  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 ...

  3. Addressing the Driving Needs of Short Stature Persons

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: 04NH1

    Phase I research on the development of a supplemental seating system for short stature drivers was undertaken by Safe Inc. in 2005. The purpose of Phase I was to demonstrate the feasibility of a device that would improve the ability of short stature drivers to safely operate a motor vehicle and to improve occupant crash safety. The study sought to examine the use of pedal extenders and other imp ...

  4. Plant-based BioProduction of Chicken IL-12 Adjuvant for Bird Flu Vaccine

    SBC: Biostratagies, LC            Topic: N/A

    The primary focus of this project is to develop new high valued health related agricultural products through the application of biotechnological research approaches. Domestic and wild fowl, as the disease reservoir for avian influenza virus, play a central role in the re-emergence of this potentially pandemic disease pathogen. The increasing threat of pandemic flu in domestic fowl and human popula ...

  5. The Development of an Environmentally Compliant and Cost Effective On-Site Animal Manure Management Composting Technology

    SBC: ENGINEERED COMPOST SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Animal Manure Management is a major challenge to dairies and CAFO's with respect to efficient resource use, farm economics and environmental impacts. Composting is an established process for converting animal manure into other value-added products such as soil amendment and animal bedding material. However, current agricultural composting practices do not generally address increasingly stringent a ...

  6. Beneficiation of Chipped and Shredded Woody Biomass

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Our firm has been cooperating with engineers and scientists to develop materials that can be made from shredded woody debris. Field work during those projects put us in contact with many contractors and community-based organizations who were frustrated with the lack of markets for "chipped" woody biomass. We found that most community-based wildfire protection program leaders were unaware of the qu ...

  7. An Automated Tool for Deriving FARSITE Canopy Fuel Parameters from Airborne LiDAR Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The USDA is the managing agency for 192.5 million acres, much of which is national forest. A major threat to national forests is uncontrolled wildland fires. These fires are a serious threat to goods and services provided by national forests, including natural resources (timber), forage for livestock and wildlife, outdoor recreation, and a vector to sequester carbon. Healthy forests provide habita ...

  8. Mass-Rearing Predators for Augmentation Biological Control of Balsam Woolly Adelgids in Fraser Fir Plantations

    SBC: INSECT DIET & REARING INSTITUTE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    PROBLEM: Efforts to control balsam woolly adelgids (BWA) with conventional pesticides have failed, and natural enemy populations are too sparse to effectively control BWA, an exotic pest destroying natural and cultivated firs in the US, including Fraser firs in Christmas tree plantations. We propose to develop the technology for a diet-based mass rearing system for brown lacewings to control BWA i ...

  9. Buhl Ethanol Project: Co-producing Ethanol and Barley Protein Using Local Resources

    SBC: MONTANA MICROBIAL PRODUCTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The phase II project combines fuel ethanol production with manufacturing of a protein concentrate to create a new industry in a rural south Idaho community. In phase 1 research, MMP demonstrated technical feasibility of a process to produce ethanol and protein concentrate as co products from barley. The use of barley addresses irrigation constraints in south Idaho by creating increased value for a ...

  10. Seedster Technology for more Seed Recovery, less impurities, and faster ground speed harvesting camelina and canola for biodiesel feedstock

    SBC: NATIVE SEEDSTERS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Native Seedsters, Inc will test patented technology to recover camelina seed (Camelina sativa). Seedster principles appear apt for camelina. The Seedster counter-rotating brush and a combing drum form a `pinch point'. The comb teeth position seed stems. The brush dislodges seed and few impurities. Rapid brush rotation creates air to propel plucked seed into the conveyance system. Camelina grows on ...
