  1. Rugged Electrodes for Mapping Sediment Habitat

    SBC: ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENT SYSTEMS            Topic: 835

    Currently no commercially available voltammetric electrode system exists which can operate in the water column, water/sediment interface or sediment. These electrodes need to sense a variety of electroactive species in the marine environment, which are biogeochemical relevant to understanding the Essential Fish Habitat. More importantly, these electrodes must be able to take the punishment of mu ...

  2. Feasibility of an ultrasonic based instrument for assessing in-situ pipeline coatings

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FBS, Inc. proposes to establish the feasibility of an ultrasonically based device for in-situ evaluation of pipeline coatings and for the archiving of coating properties. Based on our experience gained through DOT and EPRI sponsored work on long range ultrasonics, buried pipes, and tar coated pipes we recognize the need for coating characterization not only as an important factor for inspection d ...

  3. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Technology Inc. has demonstrated for the first time, the detection of non-visible cracks of less than 10 microns soon after casting of high performance concrete test prisms. Fine cracks may be associated with the two leading causes of concrete deterioration, delayed ettringite formation and alkali-silica reaction. Laser Technology is a leading developer, manufacturere and provider of laser ...

  4. Processing of Poultry Manure for Fuel Gas Production

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies and challenges the capacity of existing landfills. However, this potential problem also represents an opportunity for remote biomass power production systems based on heating the manure in the absence ...

  5. Large Scale Production of Sex-Selected Embryos by In Vitro Fertilization In Cattle: A New Opportunity for Global Business

    SBC: EVERGEN BIOTECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In natural reproduction, the sex ratio is approximately 50:50. In the dairy industry, only female animals (and very few male stud bulls) are productive and most male calves are slaughtered with little financial return to the farmers. This natural limitation costs the dairy industry billions of dollars around the globe. Selecting sex of offspring has long been a dream in the livestock industry. The ...

  6. Partial Saturation Ebb and Flood Watering System

    SBC: Green Growth Properties dba Geremia Greenhouse            Topic: N/A

    Conventional watering uses hose or boom irrigation systems to apply excess water to ensure complete coverage of the entire crop to the point of full saturation of the root medium. This method is costly in terms of water and nutrients. Water falls outside the area of the pots and is lost to the environment. Excess water may leach up to 75% of the fertilizer from potted plants. It may be necessary t ...

  7. Fouling Free Surface

    SBC: Omega Piezo Technologies            Topic: N/A

    PHEs (Plate Heat Exchangers) are widely used since they exhibit excellent heat transfer characteristics which allow more compact designs than are achievable with conventional shell and tube heat exchangers. Along with their easy maintenance and other advantages, the PHEs have become the prime choice for the dairy and food processing industries due to their relative ease of cleaning (compared with ...

  8. Prevention of Ozone Layer Depletion by Methyl Bromide Used for Soil Fumigation

    SBC: Value Recovery, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Methyl bromide, an effective soil fumigant, has been identified as one of the worst depleters of the ozone layer. Methyl bromides strong suit, its reactivity, is also its Achilles heel. Over 80% of methyl bromide used in 1990 was used for soil fumigation and this application has been targeted directly for elimination. Consequently, the Montreal Protocol (1987) signed by 187 countries, outlawed the ...

  9. Social-Simentor: Interactive Simulation e-Learning Tool to Develop Interpersonal Skills for Individuals with Cognitive Disabilities to Improve Hiring and Retention

    SBC: Access Tech            Topic: N/A

    An interactive application that employs social interactions to teach key social conventions, including appropriate responses, reacting to body language and facial expressions, and the ability to ask for help to facilitate functioning in society

    SBIR Phase I 2005 Department of Education
  10. Providing Universal Access to Passengers of Commuter Rail Systems; a System to Bridge the Gap from Platform to Rail Car

    SBC: Marshall Elevator            Topic: N/A

    Development of a compact device that can be retrofitted to existent rail cars or integrated into new rail cars to provide quick, safe, easy and independent access for all possible rail passengers
