  1. Electronic Trap for Automated Monitoring of Insect Populations

    SBC: Spensa Technologies Inc.            Topic: 813

    Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an ecological approach to managing insect pests in agricultural crops, which involves analyzing comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests, their interaction with the environment, past and current conditions of the crop field, etc., in order to provide growers with pest management decisions that are optimal both economically and environmentally. Frequ ...

  2. A Particulate Mass Flux Sensor for the Food Process Industry

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 85

    Currently, there is no suitable method of monitoring the mass flux of particulate material such as flour, sugar, chocolate chips, etc. for a continuous production process. Therefore, many of the food products are manufactured using batch processes, with very high inefficiencies and wide variation in the quality of the end product. If a continuous particulate mass flux sensor were available, then f ...

  4. Solar Thermal Energy Storage Vessel

    SBC: SERTECH HEATING & AC INC            Topic: N/A

    Historically, the collection and conversion of sunlight into stored energy has been too limited and too inefficient to take advantage of this abundant, renewable resource. Mathematical modeling of a new proprietary medium mixture indicates very high conversion efficiencies from sunlight into a storable form of high temperature solar energy. The purpose of this research is to construct a test vesse ...
