  1. Station Keeping Drifting Data Buoy for Ocean and Meteorological Data Retrieval in Severe Marine Environments

    SBC: LBI, INC.            Topic: 823

    The proposed system is for a lightweight air-deployable expendable system capable of performing functions similar to existing ocean meteorological drifters, with the additional capability of maintaining station and/or repositioning itself on command. The system will keep station better by the sea anchor effect of the inactive tow motor, and has the ability to automatically regain station by towin ...

  2. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  4. Wireless Magnetic Workzone System

    SBC: VehicleSense Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II we will develop a work zone collision system consisting of "smart barrels" and a central communications computer. The "smart barrels" will incorporate magnetic sensors, an LED display and wireless communications resulting in a unit that can accurately measure the speed of passing vehicles and relay this information to adjacent barrels and the central communications computer. The ...

  5. An Integrated Membrane-based Process Train for Reducing Costs of Ethanol Production

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Production of ethanol derived from starch crops and biomass is forecast to grow considerably in the next decade. There exist opportunities for significant reductions in ethanol production costs and associated energy usage via employment of innovative process operations. Many of these processes involve membranes, which provide cost savings due primarily to reduced energy consumption. Recently, new ...

  6. Fouling-Resistant Inorganic MF Membrane for Improved Food and Beverage Processing

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened, especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites. Varroa destructor, in particular, is lethal to many colonies, decimating both feral and managed honey ...

  7. Development of Horticultural Containers from Anaerobically-digested Cow Manure

    SBC: Freund`s Farm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Freunds Farm has developed an innovative process that transforms cow manure into valueadded, biodegradable containers for horticultural use, called CowPotsO. These CowPotsOturn manure from a burden into a profit center. Work performed to date has demonstrated that small quantities of pots can be molded from manure that offer the desired characteristics of biodegradability and decomposability, pene ...

  8. Development of acoustic cavitation based affordable milk processing technology for small rural dairy farms

    SBC: Harris Acoustic Products Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Milk supply by the small dairy farms to the local markets not only reduces transportation costs but also provides cultural and economic benefits to the communities. However, the majority of the milk processing operations are carried out in large plants at the wholesale level. Such capacities and the large capital requirement act as a barrier to entry for small farmers and prohibit them to get a b ...

  9. Biofuel Production by Continuous Acetone-Butanol-Ethanol (ABE) Ferementation Coupled with Membrane Separation

    SBC: Porogen Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Butanol is a liquid fuel superior to ethanol that can be produced from renewable biomass by the acetone-butanol-ethanol (ABE) fermentation process. However, the ABE fermentation process economics is hampered by low conversion rate due to severe product inhibition and by energy intensive product recovery (traditionally by distillation). The overall objective of this combined Phase I and Phase II pr ...

  10. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...
