  1. Phased Array Technique for Low Signal-To-Noise Ratio Wind Tunnels

    SBC: OPTINAV INC            Topic: A302

    Closed wind tunnel beamforming for aeroacoustics has become more and more prevalent in recent years. Still, there are major drawbacks as current microphone arrays are rather larger and hard to install and conventional beamforming and deconvolution techniques do not work well in low signal-to-noise environments. Outlined in the proposal is a phased airfoil imaging microphone array located inside th ...

  2. A Low Cost Sensor for Mid-Chord Offset Measurements

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 141FR1

    This Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing low cost and high accuracy local position sensors and transmitters to autonomously estimate Mid-chord offset in rails. The two innovative parts of the proposed system are (1) a set of miniature and highly accurate local position sensors and transmitters for estimating the absolute positions of the mid point and end points of a 62 ...

  3. Development of Equipment Washers for Invasive Plant Protection

    SBC: Kennedy, Sheilah A            Topic: 081FH3

    SK realistic estimated timeline of 18 months maximum, hopefully sooner, will allow for design, engineer and testing modifications to be addressed. SK learned from Phase II that even the simple modifications can result in hours of engineering and design work. The successful completion of the DOTWASH system was designed and developed. The overall components were tested with good operating capabiliti ...

  4. Rural-Health-Mate: A Tele-Monitoring System That Improves Rural Senior's Healthcare Via Monitoring, Communication And Stakeholder Interact

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: 86

    Although rural seniors (people 65 years and over) are living longer, they frequently require ongoing support from caregivers and medical professionals to make that possible. However, rural America has long been represented as having a unique set of obstacles and conditions that make the delivery of caregiving and medical services for seniors difficult.In this project, CreateAbility will conduct fo ...

  5. Model Based Control for Dryer Energy Conservation

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Producers of solid and liquid biofuels need to reduce both capital and operating costs to achieve unsubsidized cost parity with fossil fuels. Many biomass feedstocks destined for conversion platforms must be dried, however, the capital cost for dryers is high due to long residence times and the operating cost is high due to system inefficiencies. Consistent and reliable operation of biomass dryers ...

  6. A Low-Cost Quantitative Anemia Detection Method for Livestock

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 83

    Gastrointestinal parasites are the most important pathogens of sheep and goats worldwide. Anemia is the primary sign of internal parasite infection, and many sheep die of blood loss anemia secondary to abomasal parasites. Anemia results in pale mucous membranes and conjunctiva in animals and humans. This SBIR project will develop a mobile App to determine the hemoglobin blood count in large animal ...

  7. A Particulate Mass Flux Sensor for the Food Process Industry

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 85

    Currently, the vast majority of food products are made using batch processing. However, in most manufacturing operations, continuous processing methods provide for higher efficiency as well as greater quality in the finished product. This paradigm is not yet present in the food industry due to one primary reason. Processed food products need to have the correct amount of ingredients mixed together ...

  8. ADVANCED CONTROL SYSTEM FOR BIOMASS COMBUSTION

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: 81

    Combustion of biomass, especially in small-scale applications, produces high emissions of particulate matter (PM) that have been linked to adverse health effects and global climate change. Current industrial particulate control solutions are prohibitively expensive for use in small scale biomass burners. To overcome these challenges, inexpensive and effective combustion control solutions for small ...

  9. Genetic Sex Reversal in Rainbow Trout

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: 87

    Female rainbow trout show improved uniformity of growth, more desirable carcass traits and reduced expression of sexual maturation compared to mixed-sex stocks, thus improving efficiency and return for the trout farming industry. As a result, all-female stocks are much more desirable, and currently comprise the vast majority (over 90%) of the rainbow trout sold in the US. Current methods of produc ...

  10. Modular Shading Structure for High Value Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: 813

    Commercial farms growing high value fruits and vegetables use shade structures to create protected environments. These growers benefit from bigger yields, better quality produce, fewer pests, timed crop growth, and resource conservation. Unfortunately, shade structure use is limited for many small and medium size farms who lack economy of scale. Commercial shade structures available today are very ...
