  1. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

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

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  2. Autonomous Pack Ice Vibration Monitoring System

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The characteristics of flexural-gravity wave propagation in Arctic pack ice, including wave speed as a function of frequency and the frequency of peak energy, depend on the spatially averaged ice thickness. Thus a system which records these characteristics can be used to monitor changes in the average thickness of the pack ice. This is vital to understanding and predicting global climate change. H ...

  4. Pathogen-derived Resistance To Whitefly-

    SBC: Exelixis Plant Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The whitefly pest and vector, and the geminiviruses that it transmits, have become the principaldeterrents to vegetable production in the U.S. sunbelt states, in Mexico, and throughout the CaribbeanBasin since the introduction and spread of the B biotype whitefly vector in the late 1980's. The mosteffective means of controlling geminivirus-incited diseases is through resistant tomato varieties. ...

    SBC: Flugstad Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The ability to measure the hydraulic infiltration and permeability properties of soils and various geotechnical materials is a growing need in science and engineering with the increased emphasis on groundwater quality protection, water conservation, erosion control and other water relevant issues. These measurements have classically been performed on soils using various forms of infiltrometer and ...

  6. Rural Distributed Manufacturing Systems


    Phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed Rural Distributed ManufacturingSystem (RDMS). The RDMS concept has the potential to bring new jobs to rural states.The RDMS is a disciplined framework that ties together technologies and operating techniques todistribute manufacturing work over a region. The RDMS will integrate dispersed laborresources, enabling the manufacture of ...

    SBC: Oregon Soil Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Disposal of organic wastes, including animal, food garden and industrial wastes, is expensive and can create environmental problems. High technology vermicomposting systems can convert such wastes into valuable horticultural growth media or soil amendments. The value of these to the horticultural industry was demonstrated clearly in Phase I research. The Oregon Soil Corporation has operated a cont ...

  8. A Real-time Cracked Grain Monitor For

    SBC: PHOTON-X, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Phase I research will demonstrate the feasibility of a new cracked grain monitor that can mount directlyonto a combine to detect breakage in a variety of clean grains while they are being harvested. Whenintegrated into a closed-loop threshing control system, this sensor will greatly improve the quality ofgrain by providing real-time monitoring and control of cracked grain percentages, will reduce ...

  9. Using Information System Technology to Support Educational

    SBC: Center for Resource Management            Topic: N/A

    The project will determine the technical feasibility of developing state-of-the art information system technology for districts and schools that addresses the accountability, planning, management, and evaluation functions essential to achieving comprehensive education reform and increased productivity in education. This research and development effort aims to overcome the serious lack of informat ...

    SBIR Phase I 1997 Department of Education


    The proposed research is aimed at developing a new molecular recognition technology for drug discovery. Stable liposome-based biosensors, called Biosomes TM, turn from blue to red in response to a specific molecular recognition event. The Biosomes can be functionalized with a specific receptor ligand or enzyme substrate so that they respond specifically to a particular receptor or enzyme. Our aim ...
