  1. THE IMPACT OF TELECOMMUNICATION DELIVERY SYSTEMS ON AGRICULTURE

    SBC: Elra Group            Topic: N/A

    AMERICA HAS ENTERED AN INFORMATION AGE WHERE ACCESS TO TIMELY INFORMATION HAS BECOME CRITICAL. TELECOMMUNICATION IS FAST BECOMING AN ALTERNATIVE TO TRANSPORTATION AS A MEANS TO ACCESS INFORMATION AND OBTAIN SERVICES. WHILE MANY DATA BASES OF AGRICULTURAL INFORMATION HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED, LITTLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE REGARDING THE DELIVERY SYSTEMS NEEDED TO ACCESS SUCH INFORMATION. THIS PROJECT WIL ...

  2. RAPID DETECTION OF CARBOFURAN IN FOOD AND ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES.

    SBC: Hawaii Biotech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN IMMUNOASSAY FOR THE PESTICIDE, CARBOFURAN. PHASE I WILL CONSIST OF SYNTHESIZING SUITABLE HAPTENS, CONJUGATING THESE HAPTENS TO AN IMMUNOGENIC CARRIER, PREPARING AND SCREENING RABBIT ANTISERA, AND CONDUCTING PRELIMINARY COMPETITIVE ELISA TESTS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS APPROACH TO A RAPID, ECONOMICAL PESTICIDE DETECTION SYSTEM.

  3. INSPECTABILITY OF TENSION LEG PLATFORM TENDONS

    SBC: Ocean Engineering Consultants            Topic: N/A

    DESIGNS OF TENSION LEG PLATFORM (TLP) TENDON ELEMENTS WILL BE DESCRIBED AND ANALYZED FROM THE STANDPOINT OF CRITICAL FLAWS AND FRACTURE MECHANICS. VARIOUS INSPECTION METHODS FOR DETECTION OF CRACKS OR OTHER STRUCTURAL FLAWS (E.G. CORROSION) WILL BE IDENTIFIED. IN PARTICULAR, ULTRASONIC DETECTION (UT) WILL BE EXAMINED IN CONNECTION WITH GENERIC TENDON COUPLING DESIGNS, AND A MODEL RELATING UT INSPE ...

  4. AN ACTIVE ELECTROCHEMICAL INSTURMENT SYSTEM FOR DETERMIN INATION OF WATER STRESS

    SBC: AGRICULTURAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    AN ELECTROCHEMICAL INSTRUMENTATION SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED AND CONSTRUCTED TO DETERMINE ON COMMAND PLANT WATER STATUS BY MEANS OF CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY AND/OR COULOSTATICS. THE APPROACH IS BASED ON THE CHANGE IN ELECTROCHEMICAL STATUS OF THE APOPLAST ELECTROLYTE DURING THE NORMAL IRRIGATION CYCLE. A THREE WINDOW MICROPROBE WILL BE FABRICATED ON A SILICON WAFER SUBSTRATE USING THE PLANAR TECHNIQUES CO ...

  5. ARTIFICIAL SEED; ENCAPSULATION OF PLANT SOMATIC EMBRYOS

    SBC: Calgene Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ARTIFICIAL SEEDS PROVIDE A CLONAL SYSTEM TO PROPAGATE ELITE AND IMPROVED GERMPLASM OF SEED CORPS SUCH AS ALFALFA, WITH OUT THE PREREQUISITE OF MEIOTIC RECOMBINATION. ALTHOUGH CL CLONAL PROPAGATION HAS BEEN USED FOR VEGETATIVELY-PROPAGATEDCROPS FOR MILLENNIA, SUCH PROPAGATION HAS NOT BEEN AVAILABLEFOR SEED CROPS PRIOR TO THE DISCOVERY OF PLANT TISSUE C CULTURE TECHNIQUES. THE FIRST STEPS FOR CREATI ...

  6. CONTROL OF WATER QUALITY IN INTENSIVE GEOTHERMAL FISH CULTURE

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    AQUACULTURE, THE CONTROLLED FARMING OF AQUATIC ORGANISMS, OFFERS PROMISING NEW ALTERNATIVE SUPPLIES OF FISH PRODUCTS. THE CHANNEL CATFISH, ICTALURUS PUNCTATUS, IS ONE OF 12 SPECIES DESIGNATED BY THE NATIONAL AQUACULTURE DEVELOPMENT PLAN AS HAVING HIGH PRIORITY FOR COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT. ALTHOUGH LOW DENSITY POND PRODUCTION SYSTEMS ARE IN USE THROUGHOUT THE U.S., DATA IS REQUIRED THAT WOULD PERMIT ...

  7. PLASMA STRUCTURE IN LATER-TIME HANE PLASMAS- LABORATORY SIMULATION

    SBC: Jaycor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE INTERNATION TREATIES PRECLUDE HIGH-ALTITUDE NUCLEAR TESTS, THERE IS LITTLE RELEVANT DATA FROM NUCLEAR BURSTS REGARDING THE SIZE AND DYNAMICS OF STRIATIONS IN NUCLEAR PLUMES OR EVEN THE BASIC PHYSICAL CONDITIONS WHICH PERMIT THE EVOLUTION OF STRIATIONS. THE UNDERSTANDING OF STRIATION BEHAVIOR IS IMPORTANT, AS STRIATIONS GENERATED WHEN THE IONOSPHERE IS DISTURBED BY NATURAL OR NONNUCLEAR MAN ...

  8. USING LASERS IN NUCLEAR EFFECTS SIMULATIONS- FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: Jaycor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    JAYCOR HAS PERFORMED PRELIMINARY IR&D EXPERIMENTS AND NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE INTERACTION OF LASERS WITH SOLID TARGETS. THE RESULTS SUGGEST THAT A CERTAIN CLASS OF LASERS MAY BE USEFUL IN SIMULATING AT LEAST TWO IMPORTANT NUCLEAR WEAPON EFFECTS: (1) THE SCALED ELECTROMAGNETIC RESPONSE OF A CONDUCTING BODY, AND (2) THE SOFT ELECTRON EMISSION SPECTRUM. THIS PROGRAM IS A JOINT EXPERIMENTALAND THE ...

  9. UTILIZATION OF INNOVATION AQUACULTURE TECHNIQUES IN THE PRODUCTION OF SUPERIOR QUALITY NORI

    SBC: Aquaculture Concepts            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS R&D PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE IF SUPERIOR QUALITY NORI CAN BE RAISED ON A COMMERCIAL SCALE UTILIZING INNOVATIVE AQUACULTURE METHODS. THREE MAJOR EXPERIMENTS WILLTEST THE NEW TECHNIQUES DESIGNED FOR A COMMERCIAL FARM. THE OBJECTIVES ARE 1) DETERMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE GROWOUTTANK; 2) TEST THE NURSERY TANK AND DESIGN AND DEVELOP ASSOC IATED METHODOLOGIES; 3) DETERMINE THE ACTUAL ...

  10. DESICCATION OF ENTOMOGENOUS NEMATODES FOR LONG-TERM MASS STORAGE

    SBC: Biosys            Topic: N/A

    INFECTIVE JUVENILES (IJ'S) OF STEINERNEMATID NEMATODES IN THE GENUS NEOAPLECTANA ARE EFFECTIVE CONTROL AGENTS FOR A WIDE RANGE OF INSECT PESTS. MARKET REQUIREMENTS FOR THE YEAR 1987 DETERMINE A PRODUCTION GOAL OF 1011 NEMATODES PER WEEK, WITH 1988 REQUIREMENTS APPROXIMATING 1016 PER WEEK. PHASE I ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF STORAGE AND SHIPMENT OF S SUCH LARGE NUMBERS (=LARGE VOLUMES) OF NEMATODES. I ...
