  1. Simple Optical Vibration Sensor for Small Objects

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Commerce
  2. Small Absolute Gravimeter

    SBC: Micro-g Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will test the feasibility of a compact absolute gravimeter for use in rugged field environments such as ocean floors and the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica. The accuracy of the measurement should be better than 5x10^-7 m/s^2 (10 uGal) in an observing period of 24 hours. Phase I will show the feasibility of a new miniature optical design and fringe detection system. We will demonstrat ...

  3. Digital Waveform-Based System for Acoustic Emission Measurement for Nondestructive Testing of Structural Steel

    SBC: Digital Wave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Digital Wave Corporation proposed to develop a novel nondestructive testing (NDT) system for high speed acquisition and analysis of wide band acoustic emission (AE) waveforms. The system will provide the capability to detect, identify and locate crack growth in loaded steel structures. This system will incorporate the new high fidelity sensor developed by the Federal Highway Administration and a ...

  4. "Transportation Planning Decision Support Systems"

    SBC: In Motion            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase II 1996 Department of Transportation
  5. Fruit Inspection Using a Liquid Crystal Tunable Optical Filter Multispectral Camera

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Currently, fruit is sorted for bruises and blemishes by hand. This is an inefficient and labor intensive method for detemining fruit quality, in need of automation. It has recently been determined that visible and near infrared multispectral imaging is useful for extracting several fruit quality characteristics. In order to acquire information in several bands as fruit is processed, a high thro ...

  6. Protein Quantity and Quality for Channel Catfish Feeds

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    Protein is the most expensive component comprising a catfish feed; thus, a reduction in feed cost can most likely be achieved by either reducing the concentration of dietary protein, by using less expensive plant proteins, or by a combination of these factors. Feedstuffs of animal origin are expensive yet they are generally considered to be essential in catfish feeds. If low-protein, all plant-p ...

  7. Wireless Telecommunications Infrastructure for Rural Communities

    SBC: Integrator Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Rural community telecommunications services are far behind the state-of-the art as found in urban areas. As a result, rural communities may not participate in the benefits of access to the National Information Infrastructure now being defined. Recent advances in wireless communictions technology, and FCC authorization of Personal Communications Services (PCS), present an opportunity to define a ...

  8. Real Time Information System to Estimate Processed Grain Value Over the U.S.

    SBC: Quetzal Computational Associat            Topic: N/A

    The influence of environmental conditions on specific grain quality characteristics such as oil, starch, and protein contents in major grain crops has been known for the last several decades. Within the past several years incentive to predict the value of grains prior to harvest has increased due to significant price differences paid for grains possessing specific quality characteristics. There ...

  9. Removal of Selenium from Agricultural Drainage Waters Using Emulsion Liquid

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

    Agricultural drainage waters emanating from irrigation projects in seleniferous lands in the western United States are a major source of selenium contaminated waters. Because of selenium's known toxicity and teratogenicity to waterbirds, the discharge limits adopted by the California State Water Resources Control Board are very low (0.005 mg/L). Therefore, in order to prevent selenium poisoning, ...

  10. Introducing Commercially-Viable Internet Access to Rural and Frontier Communities

    SBC: Supernet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will focus on research to develop both the community processes and the product/service mix for an Internet service provider to make introductory implementation of Internet access commercially viable in rural and frontier communities. Development would include template and software resources that would provide for local content (remotely hosted) and interactivity, as well as affordabl ...
