  1. Development of an in situ Thermal Extraction Detection System (TEDS) for Rapid, Accurate, Quantitative Analysis of Environmental Pollutants in the Subsurface

    SBC: Ion Signature Technology, Inc.            Topic: 08NCERH1

    Ion Signature Technology, Inc. (IST) will develop and market a collection and analysis system that will retrieve soil-bound pollutants as well as soluble and non-soluble contaminants from groundwater as the probe is pushed by cone penetrometry of Geoprobe into the subsurface. The goal of this project is to detect in real-time the wide range of compounds listed in EPA Method 8260 (VOCs) and 8270 ( ...

  2. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  5. OCEAN WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER

    SBC: Ocean Wave Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    MAJOR AIDS TO NAVIGATION (ATON) ARE ESSENTIAL SIGNPOSTS FOR SAFE PASSAGE ALONG COASTAL AND OFFSHORE SEAWAYS. PRESENTLY, THEIR SIGNALS ARE POWERED BY ON-SITE ENGINE GENERATORS REQUIRING CONSIDERABLE AND COSTLY MAINTENANCE. ATON AUTONOMY WILL BE GREATLY INCREASED WITH DEEP DISCHARGE BATTERY TECHNOLOGY PROVIDING THAT ON-SITE CHARGING SOURCES ARE USED. AMONG NATURALLY AVAILABLE SOURCES, THE UNCEASING ...

  6. An Inexpensive Structural Core Material for Composite Bridges

    SBC: Polymer Bridge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polymer Bridge Systems, with over 8 years of research composite bridges, found that success hinges on being dollar-for-dollar cost competitive with steel and concrete. We founded the four "golden rules" that are required: the bridge must be: 1) factory build; 2) road transportable; 3) installed in 1 eight-hour day; and 4) be cost-competitive on an installed cost basis. This bridge will be buil ...

  7. STRESSMETER FOR MEASURING DYNAMIC BRIDGE STRESSES

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS FOR A COMPACT, PORTABLE SYSTEM CAPABLE OF MEASURING DYNAMIC STRESSES INDUCED BY HEAVY TRUCKS IN THE STRU- TURAL MEMBERS OF BRIDGES. USE OF STATE-OF-OF THE-ART ELEC- TRONIC CIRCUITRY NOW ALLOWS CONSTRUCTION OF A HYBRID ANALOG-DIGITAL INDICATOR THATCAN DISPLAY THE PEAK STRESSES A BRIDGEEXPERIENCES BY USING DATA FROM STRAIN SENSORS ATTACHED TO THE BRIDGE. THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING SUC ...

  9. RECOVERY OF METALS FROM AQUEOUS WASTE STREAMS VIA ELECTROLYTIC RECOVERY UTILIZING A FLUIDIZED POWDER CATHODE

    SBC: Covofinish Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW SYSTEM FOR THE ELECTROLYTIC RECOVERY OF METALS FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS WITH A UNIQUE ELECTRODE CONFIGURATION IS PROPOSED. THIS SYSTEM WOULD USE A CATHODE CONSISTING OF A LIQUID FLUIDIZED BED OF METAL POWDER, CARBON POWDER, OR METALLIZED PLASTIC BALLS. THE CATHODE SHOULD PROVIDE A SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER SURFACE AREA THAN A STANDARD SOLID CATHODE AND CONSEQUENTLY WILL INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF T ...

  10. Limestone-Based Material for Arsenic Removal From Drinking Water

    SBC: HydroTech Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Arsenic contamination of groundwater is a problem facing many areas of the United States and the rest of the world. This problem has been highlighted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency¿s decision to mandate reductions in the acceptable level of arsenic in drinking water from 50 ppb to 10 ppb by the year 2006. In South Dakota alone, 18.6 percent of small and rural water supply systems w ...
