  1. 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. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Tractor-Based Real-Time System for Drift Reduction and Disposition Prediction

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 813

    This effort addresses an opportunity to dramatically improve the efficacy and safely of applying pesticides and herbicides to crops, by developing a real-time, onboard sprayer control system that will predict spray drift and ground deposition as they occur, providing corrective measures to mitigate drift and improve application. Combining the accuracy of existing precision agriculture tools with t ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY TO EVALUATE AIRCRAFT VORTEX WAKE INTENSITY

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE DOES NOT EXIST TODAY A UNIFIED MEANS OF EVALUATING THE VORTEX INTENSITY BEHIND COMMERCIAL JET LINERS PRIOR TO PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING AT FULLSCALE. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, DATA AND ANALYTICAL DEVELOPMENTS HAVE PROVIDED MUCH ADDITIONAL TECHNOLOGY WHICH MAY MAKE POSSIBLE THE PREDICTION OF WAKE INTENSITY AND DECAY FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES. THE OBJECT OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS TO DEMO ...
