  1. Feral Swine Population Control Enabled by An Intelligent Species-Specific Recognition System

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 83

    Feral swine (Sus scrofa) populations in the United States inflict serious and growing ecological and economic impacts to the farming and ranching ecosystems where their population continues to grow and invade new territory. These invasions ultimately impact the security, quality, and safety of the food supply and water resources coming from these regions. Recent and ongoing research is investigati ...

  2. GameteGuard: A Novel Method to Counteract Fertility Decline in Dairy Cattle

    SBC: MEMBRANE PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 83

    Fertility in artificially inseminated dairy cattle has declined as milk production has increased, and is one of the most costly challenges faced by today's dairy farmer. This fertility decline causes economic losses of >$300 million annually, losses due in part to damage incurred by sperm during the handling, cooling, freezing and thawing necessary for artificial insemination. For it is the qu ...

  3. A low-cost pathogen detection system is proposed comprising an incubator-reader unit as well as a low-cost consumable paper-based indicator test strip.

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. This project seeks to develop a complete system for easy pathogenic bacteria detection for the food supply chain. The proposed kit will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor). By delivering a complete pathogen detection solution, the kit will ena ...

  4. Validation of Segmented Flanges for Large Diameter Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    At sites ranging from Texas to Iowa, utility scale wind has become the lowest cost electricity source available, with recent prices well below 3cents/kWhr, lower than the cost of both coal and shale gas. This not only provides these communities with clean, low cost energy, it also provides a valuable "second crop" to the land owners in these areas. However, this opportunity is currently limited to ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A DIFFERENTIAL GPS NAVIGATION FILTER WITH AUTONOMOUS FAILURE DETECTION

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE FILTERING TECHNIQUE THAT CAN BE USED TO DETECT AND REJECT OUT-OF-TOLERANCE MEASUREMENTS FROM A DIFFERENTIAL GPS NAVIGATION SOLUTION. THE TECHNIQUE CAN BE APPLIED FOR BOTH MOBILE AND STATIC APPLICATIONS AND COULD BE INTEGRATED INTO SHIPBOARD OR REFERENCE STATION GPS RECEIVERS. USING THE FILTER DESIGN PROPOSED, ERRORS CAUSED BY MULTIPATH, SATELLITE, RECEIVER ORR ...

  7. RESEARCH ON AN AIRBORNE WIND SHEAR SENSOR

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE RECOGNIZED LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR PHENOMENON KNOWN AS A MICROBURST POSES A SERIOUS AIR SAFETY THREAT TO COMMERCIAL AVIATION WHILE IN A LANDING OR POSES A SERIOUS COMMERCIAL AVIATION WHILE IN A LANDING OR TAKEOFF PATTERN. THIS LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO DE A THIS LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO SEVERAL CRASHES OF COMMERCIAL AIRLIN ...

  8. RELIABLE STRENGTH ASSESSMENT OF WOOD COMPOSITES

    SBC: Engineering Data Mgmt Inc.            Topic: N/A

    METHODS FOR RELIABLE ASSESSING THE STRENGTH OF WOOD COMPOSITES WILL BE DEVELOPED USING NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION PROCEDURES INVOLVING SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF STRESSWAVE PARAMETERS. THESE PROCEDURES ARE BASED ON THE EXTENSION OF PREVIOUS RESEARCH ON NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF THE STRENGTH OF WOOD UTILITY POLES. THEY APPEAR TO OFFER CONSIDERABLE PROMISE AS RELIABLE STRENGTH PREDICTION METHODS FOR OTH ...

  9. NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF FINGER JOINT STRENGTH

    SBC: Engineering Data Mgmt Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, NO METHOD EXISTS WHICH CAN RELIABLY DETERMINE THE TENSILE STRENGTH OF AN ADHESIVE-BONDED FINGER JOINT USING NONDESTRUCTIVE PROCEDURES ONLY. THE USE OF ACOUSTO-ULTRASONIC NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR THE FEASIBILITY OF PROVIDING STRESS WAVE PARAMETERS WHICH CAN BE CORRELATED WITH JOINT TENSILE STRENGTH TO DEVELOP PREDICTIVE EQUATIONS. THE PROCEDURE WILL FOCUS ON DEL ...

  10. CURRENT ECONOMIC AND DEMOGRAPHIC ESTIMATES FOR COUNTRIES (CEDEC)

    SBC: Mcginess & Williams Dual Comm            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH TO DETERMINE IF ECONOMIC AND DEMOGRAPHIC DATA WHICH ARE AVAILABLE FOR COUNTIES ON A REASONABLY CURRENT BASIS ARE VALID. THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ECONOMIC AND DEMOGRAPHIC DATA WHICH ARE AVAILABLE ON A CURRENT BASIS FOR COUNTIES WILL BE COMPARED FOR RECENT YEARS WITH REFERENCE DATA FROM ESTABLISHED STATISTICAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD RESOURCES. IF THE CURRENT ESTIMATES ARE RELIABLE FOR S ...
