Award List:

Fiber Optic Nozzle Tip Monitor for Agricultural Sprayers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dr. Karl-Heinz Mertins , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
Concerns about health and environmental hazards associated with chemical spraying, as well as the rising cost of farming, madate that chemical application becomes more efficient and increasingly precise. It is important to know immediately if any nozzles have become partially clogged or ceased… More

A Real-time Cracked Grain Monitor For

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dr. karl-heinz mertins
Award Amount: $54,745.00
Abstract:
Phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility of a new cracked grain monitor that can mount directlyonto a combine to detect breakage in a variety of clean grains while they are being harvested. Whenintegrated into a closed-loop threshing control system, this sensor will greatly improve the… More
