  1. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

      For divers, out of air situations present a particular hazard. They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface. A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required. In order for the device to be adopted, it must no t only be effective but it must offer ease of use and a strea ...

  2. A Novel Multi-Sensor Wireless Network for Bridge Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 081FH6

      The ability to monitor the integrity of a bridge structure and detect damage or condition changes at early stages is of significant importance for bridge operation safety.  Currently, the most widely used damage detection methods rely on subjective, incremental visual assessments or localized testing techniques.  In this proposal, we propose to develop and test a low cost and effi ...

  3. Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

    SBC: MINI, LLC            Topic: 07FT4

      This Phase II proposal develops a novel third rail insulator cleaner called the Vohrtex based.on the successfully completed Phase I project that developed the low water consumption, quick cleaning tool, the “Spin Wedge.”  The Vohrtex slides on the third rail and is attached to a service vehicle that rides on the track.  The Vohrtex has a pair of arms, which hang down o ...

  4. Balancing Safety and Capacity in an Adaptive Traffic Signal Control System

    SBC: Sabra & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 081FH1

      This research focuses on the development of a real-time signal timing methodology and algorithms that balance safety and efficiency.  This research consists of two phases:  Phase I was completed in December 2009; it examined the relationships between signal timing and surrogate measures of safety, namely the frequency of rear-end, angle and lane-change conflicts.  The FHWA Su ...

  5. Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS) to mitigate Dilemma Zone (DZ)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 082FH1

      To mitigate the Dilemma Zone (DZ) problem, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) team proposes an innovative vehicle specific Detection, Control and Warning System (DCWS).  DCWS provides vehicle-specific dilemma zone protection based on travel time to the intersection as opposed to more conventional systems which protect a fixed area on the pavement.  Apart from incorporating advance ...

  6. Formulation of Biodegradable Nursery Pots from Poultry Feather Keratin Cronus, LLC

    SBC: CRONUS, LLC            Topic: 89

    The U.S. poultry industry produces two billion pounds of feathers each year, which are considered waste biomaterials and currently converted into low value protein for use in animal feed. In Europe, feathers are autoclaved or burned and then buried as a waste material due to regulations prohibiting animal by-products in feed. A more appropriate use for feathers is to utilize their unique structura ...

  7. Development of a Nest Attractant for the Blue Orchard Bee

    SBC: AGPOLLEN, LLC            Topic: 82

    Modern agriculture has relied almost exclusively on the honey bee for managed pollination services. Honey beekeepers currently face numerous problems including Varroa mites, American foulbrood, Africanized bees and most recently colony collapse disorder. These problems have led to a shorter supply of colonies and consequently higher rental prices in the United States. It is sensible to have more t ...

  8. Agaricus mushroom production utilizing local substrate materials

    SBC: OCR INC            Topic: 812

    Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms are not produced in Hawaii. Increasing the production of locally grown food products would not only re ...

  9. PRESERVATION OF BIOPROCESS ALGAE FOR CERTIFIED SEEDSTOCK

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: 88

    The scope of this SBIR project is to develop the Kuehnle AgroSystem's technical innovation of live algae preservation to provide room temperature storage options for microalgae that are preferred for specific aquaculture and biofuels applications. A major bottleneck in developing algae biomass for the aquaculture and cleantech industry is absence of quality bulk live algae product. Live algae conc ...

  10. Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative for Rural Families

    SBC: LYNN B WILSON            Topic: 86

    Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive oral health than the general population. Low-income families in rural communities experience even g ...
