  1. Micro-Radiometer/Flourometer for Ocean Sensing


    This SBIR project will research and develop a new class of miniature hyperspectral optical instruments for aquatic monitoring. The approach uses a molded spectrograph of exceedingly small size as the key optical component. This so-called micro-spectrograph can be implemented into a variety of miniature instrument configurations, e.g., as a radiometer, reflectometer, flourometer, and spectophotomet ...

  2. Next Generation Electrode Technology for Optimized Performance &

    SBC: SAGE ELECTROCHROMICS,INC.            Topic: N/A

    SAGE Electrochromics, Inc. proposes to evaluate the feasibility of replacing the indium doped tin oxide (ITO) transparent conductor TC with a thin-film Ag based stack having greatly reduced costs, enhanced performance and improved durability for electrochromic (EC) windows. This new system draws upon low-emissivity technology developed in the architectural glass coating industry to maximize photop ...

  3. An Intermodal Operations Planning & Coordination System

    SBC: Zeta-Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed activity will conduct case studies of six selected United States ports to determine whether an integrated terminal information system in each of them might deliver significant benefits to port operators, port users, and shippers. Using the experience of the railroad industry as a guide, problems and possibilities for integrating information flow will be examined. The final report w ...

  6. GPS-Based Animal Control System

    SBC: AgriTech Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase II proposal to continue the work begun by AgriTech Electronics, LC (AgriTech) on a GPS-based livestock control system. This system will exclude animals from areas, or contain them within defined boundaries, where it is impractical or inefficient to build fence to achieve this objective. These needs arise in a variety of contexts, including the exclusion of livestock from riparian a ...

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Anhydrous ammonia (NH3), a heavily used nitrogen fertilizer, is a volatile gas which flashes at -40 F. It is handles as pressurized liquid and difficult to meter accurately and dispense. Its low cost, due to inexpensive energy, has encouraged wasteful over-application rather than investment in currently costly and ineffective application control systems. Ammonia costs will increase with energy cos ...

  8. Smart Helicopter Buckets for Fire Fighting

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop an improved bucket design that will revolutionize the approach to fire suppression. Helicopters now use slung buckets to deliver water, retardants and foam to fire sites. The urgency of time (fire control lines must be established before the fire overruns them) and the need for expensive equipment (helicopters typically cost $2 ...

  9. Exelus Biomass-to-Gasoline Process, Topic 8.8

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project seeks to develop a new chemical process that will convert non-food biomass, such as agricultural or forest waste, into an environmentally friendly and sustainable replacement for gasoline. This effort will reduce the US's dependence on imported oil and decrease net carbon emissions. This project will develop new catalysts and chemical reactions that will efficienctly convert non- ...

  10. Sorghum Protein Adhesives from Low Cost DDGS

    SBC: ECOVERSION LLC            Topic: N/A

    In the United States, annual demand for adhesives and resins exceeds 20 billion pounds. Currently, most adhesives used in the wood industry are petroleum-based, such as phenol-formaldehyde and urea-formaldehyde adhesives. Formaldehyde emissions cause many environmental and health issues. Development of biobased adhesives not only significantly impact a >$100 billion industry sector, but also solve ...
