  1. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...

  2. GPS for Precision Farming: A Dense Network of Differential Reference Stations

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

    This research proposes development of a low-cost, Wide Area Differential GPS (WADGPS) capability utilizing a dense network of multiple reference receivers (RR). The research will focus on determination of possible resolution with the dense network of reference receivers as applied to precision farming applications. "Resolution" is defined as repeatability vs. accuracy at a location once a Differ ...

  6. Production Enhancement of Native Indian Food and Medicine Resources

    SBC: Huckleberry Flynn Service            Topic: N/A

    The huckleberry, a major religious, traditional, and cultural native food, is highly significant to the people of the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon. Those cultural, traditional and religious values are being threatened; as huckleberry plants are eliminated from their natural environment through loss of space, water, nutrients, and sunlight, part of the culture and ...

  7. Methane Fuel from Grass Straw and Dairy Manure

    SBC: Northwest Fuel Development, In            Topic: N/A

    Methane will be generated from the anaerobic fermentation of waste grass straw mixed with dairy manure. The fuel will be used for power generation using internal combustion engines. The mixing of the two wastes provides a synergistic effect whereby the combination of feedstocks generates more methane than the individual streams. Preliminary laboratory tests have shown that grass straw and dairy ...

  8. Early Plant Stress Detection Filters/Glasses

    SBC: Optical Sales Corp            Topic: N/A

    NASA Ames Research Center entered into a SPACE ACT/Technology Transfer Agreement with Optical Sales Corporation (3/94) to commercialize advanced optical filter technology based on research from NASA scientist Dr. Leonard Haslim. The filters (passive chlorophyll detectors) discriminate the reflective spectra of chlorophyll bearing vegetation by exaggerating the visual effects of incipient chlorosi ...

  9. Production of an Effective Low Cost Drilling Fluid Additive from Waste Sugar Beet Pulp

    SBC: R. L. Clampitt And            Topic: N/A

    This project will investigate a cost-effective method of producing a new oil and gas drilling fluid additive from spent sugar beet pulp, a by-product and waste material from the sugar beet processing industry. The product has the potential of replacing other drilling fluid additives, (a) asbestos, which is an effective additive but which is no longer used because of environmental concerns, (b) CM ...
