  1. Quality and Efficiency Improvements of Micropropagation Through Automated Grading

    SBC: Adaptive Equipment, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. micropropagation industry is a $24 million business supplying starter plant material to greenhouses around the world. However, in order to compete with the increasing numbr of offshore laboratories, U.S. micropropagators must produce higher quality plants more efficiently. The goal of this project is to develop automatic grading technology that will reduce production costs, improve qual ...

  2. Development of a Rural Safety Mailbox

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Current designs for rural safety mailboxes combined with a lack of safety design regulations, produce a hazardous situation for errant rural motorists. When impacted, rural mailboxes have been shown to dislodge from their posts and penetrate automobile windshields. In addition, rural residents are faced with a constant maintenance problem from winter snow plows, vandals, and vehicle impacts. A ...

  5. Percolating-Bed Anaerobic Composting of Food Waste

    SBC: Full Circle Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Technologies which contribute to sustainable agricultural productivity while conserving air, water, soil and energy resources are desperately needed. Nutrients, especially nitrogen, and energy contained in wastes from agricultural products need to be returned to farming operations to improve sustainability. Policies which promote recycling of municipal solid waste streams are creating new market ...

  7. Pulsating-flow Reverse Osmosis for Seawater Desalination

    SBC: Aetri            Topic: N/A

    Reverse Osmosis, as an effective method for recovery of fresh water from seawater by desalination, is gaining considerable attention. The problems associated with reverse osmosis process are the concentration polarization and membraine fouling, which cause the decline of membrane flux and require the use of higher system pressure and regularly cleaning. Frequent cleaning not only is a cost operat ...

    SBC: Analex Space Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop new or improved systems for electronic processing and management of text and images (film and video from electron and optical microscopes. Processing electronic images with film quality creates unique problems with both analog and digital formats. Tradeoffs in cost, convenience of use, speed, flexibility and quality must be made in order to integ ...

  10. A Multi-line Towed Array as a Bearing Ambiguity Resolution Sensor (BARS)

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Under the current U.S. Navy budget constrained environment it is desirable to get added functional performance from existing sonar systems. One such case is the need to provide instantaneous bearing ambiguity resolution for threat torpedoes at tactically significant ranges via U.S. Navy Surface Ship towed arrays. A multi-line towed array sonar system is recommended as a Bearing Ambiguity Resolut ...
