  1. On-Site Multiple Pollutant Monitor

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

    Major improvements in process control, compliance monitoring, and environmental decisionmaking could be made if more accurate, less costly, more rugged techniques were available for continuous monitoring of multiple gas phase pollutants. As part of the solution, Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy is emerging as a promising Field Analytical Method (FAM) for multiple gas monitoring. H ...

  2. Laser Diode Array for Multiple Pollutant Monitoring

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared tunable diode laser spectrometers provide a highly effective means of measuring trace concentrations, with either remote sensing or with advective sampling. It is often desirable to measure more than one trace gas at a time. This is especially true when gas emissions are strongly correlated, such as in combustion emissions where measuring both the CO2 concentration and another minor con ...

  3. Measurement of Biological Contamination of Water

    SBC: Maine Research and Technology Co, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) can sometimes be used as a diagnostic device in biology and medicine. In general, LIF has difficulties in relating the fluorescence spectra to the concentration of the emitters within the tissue, in identifying different species, and in the possibility of destroying the molecules being probed if the wrong excitation wavelength is chosen. Many of the problems asso ...

  4. rRNA Hybridization Assay for Cryptosporidium

    SBC: SYMBIOTECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current methods of testing water supplies for Cryptosporidium parvum are inadequate. The lack of a reliable test led the EPA to postpone enactment of its Information Collection Rule for 2 years. The rule was recently enacted, despite any further development in testing methodologies. The EPA-approved test detects between 5% and 21% of the total Cryptosporidium known to be present in a sample. Thi ...

  5. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

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

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...

  6. Advanced Cable Connector Concepts

    SBC: Alden Products Co.            Topic: N/A

    Existing materials used for marine cable connectors each have drawbacks in terms of cost or performance. Alden Products Company proposes a program to develop a family of cable connectors and adapters that lower the present cost/performance barrier in two ways; through the use of alternative materials and through new manufacturing methods using the existing materials. The main goals of P ...

  7. Optical Rotman Beamforming Lens for Multi-Function RF/Microwave/Millimeter Wave Antenna Systems

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this six-month Phase I program, ANRO Engineering, Inc. proposes to investigate the properties of compact, low-cost, two-dimensional fiber optic and integrated optic Rotman lenses for application to wideband, multi-function RF/microwave/millimeter wave antenna (MFA) systems. The photonic Rotman lens will enable the reception and transmission of simultaneous, multiple frequency, independent ...

  8. Low Cost, Fiber Optic Array, Using Continuous Component Construction

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Significant advances have been made over the past few years in all optical arrays. Low cost optical sensors have been produced and demonstrated along with optical telemetry capable of multiplexing many sensors onto a single optical fiber. Although the new optical sensors and telemetry designs have come a long way toward making optical arrays an economic reality, the array construction they ...

  9. COMPUTER-BASED ADAPTIVE TUTOR FOR ADULT READING COMPREHENSION

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a computer-based adaptive tutor to improve the reading comprehension skills of adult readers. Our instructional strategy is based on the Reciprocal Teaching method, demonstrated to improve reading comprehension. The "scaffolded" Reciprocal Teaching method demonstrates strategies for full reading comprehension, then gradually withdraws instruction, encouraging learners to pra ...

  10. Laser Beam Delivery in a Fiberoptic with Corrected Phase by a Phase Conjugate Mirror

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen System proposes an innovative technology for correcting the phase of a high power laser beam delivered via a multimode fiberoptic. The proposed system has an architecture lending itself to a broad variety of applications that range from ladars to medical catheters. Keeping the commercial applications in perspective, the laser source and other bulky components are positioned at the back-e ...
