  1. A Computational Tool for Design and Operation of Coolers/Dryers for Feed Pellets

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cooling and drying of feed pellets are the most important operations in the feed manufacturing industry. These operations are carried out simultaneously, in a single machine, by passing ambient air through a moving bed of pellets. However, simultaneous control of both these processes is very difficult. Overdrying of pellets is a common problem that costs several million dollars to feed processi ...

  2. A New Protocol Architecture for Information Retrieval on Gigabit Networks

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Emerging high-speed networking technologies have the potential to dramtically increase access to information in many fields such as education, defense, government information dissemination and health care. However, there are several technical issues that need to be addressed to harness this potential of high-speed networking technology. One ofthese is the development of a new generation of communi ...

  3. A Scalable Environmental Controller with Integrated Solar Thermal Storage and Extraction for Field Protected Agriculture

    SBC: Scenic Valley Farm LLC            Topic: 812

    High Tunnels (commonly called poly tunnels or hoop houses) are a type of field protected agriculture. They are essentially an intermediary between the full environmental risk-taking of outdoor production, and the controlled conditions, and relatively high energy use, of a conventional greenhouse. There are hundreds of thousands of acres in cultivation under high tunnels across the world. Domestica ...

  4. A Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-Based Portable Power Source

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is on the demonstration of a portable, thermally self-sustaining, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-based power module, delivering 25 W at ~70% efficiency, continuous power operating on liquid hydrocarbon fuels, with energy density > 1300 Wh/liter(>2000 Wh/kg. for a 72hr. operation), including fuel canister. SOFC stack, operating at 550oC, is based on novel, anode-supported fuel cells wit ...

  5. Anaerobic Production of biohydrogen from food and Agricultural waste

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: 811

    Despite its clean and green nature when utilized in fuel cells and other devices, most hydrogen is currently produced primarily from non-renewable sources, such as natural gas, oil, and coal. Anaerobic digestion provides a potentially improved alternative to manufacturing hydrogen from petroleum and natural gas. Anaerobic digesters can produce hydrogen from inexpensive and renewable energy sources ...

  6. BMDO TOPIC-- Magneto-Thermal MRAM

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Magneto-Thermal MRAM uses both heat and magnetic field (current) to overcome thermal instabilites of very small memory cells. Self-generated heat in the cell raises the temperature of magnetic material in the cell above the exchange ordering temperature ofthe magnetic material (either ferromagnetic or anti-ferromagnetic). Magneto-Thermal MRAM is compatible with advances in photolithography down to ...

  7. CAD-Based Direct Fabrication of Titanium Components

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    DARPA is interested in demonstrating the capability of freeform fabrication systems to go beyond basic metal materials, such as stainless steel, and build advanced alloy components from CAD files without part-specific tooling or operator intervention. In this Phase I project, Lone Peak proposes to develop a titanium feedstock material and develop the SFF process for two rapid prototyping systems: ...

  8. COMPONENTS OF PARASITIC WASP VENOMS USEFUL FOR CONTROL OF INSECT PESTS

    SBC: Natural Products Research,            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE A PHASE I PROGRAM TO EVALUATE THE INSECTICIDAL PROPERTIES AND COMPONENTS OF CERTAIN PARASITIC WASP VENOMS. MOST INSECTS, INCLUDING MOST IMPORTANT CROP PESTS. ARE ATTACKED BY ONE OR MORE SPECIES OF PARASITIC WASPS. THE VENOMS OF PARASITIC WASPS ARE KNOWN TO HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF EFFECTS ON THEIR HOSTS, INCLUDING PARALYSIS, GROWTH REGULATION, AND SUPPRESSION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. THE BASE ...

  9. COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF VENTILATION SYSTEMS FOR LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ENVIRONMENT SURROUNDING CONFINED ANIMALS DIRECTLY AFFECTS THE PRODUCTIVITY OF THE LIVESTOCKINDUSTRY. A GOOD VENTILATION SYSTEM, WHICH CONTROLS THIS ENVIRONMENT, IS ESSENTIAL FOR MANTAINING THE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF ANIMALS AND WORKERS IN THE LIVESTOCK BUILDINGS. HOWEVER, THE DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF SUCH A SYSTEM IS A COMPLICATED PROCESS. IT INVOLVES OPTIMIZATION OF VARIOUS GOVERNING PARAMETER ...

  10. Corn Stover Sorbent Granules

    SBC: CLEAN PLUS, INC.            Topic: 86

    Oil and coolant drips, leaks and spills from vehicles, machines, oil transfer units and a myriad of business and personal activities account for nearly 36% of petroleum waste that is polluting the Nations surface water, ground water, surface soil and sub-soil. (U.S. Department of the Interior Minerals Management Service, 2009). The usual clean up method of these drips and spills, on a hard surface ...
