  1. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  2. Advancing remote sensing approaches to measure water yield, identify ecological forest restoration priorities, and promote watershed investment opportunities in fire prone watersheds in California.

    SBC: Blue Forest Conservation, LLC            Topic: 81

    Forests across the Western U.S. are at a tipping point - overgrowth, a warming climate, drought, and insect infestations have ravaged tens of millions of acres of land, increasing the risk of wildfire and threatening water resources, air quality, communities, homes, and habitat. Forest restoration (the strategic removal of brush and shrubs and the selective thinning of trees to return forests to a ...

  4. Low Trellis Production, Harvesting System and Marketing Tools for Locally-Grown Hops and Value-Added Products

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: 812

    There is a large demand for high quality, locally-grown hops by craft brewers throughout the U.S. Farmers are increasingly looking at establishing small-scale (¼ acre to 5 acres) commercial hop yards to supply this demand. Commercial hop yard infrastructure and harvest equipment currently available for purchase are not practical for many of these farms because they can be too expensive. While man ...

  5. Continued Development of Airborne Wind Energy System Ground Station

    SBC: EWINDSOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 812

    Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) is still a relatively new field but is growing quickly. There are approximately 13 other AWE companies worldwide that appear to have the technical competence and realistic understanding of business such that we view them as realistic competitors. As we have detailed above, eWind differentiates itself from them by focusing on following current FAA (or European) flight rul ...

  7. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...
