genetic selection tool to help reverse this trend. The purpose of this project is to build on several years ...

  2. Increasing the Marketing Efficiency and Profitability of Wyoming's Wool Producers Through Value Adding Under a Local Early Stage Wool

    SBC: Mountain Meadow Wool Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although the state of Wyoming ranks second in the nation in wool production, a commercial scouring facility does not exist in this region. Raw wool, called greasy, is shipped out of the region, and more often out of the country for further processing. Rarely does this Wyoming product ever return to its state of origin. Value is added outside of the state. During Phase II, we will operate a localiz ...

  3. Adaptive Communication System for Extreme Power Line Networks

    SBC: NORTHERN MICRODESIGN, INC.            Topic: SB043038

    An ad-hoc networking method is proposed for use over existing power lines in large commercial buildings. The network is minimally sensitive to lossy elements such as distribution transformers and tripped or OFF circuit breakers and hardware may be made interoperable with existing power line communication systems. Adaption performance of the network is programmable so that various sensor requiremen ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: High-Speed, Low-Cost Maskless Lithography

    SBC: ALCES Technology, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will research and develop a maskless lithography tool based on the results of the feasibility study. The company has a unique and proprietary approach to achieve higher throughput and lower cost than currently available maskless lithography tools. The approach will employ Line Light Modulator (LLM) to pattern wafers with a linear arra ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Developing a Cost-Effective Method for Creating Cognitive Models for Cognitive Tutors

    SBC: Clearsighted            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will make the creation of effective intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) easier, and it will enable the dissemination of that technology to a broader audience than currently realized. ITSs have proven to be highly effective in delivering computer-based instruction, but they have historically been expensive and difficult to build, requi ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Hydrogen Production from Wind Power and Coal-Bed Methane (CBM) Water

    SBC: Dixon Ladd LLC            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will explore the feasibility of production of high-quality hydrogen in remote, outdoor locations using locally generated wind power and excess water from coal-bed methane (CBM) wells. After adapting wind survey data from several sources to a specific site in northeast Wyoming, the study will create a multivariate mathematical model to ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Structurally Integrated Organic Light Emitting Device-Based Sensors for Dissolved Oxygen in Water

    SBC: Integrated Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a next-generation microsensor for dissolved oxygen (DO) in water. DO sensors are a primary tool for gauging the quality of both fresh water (rivers, lakes, reservoirs) and the oceans; for monitoring the various processes in waste water treatment plants; and, for monitoring fermentation processes in the food and bevera ...
