  1. Solid State Sensor System for Inspection of Prestressed Concrete Pressure Pipe

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A

    An important type of water pipe is the Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP). There are thousands of miles of PCCP installed in the US in sections with length up to 20 feet and diameter for 2 to 14 feet. The large size of the pipes, the thickness of the concrete (up to 10 inches) and the composite construction, which involved concrete, high strength prestressing steel wires and sheet steel c ...

  3. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    We propose to develop anew monitor that provides composition information of particles in the ultrafine (10-100 nm) fine (100 nm– 2.5 µm) and coarse (2.5 – 10 µm) size modes in near real time. Particle monitoring technologies are important for better characterization of the environmental, health and visibility effects of both anthropogenic and biogenic aerosol particles. Current monitoring t ...

  4. Remote Electronic Medical Devices using the Integrated Clinical Environment (REMDICE)

    SBC: DocBox Inc            Topic: SOCOM13003

    Generation of a single platform with multiple functional units requires a"fresh"approach. Battlefield CONOPS requires the immediate availability of multiple sensors and active devices. The sensors include: ultrasound, capnography, blood pressure measurement using non-invasive techniques, pulse oximetry, non-invasive hemoglobin measurement, electrocardiography and video laryngoscopy. Each of the ...

  5. Over the Horizon Underwater Communications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM13002

    In this proposal we describe our approach and anticipated results concerning the use of a novel and innovative method for providing Over-The-Horizon (OTH) L-band links between a submerged tracking device and an overhead satellite without the requirement for an on or above surface antenna. The encapsulation of an antenna in a dielectrically compensating tethered cocoon that includes a sensor and m ...

  6. Environmentally-Benign Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTEE) Coating for Mold Release

    SBC: GVD CORPORATION            Topic: C

    GVD proposed to develop high performance, VOC-free and PFOA-free, non-stick mold release coating based on its novel PTFE (Polytetraflouroethylene) fluoropolymer technology. Most commercial mold release agents make use of organic solvents and vaporize during drying, creating a significant air quality impact. Even water-based formulations often require the use of fluorinated surfactant additives to ...

  7. Acrolein Monitor Using Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Adsorption

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

    If the QRCFC penetrated just 20% of the truck APU market, it will result in the reduction of over 12,000 tons of NOx, 20160 tons of CO, 544 tons of particulate, and 1.5 million tons of CO2 emissions each year. Besides this important application, the QRCFC could also provide similar benefits to military and civilian boat, mobile power and remote power applications. These represent a market of ove ...

  8. Low-Cost Instrument for Long-Term Monitoring of Hazardous Contaminants in Drinking Water

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The EPA has stated a need for technologies and instruments to monitor and warn of the presence of toxic contaminants in drinking water. An innovative device that could detect, identify and localize hazardous chemical contaminants in drinking water would be immensely valuable to water utility operators, emergency response personnel, and other decision-making officials charged with protecting the n ...

  9. Wireless Electrochemical ClO2 Monitor for Decontamination Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified the need for an accurate and field-rugged instrument to monitor Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2) for use in monitoring building decontamination operations. The proposed Phase I study will evaluate the feasibility of designing and fabricating an advanced electrochemical ClO2 sensor, utilizing integrated solid polymer electrolyte proton-conduct ...

  10. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: N/A

    Because of the relatively high cost of biomass feedstocks compared to fossil fuels, biomass conversion processes must be highly efficient in order to provide a new-term contribution to the U.S. energy balance. Biodiesel is recognized as an important potential fuel, which is obtained by relatively simple esterification of fats or seed oils (soybean, rapeseed, etc.). In the manufacture of biodiese ...
