  1. N/A

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a growing trend towards the use of ¿Car-Less¿ technology, where a rail-car is not needed to transport road-haul trailers over rail: Trailers operate in the usual manner over highways, drive up to a rail yard and transform to ¿rail-mode¿ with relative ease. In rail mode, many ¿Car-Less¿ units use slightly modified 3-piece, 70-ton freight car trucks. These trucks are no ...

  2. Utilization of Native Grass and Forb Meadows as a Source for Native Seed

    SBC: Solis Environmental            Topic: N/A

    Mandates to use native wildflower and grass seed began in 1987 with the Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act and have been reinforced by two Executive Orders. Current demand for native seed exceeds the supply therefore the need exists to develop additional native seed sources.

  3. Active Automated Diagnostic System for Aircrafts

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aircraft wire damage can be caused by aging, maintenance, vibration, exposure to moisture, and many other factors. However, current wire maintenance and inspection methods are often insufficient to detect these frequent problems. Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an aircraft wire maintenance system that detects wiring problems and analyzes the type of fault. This system, called Active Aut ...

  4. Performance & Cooperation Among Multiple Autonomous Space-based Agents

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous planning of space-based unmanned craft is at the cutting edge of science and technology. Problems associated with planning arise when multiple independent agents each on separate spacecraft must work in a coordinated fashion for a combined mission. This proposal examines the ramifications of cooperating and independent autonomous agents controlling unmanned craft toward a common cause. ...

  5. Fluorogenic Cell-Based Biosensors for Microbial Monitoring

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Great strides have been made in developing diagnostic systems for detecting and identifying specific pathogens and their toxins. However, these systems may be too specific and unable to detect newly emerging pathogens whose immunological or genetic profile is different than the normal complement of pathogens. The ideal system in an isolated environment such as a spacecraft would be one that provid ...

  6. Miniature Flow Cytometer and Cell Sorter for Use in Low Gravity

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional fluorescence-activated cell sorters (FACSs) are widely used to study eukaryotic cell populations. Although they provide impressively efficient sorting, they are costly, mechanically complex, and require large sample volumes and trained personnel for operation and maintenance. In addition, the footprint per unit separation is considerable and they typically require large input populati ...

  7. Carbon Cold Cathode Electron Sources for Low Power Electric Propulsion Thrusters

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation proposed here is the use of carbon thin film cathodes as an electron source for electric propulsion for microspacecraft applications. Hall and ion thrusters are two types of electric propulsion systems that are commonly used on earth-orbiting spacecraft and very recently on interplanetary probes. These propulsion systems use hollow cathodes to thermionically emit electrons that are ...

  9. Single-Mode DFB InGaAsP lasers at 1.8 to 2.2 um

    SBC: APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop single-mode DFB lasers at 1.8 to 2.2 um based on InGaAsP materails at room temperature with a linewidth of 0.1 to 0l.2 MHz. MBE regrowth technology will be used for the grating. We will also study the device reliability. A compact mid-IR single mode laser could be extremely useful for the enviromental monitoring and pollutant sensing. We have a lot of experience in the IR las ...

  10. Advanced Long Wavelength Infrared Detectors using InAs/GaInSb Strained Layer Sup

    SBC: APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared photodetectors operating in the wavelength range of 3-20 mm and beyond are of great importance to a wide variety of ongoing and future NASA missions, as well as many commercial and military applications in infrared (IR) imaging and sensing. Hence, there is a constant pursuit of advances in detector technologies and enabling technologies related to increasing detector performance. In recen ...
