  1. DEVELOPMLENT OF A LAUNDRY MONITOR FOR DETECTION OF HOT PARTICLE CONTAMINATION

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    TWO APPROACHES WILL BE EXAMINED TO SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THESENSITIVITY OF LAUNDRY MONITORS TO DETECT AND SPECIFY LOCATION OF HOT PARTICLES ON LAUNDERED GARMENTS. THESE PROPOSED TECNIQUES HAVE HIGH POTENTIAL FOR DETECTING BOTH LOW ENERGY BETA AND ALPHA PARTICLE RADIATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING SENSITIVITY BY REDUCING BACKGROUND COUNT RATE.

  2. IMPROVED NEUTRON SPECTROMETER AND EXPOSURE METER

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE UNCERTAINTY IN MEASURING NEUTRON DOSE EQUIVALENT RATES RESULTS IN UNCERTAINTY IN ASSIGNMENT OF THE PROPER DOSE TO OCCUPATIONAL RECORDS AND CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER IMPLEMENTATION OF CONTROLS TO LIMIT THE EXPOSURE. A NOVEL PORTABLE NEUTRON SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL REDUCE THE UNCERTAINTY OF SUCH MEASUREMENTS TO LESS THAN 20%. MANYCOMPONENTS OF THIS DEVICE ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE. SYS ...

  5. A QUICK DIAGNOSTIC TEST TO DETECT A DEADLY BACTERIA INFECTING CHANNEL CATFISH

    SBC: Athens Research And Technology            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL CATFISH PRODUCTION IS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPAIRED BY INFECTIOUS DISEASES, A MAJOR CAUSE OF ECONOMIC LOSSES TO THE CATFISH PRODUCER. ONE OF THE MOST DETRIMENTAL OF THESE INFECTIOUS DISEASES IS ENTERIC SEPTICEMIA OF CATFISH (ESC) CAUSED BY EDWARDSIELLA ICTALURI. IN 1987, APPROXIMATELY $4 MILLION WORTH OF FISH IN MISSISSIPPI ALONE DIED FROM ESC. PROMPT TREATMENT OF INFECTED FISH INCREASES THE C ...

  6. FIELD INSTRUMENT FOR WIND ERODED SOIL MASS

    SBC: Sensit Company            Topic: N/A

    WITHIN THE CRYSTAL UPON THE PARTICLE'S COLLISON. THE SENSORHAS BEEN DESIGNED TO RESPOND TO THE MOMENTUM RANGE OF 2.6 X 10 -12 TO 8.9 X 10 -7 G-M/S. THIS CORRESPONDS TO PARTI-CLES HAVING A DIAMETER RANGE OF 100 TO 1500 MICROMETERS TRAVELING AT VELOCITIES OF 2.0 TO 20 M/S, THE MAIN CONSTITU-ENT OF WIND ERODED SOIL. CALIBRATION OF THE SENSOR OVER THIS MOMENTUM RANGE UTILIZING ASSORTED SIZED PARTICLES ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF A LOW COST ETHYLENE OXIDE DETECTOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY AND DEVELOP TOWARDS COMMERCIALIZATION A LOW-COST, RELIABLE DETECTOR TO MONITOR ETHYLENE OXIDE (ETO) DOWN TO THE 0.1 PPM LEVEL. THE DETECTOR WOULD HAVE A RESPONSE TIME OF ONE MINUTE OR LESS AND WOULD FEATURE A GAS CHROMATOGRAPH (GC) COLUMN COUPLED WITH A SOLID STATE COMBUSTIBLE GAS SENSOR. AIR DRAWN AS PART OF THE SAMPLE WOULD ...
