  2. AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SHELL PADS TO ESTABLISH OYSTER SEED BEDS AND COMMERCIAL REEFS

    SBC: Continental Shelf Assocs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON AN ALTERNATE MATERIAL, ANHYDRITE CALCIUM SULFATE, FOR USE AS CULTCH IN CONSTRUCTING SEED BEDS AND ARTIFICIAL OYSTER REEFS IS HEREIN PROPOSED. GIVEN THE FACTS THAT OYSTER PRODUCTION IN THE UNITED STATES HAS DECLINED GREATLY SINCE 1908 AND THAT NATURAL OYSTERSHELL IS SCARCE AND EXPENSIVE, MOTIVATION FOR USE OF THIS ALTERNATE MATERIAL AS CULTCH INCLUDES ITS CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION, LOW COST ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYSIS TOOL FOR HIGH AND LOW VELOCITY ICE INDENTATION PROBLEMS

    SBC: Simtex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TWO MAJOR OBSTACLES CONFRONTED PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS TO ANALYZE FIELD ICE BEHAVIOR; NAMELY: THE LACK OF PROPER CONSTITUTIVE LAWS TO MODEL REALISTIC ICE BEHAVIOR, PARTICULARLY AT HIGH STRAIN-RATES, AND THE DIFFICULTY IN INCORPORATING LARGE ICE DEFORMATIONS IN THE ANALYSIS. THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS A STUDY WHICH WILL IMPLEMENT AN ICE CONSTITUTIVE MODEL SUBROUTINE TO WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH A LAGRANGE EXP ...

  4. FLAW DETECTION, SIZING AND LOCATION BY DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING SPECTRUM TECHNIQUE

    SBC: Florida Nuclear Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HEREIN INVOLVES ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH TO CAREFULLY EVALUATE AND FURTHER DEVELOP THE DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING TECHNIQUE FOR ACCURATE NON-INVASIVE DETERMINATION OF VOIDS, CRACKS, FLAWS IN MATERIALS AND THE DEFECTS SIZING AND LOCATION CAPABILITIES OF THIS METHOD. THIS NEW DEVICE, WHICH WE HAVE TERMED "DIFFERENTIAL GAMMA SCATTERING SPECTRUM PROBE (DGSSP)," IS B ...

  5. GLOBAL CONVERGENCE PROCESSING OF STEROSCOPIC IMAGES

    SBC: Coprocessor Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL INVESTIGATE A THREE DIMENSIONAL VIDEO DISPLAY SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM WILL NOT REQUIRE VIEWING APPARATUS (SPECIAL GLASSES, ETC.) AND IS COMPATIBLE WITH EXISTING TV SYSTEMS. IT WILL USE A BASIC STEREOSCOPIC 3D TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED SEVERAL YEARS AGO, BUT THE NEW SYSTEM WILL INCORPORATE UNIQUE IMAGE PROCESSING THAT CORRECTS DEFECTS OTHERWISE INHERENT IN ALL SYSTEMS THAT DISPLAY STEREOSCOPI ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  6. IMPROVED DRILLING TOOL CONTROL SYSTEM

    SBC: Larry Russell & Assocs.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IMPROVED DOWNHOLE DRILLING TOOL CONTROL SYSTEM PROVIDES A SIMPLER, LESS EXPENSIVE, AND MORE RELIABLE MEANS OF OPERATING MANY TYPES OF DRILLING, TEST, AND COMPLETION TOOLS. THE SYSTEM IS OPERATED BY TEMPORARY INCREASES IN PUMP PRESSURE, WITH AUTOMATIC COMPENSATION FOR CHANGES IN HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE. THE SYSTEM PROVIDES FEEDBACK, IS OF FULL-BORE DESIGN, IS COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER TYPES OF TOOLS, ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  7. NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF MISCIBLE FLOODING

    SBC: Reservoir Simulation Research            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED PREDICTIONS OF PETROLEUM RESERVOIR PERFORMANCE ARE NEEDED TO REDUCE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH FIELD SCALE MISCIBLE FLOODING. A MAJOR SHORTCOMING OF CURRENT PREDICTION TECHNIQUES IS THE FAILURE TO ACCURATELY MODEL THE EFFECTS OF MOBILITY RATIO AND VISCOUS FINGERING ON VOLUMETRIC SWEEP AND DISPLACEMENT EFFICIENCY. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL DEVELOP IMPROVED NUMERICAL TECHNIQUES FOR THIS PRO ...

  8. Quantum Cryptography Single Photon Detector Chip

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: DMEA142001

    AET will perform R&D to develop a quantum cryptographic single photon counting system (or detector) consisting of a high performance integrated circuit chip and detector (such as an avalanche photodiode) for use in a secure fiber optic communications link. Quantum cryptography applies an encryption scheme that uses a series of single, polarized photons that act as the key between the sender an ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: A chemical assay kit for the high-throughput screening of chiral amine enantiomeric excess

    SBC: Enantiosense LLC            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to commercialize new sensor technologies that enable the rapid measurement of the handedness of molecular mixtures. Like screws and keys, many molecules possess a certain handedness that can be important when interacting with living systems. This issue is vital to pharmaceutical research, where one handed form of a drug may result in benefits while the opposite form ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: A New Approach for Isolating Leukocyte Sub-populations to Enable Efficient Manufacturing of Cellular Therapies

    SBC: HALCYON BIOMEDICAL, INC.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will be to develop a microfluidic device for cell therapy manufacturing. Advantages in terms of cost and quality of the cell products produced by the proposed technology should benefit clinical researchers and cell therapeutics. Further, by providing an efficient, standardized, and scalable ap ...
