  1. Environmentally Safe Wood Preservatives

    SBC: NOVAFLUX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: C3NCERA1

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to study a new class of environmentally safe wood preservatives based on cation-anion complexes with antimicrobial activities. The proposed cations include: (1) biguanide/polybiguanide derivatives, (2) polyionenes (polyquats), and (3) quaternary ammonium salts. The associated anions needed to form the complex will be selected from triclosan, ...

  2. An Artificial Neural Network and Optimization Methodology for Detecting and Managing Terrorist Attack Against Water Distribution Systems

    SBC: Neural Optimization Applied Hydrology, LLC            Topic: C3NCERB4

    The goals of this Phase I research project are to investigate the feasibility of using an artificial neural network (ANN) and an optimization-based water distribution security system ("smart security") for accurately detecting contamination events, and given the nature of the threat, identify optimal crisis management decisions that minimize the threat and maintain a safe ...

  3. Novel Membrane Systems for Off-Road Diesel Engine NOx Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: C3NCERD3

    The Bush Administration recently proposed a 90 percent reduction of air pollution emissions from off-road diesel equipment. The Administration indicated that diesel emissions are responsible for large amounts of particulate and NOx emissions from off-road construction, farm, mining, and locomotive and marine engines. A primary approach used to reduce NOx emissions is exhaust gas recirc ...

  4. UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT.

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    UNDER IFR CONDITIONS, AIRPORT CAPACITY IS CURRENTLY LIMITED BY FAA SEPARATION STANDARDS BETWEEN AIRCRAFT. THESE STANDARDS ARE SET TO AVOID A LANDING ENCOUNTER WITH A VORTEX WAKE. IF AN ONBOARD VORTEX SENSOR AN ESCAPE SYSTEM COULD BE DEVELOPED WHICH IS BOTH RELIABLE AND INEXPENSIVE, THE A AVIATION COMMUNITY COULD BENEFIT BY DECREASED TERMINAL DELAYS WITHOUT COMPROMISING SAFETY. THE CONCEPT TO BE ST ...

  5. Equipment and Facilities for Rapid Installation of Buried Innerduct Network for Utility Lines

    SBC: Outside Plant Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of the universal placement of telecommunications and power supply lines below ground, as an alternative to their typically low-cost installation on utility poles, depends upon the availability of a cost-effective convenient method for placing and replacing cables belowground. A network of underground conduits constructed of field-assembled rigid sections, including straight segmen ...

  6. DIFFERENTIALLY DRIVEN GENERATORS (DDG)

    SBC: Transmission Technology Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONALLY, SHIPBOARD POWER GENERATION IS ACCOMPLISHED VIA AUXILIARY ENGINES AND GENERATOR SETS. SIGNIFICANT COST ADVANTAGES CAN BE PROJECTED IF THIS ELECTRICAL DEMAND COULD BE MET BY EXTRACTING POWER FROM THE SHIP'S PRIME MOVER. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, AND TO MAINTAIN A CONSTANT FREQUENCY ON THEGENERATOR WHILE THE SPEED OF THE PRIME MOVER VARIES OVER A WIDE RANGE, THIS CONTRACTOR PROPOSES THE USE ...

  7. OPERATIONS

    SBC: Transmission Technology Co Inc            Topic: N/A

    COST OF CARGO HANDLING OPERATIONS CAN BE REDUCED BY EQUIPMENT THAT USES LESS TIME AND ENERGY TO PERFORM AND RANDREQUIRES LESS MANPOWER TO OPERATE, MONITOR, AND MAINTAIN. ONE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO EVOLVE A PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF A REPRESENTATIVE PIECE OF MACHINERY, NAMELY A MOORING/WARPING AUTOMATIC TENSIONING WINCH USING ADVANCED ELECTRO-MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY, ELIMINATING HYDRAULICS AND ...

  8. WITH THE GROWING COST OF TRACK MAINTENANCE FOR HEAVY AND LIGHT RAIL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS, THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE MAINTENANCE PLANNING AND FORECASTING OF MAINTENANCE REQ UIREMENTS HAS BECOME MORE READILY APPARENT.

    SBC: Zeta-Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WITH THE GROWING COST OF TRACK MAINTENANCE FOR HEAVY AND LIGHT RAIL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS, THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE MAINTENANCE PLANNING AND FORECASTING OF MAINTENANCE REQ UIREMENTS HAS BECOME MORE READILY APPARENT. THIS IN TURN LEADS TO THE REQUIREMENT FOR AN INTEGRATED TRACK MAINTENANCEFORECASTING AND PLANNING SYSTEM THAT WILL ENABLE TRACK MAIN TENANCE SUPERVISORS TO EFFECTIVELY PLAN THEIR MAINTE ...

  9. SLUDGE SOLIDS

    SBC: John Brown Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MUNICIPAL WASTE TREATMENT PRODUCES SLUDGES RICH IN COMPLEX ORGANIC CHEMICALS THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A CHEMICAL RAW MATERIAL AND RESOURCE ANALOGOUS TO WOOD PULP, AG AGRICULTURAL WASTES, OR PETROLEUM. CURRENT DISPOSAL P PRACTICES OF LANDFILLING, OCEAN DISPOSAL AND EVEN INCINERAR ATION DISREGARD THESE VALUES AND AT BEST RECOVER ENERGY (ANDPOSSIBLY METALS). IT IS PROPOSED TO CARRY OUT SEVERAL CL ...
