  1. Smart Pipeline Network- Cased Pipe for Monitoring and Sensor System

    SBC: Odyssian Technology, L.L.C.            Topic: 121PH3

    This PHMSA SBIR focuses on the development of a new multi-channel cased in pipe design with internal support structure that will allow access along its entire axial length while adequately securing the carrier pipe to the containment pipe. When combined with the Seal Sensor System (proposed separately), this technology will allow a Smart Pipeline Network having integrated sensor networks that pro ...

  2. Smart Pipeline Network- Pipe & Repair Sensor System

    SBC: Odyssian Technology, L.L.C.            Topic: 121PH2

    This PHMSA SBIR focuses on the development of a Pipe and Repair Sensor System. When combined with the Seal Sensor System (proposed separately), this technology will allow for a Smart Pipeline Network having integrated sensor networks that provide for continuous real-time monitoring of leaks and system health. In this program, smart pipes and smart composites repair having integrated leak detecti ...

  5. Ambient Temperature Oxidation Catalyst for Ethylene Control in Fresh Produce Containers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The respiration of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF & V) converts oxygen from the surrounding atmosphere into carbon dioxide, moisture and ethylene. While ethylene is used under controlled conditions as a ripening agent, the presence of even small amounts of ethylene gas in shipping and storage containers causes most fresh produce to deteriorate faster, potentially spoiling it before it reaches the ...

  6. Over the Top Citrus Harvesting Equipment for Fresh Markets in High Density Groves

    SBC: GEO-SPIDER, INCORPORATED            Topic: 813

    Phase I of this project will seek to establish feasibility of the selective harvesting system for high density grove through scaled prototype testing. Our focus will be on developing a new end effector concept with an integrated hyper-redundant forearm, along with an integrated fruit detection sensory suite. This system will be integrated and tested using our most advanced image processing and vis ...

  7. Innovative high-airflow smokehouse design with novel method of controlling airflow to cook faster&to reduce temperature&color variation

    SBC: HANSON, ROBERT            Topic: 85

    Industrial smokehouses are large forced-air convection batch ovens used to cook and smoke meat products such as bacon, ham, bologna, whole turkeys, chicken breast, snack sticks, jerky, smoked sausage, hotdogs, sliced luncheon meats, and other smoked meats. These huge smokehouses are crucial to the operation of the American meat industry, yet in the past two decades, the design of these ovens has s ...

  8. Phosphorus removal from ethanol thin stillage to produce a low phosphorus livestock feed and a valuable granular fertilizer.

    SBC: KANSAS ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: 84

    Grain ethanol production byproducts or ?coproducts? are commonly used in modern beef finishing rations. The term distillers grains (DGS) is intended to include these and similar coproducts. The expansion of the ethanol industry has led to the wide spread availability and economic pricing of DGS, resulting in significant amounts of DGS being commonly included in beef finishing rations. The fermenta ...

  9. Mechanical Scrubber for Aquaculture Netting

    SBC: LINDGREN-PITMAN, INC.            Topic: 87

    Net cleaning and maintenance represent a significant cost in the aquaculture industry. Clean nets are essential in maintaining a healthy stock, and achieving optimal yield. Fouled nets also generate drag, and the dirtier the net, the higher the loading on moored structures in the farm, which could lead to failures. However, few options exist that are truly efficient in terms of their consumption o ...

  10. Novel low cost extraction of algal oils used in fish feeds

    SBC: PHYCO BIOLOGICS, INC            Topic: 87

    Fish consumption has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Unfortunately, this increase in demand for fish has resulted in an alarming depletion of the natural fisheries. With the closure of many marine fisheries due to over-harvesting and the increased domestic demand for fish it is evident that alternatives to harvesting fish from the wild need to be developed. Aquaculture is a rapidly ...
