  2. A Thermal Distillation Process for Expanding Water Resources

    SBC: AIL Research, Inc            Topic: 84

    A Thermal Distillation Process for Expanding Water ResourcesDr. Andrew Lowenstein AIL Research Principal InvestigatorMost of the world's freshwater usage—as high as 70%—goes to agriculture. Unfortunately inmany of the country's major farming regions secure sources of agriculture water are threatened:freshwater aquifers are being over pumped coastal saltwater intrusion is tainting fre ...

  3. Fast Curing Modular Composite Patch System for Field Applications

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: SOCOM07002

    SOCOM requires a method to field repair multiple materials as well as to mount armor and related hardware for a variety of tactical purposes with a composite material. To address this need, we propose application of a “Modular UV Patch” (MUVP) system that incorporates ultraviolet curing resin systems and an innovative technique for delivering the UV light through optically lossy fibers that f ...

  4. An In-Line Test for the Colorimetric Determination of Somatic Cell Count

    SBC: PORTASCIENCE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, PortaScience successfully built an automated prototype unit for determining the somatic cell count of dairy milk samples using a liquid colorimetric assay. The prototype unit can perform the following functions: sip milk samples, add buffer/dye solutions, mix all solutions and generate a voltage reading at a fixed timed interval yielding quantitative values for the somatic cell count. ...

  7. Materials Characterization & Manufacturing Development of an Irrigation Ditch Liner System

    SBC: FastDitch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The productive use of surface water for agriculture has become a critical national and international priority as competition for water resources increasingly outpaces supply. This is demonstrated by the World Bank's investment of $3 billion a year in water projects. Small earth-lined irrigation ditches are used to deliver water from larger canals or streams directly to field ...

  8. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  10. Environmentally Safe Polymeric Wood Preservatives

    SBC: NOVAFLUX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The results of the Phase I study demonstrated that modified polybiguanide (PBG) compounds have the ability to significantly protect wood against fungal decay according to the soil block standard at treatment concentrations below 1% without toxic heavy metal ions. Phase I results also indicated that the soil block test could not quantitatively differentiate the merits of the ...
