  1. Composite Cylinder Life-Cycle In-Service Assessment

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: 101PH1

    Current inspection, maintenance and lifetime estimation practices for composite cylinders have been adopted from earlier NASA research. WavesinSolids LLC are proposing a technological based on an acoustic emission (AE) technique for the in-service testing of composite cylinders. The approach will establish the correlation between AE activity and intensity metrics and the stress intensity factor, a ...

  2. New Drop-in Biofuel to Meet Renewable Fuel Standards

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 88

    The Energy Policy Act of 2005 established a minimum usage volume for renewable fuels. First-generation biofuels, predominately corn-derived ethanol, served to meet the initial goals of the program. Ethanol consumption in the US reached 10.6 billion gallons last year. Ethanol has many benefits as a biofuel, with the most important being that it is a naturally occurring product of the metabolic proc ...

  6. New Technology for Breeding Superior Tetraploid and Triploid Eastern Oysters

    SBC: 4CS BREEDING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 87

    We presently manage the production of tetraploid oyster broodstock which is used by hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard to produce triploid oysters(triploid oysters are sterile and grow faster and larger than diploid oysters). Our tetraploid broodstock is not resistant to Dermo, a disease that frequently kills many eastern oysters. The research supported in this project will allow us to produce ...

  7. Use of Hydroponic and LED Technology to Grow High Nutrient Lettuce, Spinach and Arugula in a Small, Urban, High Density, Indoor Farm

    SBC: METROCROPS, LLC            Topic: 812

    In the industrial northeast there is an under-fulfilled, year round demand for fresh, locally grown produce. The demand is measured by the steady growth (13% per year nationally) of farmers? markets since 1995. This project will use innovative hydroponic and LED technologies to study and verify if high nutrient, high quality greens can be grown cost effectively in small, urban, high density, indoo ...

  9. Enriching Rural American Farmers And Their Communities By Enabling Broadcasters To Power Transmitters With Wind Energy

    SBC: ROBERT MILLER CONSULTING LLC            Topic: 86

    Regions in the US with wind levels suitable for producing substantial renewable energy are located in the predominantly agricultural center of the country where population density and therefore demand for electrical power are low. Transport of power from wind farms in this section of the country to the coastal regions where population and the need for power are high is limited by the capacity of t ...

  10. Development of marker free crown gall resistant roses.

    SBC: NOVAFLORA, INC            Topic: 82

    There is an urgent need for an effective chemical-free control measure for crown gall. Crown gall is a major disease of many perennial crops. It is especially a problem in long-lived woody crops such as roses, where galls on rose bushes render plants unsalable. In the case of woody fruit and nut producing crops such as walnut, grapes, pears and apples, galled trees and vines are less productive. L ...
