  1. Portable Rail Suspension Displacement Monitoring System

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 151FR9

    dFuzion proposes the development of a comprehensive Ride Performance Assessment System (RPAS). RPAS leverages the investment and research already made by FRA in its sponsored portable ride quality meter. By extending the ride quality data acquistion framework to accept inputs from suspension displacement sensors, RPAS can correlate data from acceleration and displacement sensors with geospatial in ...

  5. Development of a Thermographic Device for Evaluating Integrity of Steel Bridge Coatings Nondestructively

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This effort is advancing the development of a nondestructive evaluation (NDE) tool for quantitative assessment of highway bridge coatings, the Infrared Coating Inspection System (IR‐CIS). The IR‐CIS can be used to improve decision‐making regarding over‐coating or recoating of bridges, by better and more fully quantifying the current condition of coatings in ways not possible using only vis ...

  6. Innovative Low Cost Solar Air Heating for Poultry House Ventilation

    SBC: AMERICAN SOLAR INC            Topic: 812

    American Solar, Inc. proposes to research and analyze two low cost solar air heating systems for poultry houses. The solar heating systems will use an existing poultry house metal roof and a new wall-mounted, solar curtain system to harvest renewable, solar heated air. The solar heated air will displace cold outside ventilation air that would be brought into the house and require heating by non-re ...

  7. Determination of best candidates for novel orally delivered therapeutic candidates to combat spread of coccidiosis in poultry

    SBC: US BIOLOGIC            Topic: 83

    Avian coccidiosis is the major parasitic disease of poultry that can result in the deaths of millions of birds in a short time. Prophylactic medication and live parasite vaccines are employed as therapeutics. The development of parasite strains resistant to drug treatments, and immune-evasive mutations introduced in response to live parasite treatments will soon limit the effectiveness. The USDA A ...

  8. SCICAST Stimulating Community Involvement by Cultivating Screencast Technologies

    SBC: Inquiry Technologies, LLC            Topic: 86

    Achievement levels of U.S. K-12 students continue to decline compared with those of students in many foreign countries - especially in math and science. Based on current U.S. standards alone, two-thirds of our 8th grade students lack proficiency in core disciplines related to science, math, and reading. This same data for many of our resource-limited rural school districts is even more troubling. ...

  9. Leaf-specific post-emergent herbicide application

    SBC: CONCURRENT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Glyphosate had been used for decades as a pre-emergence herbicide in commercial agriculture. The introduction of herbicide-resistant GMO soybeans and other herbicide-resistant crops made glyphosate the most popular herbicide for grain farmers in the U.S. As the use of glyphosate in post-emergence applications increased, several important weeds, among them Palmer amaranth or pigweed (Amaranthus pal ...

  10. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...
