  2. Reducing Impact of Severe Space Weather on Global Positioning System (GPS) Satellite Users

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 844W

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to utilize its unique capabilities in atmospheric effects characterization and GPS signal processing to develop algorithms that nowcast ionospheric scintillation at GPS frequencies. To this end, PRA proposes to partner with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to use real-time GPS data to create a map of ionospheric scintillation parameters over the ...

  3. Electronically Controlled Pneumatic Brake System Emulator Development

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 121FR2

    Migration of the vehicle fleet from the current, pneumatic-only, automatic air brake (AAB) system to ECP presents a significant challenge due to the systems’ inherent operational incompatibility. This project will investigate the feasibility of devices that can help to ease this transition by allowing ECP equipped cars to operate in a conventionally braked train, as well as devices to permit con ...

  4. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & V) converts oxygen from the surrounding atmosphere into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches ...

  5. Preventing Bone Loss and Weight Gain with Combinations of Vitamin D and Phytochemicals

    SBC: Aptotec, Inc.            Topic: 85

    Obesity and osteoporosis are major public health concerns due to their prevalence in our increasingly sedentary and aging society. In the U.S. today, an estimated 55% of people 50 and older are at risk for developing osteoporosis. Because as much as 20% of bone mass can be lost in the first five to seven years following menopause, osteoporosis is a major health issue for aging women. In 2005, oste ...

  6. Improved Strategies for Elevated Vermicomposting Systems

    SBC: SKOLEX BIOTECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 84

    The agricultural community's relationship with urban centers has always been complicated and highly dynamic. Recent US Census data indicates that "agricultural America" is growing the fastest at the transition zones near urban areas. At the same time there is strong interest by those living in cities and suburbs to participate in food production and farming. In conjunction with thes ...

  7. Development of an Efficient On-Farm Fertilizer Manufacturing System Utilizing a Pulsed Microwave Air to Nitric Oxide Plasma Reactor Powered

    SBC: N-OVATION, INC.            Topic: 812

    Until early in the 20th century, nitrate fertilizer was manufactured by the electric arc process using water, air, and cheap hydroelectric power. Because this electric arc process was extremely inefficient, by the 1930s the process was replaced by the Haber-Bosch ammonia process which utilizes natural gas to manufacture nitrogen fertilizer in the form of ammonia. Not only does the Haber-Bosch proc ...

  8. Sustainable Green Diesel Production: Upgrading Biomass Waste Pyrolysis Oil

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The explosive growth of biofuels in recent years has shown that there is great potential for biomass to be a raw material for the production of transportation fuels. Possibly the most economical means to produce biofuels is by the liquification of biomass (fast pyrolysis) and subsequent upgrading. This method is also potentially the most sustainable, provided the feedstock is produced sustainably. ...

  10. Biobased and Biodegradable Impact Modifier for Completely Renewable Bioplastic

    SBC: PolyNew, Inc            Topic: 88

    The now rapidly developing field of plastic materials based on renewable resources (bioplastics) provides tremendous opportunities to sustain and enhance the domestic plastics industries, the fourth largest manufacturing sector of the American economy. In addition, bioplastic materials are derived from agricultural materials and will help reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign oil Growth in the use ...
