  1. Vessel Launched Unmanned Aerial System for Marien Debris Detection and Tracking

    SBC: Airborne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 843

    Airborne Technologies, Inc. Phase I effort will be to design and demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low-cost, marinized Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that can be operated easily from small or large vessels and is capable of reliable and repeatable operations in an ocean environment. The UAS will be utilized for the detecting and tracking of marine debris, sea-life or other objects in the ...

  2. A miniature aerosol nephelometer for deployment in dropsondes or UAVs

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 822

    Two, complementary techniques are proposed that are deployable on dropsondes or mobile measurement platforms and measure the scattering coefficient of atmosphere aerosols. The Phase I activity will be a proof of concept study that evaluates the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two measurement systems and combines a detailed analysis of the optical and electronic systems with a laboratory ...

  3. Lightning Probability Nowcasting and Forecasting with PRA Strike Insight Technology


    There is a strong correlation between cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning and the altitude of the 40-dBZ radar reflectivity levels with respect to the height of the -100C level. T he proposed Phase I effort will develop an algorithm for lightning probability based upon these studies, perform basic assessment, prototype a web page for dissemination of the lightning probability or threat risk, and assess ...

  4. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    Water managers are increasingly recognizing climate change as a significant issue and are requesting detailed information about potential hydrologic impacts suitable for inclusion in planning. Available studies, however, are most often academic in nature and have the added limitation of being incompatible with agency specific water management models or the streamflow period of interest. Commissi ...

  5. A Novel CO2 Sensor for Closed Circuit Mixed Gas Rebreathers

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 819S

    A new, solid-state, carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor for use with closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers is proposed. This novel, polymer composite sensor will be small, low power, and low cost. This sensor will be incorporated with closed circuit rebreathers, allowing the NOAA Advanced Diving Program to perform longer, deeper dives. The use of closed circuit rebreathers provide many advantages over d ...

  6. New Crop Opportunity for Semiarid Dryland Production Systems

    SBC: BLUE SUN BIODIESEL LLC            Topic: N/A

    Situation More than 63% of the petroleum we need daily is imported, with steady increases projected. Our national security is threatened by this growing dependence on foreign oil, and we need to reverse the trend. A key segment of the nation's farmers in the Central High Plains region of the western U.S. (with access to nearly 6 million marginal dryland acres) can play an important role in this ef ...

  7. CycloForming of Crude Glycerol


    According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), 68% of the petroleum oil consumed by the U.S. is used for transportation. Diesel fuel constitutes over 25% of the nation's total fuel use. The U.S. consumes 90,000 gallons of diesel fuel every 60 seconds, producing significant greenhouse gases in the process. The increased use of biofuels such as biodiesel benefits Americans by creating a n ...

  8. Development of a Novel Feral Hog Toxicant

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    Feral hogs, European wild hogs, Russian wild hogs, wild boars, razorbacks, rooters, or hybrids of these are all names for the same species, Sus scrofa. Feral hog populations are spreading across the United States with little resistance from the private and public sector, causing considerable damage in their wake. We are suggesting control by a means not currently used in the United States, but has ...

  9. Research and Development of Methods to Deliver Information from MyPyramid.Gov to People with Visual Disabilities

    SBC: IDET COMMUNICATION INC            Topic: N/A

    Obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and stroke are significant health concerns for Americans. The American diet, portion size, caloric intake, and activity levels all play a role in the extent of these health issues. To counter this growing problem, USDA has recently released new dietary guidelines, along with a completely new pyramid diagram to promote healthy food choices for all Americans ...

  10. Marketing Fresh Marine Shrimp in Niche Regional US Markets

    SBC: MAGNOLIA SHRIMP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The major question in any startup business is whether profitability can be reached. While we have a very good projection of the costs of production, there is some uncertainty regarding what prices we can achieve for our product, since we will be able to provide the market with a fresh weekly product which is basically unavailable in today's market place, particularly for the Midwest markets far re ...
