  2. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  3. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...

  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. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  10. CHARGED ULTRAFILTRATION MEMBRANE DEMINERALIZATION OF BRACKISH WATERS FOR IRRIGATION

    SBC: Mickley & Associates            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED FEASIBILITY RESEARCH IS TO USE A UNIQUE GRAFTI ING TECHNIQUE TO MODIFY MEMBRANE MATERIALS IN SUCH A WAY AS TO RENDER THEM USEFUL FOR SPECIFIC WATER TREATMENT SITUATIONS. THE WORK WILL SPECIFICALLY FOCUS ON THE DEVELOP MENT OF THE GRAFTING TECHNIQUE FOR POROUS MEMBRANE MATERIAL S. THE TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEMONSTRATED BY THE GRAFTING OF CHARGED MONOMER AND POLYMERS ONTO SEVERAL MATERIALS ...
