  2. Advanced Locomotive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 121FR3

    At present, trains use various dissipative braking systems to slow and stop, and this significant braking energy is ultimately converted to heat and wasted. APEI, Inc. has proposed a hybrid tender which can capture and reuse a significant fraction of this braking energy (at least 50%). The hybrid tender draws power from the rails using a regenerative braking technique rather than by being electr ...

  4. ElectroDynamic Shield for Prevention of Optical Surface Contamination

    SBC: Poly Adaptive LLC            Topic: 122FR2

    The Federal Railroad Administration’s (FRA) Automated Track Inspection Program uses optical systems such as cameras or laser-based systems to monitor rail performance throughout the country. These systems are hindered by adverse weather conditions that allow water, dirt and mud to coat their optical components resulting in unwanted maintenance costs. Thus FRA is seeking a low-cost, practical s ...

  6. Genetic sex reversal of rainbow trout

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 87

    A majority of rainbow trout produced in the US are derived from all-female stocks due to improved harvest traits and efficiency over mixed sex stocks. The development of all-female stocks currently relies on the use of the testosterone derivative 17 & #945; & #8722;methyltestosterone, however the long term use of this method is not guaranteed as regulations governing the use of the substan ...
