  2. Stress and Geometry Imaging from Outside the Pipeline

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 111PH1

    There is a well defined, yet unfulfilled need for a convenient (non-contact, light weight) and rapid imaging tool for multi-directional, thru-wall stresses (both applied and residual) from the outside of a pipeline. Quantitative stress imaging is needed at mechanical damage and corrosion sites, as well as at other critical locations (dents, bends, etc.). JENTEK is uniquely positioned to deliver ...

  3. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    In Phase I, we developed a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting. In this system, both IR LED stereo camera and laser scanner were selected for use. We have demonstrated that our pedestrian counting system can count multiple pedestrians walking in a large group, maintain individual tracks even when some pedestrians walk in unpredictable patterns or leave the crosswalk prematur ...

  4. Sequence Specific, Nucleic Acid Separation Media for Plant Pathogen Diagnostics

    SBC: Agdia, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Commercial producers of nursery crops, plant seed, and food crops all require assurance of healthy planting stock. To address this need, laboratories, institutions and agencies, worldwide, use a variety of methods to examine plant materials and demonstrate that seeds, cuttings, and plants test free of pathogens. Such tests provide crops a passport to travel and give the grower confidence that a he ...

  5. Silver Ion Formulations for the Control of Bacterial Plant Pathogens and to Reduce Bactericide Resistance and Health Risks

    SBC: AGION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 82

    While bacteria cause fewer plant diseases than fungi and viruses, they do cause serious economic damages to both US and worldwide agriculture. Citrus canker caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis has resulted in the destruction of over 20 million trees in Florida, while fire blight caused by Erwinia amylovora costs exceed $100 million per year in the United States alone, and recent epidemics have cost o ...

  6. Modular Shading Structure for High Value Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: 813

    Shading vegetables and fruits can reduce temperatures resulting in improved fruit set, increase fruit size and quality, and reduce water consumption. Shading materials for reducing light intensity or transmission have been used extensively in the nursery industry as well as with large commercial growers of high value fruits and vegetables for many years. The physiological processes of plants have ...

  8. Robust Airborne Wind Turbine Shroud for Production of Low Cost Renewable Energy

    SBC: Altaeros Energies, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Hundreds of existing wind power projects have transformed communities by creating jobs, improving economic development, and reducing environmental pollution. However, 85 percent of rural communities cannot utilize wind power today due to community concerns or poor wind resources at ground level that make projects uneconomical. Altaeros Energies is developing an airborne wind turbine that adapts pr ...
