  1. Low Cost Instrument for Automatic Determination of Cloud Cover

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a continuing need for reliable cloud observations to drive climatic UV-B prediction models. Traditionally, observations such as cloud cover are made by human observers, and thus often suffer from uncertainties due to the subjectivity of the observer. Cloud cover data is especially important in UV-B hazard prediction, as well as storm prediction. It is generally accepted that UV-B doses ...

  2. Instrument for Measurement of Global and Direct Components of Solar Ultraviolet-B Radiation

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project would lead to the development of a low cost ($10-20,000) solar ultraviolet-B radiation instrument capable of measuring the narrowband direct, diffuse and global solar spectral radiation in the 300-368 nm wavelength range. This new instrument is an extension of the well-proven multifilter rotating shadowband radiometer and would substantially improve the existing measurement o ...

  3. APPLE PACKING LINE VISION ROBOTIC SYSTEM FOR DEFECT REMOVAL

    SBC: AGRI-TECH, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    APPLE PACKING PROCESS STILL IS DONE BY HAND. ALONG THE APPLE CONVEYERS, WORKERS ARE PLACED TO MONITOR THE PASSING APPLES AND REMOVE THE ROTTED, DAMAGED, DISEASED APPLES AND FOREIGN MATERIALS. THIS LABOR INTENSIVE WORK IN A WET AND DIRTY ENVIRONMENT IS NOT ONLY TEDIOUS AND CAUSES FATIGUE TO EYES, BUT ALSO DIFFICULT TO PREVENT THE UNDESIRABLE OBJECTS FROM PASSING THROUGH THE LINE. IT HAS BEEN AN INC ...

  4. INTERNATIONAL TRADE ASSISTANCE FOR RURAL AREAS USING EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Columbia Cascade Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RURAL AREAS IN THE UNITED STATES OFTEN HAVE TROUBLE GAINING ACCESS TO, AND UTILIZING, ADVANCED COMPUTER TECHNOL0GY; PARTICULARLY TECHNOLOGY WHICH PROVIDES READY ACCESS TO THE WEALTH OF INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTION ON THE INTERNATIONAL TRADE PROCESS. WHILE THERE ARE A VARIETY OF COMPUTER-BASED SYSTEMS WHICH FURNISH TRADE LEADS OR ASSIST WITH DOCUMENT PREPARATION, THERE IS A LACK OF EASILY ACCESSIBLE ...

  5. OVER-THE-HORIZON DATA/VIDEO LINKS FOR RURAL AREAS

    SBC: Signatron Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL INVESTIGATES AN EXTENDED LINE-OF-SIGHT RADIO TECHNIQUE FOR LOW-COST DATA AND VIDEO LINKING OF RURAL ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS. EFFECTIVE RURAL WIDEBAND COMMUNICATIONS ARE OFTEN HAMPERED BY THE DIFFICULTY OF OBTAINING RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR CABLES AND/OR BY THE COST OF LEASED LINES OR SATELLITE CHANNELS. DIRECT RADIO LINKS WOULD BE ATTRACTIVE DUE TO THEIR NON-INTRUSIVE NATURE, P ...

  6. WATER RESOURCE DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM

    SBC: Computation Geosciences            Topic: N/A

    A NEW GENERATION OF OBSERVATIONAL METEOROLOGICAL AND HYDROLOGICAL DATA IS CURRENTLY COMING ON-LINE. INFORMATION ABOUT RAINFALL AND WEATHER CONDITIONS WITH SUCH HIGH TEMPORAL AND SPATIAL RESOLUTION OVER A LARGE AREA HAS NOT BEEN GENERALLY AVAILABLE FOR HYDROLOGIC AND WATER RESOURCE APPLICATIONS. THIS NEW GENERATION OF OBSERVATIONAL DATA COUPLED WITH ADVANCES IN HYDROLOGIC MODELING AND COMPUTATIONAL ...

  7. LOW-COST CERAMIC MEMBRANES FOR FOOD PROCESSING

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CERAMIC MEMBRANES ARE RAPIDLY EMERGING AS A NEW TECHNOLOGY IN MEMBRANE SEPARATIONS. HOWEVER, COMMERCIALLY-AVAILABLE DEVICES HAVE HIGH COSTS RELATIVE TO POLYMERIC MEMBRANES, TYPICALLY FIVE TO TEN TIMES HIGHER. THE TECHNOLOGY TO BE DEVELOPED EMPLOYS A UNIQUE APPROACH TO CERAMIC MEMBRANE MODULE DESIGN. THE MODULE CONCEPT SHOULD RESULT IN PRODUCTION OF CERAMIC MEMBRANES WITH A COST LESS THAN THOSE FOR ...

  8. HIGH-SPEED DRYING OF SPACEBOARD II

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    AN APPARATUS AND TECHNIQUE FOR HIGH-SPEED DRYING OF A NEW STRUCTURAL MATERIAL, KNOWN AS SPACEBOARD, WILL BE DEVELOPED. SPACEBOARD IS A NOVEL STRUCTURAL BOARD COMPOSED OF PULPED WOOD FIBER. THE SPACEBOARD CONCEPT WAS INVENTED AT THE FOREST PRODUCTS LABORATORY SEVERAL YEARS AGO. THE BOARDS ARE PRODUCED BY PRESSING FIBER AGAINST COMPRESSIBLE RUBBER MOLDS TO FORM A STRUCTURE HAVING A SMOOTH FACE, BACK ...

  9. MICROWAVE SENSORS FOR MACHINE VISION INSPECTION IN FOOD PROCESSING SYSTEMS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY IS FINDING WIDESPREAD USE IN MANY INDUSTRIES, THE FOOD INDUSTRY IS ONLY JUST BEGINNING TOINTRODUCE SUCH TECHNOLOGY IN PRODUCTION FACILITIES. IN PARTICULAR, THERE IS A NEED TO INCREASE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS IN A NUMBER OF AREAS INCLUDING NEW SENSORS AND MONITORING SYSTEMS, ROBOTIC TECHNIQUES, AND APPLICATIONS OF VISION SYSTEM FOR PRODUCT EVALUATION AT INTER ...

  10. A BOOTSTRAPPED METEOROLOGICAL THERMOMETER

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD RESULT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE FIELD INSTRUMENT FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE TO AN ABSOLUTE ACCURACY OF 0.01 DEGREES CENTIGRADE. THE PROPOSED INSTRUMENT WOULD SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVE OUR ABILITY TO MEASURE AMBIENT AIR TEMPERATURE AND, IN ADDITION, IT WOULD BE ACCURATE ENOUGH SO THAT IT COULD BECOME A STANDARD INSTRUMENT FOR THE CALIBRATION OF FIE ...
