  1. Cost-Effective Manufacturing of a Novel Selective Algaecide for the Fresh-Water Aquaculture Industry

    SBC: Nature Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 815

    The cost-effective manufacturing of a novel algaecide against blue green algae in fresh-water aquaculture operations has great potential for controlling ¿off-flavor¿ problems in pond-raised catfish. The proposed natural-based algaecide has selective activity for blue-green algae as well as a more favorable environmental performance profile with little/no activity towards complimentary phytoplan ...

  2. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  5. Critical Data Processing for Chemical Warfare Simulant Field Testing- Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: CBD05110

    To properly measure (and understand) the performance of a standoff detector, properties of the challenge cloud must be known. Meteorological models, such as HPAC and VLSTRACK, have proven to be reasonably good tools for predicting cloud properties. However, a problem with these tools is that they deliver ensemble averages and may not describe a specific cloud to the detail required. The Dugway ...

  6. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  9. NEURAL NETWORK FEATURE CLASSIFICATION

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    GIVEN A SET OF IMAGES OF SEA SURFACE PARAMETERS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO CLASSIFY LAND AND OCEAN AREAS. HIGH CHLOROPHYLLCONCENTRATIONS IN ESTUARIES CAN INDICATE PLANKTON BLOOM CONDITIONS. BY EXAMINING SUCH IMAGES, WETLAND, ESTUARY, AND COASTAL RESOURCES CAN BE MONITORED. HOWEVER, THE OPERATIONAL USE OF THIS INFORMATION IS HINDERED BY THE OBSCURING EFFECTS OF CLOUDS AND BY THE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF DATA TO B ...

  10. DIVER MONITORING SYSTEM FOR PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS

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

    THE MONITORING OF DIVER PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIABLE, SUCH AS HEART AND RESPIRATORY RATES, MUSCLE FATIGUE AND BODY CORE TEMPERATURE, IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE BECAUSE DIVERS OCCASIONALLY EXCEED SAFE PHYSIOLOGICAL LIMITS. DIVERS ARE CALLED ONTO PERFORM TASKS WHICH REQUIRE A HIGH LEVEL OF EXERTION, OFTEN UNDER UNFAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS. UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, AN INDIVIDUAL CAN EXPERIENCE FATIG ...
