  1. A Standard Lidar Interface for Wind and Aerosol Profiling from Commercial

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Lidar systems offer considerable promise for the acquisition of a variety of atmospheric variables with very high spatial and temporal resolution from airborne platforms. Ground-based lidar systems have been demonstrated that measure aerosols, water vapor, and ozone, and airborne windsensing lidar have been flown on several military aircraft. The growing number of commercial airliners, however, of ...

  2. Simple Optical Vibration Sensor for Small Objects

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A very simple and low-cost optical sensor for measuring vibrations of mechanically supported thin films and other small objects will be developed. Such measurements are useful in characterizing elastic materials properties. The sensor is based upon the so-called self-mixing effect in lasers, which enables the assembly of velocimeters containing nothing more than a diode laser, a lens, and a sign ...

  3. Neural Net Software for Optimization of Ceramic Grinding

    SBC: Native American Technologies Company            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this Phase 1 project is to demonstrate the ability to develop a neural network model of the ceramic grinding process with fusion of the sensor/process control parameter data. A model will be developed from existing NIST data using artificial neural systems (ANS) with algorithms that have previously been specifically designed to provide good results for manufacturing applications, fo ...

  4. Study of Operation Conditions Including a Refrigerant Composition Heat

    SBC: Spauschus Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Zeotrope refrigerant mixtures have been proposed and used for energy saving. Matching the temperature glide of the refrigerant to the temperature change of the heat sink and source, while simultaneously reducing the pressure difference seen by the compressor will result in significantly improved efficiency. A new cycle based on a mixture cascade combined with a rectifier column has recently been i ...

  6. CLEAN AND EFFICIENT UTILIZATION FROM AGRICULTURAL RESIDUES

    SBC: EnerTech Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase I research proved the feasibility of EnerTech's Slurry Carbonization technology for economically producing clean and marketable fuels from high-moisture agricultural residues and wastes, especially animal manures. The Slury Carbonization technology effectively transformed low-grade animal residues, through a moderate temperature and pressure carbonization process, into a uniform and especial ...

  7. A Rapid Collection And Detection Method For

    SBC: Immunological Associates Of Denver            Topic: N/A

    Studies have found Cryptosporidium parvum (C. parvum) oocysts in 65-97% of surface water tested inthe United States. The current Surface Water Treatment Rule does not include analysis for C. parvum.However, the increased incidence of outbreaks involving Cryptosporidiosis have instigated aninvestigation into whether or not testing should be included in the Enhanced Surface Water TreatmentRule. Th ...

  8. Alaskan Eco-technology For Commercial

    SBC: Moose Creek Farm            Topic: N/A

    Alaskan Commercial agriculture presents many challenges including extreme weatherconditions, isolation from cost-effective distribution, and availability of plants suitable forcommercial application. Clearing requirements for agricultural tracts resulted in a loss of topsoil.Using commercial chemical fertilizers further depletes soils resulting in greater increasing soiladditive requirements. Th ...

  9. Advanced Fiber Processing Technology for Agro-Plastic Composites

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fillers have been used in the plastics industry for almost 90 years. The total amound of all fillers in 1993 was 7.7 billion pounds and are primarily wood flour, talc and calcium carbonate. Pinnacle Technology and USDA's Forest Product Laboratory have entered a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement to determine the procedures for a commercial operation of converting wheat straw and poly ...

  10. Promoting Student Self-Determination: A Student-Directed

    SBC: A.U. Software, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Self-determination is a desirable and critical outcome for students with disabilities. Self- determination is particularly important in transition planning, since it is literally the launching process for the rest of the student's life. One barrier for students with cognitive disabilities in achieving self-determination for transition planning has been difficulty dealing with print-based material ...
