  1. APPLYING FIBER OPTIC SENSORS TO REAL-WORLD INDUSTRIAL PROBLEMS

    SBC: Future Focus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER OPTIC SENSORS HAVE VERY ATTRACTIVE FEATURES FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS. BECAUSE THEY USE NONCONDUCTING SILICA INSTEAD OF WIRES, THEY CAN OPERATE IN HIGH ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD ENVIRONMENTS AND EXPLOSION HAZARD AREAS. THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE 1980S WERE THAT FIBER OPTIC SENSOR USAGE WOULD BE OVER $100M PER YEAR IN 1993; ACTUAL SALES WERE UNDER $20M. THE ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE ERROR WAS IN PART DUE ...

  2. A SIMPLE METHOD FOR SOLUBILITY TESTING OF RADIONUCLIDES ON AIR FILTER

    SBC: Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE SOLUBILITY OF AIRBORNE RADIONUCLIDES IS AN IMPORTANT PARAMETER IN THE ASSESSMENT OF INHALATION HAZARDS IN THE WORKPLACE AND IN THE INTERPRETATION OF ROUTINE BIOASSAY DATA. SOLUBILITY IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN DETERMINING THE METABOLISM OF THE INHALED ISOTOPES AND DISSOLUTION RATES OF ALPHA-EMITTING COMPOUNDS WHICH ARE PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT DUE TO THEIR HIGH RADIOTOXICITY. CURRENT SOLUBILITY TESTIN ...

  4. FEASIBILITY FOR DEVELOPING AN ELECTRO-OPTIC-BASED MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR FING GAGES

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID AND ACCURATE MEASUREMENT OF INTERNALLY THREADED HOLES IS ONE OF TODAY'S MORE DIFFICULT MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS. THIS IS PARTICULARLY TRUE IN LIGHT OF THE RECENTLY ADOPTED FASTENER QUALITY ACT (PL 101-595/HR3000) AND MIL-SPEC 7742D FOR CLASS 3 SAFETY-CRITICAL FASTENERS. QUEST HAS PREVIOUSLY DEVELOPED A NUMBER OF MINIATURIZED ELECTRO-OPTIC-BASED MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS THAT WOULD BE ADAPTABLE FOR ...

  5. PRODUCTIVE TERMINAL OPERATIONS

    SBC: William Bradford Hubbard            Topic: N/A

    INCREASING DEMAND FOR INTERNATIONAL INTERMODAL CONTAINER-HANDLING CAPABILITY IS RAPIDLY BEGINNING TO EXCEED THE CAPABILITY OF U.S. WEST COAST PORTS TO PROVIDE FACILITIES TO EFFICIENTLY ACCOMODATE IT. THIS TRAFFIC MUST MAKE THE TRANSITION FROM A MARINE MODE OF TRANSPORT, PRIMARILY TO RAIL TRANSPORT AND VICE VERSA. THE PROCESS AT PRESENT IS INEFFICIENT AND CONSEQUENTLY EXPENSIVE; THE END RESULT IS I ...

  6. COMMERCIALIZATION OF A BIOCONTROL METHOD TO MANAGE TAKE-ALL DISEASE IN PNW WHEAT FIELDS

    SBC: Ag Research & Consulting Co            Topic: N/A

    TAKE-ALL IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ROOT DESEASE OF WHEAT WORLDWIDE. IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, IT CAN BE DEVASTATING AND FARMERS HAVE NO ECONOMICALLY VIABLE METHOD TO CONTROL THE DISEASE. FOR EXAMPLE, RESULTS OF A FORMAL SURVEY IN 1983 REVEALED YIELD REDUCTIONS OF 350,000 TONS OVER THE ENTIRE PNW REGION. RECENT INFORMAL SURVEYS INDICATE THAT THE DISEASE IS NOW EVEN MORE WIDESPREAD THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUG ...

  9. AN ON-LINE WAVEGUIDE REFRACTOMETER FOR THE EDIBLE OIL HYDROGENATION PROCESS

    SBC: COLE ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN OPTICAL WAVEGUIDE OF KNOWN REFRACTIVE INDEX (RI) CHARACTERISTICS BECOMES AN ON-LINE PROCESS REFRACTOMETER FOR MEASURING THE RI, HENCE IODINE VALUE (IV), OF EDIBLE OILS UNDERGOING PARTIAL HYDROGENATION. THE REFRACTOMETER OPERATES IN THE PRESENCE OF NICKEL CATALYST AND DIATOMACEOUS EARTH USED IN THE HYDROGENATION PROCESS. THE CLADLESS WAVEGUIDE, EXCITED BY A MONOCHROMATIC LIGHT SOURCE, WOULD BE I ...

  10. SUBCUTANEOUS INFORMATION STORAGE FOR REPRODUCTION AND HEALTH IN DAIRY CATTLE

    SBC: Detectnology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL IS TO MODIFY-ADD TO A SUBCUTANEOUS IMPLANTABLE DEVICE (SQID) FOR DAIRY CATTLE WHICH WILL SERVE AS AN ELECTRONIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM AND IN-COW INFORMATION STORAGE RESERVOIR. THE SYSTEM WILL BE IMPLANTED IN THE SACRAL REGION OF THE COW. A STAINLESS STEEL CAPSULE CONTAINING ELECTRONIC CIRCUITY AND A COMMUNICATION ANTENNA WILL BE INSERTED SUBCUTANEOUSLY AND WILL BE OPERATIVE FOR THE LIFETI ...
