  1. Full Spectrum Complete IOP Instrument Suite

    SBC: HOBI Labs, Inc.            Topic: 821

    In the Phase I effort, we developed conceptual designs and methods for novel oceanographic optical instruments that measure a complete set of water inherent optical properties across the full visible spectrum at high spectral resolution. One instrument is a new type of in-situ absorption meter that maintains high accuracy over a wide range of water optical properties, from the clearest waters to ...

  2. A Vibrationally-enhanced Aquaculture Treatment System (VEATS) for Water Reuse and Effluent Management

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 842

    Because of the severe impact of diseases on production and the environmental devastation created by many commercial aquaculture effluents, modern methods of intensive aquaculture are evolving which rely heavily on recirculating the water. This proposal addresses the need for a modular, integrated technology in closed-loop aquaculture operations by enhancing the performance of a fluidized ion exch ...

  3. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    SAFE proposes to design and develop a boarding device for heavy rail passenger cars. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers regardless of mobility from a wide range of platform configurations. Once installed on a passenger railcar, that car can be used with any of four platform configurations: high level platforms close to the car, high level platforms with partial setbac ...

  4. An Innovative Supplemental Automotive Seating System for Short-Stature Individuals

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    Individuals who are of short stature face impediments when driving automobiles due to their inability to effectively operate vehicle controls, to clearly see the external roadway environment, and to properly use the vehicle restraint system. These impediments could be largely removed if a device could be developed to elevate the driver to a sitting position similar to that afforded to average hei ...

  5. Soybean Oil Based High Performance Nanocomposites

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Epoxidized soybean oil has not been evaluated as a composite matrix to create high performance composites A. Natural fibers and nanoclay particulates will be evaluated as matrix additives to the epoxidized soybean oil. B. The purpose of this study is to evaluate an extrusion based freeforming process to align the fibers and obtain improved mechanical properties.

  6. Enhancing Mycoherbicide Storage Capabilities Through Encapsulation Technology

    SBC: Agricultural Resch Init            Topic: N/A

    Although biocontrol technology, including mycoherbicides, has been investigated for a long period of time, few products have actually made it into the commercial loop. The reasons for this are varied and include unfavorable environmental conditions, small markets and poor shelf-life. The test mycoherbicide candidate in this project, A. destruens, is plagued by poor shelf-life and storage capabilit ...

  7. Performance of Innovative Native Seed Harvester

    SBC: Arbuckle Ranch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Every year natural and man-caused disturbances (wildfire, construction of highways and facilities, mining, noxious weeds infestation, and overgrazing) damage and destroy millions of hectares of native vegetation. These vast disturbances require restoration and federal entities emphasize the use of native plant materials. Without restorative intervention, land recovery may take decades, leaving eco ...

  8. Linear Incendiary Device and Method of Prescribed Fire Ignition

    SBC: Arctos Research            Topic: N/A

    Solutions to help overcome the present limitations in conducting prescribed burning could help land managers in their efforts to accomplish needed fuels reduction in the forests. Opportunities exist for developing improvements in the methods and materials used in the ground-based ignition of prescribed fires. Improved ignition techniques could enable managers to conduct burns at times where weathe ...

  9. Phase II: VAM-Gro: Alternative Growth Media to Promote VAM Colonization

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VAM inoculum is commonly specified for large-scale plant production contracts throughout the United States, including revegetation efforts associated with fire rehabilitation, mine reclamation, conservation plantings, contaminated site cleanup, and other activities. These activities represent a continuous expenditure of public and private funds worth several hundred-million dollars annually. A maj ...

  10. Range Tech DSS: Decision Support System for Rangeland Health Monitoring

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current systems for acquiring and accessing rangeland health data are inadequate to meet the needs of an increasingly complex management process that requires public accountability. Traditional field-based data acquisition, such as visual assessment, quadrat, and point frame methods are highly subjective, time consuming or too costly to practically apply over large land management units. While the ...
