  1. ACOUSTIC VOLUMETER FOR THE RAPID ESTIMATION OF THE FAT CONTENT OF AN ANIMAL

    SBC: Hydronautics Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE ABLE TO PREDICT THE FAT CONTENT OF LIVE ANIMALS DESIGNED FOR FOOD. SUCH KNOWLEDGE MAY BE USED TO GUIDE DIET REGIMENS, BREEDING AND SELECTION PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO PRODUCE A LEANER PRODUCT. ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN METHODS OF ESTIMATING THE FAT FRACTION IS BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT OF TOTAL BODY DENSITY (WEIGHT/VOLUME). THE METHOD IS NOT USED IN PRACTICE BECAUSE THE VOLUME MEASUREM ...

  2. Acousto-fluidic Sensors For Optimizing

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Insect pests are annually responsible for multi-million dollar grain losses. A promising detectionsystem is the ARS-developed Acoustic Location Fingerprinting Insect Detector (ALFID) which countsinsects in a grain sample by pinpointing sounds from individual adult and larval (potentially the mostdestructive in wheat) stages. The low-cost piezo-electric microphones currently used are sufficiently ...

  3. Activated Carbons From Pecan Shells:

    SBC: Rio Grande Environmental            Topic: N/A

    This project addresses two problems of environmental and economic importance to New Mexico.The first problem is the value-added utilization of pecan shells, and agricultural waste from oneof New Mexico's most important crops. The second problem is the need to remove metal andorganic contaminants of environmental concern from wastewater produced by some of NewMexico's economically important indust ...

  4. A Multiple Antigen Direct Elisa For Diagnosing

    SBC: Commonwealth Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) is a retrovirus that causes a chronic infection in horses. In theabsence of a vaccine, the control of this disease depends on the diagnosis and elimination of infectedhorses. Currently approved diagnostic procedures utilize agar gel diffusion (AGID), or enzyme-linkedimmunosorbant (ELISA) methodologies to detect antibodies against the virus in horse sera as e ...

  7. CHARACTERISTICS OF OYSTER RACK STRUCTURES IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY

    SBC: World's End Aquaculture Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NATIVE OYSTER PRODUCTION AND POPULATION HAVE FALLEN DRAMATICALLY IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY. THE PUBLIC FISHERY HAS BEEN DECIMATED BY DISEASE WHILE THE PRIVATE CULTURISTS HAVE BEEN BURDENED BY A RIGID LEGAL AND SOCIAL FRAMEWORK. A METHOD OF PRODUCTION WHICH UTILIZES THE EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE PUBLIC FISHERY AND THE DISEASE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES OF THE PRIVATE CULTURISTS NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED. T ...

  8. COUNTY AGENT ADVISOR SYSTEM (CAAS)

    SBC: Xmco, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    XMCO HAS IDENTIFIED AN OPPORTUNITY TO CONDUCT RESEARCH TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A COUNTY AGENT ADVISOR SYSTEM (CAAS). THIS INNOVATIVE CONCEPT WOULD INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TECHNOLOGY, SPECIFICALLY HYPERMEDIA TECHNOLOGY WITH EMBEDDEDEXPERT SYSTEMS, TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND REQUIREMENTS OF COUNTY AGENTS. THIS MEETS A USDA NEED FOR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED TECHNIQUES FOR DYNAMIC PRA

    SBC: Frh, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CHANGES IN PLANT STATUS, EITHER BEFORE OR DURING AN ACCIDENT SEQUENC CAN CONSIDERABLY AFFECT ITS OUTCOME; BOTH THE ACTURAL OUTCOME AND THAT PREDICTED BY PROBABILISTIC RISK ASSESSMENT. IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY REPRESENT THE POSSIBLE ACCIDENTS AND THEIR PROBABILITIES, THE PRA MODEL MUST CONSIDER THE DYNAMIC CHARACTER OF THE PLANT, IT'S SYSTEMS AND OPERATORS. A LIVING, DYNAMIC PRA IS ONE IN WHICH ALL T ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEP BOREHOLE PERMEAMETER TO DETERMINE UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES DEVELOPMENT OF A DEEP BOREHOLE PERMEAMETER TO DETERMINE UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES

    SBC: Daniel B. Stephens & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PREDICTING THE RATE OF SOIL WATER MOVEMENT AND THE IMPACT OFAGRI-CHEMICALS ON WATER RESOURCES IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO MANAGING AGRICULTURE, FOR OPTIMIZING PRODUCTIVITY AND MINIMIZING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. SOPHISTICATED MODELS FOR MAKING SUCH PREDICTIONS ARE AVAILABLE, BUT DATA ON SOIL HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES ARE DIFFICULT AND OFTEN EXPENSIVE TO OBTAIN. IN FACT, AT DEPTHS BELOW THE ROOT ZONE THERE IS ...
