  1. An Ultrathin Foil Neutral Density Filter Set for the Infrared

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A solution to the need for OD 3 to OD 10 neutral density filters in the infrared (2 to 25 um) with flat wavelength dependence is suggested using submicron thickness polymer films as substrates for multi-layer or co-deposited metallic alloy coatings. Initial studies used Lexan and although they showed feasibility, a stronger and more temperature resistant ultrathin substrate such as polyimide film ...

  3. Ultrahigh-Pressure Cryogenic Jet Cutting of Steel

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project will advance the state of the art of ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) jet machining technology. Existing technology uses water as the working fluid that accelerates abrasive particles in high-velocity, highly coherent jets. Despite successful demonstration and industrial utilization of the technology in cutting, cleaning, drilling, turning, milling, and surface-preparation operations, it re ...

  4. Transportation Planning Uses of Commercial Data

    SBC: Kjs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For more than three decades, transportation planners have relied on survey data collected specifically for the development of travel forecasting models, which are expensive to collect and maintain on an ongoing basis. There is a plethora of data collected for other reasons that could potentially support transportation planning which is becoming more accessible through technological advances. Use ...

  5. Protein Quantity and Quality for Channel Catfish Feeds

    SBC: Indi-Bel, Inc. dba Delta Western Research Center            Topic: N/A

    Protein is the most expensive component comprising a catfish feed; thus, a reduction in feed cost can most likely be achieved by either reducing the concentration of dietary protein, by using less expensive plant proteins, or by a combination of these factors. Feedstuffs of animal origin are expensive yet they are generally considered to be essential in catfish feeds. If low-protein, all plant-p ...

  6. Biocontrol of Botrytis Cinerea on Greenhouse-Grown Ornamentals

    SBC: Eden Bioscience Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    Floral production in the United States has an estimated value of over $11 billion. Geraniums and roses together constitute a significant portion of this value. Grey mold, caused by Botrytis cinerea Pers.:Fr. is prevalent and often devastating under the cool, moist conditions which are common in greenhouses where the crops are produced. The fungus attacks all of the above ground portions of the ...

  7. Fiber-Wall-Filled Thin Hardboard from Low Cost Waste Paper

    SBC: Fiber Research International,            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is the exploration of the feasibility of adapting the fiber-wall-filling technology to improve the properties of wet-process thin hardboard from low-cost waste paper. The patented fiber-wall-filling technology precipitates insoluble inorganic salts within the microporous anatomy of paper fibers. These inorganic depositions comprise the carbonates, silicates, sulfat ...

  8. Automated Connector for Lateral Move Irrigation

    SBC: Hydrodog Irrigators Company            Topic: N/A

    Continuous lateral move irrigators are distinctly superior means of irrigating farmland. Presently, no means exists to affordably, reliability, and efficiently connect the laterally traveling irrigator with a stationary mainline. Consequently, most irrigation is presently accomplished with much less efficient means. Water, electricity and fertilizer are wasted resulting in reduced yield and gro ...

  9. International Market Information Network for High Value Food

    SBC: Northwest Economic Associates            Topic: N/A

    This project addresses a critical need: fast transfer of timely market information to and among sellers/marketers of high-value U.S. foods. The method to transfer this information is a Bulletin Board System (BBS). The heart of the BBS will be a collection of computer-accessed, constantly updated files of sought-after (but hard-to-get) market research/market intelligence information. The focus ...

  10. Development of IPN Resistant Commercial Rainbow Trout Stocks

    SBC: TROUTLODGE INC            Topic: N/A

    It is estimated that 3 billion rainbow trout eggs were required to produce the world farmed harvest in 1994. The majority of these fish are reared in areas where infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) virus is endemic. Unfortunately, mortalities are highest before the fish are fully immunocompetent, making vaccination a less effective tool in disease prevention. Increasing the natural resistance ...
