  1. An Advanced Information System for Timely Assessments of International Crop Market Opportunities

    SBC: GDA CORP            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem In order to provide timely and reliable assessments of the global crop market, it is necessary to move from limited, in situ crop assessments to operational crop monitoring on regional and global scales with multi-temporal remotely sensed (RS) data. Due to timeliness requirements and large volumes of imagery needed for operational agricultural monitoring, it is important that ...

  2. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  3. NanoBiocides for Wood-Based Construction Materials

    SBC: LIG SCIENCES , INC            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. forest products industry had sales of $262B in 1997, of which two thirds was used for building construction. The use of wood for home construction is an effective, efficient, environmentally friendly, renewable construction material. A key issue in using wood materials in construction is their susceptibility to mold, fungi, and termite infestation resulting in over $10B combined damage pe ...

  4. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  7. Evaluation of Composite Joints in General Aviation Structures

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N/A

    During the Phase I program, MSC demonstrated a powerful new software tool designed for the analysis of bonded joints in General Aviation (GA) aircraft. The tool can handle the complex geometry and boundary conditions found in typical joints, and has been shown to be exceptionally accurate. An easy-to-use front end to the code was also demonstrated. In addition, Materials Sciences Corporation (M ...

  8. FEEDS AND FEEDING STRATEGIES FOR ALLEVIATING WINTER KILL IN CATFISH

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    THE TERM WINTER KILL REFERS TO A SERIOUS DISEASE PROBLEM AFFECTING POND-REARED CHANNEL CATFISH DURING THE LATE FALL, WINTER, AND EARLY SPRING. FISH LOSES CAN BE HIGH AND ALL SIZES OF FISH CAN BE AFFECTED. THE CAUSE AND PATHOGENESIS OF WINTER KILL IS LARGELY UNKNOWN. IT IS BELIEVED THAT IT IS CAUSED BY SOME PREDISPOSING CONDITION THAT DECREASES THE ABILITY OF THE FISH TO ADAPT TO STRESS ASSOCIATED ...

  9. A HIGH EFFICIENCY RADIO-FREQUENCY VACUUM DRYER

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW RADIO-FREQUENCY VACUUM DRYER THAT UTILIZES AN OVERMODED RESONANT CAVITY TO COUPLE POWER TO WOOD. THE DEVICE WILL BE MUCH MORE ENERGY-EFFICIENT THAN CAPACITOR-PLATE DEVICES THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN USE. THE INCREASE IN ENERGY EFFICIENCY COMPARED TO CAPACITOR-PLATE DEVICES IS GREAT ENOUGH THAT THE INITIAL COST OF OUR PROPOSED DRYER WILL BE RECOVERED IN JUST A FEW YEA ...

  10. FOREIGN MATERIAL DETECTION SYSTEM FOR FOOD ITEMS

    SBC: Omega International Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ON-LINE X-RAY SYSTEM FOR DETECTING FOREIGN MATERIAL CONTAMINATION IN RAW, IN-PROCESS AND PACKAGED FOOD ITEMS. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WOULD DETECT VERY SMALL PIECES OF METAL, GLASS, BONE, ROCK, PLASTIC AND OTHER KINDS OF FOREIGN MATERIAL CONTAMINATION IN THE FOOD PRODUCTS AT FACTORY SPEED. THE PROPOSER HAS ALREADY PROVEN THE INITIAL FEASIBILITY OF SUCH A CONCEPT. THE PRESENT C ...
