  1. Improved Water Level Measurement System

    SBC: Sutron Corporation            Topic: 8311

    This project provides a preliminary design and specifications for a Data Collection Platform with Interrogate (DCPI) capability using DS-CDMA RF transmission techniques. Sutron shall develop a sample link budget for the DCPI link and model its performance. A protocol will then be designed that will allow maximum flexibility in the communications with the DCP. A prototype will be developed to ex ...

  2. Improved Water Level Measurement System

    SBC: Sutron Corporation            Topic: 842

    This project provides an improved design for the dual-orifice bubble gauge for water level observations in cold regions. The improvements consist of using optimized true-differential sensors and specialized processing to improve the accuracy, particularly in the presence of water waves. The prototype will be designed based on a numerical model of the dual-orifice gauge that includes the time-dep ...

  3. Pipe Disbondment Detection and Coating Assessment Using the Dynamic Wavelet Fingerprinting

    SBC: SOLERS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Existing pipe inspections ae incapable of reliably detecting coating disbonds. Conventional above ground surveys cannot detect disbonds because of shielding conditions, and traditional guided wave inspection systems are unable to reliably detect subtle non-axisymmetric flaws. Finally, most of the advanced ultrasound technology in industry has been focused on inline inspection systems which are i ...

  5. A Rapid Breath Test Assess Bovine Respiratory Disease

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bovine Respiratory Disease is the most costly disease among cattle arriving at feedlots and results in decreased weight gain, lower quality meat and death. BRD is highly transmittable and a rapid and sensitive diagnostic method for BRD is not currently available. This project will validate a state-of-art biomedical breath analysis sensor to assess the respiratory health of cattle. Our goal is to i ...

  6. Efficient Conversion of Solar Fulx Into Rural Energy Sources

    SBC: LuXsine Energy Company            Topic: N/A

    An important problem facing rural America is the lack of job opportunities. This is particularly true in much of the arid southwestern U.S. These rural communities have little that they can export into commodity priced markets. Hence, this region has among the highest incidence (% of county population) of poverty in the U.S. Yet, the southwestern U.S. has abundant solar energy which could provide ...

  7. A New Technique to Ease Collection of Cattle Electronic Identification Numbers

    SBC: ZigBeef LLC            Topic: N/A

    The short read range of current cattle electronic identification ear tags threatens to hinder the widespread adoption and utility of the USDA-developed National Animal Identification System (NAIS). Tag readers that require placement within inches of an animal's ear in order to read the NAIS number introduce obstacles at various points in the beef production cycle. This project will determine if be ...

  8. Design of an online professional development resource for mainstream teachers of English language learners.

    SBC: Development Associates            Topic: N/A

    There is a significant need for new professional development options designed for mainstream teachers of English Language Learners (ELLs). This Phase I project will address the growing national need by defining an online Professional Development Resource (PDR) designed specifically for these teachers. The PDR will provide core concepts and strategies related to ELL instruction; it will be self-c ...

  9. My Scrivner TM: Innovative Technology to Enhance Fine Motor Function

    SBC: Obslap Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project creates a rehabilitation intervention prototype, My Scrivener TM, for fine motor skill development and instruction in printing. My Scrivner TM consists of two personal computers, two force-feedback peripheral haptics devices, a cable or internet connection linking the two workstations and associated software. The project develops new classroom-ready instructional software incorporati ...
