  1. HF Radar Calibration with Automatic Identification System Ships of Opportunity

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 841

    Over 300 HF RADARs worldwide are producing ocean surface data that is used in oil spill response, search & rescue, vessel traffic management, and research. In the U.S. there are 100+ systems supplying real-time data to the Coast Guard, NOAA IOOS, OR&R and other operational groups. To provide the highest quality data to stakeholders, systems should be calibrated by measuring the receive antenna p ...

  2. Cost Competitive Wave Energy Without Moving Parts

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Oscilla Power, Inc. (OPI) is developing a utility-scale wave energy harvester that is enabled by low cost and readily-available magnetostrictive alloys. T his device, which utilizes no moving parts, has the potential to deliver predictable quantities of electric power to coastal utilities, industrial users, and remote facilities at costs competitive with coal or gas. The Phase I project demonstra ...

  3. Optical Fiber Sensor for Plant Nutrients


    The problem: Nutrient concentration has a direct effect on the yield and quality of plants. However, despite their importance, they are frequently over applied and, if their concentration is thought to be incorrect, they are discarded into the environment and replaced with a new solution. This leads to nutrient waste and widespread environmental contamination of aquatic, ground and drinking water ...

  4. Accurate Huanglongbing (HLB) Diagnosis

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Citrus canker, caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri, a bacteria associated with citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) damage, and Huanglongbing (HLB) . Successful completion of this project will provide citrus growers with a valuable tool for managing these two terrifying diseases, and enhance the diagnosis of diseased trees, even in the beginn ...

  5. SPLAT BASE: A Revolutionary Attract And Kill Technology To Effectively Manage Orchard Pests.

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Our Phase I research and development in laboratory bioassays, wind tunnel, caged trees, and small field trials, indicates that different approaches are needed to maximize contact of the moth with the source containing the insecticide. We found that optimizing an attract and kill formulation that actually attracts and kills the males, instead of disrupting their orientation, is a fine balancing act ...

  6. Compostable Packaging from Agricultural Residues

    SBC: WORLD CENTRIC            Topic: 88

    $14.8 billion of foodservice disposables and packaging (plates, utensils, take out containers, meat trays, bowls etc.) are purchased each year in USA (Freedonia 2009). They are mostly made from Styrofoam/plastics and cause pollution and toxicity in production, usage and disposal. Cities and consumers are looking to increase landfill diversion rates and reduce pollution. Compostable products are st ...

  7. Venting of Underground Storage Tanks Containing Ethanol-Gasoline Blends

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 88

    Vapors produced during the process of refueling cars are a significant source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) emissions. Uncontrolled emissions cause economic losses and pollute the environment. This problem is exacerbated when the gasoline contains bioethanol because its presence increases the vapor pressure and volatility of the fuel. These increased fuel emissions from ethanol-gasoline ble ...

  8. Novel approach to NOx reduction in biogas engine exhaust from anaerobic digestion facilities at dairy farms.

    SBC: BIOGAS & ELECTRIC, LLC            Topic: 811

    Biogas & Electric LLC proposes a novel low cost approach to NOx and SO2 removal through a combination of extended absorption and selective non-catalytic reduction. If efficacy in the proposed NOx removal process can be shown, the new method will be adopted by all proposed manure based anaerobic digestion projects in California, and shortly thereafter adopted by many other manure based anaerobic di ...

  9. Solvent Recovery from Vegetable Oil Miscella by Novel Solvent-Resistant Nanofiltration Membranes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 85

    Soybean is the major source for production of edible oils worldwide and in United States. Pressing of the soybean into flakes followed by the solvent extraction with hexane (solvent) is most widely practiced for extraction of oil. Separation of solvent from oil-solvent mixture for solvent recovery and reuse is usually carried out by solvent evaporation. Evaporation (or distillation) demands consid ...

  10. Field Device for Determining Atomization Properties of Agrochemical Tank Mixes


    Responsible and efficient use of agrochemicals is a balance between mitigating the undesirable drift and other off-site movement and optimizing the efficacy of the applied spray. Often, these demands can be in direct conflict, e.g., very large droplets reduce drift but may run off the target or may be ineffective against pests on leaf undersides. Depending on the immediate weather conditions, the ...
